Crazy for Pinwheels

Okay, I admit it, I have gone a little crazy with the bigshot machine. I can't stop searching the internet for places to buy new dies. I am pretty sure that the Stampin' Up people are tired of me asking if they have this or that die. I had to have this pinwheel die. I heart it!! We had late sew at the shop last night and of course I went a little overboard with the pinwheels. So, I thought I would show you some of them. This will be part of this weeks make and takes ladies, It was going to be last weeks project (but, my back decided it didn't want to.) Call the shop and reserve your spot as space is limited. We will be making a cute "Spring Bouquet"
You are going to love this!

This is my reason for lack of posting. I have been "Spring" cleaning. I decided since Shelby had moved her bedroom downstairs I would take her old bedroom and make it an office/sewing room. I have a sewing room downstairs but I never sew in it. Well, up and down a ladder and whatnot I hurt my back. Gosh! is this a sign of my getting old? Anywhoo, I went to the doctor and he gave me a shot, and put me on some other meds, and supposedly I am going to be as good as new. I am still a little stiff and can't bend but, I'll be back in the shop tomorrow! Here are a few pic's of the new room. I haven't moved anything in yet, but plan on hitting Ikea tonight for my desk. I'll post pictures as soon as its all decorated and still clean!

Okay, its week 2 of National Craft Week! Here is this weeks project. A fun,cute & easy wreath made with Eden charm squares. The class is tomorrow (Wednesday) from 6-8 pm. Call the shop and reserve your spot as kits are limited. Of course, I made it using the Big Shot! I am totally addicted to this thing, Shelby and I have been cutting everything we can think of out of all the dies we bought. Too much Fun!!! I haven't forgotten about the tutorial from last week, I apologize, I took took pictures using my i-phone and my talented self thought I had loaded the pictures to my computer and erased them off of my phone, so they are lost in cyber~space!! So, you will have 2 tutorials to look at this week:) What can I cut next with that machine? Hmmm, I am off to try cutting out something new.......,
PS. Christy, if your reading this......, I am not sure that I can be taught this whole picture thing!!
