Retail therapy.

It’s Sabbath Sunday! Today’s the day to take to rest and re-charge. Since it is Father’s Day it is hubby’s choice on what to do. So it looks like we are driving down the hill to do a little bit of shopping (new flip flops for him) and enjoy a pastrami sandwich at Sherman’s Deli.

Do you have plans today?

Happy Crafting!

Sharing with a friend.

It’s Sale Saturday! So I have to ask…what’s your favorite new product, embellishment, or color in the new catalog? Mine has to be the Pretty Peacock color. There are so many things I love but if I had to pick I love that new deep bluish green color.

If you don’t have your catalog by now please tell me and I will get you your copy!

And, by now, you are probably wondering where the sale is with all of this. Here it is. If you find a friend, co-worker, anyone that wants a catalog that I have not contacted please tell me. For every friend that I get a catalog to you will get a voucher for FREE shipping on one order good until the end of July. So if you refer three friends that I get a catalog to you will get three vouchers.

Happy Crafting!

Sometimes the dog is the one who understands the best.

It’s Friendship Friday! This is the day to give back or pay it forward.

The school year has ended and I know that I have some teachers and parents reading this. I know that you are probably breathing a sigh of relief, at least for a minute, that the routine of homework and hurried dinners is no longer. And with this week being the final week I am sure some of you feel that you have earned every drop of this break.

I know exactly how you feel. It’s been a little crazy here as well. And sometimes I don’t have words and don’t want to deal with one more thing. This is when I look at my beloved, mostly black, standard poodle named Shadow. He stares back at me and he knows. He gets up and sits down at my feet with his head in my lap. He knows I need a minute to stop, breathe, and run my fingers through his curly hair. Do you have a pet that brings everything back into focus for you? Share a picture or comment with me.

Creating with the new washi tape.

It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today I am playing with some brand new product from the Pressed Petals Suite. The new washi tape with petals to go is awesome! So easy to use and if they are not stuck on straight the petals can be repositioned. Here’s the video on how to create a couple of cards from the new washi tape. Check it out…https://youtu.be/IGwG15kp8Ew.

Dimensionals as a square.

It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended! Have you put your stamps on a block and not been able to get them straight? Then use a square. I will often have a pack of dimensionals on my crafting desk. Grab them and use it for a straight line.

Using negative space.

It’s Technique Tuesday! Today is the day I want you to think about using negative space. Negative space is when you cut something away and not keep adding more layers.

This particular card doesn’t use negative space. So instead of cutting out the tree you could simply cut the tree shape out of the silver foil. This wouldn’t add more weight or thickness to the card.

Sleep is a good thing.

It’s Sabbath Sunday! Today is the day to rest and re-charge. Usually I have some ideas on what to do to break out of your routine but not today. Some days you just have to rest. It’s the end of school, just finished Tara’s (my daughter) birthday, and still getting my new project organized. I don’t know about you but I am worn out.

So today is a good day to grab a movie and do some couch surfing. What is your favorite movie to watch between naps? Mine is Big Fat Greek Wedding. It reminds me of my Grama’s home.

It’s where you look.

It’s Friendship Friday! This is the day to focus on giving back or paying it forward. Do you ever wake up and just don’t feel it? The sun is up and the birds are still chirping but you just don’t feel chipper. It’s all about perspective.

I would encourage you to change how you look at things if everything seems negative or dull. It might be you.

I am writing this because this week has been a tough one for me. There’s been lots to do and not a ton of time to do it in. Remember that most of life is how you look at it.

Happy Crafting!
