So tired!!

But it's a good tired! An "all-day-crafting-and-organizing" tired!! It all started last night...you know when you start thinking about something crafty & you just can't get it out of your head?? I started thinking about how all of my ink pads are just...there...not being used too much anymore...especially the colored ink, I usually only use black or brown now. SO all those ink pads, in my way, there HAS to be something I can do about that! So, this morning, as soon as I got up, I started working! Here you can see how it was before and here is the after...
Moved all my ink pads over to the side, but still with in reach. Added a shelf in front of my chair and moved all the stuff I use most often in front of me! That took almost all morning!!

Then, I have had an order for a baby album for a couple of weeks & decided to get started on it finally! The order is for a pink & purple album with elephants, hippos & koalas. So I knew I wanted to cut out the animals with my Create A Critter (Love that cart!!) so I start cutting...but I was having a really bad Cricut day! My machine froze, I kept cutting the wrong layer w/the wrong color!! Grrr!! So I decided to just walk away!! An hour later, came back & got back to work! Here is the almost completed album...I think I want to add a few more details...I won't bore you with ALL the pages but here are a few...






So of course after cleaning my area & then making this album...I had tons of scraps! As I was cleaning up, I started seeing some cards in all those scraps! So I threw these cards together (also did a few more, but again, won't bore you with ALL of them!!) This one is my favorite!! I had cut out the butterfly a while back when I first got the Martha Stewart Cricut cart & just put it away...thought it went really well on this card!
 And this one too, had the flower cut out already & in my "stash",,,
Well, it has been a great day of crafting & organizing! Had computer music on all day! I told my brother I went "Old School" and was listening to Pandora! (I have recently switched to Spotify!! Love it!!) But wanted to hear some Crystal Gayle, Tanya Tucker, Charly McClain, etc...and didn't have a playlist for that yet & didn't want to make one, so I went to the old back-up! LOL!!

Hope everyone is having a good weekend & staying cool! It is just WAY too hot!!

Until next time...

Wow Laura you have been busy. The book is really sweet, I'm sure the mom will love it. I have a new grandson coming in 3 weeks so I need to make one too. The cards out of scraps are very pretty. Hugs, Pam at http://craftycards4u2.blogspot.com/

Laura!! Wow, wow, WOW!! I've been browsing through your blog for a good bit of time now... Everything is AMAZING!! My mojo was depleted tonight... Until I arrived here!! There are so many things I'd love to try -- those box cards, the scrap cans... I even want to go and reorganize my craft space (yeah, I see all your punches hanging on the right there!!).

I'm so glad you left a link for me on the Love To Crop! facebook page today!! Your blog is AWESOME!! How about if you come and Guest Design for me on my blog for a day??? Will you make one of those box cards and share it with everyone?

Amy (Love to Crop) told me to come check you out and wow, I see why she sent me. You do fantastic work. I scrolled thru your older posts & I've got to know who makes the Happy Birthday embossing folder you used in the July 14th post. (It looks like a Sizzix maybe.) Where did you find it? I love it & want one too.

Thank you everyone for your wonderful comments! Amy: Yes Yes Yes!! I would love to! How exciting! I am sending you an email right now! Tami: That folder is from Indentz & I originally bought it at http://www.customcrops.com/index.php?manufacturers_id=109 but it seems they don't have it in stock anymore! I did a google search for Indentz Happy Birthday & found some on ebay and also some other sites from the UK...I know that doesn't help alot but it's a start! :) Thanks again everyone!
