About Me

My photo
Ok so Misfit Crafter, let me explain. To me being a maker, crafty person, artsy being has made me feel less like a so called Misfit. So really Misfit I see as someone who just goes with the flow of life. So I am a Misfit Crafter. Also I am a mom of two beautiful beings & a wife & so much more.

Toy Story Happy Birthday Sign

I made this great Happy Birthday Day sign for my son's Birthday Party Today!
I love the way it came out.

Woody is about 10 3/4 " tall

I used Toy Story Cartridge to make Woody...duh...lol.

And I used Beyond Birthdays to make the Happy Birthday!
And Printing Press to Make my son's name.

I just free hand cut the rectangle shape.

I am going to attach it to two skewers and put the sign on top of cupcakes.

Laugh Often Layout

Just wanted to share. I was challenged on Cricut Chirpin Mama's (Cafe Mom Group) to make a layout using orange and my first Cricut Cartridge (alphabetically).
So I used Beyond Birthdays for the Laugh Often Header.
I used clear overlays as frames for my Photo Mat and the Small Photo Mat/Journal box.
I also used stamps and chipboard stickers. And a few brads.

I so love the $1 section at Michaels

Check out my latest find ...they have the best stuff right now.

They had these great little boxes in different sizes, two look like they are about reading glasses size. The other would make a great trinket box. Or gift box. Then I found those great stamps. They about 4"x2" nice big ones and so cute. I got four out of the six designs I saw. And those little cute felt confetti they have. Perfect for layouts, cards, altered art and more. There is a close up pic below.


Gypsy for $50.00...it is so true! I am still in shock!

Seriously...I got mine at Michaels for $49.99. It took me calling ever store in Vegas...they are all out. Then finally calling a store in California by my brother to find one but I got mine.
Apparently Michaels is no longer carrying the Gypsy. So they clearanced them out to $49.99.
Not many stores have any left. But you never know you may luck out and get your hands on one for $49.99.
They never announced it from what I know. Not even some of the people working there knew about it.

LOL now I just have to get it from my brother!.

Good luck to anyone looking for one at this price.

My latest ATC Creations...anyone want to trade?

A little Christmas themed card with a pull out card that has my info.
I so love ATC's Artist Trading Cards,
So I was thinking how about we start trading them on here as well. So we have two options.
 One, anyone interested post yours up one at a time and anyone that wants it needs to post up one of their own. Then the person that first posted it can mail it to the person that posted next. Please put up an email address as well so we can contact each other for our addresses to send the cards to.
 Or the second option is that we do one big ATC swap. Where we sign up each month up to 10 people to start off and those 10 people make 10 ATC cards and send them to me and I will sort them and send them out to everyone. Please help me decide by voting on the right.
If you would like to know more about ATC's please check out this great site for more info and guidelines.

My first ATC card ever. I love this one it will be hard to give up but I will trade it.


Made with ribbon, glass, crackle medium, marker and lots of glue...lol.
