Hello everyone, welcome to our 7th of the month Cutting Cafe Blog Design Team Blog Hop.
We decided to do something a little different with our 7th of the month post.
Each of the ladies are showcasing a project made using some of their favorite sets AND they 
are giving away the very set(s) they used PLUS some of the ladies have other goodies.

So I decided to use the WITCH LEGS TREAT CUP SET.....

These treat cup cards are perfect for giving a card and a gift all in one......We offer several different treat cup cards over at The Cutting Cafe...CLICK HERE TO SEE THEM ALL.

Along with winning this cutting file, I am also giving away this TOTALLY TEAL COLOR KIT:
This kit comes from our sister site The Cutting Cafe Shop.
All you have to do to win the cutting file PLUS this KIT is leave a comment letting me know what ya think of the Treat Cup Card and then on the 10th of September, I will draw one name to win. (unfortunately this prize is only open to the US)

Now I will send you to the FABULOUS Sheryl Wilder. I am sure she has something amazing to share with you all.

Hello all, I am so glad you are here.
Today we are doing something a big different with our blog post for the Cutting Cafe April 21st post. Normally we showcase projects using different sets from the site but today I thought it would be fun to share with you all our craft spaces....
I must say that I have came  A LONG WAY....and am truly blessed and thankful to actually have a INDOOR space.
Many of you that have known me from back in the Cricut Days or BITTEN BY THE BUG DAYS know that my space for 10 plus years was in a garage..
I made the mistake of when we purchased a new house to let my hubby have the office downstairs and I would make my office out in the garage and while we had plenty of rooms indoors, I had several children also....
So anyhoo fast forward.........HERE IS MY SPACE..........

 YOU CAN CLICK ON THE PHOTOS TO MAKE THEM LARGER....if you have any questions, feel free to email me.....

in the beginning: (Was originally my older sons bedroom)

 few different room views:
