When I find something that I really like to do I usually become obsessed with it until the fun factor wears off lol

My current obsession is amigurumi. I am learning as much as I can as quickly as I can.

Here is a great book Amigurumi World: Seriously Cute Crochet to help you get started.

This is a great website to show you how to color change which I had no idea how to do! Color Change Crochet

Projects done in the last two days.  They stitch up quick!

my first attempt at amigurumi

Not bad. Considering I just started crocheting like a month ago. LOL

Throwback Thursday Challenge

Must use "WILD CARD" Cartridge OR any older cartridge you may own OR if you JUST started collecting your carts, just use what you have!
**** This week IS A "HOLIDAY" theme! Make a "CARD" w/your FAVORITE HOLIDAY!
****Must be an ORIGINAL project made especially for THIS challenge
****ONE entry Per Person Please.
 In case your haven't noticed my favorite holiday is HALLOWEEN!

I wanted to make a card that didn't scream Halloween but one that was just a scream! The wild card cart *quickly becoming a favorite* has a great monster card that I thought would work perfectly for this challenge. I didn't want the colors to scream Halloween either so went with a more "punk" rocker glam Halloween color scheme. Hope you enjoy.

Halloween In July and Gift Packaging

This month will feature tons of (well as much as I can finish) Halloween projects. Why should Christmas get all the attention?

I made a big batch of Monster Cookies tonight. My friend Jeff is a huge cookie monster so I decided to make a quick gift package for him.

 Frankie was cut at 3 inches from Paper Doll Dress Up.
The Glitter Ribbon is from Michaels Celebration Line.
The chain used around the ribbon is from October 31st. I believe it was cut at 3 inches.

Here is a link to the Monster Cookie Recipe I used. They were so delicious!

Thanks for stopping by.

The storm outside puts me right in the mood for Halloween!

Words can't even begin to describe how excited I am for these new releases!

Charming Layout

Bats are cut from October 31st.
Sentiment embossed with Cuttlebug Skeleton Scroll Folder.
Damask paper from Recollections at Michaels.

Frightfully Delightfull

Nothing reminds me more of Halloween than the smell of a burning candle in a pumpkin.

Really like how the flame looks after inking it.

Is it fall yet?

It may be 90 degrees out there but I still can't stop thinking of cool, crisp days that fall always brings. It is my favorite season! Seriously, who can resist the warm doughnuts on the pumpkin farm with a big cup of fresh apple cider to wash it down? However, fall holds a special place in my heart because of HALLOWEEN!!!

Thanks to the folks at Provo Craft Halloween came in July this year with their new cricut release October 31st!!

 This is one of my favorite cartridge releases. If only it were a full content cartridge!! It would be better than a bowl full of snickers on Halloween night!

Here are some scrapbook layouts I've made recently. I am still pretty new to all this stuff but I gave it my best shot. Hope you enjoy.

House Card

A friend of mine is moving soon and I had to think of a quick card to make her before her going away party last night. Luckily, my order from Custom Crops  came that day so I was able to make her this fun card.

Custom Crops had a great price for the cartridge during their sale two weeks ago and it was only $19.99. I have been wanting this cart for along time but have been putting it off so I am glad I held off for such a great price.
