A fresh start.

I am back. And, I am ready to take on the world. Okay, maybe that is the caffeine talking. ;) Seriously though, it has been too long and I am sorry. If there is anyone out there in the blogosphere who is still checking on my blog, thank you. :) Today I am just going to post some projects that I have worked on in my absence from blogging. My new computer (which blew up after 3.5 weeks) is now repaired and seems to working fine. That said I hope to be online more. Sharing a laptop with a teenager and a toddler is not ideal for working. That and every other curveball life has thrown my way lately. Nothing earth shattering just enough to keep me from my happy crafting world. The kids are doing great and so are the adults. :) My plan is to do some crafting this evening and have some fresh projects to share tomorrow. Fingers crossed. I am also working on how to film my own tutorials so I can share more with you. If you are in the know on how to do this please feel free to chime in.
This cute little tea set is a restyled picture frame. The little box is full of individually wrapped teabags. The mug was plain white I just added a rub-on. You can find this project and instructions on Xyron.com The paper and embellishments are from Pink Paislee.

This cute coaster box was inspired by Becky Roberts at Inking Idaho. The paper and cute stamps are from Sassafrass Lass. Love the color combo of pink and chocolate.

I designed an entire birthday ensemble for Xyron. The paper and embellishments are from Imaginesce. Are they not the sweetest things ever? So sparkly and cute for a little girls party. I used my Xyron Design runner and Wishblade for these projects. You can find more details and instructions at Xyron.com
This is just a cute little decoration I made from some left over scraps and my Xyron Design Runner. The flowers are cut from My Mind's Eye paper, the tin is from Maya Road and the ribbon is from Papertrey.

This is a cute little leftover from valentine's day. I really had a good time coming up with this idea. The stampsand accessories are from stampin' up!
