Entry for Inspiration Emporium's Challenge

Happy Halloween!

Here's my entry for Inspiration Emporium's October Challenge. The challenge is to create a decoration for your home that is spooky. They had some great projects from their design team. You have a chance to win a $50 gift card to their store. Go check out the challenge page and see what everyone else has come up with to spook you this Halloween season.

The treat box is cut with the Silhouette. The bat stamp is from Stampin' Up using the new Illuminate ink and the "31" is from Tim Holtz Movers and Shapers. Hope you enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by.

Hey, hey

Hey all,

Of course it's been a while since I've posted. I have fun news though. I recently had a baby and my time has been spent caring for his needs. I've not had the time to do much crafting lately but that's to be expected with all of the changes. I've been making Thank you cards and birthday cards for when I need them. Otherwise I haven't been able to just play around and make something just for fun. I'm going to try and start making more of an effort to take the time to do something crafty.

While I've been up late at night though I keep thinking of all the things that I want to create and do. I want to work on making some layouts and cards, do some sewing, and finish the prayer shawl that I had started knitting. I need to have my creative outlet again and be able to have time for myself. Most of the time whenever I try and work on doing something there's always an interruption. I wonder how those of you with kids find the time to be crafty??? or is it something that you have the time for once the kids have grown up a little?

During my late nights, I have been thinking of how to reorganize my stash. I also have been slowly trying to de-stash. I've been doing that with all of my stuff not just my scrapping stuff. I so want to be able to really organize my stuff and find a home for everything but we're in a rental so half of my stuff is boxed up in the garage. It makes it harder to go through stuff when it's buried under other boxes, haha. Anyway, I want any advice you all have on making time to craft.

Thanks for stopping by.
