March 2014

Made some earrings today...


Pretty excited how they turned out. I even made the little felt envelope with a die from The Cat's Pajamas. Woot, woot! 

Here is the envelope closed with the earrings inside...


How great is that? Turned out to be the perfect size. YEAH!

Tomorrow I plan on stamping & getting caught up on some cards (or at least I hope to). My shoulder has been giving me some trouble so I don't know how productive I will be. This is the reason for my absence over the last week. :( 

Anywho, hope to see you all tomorrow. Enjoy the earrings!



Move over Molly...

We only have sitting room for 5 between the couch & 2 chairs in the living room. Since we have 4 dogs & there are 2 of us, some dogs need to buddy up...


Molly +


Gracie = 


tight sleeping spaces! LOL

I just had to share. And yes, the leather chair is a complete disaster because we let our dogs get on our furniture. I am okay with that. They are happy, we are happy, that is all that matters. Right? RIGHT!

Enjoy your Sunday, I know we are! :)



Flyin' High!


Guess I'm not flying so high tonight! :)

I had big plans to come home & get some stuff done but the minute I walked in the house? Exhausted. What's up with that? I was soooo looking forward to getting my weekend started. I had a take charge attitude & now? Now I feel like crawling in bed with my sweet little puppy & snoozing. Heck, if I go to bed now maybe I can get to sleep before Robert comes to bed & then I won't have to listen to his snoring!!! LOL

That's it, I'm gonna succumb to the sleepiness. I will catch up with all of you later. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Bring on the cake!


As much as I like this card, I now realize, it could have been so much better. If only I had made it AFTER my Copic classes! My shading & coloring would have been better, there would have been more contrast...I could go on... but as Sherrie said..."we learn from our mistakes." Why yes, yes we do. :)

Maybe I will have to perform another card overhaul & use this card as my base project???? Hmmm...

In other news, it's Thursday so you know what that means, right? TOMORROW IS FRIDAY!!! I am looking forward to the weekend and getting some stamping done. Or at least getting something crafty done. 

Hope you all have a fantastic day tomorrow!

Thanks for stopping by!

Sometimes just saying DUDE says it all. I desperately need some guy birthday cards. Was this easy or what? I let the DP do all the work for me. 


Shoot, I even did a little embossing. Hard to believe I remember how to do that! LOLOLOL

I honestly think this card took me less than 10 minutes to make. What took so long was "finding" my embossing gun & clear embossing powder. C'mon, don't tell me you don't know what that is like. I know you are a hoarder just like me  & have to search through drawers to find "stuff." LOL

Okay, I am going to sneak off & finish a challenge card that I have half way finished. I will see you all later!

Just sitting here...


thinking how tired I am. Robert already took off for bed & I am still sitting in the living room. What's up with that? And how did it get past 8pm already? Sheesh. I walk in the door, eat a little dinner & then it's time to hit the sack. Anyone else experience that? Rapid passing of time? Or is it just my age? LOL

This is random but is anyone out there addicted to "The Blacklist" as I am? I am obsessed. OBSESSED. James Spader is FANTASTIC in this show. LOVE IT! If you haven't watched it yet...YOU NEED TO!! 

That's about it for tonight. Have a happy!

I wish I was there...

or not, or maybe... LOL


I was using up my scraps from this past week & it hit me... I used wayyyyyyyy too much red over the past week. I get carried away sometimes. Can you tell? LOL


I am going to call it early tonight as I have had a terrible kink in my shoulder for the past couple of days. I think I am going to try a heating pad on it & see if that helps. 

Hope you had a fun Monday! See y'all later!
