I got this idea when I noticed the cart Once upon a Princess had "angel/wings". I don't have that cart so I created it with my gypsy. I welded a n g e l  then welded it to the wings then welded the halo onto the "g". I then copied it and deleted the wings, halo so I could make it a different color. I did another halo so I could use metalic cs.
carts used: dove(beyond birthdays), angel (childs year), halo (George and Basic Shapes) and the wings (gypsy wanderings).
cardstock: SU perfect plum, whisper white and glossy white
                 LSS gold metalic
The sentiment was done on the computer.

you can't tell but the angel/wings have SU deminsionals and I slighly curled the wings up.
the wings have stickles-diamonds and angel as glossy accents. Its so pretty!!!

I'm going to make about 12 cards so I'll be prepared. In the past I've gone to the store because I'm just TOO SAD to create.

NEW craftROOM!!!!!!!!!

Clic on pic to enlarge!
YIPPIE!!! After several weeks I'm DONE with my very own craftROOM!!!!
GEEZ!! it wasn't easy...LOL!! when you have a "spot" for crafting, thats it! you make the best of it but when you have a WHOLE room..... you can't decide where and how to put everything!!!! I lost count how many times I moved everything around and around and around...ROTFLOL!!! I'm HAPPY with this set up!!
The door to my new ROOM!!!! in time I'll cut out some vinyl letters "CRICAHOLICS' ROOM".

this is what you see when the door is opened

this is the wall to the right, thats my sewing cabinet. Yes, I sew too (clothes)! LOL...the cabinet has been in storage since my Mom moved in cause there was no room for it. I'm so EXCITED that I can start sewing again!!! the black filing cabinet is my personal files.

The "HEART" of the room....My crafting area!!! I LOVE these free standing shelving units from the "Container Store". You can easily move them around and adjust the shelves and NO HOLES in the wall!!!
Then my jetmax cubes are on a homemade dolly for easy moving.

the wall to the left is my cart from WM and it has my Imagine, Expression and mats below. I HOPE my Momma will quilt me a cover for the Imagine.....(I sew clothes, I don't quilt!). Everything is plugged in, I just pull the cart to me when I want to use it. LOVE IT!! The wall hangings are what my Mom quilted.

This is my jetmax cubes paper storage on a homemade dolly with my HK big shot. The shadow pic is me....when I was about 5-6 yrs old.....ROTFLOL!!!! AHHH!! I just noticed my wittle fur baby is peeking in.

I broke down and got an IMAGINE!!!!
WOWZA!! I had no where to put it(its HUGE!!!), so I went on line http://www.walmart.com/ and got this cart.
It is PERFECT!!!!! I LOVE IT!!!! free shipping too if you pick it up at the store.

I have my Imagine on top and my Expression on the 2nd shelf -there's plenty of room I don't need to move my expression when I open it.(there's a lip on the shelves and it does NOT interfere with the mats) and on the bottom I have my 12x24 mat and my cricut mats to the left and my imagine mat on the right. This cart is SUPER NICE and VERY STURDY and very easy to put together.

my imagine looks naked...I wonder if my DM will make a cover for it to match the other one.....LOL!!

NEW craftROOM!!

OK! My DS moved out....this is going to be MY NEW craftROOM!!!!!!

LOL..thats one of those "shadow" pics of me when I was little.
NICE HUH? ugh..now I have to move my craft stuff in......stay tuned.....
