So It's Friday

So it's Friday and I actually have the computer on.  I don't use the computer much these days, just my IPad anymore.  This time of year though I'm getting ready for NASCAR, yes I'm a fan!  I run a league and I'm getting all the teams input and ready to go.

I have also been in my craft studio a little bit, enough to make a huge mess again!!  I always seem to be looking for things that I know I have but can't find.  I did make my grandsons Valentine Day cards and got them mailed off to Michigan, even remembered to take a photo.

Here are the Valentine cards I made, one for Liam and one for Graisen.  I used red glitter paper, so there's a glare and I couldn't get a photo without it.



After I'm done cleaning up my mess yet again, I'm ready for St. Patrick's Day and Easter cards!  

I almost forgot, I did finish a project and got to use some of my faucet knobs!!  It looks better in person than it does in the photo.  Put it right next to the window that I just love!!  lol



So back to working on projects and cleaning up my messes which is never ending for me.  Love it when people post pictures of their mess, makes me feel better about the messes I make when I'm making cards and projects.

Have a great weekend and I'll be back soon!!

Happy New Year (A bit late)

Happy New Year ( A bit late) to everyone and hope you all had a very happy holiday season!  My holidays consisted of lots of cookie baking and family and it was wonderful. This new year hoping to be a better blogger, but didn't make any resolutions.  I always try to make time to blog, but never seem to find the time and don't want to blog unless I have photos of things I've done to post.  I did make Christmas cards this last Christmas and it was the first time I've actually gotten to make anything for what seems forever.  They turned out nice and I made cards for the boys that turned out cute.  This last week Fun Stampers Journey had their Lead With Heart leadership convention and I wasn't able to attend, but a lovely lady, Kerry, made a group and had all kinds of activities for those who also couldn't attend.  It was so much fun and I was even able to make a couple of the projects!!  Everything for the 4 days was Vegas related (that's where the Lead With Heart convention was).

So this year I'm planning on crafting weekly, finishing started projects and just have more crafting fun. The Fun Stampers Journey convention is the beginning of June and I hope I'll be able to go, but not likely.  Who knows, maybe I'll be able to save enough money, stranger things have happened!!  lol

Here are Anthony's (my son) favorite cookies.  You can't tell, but that's a large container and it takes me all day to make these.  I didn't buy 2 more cookie sheets this year, so now I have 4 and it makes things go faster.



This is the Christmas card I made for the boys.  I totally forgot to take a picture, so I had Sara take a picture for me!!



I totally forgot to take a picture of the Christmas cards I made, but I had a couple that I didn't finish.  So here's a half done card.  lol





Here are a couple projects that I did for the We're Not In Vegas challenges.





Well it's good to be back and hopefully I'll be back with another post this weekend!!  Have a great rest of the week.

Happy Friday!!

Happy Friday!!  This week had been a busy week and it's only going to get worse the closer we get to the holidays!  Can you believe that Thanksgiving is this coming Thursday???  Where has the time gone, it's moving just to fast for me.

I haven't had time to do much with FSJ lately, I've been messing around with my Silhouette machine making Christmas presents for family and friends.  I'm also testing the PixScan Mobile for IOS and it's pretty cool.  I've had this PixScan mat for a over a year and just opened it, so I'm happy to be on the testing team for IOS.

Still loving FunStampersJourney though, wish I had more hours in a day!  We're offering an awesome hobby/designer kit for only $49.99 and you won't want to miss out!!  Go and check it out and let me know if you have any questions!!  

Become part of my Amazing team!!



Hoping to be back sooner than a month, hopefully with photos of what I've been working on.  They are Christmas gifts, but I don't think that any of my family follows my blog.  lol

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Happy Halloween??

I know it's not quite Halloween, but I did make Halloween cards for the kids.  I keep wanting to be a better blogger, but time gets away from me way too fast.  As usual I have way too many projects going at once, but I have started on my Christmas cards too.  My Halloween cards are sitting on my craft desk addressed and ready to mail on Monday (they've been ready to go for a couple of weeks).  I do love Fun Stampers Journey, it's an amazing company and the stamps and everything else are so fun.

Here is the Halloween card I made, I make them all pretty much the same just use different color eyes.  I love that you can stamp the image and then cut the image with a coordinating die cut, beats having to hand cut!  I still need to work on my photography skills though. lol





And before it's too late, you can join my team the month of October for only $99.99 and you also get the new Amaze machine!!  This is an awesome opportunity with an amazing company.  October is coming to an end soon, so don't wait!!  Look at everything you get in your kit.

If you have questions just let me know, I'm more than happy to answer any questions you may have.

FSJ Birthday Cards

Happy Monday!  September is busy for me, especially this year.  We had an 80th birthday party for my mom, Liam turned 4 (can't believe he's 4 already) and my sister-in-law's birthday is tomorrow.  I didn't make my sister-in-law a card, I already had one that I bought for her a couple years ago that I couldn't resist getting for her.  I love Fun Stampers Journey's stamps and inks, they're awesome to work with.

Here are the cards that I made for my mom and Liam.

My mom's card, she's a quilter and so it's a sewing themed card.   This stamp set is Homemade Happiness, FSJ #SS-0354.  It's a great stamp set for anyone that sews. 



This is the card I made for Liam.  Need to find a tractor stamp though, hoping FSJ comes out with one soon!!  This is a darling stamp set, but it's a Bloom Benefit.  It's a set of 2 stamps, the image below plus OOPS, I did it again.  You can get the stamp set if you spend $50 and the die-cut that cuts out the image and the words if you spend another $50.  There are several Bloom Benefits that you can get with eligible orders of $50.  You can get Bloom Benefits for every $50 you spend!!  If your order is $100 you can get 2 Bloom Benefits, $150 order you can get 3 and so on.



I have more projects in the works, will post when I'm done.  Have a great week!!

OMG! Where Does The Time Go

I cant believe it's been over a month since my last post and I had such high hopes to be a better blogger!  Where does the time go, it always seems to get away from me.  I've been crafting, making cards and not one photo.  I made the boys St. Patrick's Day cards and Easter cards and didn't take any photos!  I've even been sewing lately, but it's a surprise what I'm making (you never know who reads my blog).  lol

All is well here, been through some medical issues with hubby lately, but everything turned out good in the end.  I have been trying to get crafty time in every day and it's kind of working out pretty good.  Even went with to the Sacramento Quilt, Craft & Sewing Festival on March 18th, it was so much fun.  I've been looking for an apron pattern and I found one there.  It's not exactly what I was looking for, but was good enough.  One of these days I will find the perfect pattern, I just know I will!!  lol

Hope you all had a very Happy Easter and I will be back soon, I promise!!
