4 boys 5yrs and under means one crazy busy momma at Christmas. Nurse baby, wrap a gift, change a diaper, fill a sippy cup, change another diaper, break up a fight, etc etc you get the picture. Obviously I totally spaced and didn't post the winner of the Kate's Kitchen cartridge.

Trying to declutter a little, so selling off this ctmh box of ribbon - don't worry I have way more than I need ;0) There's 65 rolls of ribbon, all but three still in the wrapper. The three without the wrapper don't look like I ever used them. I think a flat rate box would be the best way to ship to protect the ctmh box. $11 to ship and $50 for the box and ribbon.

A little Christmas cricut subway art

Hi all, as you can see, I'm not quite posting as frequently as I'd like to yet. The holidays with 4 boys 5 years and under get pretty hectic with a hubby busy at work. These last few days I've made 5 dozen Christmas sugar cookies and decorated them with my 5 and 3yr old (what a fun candy mess all over my dinner table!), made and decorated salt dough ornaments, pulled out the Christmas decorations and have begun to dec the tree and house (note, I said begun not finished), and attempted to create some fun crafty decs. Here's a little wall art I made with my cricut and the word collage cartridge. I'm hoping to add a few snowflakes here and there, but hey, we'll see if that actually happens before the holidays end.

Just a little subway art to brighten up my fire place. The background paper is from the Believe paper pack by Close to My Heart, and just their standard white daisy card stock for the letters. I really love this cartridge as with a little tweaking on your gypsy, you've got a whole bunch of titles for all your scrapbooking needs or shrink them down for cards.Lately I've really focused on trying to make do with what we have, that includes the crafting department. So, I came up with the idea of using on of my shelves from my Michaels mdf storage cubes. This is what I used to mount the subway art on. It's really amazing what you can find around your house and create into something beautiful. I challenge you to find something in your house this week and create something fun with it.
Hope you're all enjoying the Christmas season, embracing your loved ones and truly being thankful for what you have.
