A little progress

Happy Monday, all. Hope you had a great weekend. Mine was very busy. Just not crafty busy.

Gabe decided to play baseball after telling us for 2 weeks he did not want to play this year.  So Saturday morning was the last time to sigh up. So I was at the ball park at 9am doing the paper work and paying.

When I got back home we went to Academy for cleats. We bought cleats, a new fielders glove, batting gloves and new sneaks for school. Then home we went.

We had to get ready for Cade's (11 yr. old gs) basketball game. They won! Then home again.

Next we got ready for church at 4pm. Finally got home at 5 to stay. No one felt very well.

Then Sunday  morning comes. It's nice to laze around drinking coffee and reading emails. (hubby played golf) A nice day. Hubby gets home about noon. Around 1pm we hear this horrible racket. It's my washing machine. I think it committed suicide.
My son had to buy one last weekend so we went to get one like his and there were none Would have to wait till Thursday to get one in. I don't know about you but I wash every day and no way could I wait for Thursday. So they found one in Sulphur, Louisiana (about an hour away). Hubby is on his way back with new machine. I made this card while he was gone. (bet you wondered where I was going with all this) lol

Anyway I had the little skates already made and I couldn't throw them away, could I? So I made the card.



So thanks for stopping by to see the card that I made for no reason.
Hope this is the beginning of a wonderful week.
Hugs and God bless. Stephanie

Happy birthday Auntie

God morning!

Short post today. I have a card to show you for my aunt. Her birthday is just a couple of days away. It is another snowflake card. (I think it's the last one) ha

I'm kind of stuck. I tell myself I'm going to make something and then nothing happens. I want to do 3d but end up doing nothing. I need to get focused. Plus my hands hurt a lot less when I'm crafting.(You think that could all be in my head?) lol

Anyway here's the card:


It really is prettier in person. The center is a snowflake button.

Thanks for the visit.

Hugs and God bless. Stephanie

Another Monday

Happy Monday, everyone. I don't know about you but getting back into the school routine is so hard for me.

Our weekend was cold and wet. It rained all day Sunday and not just little showers. We just stayed in.

Anyway the reason for this post. My besties birthday was yesterday.  Don't tell anyone but she turned 65. I think that is unbelievable In 6 months I will be 65, also. How did we get here?

So here's her card. I fixed her a treat bag with some goodies but didn't photograph it.


The cold weather seems to be getting to me. I feel a need to put snowflakes on everything.
Thanks for stopping by. Hugs and God bless. Stephanie

More birthdays

Good evening. I hope your Friday was good. Here it was rainy, cold and nasty. 

Since I haven't really made much of anything, I'll just have to show you some more birthday cards.




It's been so cold a lot of my cards have snowflakes on them.

Thanks for stopping by.

Day 6 of the new year

Hi, all. It's almost 3 pm here. I haven't made much since Christmas.

When we went to our third celebration in Houston we were all exposed to the flu. New years eve Gabe and I were in the Drs. office. ''Luckily  - no flu - just sinus infections. Gabe was able to go back to school yesterday, he's fine. I'm having a harder getting over it. Age I guess. lol I feel pretty good for about 3 or 4 hours then not so much.

Anyway I tell you this because all I've been able to do is make birthday cards.

So that's what I have to show.



These were made from an SVGCuts file.
I loved the bicycle.
Thanks for the visit.
Hugs and God bless. Stephanie

Good morning and Happy New Year!

I just wanted to wish all my wonderful bloggy family a very happy and healthy new year. (lets not forget crafty) lol

You always inspire me and make me smile. I love visiting you and I love your comments.
I appreciate you all so much.

Here's to a new year of inspiration and delicious craftiness!



I've been waiting all year to make this ice skate. I think I'll name this Southeast Texas snow. Paper snow is all we can count on. lol

I love and appreciate you all.

Getting New Yeary around here

Happy Tuesday, everyone. Just two more days left for this year. I can't wrap my head around this. It happened so quick.

I'm not making a lot specifically for New Years but I hope to make a bit for winter. Lots of snowflakes. (since we don't get much of that here in southeast Texas)

Anyway Gabe said I needed a" New Yeary" banner to put up the day after Christmas and I had it ready.

Take a look:





It's simple but he liked it.

Thanks for the visit.
Hugs and God bless. Stephanie

Happy day after!

Well, how did it go? Did you get everything done before Santa came? I don't know about you but I'm glad for today. I'm relaxing! (maybe I'll get the 3d champagne bottle done for New Years.)

I have a feeling we will all need a nap today. lol

Gabriel was so excited he could barely go to sleep Christmas Eve. I got up at 2 Christmas morning and went to look at the temp setting (I was cold). Gabe met me in the hall and exclaimed, "I'm up!"  I told him what time it was and he had to go back to sleep. lol

Then we had to "wake" him up around 7.


The rest of the local family came about 10:30. (2 sons, 1 daughter-in-law, and 2 grandsons) I had everything cooked. We visited, opened presents, the 4 of them got new phones. Alec, 14, helped transfer info and set the phones up.  Alec is the one we all call for tech how-to. How do kids know this stuff?

Anyway, it was a wonderful day. Lots of leftovers which I'm freezing for New Years.

OK, so, the purpose of this post, and the next couple of posts is to finish showing Christmas stuff.  I know I should be done with that by now but time got away from me.

Here goes:









Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you have a relaxing one.

Hugs and God bless. Stephanie

Quick post

I know it's Christmas Eve and everyone is busy but I have a very short post for you.

I bet you thought I forgot about my Christmas bats. Well, I put them on my little tree.


This is what Gabriel had to say - You put bats on the tree! That's just a little weird, Mimi. Then he never mentioned it again.
So it didn't really phase him.

However, he walked in the other and went up to my banner. He pointed to it and told me that it had to be removed the day after Christmas. So I better get busy and make a New Yeary one.

So I hope you're all having a wonderful Christmas Eve.
Many blessings and be safe.

Hugs and God bless. Stephanie

Brynn's birthday

Good evening on this Sunday. I meant to post this this morning, but I forgot.

I did get some crafting done.

My wonderful niece was born on Dec. 21st. (a few years ago) lol So I did not want her card to have anything to do with Christmas.  This one is just about her day.
Here is the card I made for my niece.



I know this was very short but I am very sleepy.
Thanks for stopping by.
