I Have Exciting News!

Hi Everyone!

I know I have been gone a long time.  I have missed you all.  This past year has been filled with both hardships and triumphs.  If you follow my YouTube channel, you probably know that my father came down with throat cancer, and we have had quite the battle, but thanks to all the prayers, he is now on the mend.  He still can't eat and has to be on a feeding tube, which means constant feeding, and with both my parents living with me, we have had quite a busy time of it.

With that being said, I have truly exciting news.  I have just joined Stampin Up as a demonstrator and I can't wait to show you all the exciting things I have learned.  I am just now getting this blog all set up, so you can see all the wonderful new ideas I have in store for you.

By the end of this week I should be up and running for you to be able to see my videos and place any orders that you would like.  I will share all of this information in my next post.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I look so forward to sharing with you in the future!

LA Garment District Haul

I recently visited the downtown LA Garment and Textile District.  I, of course, had a blast shopping...with one twist.  If you watch videos on YouTube, you must know Fi from Jennings644.  She lives in the UK and can't get all of the things we have here, especially at the prices we have.  She recently contacted me and asked if I would shop for her.  I was a little worried at first, but I said okay.  Since then, I have made a couple of videos showing the yummy stuff I got for both her and myself.

This video shows what I picked up for her.
If you look up her YouTube channel, she also shows a video of when she received it...I absolutely love her accent.
The next video is what I got for myself.
I will be listing several of these items on my Etsy shop this weekend.  I hope you enjoy these videos and just let me know if you have any questions.  Thanks for stopping by.  See you next time!

Filofax! I've been bitten by the Filofax Bug!

Hi, everyone!  I am back with my new obsession...yes, the Filofax!  I think I spend more time decorating and organizing...and, of course, buying supplies for my Filofax than I have crafting.  What's wrong with me?!  Well, I will tell you there is something very therapeutic about organizing my life.  I haven't taken a lot of pictures, but I did make a video showing my new Filofax and how I set it up.
I just like the feel of it and looking at the pretty pages...weird, I know!  I blame this all on Cara over at AKCaraboo, that is her YouTube channel.  I love her videos, and then I noticed she had a Filofax...I think the saying is "Monkey See, Monkey Do."  Yep, had to get one.......did I forget to mention shopping for supplies?  This is my first Filofax haul video, but I have a couple more to tape...yeah, I'm addicted.
So I will leave you all to hopefully enjoy my videos of my new addiction...maybe a few of you will get bit by the Filofax bug too!  See ya later!

My Time Made Easy August Release

Okay, I know, it seems like forever since I posted last.  I have been so swamped at work that I haven't had any time for the fun stuff.  Although, I was able to fit in my vacation last week...boy did I need that.

Anyway, my project for the day is the new Happy Hallows template that is being released this month over at MTME.  It is truly one of the easiest and cutest little templates to make.
 I used the So Fortunate acrylic stamp set for the pattern on the template.  I then colored it in with my Copics markers.
 I just love the Asian feel to these stamps.
 The stamp above the flower branch is the word for happiness.  I love that!
Please stop by My Time Made Easy to check out all the new templates that are being released.  They are absolutely stunning.  The team members also have some designs for you, so if you can, please stop by their blogs to give them some love!
  • On a side note, I don't know if you have heard or not, but Lauren at MTME has been asked to submit her products on a video for that not the best?!  Please watch the video and give your likes and comments in support of her.  I know she would really appreciate it!
    Thanks for stopping by!

    My Time Made Easy -- July Release Preview

    Hi, everyone!  I have so missed posting here.  I have been so swamped at work that every night and weekend has been spent working...which, of course, means no crafting.  I have so many projects in mind that I want to do that it is just killing me that I have to put them on the back with that said, I did find some time for this month's release, and you are going to love it!
    My project I am previewing with you today is called "In-Dispensable."  Don't you love that name?  I have to say it was very fun and easy to make, but so many ways to use it.  I love these gift box templates that have so much room in them, don't you?!
    I used the new digital paper pack that is being released this month.  It is called Petal Prints...I am in love with it.  I can't wait to make a card set with these beautiful papers.  I embossed a piece of vellum for the center using the Take Time for Petal Perfection acrylic stamp set.
    As you can see, there is a lot of room it!
    I just love these beautiful colors together.  I hope you enjoyed this sneak peak and please check out what everyone else has to offer.  I know you'll love it.  Don't forget tomorrow will be release day...yay!

    June Release Preview -- Simply Stunning Gifts

    Oh, my gosh, where did the month go?!  I had such good intentions and I have a million projects and videos lined up, but haven't had a chance to upload them.  June and July are going to be really busy months for my blog...I least that's my plan!

    Okay, so here is the big reveal!  Love this month!  I don't have a video on this project, but it is SUPER easy to make.  As a matter of fact, I made this for my daughter's teacher for her end-of-the-year gift and it went together like a charm.
     Don't you love these colors?  I used the new Tapered Off template.  It is so roomy and you can stuff it with tons of that!
     This little card I made out of a paperbag that I folded up and used the front pocket for a gift card and the tag that pulls out, I am going to write a little something for the teacher.
     Had to layer a little felt flower for the top, lined the lid with a bit of lace and bling.
    And you've got to love MTME stamp sets and labels.  This is the label from the Hauntingly Homemade Labels cut file and layered it.  I stamped the images on my tag with the Singing Silhouette acrylic stamp set.

    I hope you enjoyed this little sneak peek and I will be back tomorrow with a release project.  Please visit the other team members to see their designs.
