RETIREMENT...DONE

Hey peeps.  I know your asking "what in the world happened to Dana?"  Well, this chick right here has been celebrating.  Last week was hectic and wonderful all at the same time.  My sweet husband retired after 29 years of military service.  We have been so blessed to be able to serve our great country.  I as a civilian and him as a CMSgt.  The celebration was shared with so many wonderful family members and friends. 

A sweet friend of mine helped me make some fabulous football apparel for myself and my kids to celebrate my hubby's special day.  Check these babies out!  We had purchased my hubby's jersey when he made CMSgt and so it was fitting that we wore jerseys supporting him and the number of years he was in. 


And her is the front of the jerseys.  I totally had to have glittered numbers and wording.  Of course, this girl here LOVES to sparkle. ;-)


Well I have to run peeps.  I know...my head is still in the clouds.  I won't have anything posted next week but I will see you the first week of March.  Have a fabulous weekend everyone. 

Go forth and be crafty~

Hues of Purple and Green - Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop

Hey peeps.  Where has this month gone?  It's already the 13th of the month.  Yup you got it.  It's hop time over at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  You should of come from Jenn's blog.  If not head back to the Really Reasonable Ribbon blog to start at the beginning.



This month's ribbon club assortment is gorgeous with hues of purple and green. Isn't this sooo pretty?  Oh it makes me think that spring is right around the corner.



Using this gorgeous ribbon I made this beautiful tag for a friend of mine.  She is going to LOVE this tag I'm sure.  It's right up her alley.


I'm going to have to find a bag pretty enough to match my tag.  Hummm...might have to make one of my Silhoutte and use some more of this gorgeous ribbon around the bottom.  Yes, that's exactly what I will do.  See I just needed to talk it through with all of you.  Thanks peeps!  Okay, now it's time to head on over to Kathy's blog to see what gorgeousness she has going on.  I'll see you guys soon.

Organize Those Embellishments FAST!!

Hey peeps.  When was the last time you organized your embellishments?  Since I have been a stamper I have changed my storage a million times plus ten.  LOL  First you think you have it the way you want and then you see a YouTube video or a post on someone's blog that makes you change your mind.  That happens A LOT for me.  But with tiny embellishments it's kind of hard to figure out what is just right for your stamp room.  Here are two ways I store my embellishments.





I would love for you to share with me how you store you embellishments.  There are so many crafty people out there I'm sure we have a million different ways to keep things organized.  Have a great day everyone.

Go forth and be crafty.
