I HAVE A SILHOUETTE SD AND CRICUT ITEMS FOR SALE!! I AM WILLING TO SHIP IF SOMEONE THAT IS NOT LOCAL IS WOULD LIKE TO BUY THEM . I'LL INCLUDE INSURANCE. PLEASE SEND ME A MESSAGE OR LEAVE A COMMENT IF INTERESTED. (I USE PAYPAL FOR ALL TRANSACTIONS.)
SILHOUETTE SD *$175 (less than 1 year old- has cd, booklet, USB, etc.)
What is included:
Software for Windows XP/Vista/7 and Mac OS X 10.5.8 and higher
The Silhouette is a digital cutting tool for personal use. Similar to the functioning of a home printer, it cuts paper and other materials like vinyl with a blade instead of printing onto it.
CRICUT CREATE *RARELY USED $80 (less than 1 year old, has booklet, power cord, disk, manual, etc.)
CRICUT CARTRIDGES: $20 EACH (they each have the booklet and keypad with them)
GEORGE AND BASIC SHAPES
JUST BECAUSE CARDS
LIFE IS A BEACH
I don't use the Cricut anymore, but it works perfectly. It is a great tool for many, many projects but just doesn't get used enough for me to keep it. The Silhouette SD is also great, and super versatile, but I am selling it because I want the bigger one (for bigger projects).
On Tuesday I will have a few more items to add that I have for sale, stamp sets and a couple of punches as well.

for a while. There are some things that require my complete attention. Time to grow up, time get priorities in order...all of this so I can get my career off the ground. I will be back, I promise, but for personal reasons, I have to take a break. (I know it is not much of an explanation, but this also explains why I haven't been posting anything at all for quite a while.) Sometimes you just need to stop and take care of one thing at a time, instead of trying to do too many things at once. The end result is often being so overwhelmed that you don't accomplish anything at all.
See you soon.

Hey there! I have been playing catch up here at home. I have been preparing for my State Court Interpreter Certification exam, and basically put everything on hold. For a few months. You know when you have something you WANT to do, but there is something more important you HAVE to do first? And you can't do what you want until you finish that task first? Yeah, well, I couldn't finish the "fun stuff" until I got that test out of the way. I had to study a lot, and practice. I don't have anyone here locally that can help me study, so I was on my own. In any case, the test is behind me now, and now I can get back to some of the things- like papercrafting and photography- that allow me to relax every day.
So, here is a card I made, using the first stamp I bought from Market Street Stamps. You can find it here, and you can find the Market Street Stamps blog here.
Ok, so here is what I used. The card base is Stamper's Select Cardstock in White from Papertrey Ink. The blue cardstock (there are 5 pieces, each is cut at 1/2 an inch) is from Pacific Point from Stampin' Up. To try to get even spacing, I adhered the outside strips first and worked my way in.
I then stamped the sentiment on a piece of white cardstock, (cut to 2 3/8") using Red Riding Hood from Stampin' Up. That piece was adhered on a piece of white cardstock, cut at 2 5/8". That was then adhered with foam squares to give the card some dimension. And that's it! Super easy. (Finished card size is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".)
If you aren't familiar with Market Street Stamps, check them out. They have great prices, fast shipping and the stamps are high quality (I believe they are polymer.). And their stamps are SUPER cute!
That's it for me today, we are off to soccer practice!
Have a great day!!!

The theme for this week's challenge at My 3 Boybarians is Sacrifice. You can find the link here. I took this photo after Mass on Easter Sunday. I edited it using Pioneer Woman's Actions- Edge Burn and Dim the Lights. I didn't have the correct settings on my camera, and because it was a very bright day- the photos we took are a little blown out in some areas. Ree's actions helped it look better. You can find her blog HERE. You should definitely check out these two blogs. They are two of my favorites for many reasons!

I almost hate to share this, but the laundry and Marley (and cleaning up the massive amounts of hair she sheds. The underground fence can't be installed fast enough!!) are a huge part of my everyday routine. Of course Dominic is with me all the time while Sebastian and Alex are at school and Matt is at work. Funny though, Marley is with me day in and day out, but she is in LOOOOOOVE with Matt. That maroon shirt? Matt's work shirt. She's a traitor!!
Have a great day!
