So Busy....Sorry

I am so behind in my blog. :( Sorry. I have been crafting. I just don't get pictures and then blog about my craftiness fast enough. Between birthdays, and more birthdays, and cards, and upcoming gifts, and my 15 year old driving EEEEK.  It seems every moment of the day holds something for me...and I never get around to blogging.

I wanted to share a gift that I made for a coworker.  I made the Candy Bar purse as designed by Cindy over at Crazy for Crafting. I really love her designs. I can't seem to get enough of them. I had made another one of these with paper that had high heeled shoes on it, but my sister took it for a gift for a friend of hers. I guess that means that she liked it.hehe. One thing I have learned with making all these little boxes and bags is that you need a little more than just the ATG tape sometimes. Denise over at Paper Pastime recommended Fabri-Tac Permanent Adhesive on one of her videos for items that you really want to stick. I have found it very handy for projects and especially gift boxes or bags that I don't want to pop apart on my friends as they open their gifts.

One other thing I've been doing is purchasing some things off of ebay.  One of things is the Cricut Jukebox.  I am finding it very handy...especially since I purchased about 15 cartridges on Ebay as well. So at least you know now what I'm doing....crafting and purchasing to support my habit. lol.  Next weekend is my Mom's 60th birthday you know there's gonna be some craftiness there...stay tuned.
