Impractical Jokers Cruise 3 – Part One

 A Impractical Journey with The Tenderloins – Part One

The call came in the day before the 6 month anniversary of losing my father, it came from Atlanta, and it was notifying me that a space had opened on the 3rd Annual Impractical Jokers Cruise.

After my shock and utter excitement wore off I returned the call and learned the details I would need to officially book this unique opportunity. There was little to no hesitation as I was offered a mid-ship balcony room. I paid my balance, and the email came in that I was confirmed a passenger for the February sailing.

What the Impractical Jokers Cruise is the unique fusion of a 4 day cruise with the comedy troupe “The Tenderloins” who are also known as Tru Tv’s Impractical Jokers on the Norwegian Cruise Lines ship “The Pearl”.

Quilty Box: Classic Box Review – January 2019

Classic Quilty Box

January 2019

As a crafter, one of the crafts that is in my bag-of-tricks is sewing. I love the idea that I can take a flat piece of fabric and within a couple of hours, create something useful for human, k-9 or feline.

When I received the January 2019 Quilty Box I immediately had ideas on how to put the enclosed Tie One On-Fabric into my craft to-do pile. Continue reading

The Latest Finish – Yarn Cat – Diamond Painting

This post may have affiliate links but this in no way will influence the post to follow and all opinions are my own.

Being a cat person and a crafty person when I saw this adorable cat in a suitcase of yarn I knew it would be the perfect addition to my future craft room.

This past week I decided to take the couple hours left and complete this dragon, and I am so glad I did. This is a big diamond painting measuring in at a large 60cm by 45cm.

Now, as always, what color frame should I use?

The Latest Finish – Titanic – Diamond Painting

This post may have affiliate links but this in no way will influence the post to follow and all opinions are my own.
Ever since the movie Titanic came out I have been fascinated by the lore and history of this mighty “unsinkable” ship. When I saw this Titanic Diamond Painting I knew I had to create it.

This past week I decided to take the couple hours left and complete this project and I am so glad I did. This is a big diamond painting measuring in at a large 50 by 60 cm. The plan is to find a suitable frame and put where I watch movies, and read.

Now, as always, what color frame should I use?

Starting 2019 with “Intention and Execution”

2019: The Year of “INTENTION and EXECUTION”

 This post may have affiliate links but this in no way will influence the post to follow and all opinions are my own.

Another year has come and gone – granted my 2018 was NOTHING like I expected and ended like it began, quiet.

In previous years I have never really made “resolutions” when the new year comes. There are a couple reasons for this, one being I am never able to keep them going and by February, I have all but forgotten them.

Since so much has changed in my life – different house, taking over care of Meadow (the dog) and loosing my father, who was my best friend, I decided to make this year different.

I decided to choose a word that will define this coming year – Intention. Why did I chose this word of all the millions of words out there? The answer is actually quite simple – I always “intend” to do things such as crafts, travel, blogging, seeing friends and family but it never happens. My intention is there, with a lack of execution. In the back of my mind I wish to do these things but I just do not get there.

So, for 2019 I decided that INTENTION & EXECUTION would be the goal.

The bright spot has always been this site, while I took a break, I always knew I would return and I am happy to say that I am returning stronger, more motivated and with more excitement than ever.

I already have some really great partnerships lined up with some great companies, I have a couple really neat craft projects, and will continue to share my 5d paintings with you. I also will be attending the Natural Products Expo for the 4th year, and I may even be sharing some travel adventures with you as well as more personal posts about my life and the transitions that are ahead for me.

Completed 5d Project: Mythical Dragon

The Latest Finish – Mythical Dragon – Diamond Painting

This diamond painting was sent to me by Needleart World, and may have affiliate links but this in no way will influence the post to follow and all opinions are my own.

There is nothing about this Mythical Dragon that I do not like – the colors, the ball, the whole thing is just spectacular. I originally started this when I was watching Game of Thrones, and then my father got sick and while I was close to finishing, it just did not happen.

This past week I decided to take the couple hours left and complete this dragon, and I am so glad I did. This is a big diamond painting measuring in at a large 22.5 inches X 19. 25 inches. The plan is to find a suitable frame and put where I watch movies, it seems very mythical and movie like to me.

Now, as always, what color frame should I use?
