Little bit crafty!

Man, it's been SO long since I've been crafty! Crafting used to be my life. Then life got in the way! I'm not complaining because I've been very busy with Kaitlyn being in Kindergarden and helping alot there, Girl Scouts take alot of time, keeping Kassel entertained, etc etc, I do miss scrapping and crafting but theres been lots of other great things going on!
I joined a die cut swap on my scrapbook message board, which I have been badly neglecting. These are the goodies I made for that. I still need to work on one more category but having problems coming up with something. I don't love the lollipops, but the rest of them I'm really happy with! Oh I just noticed you cant see the details on the mermaids face! there is a face on her! lol

Then I decided to make something for myself! I love crafting but I very rarely make stuff for myself or my house for some reason. I love giving gifts to people so besides my scrapbook pages I don't usually make stuff for myself. Since I'm going to be teaching (I still cant believe I'm saying that!) I decided I needed an altered clipboard! I used to make and sell them, usually around the holidays but sometimes for the beginning of the school year, but this one is for me! I was aiming at doing the colors in our classroom (pink, green and blue) but then it was going to be pink and green, and then turned into black, white and pink. I LOVE it! Here's the front (that will usually be covered and cant have much detail or makes it hard to write on)

and the back (the pretty side that people will see when your holding it)

What do you think? Theres one thing I wish I added to it, but of course I'm my own worst critique!
Now don't go on expecting to see more crafty stuff! I don't see when I will have time, but thats defiantly where my heart is and I hope to eventually balance my life so I have more time for it! Until then, theres my craftiness.... signing out!
