Late Night Card Party

Hi all... when you can't sleep, you make cards! YES! I find that when I create a new design I go with it... Lately I've been dealing with a bit of lack of creative mojo, so when all the idea started flowing, I started working... and usually this starts sometime after eleven at night. Are you a late night crafter or an early riser? As a home maker I try to get everything done 'house wise' before I start my crafting, otherwise I get in the middle of crafting and go... I need to put a load of laundry in, I need to vacuum the living room, I need to do the meal plan for the week, you get the general idea. Guilt for not doing said house work starts to creep it's way into my brain and then nothing crafty gets done. Paper crafting, just crafting in general is my therapy, my guilty pleasure, and my passion... what else would I blog about??? 

Well it's now almost two thirty AM, so I'm going to try to get some sleep. I've got laundry and cleaning the dining room to do tomorrow. Trying to get my house clean and ready to put up Christmas decorations the day after Thanksgiving. That's my goal....

Hellllllooooo November....

Almost a full week into November... my goals was to blog everyday, however life happens when you're making plans. Tomorrow it's back in the saddle, or craft chair, for me and I'll be belting out some great holiday cards to put in my Etsy store. So excited about this new winter collection!

Happy Monday....Seriously...

Today was great, finally got a page going with some of the great paper I got from Photo Play Paper. This paper came from the Happy Glamper collection and I am in LOVE LOVE LOVE....  My husband and I are in the process of searching for a trailer, we have gotten to the point where tent camping is just too much. We've got that kind of 'glamping' down to a science...a queen size cot with a 5 inch memory foam mattress, dutch oven baked bread, and twinkle lights in our tent... The Happy Glamper collection is fun and whimsical and has a great array of summer colors to complement your photos. Photo Play also has coordinating stamps to use as well (although I did not use them on this layout.)
