Catching up is so hard to do!

Greetings family and friends! 

It's been a while since my last visit, but some crafting has been going on, in my absence.  I don't want to bore you with the hectic details of my life, but I will say this...(in my Forest Gump voice)..."life is like a box of chocolates"...sweet, bitter and sometimes nutty!!  LOL.

Nonetheless,  here are some of the things I've been working on...







Graduation card for my god daughter, who's heading off to college!


T-shirts for Bridal Party - gifts from Maid of Honor




Working on my "blinging" skills.  I used a Converse key ring as a tester - realizing that the smaller surface requires smaller stones.  I have some 2mm stones on order!  LOL.  

Thanks for stopping by!

Spring is in the Air

Greetings Family, Friends & Followers,

I apologize for my absence and lack of posting here, but life is constantly happening.  Nonetheless, I thank you for your patience and prayers.  I completed a DT project for 613 Avenue Create; and I have been asked to make a set of 24 cards for the ministry, so I am working on those.  I recently made some favors for our Women's Fellowship - and the ladies loved them!  I thank my crafting sista, Cassie, for the project idea!

Thanks for stopping by and visiting my little piece of paradise.  Blog love is always welcome.  :-)

613 Avenue Create - Challenge #166

Good Morning Fellow Crafty People!

There's another challenge going on at 613 Avenue Create, and you're invited to join in on the fun! Every week, we host challenges as "Anything Goes", with optional twists; and Team B is hosting the challenge this week.  The optional twist this week is:  ALL THAT GLITTERS (User silver, gold, aluminum foil, or faux metal (silver or gold)!

Our sponsor this week is Aurora Wings, so please be sure to visit the shop and check out all of the wonderful stamps available.

I was tasked to do "Anything Goes", and I chose to use the Rose Fairy digi for my project.  I colored the image using Copic Markers (E000, E00, E04, E21, BG70, BG72, BG75) ; and the DP is from the BoBunny "Altitude" pack.

2016 - Number 1 Guy!

Hello,

I'm glad everyone made it through "Blizzard 2016"!!

It's been a couple of months since my last post, and I made a vow to myself (no one heard it, so they can't hold me to it - LOL) that I would craft more and post more projects on my blog.  Well.... I'm a work in progress.

Nonetheless, I am here now, so I'd like to share a card I made for my #1 guy for his birthday.  The image I used is "Lisa" from Pink Bow Ties - be sure to check out my friend Lameka's Etsy shop.  I told Lameka that I had to have this image - after all, we have the same name!!  LOL.  She was so much fun to color, too!  I have a few more to color, and use on some other fun projects that I will post here.

Thanks for stopping by; and as always, a little blog love is welcomed.  :-)

Playing Catch Up!

Greetings Friends and Faithful Followers,

Just popping in to shake the dust off of this blog!  Life has been happening, with no regard to my crafting passion!  LOL.

Nonetheless, I was able to squeeze out a few quick projects in between life events.







Thanks for looking.
Wishing you a safe and prosperous New Year!

Special Request

Greetings Family, Friends and Followers!

This post is coming to you from a person who is truly feeling grateful right now!  I had a life-changing experience last week that has made me realize the importance of being thankful for the little things.  Most of us on this journey called life sometimes take things for granted - breath in our bodies, activity in our limbs, soundness of mind,family, etc.  I'm grateful to be alive today, and to have a second chance at life!

Now, for the theme of this post... In the past, I've mentioned, in passing, that my mom did not seem to have a fond appreciation for my crafting/hand-made items.  Well, she actually asked me to make a sympathy card for her to give to one of her best friends, who's mother passed away.  The "twist" was to NOT use the word "sympathy" on or in the card!!!  This was a challenge; but I like the end result - and I hope you do, too.



The inside reads:
Those we love remain with us
For love itself lives on, And cherished memories never fade Because a loved one's gone. Those we love can never be More than a thought apart, For as long as there is memory, They'll live on in the heart.

Thanks for visiting!
