I got out with my flash and my macro lens today and took a few shots in the front garden,which is overrun with aphids (as you can see.. yuck!!) So I hope you enjoy them.. I love the advantage the flash gives in getting a sharp macro, although I prefer natural light, sometimes you need to compromise!

On Board 5x5 Art Journal

I was playing with some new SU stuff from the Spring Mini last week. I used the 5x5 art journal to make this Birthday book with the Office Accoutrements set, coordinating paper, and accents & elements kit. The tabs (with the new round tab punch) are labeled with the months. I have some pages left over, and haven't decided what to do with them yet. Either Birthday Gift Ideas, or a Notes tab, or something! We'll see!

I've been busy!

I know, I haven't updated my blog in a long time! Immediately after returning from Italy, I had to study for a statistics midterm which HOPEFULLY I passed. I wont know for a few weeks. Work has been busy, and well, life just gets away from me. I haven't had a chance to stamp since my last card I uploaded. So I decided tonight I was going to sit down and get creative.

I made a spring mini sets; Bunny Hugs. I also couple of easter cards with one of the new altered a clock and some canvases out of Basic Grey Blush paper. I saw the canvases in a magazine, I think it might have been Scrapbooks, etc. and thought it was a cute idea. The craft store had these mini canvases, so I bought a few to try it out on. I think it came out really cute and is a great crafty add to decorate my walls with. Plus you can never have too much BG!!

So I'm off for now, I'm not sure when I'll get a chance to post again. I've got to prepare for stamp club next weekend. When I finish getting everything prepared I'll post the projects for this month!

It's an Animal!

Sorry it's been so long since I've updated my blog! I've been busy with school, work, and my trip to Italy last weekend. It's put me really far behind! I'll post pics of my Italy trip later, I still have to process them. I'm not sure when I'll get a chance to do that, but I'll get to it, I promise!

I got to pick up my new toy on Friday, a Dyson Animal! Wow does this thing have some suction power! I'm totally pleased with the purchase! I vacuumed the whole house (except the stairs), and when Drew came home, he was just as excited. He wanted to vacuum the stairs, so I let him, and captured a picture while he was at it. He went from the stairs to the whole downstairs (again), I couldn't believe how much stuff came off the floor even though I had just done it yesterday. Yowsa! After he did the floor, he started with the couch, inside and out.. he was on a roll! I decided I had to scrap the event. Since I've had scrappers block for so long I was amazed that I was able to create something in just about half an hour! So here's my layout of my new Dyson, and Drew, giving it a workout on the stairs!
