Tonight I made this cute treat bag with my Cricut Artiste cartridge and a CTMH stamp set. I am a coffee lover, and have lots of friends who enjoy it as well. I am going to put a clear bag of flavored coffee beans inside this adorable little bag and send it along with some homemade cookies to my fellow coffee fiends!I think they'll love it!

Teaching is a tough gig! I know this from 13 years of full-time elementary classroom experience. Makenna goes to a great school and her teacher is doing one heck of a job, so I made this card to attach to a home-baked treat we will be sending in to her this week. I used the Cricut Artiste cartridge for the pocket and insert, a Jenny Bowlin bingo card, and various school themed stamped images and buttons in my stash ( I have almost as much school themed scrapbook stuff as I do Christmas and Halloween!). Hope you enjoy! Hug a teacher and spoil them when you can!

Makenna started first grade a few weeks ago. Now she is gone ALL day! Kinda happy-she loves school and being around other kids, and it gives me more time to do my college course work and get crafty. Kinda sad-my baby is gone for 7 hours a day, and it's really super quiet around here! Well, except for my sweet husband being home all day with me (but he doesn't talk that much :). He got laid off in April and is still looking for work, but we are praying for something to open up soon and enjoying the time together that we haven't had for a long, long time. Anyhow, with my spare time I finally got to get crafty with my Cricut and the new Close to My Heart Artiste cartridge. I love ALL of my Cricut cartridges, but I have to say that the Close to My Heart cartridges are far and away the best bang for your buck. So extremely versatile! Here are a few examples of what I have been working on. Have a great day, y'all!
I discovered Pinterest around 4 months ago, and I am completely hooked! My favorite boards to pin from are the Food, Crafts, Fitness and Home Decor. I probably should spend way more time on the fitness part than the food part. Anyway, I am probably a little late jumping on the burlap wreath bandwagon, but once I got wind of them, I knew it would be the perfect fall decor project. I love how it came out. I sprayed the final product with Copper Glimmer Mist to give it just a little shimmer. I think the burlap roses came out cute, and I used bottle caps with some scrapbook paper centers for those. We have had a really hot summer here in Colorado, and I am SO ready for fall! I am breaking out the fall decor on September 1st, come hell or high water! Thanks for looking!
