A Little Update and This Week's MIM


It seems I have been on a bit of blog break. Life has been busy! Between work, kids being sick, craft room renos and a card party I recently hosted, I have not had much creative time.

First off, I wanted to share some cards I made for a recent party I hosted for some friends. Several friends had asked me about card making so I decided to host an evening where they could try it out. Well, my little party soon turned into a big party and I ended up having 13 fabulous friends over to make cards.

Here are the cards we made:

Each guest made two of each of these three designs for a total of six cards (with envelopes). We added some fabulous snacks and rum punch to the mix and everyone had a great time! This was a lot of work as I prepped most of the cutting but it was totally worth it to enjoy something I love with so many friends.

I also wanted to pop in to share a card I made for this week's Make it Monday over at PTI.
I used my (new to me) Songbirds stamps and dies as well as several other PTI sets to create the confetti cluster background. I embossed the Songbird with some clear embossing powder and popped it up on some foam adhesive.

Lastly, we are in the process of transforming our current playroom into a family office/craft room and moving the kids playroom to the basement. Right now we are painting, installing hardwood floors and finalizing the plans for the custom desk spaces and shelving. I have been scouring Pinterest for design ideas and storage solutions. I promise to be back with pictures once it is complete!

Thanks for visiting!
