A Challenge

I was just challenged by Leona  to post the 6th picture from my 6th folder on my blog.  This is a pic that I took of my sweet little baby boy.  Isn't he so cute?

A bunch of girlfriends and I went out for dinner tonight to celebrate my birthday and two of my friends birthdays. We were super CRAZY and had a great time. I thought I would share our cute pic with you all. I hope you are all having a wonderful Thursday!!!

Update on TPS (The Pink Stamper)

Hi Everyone!

I just wanted to do a little update on what is to come on TPS. I know I have been focusing a lot on my Cricut Series Videos. Those are a lot of fun and I know very useful to some people. There are some, however, who do not own a Cricut and are anxious for me to start a variety of videos and samples on my blog. I just want you all to know that I will be adding more variety soon. I am trying to do this all at my own pace and sometimes that means doing a lot in a week on my blog and sometimes it means they are spread out. I do this as time allows.

I hope you are all having a fantastic weekend! Don't forget to visit me over at and check out my weightloss blog. I can use all the support I can get!

Cricut Series #10 - Episode 81

Wow! This one was super hard to upload. I had to reedit it a million times. I accidently had it over 10 minutes so I had to delete some of it. I hope you enjoy. It is just a simple monogram card using Storybook.

Just a little cuteness......

Here is a little cute dude to give you something to look at while I'm figuring out my next video. I thought I would pull out my nice HDD Sony camcorder I bought last Spring. I filmed a great video for my Cricut Series but I can't get the darn thing to be recognized on my Mac. Looks like I am going to have to film the same one with my Flip.

Here is my sweet little cowboy. :)

Cricut Series #6- Portrait Button

Here is the latest video in my Cricut Series. I show how to use the Portrait button. Of course, there are other ways to use this button. Also, if you are using the Designer Series software then you probably will not ever need it.

New Years Goals

Of course I have to post about my goals for the new year. Everyone else is doing it so I have to do it, too. :) I do not use the word resolutions because I want my goals to be something I try to accomplish throughout the year not just at the beginning of every year. I'm just going to share my craft related goals as I'm sure you don't want to hear about my need to lose 25-30 pounds, or do you??? Okay, maybe I will add that in there. I eat when I create so that is really part of it all, right? Here we go.

*Send more of the cards I make. I used to be so good at sending out cards every week. I would usually make it a Sunday activity and just relax while I was writing friendly notes to people. Life just got too busy and I forgot why I started making cards in the first place. I need to get back to the beginning.

*Blog more, take more pictures, journal more about my life. This is a personal blog goal but I wanted to share it as it is a way for me to keep a better family history/journal. That is what scrapbooking is all about anyway.

*Talk on the phone less, work on genealogy & scrapbooking more.

*Eat less while I am in my Pink Loft and drink more water.

*Lose 20-30 pounds!! You can follow me over at The Pink Loser  if you want to root for me. I am in a Biggest Loser contest with one of my close friends. The stakes are high as the loser has to watch the other persons children overnight while the other couple gets to have a night kid-free. Ahhhhhhhh, just the thought of that!!

*Make my videos more professional. I have the equipment, I just need to try some new techniques.

*Learn how to use my new Nikon D90, that I got for Christmas. I LOVE holding my new camera. I feel so........ professional and like I know what I'm doing ....... when I don't!! I want to take on photography but I don't have a lot of time to do anything outside of the home. Therefore, I am going to watch a lot of online videos and read tutorials. I know I can do it!!!

*Do my best to be the ME I want to be. I cannot be you or her, I can only be ME!!

Cricut Series #5 - Fit to Length (Episode 76)

Here is the next video in my Cricut Series. I hope you enjoy it!

ETA: I have had some questions about if you didn't hit the "Fit to Length" button but just hit the size button if that would work. The answer is, no, it wouldn't work. When you select your size it is not going to be for the length of the item but, rather, for the width of the image. Did that make sense?? I hope it helps!
