Picture Train

This is one of my favorites so far. I started out just trying to make something cute for my nephews pics


I loved it so much that I did one for Jilly


and then made on of all my children for a Grandparent birthday gift


I plan on making a few more for a Chinese auction in May. What fun I'm having! God is good!

Procrastinating can be a good thing!

I am by nature the best procrastinator! I let things go until I am nearing the deadline, then I work frantically to get done what I started. Not to worry though. I always get er done on time, most of the time with no minutes left to spare, but done none the less.

Well,just recently I put together a baby book for Dan and Nicole for their bundle of joy.I worked on it here and there, trying to not put it off until the last minute. A few days before her due date, I finished it completely(pics are in previous post). I finished on time, and actually waited for over a week because the sweet little baby was not willing to arrive on time. I just loved the way it looked all decked out in blue and it even had the babys name on the cover - Tyler -...then the day finally came for the baby to be born. And when the baby arrived, it had a surprise of its own...Tyler was Amelia!We quickly removed Tyler, replaced it with Amelia and added a flower!

So, I guess my point of this is because of my impatience, I left my normal routine of waiting till the last min., and now Amelia has a funny story to tell about her Aunt Angie and her baby boy baby book:o)

What a beautiful baby she is. God is awesome!

Baby hopefully on the way:o)

Well, my sis-in-law was due on the 11th, and I heard they may be inducing today. Crossing my fingers for this. I can't imagine being 11 days past due. I am going crazy and it isn't even me!! I made a book from her baby shower that I am dieing to give to her. It is made up of well wishes and some advice from all of the women who were at the shower. I just love how it turned out:o)



Now, I just hope Danny is right and it is a boy!!

Happy St. Patrick's Day:o)

Happy St. Patrick's Day! I cannot believe that it is in the 50's and sunny. What happened to our annual predictable Paddy's Day snow storm?! don't get me wrong...I'm not complaining, but it certainly is a pleasant surprise.

This morning I woke up and went right out to my cricut to make a lephracan with my Paper Dolls dress up cartridge. Once I got going though, I ended up making a card to hold a flower MArisa wanted to give her teacher. I love it when that happens. I start out just playing and the next thing you know I have a full blown project in my hands. Here is my creation for this holiday. I am pleased with how it turned out.


I love the crafting world. I am a pleaser by nature, so it is so fun for me to be able to make people smile with my creations. I feel truly blessed that the Lord has given me this love, and the opportunity to reach out to others through this. I am praying that one day, he will be able to use me with the gifts he has given me.

Let everything I do be done in love (true love to God and ,an as inspired by God's love for me) -1 Corinthians 16:14
