Poor Baby

Well my little baby has been sick for three weeks now! We had to take her to the Doctor again on Tuesday and she still has a little ear infection and low fever. It is getting much better though. I just feel so sorry for her, she hasn't left my site and we've spent the whole week catering to her every need. I always get so dragged dowm when my kids are sick, it's the worste feeling to see them that way. Anyway so that's why I haven't done much lately with new kits etc. Hopefully next week will be much better. Hope everyone had a wonderful thnaksgiving!!

Vintage Addiction Kit
















Hi everyone!










So we've been getting a lot of requests to make one huge vintage kit, so in honor of Thanksgiving we're made a monsterous kit called Vintage Addiction. It comes with so many goodies including 3 Vintage paper collection. 5 yards of trim and lace from Webster's Pages, and much more! The best part is that if you purchase this kit between now and Friday you'll get an additional vintage paper collection for free!










Everyone a joyous Thanksgiving!

Just asking for some fun!

Ok, tonight I am going to finish up some kits, then I'm going to work on some new videos for Bluemoon. I hope I have enough time to do both. I've been itching to do some videos, so hopefully I will get to pop atleast three out tonight! Also the website has been re-done again lol! It's still in works, but hopefully this will be the last time! I'm always changing my mind so it's highly unlikely that it is.

Also I think my husband and I have decided to get a dog, so if you are in central California and know where we can find a pure bred lab, doberman pincher, or german shepard, please let me know! I'm excited about getting a dog because Blake really loves animals, and I think it's a good idea for protection. I used to have a doberman pincher growing up and he was the sweetest dog ever! Anyway I better get going on those kits and videos. Have a great week everyone!

Wednesday, October 7, 2009

Updates

Hello everyone! I'm working on getting some new videos up, hopefully I will get to do some tonight for Bluemoon. I have to catch up on some bluemoon blogs and then I will back in the swing of things. My wrists are feeling much better, I haven't had the nerve condcution test yet because it's really hard to get an appointment. Anyway thank you all for the warm wishes! Hopefully I will post again tonight with pics or a video of a project I am working on. Have a wonderful week everyone!

New Metal Vintage Fleurs




Ok here is a peek at the new Metal Vintage Fleurs now posted on the website here: http://apieceofcraft.com/Kitshop.html

There are many more to see!





I'm back!

Hi everyone! Sorry I haven't been on in awhile, I had family down from Texas and we went on a little vacation. I had such a great time, and mine and my hubby's birthday was just amazing. Thank you all for the oh so sweet birthday wishes! So Hopefully this week I will get to work on some more videos as well as putting some new kits up on the website! I have a bunch of very cute stuff to share and just about all the kits on the site are sold out so I know I need to get them up.

One of the new kits is a Prima kit and when you see it I know you'll have to have it! It's totally customizable and you'll get what I mean when you see it! The other is another vintage kit and it comes with a mini album that is to die for! I'm also going to introduce some new embellishments that you will only see at my store, and I can't wait till you see them! I'll make sure to post more when they go up!

As far as an update on my wrists, can you believe I sprained one on vacation lol. I've never had a sprained wrist, it's so painful, and I can't help but laugh because what are the odds right? Ha ha it's much better now, thank goodness.

Oh one last thing, the Graphic 45 Chaby Chic kit is coming back but it's on back order, I'm hoping it will ship this week but there is no telling. Thanks everyone!

Craft Craving Chicas

Hello everyone! So I just wanted to tell everyone to go visit my friends at www.craftcravingchicas.blogspot.com they used to be GGS gals and branched off a few months ago and started a kti club. They have such cute kits and the girls are super duper nice! So make sure you take a look or just say hello!

Also I just posted a new Urban Prairie kit up at the kit boutique so take a look at that as well.

Here's the video of my awesome birthday gift from the GGS gals I totally love it, can't say that enough!


Sunday, September 13, 2009

So excited!

Yaye I got an awesome birthday surprise from the GGS gals the other day! I did a video which I will post later. So, I'm so excited that my Hubby's family is coming down from Texas on Friday! I miss them soo much and they're going to be down just in time for my birthday so it will be an awesome gift having them here.

No news on my wrists yet, but I really appreciate all the comments and warm wishes. I'm sure they will be just fine, I just can't wait to find out what my options are and get them taken care of. I'm not worried about the cyst, it hasn't gotten any bigger, but it has gotten hard like a bone it's really weird. I think it's agravating my carpal tunnel because the pain radiates from there. Anyone else ever had this? Anyway just wanted to leave a quick update!

Sunday, September 6, 2009

Sigh

Hi everyone! Sorry I haven't posted lately, just dealing with some personal things and a little stressed out. Everything is just dandy though, been doing a lot of praying and taking it easy. I'm going to have my cyst removed hopefully this month or next. I woke up the other night in so much pain I couldn't even pick up a glass of water. I'm confident it's nothing serious though. We'll be running tests next week I think because we think it may be wrapped around my artery and nerve pinching them together. I really hope not because I want it out! Anyway just wanted to let you know that I'm still around. I just posted some new videos last night so I hope you like them!! God bless!

Mini Album Trading/kit club

Hi everyone! So, I have some exciting stuff to share. We have started a mini album trading/kit club. It was a secret for awhile, but now we're coming out as our membership spots are getting full. I wanted to open up the last few spots to those we don't know yet, even some we missed. The gals that are already in the club are some awesome girls who all get along and do amazing work. The way the club works is each month you make an album and you get matched up with another member who you send your mini album to and you get one as well. You also get a monthly kit, and I must say these kits are awesome! All the kits include products from a matching collection. Also our chipboard boardbooks are custom made each month. That means you get a unique book each month.

If you think you would like to join please leave me your email and I will send you a link to more info as well as a sneak peek for this month's kit. Also next month's kit is so awesome you won't want to miss it. Thanks guys! If I don't email you an invite it's probably because the club is full. I'm going in order though, so it's first come first serve. Thanks guys!

Do you want a Silhouette Craft Cutter? SOLD

Sold

Hi everyone!


I have decided to sell my Silhouette, the reason is that I'm not using it and have only used it a couple of times. It's a really neat machine that will cut any font on your computer, you can even download images to cut and cut any vector image and much more. I'm including sticky vinyl, a replacement blade, and the Spring collection that has tons of images and a apha set. Let me know if you're interested, I will ship internationally. I'm only asking $180.00. The Spring collection alone is worth $79 and the extra blade is worth $35. I bought the machine for $399.00 when it first came out. I'm asking $180.00 for it . I used this machine to cut out the owls in this video. I also used it for the Halloween mini album video.


Some fun news!

Hi everyone! Ok I have some great news........my videos are back!! Yes it's true, I'm going to start making videos again next week, and since I've just become a member of the video design team at Bluemoon Scrapbooking you'll be getting atleast 3 or 4 each month, Knowing me though, you'll probly get more than that. I'm really excited to get back into videos again, so I hope you all enjoy them!

Also, I'll be posting a new mini album I'm finishing up now, and I must say it's not my usual style, but when is it ever??
