A little somethin' somethin'

I started cleaning up my pig pen craft room last night...and, well, I can see the table top now, and that's a start. ;)

I thought I might sit down tonight and get a couple of little projects done. Cliff's birthday is this week, and my scrappy friend Adrienne's is next week...so I need to get my butt in gear!

Since I can't post the cards for V-day or for either of the aforementioned birthdays (because they might come a-blogging!) here's a little perpetual date book I altered for my sister who married into a large family. The little date book itself was a "party favour" from the ladies at the Crop Away weekend I attended at the end of January (thanks, ladies!) and I couldn't wait to spruce it up for my little sis.

Here's the before:

And here's the after!

And here's my attempt at sophisticated staging ;)She is so sweet to always send out birthday cards, thank you cards, and other little bits of love, and I thought this might help her. (Here's hoping she won't check my blog before it gets to her!) She's living in a very rural area, and we don't get to see each other nearly as much as we'd like, so it's nice to send something. Plus, who doesn't like receiving real mail of the non-money-collecting variety? :)

Products, by the way, include Peeled Paint Distress Stickles, some old-skool K&Co letters, a Fancy Pants journalling card, and rub-ons by My Mind's Eye Laundry Line, Basic Grey Origins, and Daisy Bucket Big World.

And now, it's back to my craft room. I'm feeling inspired. The cleaning will have to wait. :)


  1. that's a neat Idea!!! and I really like the 'staging' looks good!!

  2. Love the new look to the tablet! Your commentary in your blog write up cracks me up! :)

  3. I have to agree!!! You are one funny girl T-dog!!! Yep, I said girl. I'm allowed to call you a girl, I'm gonna be old in 3 days!!!

  4. Ohh I love this! I really wish I was better as scrapbooking, I think I'll be getting some inspiration and motivation from you and your blog. Oh and BAZINGA! (We are huge Big Bang fans here too.) :)

    Blessings, Melissa
