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!

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!!)

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!

Last day of the convention

 Happy Saturday everyone!  Today will be the last day of the convention so I will be getting up and going early.  If you get there by 8am (I KNOW....) but if you get there super early you a ticket to enter in to wonderful special drawings, it's totally worth it as many people don't.  One of these days, I have a good feeling.  Last year I did win a drawing, not during the grand prize saturday morning, but during the regular convention.  it was a wonderful gift certificate to booth that sells amazing brads and bling.  WOO HOO.

I hope the classes are as wonderful as they were last year (can you believe one of the classes is about COFFEE???) and I just love looking at all the amazing samples.  The tables have wonderful "Make and takes" where you can sit down and use the manufacturer's products to create a project. (sometimes for a fee, sometime free)

 Day 1 of the convention, but there's only one event, the evening registration and card making fest.  We will be going for something like 7 hours lol, though I usually don't make it that long.  I often work ahead or do things other than what the kits were for (for example, if they were scrapbook pages, I will make cards instead of scrapbook pages).  I often finish early and then go back to my hotel, i mean, I gotta get up super early for tomorrow's event lol!  Here's a card I made during last year's convention

Thick and Thin

Aren't we all glad it is Saturday?  Just curious for all my dear friends overseas....I notice this when I am in Turkiye for example, but most of my friends there don't get off work on Saturday (just the teachers and gov't workers).  Most people that I know from Turkiye work 6 days a week.  Is that true in your country?

Just be you

 Well, i really wish spring break had been next week, so that it would have corresponded with the convention.  Instead I have to take time off to go to the convention.  I wasn't too thrilled about using my days off, but I am pretty excited to go to the convention next week.  Are you ready to see all the projects that i make?  I really need to have some NON-LACE time to sit down and craft a bunch of wonderful cards.  I feel like I don't get that much time anymore.

Ahhh, first day of spring break

Today is an important day at the doctor.  Your prayers and thoughts and good vibes are appreciated.

Hello Sunshine

WOW, can you believe we are in the first week of March?  Today is March 5th, not that i am counting, HA HA, but it's THREE days to Spring Break, 15 days to the Scrapbook Expo in Irving Texas, and just 79 days to Turkiye.  WOW.  I get more excited everyday.

Sorry I didn't get any packages out yesterday.  I had BOTH a doctor appointment and a dentist appointment on the same day.  SIGH.  hopefully they will go out tomorrow

Check out my wonderful Etsy store.   I sell precut lace in wonderful packs so you get 20 or 40 pieces all different in a wide array of colors, beautiful embellishments, or Lace Menagerie which is 6 yard assortments!  You can find the store here: https://laceplacebyholley.etsy.com
