Where’s Kerrianne and her cards? In case you are wondering why this poor little blog has been so light on content lately, I’ve been busy “crafting” away a little one in my tummy. I am almost to the 3rd trimester (2 weeks to go) and I seriously can’t believe how fast this year is flying by. To sit back and realize it will be June in a week blows my mind.

Before Baby Bowen, I was able to juggle a very demanding full time job, 2 step kids, and a blog with crafty cards. Unfortunately, with work getting even crazier, and pregnancy taking the energy out of me…you see where we have ended up. I hope you will still follow along with me when I do get to post, and I really do want to make it more of a priority!

I’ve actually found humor in some of the delirious times so hopefully I can share more of that with you in the future. I will still be playing along with WPlus9’s beautiful releases and hope to get some time this summer to play along with more challenges. I hope this finds you well…and know that I still use my lunch break to scope out all of the beautiful blogs out there. (due to the crazy firewalls at work I can’t comment on them though!)


In baby updates our little girl is growing fast and I can’t believe we only have 3 months to go! I feel her more and more every day and can’t wait to meet her. We’ve decided on a name and I’m in love with it already. June 29th we will be doing maternity photos and I can’t wait!

Circus Fun

I have to admit. I think I’ve lost some of my crafty “mojo” the last couple of weeks. There has been SO much going on in my life lately, along with some physical things as well, it truly has been hard to find my creative spirit. I thought after the wedding I would get a nice little “break” and slowly get back to reality. Unfortunately, that was a dream. Life had different plans!

I thought I had lost all hope till I came across these fun patterned papers from my stash (Stampin’ Up!). It’s amazing how products can be so inspiring. I think that’s going to be my resolution for 2013 in my card making world. Work with products that don’t make it work! If I had all the time in the world I would love to create my own details, but unfortunately I don’t right now (and probably won’t ever!). I hope to find many more products to “inspire” me and keep me going on this crazy road ahead!


I knew I wanted to play along with Retro Sketches Challenge #46 .

The sketch is just so fun!

And I just love the how the bright turquoise base makes the sentiment stand out so well. I drew my colors from the papers and the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger. (doesn’t that bed look so cozy!)

What are your “go-to” products when you are having a creative rut? Hope you are having a great week!
