Thank you card

Made this card for a friend who gave my better half a awesome fireman's helmet that he painted himself. of course with flames....lol Really though it is very cool.
So for this thank you card I had to use this fire house dog....lol I had seen this on my cricut cart thinking how am I going to use this little dog and then here was my chance. Seems like here lately we have been running into all Gene's ex fire buddies. He used to be a volunteer fireman at our fire department. This little guy will come in handy for photos I need to scrapbook of Gene working up there. Well thanks for looking.

Before and After

We are now on month three at our new house. I have slowly started to finally get stuff where I want it. The kitchen is pretty much organized where things work the best for me. Thanks to being inspired by Amanda at kevinandamanda.com She had some handy ideas for organizing cabinets. So now I want to work on our bathroom, and I am starting small and simple. I had a drawer that was a mess every time I needed something I would have to rummage through the drawer. It housed my makeup and products I use a lot. So I found this plastic container divider for 4.88 at target.
It's not perfect but for now it works and later on when I find something that works better for me I will transfer this to another place for use. Since I put this to use I have been able to get ready so much faster when I need my eye liner I know right where to look. I use bare minerals makeup and there are so many small containers its easy to miss place one. I now have a home for all the containers in one place, I use it then it goes right back to the home. And a place for the makeup brushes. The feeling I get when I am able to find what I need when I need it gives me the drive to now work on the next project. I am starting with small steps, but even this little organizer has saved me time and made life just a little bit more simple.

Mental Block

You ever have one of those days where you cant get any idea's well for my mom's birthday I had a major block. Did I mention it had to out next day in the mail...lol I had given up and was set to buy a card, which I hate. Then I was sitting at my desk and looked down and noticed a scetch I had made of a few card ideas. And the instant I seen it I knew what I wanted to do within 30 mins it was done and ready to go. I got that idea to scetch the ideas for another blogger and thought will have to try that and so glad I did. I was not super happy with the card but hey better than store bought...lol And from now on I think I will put my ideas on paper next time I think of cards ideas might be worth trying.
