I know it's been awhile since you've seen me on here but I've decided it's time to make the jump to Facebook for my business.
Over time, I haven't seen a large response from readers on my blog and I've felt very lonely. I blame it on the way Blogger is seen in blog readers. Facebook is more fast paced and very easy to connect to readers. It's perfect for quick check-ins to keep you up-to-date and interested in what's going on, something that is hard to do for small blogs like mine.
So join me! I'd love the company!!

Here's a quick video I made introducing myself to potential new customers. Making this video is the first challenge in a series made to Convention attendees. What do you think???

It's finally April which means Spring has arrived! Right? Nope, not today! Woke up this morning to see 3" of snow fell overnight ... only days after tilling up my garden so I could plant it today!
My day has been all kinds of crazy because of it and I wasn't able to finish my project I had planned to share with you ... but the other consultants on the blog hop are better prepared than I am so keep hopping to see what that have to share with you!

I'm sad I used the last of it but I'm so glad I had some to use for these photos. My daughter got to meet her preschool teachers during the winter open house and she enjoyed playing with all the toys and puzzles in her classroom. Because the room doesn't have a window, they have it painted a very vibrant green and paired with her bright pink outfit (her choice by the way!) I knew these papers would have a punch! :)

Which is great for teaching my kids traditions and habits but it makes a boring scrapbook. And who wants a boring scrapbook??
So I started to document my everyday life moments. I take pictures constantly - for Facebook & Instagram - my every day life is being recorded but (until now) I didn't print those pictures.
This layout features a seemingly random assortment of photos but these are adorable, every day moments of the people that fill my days.

Did you ever rework a layout page after you finished with it? How did it turn out??

I am blessed that my sister and I were able to have our children so close in age. They are the best of friends!! When I go away for my weekend crops, I'm lucky that I can drop my kids off at my sister's house until my hubby comes home on Saturday and since they love it too, I'm guilt free for some Mommy-only time! :)

I'll continue my walk through next week, there are still lots of pages to share! I'm going to spend the weekend with my Close to My Heart team at a weekend retreat so I'll have even more to share! ;)

If you've come from Crystal's blog then you're on the right track. If you're starting here, just follow the links at each blog to "hop" along. If you get lost, visit Joyce's blog for a complete list.
Last year was a busy year for us. Within a few weeks of finishing a renovation on the new house we bought, we moved in and had two birthday parties and two Easter celebrations (ignoring the 2 snowstorms that also occurred during that time...).
This page documents my daughter's birthday party. Having just moved in we were crammed around too small furniture and folding tables and chairs but that's the problem with going to a bigger house - you're furniture is now too small! ;) But it was such a blessing to be able to celebrate with our family in ONE room!

But when I go away ... well, scrap happens! :)
Over the next few weeks, I will share with you some layouts I've done this past weekend. I still have another weekend coming up so I'll add them in too.
This past weekend is a wonderful time away at a local retreat center. The accommodations are lovely, the food is wonderful (I gained 4+ pounds this weekend!), and I never have to leave the building so I get to stay in super comfy clothes (read: workout clothes all weekend and no judging!!). I actually was all packed up when I realized I had not seen my sneakers in three days and had to go looking for them. Thankfully, the cleaning staff found them under the bed and returned them to the front desk for check out. My goal this weekend was to get from January through August of last year because that was as far as I had sorted my photos. And I actually accomplished it! I am so proud of myself! Even better, I love all the layouts I did! Usually there are a bunch I just throw together just because. Crafting all weekend can be draining and there are just hours where my brain refuses to work. This time however, I rarely had that feeling and was able to power through and get 70 pages done (about 35 two page layouts). Since about half of them need some sort of Cricut cut to finish them completely, I'll only share the completely finished ones now. I'll add the others in later.
First one up ...

I'll be back Wednesday with a new layout for the Joyful Stars Blog Hop.

If you've read my last post, you know I've been busy (neglecting my family), um, excuse me - crafting! :) I wanted to share with you some of the other projects I've made with my new Cricut Explore.
We moved last March after 4 months of renovating. The basement where the kids' playroom and my craft space was usable but the last to get organized. Around Thanksgiving, orders started arriving for custom cards and other gifts so I had to whip my space into shape fast! While it's still not perfect (I need to hire an electrician to add more lights and outlets) but it's usable for every craft I'm currently into.
I love that I can create while the kids play and I can still referee if need be. In fact, these two projects both happened while I had double my normal amount of kids around! :)
I made the pillow cases to fit some of our couch pillows I've gotten tired of looking at and then used HTV (heat transfer vinyl) to quickly embellish. My hubby had no luck hunting this year so the camo pillow was a joke - I wanted to help him visualize what he's supposed to see through his scope ... he took it well, after throwing the pillow at me! :)
Thanks for looking!

Welcome to the January Edition of the Joyful Stars Blog Hop! If you've arrived from Lori's blog then you're on the right track. If you're starting here, follow the link at the bottom of the post to hop over to the next post. Keep going till you come back to where you started. If you get lost, see Joyce's blog for a complete list of participants.
For Christmas, I finally wore my husband down and bought myself a new Cricut Explore "from him". :) Since it's arrival in my house, my kids have been neglected, dinners have been "leftovers" and the laundry is stacked in various piles around the house (I've lost track of what's clean or dirty, but whatever!)
I have been crafting up a storm! The ease of cutting and searching my images to find *just the right thing* is just divine! Even though I've had an Expression for what seems like eons, the finesse of the Explore is the creme de la creme of home crafting!
I'm learning to use the software to plan out my scrapbook pages, letting the machine do it's thing and relax in front of the tv catching up on my favorite shows while I assemble my cuts - it's everything I've ever wanted!!!
Of course, as I went searching for something to share with you tonight, I couldn't find just the right piece - I wanted something out of the new Seasonal Expressions to share with you and it seems like the perfect time to share with you the Charlotte Workshop Your Way PML layouts. Have you seen this new line of papercrafting!?!? It's awesome! This one kit includes instructions for 3 layouts, 6-9 cards (depending on the kit) and a PML layout!! It's the one perfect kit for every crafter! My sister consultants and I traveled to Philadelphia last month for some training from the Home Office on this new item and It. Was. Awesome!! I loved hearing first hand how the kit evolved from the WOTG and why they were adding this new line to better meet the needs of customers (and consultants too).
The Charolotte WYW kit is so adorable! I'm not a girly-girl but I love the mix of neutrals with the pop of Sorbet ... I can easily mix photos of both of my kids on one layout with this paper pack and the doodles are so on trend my heart is fluttering! :)
Anyway, by now you're even wondering if I'm going to show you anything ... your wait is over! ;)
