Goin Down That Road ...

I am soooo in love w/the new Maya Road products! It has more cuteness than a newborn baby.

I, like many other crafters, have been on a chipboard craze. In particular for me, chipboard mini books. Maya Road's got the books in lots and lots and lots of different shapes - crowns, birds, scalloped edges and oh, yes, circles and squares too.

And there is ribbon and rubons to boot. Again, I am on a shopping hiatus, but please do not let the Maya Road newbies register on my radar ...

What's Old is New Again!

I've been going through the boxes of 'stuff'. I have lots of stuff; too much stuff. It's a good thing that I have not made any scrapbooking/card making purchases in the past few weeks.

So, as I've gone through some of my cards and altered items (I've been searching for the right cards to send to some friends for belated birthday cards), I came across this one. I like the simplicity and the color and it seems as if I will keep this one!

From the mind of a busy girl ...

I have not forgotten about my card blog, but I have not made any cards at home in about three weeks. I did, however, attend a card class last Friday evening. It was nice and I could show some pix, but my digital cam is on the blink (I have pix that I need to retrieve from a recent wedding that I am dying to transfer to the computer).

Point is, I don't have the time to trouble shoot the cam issue, but it will need to be rectified.

Card making on hold ...

I've virtually stopped making cards and working on projects over the past week. It just got too hectic (I was in a wedding and I've been interviewing for jobs and, so I had to put the goodies away. I've made an occasional card, but mostly I'm consumed by other non-cardstock related business.

However, not making cards should not be confused w/not purchasing items to use when I resume my passion. I've ordered a few things like some unmounted stamps from Ma Vinci (can't wait to mount those babies; I got Flea Market, but I still need to get some EZ Mount and some Kai scissors to cut through the rubber); I have the heart Cookie Cutter dies from Quickutz as well as a couple of the Revolution flower dies, oh and the Thanks embossed Revolution die. I am marveling over that and I need to think of something really neat to do w/that one. If you don't know the CC dies work in the Cuttlebug.

I have some new Stampin Up! stamps (yes, I have to mount those too, but the mounting materials are included w/these). I have Happy Everything and Think Happy Thoughts sets - I wll be happy to use them!

Other goodies include more photo boxes (but not for photos, but to store the scrapbooking goodies), some stickers ... oh, sidebar: I purchased some cardstock stickers and they got bruised in the packaging and some of them are unuseable, so I sent the manufacturer an email to inform them abou the ill packaging. They promptly responded and asked for my address to send me replacements; the replacement arrived over the weekend, but funny thing, the replacement got bruised in the packaging too! Thanks none the less.

So that's the update for now ... if you are at the scrapbooking table, make a lil something w/me in mind.
