I decided to join in on the fun and respond to Jill Norwood's challenge to curate Christmas.  This is what I came up with.  I dedicated my back craft table as a permanment space for Christmas crafting. I absolutely love having a space where most of my Christmas embellishments are right at my finger tips when I am in the mood to make a card or some other Christmas project.  My goal is to participate in the weekly challenges that are posted on the Merry Monday blog.  Feel free to take a peek and leave a comment if you like.  Below you will find the link to Jill's Curate Christmas challenge.  I hope you are inspired to join in or just get your items ready for some holiday crafting.  Thanks for stopping by my blog today.  Here is the link to Jill's video:

Shabby Pink Christmas kits!!!

I was in the mood for Christmas, so today I decided to post my shabby pink Christmas kits.  I am starting to see Christmas projects pop up here and there, so I figured I wasn't the only one in the mood to craft Christmas.  I hope you like it and if you are interested in purchasing, go to my Etsy shop listed in the sidebar to the right.  Thanks for stopping by!!

I was commissioned by a friend to make a Paris themed card. This is what I created. I even got to use one of my embellished bicycles.

Happy Friday everyone!  Well, it finally rained here in Southern California.  So, I am going to take advantage of this weather and just stay around the house and catch up on projects.  I feel like I haven't posted in  awhile, so I wanted to share this shabby chic birthday card that I made for a dear friend.  I used the Primrose paper collection by DCWV and added lots of shabby embellishments.  I love how fun and shabby it looks.  Celebrate this day and those to come and do something that makes you happy.  Have a great day!!

"Thank you!"

Just wanted to share this adorable shabby thank you card that I made a few days ago using some downloadable paper.
I really wish that I could send everyone a card that has supported my crafting journey in some way.  Thanks to everyone that has visited my blog, stopped by to say hello on Facebook, shopped my Etsy store and even took the time to watch my YT videos.  I really do appreciate each and every one of you and I just want to say "thanks for being you!" Have a blessed day and find joy in all that you do!!!!

"Time for Tea!"

Hi everyone!  It has been awhile since I posted on my blog.  I have been extremely busy like so many and have had just enough time to keep up with my store and craft a bit.  So to kick my blog post back in gear, I decided to join this week's challenge over at "The Shabby Tea room".  
The theme for this week is "Warm and Cozy".  Participants are asked to use whites, creams, teapots or teacups in their design.    As I made this card, I realized that I didn't have many stamp sets with teacups or teapots.  Actually I only had one set, so I had to make it work somehow.  I really like the look of this card.  I don't think I have ever made a card with just creams and whites.  I was really tempted to add some pink, but decided to stick with the theme all the way through.  So, here is my card and I am looking forward to joining more blog challenges this year.

Good morning everyone!  Just wanted to send some happy thoughts your way.  I love the sweet look of this card and I thought you might too.  I used the Greeting Farm Holiday Anya 3 stamp and colored her with my Copic markers.  I embellished my card with buttons and a little bit of the pink fringe trim from my Etsy shop.  I even used a llittle sparkly fluff on her muff.  I hope you  all have a beautiful day and keep your thoughts happy and positive.  That is what I am planning on doing.  It's the best way to be.  All smiles!!
