Taking Time!

So I've claimed Wednesday nights as my craft nights! I'll cook dinner but after that it's the husband and kiddos who have to clean up and entertain themselves until it's time to get ready for bed and I'll come out when it's time for family prayer! I'm sure there will be things that come up. You can't have as many kids as me and not learn to be flexible but it's feel it feels good to at least have a plan. Crafting time was getting harder and harder to find! Sometimes you can't find time or make time so you have to TAKE time!

However, I didn't get as much time as I would have liked. Next week dinner will be earlier! ;)

I did manage to play around with this week's technique challenge as I said yesterday.


Here are the pictures of what I have so far:

Here I used the sand block and glossy card stock.
I'm not sure if it came out quite right
I think I need coarser sand block.


On these I used the tissue paper technique.
Of course, you now me, I didn't do it exactly like the tutorial I linked! ;)
I should make a video of how I did it.
It's been like a hundred years since my last video!
On the left I painted over it with Iridescent Medium using a foam brush to give it a shimmery look.
You could probably use Glimmer Mist to get the same effect but the Medium last soooo long and it is so cheap, I think. I've had mine do long I can't remember how much it was.

Hopefully I'll 'take' some time tonight to create something with these but I think my husband and I are going to make a Walmart run tonight. I know that probably sounds weird but with a family our size, plus a teenage boy, going to Walmart is an event that can feel like a full job, not to be taken lightly! :)

Be sure and check out this week's challenge: HIMCR #98 - Faux Linen to try out this fun technique. I've linked two different tutorials on the challenge post.


Also, Coming up here on Hiding in My Craft Room is the 100th challenge and we are going to be celebrating with a full day of challenges and giveaways! We will be kicking off the fun at 7AM Pacific time (California) with the first challenge and Design Team Blog Hop! I have several HIMCR sponsors helping us out so you don't want to miss it! Mark your calendars, June 1st! I've already warned my husband! I told him he could have this coming up Saturday and I get the next! I will be posting more details next week!


Thanks so much for checking in today!

Winners on Wednesday!

Ok, so I know I said I would post weekly winners on the following Monday.  However, I've decided to change it to Wednesday, Winners on Wednesday!  One, I think the name is catchy.  Two, Monday's have just become impossible for me to do anything except household responsibilities and Tuesday's aren't much better with my husband working with Cub Scouts that night.  So Wednesday it is!

A little bad news, I am going to have to start combining weeks more often or even do a monthly giveaway every now and again.  Unfortunately some of the giveaways from sponsors are not been redeemed and who wants to offer giveaways that aren't claimed! 

But the challenges and the fun will keep on coming!

Sooooo, on with the winner!! Only one this time!!  See, I'm getting better already! LOL!

HIMCR #97 winner is .........

Congrats Yvonne!  Please use the 'Contact Me' button to safely send me your shipping info.

Thanks to everyone who entered!  Be sure and check out this week's fun Technique Challenge!  I'll post some pictures tomorrow of what I've got so far!  It's a fun fun technique!

Winners!

I hope everyone had a fantastic Mother's Day! Mine was so good that we decided to extend it and kept the kids home on Monday and my husband took a day off from work! I love being a mom! I can't believe sometimes how blessed I am with such wonderful, sweet children! They work so hard to make my special days super special!
My littlest man on Mother's Day!
He needs to get his first haircut but he's my baby and my last and I just can't bring myself to do it yet!
 
 
Once again I have multiple winners to announce! I just don't know where my time goes lately. It seems like since we began packing, through the move, and even still I'm just not with it. I'm so thankful for all of you and your continued support. I know I've said it before! And I will keep saying it because of how much I truly appreciate you!! Now on with the winners before I get more behind! LOL!




Congrats to the winners! Please use the 'Contact Me' button to safely send me your information! Or you can also send me a private message through the HIMCR Facebook page.

Also, I haven't heard from all the winners from the last set of winners posted. Since I was late posting them I've giving some extra time for the winners to claim their prize! However, June 1st I will be reposting any unclaimed giveaways.

Thanks so much for all the gorgeous entries!

Don't forget this week is Super Scraps challenge, so get out those scraps and get your craft on!

HIMCR #96 - Name Your Colors!

Happy Saturday!! And Happy National Scrapbooking Day! Today is sort of sad for me because for the last two years HIMCR has had a day full of challenges and prizes; however, this year with everything that's been going on I've just not been able to pull it together. I am hoping that next month we can spend the day together!

The challenge this week is an easy one! It's a color challenge week but it is different this time because you get to use any colors just 'Name Your Colors'!

You have until Friday, May 10th (my birthday!) to link up your creation to get entered into the weekly drawing this week. When uploading to online galleries please use code HIMCR96.


Let's see the colors used by the

Hiding in My Craft Room Design Team

Be sure and check out their blogs for more details!
