Crafty Sunday

Sunday's service was very eye opening.  My husband John and I had a nice shopping day after church, then we came home and fixed a few things at the house.  John decided to go on a bike ride.  As he says, just a short one...40 miles! 😳  While John was gone, I decided to finish up my cards.  I made three similar cards for my Wine and Dine girls, so they could start off their 2017, crafting! ☺️ I included a special little something for each of them.  I do miss my crafty girls, so much! 😔  I also made my Mami a card for her 85th Birthday! ❤️  I was so saddened that I could not be there, as I always set something up for her birthday, but my family did a great job in hosting a celebration for her at Mr. An's in Tucson. 🤗

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Starting off 2017 With Crafting!

Happy 2017!

My first day of crafting was January 1! What a great way to start off the new year! 🤗  My goal is to craft at least a few days a week.  I need to make all of my thank you cards and also work on my husband's thank you cards for his El Tour donors.

I created a couple of thank you cards for my husband, as we were gifted some wonderful items!  I also had an opportunity to bake a cake for his staff, although I had a bit of a faux pas as I tried to make my own whipped crime frosting using gelatin...it was a little lumpy! 😒  Nonetheless the rest was yummy!  LOL!

I'm sharing a couple of pics of my cards, my gifts and my cake.  Enjoy! ❤️

UPDATED: Creating More Cards...

Hi!

UPDATE:  Since my BFF Mary received her card today, it is joining this Blog Post! ☺️  She loves animal print, and since she gifted me with some card making essentials, I used them...on her card! 😁 LOL!

I have somehow mustered up energy to create some cards! 😄  One I can't post until she gets it! 😉  These little simple ones I'll post right here!  I have some silly videos of my husband, who keeps me entertained!  I don't know if I can't post those, but I'll try! ☺️  Nonetheless, the group one are ones I made for a friend in Minnesota.  She couldn't find cards for her sisters, and a couple of other people, so I made her some specialized cards.  She loved them, so I guess I will too! The moon is for my "little" brother Javier.  I always forget his birthday because it is so close to Christmas!

I hope you all are having a great start to your holidays!  I am working slowly, but surely!  LOL!

Have a Blessed Day! 😘

A New Side Kick & Some Card Making...& Cookies!

So today I was able to get the LAST Side Kick at JoAnne's in Denton, TX, for $39.99!  I called all the stores close to me, and they were all out! The Denton store said they had one, but they were holding it for a customer.  I called them back and asked to be put on a list should the customer not pick it up.  I said a few prayers and within five minutes I get a call! The Side Kick never had a name on it, and if I wanted it, it was mine!  Thank you Lord! 😊

I even sent them cookies for holding it for me!  LOL!   It was the least I could do!  Nonetheless, I was able to use it today, as I finished making cards.  I am a happy crafter!

Here are some pics.  Enjoy your Tuesday! Happy Crafting!! ❤️

Happy Thursday All!

Today I plan to make more cards and be creative in some fashion, as the TV is a huge distraction!  LOL!

I made one card yesterday, very simple.  I need to make a few cards for a friend, and hopefully send them out by Saturday.

I have also been busy baking, as I love to bake! ☺️  My husband's employees love me!  LOL!

I hope you are all crafting away!  Have a great time doing everything!

Peace!

THIS JUST BLOWS!!! :'( Kharmyn - 0, Sidewalk - 1

Plans, plans and planning!  These were all planned to go awry! I had plans to finish some cards and send out some RAK packs to people, (as I received some wonderful cut outs from a friend in NV - see pic)...I had plans to vacuum and dust the entire house...I had plans to delight my husband with wonderful near gourmet meals, and BOOM!  It rains in Dallas and I slip and fall, fracturing my patella (knee cap)!  WTH!?!?!  Oh Lord what next?  Did He need to slow me down to spend more time with Him?  Probably, because that is what I have been doing!  :) These next couple of weeks will seem long, but a leg brace for two weeks is better than surgery and six weeks of recovery! (See what I just did there?  I bought the blessing! ☺️  Besides, my hubby is waiting on me, hand and knee!  LOL! )

God has shown me the silver lining, the blessing in all of this, as you will...He said to me that my fracture is linear, which does not require surgery, just some time in a leg brace.  Well thank you Lord, I see it!  Count your blessings no matter how small!  Seek out that silver lining!  It is not you talking yourself into accepting it, it is God telling you to trust Him!  He's got this!

So, as you see, no plans are perfect, except His, and if He has to derail you to get you to slow down, then so be it!

You all have a blessed Saturday, yes, it's Saturday, November 12, 2016!  Enjoy it! ☺️💕  LIFE IS GOOD!  GOD IS GOOD! ❤️

Not Just Crafting...

So, besides crafting while not working, I have been cooking and baking!  My new stove must be of a better quality, as I was able to make tortillas! 😁

Of course, the best part of it is the first one, hot off the comal (cast iron griddle)! 👍🏽,

Have a great start to your November, and remember to say RABBIT! RABBIT! at the beginning of each new month (so my cousins advised me!  LOL! )
