Blogging on my new iPad

Ok, so here the little girl is all tuckered out. She has kept in the fall out zone of the fan all day, and I can totally understand why.

Plus, I am trying out a new blogging feature on my iPad. Will this help me reach out more? I really don’t know, but I hope it can help on little things and giving you glimpses of my little one.

Oh, and this picture was taken on my iPhone and adjusted using the camera bag app.

Trying to keep busy

Beyond finishing up the 40 invitations for my brother’s wedding, I am working on a collection of 50 cards for a church outing. What is up with these huge projects, even though they are cool to finish. I need to take some pictures so I can post them.

For fun, I made a card, which I, of course, immediately put in an envelope and sent out to a friend as a RAK. I also made this new LO for my little fluffy face (the “f” in face seems to get a little lost, but it is there). It makes me smile when I think of how she will look when her hair grows back from her summer trim.

I am also including two cards I made a little while ago, one of which uses that cool corner punch, which I may start using more. The cake is Cuttlebug die cut and the sentiment is a rub on.

Oh, and although I don’t have a snapshot of it, since it went into the envelope, can I just say how cool Maya Road rub-ons are. They are smooth and come right onto the paper how you want them to. There isn’t any shifting or difficulty, and what is left looks awesome. I highly recommend them. I was introduced to them at the local store Craft Fancy. Very cool place.

I have been trying to keep busy. I December, I went to a 12 hour crop at Archiver’s (once upon a time, I didn’t think I would have enough to work on in 12 hours – so not true) and I made a cool organizer from a Making Memories Desktop Storage set and Basic Grey paper with embellishments.

Well, when I brought it home and showed Mom, she said that the only thing wrong with it was that there wasn’t another one for her. Okay… so, I got another set up for it and made one for Mom. I have to say, I love American Craft’s Thickers. Of course, the ones that I put on Mom’s got a little washed out, so I am going to take a marker and kind of outline them to bring them out.

I also have started to take part in swaps over at Split Coast Stampers. It is kind of nice to make something and know that it is going somewhere. So I made these cards for a birthday swap. I also am doing a no bumps swap, but I don’t have pictures of those.

Lastly, I am starting up a pretty scrapbook for just pictures and fun (8×8). I like the idea of not always having a theme and sometimes creating just for the sake of creating, so I made this one of Zoey and her new coat. I like to think of her as the caped crusaders, the way it kind of seems to fly on her back. She is so adorable. I am not stopping the Beloit remake of my scrapbook/yearbook (12×12), but this one is more for fun.
