1st Day of School

So, I'm late with this one!! LOL! Here's my little one all dressed and ready for her first day of Pre-K. She was so excited!! I'm not sure how long that will last, but I'll take the happy face for now. Looking at this picture, I just can't believe how much she's grown. It seems just like yesterday that I brought her home from the hospital...sniff...sniff.

New Stuff and More Coming Soon!

So, I've been working on a few new things!! :) I've added new butterfly, glitter, and Jumbo chipboard buttons to my Etsy world. I think my favorite would have to be the butterflies even though the glitter runs a close second. I guess my next thing will be to add glitter to the butterflies!! LOL!

Tomorrow, my daughter is going to play over to my friend's house to play with her best friend. In the meantime, my friend and I are going to get our craft on!! LOL!! I can't wait to show you what I'm working on. I'm taking my crafting to another level. HAHAHA!! I know...add something else to be addicted too huh?! Well, I'm off, but before I go......

Design Team Dare (August 10-16)

Come check us out over at ASF. I'm hosting the weekly dare!!
Ready for another Dare??
We're going to call this Dare...Dressin' Up!!

Well, I've been in the mood for creating my own embellishments lately, so I figured you could join in. The challenge this week will be to create a chipboard embellishment and dress it up to use on a page or card. It can be painted, glittered, stamped, etc. Whatever your heart's desire!! The possibilities are darn near endless. So get ready to get your creative groove on and make something AWESOME!! I can't wait to see what you come up with!!

Here's my creation:
Love Bug (using chipboard frame)

(This frame was hand cut and handpainted by me!! :)

Wow!! Thanks to everyone that gave their input. I love ALL of those color combinations so you'll probably see them soon! :) It was hard to pick just one, but I think my favorite combo is Cathy's which features...purple, green, yellow, & teal. I just love this collection of colors. Sooooo, Cathy, you'll win a set of 8 buttons featuring these colors AND...........guess what?? You also win a 50% off shopping spree in my Etsy shop at your convenience. All you have to do is send me an email with your address to and I'll give you all the details. Thanks again to everyone for playing along with me and stay tuned for more.

P.S. Justine, those glitter buttons are already in the works so be on the look out! :)

Now, I'll leave you with a few pictures. The first two are my newest additions in my Etsy shop. If you want an adorable little owl like the one featured on the first card, check out Regina's Etsy shop!!

So Excited!!

I am so excited and you wanna know why??? Well, my chipboard buttons have been selling really well. :) I've sold 9 sets this week!! Isn't that great?!! The fun part is that I really love making them and coming up with color combos for the sets that I have on Etsy. Now, speaking of color combos...I've got a proposition for you. Come up with a color combo that I haven't already done and post it here! The set will consist of 8 buttons so you need to pick 4 colors total. If I pick your combo, you'll receive that set free. Are you game??!!

Make sure you stop by tomorrow to see if you won. I'll pick a winner some time tomorrow night, so stay tuned!!

In the meantime, I'll leave you with some of my projects that I completed while I was on vacation. Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to post your colors.

**There is one catch: The combo that you pick can't be one I've already done, so visit my Etsy shop so you don't duplicate.** HAVE FUN!!

Halloween in August!!

I'm trying to get ready for that Spook-tacular holiday!! LOL! I know that everyone doesn't celebrate this holiday, but it was always fun for me as a kid. It was a day where Momma didn't mind us eating candy...and lots of it!!! It was also fun to pick out costumes, going to the festival, and trick or treating was a blast.

So, here's what I've been working on for my Etsy shop...

Boo Card!!
