About Me

My photo
I am a SAHM mother of three...only one left home though. Paper crafting is my passion...I love creating things and saving memories. I also enjoy reading, baking, spending time with my friends and family, and walking my two furry children. My goal on my blog is to share something a little crafty, something yummy, and something fun every week. Thank you for visiting & comments are appreciated :)

it just gets in the way of my crafting time..and reading time!  I have had to put my crafting and reading on the back burner for a bit to start prepping for graduation and All Night Grad party (which I am the chair for), putting our house on the market, and taking care of two new puppies.  

I did get these photo announcements made and mailed out as well as the formal ones.  In the next two weeks we have prom and then Graduation on the 16th with All Night Grad Party immediately following.  I still have 10 graduation cards to make, a couple of presents to pick up, props for prom pictures to find, and prom favors to make.  All the while taking care of the new pups, going to baseball games, and finalizing all the plans for All Night Grad Party.  

I have made some nice graduation cards that I will share this week, so stay tuned!

What are you crafting today?

Bunny Blooms Card

I colored this bunny up around Easter, but never got him onto a card.  With Easter long gone, I decided to make a friendship card with him.  He is a coloring page I found.  I colored him with my Prismacolor pencils, fussy cut, and then added "pop dots' for dimension.  I added a stamped sentiment, Prima flowers, and faux stitching with white dimensional paint.  Pretty cute!                                                          What are you working on?                                                  ~Marie

Reading Challenge Update

This week I read a memoir.  It was supposed to be a "political memoir", but I was really intrigued by this book, Dear Zari.  I wish it had been as good as I expected.  While I enjoyed the writing and the stories were moving, I was confused by the author's need to constantly interject her personal tales.  I found this to be, sometimes, distracting to the story.  However, I did find the stories enlightening.  They helped give me a better appreciation for the freedoms I have and what the Afghan women have to endure in their culture.  

Now, I need to read something lighter...
