I should..........

Here's a lit of some 'I should's'.

I should be sleeping right now but instead I'm unpacking after a weekend retreat.
I should be doing laundry.
I should be doing dishes.
I should be packing lunch.
I should be updating my blog more.
I should include fun pictures of things we've been doing and layouts I've made.

I will eventually get to all of this but right  now I'm enjoying life too much.

Look for some fun, project filled posts in the next day or so.  Also, there will be a blog hop this Friday so keep an eye out for more details!

Mobile scrapping

I've taken my hobby on the road.  Not to a crop but to hockey practice.  I'm spending a lot of time in the rink these days cultivating the next hockey superstar which cuts into my crafty time.  So I'm making time when I can.

These two layouts were thrown together last week for the LSS I design for.  I picked up some new product the week before and made these:

 The new Glitz Designs nautical line.  I got every piece of this line I love it so much.
 A stitched anchor!

This next one is made with an older paper line.  I just tried to search for their website and it doesn't exist.  A quick search tells me that they may no longer be in business.  Either way, I love this line and the store has the full line for sale.  The line is by Trinity Paper Arts.

 Some {flair} and more stitching.  I stitched the detail of the woody to make it stand out more.  Some Glossy Accents make the windows.
More Glossy Accents on the beach balls that were fussy cut from one of the papers.

And a few more stitched details - swirls around the flowers.

And I'm cleaning house again.  I keep finding boxes of products that I need to get rid of somehow.  You can find pictures and prices on my Flickr page.  Just email me is you're interested in buying one.

Name Tags with {Flair}

When Shelley released this set I grabbed one!  My mother and grandmother are both knitters.  They meet friends during the week and have knit-ins, they are members of a Guild and they attend conventions and workshops regularly.  Most of these require them to have a name tag.  Some of the women in their group have tried to do something crafty with their nametags so they stand out.

I showed my mother the flair set as soon as it was released and she asked if I would use one of the buttons on her nametag.

I used my Silhouette to cut out their names and the yarn.  Papers are from the new Fancy Pants Out to Sea line.
