Let’s talk about who’s been a bad blogger?
This girl. Aware. Got it. Apologies.
Life has been insanely crazy recently, perhaps I’ll share a bit in my next post, but I wanted to stop by and let you know who won!
Congrats to my favorite SMASH-Booker, SuperCraftiFragilistic! Shoot me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your address and I’ll send the box your way! Some fun stuff in there you can use in your Smashbooks! 🙂
Thanks all who liked and commented!
If you don’t hear from me before tomorrow: Have a wonderful and safe Independence day! Don’t forget the past crafts from last years Independence Day!

Independence Mason Jars
First off, I’ve extended my give-away! It will now be up through June 21st: The First Day of Summer! (Ah em, are you catching the clue here? No, seriously, it’s going to be a fun give-away. 🙂
I was out of work sick yesterday and realized that in the midst of making all of these t-shirts, I haven’t made one for myself in a while! I had this design up for weeks in my Cricut Craft Room, but just hadn’t gotten around to making the shirt!
I’ve been a blogging slacker for the past few weeks. A few weeks ago I took a “staycation” and decided I was going to focus on me, myself and I. Unfortunately, the social media blogette side of me also went on holiday and thus, the updates having been occurring regularly: including “Treasury Tuesday”, etc.
So, I missed Mother’s Day a few weeks ago. But I hope you all had a GREAT Mother’s Day and enjoyed it with your kids, mothers, wives, sisters, etc. After taking my nephew to get his driver’s license that Friday, we all went out for celebratory froyo. My 5-year-old niece turned to my sister and said “Happy Mothers Day Mom!” and then turned to me and said “Happy Mothers Day Heather!” While I have not physically had children myself, I feel very protective and maternal towards my niece and nephew as well as our pup and all of my little craft projects. So I smiled really big and said “Thanks darlin!”
For my mother, I made a wall decoration that we’ve placed in the kitchen. It has one of my favorite quotes, that I think sums up our family pretty accurately. As she gave me my Cricut for my birthday, I wanted to use it to make her something she could see everyday as a reminder of:
- What an awesome daughter I am 😉
- What a great family we are
We really are and it’s not to say that we haven’t had our ups and downs (and sometimes disownments) but that’s what makes our family so ridiculous and amazing. No matter the hardships, we’ve all stuck together.
In the great words of Caroline Manzo: LET ME TELL YOU-A SOMETHING ABOUT MY FAMILY! WE ARE THICK AS THIEVES.
