Just Shoot Me Now!

Yep...12:01 am and I tuned in to HSN with MILLIONS of other scrapbookers and Cricut users for the Gypsy launch!

It took less than 30 minutes to convince me! And it will be here on October 5! Can't flippin' wait!

The Gypsy Debut!

I am so excited about the Gypsy...don't know why because it certainly isn't in the budget of a stay at home mom, but a girl can dream! And dream I will do because Cutting Above is hosting a contest to win one! It's a new website full of the latest industry news! Go check it out!

I can't even imagine winning such an awesome thing! I can't even imagine how much I could do with this little gem! How many times I have been at an all day event and don't want to drag my Cricut along...I tell myself that I will cut the title and embellishments when I get home! Confession: there are many unfinished pages in my albums because I never cut the darn things...even weeks and months later!

So anyway, the debut of the Gypsy is going to take place on the HSN on September 24, 2009 at 12:01 am EST [and yes I am still awake at that I will be watching]. I will be drooling actually...a girl can dream!

First Hat Sale

I sold a hat today...totally random, but a sale nonetheless! Now to make that hat!

Also, I am supposed to scrapbook tonight, but I have no mojo right now! I might just take the yarn and enjoy the company!

Working with Yarn - Pumpkins

See why I am not scrapbooking!

I just can't seem to pour my creative energies into paper right I am playing with yarn instead!

Amelia's hat is finished...Harper's itty bitty hat is finished. And to tell you the truth, Harper's turned out much better! Here are a few pics of the hats...and remember that you can click on the photos to see them larger.

And yes Kristin...stop are getting hats. But they won't be pumpkin get over it! You'll love the ones I designed for the girlies!

Do you crochet? If so...and if you want this pattern [it's free!] here! Crochet and More shared this pattern last year. Her's looks different than mine...I made some modification to make it my own, but the pattern is the same!

A Bow Holder it isn't exactly scrapbooking...but it is creative and I thought I would post it here for all to see. What do you think...

I had had it with our bow organization system...we outgrew it a long time ago and it was just too darn hard to find the right bow at the right time.

The solution...a homemade bow holder! Here is my version...

Isn't that pretty. And all the bows (ok...most of them...because this does not include croc clips, snap clips, barrettes, or rubber bands) are so neatly organized and easy to find! to find the rest of the bows...and it looks like I might need to make another one soon! Oh My!
