Thank you card scraplifted from Cricut msg board

I loved this design so much- that I wanted to try it on my own. I did a few things a little different- but for the most part- it's very similar.
I used everything from the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge. I am very pleased with it.

I got 3 done instead of two! YAY!

Well- as I promised I said I would show you two projects I was finishing, and I decided to do a third one while I was down there. When the kiddo is playing well- it's time to take full advantage! So- there are two of them for the daring cardmakers blogs. One is last weeks dare to include a fish or a frog into your card. This weeks challenge is to incorporate circles into your card. I think I will be doing a few of these! I also did an anniversary card. I made all of these with my cricut expression. The two cartridges I used were Planin Schoolbook and Potpourri Basket. It's fun! I have to say- its nice to have my craft stuff set up in a specific area where I don't have to constantly set up and take down.

Anxious to get moving!

Well- I just wanna post a bit before I head to my craft room. I had dreamed about all the beautiful stuff I want to create and had to share with my readers. I also just looked at the daring cardmakers dare for the week- and it's circles! I'm daring myself to do two of them. I will first finish the ones I promised to post today. Happy Friday to all!
I need to use the wet/dry vac to clean up the leakage in the basement from the aweful rainfall we had last night. Its all icy on the roads now. Good thing I'll be cooped up in my craft room!

See you all soon with two of my finished projects!

2 projects started... just need to finish...

Well- I was able to play with my E today. I started an Anniversary card, and a fish card for the Daring Cardmakers blog. I should have them done tomorrow... I am thinking of a good saying for the fish card... I think something along the lines of... Gone fishing? Haven't heard from you in a while. Miss you.
Any ideas?
Hopefully tomorrow I can post pics.

PS- sorry this blog was so late today... I was whisked off of my feet yesterday by my wonderful husband who decided to take me on a overnite getaway to beautiful Green Bay. It was great. I'm not denying it!

Craft room up! Still needs fine tuning...

Well- here are some pictures of the room from beginning to almost the end. I have some fine tuning to do yet- especially when I start working on stuff down there. Its nothing fancy- but it's the space I need to get the job done! I posted the pictures backwards- so the one on the bottom is the beginning, and the one on the top is the end. Sorry for the confusion! Still understanding this blog stuff yet!

To Organize or not to Organize....

Day 1 of my blog is down- and I know I had at least one reader. I guess that's an ok start! :) My goal this week is to get all of my scrapbooking stuff down into the basement- and set up nicely. I hope my favorite helper comes over today to help me with that. It's always more fun to have company over helping with something they enjoy doing too. As you can see- I have added 1 blog that I am following- her work is AMAZING! I hope to be as good as her! Her workspace is amazing too. If you can- check her out! Her blog name is Paper Trail.
I would like to go to Michaels today to get myself some of the beautiful organization techniques that they suggest... Let's hope I can at least do that! It's alot to juggle with a 13 month old at home and bringing a 6 year old to school!

First Day on- bear with me!

Hello all! Thank you for visiting my blog! I decided to get into this because I love crafting and blogging... What a perfect way to combine the two! I will definately be revamping as soon as I learn a little more about all of this! I've always wanted to do this- but never found out how.

First- I should introduce myself.

My name is Jen Young. I live in Plymouth, WI. I just recently got into craft shows because I love scrapbooking, card making and other paper crafts. I have two beautiful children and another on the way. Cassie is going to be 7 in March of 2009, and Alex just turned 1 year in January 2009. My husband Adam is very supportive of my crafts, and thinks I should charge each item on how long it takes me to make. Maybe someday- but first I need some followers! :)

I have always wanted to have a scrapbooking get together at my house. I'm always afraid it may not turn how I want it to. I guess I can't knock it til I try it.

Well- if anyone has any questions or comments- leave a comment and I will do my best to answer! Thanks for the support!

PS- I am going to try to get a guestbook started... If you see one- please sign it! Even if you are just passing by! That way I know whether or not this blog is worth my time- or even yours! Thank You!
