My name is Tammy and I am married w/4 boys. I love to craft when I get the chance. I actually have a Shimmy Shack that is my craft shed. I am to be a Christian. Football is my favorite sport. My teams are Broncos and the Gators.
Okay...I am trying really hard to get into the spirit of Christmas but well...I am not doing so good at it. Austen just turned 16 and passed his drivers test on the 27th. Then Presten turns 18 in October so I have to get through that first before I can think of Christmas. Then after them I think I will be able to get into the swing of things. I am at a loss for the boys this year... I have a couple of ideas but not much. I've been having alot of fun lately with my walking...getting in shape. The two are in sports right now so that is alot of fun to watch them play and swim. Okay...enough on that...Here is my Christmas card. First one of the season....I loved the papers by K & Company...Then used a snowflake button and stickled Pink on it. Looks really pretty.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend...So glad tomorrow is Friday. Yipee!!!
Here is a trivet that I made from a bag of cork screws I had laying around. My mom had found a few cool ideas in a magazine and gave them to me. I decided to try the trivet. The only problem is they did not say what type of glue to use. I tried one type first and it well didn't work. Then I got out the glue gun...Works great but looks messy. Any ideas???? I want to try and perfect these as it would make great Christmas gifts.
Today was a good day...started off with a good walk...then it was Austen's birthday...the big "16". I can't believe how fast time goes by... Tomorrow he goes for his license~look out. haha I wanted to play with some stamps that I have owned for some time now. I just went with the flow and well this is the card I came up with. I used my Travel paper for the background.
I hope everyone of my wonderful blogging friends are doing well. I miss seeing all your creations. In time I will get back to seeing them. Life is well~very busy indeed.
I have been playing the past two days working on some cool papers from K & Company. (Yuletide) Being festive...sorta! I still have two more boys birthdays before I start Christmas. I'm at a loss as they are getting so much older and have all the electronics they need. Haha... I am sure most of you relate to that. School has been going good for all of them. Austen joined the swim team...Jaxten is playing school football...Colten joined Chorus and was chosen for Student counsil. Austen is also doing his college courses and aceing them so far. So all is great. Presten is loving UF and being a Gator. I still am bad no new update on me besides I am getting myself back into shape. I need to make my next appointment and put that on a major hold....bad me!
I had fun making this card...First I started off with making the banner from my cricut. I love the little button brads. I found this cute teddy bear image...I am sure one of my great blogging friends sent it to me(Dora?). So thank you to whom that may have been. :) Also, I was able to use my "wish" ticket from Carri. It was pretty fun to make.
So this weekend is my little Guy Colten's birthday...the big "9" years old. So getting ready for that. Then eight days later is my son Austen's birthday...The big "16"...a new driver in the house. Busy as usual....
Here is just a simple Halloween card...I used my gypsy and new stamp that I pick up at Walmart. It's pouring down with mega rain. So going to be a quick post. Had a wonderful lunch with my bestie today...hard to get our schedules together but it finallly worked out. I hope to get to all your blogs this week sometime. Miss seeing your creations and chats. Smiles...always, Tammy
Hello all my blogger friends...it has been a while since I have created. Yesterday I finally took some time out and made a treat box.
This is my own creation of the box made on my gypsy. It is always fun to play with shapes to create something versatile.Colten's teacher is a Mickey mouse addict. Like I am with my Minnie mouse. I used my MS punch and made the Mickey and the name (ears) from my cricut Mickey cartridge. I kept this simple. So this is for Christmas...filling it with baking goodies. I'm entering it into a challenge over at my sweet friend, Rhonda's. Please pop over and see the wonderful creations...you will be amazed. Here is where you go: http://www.decoratetocelebrate.blogspot.com/
I hope everyone is doing great. So sorry I haven't been to your blogs in a long time...
Things are just not back to normal yet.
I kinda put my testings on hold as I need to get in to the urologist next. :(
Miss ya...and hopefully soon I will make my rounds. Atleast I did finally get something
