This is my personal blog that hopefully others will enjoy finding information on projects, ideas, etc. that I have created, scraplifted or borrowed :)

No time (or energy) for crafting... :(

So I really have been in a crafting slump.  I did end up doing these cute Gatorade bottle wraps (super easy just on the computer) for my son's birthday party.  I gave those and a pack of baseball cards to each guest.  Otherwise I have not needed anything crafty but I am getting ready to make some baby shower themed items for a baby shower in August at work.  I am planning to do a It's A Girl banner and a diaper cake.  I may also try a small mini album.  We will see what time allows!  I have also been working on my craft room and I WON (bought as my husband points out) Car Decals on Ebay so I am SUPER excited to make some new decals for our car because my flip flops that I had wore off the back window of my van :(  I also ordered some stamps online and I ordered a mat and some printable vinyl for my Imagine so maybe I will use it soon, LOL.

Here are some pics of the Gatorade bottles, the banner hung up outside, the cupcakes and cake and the birthday boy!  TFL and Happy Crafting!

Kyle's Great 8! (Part 1)

Hello everyone!  I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July!  We were on our annual vacation in the OBX which was wonderful (we have been going now for 8 years).  My sons birthday was this week and his party is Saturday so I am gearing up for his Great 8! (he is turning 8 and although Ovechkin is the Great 8 in Hockey we are having a water baseball party using the Great 8 saying).  My 8 year old LOVES sports, he always has a ball in his hand so we decided to have a water balloon baseball party (play wiffle ball but with water balloons).  On his birthday we went to a local Collegiate League Baseball game and had some ice cream brownie cupcakes I made (first time and was super easy and they loved them).

As for his party, so far I have made this banner using Varsity Letter and Sports Mania along with some ribbon I had purchased at AC Moore for my other sons end of the year baseball party sour cream containers, next I will be working on the party favors next.  I will post those once they are done (hopefully before the party, LOL). Also, here is our annual family pic from the beach!  TFL!
