Perks of Insomnia

The last couple of nights I have not been able to sleep, mostly because I am fighting some sort of cold and nap anytime I can during the day (big mistake!) So at night, I sneak away into my little oasis and create. I have been working on this one for a couple of nights now and finally have it the way I want it. I also got to use my new Pink Cricut Expression for the title! I have only gotten to play with it a handful of times, so I hope to start using it and taking advantage of all it has to offer very soon!

I have a feeling I am going to be sneaking away more often now since hubby got my last shelf put in today and I am getting all the final touches put in and all my goodies organized! :o) Thanks hubby! One of the mind-numbing things that helped to get me to sleep on Friday night was hand sewing the stems of all these flowers, cutting out the flowers and leaf petals, and sewing the buttons into the centers of the flowers... turned out cute, but so very time consuming.
