Day Two of the Reboot

This is day two of a full week of crafts.  I have been neglectful of the peace and joy that crafts bring, so I am making a concentrated effort to do at least one crafty thing every day this week.  So you will have to forgive the bad lighting on my pictures, because if I wait until the sun comes out, I won’t keep going.

I was at Craft Warehouse a couple of weeks ago and both the cutest stamp set with corresponding dies from Lawn Fawn.  What is sweeter than a gumball machine?  Last weekend I bought a new Sizzix A2 sized step up card.  And then I had the idea for this card.

Cute gumboil card!

I thought you might like to see my new storage solution for my Accucut dies.  These awesome cubbies are from Ikea.

I recently got a label maker so I could easily tell which die is which.  If you need any invitations or party favors, I’m your gal!

Chicago is Awesome!

I just took a vacation and was lucky enough to go to Chicago.  What a beautiful city.  I only had two days there, but they were well spent.  First we hit the Taste of Chicago.  Really tasty food vendors set up in Grant Park.  We tried Bacon Mac n Cheese, Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwiches, Rattlesnake Sausage, and the best Funnel Cake ever.

After that feast, we went to dinner at Pizza Rustica close to Wrigley Field.  After dinner, we walked down to the field and got to see a great game – Cubs v. Cardinals.  The game was a nail biter and the Cubs lost at the end of the 9th inning.  What a game.

We spent a whole day at the Art Institute.  What a way to get inspired.  Unfortunately, I don’t have that kind of talent.  We had to have pierogi while we were in Chicago, so we went to Pierogi Heaven and we tried 6 different kinds of pierogis – meat, spinach, mushroom, mushroom and kraut, potato and cheese and potato and cheddar.  Totally yummy (and boy was my Polish husband jealous).

Now that I am back, I had to do something crafty.  We have new neighbors, so i got a bunch of goodies at Trader Joe’s and made up a few change of address cards.  I used a retired stamp from Stampin’ Up!  Very cute!
