A thousand things to say to catch up....

I can't believe I have neglected my blog for so long!  Life has been so crazy for me lately , I just didn't have the time or energy to post here but that changes as of today! You see,  I have been struggling with a job I had come to hate and it was really bringing me down.  So, with love and support of my DH, I quit my HR job and will now have more time for blogging, crafting and creating! Yippeeeee.  I will be searching for ideas on how to create a job to earn some cash doing what I love best....crafting and teaching.  So if you have any ideas of what you would like to see me do, please share!

I have also been doing the Provo Craft demos every Sunday at Michael's since May.  It has been fun and I do love sharing my crafting passion with customers.

This job last until end of June. We are waiting to hear if the schedule will be extended...keeping my fingers crossed on that.   So far I have been demoing the Cricut Cake, the Expression, the Gypsy and this coming week I get to demo the Yudu.  Getting some hands on with all of these products has been fun.  Plus I have met so many really nice ladies that are part of the Cricut Demo Army that share the same crafting passion.  The talent in this group is off the charts and so inspiring!

Plus I have been busy with all the High School and College Graduation Parties of  some of our friends kids and our best friend's 25th Anniversary party. I did get to be a little creative with packaging up their gifts....and yes, I used my Cricut to create  these customized gift bags.
Joan got an amazing scholarship and  is going to Notre Dame...yes, she is a brilliant girl !  I did her bag in ND colors...the green on the bottom left says "Go Irish"!  She was so thrilled when she saw this bag.  Plus the gift inside of a Vera Bradley laptop bag...in you guessed it...blue, yellow and green !  Good luck Joanie...hard to believe you are going off to college...seems like just yesterday you were a little girl.

And Kristen got a scholarship to Houston Baptist University.  She loves Pink so I couldn't resist creating her a big PINK gift bag with her initial on it!
And I did create a gift bag and 25th Anniversary Plate to celebrate our best friend's Bob & Anne special anniverary. DH and myself used to double date with these two in high school so we all go back a loooooooong way !  Wishing them at least another 25 years more of wedded bliss! 

So you can see that I have been a very busy girl.  Still no excuse... I will do better posting and sharing creative ideas that I hope inspire you so stay tuned !

Glad to see you are having fun with the cricut demos at Michaels. I work part-time at Michaels but could not commit to all of those weekends during my son's high school baseball season.....
