I have been MIA, but busy!

Hello everyone!  Sorry I never posted during the holiday season, but I kept really busy!  Here is a pic of what I cut out of Vinyl with my Cricut and put on the living room wall.  It is a little crooked, but so is my eyesite I think!

And then in the last couple of weeks before Christmas I got the wild and crazy idea to make 3 couch size quilts!  Yes, I know, really should of allowed myself a little more time for these!!  The Bears one I made first was for Josh and Jess.  I got to watch them on Skype open it on Christmas morning and I think they loved it!  Then I also made a Bears one for Kim, and a Packers one for Andy.  Now, Andy is tall so I wanted to make his a little longer but think I may of over compensated!!  Josh and Jess's is a little wider cause I wanted them to be able to snuggle under it together, and Kim's is the smallest.  Think this pic is probablyJosh's, but other than the size both Bears ones are the same.  Making these turned out to be a real challenge because by the time I got to work on Kim and Andy's, Joey was out of school for break and here for daycare.  So I had to swear him to secrecy on Andy's and told him the Bears one was for Josh.  Little did he know I had already mailed theirs to them, and the Bears one I was working on was for his mom!  But he kept my secret and everyone was surprised!!     Maybe next year I will make them for the kids, but if I do, I will start on them a lot sooner than 2 weeks before Christmas!

And no, I didn't send the cat out to CO with the quilt!!

Now I am working on an altered journal for a Magnolia Swap I am in on the Cricut Message Board.  My partner is Dalia and she has posted a couple of sneek peeks of my journal and it is going to be beautiful!!

That is all for now.  I will try to post back sooner this time!!
Have a great week everyone, and Happy craftin!!!!
