Just because I have not posted to this blog in like forever...
Does not mean I have not been crafty lately!! Actually quite the opposite!!
If I haven't mentioned it I have the best mom ever...for many reasons, but one of them being that she is great at giving me the
shove gentle nudge that I need to be crafty. Last Christmas Santa Claus my parents bought me a Silhouette Cameo. If for some reason you are not familiar with this amazing machine...it is a cutting system that works along with you computer. I have officially become obsessed!!
When we decided we are taking the kids to Disneyland for a big family vacation I started creating!! I want the kids to do as little complaining as humanly possible for little kids, so I decided a game might help with that.
I have seen different versions of travel bingo, but I wasn't too enamored by anything I have seen, so I decided to create my own with my Cameo!!
And Voila...A quick zip through the laminating machine (courtesy of my mom) and we have a game!!
And because I am working towards the "Mom of the Year" award...
I continued creating!
I decided that their first trip to Disneyland would not be complete without an Autograph book!! Again I was not impressed with the boring ones you can buy, so I created my own. I got some inspiration via Pinterest which led me to Craft-O-Maniac. I absolutely loved the Mickey Head, so I created my own using my Cameo. I decided to make different ones for each of the kids and because I was having so much fun I made them each two.
So...what do you think?? My kids think I am pretty great, but I guess they might be a little bias!!
I have quite a few more projects to share, so consider my crafty blog....BACK!!!!
