Step it Up Saturday

Hi everyone; so glad to be back to the blog.  I went from flu to double ear infection and now deaf in one ear temporarily while they try to get swelling down.  Believe it or not no pain just pressure so I think I’m pretty lucky!

You Can Be Crafty!

Hello on this beautiful day!  I had several people who have asked how can I get started without spending a ton of money.  I took a good look of what I know I will need every time I get started with a project.  As you will see in the video that I put together there is two packages.  What I included will help you to start building your supplies and then you can add as you go.  I'm really looking forward to your thoughts and definitely crafting with you. https://youtu.be/yA0dx__y51A   The $50 kit I put together is approximately a ...

Hi everyone, as most of you are aware I was down with a yuck flu for the past week!  But yesterday I forced myself up and took a long hot shower so that I could make myself feel better.  It definitely worked.  I missed chatting with everyone, but I sure appreciate the messages and prayers that I received they absolutely were a blessing!

Join a Great Team

Have you thought about joining a team of crafters?  To earn extra monies for things or to just get discounts on high quality crafting supplies for your own creativity?  Or taking another direction in your career? Let me share the reason I joined.  I joined to find others to share my craft with.  Living in a small town coming from a large city where supplies were in abundance, crafting retreats and late night scraps were gone.  I’ve been a customer of Stampin’ Up! for many years, but just for my own hobby.  When I moved to T or C, NM, ...

Flu in New Mexico and a change to schedule.

So sorry it’s been awhile since I posted, preparing for my class last Sunday (which was awesome) and then by evening I felt something coming on and by morning down for the count.  Today is my first day being able to sit up, lots of steroids, shots and antibiotics and I will survive.  My goodness it just knocked me for a loop. So let’s update you with things so far.   Love Today Planner class was wonderful, by now all online class members have received their goodies and their private link for their video.  I hope you enjoy the video ...
