Long time , No Blogging!

Alrighty then! So it has been an extremely long time since I have posted. I have even been known to check my own blog just to see if something magically appeared..no such luck. It was my intention once the kids began school to pursue this venture in hopes of having a creative year. However, I have been bogged down with day to day stuff and instead of updating my own blog at the end of the day I spend countless hours surfing other blogs. This is not to say that I haven't been creative. For instance I got "creative" with money an in an effort to be a "good American" I used part of our tax return to stimulate the economy and I bought the Cricut Expression. I must admit this machine is not only better than sliced bread, I think it could slice bread. I promise to post some pictures of what this thing can do.

Recently I found a blog of a supper creative woman named Nicole Heady and I have been "lifting" her ideas. This was my favorite, the Cupcake Take Along. I couldn't resist and I ordered some of their products and went to town.

The Supplies used for this particular project were: Cardstock;PaperCompany, Patterned Paper;Stampin'Up, Glassine bag and test tubes;Paper Trey Ink, Ribbon;JoAnns

I also made one for each of my kid's teachers, they were for Valentine's Day, and I made one for my brother for his birthday. They are super cute and fun to make.

I end this post with a great quote by Emily Dickinson: "To live is so startling it leaves little time for anything else"

I will be posting more, both creatively and just to update the ever so comical thing I call being me. My goal is to not have it be 9 months between each post!
