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!

2016 - Number 1 Guy!


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!

Memorial Day crafting

 Greetings Family, Friends and Faithful Followers,

The summer is almost here; and you know that right before summer hits, Graduation Season comes in like a flood!! LOL.  Our family (and extended family), have a few graduations to celebrate; and I have been charged with making some graduation cards.  Now remember, in previous posts, I've said that I'm looking to be challenged to craft more this year?!!  I'm being challenged - and it's great!  The first card I completed was for our niece who graduated from high school (school colors were green/gold).  The image I used is from a wonder crafty sista-friend LaMeka, over at Pink Bow Ties - so please be sure to visit her site, browse, and purchase, if you see something you must have.

DP is from a DCWV Mega Stack; Flowers - Recollections (stash); Bling - Recollections (stash)
Dies - Spellbinders
Image was colored using Copic Markers:
E000, E00, E04, E21 (skin); E59, 57, 55 (hair); G12, 14, 17 (shirt & earring);
W09, 07, 05 (cap & gown); Y13 &15 (tassel)


This card was made for one of my bestest crafty sista - Cassie, who has been a true source of encouragement, inspiration and excellent sanity check (when I'm craft shopping)!  LOL.  She celebrated a milestone birthday over the weekend; and DH and I had the pleasure of being part of her (surprise) celebration.  Well, given that she is indeed a crafter, there was no way I could get away with a store-bought card for this particular milestone birthday.  So, I went through my supplies, and found her favorite colors (teal and brown, mostly)... and this card is the end-result!  I also made her a custom crafter's basket (turquoise/teal, of course) filled with a Spellbinders die that she wanted; an embossing folder with a Paris theme (for her to scrap her trip to Paris this summer); Copic Marker E04; trail mix (one of her favorite snacks); and some sprite her crafting beverage of choice - LOL)!  I had so much fun watching her take in all of the surprise party attendees, the decorations, and the personal touches of some TB photos... we're talking elementary school, ya'll!!  DH and I had a blast.

I'm grateful - no blessed - to have such a wonderful, uplifting, fun-loving, and talented friend in my life!  Tear, tear... smile... tear, tear... LOL.
