Penny deals and Birthday cards

Last week was a hot mess here with all the illnesses colliding at once. Kids were sick as was I. I can't shake the cold or whatever mutant strain it is the kids gave to me. My lungs feel almost full of water and my face is stuffed up. Wheeee, fun.

But I did manage to get some crafting done last week and this week as well. 

This first card is one we made using a random haul of supplies. We made a cute birthday card for one of the kids' friends. Daughter helped some. 

Second was a haul and card project from last week. Lots of Hello Kitty goodness. A more masculine birthday card is made from some of those supplies. It is crazy long. Crazy. I don't know how to fast forward parts yet. So you might want to speed through some of it...

Can you believe the one cent deals I got?? Those Squinkies will sit in the "Emergency Birthday Gift Stash" and the paper will get used up pretty quickly as well. 

Last Friday was a fun day here, Oldest won an award at School, for his grades. For being the first year in public school (we'd homeschooled up until now) he's doing wonderfully.

January 2013

Huh. This was supposed to start raging outta the gates on the first of January, as do most New Years Resolutions. But it seems I fell flat on that one right away. Ah, well. Better late than never. I did though get the second half of that resolution as I wanted. I began posting more You-Tube Videos of my crafting. Here's the links to the videos of this months cards so far. Hopefully I can get motivated to post weekly (as was the original plan.)

Haul and I love "ewe" Valentine Card:

As the year progresses, there will be more crafting videos, apart from just cards. There will also be gardening videos, videos showing my chickens, ducks, and such. And I plan on more pottery wheel and ceramics videos as well. There are some on my YouTube Channel (several links above) from last year, should you be interested in watching those.

Here's looking forward to a great New Year.


Just a PS, the old blog, www.xanga.com/mrsengeseth is still there, but remains inactive. Those that know me from there and those that don't are certainly welcome to read past blogs if you wish. I am, however, going to try to keep this one going instead. Somewhat more user friendly.
