~2012~ review...
well hello lovey
i thought i would use this post to 
share with you all things i made over the year that i 
just didn't have the chance to blog about...

  i really wish i was better about keeping up with my blog and videos!
my new goal for 2013 is to try and put blogging and videos on my list of things to do 
at least once a week! 
hugs Kimmie 

HELLO 2013!!! GOODBY 2012!!!

 Hello all my lovely Blogers & Followers,
this isnt so much a crafty post but i want to share it with all you lovely faces!!!
well as this year begins in my house it seems to be moving kinda slow but steady for me and my family....
a lot has happened for me since my last post and well gee golly the joy is almost unbearable to not shout it to the world... in October of 2012 we were told by this amazing non profit organization who's sole reason for existing  is to help and give thanks to wounded combat veterans... a lot of my friends and followers know my husband was critically wounded in Iraq in 2009 it has been a very hard and long journey for us so with that being said it has made the announcement even more exciting this organization military warrior support foundation told me and my husband they want to give yes GIVE us a house a beautiful 5 bedroom house with adaptive devices to help my husband get the most out of life!!! I guess you cant imagine the feelings and emotions we went threw in the matter of minutes of that phone call :-) my husband cried the happiest tears and smiled so proudly and he has hope for the future again.... i couldn't breath i felt this weight of the world being lifted off my shoulders... I now know that things are only going to get better for my family things can only keep getting better..... the day i watched my husband walk off the medivac shuttle i knew i was blessed after thinking the beautiful man i married was dead for several hours to finding out he was alive but seriously injured but coming home very much alive!!!!!!!!!!! that day was the beginning of our new life together now a home of our own finally getting out of this perpetual renter cycle a bright future for our little boy and a place that my husband can be as mobile as he wants to be and a home to call our own............ the best gift we could have ever been given!!!
our beautiful new home!!
a couple more weeks and we get to move in!!!

month of Aug Design team projects

wow time has really flown by this year for me 
seems just like yesterday we were bringing in the new year 
at my house ......
well august brings alot of excitement for me because this month 
for Shabby Scraps we focused on using the gorgeous
fabric tape and i have had a addiction for that 
stuff since the very first picture was 
put up in the Shabby Scraps Shop. 
so with out further babbling lol 
here are some pictures 
 here is a victorian boot i found at a local
thrift/antique store it was in not so great condition but 
i seen the possibility's in it 
here is a befor picture 
  please excuse my messy desk lol 
its my creative process lol  ....
so as u can see i painted it white 
and then covered the whole thing in 
white lace then i use some 4 mm flat back pearl trim to
trimmed the whole thing 
then uses some pink eyelets and ribbon to lace it up 
then i made some cute rolled roses out of the 
beautiful Shabby Scraps fabric tape 
i know its pretty simple but i love the soft lady like  feel of it
pt.2 of the month of Aug DT project 
yep you read right this month we had to make 
two  yes two projects using yes my fav 
the fabric tap 
part two of this month was a theme we had to make 
a tag show casing the fabric tape 
well just one tag wasnt enough for me lol 
so i used my sizzix pro die cutting machine and 
the pro die titled album tags and made my 
self a sweet shabby chic mini for 
mine and hubby's 9 yr anni
so heres the pic
i used a ton of shabby scraps in this mini
and love the soft shabby chic look of it
