Getting Started and organized

I see it has been a while since I have been in here.  Work has gotten in the way, it is the last week of one class and there are always so many papers that must be  graded.  However, I have been doing some practicing with my new cricut and even have attempted to make a Valentine’s day card.  This of course is not going out to anyone, I just was working some magic to see what I could come up with.
We went to town this weekend to go see our Stars Hockey team play both Friday and Saturday night. We won both games and two of our players were players of the week. (great to add to a hockey scrapbook)  Great games, now I just need to get busy working on their scrapbook pages. There are only 8 home games left before they do the autograph session.
While we were in town my hubby took me to both Hobby Lobby and Michael’s.  I got some things on sale, (stamps, paper, paint, bows, roses, stickers) oh the list is long. We also got wood to make some shelving in my craft room and a pegboard.
This weekend, before the Super Bowl, my husband donned his carpenters hat and built me a nice shelf to hold my supplies, and he hung up a pegboard to help organize some of my smaller things. Next, he is going to build me a shelf specific to hold all my 12 x 12 papers. It will be about the same height at this one, but wider and have a lot more shelves.  Being organized sure helps the crafting go quicker.

Today and tomorrow I need to get more serious about the scrapbooking ideas I have in my head. They are building up and becoming a jumbles mess.  I need to get busy and get crafting.

I have added one new cartridge to my inventory.  I now have five.  J  The Cursive 101 cartridge arrived in the mail yesterday.
