Wedding planning is officially over!!

Hi all-

I have been on a bit of a hiatus as I was recruited to be my brother's wedding planner with just about 6 weeks to plan the entire thing. The wedding was this past Saturday and was a huge hit. This is a picture of many of the crafty items I made including the cake, flowers, bouttoniers, etc...

Christening Gown

Hi all--

As promised, here is the picture of the Christening gown I made out of an antique wedding dress.

And the winner is...

Sorry for the delay in posting the winner, I didn't end up online much yesterday as I delivered the Christening gown I made (pictures to follow later).

Using random.org, and using all comments posted both here and on Fiskateers, the winner is...Jenny's Heart! Congratulations! Please send me a message here or through Fiskateers with your contact information so I can get your new punch in the mail to you!

Thank you to everyone for checking out my blog and for your comments!

Sharing the wealth giveaway.

Hi everyone! I have not been online too much lately-I've been helping a friend out at her daycare after she had a staffing emergency. I'm loving it, but I'm completely exhausted at the end of each day and missing my family, so my free time is spent primarily with them.

On one of my daycare days, my hubby sent me a note that I received a package from Fiskateers, so I was very excited! I had won a challenge drawing for National Scrapbooking Day and it arrived. I am thrilled with my winnings, but since I already had one of the items in the package and use it for almost EVERYTHING--the Apron Lace Border Punch--I want to share it with someone who doesn't have it so they can also enjoy how versatile it is.

If you are interested in winning this item, please leave me a comment here and/or over at Fiskateers--if you leave a comment in both places, you will be entered twice to win! I will draw a winner on Sunday June 5th.

In a slump...

What do you do when you're in a slump--either creatively or in life?

Happy National Scrapbook Day!!--Check out this giveaway!

One of my fellow Fiskateers had a link to an incredible giveaway celebrating NSD that I wanted to share here: http://www.typepad.com/services/trackback/6a00e553a7b4ae883401543227c932970c

It's an incredible collection that they are giving away--wish I could do something that big, but for now, I have to stick to my homemade goodies! Hope everyone is enjoying NSD!!
