Rock the Block

I love, love, love this promotion that CTMH is starting soon! It starts on Dec 19th & runs through Jan 31st. When you buy $25 in products from the fall/winter idea books you can get this cute 9 cube set, plus an E-size stamp set, for only $15!
As a CTMH consultant, I got to order it early & play with it. I covered the blocks with CTMH paper & then cut out cardstock using my cricut (art philosophy cartridge) to get the letters. I created holiday messages on each side inlcluding... True Love, Irish Luck, Easter Fun, America, Halloween & Christmas!
Here is a pic of the completed blocks in their tray (that also comes with the set!).

Scrapbook Room Makeover and Move!

Well I have come to a decision and I am moving my scrapbook room upstairs and taking over the formal dining room! I am so excited about this move!

So far I have a smaller dining table in there, seats 6, so probably 4 could crop at it comfortably together. Then have an even smaller dinette table in there, in the corner with my cricut on it already. Then started bringing my cubes up from down in the basement, so far have 9 cubes up and stacked 3 high, 3 across, along one wall in my new scraproom. It is looking great!

Will keep you updated & stay tuned for a Grand Opening when I have everything all sorted out and set up! Can't wait to show it off to my local friends!

Soda Stream!

As some of you may, or may not know, I am a BZZ agent! That means I get to try out products and spread Buzz about them. The latest product I could get to try out is the Soda Stream machine. I would simply love the chance to try this out and make my own sodas.
When I grew up, in England, my aunt & cousin had one and I was always so jealous of them! I would try it when I went over and it was yummy!
Now I am hoping I may get the chance to try it for myself. I think I will love it!

Massanutten Resort Review

Well we had an amazing time at Massanutten and hope we got the opportunity to go stay there again some day! We stayed in a condo at Eagle Trace & it was beautiful. The view from the back deck was of the mountains, just amazing! Front was just a small deck, no real view, but did have a gas BBQ which we used!

They had some great indoor and outdoor pools which we made use of. Plus tons of activities going on every day. Most you had to pay a fee for (around $10-$35) but all were well worth the money. Well except for one... scrapbooking for kids. Maybe as I am a scrapbooker I was expecting too much, but for $10 I thought they would make a page, not a tiny trifold card (that I could very easily have done at home). That was my only complaint though. All the other activities were well worth the money.

My girls did tye-dye shirts, stained glass stepping stones, pony rides, candy bag bingo (which they loved) & various other things!

You do need a car as everything is a drive away. You drive to the pool, drive for coffee, drive for the activities etc.

Should also note there are a couple of grocery stores within 10 minute drive, and our condo unit had a fridge/freezer, microwave, toaster oven, & the gas BBQ. So we cooked most meals ourselves.

Any questions on the place just ask, but really recommend the resort. Would like to go back in the fall some time, bet it is beautiful with all the trees.

Massanutten Resort here we come!

Found an excellent deal, so I will be leaving on Saturday August 27th for 7 days at the Massanutten Resort in VA. It will just be me & the girls as DH has to stay home & work. So a fun girlie getaway and I cannot wait!

The resort looks fantastic with indoor & outdoor pools, as well as lots of activities. We will also take a day trip to the Luray Caverns as those are just 45 minute drive away.

I will try to check in when we get back & post a review of the place!

Beautiful Wreath I Made!

Well yes, I am still loving the new CTMH Cricut Cartridge called Art Philosophy! This is my latest creation using it. I cut out about 350 roses & glued them all together, then pinned them on this styrofoam wreath.

The result is beautiful!
