Where and what have I been up to?

Why I have been a little MIA...

Hi everyone!  I hope you are all having a fabulous day.  Today is pretty cold here in Utah.  It rarely has been above 0 over the past several weeks.  It sure makes me super grateful for a warm house.

As most of you have noticed... I have really been a slacker about keeping up with my blog.  LOL besides me just being too lazy to post anything new (yes, I am still crafting just lacking in the posting department)  I have kind of been busy with still unpacking and putting our house together.  We moved in around July and I am a SLOW SLOW SLOW unpacker.   I have a good excuse though... I think...

In 6 weeks we are adding two little feet to our family!  We are so excited:)  

In other news...

If you have been following all the new inventions and designs that came out at CHA, you probably are drooling over this as much as I am.  How cool is this?

Here is some info about this awesome Craft Armoire:
I'm excited to announce that we will launch the Craft Armorie on HSN in May! All the info will be up on our website soon at
The retail price is $250. It comes fully assembled and hangs over the door. It is 35lbs empty, 5ft long, 6.5 inches deep and about 15 inches wide.
What has been your favorite release from CHA?

Jinger Adams Gypsy Queen Clipboard

Hi everyone!  I wanted to share some good news with you, I am now on Jinger Adams design team.  I am so super excited to share a fun project with you using product from Jinger Adams collection.  Today I will be working with the Gypsy Queen collection.  Le me just say how amazingly gorgeous it is.  You must pick it up!
I love how all the paper coordinates with one another and their is even matching embellishments to go along with it.  It totally takes all the guess work out of trying to match papers and ribbons.

For today's project, I decided to make a fun altered clipboard.  I just picked up a plain blank wood clipboard and some black binder clips from an office supply store and started creating. 

 Products Used:

  • Wooden Clipboard
  • Blank Binder Clips
  • Paper- Jinger Adams (Gypsy Queen)
  • Ribbon- Jinger Adams (Gypsy Queen)
  • Mod Podge- I applied about 4 coats on top letting each one dry for about 45 mins before adding another layer. 
If you have any questions feel free to send me an email:

See you all next time!  
Hugs, Kassidy
