Just been practicing a lot lately and really trying to refine my skills. I also signed up for the clothing class that Alyce at Kit and Clowder teaches, so good! I highly highly suggest her classes, I couldn't color even half as well( I still have a long way to go) without her classes! They are well worth every penny and she will spend time helping you personally with all the homework you do.
Hope you will check out her site and get signed up!
Off to color :) Have a good night

Greeting Farm-Sweet and Toxic

Can I just first say I am having a blast being in my new craft room set up! I just love how organized it is and how I can just find everything I need. Just having a good time! Had my buddies with me Friday night just crafting away with me here.
Anyways on to Sweet and Toxic Greeting Farm set! I have always loved this set, it's just fun and so adorable. I love that it had a slight creepiness to it, but not too much that keeps it cute.
I also really love this color combo. I have decided recently to choose papers first and color combos that are calling to me and then match my copics based on them. I was doing it the other way around, which is still fine, but man it made it more difficult for me to find papers to match. I feel like this way is going much smoother for me.
Well I am off to practice some coloring! Thank you for checking out my blog and please feel free to ask any questions :) Take care!

Peddlers Pack Haul

Good evening!
Love the haul I got today :) The colors make me happy! 
I somehow stumbled into my favorite stamping/crafting store today here in town, it's called The Peddler's Pack. They are celebrating 30 years of business this year, congrats! They are the best crafting spot in town. They always have what I need and I always seem to find more hehe. So if you are ever in the town of Beaverton, OR you should stop by, you will love it!
Anyways they just started carrying Lawn Fawn stuff this past year so I grabbed a few paper packs and I had to have the stitched die set as well. So cute and the paper has such fun colors.  It's really hard not to buy all the stamp sets they have. 
I also picked up a few more Wink of Stellas. I just got my first one last week and I am in love with how they look on cards. Just that touch of glitter just adds to your images and makes everything that much better. I have a few more coming to me from Amazon hehe
The last thing I got was the mini blending tool. I have seen a lot of people using these on my favorite youtube channels so I thought I would give them a go. They seem like they work really well. Looking forward to trying them out soon. I have a cloud background that I think they will be perfect for. 
Well that's it for now, thanks for looking and hope you enjoy. Have a great night :)

Working the CraftRoom!

Happy Tuesday!
Just wanted to pop in and show you what I am working on today in the new craft room!
Love love Greeting Farm stamps! I have been collecting for quite a few years now in fact they are the reason I got into Copics, thank you greeting farm! Not sure my husband feels the same when he sees my spending hehe
I just love the purple and black together for Halloween and I knew just which little Creeper would be on my card-Miss Sweet and Toxic herself. I haven't decided if her little beau will be joining her on my card but he might make an appearance as well. Hope to get my card done tonight after the little lady goes to bed, early bedtime?-hehe
What are you all working on today? Hope you are all having a great day! See you soon

I'll post the supply list after I finish the card :)

New Craft Room

So I was changing things around upstairs last week and well you know how it goes one thing leads to another. I got an idea(rare)and thought oh this won't take too long lol, well it took about a week to get it all done. But I love the results so it was well worth it.
Basically my craft room was at the other end of the house so I was getting lonely there at night doing my crafty stuff.We have this pretty big loft area just right outside my old craft room so I got the idea to downsize and move all my stuff out in the loft. My daughter's toys were mostly in the loft so I have moved all her stuff in my old craft room and made her a playroom and art room. Whew! She loves it and I can just shut the door when its a mess and bingo its out of sight.
I had fun getting rid of stuff that I don't need and making my craft area even more organized-yeah OCD. My daughter's school is going to take all my old art supplies so they will be put to good use!
I think not only will I enjoy being out here but I think I  am going to use my stuff even more with having less stuff and knowing where everything is. But don't get me wrong I am already planning on more stuff to order, yep same old me talking !
Thanks for looking and hope you enjoy!

P.S. Don't mind the ugly ol' Costco fold out chairs, hopefully they will be replaced soon by something a little more fun! And I think this area needs a rug too. Hope to make some more fun changes soon. Thanks for looking!

The Paper Shelter Design Team

Hello and good evening,
I am very excited, giddy actually, to be posting tonight. I am entering the Paper Shelter DT call, yeah!! Fun stuff. I am so glad that I have come across this wonderful site and the digi's are just beyond cute. There are so many I want and I can't choose. Seriously I have to stop finding new digis sites because I just spend all my money lol I blame Alyce Keegan at Kit and Clowder and everyone on that FB site because they are all enablers lol ok I will take a little of the blame he he.
Ok so here is the card I am entering because I think it's a good representation of my current coloring skills :) I posted this originally in late July. Thank you Paper Shelter for letting me enter, you have a new fan here :) Have a great evening and a great rest of the weekend.  Now I'm off to my money tree to buy more digis hehe

Crayola Crayon Challenge

I gave the Crayola Crayon Challenge a go, hard stuff! Who knew coloring with crayons could be so hard. We had to try using them like Copic markers, I missed my Copics during this whole process. What did we ever do without our Copics?
It was still fun to try and see what happened. And I got to color alongside my sweet little girl and sip yummy Starbucks tea during the process. She was so cute, she told me the reason I am probably not good at doing crayons is because I am so used to Copics and she always uses crayons so it makes her a bit better at it lol the honesty of kids just cracks me up :)
Here is my mermaid using crayons, please don't laugh. Ok you can laugh, i did!
Have a great Labor Day! Oh and check out the challenge on the kit and clowder website, fun stuff happening everyday on there :)
