Long Time......

Hi there!  I can't believe that I have not posted anything here in over a year,  My apologies.  Life has a way of getting in the way.  I have a new job, and I work from home.  This allows me to have more time to craft.  I have recently taken up sewing and just finished my first quilt.  I have also made 4 little purses.

I hope to be posting more often.....see you soon!

Scrapnkitty's Scraps on Etsy

Hi everyone! I just wanted to let you know that my Etsy shop is open and ready for business. However, I will not be adding anything new for a few weeks. I am moving and my crafting space is a complete disaster. I will be taking my time and setting my new studio up just the way I want it. If there is a specific item that you are looking for that is not in the shop for sale, please convo me on Etsy, and I will make sure it is on the list of things to do first when my room is complete!

Thanks for checking my store! Happy Shopping!

Two New Items added to Etsy!

I was a busy girl today and completed to more plaques. These two were a little more time consuming as there was A LOT of weeding to do with the vinyl. But I think the final outcome on these was worth it.

Beautiful Song:

Mojo Monday Cards

So my fellow crafter and blogger over at Celebrate Crafts introduced me to a new challenge blog called Mojo Monday. Each Monday a new card sketch is posted and challengers have one week to complete the sketch. This week's challenge was to create either a square or a round card using the sketch provided.

I decided to work both sketches. Here are my takes:

Round Card: Card was cut from the Wild Card Cricut Cartridge at 4.25in as well as the black out done in the red of the same image and size. Inner circles were cut from the George cartridge at 3, 2, and 1.5 inches. Papers used are from DCWV Stack 7. Stamps are Studio G and Martha Stewart. Flower unknown.
Square Card: Measures 4.25x4.25 inches. Paper used is from My Mind's Eye, Garden Vignettes. Stamps are Studio G and Close to My Heart. Flourish is a brad, maker unknown.
Thanks for peeking!

Remember you can find Scrapnkitty Scraps on Facebook, Twitter (@scrapnkitty) and Etsy!

Pink Stamper's Christmas Card Challenge

Hey there my friends. Just thought I would stop by and post a few Christmas Cards that I made for a recent challenge from The Pink Stamper.

The first card uses traditional Christmas colors of red, green, and gold. The base of the card is from DCWV, as for the rest of the card it was made from scraps . I have no idea of the manufacturers of the other products.
I love using more of the non-traditional colors for my holiday cards. Pinks, blues, purples and bright greens. In the next two cards I used the Mr. Frosty Imagine Cartridge.

In the first card I used some misc. items such as ribbon, glitter, and added some neat silver accents using Dazzles.

The second card was made with just the Cricut Imagine. I used the Mr. Frosty cart along with regular carts, Wild Card and Christmas.

Will be making plenty more in the week's to come. Please check out my Etsy store if you are interested in any of the above cards!

Admitting something's wrong

Please note that the following post has little, if anything to do with crafting, paper, or scrapping.

I am embarrassed to admit there is anything wrong. Maybe that is why I am typing it out here. Maybe no one but my 61 followers will ever read this. Maybe someone will once again come to my rescue. Not that I deserve it. But my son does. He has done nothing to deserve any of what me and my hubby of nine years are putting him through.

Sure, from the outside we look like a normal family. Hard working husband and father. Me a stay at home mom since I lost my job a year and a half ago. That should have been the first clue. But we failed to take the hint. Less money coming in, should mean less spending. NOPE. We are obviously not smart enough to take hints that BIG.

So we get money from Uncle Sam, and instead of putting it away, what do we do? We buy a brand new TV, a vacation to Disneyland, and a computer.....that we put on a brand new credit card promising to pay it off. HA! Life is grand..... who cares if bills get paid on time.

So for those mistakes we fall into a rut.....one bill is late and we rob Peter to pay Paul. Then rent is late....what's an $85 late fee? No worries we will get caught up next month. Again, HA! Another year goes by and rent was late probably 9 out of those 12 months.....$765 in late fees that should never have happened in the first place.

Uncle Sam comes round again.......this time it's another laptop and an iPad. Gotta have the latest and greatest. Screw the bills. Now we are behind on rent, the car, the cable, the utilities......ask for help. A kind soul grants us the help we need, and yet we still dig in deeper. Out to dinner 3-5 times a week.....we have to have the latest Blueray......and yes, I needed that damn Cricut Imagine. Like Hell!! More late fees.....more money out the window!

As I sit here and type this on my relatively new computer, I have an eviction notice and a notice to end tenancy from my landlord, my phones are currently shut off, and I had to borrow some money to refill a prescription. I sit here in the dark, sleepless, cause all I can think about right
now is what the HELL are we gonna do??? Who in their right mind would rent to us? I sure wouldn't.

Like I stated earlier....we did this to ourselves.....but I never thought of the consequences it would have on our child. At the end of next month, we may be out on our butts living in our van. What good will the new TV be then? The laptops? NONE.

We need to make a serious shift in our priorities and we need to do it quickly. No more spending. If we don't NEED it, we don't buy it.

School starts in just over a month, I need to buy clothes, supplies....heck because of the current residence situation, I am not even sure where my child will be attending school this coming fall.

So yes, I admit, I have a spending and budgeting problem. If you know someone that has been in a similar situation and made their way out please post a comment, I would love to hear some advice. No haters, please....your comments will be removed.
