My Cricut Cartridge Storage Solution

Cricut Cartridge, Book and Overlay Storage all-in-one Solution

I had seen a similar solution done a photo box and a separate box for the cartridges using cut plastic canvas to separate the cartridges.
I had a empty plastic storage box I wasn't using. I put the books in with the overlays behind each the book in alphabetical order. (The one I seen used the dividers that come with a photo box to label each book and overlay combo.) I found an empty checkbook box that I had and it worked perfect for the cartridges.

Here is a picture to show what I am talking about.

The checkbook box with the lid on slides in perfectly behind the books and overlays. Put the lid on and it's dust free, portable and more compact than anything else I have seen!

Just thought now that I should have took a pic of the box in behind the books, BUT you get the idea!

It's Snowing Again!!!!!

We had our first Newfoundland snowfall on October 28th! Since we have hard numerous flakes fall. Some have made their way to the ground, some stuck and other accumulated! The kids got to make their first snowman of the season, which I just love! I favor snowmen over Santa, gingerbread people, elves, reindeer and all other Christmas/Winter Season decor.


So, to celebrate my 1 year blog-anniversary at the end of January. I will be doing a blog hop with Snowmen in mind!

Please come back and visit! I am working on all various forms of crafting to be included!
Since I have little ones I thought having a variety would be great fun for what is looking to be a long winter, here!

Come Back and Hop Starting Friday, January 27th through Sunday, January 29th!

A Great Big THANK YOU to Sue in CT
who made me a great blog badge/button for the hop!

So, grab it and post! See you back here on the 27th!

If It's Groovy - Out of Focus Challenge

This challenge was a little out of the norm in that you should find a way to take a pic out of focus and turn that pic(s) into a layout. Well, I just happened to be scrapbooking our annual trips to PA. My Aunt and Uncle's property, which has a pond that is stocked full of fish. My husband, Gerry happened to finally in his element and I took a pic. Well, the picture below is what I ended up with. It's blurry but one of the best "Peace at Last" pictures I currently have.
