sunday stuff...

Sunday...where does the weekend go?

I'm going to be a busy crafty girl for most of the day...lots to do and can't wait to get started!

I have been having a love/hate dealio with all the CHA hoop'la....mostly because I'm not a millionaire and I can't afford all the FAB new stuff that they are showing...another CHA goes by and I didn't get to go, but I'm crossing my fingers for the Winter CHA 2012:)

Here are some linkies to some of my fav collections:




I spotted these over on the Craft Critique blog:



ugh, a new hobby for Amy....check out the kits HERE.

I actually don't have a card or layout to share with you today but I did want to sneak in some pictures that my boy has taken and edited...I won't be shy, I think the boy has talent:)


the boy took a pic of the girl holding those sweet blue blooms...



Hip 2b Square

I finally had the opportunity to get inside a 'new to me' brick and mortar scrapbooking shop that isn't too far from where I live...it is called Hip 2b Square..not just scrapbooking.  My timing was fabulous as Amy Heller was there {Hi Amy!} teaching a class and I had the chance to finally chat with that super over the top talented gal!  I wish that I could have taken the class but my day was packed'ola.  This shop is pretty fabbie and I will definitely be going back...I should have taken pics but with the class going, I didn't want to be a distraction:)

That's it for me....it's going to be a SUPER busy week on my blog...so be prepared:)

  21. Fun post, Amy! I can relate to ya about the CHA stuff. My trick is to not look too much at all the new stuff coming out, and then I won't want anything. Works for me. ;)
    And I agree with you....the boy definitely has talent. Uh-mazing!
