Easter is coming.....

so are the bunnies and decorations.

Using my Cricut Explore Air machine I made these cute little Bunny Boxes for treats.  Sorry, the photo taken before they were finished.

Along with that I tried my hand at a few Cricut cards, loving the different things I can make, and all the designs just ready to cut and paste so to speak.

Here's what I came up with, oh and Happy Easter to all those whom celebrate.

I think I liked it better before all the glitter, then again, who doesn't like a little sparkle sometimes?

Enjoy, blessings and hugs, Lori m

Trying some new...

die cuts.

Greetings my friendly and talented bloggers.  I do hope you're enjoying the beautiful sunshine outside today?  We're still cold and snowy, however the sun was out so off I went for a few minutes of walking our baby boy. Gorgeous to feel some fresh air for a change.

Meanwhile, I received a gift card to Joann's and decided to get some myself some new die cuts.  Oh the fun for me, using my manual machines once again.

Sometimes, I just need to step back from all things electronic and enjoy the less stress, and try to let my mind just create.

Here's what I came up with....

Simple, yet detailed with the delequite cuts via Tim Holtz collections for Sizzix. This was new to me, Sizzix Framelits by Tim Holtz #662270. 

So for today, enjoy, blessings and hugs, Lori m

Staying ahead

as much as possible.  I put a few Mother's Day cards together the other day.

Here's one of my favorites and of course it's a colored Digi.  They just seem so perfect for time or I should say lack of time. 

At this point in my life, anything to make it fun and stress free is the way I want to roll.

This is from Imaginethatdigi's by Kris, love these images and I put my win to good use.

The file is called Watering Can Tulips...much prettier than my photo shows. 

At least you get a good idea of how nice this will look on any Mother's Day card.

Enjoy, blessings and hugs, Lori m

Rolling along with

another adorable card from one of the collections over at  Imaginethatdigi's by Kris!

The cuteness speaks for itself, the ease of print and cut, of my favorite things to do these days.  Short on time?  Pop on over and check out all the new and favorite digi's Kris creates.

This cutie was from the special collection Kris offered for free with a donation to the Ronald McDonald House.  Just love all the pretty and adorable things to be made, so many options, now all I need is the time.
I'm not sure if this is available for sale, you'd have to check with Kris on that. 

Enjoy, blessings and hugs, Lori m

Dropping in...

to say Good Morning to all.  I'm the worst blogger lately, my apologizes to everyone.  I keep trying to get back on the bandwagon and then fall right off.  I have some new photos to post, which I do hope will be this week.

I've been back to clutter cleaning and ridding  thousands of photos I will never use, to make room on my hard drive. Might I add..... a very tedious job indeed, and one I  hope to never do again.

Organizing is horrible to do and rewarding when it's finished. I never want to leave a mess for anyone to clean up including myself. As time marches on, there never seems to be enough time, so the perfect time is now.

Now you have it....the mysterious place I have been hiding out, nowhere and yet everywhere.

So,  this is where all my crafting energy has run off to and with luck soon....very soon....I will have my mojo back and very nicely organized surroundings.

Till then off I go, more clutter to sort and Easter Cards to make, can you here me whistle as my feet move in the same place lol?

Happy Sunday to all, be healthy, blessings and hugs, Lori m
