I'm NOT Crazy...Maybe a little bit Obsessed?!

I am so addicted to garage's not even funny! My hubby is so very kind enough to support me in my quest to find the ultimate bargain. So usually first thing on a Saturday morning he gets online to scope out listed garage sales that sounds like they have potential. He basically looks for anything listed that sounds crafty...anything that he thinks I can take on as a project.

A few weeks ago we went to an Estate Sale, as soon as I walked in the door this adorable little medicine cabinet caught my eyes. I kinda liked it already worn in but saw more potential in it... perhaps painting it a pale baby blue? It's just been sitting here on my table waiting to be put to good use. Still brainstorming on what exactly I want to do with it. I better think of something fast cause you know what tomorrow is? Saturday...which means more garage sales to be visited, more treasures to be found and more projects underway.

I am so Distress[ed]!!!

I have recently become a Tim Holtz fanatic! I got so excited after seeing that one of the major chain craft stores was carrying his products. This week I went crazy with all the "Distress Ink" color pads. I had a coupon that I was able to use which justified me going bananas purchasing more than one. I am so excited to put them to good use.

hmmm...what project from my list should I work on next?! I can't make up my mind...I'm so "Distress"[ed]!!!

-Inspiration Box-

I got this idea from one of the local stamp shops in the area. I was unable to attend the class so I decided to make one myself. I fell in love with the project cause it combined 2 of my faves: 7Gypsies paper and Tim Holtz "trinkets" as I like to call it. I think it came out pretty good considering this was my first attempt at such a project. I also made a few motivational cards to put inside with inspiring messages and images. I have a few ideas of what I would do differently next time. Live and learn right?


Hello everyone and welcome to my world. I started blogging over 3 years ago when my daughter was first born. Had a lot of fun with it so finally decided to start one for myself where it would tell the story of my life and not about my family life. I'm real excited to see my little site take off as I build my place from scratch. This is just the beginning...I'm anxious to see where it'll lead me!
