Organization or addiction, plus a much needed change…

So my husband has decided that I am addicted to making cards.  Right now our daughters and him are watching a movie and I am sitting at my craft table NOT watching the movie.  He rented some movie that a friend said was really good and I’m just not in the mood.  Granted lately, I will admit, I have been spending a great deal of time at the crafting table. In my defense I just organized the closet/craft table area in December and now I can craft to my heart’s content without having to drag all the tubs/bins/boxes out of the hall closet, use the counter/table where we eat as my surface, and them pack everything back up to put it back in the closet.  I almost never did anything because it was such a hassle.

What I love is that I can start a project get up and go to bed, cook a meal, run an errand, watch t.v., or do anything and I DON’T HAVE TO CLEAN UP A SINGLE THING!!!!! So am I addicted…maybe…but I say I am making up for lost time 🙂

So now let me show you what I have been up to with my new-found addiction/hobby:

Sent this one to my little brother to tell him how proud of him I am that he will be graduating from college in just a few short weeks.

Trip to Vegas Card

I am traveling to Vegas to meet up with a group of friends from all over the U.S. Sent them all cards like this with notes about how excited I am for our upcoming girls vacay…

I made another card and sent to a friend that lives far away, but I forgot to take a photo before I sealed it in it’s envelope…sorry. 😦 It too had a U.S. cutout, but it had hearts and a little tiny airplane with what was supposed to look like sky-writing behind it that said “thinking of you.”   Really cute! My friend will love it.

As for the list of supplies—– paper, glue, time and energy….lol. I am too lazy to list everything. If you really must know about one detail or another leave me a comment and I will gladly share the goods.

What else have I been up to you ask, well, I was doing some “pinning” the other day on Pinterest and came across a blog written by a woman named Rachel. Her blog is http://www.maybematilda.com and I was inspired to cut my hair.  I had long hair, not super model long, but my ponytail was probably a good 6 – 8 inches long (I had some layering).  I had been toying around with the idea of a major haircut for a while, but always chickened out.  Monday I took my girls out for breakfast…I LOVE being on SPRING BREAK…and was talking to my oldest, Alex, about the blog and the authors experiences with getting a pixie cut then trying to grow it out. Alex told me to stop being a weenie and go get it cut…”Uh, it’s only hair mom,” she said with an exaggerated exhale (i just love teenagers. Don’t you?)  So before I could weenie out I called and made an appointment.  At said appointment time I explained what I wanted, showed pictures and then closed my eyes (and crossed my fingers…lol).
