Challenge for bacraftygirl on youtube....use 4 stamps

This was definitely a challenge for me because I normally dont' stamp that much and I'm just getting into doing more of the mixed media on my scrapbook pages.  Although it's a little messy I really enjoyed this one because it was fun messing around with all my art supplies and it's given me more ideas when it comes to my projects so here it is...First day of school.

Just like Prima......without the cost

It would be nice to endorse Prima and be able to use their flowers all the time but with my stay at home mama income that is just absolutely impossible.  As much as I love Prima I cannot get their flowers in my budget very often so this is the alternative handmade flowers from lace trim.  Cost .50¢ for 5 yds of trim at my local thrift store.  FREE pearls beads from my grandma's old jewelry and baubles.  I get amazing flowers at an amazing discount and it's fun to make them exactly the way I want!

New Little girls Alligator purse mini album

Here is another listing I have up for sale on ebay.  It's a little girls alligator purse with handmade mini album for their besties.  What better way to have a little girl's special memories than to be able to carry it around with her in her own purse.  If you are interested check out the video of each page on youtube and then I shared the link to ebay.

Happy 10th Birthday altered crayon project...

Here are some photos of my daughters 10th birthday and her crayon art project that we made.  Take some old broken crayons, fill a metal or silicone mold (ours was a heart mold) and bake at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes and you have a fun party favor, we then created little notebooks with each of the kids names on it so they could take home to go along with their crayons.  Great fun at a great low price!  ENJOY!

Table setting

Thanks to our local amazing cake baker she rocked out this Little Miss Chatterbox cake.

Start with some old broken crayons

Any type of metal or silicone mold    ( I chose silicone because then it just pops right out) 400 degrees and 15 minutes later.........Voila!
Finished product...beautiful heart crayons!

It's a birthday day!!!

Today's my girls 10th birthday and so to celebrate we are getting ready for a blinged out girl party on Friday.  Here are a few goodies we are handling at our house including a little notebook I created from TGF stamps.  I also just found out that I won a $50 giveaway for scrapbooking products today so after all the projects I've been creating for other people lately I am happy to be able to restock some of my products, (even though truly I do not need for anything so I feel like a very lucky girl).  It's a good day of blessings!

Happy Valentines Day!!!

I know I know so cliche but I wanted to wish everyone a Happy Valentines Day.  I'm getting ready for my daughters 10th birthday, we are having a party here this week and I'm just so amazed and honored to be her mom, I cant' believe it's been 10 years, my how the time is fleeting.  I say it over and over I just cant' believe it, I thought she was just 10 months old...oh wait...she was...anyway.  My daughter and I celebrated with some friends last sat night and here are some special goodies I saw when I woke up today.  So enjoy the rest of your day, laugh hard, smile and hug your loved ones a little bit harder!  I love my hubby♥

This was a fine meal of lasagna and chocolate covered strawberries, oh yes and pepsi!    The girls had fun making it and there is my arm helping to stir.

♥  Here are flowers from the hubster ah yes he is so good to me!  ♥

Hope for a new week...

Tis been a sad week in our town some very tragic events have occurred and I'm hoping this is a stretch of a new week for hope and happiness. It would take too long to go into detail and frankly too sad, there have been deaths and sicknesses/illnesses.  Loss of family and loss of the respect of family.  You realize time is fleeting, too short and although part of me thinks it's too short to fight, it's also too short to waste your time trying to change people or change the wrongs that they may do to you.  Sometimes the best way to press on forward is to remove yourself from relationships that become toxic, it hurts, and you cry because even if they are toxic you feel you can at least deal with the toxicity so long as you can have the relationship but the truth is, if someone isn't adding joy to your life....they are taking away from it. 

My words of encouragement for this week I say to you is...take the time to evaluate your life and trust that the people you have in your path are good and caring, kind & sharing.  Take time for you, and most important know that you are all worth all the beauty in the world.  You should never let someone make you take second best, love with all your heart, feel pain for a moment and keep walking in the same direction not to turn back, but walk towards everyday and it's renewed promise of a hope for a better tomorrow.  ♥

It's not easy being green.....

No thank you, (Mister who interrupted me from my craft time) I do NOT want to buy meat from you in your traveling meat van. Yeah, not so much! (and it wasn't Schwans)
Today was a funny day I was crafting and really rocking out the projects and this man knocked on the door selling meat from a van painted with meat, we live in a small community so things like this dont' happen, but when they do its' creepy.  Anyhow here are a few of my latest fun projects and Hobby Lobby finds, a beautiful layout, a finial frame and a shabby chic chandelier lamp sconce.
