Another card set. Seems like I'm stuck on stationary sets lately!! I need to force myself to move on to something else.
The Paper and merci stamp are from Papertrey Ink (Stampers Select White and Raspberry Fizz). The Eiffel Tower stamp is from Michael's Recollections "French Flourish" stamp set.

My View

This is pretty much my normal view when crafting. Meet Piper, our 6 year old Yorkie. He hangs out in my craft room with me (either on the bay window seat or on his little bed next to my craft table). He loves to watch people walk by. His face just makes me laugh.

Finally - SMASH is here!

I've been waiting forEVER! My SMASH order has finally come in today.
I ordered; 2 journals (Pretty Pink and Mod Black), date stamp, travel pad, blue bands and a SMASH stick. I figured I'd need an extra stick to just follow me around. Although I have a feeling that once my sister spots it, it will be hers :)
Can't wait to open everything and look through it. Admittedly, I don't know why I purchased two of them. I know I will use one to store travel related ideas and notes. Not sure about the other one yet.

A place for everything and everything in its place. Well, maybe not everything.
My new Stanton drawer chest from Home Decorators came...twice.
Received the first one, it was damaged. Called and had them ship a second. PERFECT. (Great customer service people).
The item came with casters but I've decided not to use them yet.

Cricut Expression 2 in da house

Finally! The machine is in it's place. Now for the long process of updating my Gypsy (aka "Gigi") firmware and getting the two of them acquainted!

This weekend I put together a few stationary sets. I was able to get the patterned paper and the black cardstock(Michaels, Recollections) for $2.50 a pack. The vintage cream is from Papertrey, Inc (as well as the stamps).
I created a few different types - all the same basic motif, just different sentiments.

Not much happenin'

I guess I have a case of the mojo blues? I hope to get back into the groove this weekend.
Here is so good news-- SMASH is open for preorder.
Just placed my order online. SMASH listed a bunch of smaller craft stores that will carry their product, but I do not have any speciality crafts stores in my area...just Michael's and AC Moore. Online is fine with me.
Hope to have a post this weekend.
