It's Been Awhile!

What has been going on? Beginning of the new school year, grad school, family and all the good stuff that goes along with it! I have had very little creative time in the past couple of months. Absolute craziness. Nothing bad at all. Just crazy.

No more shopping ban. That ended after my first paycheck of the new school year. I have been trying to keep it tame. (I say this and I bought a Cricut a super deal though!) Honestly, it is soooo much easier for me to walk into a store and out with nothing that it ever has been. Online is pretty easy, too. I think it was a great thing for me. I'm still trying to work through the crafty stuff that I already have.

Here are a couple of things that I made recently. The first is a card that just got mailed to my sweet friend Patty. Miss her! I need to mail out more cards to friends and family. No reason not to. The second is a baby shower invitation for my friend Kerry. We're all so happy for her! I used my Imagine to create the patterned paper and giraffe. Love it!

I like the layering of the sentiment and the subtly of the stamped roses.
