Playing with Martha Stewart punch

Hello bloggers,

I have been busy playing in my craft room. Here is one of the things I have been enjoying. I purchased this Martha Stewart butterfly punch a few months ago. Ever since I have used it almost everyday. How you may ask, well I don't throw away any scraps of paper that are left from my layouts or altered projects. I simply punch out butterflies and put them in a bowl.

This morning at 5am after preparing my husbands lunch for work and making him breakfast, I sat down and started gluing the 2 butterflies together. I have since made 107 butterflies. My husband just laughed at me and said what in the world will you do with all those butterflies, but I do have something in mind, just not sure when it will get done. I have put it on my to do list.

Here are the butterflies.

Hope everyone has been having a great week and has a great weekend. Happy crafting.

Some pretty things

Here are some pretty things I have added to my craft room. I hope you all like it.

 Fabrics I purchased recently at Joann's to make flowers with. For now they will sit pretty on this milk glass dish my sister purchased for me. I wrapped the fabrics with a piece of tulle and tied a bow.

 This pretty dish I found at TJ Maxx. I wrapped this pretty trim that Evelyn gifted me with and added some pretty roses I made (see picture below) a broach from Tammy and a flower from Alease.

 This bowl holds some glass flower buttons and some magnets from Micheal's 1.50 bin.
Here is an overview of my craft desk.

Thank you all for stopping by and leaving a comment.

Hope you all have a wonderful rest of the week and weekend.

My latest Tattoo

Yes, I got another one.

I had been wanting to get another tattoo, but my husband is not for them at all. I am not a freak nor do I like to have them all over, but don't mind a couple of them as long as they are not too visible. So his daughter asked him to go with her to have hers done, so we did. I was so excited, I said to myself for sure I will make an appointment for mine right there and then. Well the guy had a spot and was able to do mine as well. you may wonder, why a spider web. Well I was married on Halloween and knew that I wanted something that represented that holiday and also knew I wanted it behind my neck. My hair is long and most of the time it will be covered anyhow. I am still going to go back and put the year on it that we were married. I could not remember the year for the life of me. I know, bad, but it is the truth. My husband and I had been together for so long before we were married that I could not remember. I knew it was either 2008 or 2009 but could not remember. It was 2008 that we were married.

Here is the rough draft.

 Here I am on the chair going through pain. Yes it is painful. You feel like a burning pain. After all they are tearing your skin and inking it.
 AS you can see in this picture, the blood on the spider webs and the redness of the burning.

This is the finished tattoo. You can see the bruising between the 2 spider webs. He incorporated oranges and purples. When I go back he will be connecting the spider to the web and adding the date to the heart.

Please don't judge and just move on if you can't leave a nice comment.

Playing with prima doll stamps and clothes pins

Hello everyone,

I have had such a good time playing with my prima doll stamps. A scrappy friend came over today and we decided to make 4th of July tags with the doll stamp.

Here are the 2 I made.

I also altered some clothes pins. Fourteen to be exact.

Here they are.

They look so cute in one of my milk glass bowls. My new obsession, MILK GLASS.

I will post my milk glass pieces in a later post.

Thank you for stopping by and don't forget to leave a comment.
