Here are some pics of my new cabinets that we installed temporarily in my kitchen. We want to redo our kitchen in a couple of years so these cabinets will work for now. We have it so when we redo our kitchen these cabinets will just pull out so my husband can use them in the barn.

This is before they were installed. We moved the refrigerator over and put these right where the refrigerator used to be.

This is them completely installed you can see just a little bit of the refrigerator on the right. I really think they are going to work very well.
Off to start moving the kitchen items out of my room!! Nice weekend project!

My wonderful husband finally gave me the go ahead to take a room upstairs in our house and make it my craft room. I'm so happy but with how busy my summer has been I hope I will be able to find time to do it. The room I'm taking is what we call our "multipurpose room" it has our washer and dryer, a spare bed, and misc kitchen items in it. So there is a lot of stuff I need to find homes for before I can move in. I have to do everything in steps and not get too far ahead of myself(this is the toughest part).

I will take before, during and after shots. I want to have it done by my birthday (mid July). I'm not sure if the schedule will allow it but I'm going to try.

This has been the 5th time since I've lived here I've moved my craft area but now I have A LOT more stuff.. Can't wait to keep you guys posted of my progress of my room. Until then off to work on it!

Wedding Cake!

Man I tell you what a whirl wind couple of months. This will go down in history as one of my busiest spring/summers ever. It seems like I spend one week at home then the next week I'm traveling and then the cycle starts all over again.
Here is the wedding cake I did a couple of weeks ago in Dallas for Brad one of my friends from culinary school. He did my wedding cake 5 years ago it was great I was able to return the favor.

You can't see it in the picture but we put in a light under the cake top to change color during the reception. I hope you like it! It was white cake with lemon filling very yummy!

I hope I'm getting better

Well today was my 4th Stampin' Up! party..I keep trying to tweaking my party set up. Some people said my parties were a bit to structured and wanted a little more freedom. So today to celebrate national scrapbook month I brought a lot of my stuff and just had them have fun!! I had a great time one of my guests brought her teenage daughter and she had a blast using all my punches..Just with her saying this was cool and that was cool gave me great joy. If her mom would have let her I think she would have bought one of everything.

I still don't feel like I've had the perfect party yet but I'm learning from every one of them. My Aunt was there today and she was at my first party. I hope I will be able to find out tomorrow what she thought of this party.

I feel proud to say that at every single party I've had at least one person say to me "I'm so surprised you have only been doing this for 2 months." As I tell them; I've only been selling these products for only 2 months I've been a fan for many, many years.

I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday weekend.

Happy Crafting!

busy bee

I have been getting ready for my second party on Saturday. My craft time has been limited since my little one wants to be outside all the time since the weather FINALLY started to get nice.

I was able to craft with my niece and SIL this past weekend. This is what I came up with. My SIL is so great every time I make a new card she tells me "I think this is the nicest card you've ever made."

Here are the a couple of hostess gifts I made. If I had more candles I would be making so many more. They are so much fun and easy to make.

I have three new stamp sets and punches from the new summer catalog. My favorites is this butterfly from the Strength and Hope stamp set. I also love that for every set that is purchased Stampin up donates $2 to breast cancer research.

Have I told you I love this stamp set.

Card Time!

I found some time to make a couple of cards. I copied this off of the Stampin' Up websites and added my own touch. I used the same layout for both cards I hope you like them.

The one on the website was just the marina mist, whisper white and chocolate chip. I thought it needed a little splash of color so I added the pink flower with the pearl in the center.

This one I wanted to use a little more color on so I used my color coach to suggest the colors to match.

With Easter coming up I'm going to be a busy girl, I will be baking and we have someone coming out tomorrow to do an install for our satellite. Friday I will be finishing the cakes and we have a new bed being delivered. Also in these two days I want to put the finishing touches on a scrapbook my aunt wanted me to make for her. So I may not be posting until after Easter.

I hope everyone has a Happy Easter!
