thanks a latte trio

Hey all!! Sorry I've been so absent the past few months... believe it or not, I STILL haven't unpacked the majority of boxes from my crafting space... such as all my cardstock, half my patterned paper, my punches, most of my stamps... you know, the important parts ;)

Let's not even get into how hard it is to find crafting time when you have a needy 9 month old crawling around!! I love little E, but I spend most of my time just sitting on the floor or couch with her. Once I get the rest of my crafty goodies unpacked, I should be good... my craft space in our new shoebox apartment, is one wall of the living room, so I can craft and still be with her :) I actually ordered some crafting supplies so I could do (for the first time!!) a December Daily album! I'll share bits of that soon ;)

Anyhoo, thanks for sticking with me! So onto the CARDS!! After Thanksgiving (when much of my family finally met little E!), I had to whip up some thank-you cards for baby gifts! I apologize for the lousy photos, but I figured I'd share anyways :) It's made with Verve stamps and a few gems to jazz things up! I had a few pieces of cardstock laying around, and used my sewing cutting board to cut everything- along with pinking shears on the bottom of the one card! The circle was a paper bit in my "scrap pile" that I had made for another card but never used, and the one corner I just rounded by hand. Tough times, but ya gotta make do when you're without all your tools, hehe ;) Enjoy, and hopefully I'll be back crafting regularly soon- gotta get to the storage unit to get the rest of my crafting boxes!! I'm also tackling Project Life this year! Good times to come :)

PS. Playing along over at Pumpkin Spice's "tea/coffee" challenge- my blogging buddy, June, invited me over to play!! And I apologize for the less than stellar photos- I don't have a photo lighting box or anything set up since, again, much of my crafting stuff is still packed up!


  1. Shauna I am so glad to see you back in the blog world. Enjoy your sweet baby...the grow up so fast! I am happy your family got to meet her. I plan to try to start a project life scrapbook. I am hoping my favorite online store will have them for sale in the future (Shop Pumpkin Spice.) And speaking of Shop Pumpkin Spice, I hope you will link this post up to the current Coffee/Cocoa/Tea challenge!
