The weather outside is frightful...

Just when we thought we weren't going to see anymore snow (or very little) the rest of this winter, it started to snow and snow a lot! Sooo needless to say I haven't been out of the house that much. The upside is I've managed to get caught up not only on housework, but I've had extra time to play with my friend, Cameo. I still have the Valentine bug and I loved making this train so much at Christmas, I thought I'd do it again!


 I should take a moment and say I have a subscription with my Cameo. I pay $19.99 a month for $150.00 worth of downloads. I really like it. It's a great (like super great) deal and there's lots and lots of really cool stuff to be used! I'm starting to wonder why though. I didn't realize how much I've been using my SVG Cut kits until I started this. I should probably look into this...

Anyway...

It goes without saying the best thing about the SVG Cuts kits are they are so stinkin groovy! I would say the next best thing is th…

Sweet Lil Valentine Box

Valentine's Day is fast approaching. It seems like it was just Christmas! I think it's been nice to switch gears after a major holiday like Christmas though. So my first Valentine project for the year was this box. I wanted to make something quick and bright. Well, my idea of bright anyway.


This is the first time that I've made the box, but I've made the begonia before. It's probably my most favorite flower out of all of the kits on this website. 
I inked the edges of the top and the bottom box and the tip of the flower petals. I also used Martha Stewart Glitter Paint on the tips as well. Which I really dig, by the way! I usually won't buy Martha Stewart products of any kind. As a rule I won't buy anything, for any of my hobbies, unless it's on sale or I have a coupon for it. Most coupons exclude MS products, but any who I happen to come across a pretty decent sale on this line of paint at Michaels so I thought I'd give it a try. It's fabulous! …

Who knew?

When I got my Silhouette Cameo in September of last year, I got it so I could create and cut more intricate designs for my sewing projects. Sewing is my first love. I had no idea the door of creativity that would open up with this machine! Since I got it, I've used it once to cut the Rainbow Dash Cutie Mark for my daughter's Halloween costume. After that I picked out some paper to make my niece a birthday card and then somewhere along the way I discovered the SVG Cuts website and it was all over from there! Who knew you could make such amazing things out of paper! Paper people!

Two of my favorite things about sewing is the fabric and how tangible the whole thing (whatever it is I happen to be making) is when it's done. There are soo many fabrics out there. So many different colors and textures. The sky is the limit! When you've finished with your creative process and you've completed your project, you then have something tangible. You can see it, touch it, smell it…
