where’s my heart?! — giveaway

Let’s just say that I have been crafting my little heart out over here.

Memories Live On/Scrapbooking Supplies R Us wanted me to play with a stack of Hambly products for their CHA Craft SuperShow booth. Seriously though, they’ve got some cute and vibrant stuff! On top of that, they are based near our place in Santa Clara, CA. Wahoo for local crafters! πŸ™‚ Here are some of the layouts I created for the booth:

Shy Cat

I have also been playing with new stuff from Imaginisce. …and did I ever tell you that I love the i-top?! I love that you can make your own brads (and magnets, too)!

See the World

…and here’s a butterfly I created using the Imaginisce i-top and some o-wires from Zutter.

If you are interested in making this butterfly, I created a video tutorial below. This is my first video tutorial, so please let me know what you think of it, okay?…and don’t be too harsh on me! I’m an amateur at making videos, lol. *wink*

So… what’d you think?!

Oh, and while I was out running my errands today, I totally took a detour to the thrift shop to look for some great finds. I found some new decor for the house!

Check out the fabric "S" monogram I found for $.99! It looks great on our mantle! Now, if I could only find a "G" monogram too.

I couldn't find the exact lamp, but I found one very similar. The best part about it was the price -- $14.99! What a steal! It's already being utilized in the family room.

Gloria started taking pictures of our dinners. Don’t ask me why she started to take pictures, but I thought they were fun to look at.

Gloria made this. THUMBS UP on this dinner!

I made this. Gloria loved it, so I guess it was good. πŸ™‚

Last but not least, I picked a random winner for the Imaginisce giveaway. The random generator picked…

  1. CHRISSY!!!!!!!

    And FIRST! LOL! Beat you G. πŸ˜›

  2. Btw, where is that lamp exactly? More lighting is a good thing imo. I’m all about saving energy, and whatnot, but I like light–lots of it.

  3. You misspelled Chrissy’s name! You forgot the “H’ in there. πŸ˜€ I won’t tell her though.

    She’s been taking care of me while I’ve been sick. She’s been following me around since Friday (even downstairs) and is always nearby. Meowing more too.

  4. I could’ve sworn it was CRISSY! the new lamp is now in the place of the lamp that was by our media console… now the old one is in the scraproom.
