Makers Gonna Make

This card is too cute.  What's funny is that I have socks that say the exact same thing.  I got this paper from Echo Park as a 6x6" paper pad and used the technique from Stampilistic to create a set of cards.  What fun!

Keep Blooming

 Happy hump day!  I am glad to be halfway done with this week and more than halfway through this month! Here's a sweet card from Simple Stories today.  I thought it perfect for spring time, though it's almost starting to feel like summer around here....

Coffee card today

 Happy Tuesday everyone.  Thought I would share a card with one of my favorite topics today, COFFEE!!  You all know I love coffee as a topic, lol.  I took an awesome class at the convention to make coffee theme cards, it was from Brass and Bliss (a.k.a. Rubbernecker). We made coffee theme cards that were also gift card holders.   What fun. I look forward to sharing those with you later.

It says, "You can't make everyone happy, You are not coffee."  HA!

You're my Type

Woo Hoo, it's time for the weekend.  Happy Saturday everyone.  I am in the process of buying some gifts for my friends overseas now.  Any suggestions?  It's so hard to find things here in Texas that they don't already have.  For my overseas friends, what things would you like from the USA/Texas?  I need ideas of what to take to Turkiye

Good day!

 Happy Friday everyone!  I am so excited for this weekend. I am just about five weeks from my trip so I am really starting to make a list of things that I need to get done before I go.  I know it seems far away, but I really feel like I only have 10 days, (I.e. the weekend days), to get things done and ready.  What's the next big event that you are getting ready for?

Here's another card using the technique from Stampalistic that I learned at the convention for taking 12 sheets of 6x6 paper and creating 8 cards in 30 minutes.  What a fun class!

You're the Best!

I am sure everyone worldwide got to see photos of the Total Eclipse that happened yesterday.  What an amazing event that they say will not happen again for a very long time.  I am sharing this card today, some pretty flowers on a tiny mini card that I got a whole pack of for Christmas (Like 80 blank cards and envies).  TOO cute that I took many of them with me to the convention to make.

Here's what is happening today

Sky gazers and the general public will soon be able to enjoy one of the most fascinating astronomical events there is: a total solar eclipse.

Eclipse of the Sun in North America--The uniqueness of this event lies in the projection of a shadow on the Earth, which occurs thanks to the Moon covering the Sun for a few moments, causing a brief period of darkness during the day. During this period, the Sun’s outer atmosphere, known as the solar corona, becomes visible, showing a slight flare around Earth’s natural satellite.

Areas located in the center of the Moon’s shadow when it hits the Earth will experience a total eclipse. The phenomenon will only be visible within a narrow path on the Earth’s surface. The total solar eclipse can only be seen in North America.

Where i live in Austin, TX happens to be in the path of totality so I will see a full eclipse.  WOW.


Here's my card for the day, hmmm, wish I had some science themed cards to share....I mean, I did work for NASA....

Life is Beautiful

 Here's a sweet and simple card using beautiful papers from Echo Park and a technique I learned in a class during the last convention.  We were taught to make 8 cards using 12 papers from a 6x6 Pad of printed papers (from Echo Park, though I guess it could translate to other companies).  It was a fun class.  We completed the 8 cards in less than an hour.  I would say we should also be adding some bling or buttons (or LACE) on this card to give it a little pizzazz

Hello Spring

Since we are a few days into Spring, I thought it was time for a Spring card.  Here's a cutie from Simple Stories with a sweet bunny and everything.  Makes me think of Easter which just passed this weekend.  I hope you all had a wonderful time.  Next week will mark a total solar eclipse where I live.  I am in the path of totality which means we will see a TOTAL eclipse where I live. WOW, that should occur on April 8th.  What a once in a lifetime event.

Crafting is my Therapy

So here's a sweet and simple card that I did using fun papers from Echo Park.  I took a class during the convention that taught us to make 8 cards in 40 minutes using half a pack (12 sheets) of Echo Park pads.  How fun is that?  I loved the class.  I went back to my hotel (after buying some echo park 6x6 paper pads for $2 and made 48 cards!!)

Last day for student

I has a student leave this month.  She will be the first student that I have been with the entire year that she has been a student.  Awe. I have seen her grow all the way from 2 to 3.  That's the thing with the 2 year old class, they start with us, no matter when in the year they turn 2 and leave us no matter in the year when they turn 3.  Will miss her.  Here's my Thank You to her.  Gracias!
