Messy Makeover

Here are photos of my son's room. Since he is off at college, I am going to redo his room into a craft room. This wasnt a project I was planning on jumping into right away. He has only been gone for 4 days. However, since we got a kitten the night after he left...and I have all my craft stuff downstairs. JJ loves to jump on, climb on, and chew on all my stuff. I go back to work in 5 days so I will be busting my butt to do the sanding (I already patched the holes & taped off the edges of the floor boards), priming and painting. Then I have to lug all my stuff upstairs. That will be the hardest part of all LOL. I will try to remember to take "after" photos.

New Family Member

Here is the newest member of our family. Her name is J.J. which is sort for "Just Jewl". If anyone watched Will & Grace should remember Jack and his one man show "Just Jack" with the jazz hands. Well my husband and I were texting each other trying to come up with names. We both like Jewl. I suggested Black Jewl and my dh wrote back just jewl- so it was sort of a joke when I asked just Jewl or Just Jewl. So then we came up with JJ. She is such a little spit fire compared to our 11 1/2 year old cat, Lacey.

Frankie Challenge

Here is a cute Halloween card that I made. It was a challenge that Dawn had. I used different colors than she did; and I used the word window punch from Stampin Up! for Frankie's neck. I don't like how the mouth came out on my card.... When I finish my craft room I will have to try to make another one. (That might take me awhile). But what a sweet & simple card that I could make the students I get this year.

Broadway Bound

I have to post this because I am so excited! My girlfriend and I are going to NY in a few weeks. We are going to see Equus. We said last year that if it came to Broadway we wanted to go. Well tickets went on sale & we were all excited. Then we figured the cost and it was just too much to take the train to NY, hotel etc. We were so bummed. Then my girlfriend remembered this tiny little tour bus company that she and another friend went on a long time ago. Well, they just happened to have a tour bus going to NY that weekend!! Well guess what. We are going. Bus reservations have been made & tickets have been mailed! Look out NY here we come. Hopefully I can get some really nice photos with my camera.

Off to College

Here is a card I made my son. It will be a surprise for when he arrives at college. It is from his cat that he has had for 11 1/2 years. My husband picked her out of the litter but my son named her & he has belonged to her ever since. The stamp is a retired TAC stamp. I used the cuttlebug smoosh from Technique Junkies Newsletter
