Lucky Duck

Two things to share with you today…

One. American Crafts sent a big fat happy box of their latest lines to me recently!!

DIY Shop. Complete with the most spectacular brayers and washi tape and tags and chalkboard stuff and the thickers are to die for… ok ok. I have to stop myself from gushing. You can see for yourself how epic everything is….

Amy Tangerine Plus One. The colors on this are the bomb ya'll. seriously (my photo does not do them justice). I am ridiculously excited about the bright floss assortment and super thin wash tapes and stamps and new stitch kits.. there I go again.

Dear Lizzy Day Dreamer. I love the glitter thickers that have some serious bling and the dots and the project life possibilities with the stitched pockets and the patterned papers are gorge… and the die cuts! Ok. So it's really hard not to gush.

I feel like the luckiest woman alive whenever one of these design team boxes lands on my doorstep. The products are all so unbelievably wonderful and American Crafts is so stunningly generous. I always lose my breath when I start to pull out the supplies… Hottie and the kids all say, "WHOA! They sent all of that? to you?!" haha.  I've already cracked into some of the supplies, I just couldn't help myself… and I can't wait to work some more. :)

Two. I posted this on my Instagram a few days ago after reading an email that informed me I had made the Travel Team! I'm officially skating with the Burning River HazMat Crew (which is kind of a big deal for me!).  (also, is this not like the LEAST hard core derby-like way to announce that you made the team?) haha. typical me.

It's both terrifying and exhilarating. I'm going to get my butt kicked so much! --but I'm also going to get so much better, very quickly. Lucky me… now if I could just keep this on a roll!


  1. Wow that is awesome apart from getting wiped out by another girl lol I bet it's super fun.. Love the new American crafts products..xx

  2. Wow! Can't wait to see what you create with all those goodies. I would lock myself in my scrap room for a month if I got all that!
    Congrats on making the team! Go kick some but girl ;)
