Valentines Book Wreath

I made this wreath the other day during Easton's nap,  that's how quick you can make one too....
 I'm sure that you don't need a tut on it, but just in case you ya go...........

1. Cut out a circle out of cardboard, I used a cereal box

 2. get your book an rip out a bunch of pages and cut them down to 5x5, make a cone and staple the bottom together
 3. start gluing them to the cardboard circle, I used a glue gun
 4. keep gluing
5. keep gluing
 here is what it will look like when you have glued them all on
and of course you need something in the middle to make it look valentinezy, I cut out a scallop 4" circle with my cricut and some hearts then made a little garland with the hearts.

 I used two sided tape to attach the scallop circle, so that way I can change it out for different Holidays!
Thanks for looking!!

I'm not sure if that is even a word, but its going to be my word... 
How about I show you a scrapbook page every Thursday and we will
call it, Scrap-tastic-Thursday.
Its really hard for me to get a good picture of my scrapbook pages. 
I haven't found that perfect spot in my house to take them.  So I'm giving you what I got...
These pictures where taken about a week before she turned two. (so she's almost two)
I had ordered some pictures for her party from persnickety prints, and can I just say that they are awesome!!!  After I had placed my order online, they actually picked up the phone and called to tell me that one of my pictures that I wanted in a certain size was not going to work.....who does that.... well, they do.  So the awesome man on the phone told me that he would send me a free 12x12 since it was not going to work in the other size that I wanted.  Plus their prices are incredible.   You really need to check them out.
Tell them that Amber sent you, you wont get a discount or anything for free.  I just wanted to say that.

I love this girl

I haven't scrapbooked since probably before Halloween.  I go thru spurts where I either like to scrapbook, sew, make something with paper other than a scrapbook page or do nothing.  I started working on this page and it took me about a week to finish it.  I only would sit down and work on it for about 5 min and then get bored and walk away.

 I love this girl

Remember my Halloween frame here, well v-day is approaching so I pulled out my frame and whipped something up...

I used my cricut to cut the "love" out
it needed something else so I made a tiny banner
I started to get my valentines stuff out and I want to make some sort of wreath so soon as I see one that some one else has made I'm all over it LOL!!
 Show me what you got. (if you don't mind)

craft room

I love my craft room, it may not be the best of the best, but at least I can leave my stuff out and I don't need to clean it up every time I pull something out.  In our first house I scrapbooked out of a box.  I had all me stuff in one container and every time I pulled it out on to the kitchen table, it would either stay there for days or I would have to clean it up that same day.  Or I would sit on my floor in front of the TV and scrap on the floor.....and I would have all day to do it.  A lot has changed....two kids later.... I only come down during nap time or when they are in bed.....but this is what I get to come down to... and I love it!!
  Lillie loves it too! and my Ipod.
And yes, I'm only showing you the one side of my craft room.  The other side might be a little messy, we all know that no ones likes to show off there messy craft room, but yet we all love it and we know where every thing is.  I wont be afraid and I will take some picture's and show you......
hold please.......

OK, I did it.  I took pictures of the other side...the messy side of my craft room, and I promise you, I picked nothing up.
 Here's my dresser that I re-painted and shoved in the closet, and now I shove everything on top of it.
Look, I'm posting on blog in the picture, he-he-he!
a little table for Lillie, she likes to come down & craft with me when Easton is napping
So here it is ladies...... Don't be a shamed of your messy crap room, I mean Craft room.
Happy Crafting!!
