Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!!

Good Morning Family, Friends, Followers and Fellow Crafters,

Long time no post, eh?  It's been quite challenging managing life.  When I last left off, we were ending basketball season and now we are nearing the end of soccer season.  I love that my children are active and it is something managing all our various commitments.

Oh, here's something new.  I have joined the Planner Lifestyle band wagon.  I tried to fight it and was winning for four months, but alas, I have caved!!  I must admit, I like it.  I just started my calendar this week.  I'll share my first 2 layouts before the ink, next week.

It's TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK!!! I never want to miss out on an opportunity to bless my children's teachers.  A special shout out to my son's math teacher, Mr. Dudley.  He is AWESOME!!! He's had sooo many personal challenges this school year but he keeps his classes fired up about math!!

Do you know what this Saturday is??  It's NATIONAL SCRAPBOOKING DAY!!!!!!  I'll be crafting from 12pm - 12am, with my crafty sisters.  I am looking forward to it.

Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you real soon!

Altered Spiral Notebook

Good Morning Family, Friends, Followers & Fellow Crafters!!

I have a first for you today.  It is an altered spiral notebook.  This was a requested gift for a Grandmother, who recently turned 91. I had fun with this and I'm pretty sure I'll do more this year.

Mini Album Monday: Cupcake Wars

Good Evening family, friends, followers and fellow crafters,

I'm just barely making a Monday post, huh? Last week, via Facebook, I shared some photos from my daughter's Cupcake Wars party.  There was soooo much planning, prepping and fun, that I didn't get to finish the albums before the party was over.  Below is a small slideshow of the KitchenAid stand mixer mini album. It features puctures from the party and all the recipes made that day.

The shaped mixer is from the Silhouette Store and is by Lori Whitlock.

Enjoy & thanks for stopping by.

Mini Album in a box

Good Evening Family, Friends, Followers and Fellow Crafters,

I'm very Sorry for the delay on getting this video up.  Between two basketball games last week and being under the weather, it's been a whirlwind. Nevertheless, here is it. Thanks for stopping by.

Have a GREAT week!

Mini Album Monday: Mini Album in a Box

Good Morning Family, Friends, Followers and Fellow Crafters,

Welcome to another edition of Mini Album Monday.  I will try and get a video up this evening, but until then, here are the pictures.  Wait... a little history.  I've been wanting to make this for at least 2 months now.  All the tutorials online led me to sites, where I had to purchase a tutorial.  I watched at least 5 videos and I decided I was going to try this out instead of buying.  It took me a few tries but I like how it turned out.

Thanks for stopping by.

I created a stand so the gift would be on display.  These are doll pin heads.
I used Kathy King of Paper Phenomenon's Hidden Hinge binding method.

Have a GREAT week!

VIDEO: Mini Album Monday: 40th Birthday Celebration

Good Morning Family, Friends, Followers & Fellow Crafters,

WOW, it has been awhile since my last post.  I need to make up for that in December.  I have worked on several projects but I have to wait until the recipient has it before I show and tell.

For my friend's 40th Birthday, I decided to tackle Kathy King's (Paper Phenomenon)  Life in Retrospect Album 2.  I only purchased the instructions, so I certainly challenged myself.  It was fun and I can't wait to tackle another.

I hope you enjoy the video and thanks for stopping by!

Good Afternoon Family, Friends, Followers and Fellow Crafters,

School is back in and summer is slowly winding down.  It has been awhile since my last post.  There has been a lot happening but I have been creating.  This past weekend, I worked on these cups.  It has been a month since I last used vinyl and my little pick wanted some craft time.  WOW, Can you believe tomorrow is September 1?  Don't even mention how close Christmas is.

Thank you all for stopping by.

Cards, Cards and More Cards

Good Morning All,

For the past month, I have been working on projects that I haven't been able to share.  Now, I can pull the cover off and release them, lol!!!  My son is running for King, in a church pageant and I wanted to make something I could sell to help him raise money.  I was seeing giftbags all over Facebook, so I decided to give it a try.  More than just a bag, I added cards to them, so they could be sold as a set.  Some of my cards are Pinterest inspirted.

Thanks for stopping by!
