Crafty Clearance

Another 20% off!
OK, so I really want to get rid of this stuff. I'm offering another 20% off of the listed prices! You know these will make good Christmas gifts for someone.

I've been trying to clear out some things around here, and I came across my craft show box. At this point, my goals don't include relisting these items in my etsy shop because I'd like to take things in a different direction. I would like to get this stuff out of here, though. So I thought I'd have a crafty clearance sale.

I'm offering everything you see here for at least 50% off of what I had it priced plus actual shipping. I've added numbers to some photos to help identify items. If you're interested in any of the items you see here, just zap me an email at Feel free to contact me with questions you might have as well!

That's what I've been when it comes to this blog. And it's probably what I'll be for a while longer. The only scrapbooking I've done in the last several months has been for challenges, although I've been making cards like crazy--that I didn't scan or take photos of.

We'll be welcoming another member to our family on Wednesday, so I'll have many more ideas for layouts, and I have a few plans for working on my shops eventually. It's all just a matter of how long it will take me to get back into the swing of things. So I'll just say thanks to anyone who is still around, and ask you to bear with me through the dry times. I'm sure there will be many more updates on the family blog, though, if that's of interest to you.

I suppose I'll just leave off with a couple of the layouts I have done this month. These were for challenges at my favorite online scrappy site. They had an anniversary party at the beginning of the month, and that always means lots of fun challenges and prizes. Anything that motivates me to make something is a big help lately. Anyway, here you go...

I have to admit that most of the neglect of this blog is due to the fact that I just haven't had much to share. I've been going back and forth about what to do with my shops since the new baby will be here so soon. For now, I've decided to resurrect my photo cards and invitations with no other graphic design products right now. I have worked on some custom things for previous customers, but I think the cards are best for the forseeable future since most of the work on those is completed beforehand.

I have added a couple of new designs to the mix just for fun, and I have a bunch of things to relist in the next few weeks. I'm just happy to say that it's not sitting there empty anymore! I can't say so much for the other shops right now. Here are a couple of the newest designs.

a couple of cards

I thought I'd share a couple of cards that I've made for specific occasions recently.

We're in the process of going through some left over boxes and doing some spring cleaning. That also means I'm finally forcing myself to put some scrappy stuff up for sale. I've been putting that off for way too long, but I keep finding things as we've unpacked over the last several months. I'm sure I'll still keep finding more things that just need to go. Although, I'm sure it won't be as much as my husband would like to see me get rid of!

I'm still not doing such a good job...

...of getting back in the swing of things. BUT, I did actually work on a layout the other day. And eventually I'll get some scans and photos of some other things I've been working on. I'm hoping to get some scrappy time in later this week, and I'm so sad that I won't be able to spend much time keeping up with the NSD partying at Scrap Supply in a few weeks. It's just going to be crazy around here. But they always have fun challenges (which I really need right about now), BINGO and awesome prizes! Maybe I'll play the birthday card.

Headed to Michael's next week?

No pics yet. I've really got to work on finding a good setup here, but I do plan to work on some crafty stuff this week.

But I did want to share. I ran by Michael's to pick up some wrapping goodies for a wedding gift, and They gave me an extra coupon for 50% off one item next week. Word is there won't be an ad in the paper for next week, so I thought I'd send my extra out to someone who miht use it. If you're interested, just leave a contact in the comments.

But, I also got an e-mail coupon for 20% off your entire purchase next week. This one is easy because you can just print it from the link.

Happy shopping!

I need to get back in the groove.

For the most part, my shops have been neglected since the holidays just as this blog has. I've been really torn about just how to proceed. I think it was all getting a bit too complicated. So now I'm in the process of trying to decide what to focus on and where to go from here.
I've been putting off working on the templates for my announcements as well. I did work on another design several weeks ago for another CDH mom who was kind enough to share some of her photos with me. I am a bit partial to this one myself, but I haven't posted it in the shop yet because I haven't been renewing or posting for a while.

Long time...

I know. I know. So I took a bit of a break. There just wasn't much working in my favor when it came to keeping up with this crafty blog over the last few months, but I am hoping to get back in the groove again. We're recovering after having the grandparents here for the Easter weekend, and my sister is coming to stay with us for a few days this week, so it's still a bit hectic around here for the next week at least.

BUT, I finally have my scanner up and running again, so I can share a couple of layouts I've done, and I have some cards waiting to be photographed (although finding a good setup hasn't exactly happened in the new house, yet). You know--all sorts of projects in the works. I have my new crafty space to share and I'm sure there will be lots of baby-related projects to come.

One of my recent projects has been researching and learning about cloth diapers, and I think I've gotten up the courage to give this a try. If you don't get carried away, it can be a real money saver. My problem is that I get caught up by all the cute things there are out there, and I start wanting to make stuff, which takes supplies, which takes moolah, which sort of prevents you from saving money on the whole adventure. So far, I think I've found a decent outlet, though.

One of the things you need if you're using the traditional prefolds or flats or even fitted diapers is a cover. And there are lots of PUL (plasticky waterproof material) ones out there that aren't terribly expensive considering. I do plan to use these, but you can also use more breathable cover made out of wool. So, I've decided to put my limited knitting skills to the test by making a couple of soakers. I found a pattern that wasn't so intimidating, and here is the first result. This is before blocking.

I hope to make some more of these, and if they work for us, I'll probably try to advance to shorties and longies later on. I'll have to repost when I have a photo of these in use.
