Look at What I got!

I am so excited! Steve and I went to Costco's this weekend and he bought me this! A Vitamix 6300. OH MY GOSH! we went nuts buying all kinds of fruits and vegetables the cart was overflowing and I had to rearrange the fridge. LOL I'm going to make my first visit to our Jungle Jim's here in East Gate tonight to pick up on a few things that Kroger's just doesn't carry. And of course drop by my local craft and hobby stores to see what's on sale.
My goal is to try and get Steve to eat more fruits and veggies. I already do a pretty good job at getting my veggies and fruits in, but can obviously do much better.  We made our first smoothie before church yesterday and it really was good and filling. Then for lunch I made a Torillia Soup that was really good and was even hot right out of the Vitamix. If any of you have any good recipes out there please send them my way! This is not going to become an "eating blog" I can promise you that! I just wanted to share my blessing with you!

Stamping and Scrapbooking

Another mixed media style scrapbook page. I used Gelatos, stamps and dies from Stampin up, chipboard embellishments from Basic Grey and letter stickers from Michaels. I'm almost caught up with scrapbooking. Yippee!
This is going to be a busy week for me, I've got lots of projects I need to finish up, several videos to edit, play with my new Vitamix and a workshop on Friday. Oh yeah work 40 hrs at the hospital and two basketball games to go to on Saturday. Thank God for Sunday, a day of praise and worship and REST… Have a great day!

If You Believe You can You will

I thought I would share one of my recent completed scrapbook pages. I used a stencil from Balzer Designs, spray ink by Dylusions, Stampin Up butterfly stamps and punch and of course the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set. I loved how this turned out. Hope you're having a blessed day!

Saturday, January 25, 2014

See ya Later

Thought you'd like to see this..  Sorry about all the shadows… this was before I got my new lighting. Promise once I get all the bugs worked out the videos quality will be much better. Hope you enjoy!

Quick Thank You

Here is a close up of a card I showed in an earlier video. I used the Gorgeous Grunge, yellow chevron ribbon and Lots' of Thanks stamp set. I love quick and easy cards don't you? Oh yeah! I forgot I also used the new banner dies. I really like those!
 If you would like to order these just click the link below, my Stampin Up website. 
 Thanks and have a great day!

Working in the Mixed Media Studio

I spent a lot of time at the hospital this past weekend with a friend
and my son. Of course, I had to visit the gift store and there was an adorable canvas of a dog. I had a canvas on my workbench for weeks and just couldn't come up with anything. Well…. I decided to make an "Odie" canvas. My awesome black lab. This is stage one.. I had already prepared the background with lots of layers of paints, papers, stamping and then I cut his shape out using printed card stock. This if stage two.

Stage three, I wasn't happy with making him grey since he is black. so I just kept adding more black, white and grey until I got to the final stage.

This is the final product and I LOVE IT!!! Steve said he loved it too and wants to hang it in his office. I wanted to hang it in the living room LOL Hope you enjoyed seeing what I do in the mixed media studio. Have a great day!

The number for that is 133519 when that sale begins!
Hope you are all having a warm day!

More Valentine's Day Ideas

Hello Friend

I'm watching football and scrapbooking today, trying to catch up on my Project Life Book from last year and start the new one for this year. I don't do a page a day, week, month like many do. I will do a page or two of something Steve and I did or maybe a day with the grandkids. I've made our "bucket list 2014" which is going to be my theme for this years PL. Just to let you know one of the things on there is riding a segway on a tour of Cincinnati, my Christmas gift to Steve this year. Well, gotta get busy setting things up for the next video. Let me know if you like the new angle of the videos and if there is anything you would like to see. I'm always happy to do my best to share with all of you. Have a great day!

Saturday, January 4, 2014

Bring on the Cake

Steve and I are working on setting up a new filming area. This was the first one and after it was all said and done it's not zoomed in close enough. The important part is you get to see some of the new stamps that Stampin Up is now offering. Hope you'll stick in there with us while we get it all set up. Have a great day!

Scraps and a Punch 1

Here is the card from an earlier video. I wanted to give you a close up of the card.

Wednesday, January 1, 2014


These are the front two pages of my "2014 Word" journal. Ali Edwards has done this for years and I decided to give it a whirl this year. 
I chose "destiny" as my word, because I know God has a plan for my life and He knows my destiny and is not surprised unlike me.
So, for 2014, I'm going to journey through in search of my destiny, trusting in GOD all the way.
I printed off the "Genuine Joy" from another blog (Homegrownhospitality) and borrowed her spiritual insight to create my page.Thanks Stephanie!!!
The "New Year's Day" was cut out using my Cricut, stamps are Stampin Up and Stamper's Anonymous, masks and sprays are Dylusings and of course a little wash tape here and there. I love doing my mixed media stuff. I have a big canvas in the Mixed Media studio I'm working on. The plan is to put the word "Destiny" as the focal part. We will see if that all comes together. I'll share when it's completed. Have a blessed day and 2014!

p.s. I'll share a picture of the old filming area and then the new one once Steve and I get the new camera and microphone all figured out I'm so excited!!!

You make me Happy!

This a close up from another one of my videos. I love the banner dies! I am really trying hard to get rid of all that bling!!! can you tell? LOL
