Happy Monday!! How was your Monday? I was able to accomplish a lot today. My energy is finally back and my voice is almost there. I got a lot of housework done and then I was able to play in my craft room. I have a friend who asked if I could make a Mickey Mouse banner for the high chair and a big ONE. So if you know me you know that I am a little obessessed with Mickey Mouse. I have loved that mouse since I was a little girl. My dream was always to go to Disney World. I finally made it there in January 2000. My husband who was my boyfriend at the time and our best friends went down to Florida for a week. In front of Cinderella’s castle our last night there my now husband proposed to me. Talk about romantic, that was my dream since I was a little girl to be proposed to in front of Cinderella’s castle. So I am even more in love with that Mouse. So, of course, I said I would make Mickey Mouse Decorations.
I used my Cricut Explore to do all the hard work. I love that machine so much. I have made so many things with it. I also pulled out my 1st Disney Scrapbook. It was when I was really new to scrapbooking so it is pretty lame. I thought it was the best at the time.
Ha, I love looking at my older scrapbooks. It’s crazy to see how little I knew about paper crafting and it’s crazy to see how far I have come. I have learned so much over the years and mostly it was just going on youtube and following a few crafters over the years that I have learned a lot from. Here are some pictures of our first trip back with our boys. It was their the first trip and it was so much fun. As you grow older you really look forward to seeing your children’s joy when going places. I love seeing their first reactions to Walt Disney World. I love scrapbooking and I am so far behind.
I love being in my craftroom just able to get away in my own little world and craft. It’s my passion and I hope you guys all have found your passion in life. It makes a world of difference when you are able to do the things you love to do. I am there, at that spot. I truely love what I do and would not trade it for the world. As you all know I recently became a Stampin Up Demonstrator and It has been the best decision ever. I went in with just being a Hobby Demo but the more and more that I talk to people who say they cant craft and it’s not for them I decided that I needed to help people. I want them to be as excited about crafting as me. I also want them to start off right. I started with Stampin Up and loved it, then my Demonstrator quit and I had no one to buy from.My kids were just babies and I did not have the time to craft. I got out of it and said I will just buy my stuff at the craft stores. Yes you can buy your crafts their. I find that the stamps they sell are not as clear and the images do not stamp as well as stampin up stamps. The paper, inks, markers, ribbons do not match. The quality of all these products are just not there like they are with Stampin Up. You can try to get close colors but it will not cordinate like it will with Stampin Up. I am putting together a Card Club and it will start Febuary 1st. There will be no commitments just sign up in what ever months work for you. I will get all the details to you by Wednesday and I’m pretty excited about it. Ive been brainstorming alot over the past few months and hopefully you guys will like it. Happy Monday!!
