Why Hello crafty friends, it has been a good while since I have updated my blog. I am super busy these days, I am now a mom of two little ones. My oldest is now 3, and my baby girl will be one February 9th. Time has went by super fast with these two. I hardly have time to make any cards or projects. I am super bummed about that. I miss crafting and viewing blogs. I'm not making any crafty promises this time around cause I never follow through...haha. I hope everyone is doing well, and those that have stuck around, Thank You! I have been working on my little girls birthday decor, just going simple polka dots/sprinkles theme. I'll work on getting pics up on here soon as I get me some more Scotch quick dry. My other dried up, goes to show when the last time I have made anything. Life has been busy for me. I try to work on crafts when hubby is off, if I get a chance to sneak to my craft space when he gets home I don't like to spend too long, he did work all day and the kids are wild and into everything. Still a SAHM, I love it but it wears me down fast. My toddler is now a Threenager....yes that is real and it is going on in my life right now....ahhhh haha. I will tell you all this, I do feel at home and at peace when I am crafting, making cards. It was my hobby for a very long time, so when I don't get to play or make time for myself I get drained and bummed out a bit. I'll be okay though, I got this, there has been threenagers before, insane toddler meltdowns. His doctor says its normal, friends tell me its normal, I'm leaning on God and good friends to get me through these toddler years. We don't have family near so it is hard to depend on family to come and watch them for a few hours, and then you feel guilty for leaving them but, it sure does feel good those 2-3 hours of just you time. I will tell you our little girl is so different compared to our son. Totally two different people. Anyways I won't bother you all with my mommy drama haha, just wanted to hop on blogger, visit some blogs I follow, etc. Hope to be back on here soon. Until next time, happy crafting and God Bless you all.
Hugs, Sheena aka Tired Momma

Hi Everyone!! Long time since I have been on here. Been so busy with little man, and other things going on. Its hard to find time to sit and make a card. I'm glad I got to make one today. I made this for a dear friend. I used the "Free, Make It Now" on the Cricut Design Space. I never done that before and saw this card and really like the design, and I needed a "Thanks" card. I changed it, by doing my own colors. They had pinks picked, but I wanted something bright and summer like. It did take a bit to cut cause all the detail. Also I dunno if it's just mine or anyone else's but when it scores my cards to fold later it don't score right in the middle, its kinda off, so I have to do a quick scoring of my own to try and fix it. I hope you enjoy my fun summer card. Sorry the lighting is kinda off today, it's gloomy here (expecting more storms). The yellow is BRIGHT yellow. In the full card pic it looks much darker.

Hi Everyone!! Sorry I haven't had a post the past few weeks, I have just been busy and not really having the creative juices flowing. Every time I try to even use the Cricut Design Space App I don't ever come up with ideas that I really like and would cut. Anyways, I needed a card for my Mom, from me and my sister. It needed to be pretty, but not a lot of detail since I will be mailing it to her. She don't live near me, and me and my sis always go in on a gift and card. This year my sis bought the gift, and I made the card. I know my mom will love this card.
Cricut Explore: The images are basic searches like, Circle, Oval, Rectangle, and Mom. I stretched the Blue circle to make it an oval. I love Design Space, being able to do that.

I hope to get some good card making mojo back, I miss playing with my cricut and all my paper. I keep buying the smaller paper packs like 6x6 and 5.5x 8.5 packs. I don't seem to waste as much. Just need to make more projects so I can use them. Thanks for stopping in, hopefully it won't be such a long break next time.
Have a Great Mother's Day to all the wonderful Mom's out there.
