Still Plugging Away
Ok, that was interesting. With the update to the layout I had to figure out how to add to my blog. Thanks to the online chat option, I was able to get it figured out with the online help staff.
I realized that it has been a long time since I made a blog post. I have been busy doing a lot and sometimes a whole lot of nothing. I had hand surgery in April 2021 and got the all clear from my hand surgeon today. Yay!
Still working and very thankful to have a job. I will be there 25 years in May. Time sure has flown by.
I have three grandkids now, with the oldest turning 7 next month.
Life is keeping me busy and I am thankful for that. I am also blessed to have such a supportive husband.
I am currently working on organizing my stamps and dies. Combining two methods from two of my favorite YouTube video makers @jenofevedesigns and @TimHoltz. I combined jenofevedesigns book method and Tim Holtz's stamp storage and made my own that works for me. Using laminating sheets, card stock, copy paper, ink pad and laminating machine. I have so much more space in my crafty room I am loving it. I will post some pictures soon.
Thank you for visiting and taking the time out of your day to read my blog.

Heartfelt Creations, What can I say about them except that their products are fantastic! I love them so much I became a Platinum member.
I just can't get enough of their products. They have stamp sets and dies that work with their paper pads. The die cuts can even cut out some of the items from the paper pads, so that you do not even have to color them. All you have to do is cut them out.
I made this card for my daughter for her 29th birthday. I used the classic rose stamp set, die cuts, and paper.

I don't know about you, but I really need to get started on making my Christmas cards. I have already completed step one. Which is to make a list of who you want to send them to.
I have an idea of how I am going to make them, it's just a matter of stamping the trees and then coloring them. I want to try a new method I learned this year in a workshop at 'The Cat's Meow' in Oakhurst, California. They offer some awesome classes there. I also bought a cool product that should make my trees look like they have snow on them. I still have to play around with it a little more before I use it on my cards. I will post a picture of my 2015 Christmas card when I get one done.
Projects are taking longer to do these days, but I am working through it. Taking my time and taking numerous breaks to rest my hands.
Take care everyone.

Hello Internet World,
Happy November! Happy Birthday to everyone who celebrates a birthday this month.
It is getting close to the Thanksgiving holiday already. Where did this year go. I have been trying to do a project a month, but with school and work taking up most of my time, it's been difficult this year. I was able to get quite a bit done this summer, but not as much as I would have liked to. Sometimes there is just not enough time to get everything done.
I will get pictures posted soon of the projects I completed this summer.
I am currently working on some new things and will get them posted once they are completed.
Thank you for visiting.

Good Morning Crafty World,
I just wanted to wish everyone a wonderful Monday. It's nice to have a morning where I don't feel rushed to get to work. I actually woke up on time. :)
I am waiting for some fireline to arrive in the mail so that I can finish a project. I am really hoping that it arrives today.
I have finished a few projects and will be posting them soon.
I will also post the picture of my current project once it's complete. It has a butterfly theme. It's going to be cute I think.
Well, time to start my day.
Have a wonderful Monday, and happy crafting!

Hello Fellow Crafters,
It's time for me to start seriously cleaning house. I am in the process of preparing some items for sale. I will be posting them this coming weekend. There will be some jewelry, various craft kits, plastic canvas whole sheets and cut into strips in various colors. There will also be some beads, homemade cards. Who knows what else I may find. I may even cut up some more of my scraps to make blocks for quilting.
You'll just have to come back and take a look.
As always, I thank you for visiting and hope you come back for another visit.
Take care and Happy Crafting!

Project #2, completed 7/26/11
I have finished kit #2 called Seaside Ensemble. I hope you like it. It was fun and really easy to make.
I'm not sure about the hook on the necklace. I haven't used them before. We'll see how it goes. I may have to redo the necklace with a type of latch.
This is the latch that came in the kit. If I redo it, I will post an updated picture.
Let me know what you think.
I am currently working on Project #3 of ?. Hope to have it done before school starts again on the 15th.
Thank you looking and happy beading.
