Hello Everyone, Happy Hump Day!

Here in Va. Beach we are having rain and 80 degree weather.  Where is Fall?  I guess it will be here tomorrow since it's suposse to be 60 degrees then.  No wonder everyone is getting sick.

Well, on to my post for today.  I make Cancer Awareness Bracelets and I mentioned a few posts back that I would put a picture up.  Well today is finally the day.  If you would like to buy one please email me.  The left bracelet is a Cancer Awareness Bracelet representing all the types of Cancers, and the right is for Breast Cancer Awareness.  All of the bracelets are made with Genuine Cats Eye Beads and .925 Sterling Silver.

As I have said in the past I enjoy making a lot of different things and this is one of them.  I am currently making some for my daughters Elementary School to help there Relay for Life team.

Well that's it for now I may get back to post a few more projects I have been doing but until then.  Have a great rest of your week.

Well, I was finally able to sit down last week and make some cards.  I am making cards to send to my mom in No. Va. for a Craft Fair that she is doing.  It was nice to sit and be creative with cards again. 

This is my first card:

I made 5 of these cards and placed them in this purse.  I found the template here.  I think they turned out cute.  The purse is super easy to make.

My second and third card are ones I made to put in my etsy shop.


I hope you have enjoyed these cards today.  I will have more posted later.  I will also be putting pictures up of the Cancer Awareness Bracelets that I sell.

Have a good day!

Hello everyone,

Still no cards to post I am working on them as I type.  Stayed up for the Papertrey Ink Release party last night and all I have to say is WOW!  I got the sets I wanted and can't wait to start making christmas cards.  To visit this awesome site with I think the best Design team in the world, click on there blinkie to the right of this post.  You will not be dissapointed.

Thanks it for today, very rainy here and trying to stay focused instead of in bed for a good rainy day nap.

Wow!  It's been a week since I posted.  I have been meeting some design and order deadlines this week that's why you haven't heard from me.  Here is a picture of fall on my front porch.  Sorry to say we havn't seen fall yet in Va. Beach with temps. on Friday in the 80's, so I needed some inspiration for a change of weather and a season that I love.

1)  I have been working on my Cut the Crazy out of Christmas binder shown below.  Every Thurdsay through next week there is new stuff to download and new projects to do, so that has been keeping me on my toes. I take this workshop thru Big Picture Scrapbooking.   Click on the link to the left and see what they are all about.  I love the workshops.  Some of the stuff for the workshop that you work on is getting out those Holiday Recipes and put them into the binder, pictures of past Christmas's where you liked how you decorated your house so you have it for future reference.  It also gets you to start thinking about gifts and what your going to do so that by the time it comes around you are not stressed to the point of just wanting Christmas to be gone.   That is where I have been in years past.  It has been and very aggravating day that I just wanted to be over.  I don't want to feel this way anymore and the workshop has really been helping.

2)  I have been taking another Self-Paced Class by Ali Edwards which is a Family Gratitude Spinner at Big Picture Scrapbooking.  I have enjoyed this because it is a Altered Project and I haven't done many of them.  I have posted a picture below of what the project looks like.  Mine will of course be different since everyone has there own style but I am following her suppliy list the best I can.   

3)  I have been working on a card class deadline for a friend who is a Creative Memories Consultant.  I make her card classes for her and while it seems like an easy task, it is a mass-production process and when you are making 19 kits with 12 cards in each kit it is a project in and of its self.  I have posted some of the cards and pictures of the past two days of chaos.  If you would like to learn more about Creative Memories or order product you can find more information here.

4)  I have not been able to make a single card for myself for the past three weeks, and next weekend is the card swap at my local scrapbook store, so I will be making 6 Thanksgiving themed cards for that which I will post when I finish those.  But I think I will take tomorrow and make some cards from the kits I have recieved by Taylored Expressions.  I have 2 months of card kits and I better make some before my next kit comes on the 20th.  Check out her blog at here Taylored Expressions.

5)  I also made a Tote Bag last weekend.  It is large and roomy measuring 13x12x6.  If any one would like me to make them one please email me I am selling them for $30.00.  (Note I have only limited amounts of this fabric left.  So if you want one hurry!)

Thank you for listening to me ramble on and visiting my site. I have been busy but productive which is always a good thing.  Have a great rest of your weekend and see you sometime during the week .
