I have always enjoyed being crafty. I remember getting really excited about stickers and fun stationary when I was little. Well its good to know that some things in life never change!

I was introduced to scrapbooking in 2005 and have been hooked ever since. My love of crafting has branched out to include DIY, projects, gardening, baking, and canning. I hope to share my projects here.

Machine Covers and a Crop Night out!

Hi all! Sorry to be MIA for a while. February is such a busy month with Valentine's Day, two of my daughter's Birthdays and my Anniversary. It seems like every year February gets crazier and crazier.

So I am late in getting this post up. I went to an overnight crop at a friends house and we made covers for our machines. My good friend Jan over at Craft Place brought the pattern and showed me how to make these reversible covers. I am so glad to have friends that I can learn new things from. Jan helped me make these and taught me a few sewing techniques, as I am a complete novice at sewing.

So here are my Imagine and my E2 covered. My covers are all black swirls on one side/hot pink flowers on the other.
Here is the other projects I did at the crop after making three covers:

I made 22 ice cream cone valentines and 23 Peace sign valentines, and 4 of the larger Valentines cards for the teachers. The Ice Cream cone and Peace Sign were both from SVG Cuts - 24 Valentines set. the teachers valentines use a heart shaped doily I picked up at target, and two different sized hearts cut from Art Philosophy and stamped with the coordinating stamps from the Mad About You CTMH stamp set.
Here is a pic of my Expression cover:
Here are my Friends and I sitting in Tina's AWESOME crafting space in her basement. We had a great time. I look forward to the next time we can do this.

Here are all my covers together set up at Tina's house, along with some of the projects we made.
I have an all day crop this Sunday and I am looking forward to hanging out with my friends and meeting some new crafty friends. As well as getting some projects done.

Thanks for visiting today.

Have a Great and Crafty Day!
