We the first hint would be...STOP buying them (lol)...but that just isn't realistic. Who can pass up these lil gems at only $1.00?A few days ago I came across the BEST idea for storing them, it wasn't my idea, but something I read on my favorite website and message board, 2peas in a bucket! I wish I could remember who posted it...I am still hunting thru threads, but if you know leave me a comment so I can give that AWESOME gal proper credit! Baseball Card protective pages...they have 9 pockets per page and fit the $1.00 sets perfectly~
I bought my pages of ebay...as many of you who know me IRL know...Ebay is my go to for everything but groceries! My friend Katy told me her mom buys the pages locally at the major office supply stores.

I've been playing around with some felt ideas for an upcoming "cupcake themed crop" for National Scrapbook Day. So far these are my 2 prototypes..lol Not sure if I will use them as pin cushions or a little wall hanging decoration.
Apr 14, 2009
...the theme for the crop is "Party like a rock star", so naturally the cake needed to match.
Katy is an awesome gal! She is a HUGE Bon Jovi fan. So, it is only fitting we celebrate her day in style. She is heading out soon actually to see her beloved BJ in Vega (lucky girl)!

Tonight I was attempting to straighten my "tub-o-ribbon" from when I decided it would be better to take it all off the rolls (someone bad led me down that path). Once the rolls were gone, there was NEVER another good way to store them. TRUST ME...I've tried it all!I have since, kept all my new ribbon on the rolls, but in the meantime, I was left with a disaster to deal with. Tonight I came up with something I THINK I can "live with" until it is gone!
...And if you happen to see me in the ribbon isles of your local craft store,
please tell me to GO HOME!

I recently got a couple cupcake towers at the Dollar General of all places. They were even on clearance for $6.00 each. They are cute, but just plain white..so I added some stones to one to fancy it up a bit.I got them for a couple reasons...#1 we are hosting a cupcake themed crop for National Scrapbook Day May 1-2, so we needed more towers to hold the cupcake yummies! #2 I can never have too much cupcake stuff.
I've been making a few paper cupcakes too...to eventually fill the cupcake towers in my scrap room..since real cupcakes won't work!

In an effort to get them out of the bedroom and into the craft room, I am unmounting them from their wood blocks and organizing them in clear CD Rom cases. So far - So good! I'm loving how much space it saves and I've already unmounted 24sets...and ran out of CD cases!
post an "AFTER" photo within the next few days showing the complete process!!!

I love my hubby, but boy does it change our schedules for him to be home. Mainly because he works night and when he is home still sleep weird hours and want to play with the kids all hours of the night! Of course I am the lone "bad guy" telling everyone this is not acceptable...lol!
I haven't completed or even started a creative project since he's been home...but I have been thinking about them...lol...I even drew a couple idea for a new tattoo today. He's always up for running out to get some new ink.
Hopefully I will complete something worthwhile this week!

I'm also posting the pendant I made earlier this week for the Pendant swap I'm in...only had to make 15 of those, they turned out ok I think and I made a few extra for me and the girls!
