I've had the Just Beachy stamp set from Pink by Design sitting on my desk, staring at me, ever since I got it. So I finally sat down and made a set of five cards with them. They're all the same layout but with a different stamp and color scheme.

Keep Calm and Teach On

I did a craft show at a high school in the beginning of March. I knew that there would be some teachers there so I made these cards. All the teachers loved them!

Courage to Face Tomorrow

I needed a few sympathy cards and didn't have much time to make them. So this is what I came up with. I find sympathy cards so hard to find inspiration for.

Thirty-One Gifts

Hey everyone!!! Just a quick post to let you know of a new adventure I've embarked on.

I signed up to sell Thirty-One Gifts the end of March and I'm really excited about this new venture I'm on. Don't worry, this will still be a crafting blog. I just wanted to let you all know about this.

If you get a chance, head over to my website (www.mythirtyone.com/tanagarland) and check out everything Thirty-One has to offer. There's a great special going on this month. We're offering two sizes of duffel bags for a great deal. They aren't in the catalog and will be gone, gone, gone as of April 30th. So get them while you can! And, if you spend $35 you get the small duffel for $10 (regularly $35) or the large for $25 (regularly $80!!!). That's a screaming deal!!!

Anyways, thanks for your support. :)

Oh, and I'm still looking for my camera cables to upload the layouts I did on Saturday. I think a little monkey moved them for me. :/

Thankful for You

I made a bunch of thank you cards for a friend. Here's one of them. As you can tell, I've kind of been in a anti die-cutting phase. I think I get like this when I'm pregnant because I have to stand at my Cricut and Big Shot, and that puts a lot of pressure on my belly and takes energy. It just seems easier to sit. Hopefully this phase will end soon because I need to cut a bunch of elephants for McKay's birth announcements and the invites for Carver's birthday party.

All My Love Jar

Here's the card I gave Carver for Valentine's Day. I don't think he loved it as much as I thought he would but that's ok. I had a lack of inspiration for him this year.

Call Me Maybe

I'm baaaaack!!!!! This pregnancy has kicked my butt in the energy department. But since today was National Scrapbook Day, I figured I should get a few layouts done. I actually got four one-page layouts done!!! But... I can't find my camera cables. :(

So here's the card I gave Chris for Valentine's Day. I'm really going to try to catch up on all the projects I've done but not had the energy (or as Carver calls it: engine-ee) to post.
Spellbinders - Standard Circles Large
Pink by Design - Call Me
My Mind's Eye - Quilting Bee

In the baby department, I'll be 30 weeks tomorrow and everything is progressing perfectly!! Oh, and if you hadn't heard, we're having a girl! It's been a big mind set change but we're really excited. :)
