joy fairy

I want to get back to creating stuff, playing with what I have and using up all this awesome stuff I I dug out my viva las vegas stamps and created an ATC!

I was inspired by the current challenge over at viva las vegas stamps blog, I used the blue colors, and the white at the bottom...and then for my flying fairy image I used greys and pinks just like the mermaid! so in keeping with trying to get rid of stuff if anyone out there wants this ATC I'll happily mail it to you. we can even swap if you want ;)

GIU day 5

Today is my last day as a GIU gal and I'm so excited I got to share with you this week! Thank you all for the comments! I really do appreciate it! I wish I could post more than one project a day (like I planed) but I just ran out of time...a 6 yr old, 3 yr old and a 2 month old baby will do that to ya I guess :)

for my final card I created a background and did some paper punching and then made a...what is this called keyhole..whatever I did it was fun, and my little girl loves it...and that's who it was I guess that's all that matters right?

Thanks again, I'll look over all the comments and put names in the random generator and get some winners selected and let you all know ASAP! 
much love

GIU day 4

This is the journal cover I created that yesterday's project is in.
I stamped my unity stamps then just went crazy with inks and paints, then I couldn't think of how to attach this to my composition in came staples to the rescue! I really like this quote on the front of my journal "forget all the reasons why it wont work, and believe in the one reason why it will." I have such a problem with my art and posting it in fear of being rejected but then I figure I wont grow if I don't try, and I do love sharing my work and I love creating things...just sitting down and creating without rules. I think that's what I'm going to fill this journal up with is just some crazy art work and just allot of fun! Do any of you journal?

GIU day 3

Today I have a journal page to share with you.
I did the background with acrylic paints, stamped some unity stamps in the background, got some big flower pics and my girl and a quote, I realized to late that I should have only done a one page spread and I didn't have enough for 2 pages, but hey I'm learning, I also think this page isn't done but I don't know what to add to it...any ideas?

GIU day 2

and if you were here yesterday you know how it I'm just going to jump right in
this is a little junk journal that I made with some old junk mail, the cover is the only "new" paper I used...and I painted the background, then stamped my unity stamps and I only added a little color to my lil flower at the bottom with some fingernail polish (it I wanted a pastel color and somewhat of a transparency and there was nail polish in front of me so...why not?) I have wanted to make one of these kind of journals for a while now and I'm so glad I did, now I'm creating art and recycling at the same time!
have any of you made a junk journal? If so please leave a link I'd love to see...I'm new to junk journaling and love inspiration!

Smeared Ink Reunion Blog Hop

I'm so excited to be a part of this blog hop, getting back together with old friends just like when I was pregnant the first time :) this is such an amazing group of artists and I'm not just saying that I really do love them, I have been inspired by them and they have been there for me for all my hard times! I got some amazing gifts for my first baby, some from across the pond (my kids have an aunt that is a should be jealous) even just the hand made cards were enough to make me feel special and loved, and then not to mention these girls being there for me when my mother inlaw and best friend died, just wow I love these guys! but you probably aren't here to hear me reminisce about the good old lets get on with the hop.

So like I said I'm pregnant again (32 weeks today) so I made some baby stuff...again :) 
So I used one of my all time favorite stamp sets Grumpies and lil grumpies and then me and my kid's favorite stamp Stumpy (I have a key-chain with this lil guy on kids call it an owl) and I have made this little outfit for my new addition and then I made some shoes to match (the onsie/vest I purchased, the slippers/shoes I made) 

I just stamped him on there with some stayzon ink...I made some clothes the same way for my now 5yr old and they still look good so I know it works :)

I also was playing around and stamped on a bib with the candy is dandy set...can't read it very well but it says sweet this I stamped with acrylic paint.

here are past things I made for my other babies (they are now 5 and 3!!!)

thanks for stopping by...have fun on the rest of the hop!

cloth pad info

but look at that...Daryl, Ghostbusters, Jason, even van gogh
there were allot of questions about my post earlier today, and that makes me happy, I'm glad some of you are curious, and if I don't answer all your questions please feel free to email me {at Kapreec at}
so here are some sights to look at if you have lots of questions about cloth pads
 but the reason I switched is
-for starters they can be so cute! any fabric I want, and its just there, it kinda makes my time of the month exciting...ohhh which one do I get to wear today :)
- with disposables I was always itchy and uncomfortable, and by the end of my cycle I would have a rash on my legs from where the pad would rub...made me wonder...what the heck is in these things..answer: allot of harsh chemicals.
- I was using cloth diapers for my son, so why not for me too ;)
- shorter cycles!!
- great for my 72 hr kit :)
these are just some of "my" reasons, there are a ton out there and I have more reasons I wont get into here, but just know I'm not crazy, I love to sew and this is what I choose to sew right now :D

Unity girl day 2

so I have been more into sewing lately, more than crafting, and I'm slowly converting my craft room into a sewing room, so I thought I would combine the two, I went and got some fabric markers and colored on my unity stamps and created some reusable cloth menstrual pads.

these are actually just pantie liners, but I took some stamps I think all these ones were from the Gina and me set...the stamping is very faint but its hearts and butterflies.

thanks for stopping by on day 2...if you have any questions about my project or Cloth pads please let me know...because I love talking about it :D

I want to be the best mother I can be so I stayed home, and then I made this page...I saw the quote on Facebook and used it...the stamp is called faceless beauty...and she came with a quote that is more faint in the pic than in real life but its next to her...this page just made me feel better, it just made me happy! which is what art journals are for right?!? oh and I used some butterflies from the Gina and me kit.
