wowwee, wow, wow!!!!

Can you believe it? I actually uploaded two more cards to splitcoast today. In my book that's impressive. There was a time when that was no big deal, but those days are gone. And while I love crafting and cards, I love my baby more so it's been well worth it. Anyway, I made these cards a while before Valentine's day and yet they still were sent late. Oh, well. Hopefully their beauty made up for it.

That one I sent to my mother. She frames some of my cards and keeps others, never throwing them away. Therefore, I will always send her my best. The next one I sent to my mother-in-law.

Isn't it amazing how you can have a similar foundation and yet a few different accessories and you have a completely different feel. To see a recipe for these cards click here,

Will it ever end??????????????????????

She's crying. I can't go to her, make it all better. I wish I could, but would that really help her? I know she can do it, unless she just pooped her diaper. In which case no amount of positive thinking will help, she really does need me. She's teething poor girl. That makes it so much harder.

This evening I left her with a babysitter for almost an hour and a half. That's about all I could stand. Gonna have to work on that, huh.

I think she finally stopped crying, I'm so proud of her. She's been sleeping through the night but it hasn't been easy to learn for any of us. And as pathetic as it sounds I miss her in the night. Especially when I can't sleep, like right now. It's almost 3 am. Oh well, time to try again, and ... make sure that diaper isn't poopy, please no anything but that.

Two for One

So life gets busy right?... And there's never enough time to create, NEVER! Usually you can find some time but rarely is there enough of it. So here is time saving tip #1 Make two cards at the same time. It takes very little extra time and now you have two cards, one for now and one for later. You can make them exactly the same or, you can switch things up a bit. But don't get to carried away with the latter, after all, your trying to save time. The following is one such example:

It is next to impossible for me to do the same card more than once. For me variety is definitely the spice of life! So if you haven't already mastered this tip. give it a try. And let me know how it works for you!
