Now what?


The Cosmo Cricket altered project I was going to show you today got picked up yesterday by Papercrafts magazine for their cards and gifts issue. So, not sure what to do now. Speaking of publications, if you happen to have the latest issue Nov/Dec issue of Memory Makers Magazine, I'm your calender girl. A layout of J is in the calendar section. I haven't seen that layout in months, I'll have to dig it up and post here.
So, I can show you some other things I've been working on. Completely off the topic, is it normal when you have a little boy to have a fleet of vehicles in the living room? Just curious. J learned how to say please yesterday, and he says it in the cutest little voice (peas). It's just the best.  I made this quick layout with Fancy pants journaling tags, loved how the journaling is already done for me. I'm all about that.


And here is another card for the mail this week. See, this is why you have to be a crafter because I don't think you would get very far going into hallmark asking for a spooky thank you card that was just as spooky as your gift. Gotta do that yourself I guess. 

Cosmo Cricket Spooky Thank you card
Supplies: Cosmo Cricket Haunted Patterned paper in Macabre, Ominous, and Nevermore ; plus K & Company glitter sticker.
Instructions: Cut Cosmo patterned paper-4 x6 for background Macabre; 3.5 by 3.5 for accent Ominous; and 2 x 4 for Thanks piece Nevermore. Adhere sticker.
It's going to be a busy day, tomorrow is Halloween. This weekend is Day light savings time fall back on Sunday too. Hope you are plowing through that to-do list, I know I'm trying. My purse strap broke yesterday, working on sewing that back now, but honestly I'm debating a new purse. It's just that I kind of like this one, I know it's old but it's me. I really don't handle change well.

Don't worry about the living room, it is either trucks or barbies, and when you have a boy and a girl..you get BOTH. Enjoy Halloween, and Yea for your pubs!!!

Fabulous layout! Congrats on your publications and yes, the vehicle fleets are totally typical. (I have four boys. Stepped over many convoys. LOL.)

fleets of vehicles...why yes, they are currently in my shower (?), my dining room, and my closet. :)

Congrats on the pub and love your spooky card! :) No fleets of vehicles with my son - he was more into dinosaurs and Transformers and Power Rangers - plenty of those were around when he was little.
