I am sorry it has been so long since my last post. There have been many things going on in my little universe. A vacation, a move and a whole bunch of other stuff all crammed into one little month.
I am finally all moved and will hopefully have all my crafting and sewing paraphernalia sorted so I can get some work done!
The beginning of June started with an amazing but too short trip up North to Rock Creek in the Mammoth Mountains for fishing and some hiking. The pictures are from day two, You would never know it but the day before was overcast and the second we hit our camping site it started raining! So we had to set up our tents in the rain! I love the rain and we were quick at tent set up so at least we were able to get a fire going …. I must say there is nothing like sitting out in the rain around a fire in the woods! It is amazing up there, It’s crazy to still see snow on the mountains in California in June.
Much more to come so keep in touch!
Cinco De Mayo is Monday, May 5th. I am Mexican, German, English, Irish, and Spanish, so I love the plethora of celebrations throughout the year! Famous for backyard bbq’s, vibrant colors, loud music and celebration, Cinco de Mayo”the Fifth of May,” is a Mexican Holiday that actually celebrates the Battle of Puebla. This battle took place on May 5, 1862.

Have a wonderful holiday everyone! Be SAFE!! ….I mean it 😀
Making your own cards is such an awesome way to inspire someone, cheer someone up or simply let them know your thinking about them. Everyone loves to receive a card and if your like me you probably have tons of scraps somewhere.
What better way to use them up than to make cards! I try not to throw anything I can use in a later project away, which means I am always looking for ways to use up old scraps of paper! I made a bunch of inspirational cards last year, it was really fun, and it was a great way to use odd scraps.
Here are a few ideas to get those creative juices flowin’!
Do you like to make cards out of scraps? Or have you been inspired to make one? Leave a comment, pic, or drop a link I would love to check it out!
