Crafting Madness

I woke up and told the LORD, "Good Morning!"  What a wonderful blessing to be able to that. Today was a full day of work, with the children and other important stuff.  But for some reason I was in the mood to craft and sometimes crafting for me is like music that calms the savage beast. 

Well all that said, I made some really neat stuff ( I think).  Melissa Phillips with Lilybean Paperie is one of my all time faves.  I just love her colors and designs, they are so busy and they are so ME.  She made a lovely tag hanging that I just needed to try and so here is my rendition...  You can check hers out at http://lilybeanpaperie.typepad.com/

Well, I guess I was getting really involved and I had a couple of items that I had wanted to work on for sometime and now felt pretty good, so I kept on going.  I had this 12' ginormous clothes pin that I thought would be pretty neat to decorate and I also had a cutesy bird and cage die cut by Tim Holtz that Jennifer with Scrapbook 911 cut out for me.  I think they are the only store in town that has this die cute and a couple of other really cute ones.  Anyway I knew I would be able to do something with that as well.  I used paper that I got from Michael's by Making Memories called Passport.  So think about it, bird cage with bird,  giant clothespin and super fun paper...hm mm...Sounds like a winner to me.  Here's what I came up with.

Lastly I made a card.  I remember when I could crank out about 10 cards in one setting, but lately I have been so busy I haven't had much time, but I made a deal with myself that each time I made a project I would also include a well thought out card and here is my card for today.I used a toile flower and lace by Prima and printed card stock by The Girls Paperie called  Paper Girl and rub on by Fancy Pants called Simplicity.
