Did a bad thing!

I bought a MacBook Air. Shame shame. haha. But seriously I love it. It almost means I will be able to get on the computer more often. Blessed day!

Pocket Letter Swap and other crafts I've been working on

Hey It's been a while. haha. I finally have a little more free time now that I have a full time job (40 hours a week, and bennies-- huzzah).

I joined a local Planner group on Facebook. I have yet to meet with them, but I am excited to have more planner girls to talk to! I got all the ladies at work addicted to planners. We get together and work on our planners at least once a month and call it PLANNER GIRL DAY!

Anyway, the local Facebook Group Planner group does a pocket letter swap (I think once a month?) and I joined in the St. Patricks Day Swap. Here is my contribution. And it went to another Amy. Haha!

In January I created these cards:

A Pop-up Llama birthday card for my friend, Michelle. I used Lawn Fawn's Pop-up Box die and The Sassy Club's Llama stamp set.

Craft Dice


Sometimes I get in a craft slump, does this ever happen to you? If it doesn't, I'm totally jeally!

So, in the attempt to help inspire me to craft, and to step outside my comfort zone by creating CRAFT DICE!



Wha-whaaaat? you ask. and then you think: BRILLANT! It's kind of like Greeting Card Bingo. Well, I went to a craft store and picked up some wooden blocks. I decided to create two dice. One with craft goals that I have: work on project life, my memory dex, do wall art, etc. And the other dice (and I have two blank ones to add more) to decide mediums. I thought using mediums that I want to practice and, also, ones I am not using very well right now (Ahem, quilling).

I used a 1.5 inch hole punch and then drew pictures with multi-liners and copic markers to color them.

Here's what I made:

Originally I painted the wooden dice white. I disliked that. Blech.

Painted them gold. I LOVE GOLD. I should have accounted for smudges, but guess what,
 I am NOT a perfectionist and I don't mind. :)
two other (blank) dice, the craft dice, punch and paper :)



I thought this would also be really fun for Periscope and YouTube videos :)
