Day 3 - going strong

Wow - while I can normally sit down and create 2-3 albums a day lately I seem to be creating only 1 a day. But I guess the presurre of making one a day is keeping me focused and diligent. 

Not sure if you are into the new craze which is "Planners" oh my how fun it has been - I even have 2 of them. I write in them and organize my weeks all the while making them look amazing. I dont refer to them as I probably should but they sure do look pretty! Oh and the supplies available out there for said planners is ridiculous. Ok so Im totally off track. But you get the idea, right?

Ok so back to todays album - I created a small paper bag album that has that planner-ish style to it. I used the Archived line of papers by We R Memory Keepers and added a whole bunch of different embellishments to create this sweet motivational scrapbook just needs some photos added. 

Let me know what you think...

See lots of fun places for you to add your notes and moments of that days events.

I love it....Yeah for me for keeping up with this challenge. Seee you tomorrow.

23 day challenge

'In an effort to make sure I am crazy stocked for my upcoming craft show, I have been busily creating everyday. But I am also so easily distracted that I can start something and walk away and start on something else. I do eventually get things finished but I am determined to stay on track.

I am known for my mini scrapbooks and usually sell out of the, rather quickly, so it is in my best interest to STOCK up. In order to do that I have decided to challenge myself to make at least 1 or more scrapbooks a day. I mean 24 more on top of all the ones I have already would keep me very stocked up for my next show! Not a bad idea right? 

So here is my first album In this challenge; just finished tonight! 

I love how it came out! Please follow along as I get this challenge completed! 

Happy Crafting!

Hello FALL?

Living in Southern California it gets hot out here, like days of OVER 100' degrees hot, sometimes weeks at 90'+ so when September rolls around I hope for some cooler weather and if I am lucky I will get around 2-3 days of cooler morning and maybe hitting around 85' later in the day. And just when you think perhaps FALL weather is here sooner then later, the heat comes creepy back. UGH! This happens every year and every year I get suckered and reminded that "Hey you, you live in SOCAL remember?"
To be totally honest it doesn't get cooler until right around Halloween but I am already itching for it so much so that I have FALL & all the coolness included on my BRAIN - like this fun little paper bag album that I just finished...
Something about FALL just yells out coziness!

The darker nights the cool breezes...

The pumpkin and mulled cider scents
The fireplace blazing with burning wood

The changing of the leaves (not so much here in SoCal)

And all of it leading up to Thanksgiving and the family eating till we are stuft and rolling around on the couch, good times and so much to look forward to this FALL.
Anyway, here is wishing you all cooler weather and fun times to look forward to.
Happy Crafting.
I will be listing this in my ebay shop

May the force be with you

Not sure if you are as crazy excited about the new Star Wars Movie coming out in December. But I can hardly wait. I love all the Star Wars movies out so far and I think more than anything it just makes me nostalgic - you know being a kid again anticipating a movie and even more excited to share it with my kids.
 Although to be truthful the whole Darth Vader and Yoda thing is lost on them.
Even Target is getting in on the Star Wars fun.

I even decided to get crafty with the whole idea and made a fun chipboard scrapbook
How cool is this?

Used O-wires for the binding and some Star Wars papers I bought 2 years ago!!!

Gotta love me some YODA

It's not all about YODA but sure appears to be by the photos I have posted.
Even snuck a little bit of Washi Tape

Oh and then we can't forget about the beloved scrapbook page...
Love for the Storm Trooper
With a little bit of the new guys thrown in....

So yeah, feeling a little love for the whole Star Wars franchise.
Here's hoping you are getting some crafting done this week...
May the Crafting Force be with you all!
I will be listing this in my ETSY SHOP - in case you just have to have them {wink wink}

This time of year

I get to feeling seriously Claustrophobic like the walls of my house are closing in on me. Why? You maybe wondering (if you could careless imma tell you anyway��) I am busily preparing for my upcoming October show...I have been doing it every year for 4 years...I love doing it! But it's a lot of work. I mean I could do the easy thing and just keep making the same old stuff but I have the most amazing customers that keep visiting me year after year and well I want to give them something special and something really different each year so I go crazy a bit! 

So my living room is a disaster with all my junk putting the finishing touches on my goodies -here's some of what I have done so far...

I have Dia de Los muertos covered


And some miscellaneous pointed canvases....

As you can see as a crafter who has some ADD I have various projects going at once which has me pulling out so many different mediums to use on these projects and well eventually it all starts to pile up and then the panic sets in. 

So now I'm off to clean up my living room - happy crafting!!!
