Valentine treats

Here's the treats I'll be taking into work on Valentines, I've got 20 of them done....about 20 more to go..LOL
I used the Spring Holiday Cards cart for the container cut @ 2.75" (I used my gypsy to hide the slash marks on the front). The cupid is from the Sweethearts cart cut @ 2.50" and the sentiment is from the Imagine cart Better Together cut @ 2". I'll fill them with the candy hearts. I put the cupid on one side and the sentiment on the other.

Geez! I had to make myself craft....I'm just not in the mood.  Here's my Valentine cards(I made 12).
I used the "swiss dots" to emboss, the heart shaped earth is from the imagine cart "better together" and its pop dotted with SU dimensional and cut at 3". The quote was done on the computer and cut out by hand (GASP! I know, thats why I want the Silhouette). The heart on the inside was also done on the computer and trimmed with red glitter glue and again cut by hand (eekk GADS!! all this cutting is driving me crazy). See, thats why I ordered the Silhouette.  So it'll PRINT AND CUT my sentiments, I LOVE ALL MY PC PRODUCTS TOO MUCH to neglect them. We will ALL CRAFT in harmony and I'll be a HAPPY CRAFTER!!!!  LOL

To make a long story short....(yeah right) my oldest son needs to move back home. He moved out last Spring and well, he's decided to go back to school and he can't afford rent and school. So I was willing to give him back his room and move back into a little corner in my Moms sewingroom. Remember I turned his room into my craftroom. He doesn't want his ol' room, he wants the "guestroom". The guestroom consists of a daybed and the computer/office center and of course a private bathroom. OK!!! I moved the computer center into my craftroom and tho it's a little tight.
 I LOVE MY NEW CRAFTROOM even more!!!!!! Everything is a lot closer and within reach.

old room


                                           notice the empty spot to the left of the computer..
                      that's for the SILHOUETTE!!!LOL

SEE...LOL...I can reach everything literally......ROTFLOL!!!!

OK, I had to give up the sewing cabinet, it went back to storage and I gained an ironing board but its worth it! I LOVE my NEW area and especially when the Silhouette arrives in about 3 months!!!! WHOOPIE!!! 
EVERYTHING IS CLEAN/ORGANIZED after about a 2 week transformation I can FINALLY start crafting again!!!!!!

New Year - New Craft TOY

OK! Let me just say..I LOVE MY PC PRODUCTS (expression/gypsy). I WILL continue to use them and love the cartridges I have.....BUT.....due to all the problems PC has had with their products and updates and everything.  I have finally decided its time for a NEW CRAFT TOY!!!! I'm REALLY HOPING the Easter Bunny will bring me a Silhouette Cameo!!! I"ve seen lots and lots of videos and blogs and I want a Silhouette so I can play with FONTS!!! The video links below is what convinced me I NEED ONE!!!! Just think you wouldn't have to buy anymore stamps..YIPPPEEE!!!! These videos are so COOL!! and theres so much MORE you can do too......I can't wait for Easter!!!!!
This first video is my favorite!!!





OK- saw this one the other day....aarrrgh... is it Easter yet???? this was SO NEAT!!!


Aren't these videos the NEATEST THING????? WOWZA!!! I can hardly wait.....

With the Silhouette I can print tiny letters/words then cut a shape around it and won't have to worry about my expression eatting it up...LOL...no more buying stamps either, I can design my own!!
Yeah I know, I've used the pens/markers with the expression to "write words" but its such a PAIN spacing or welding and its not a single line font and you have to color it in yourself or leave it as is.....The Silhouette will DO ALL THAT for me....it can't get any easier.........I'm SO EXCITED I don't know if I can wait for the Easter bunny.... income tax refund comes A LOT SOONER...ROTFLOL!!!!!!
