Basket Case

Have I mentioned lately how much I love my Silhouette?  It is so much fun to make fun little creations out of paper and use them to decorate the house.  This cute, little basket was no exception.  The sun was shining for my photo session today (hence the shadows) but at least it was a little brighter!  I used my Sew Easy on the handle of the basket to add a little something to it.  Even though it is cold outside, this brings in a little bit of spring!  

I am currently working on three different projects in my craft room.  Although I kind of redid my room last summer, I am really feeling crunched for space.  My sweet hubby suggested getting custom made cabinetry and tearing out a wall to make a bigger craft space.  I love the idea but I don't think I could fit that into my scrapbook budget!  Someday...right?

On another note, I had a birthday yesterday.  One more on the march toward the big 4-0!  Admittedly, I love my birthday.  I have never dreaded a birthday in my life.  I am just always so grateful to have another year on this earth with the people I love.  My life is sweet and I want to enjoy every moment God gives me.  I had a great birthday!  My hubby brought me to a local B&B on Friday.  Relaxing and peaceful without the kiddos.  I also got a new Keurig Elite Coffee Maker!  Does anyone have one of these?  If so, any coffee suggestions?  I am really excited to try it out.  I will feel like a real barista with that small appliance in my kitchen.  It even makes iced coffee so I am ready for warmer weather anytime now!

I will post my new projects as I finish them.  Hopefully soon!  Thank you for stopping by today!
