How “Crafting Forever” Became A Part of My Life + a Giveaway
My crafting began when I was young with simple coloring, until the day I drove my father crazy. See I was a mere 16 years old and grounded, I was beyond bored and began to drive my father crazy. I was such a nightmare that despite being grounded I was told to go to the craft store and “buy a hobby”. My budget was my imagination and desire, and I was nothing if not overwhelmed.
After about an hour I chose a paint-by-number and a latch-hook kit, which I did finish and with those seeds, the love of crafting was born. I have been addicted ever since, and I can not imagine my life without the crafts.
When I saw the stamp set Crafting Forever RubberStamp Set by Stampin’ Up I saw reminders of those first crafts that began the crafting fire inside of me.

Paper Pumpkin – Giftable Greetings – August 2017 Kit Review + Giveaway
I believe there is nothing more personal or sentimental than giving a person a handmade card. Not only is the person receiving a handmade card, but usually there is time and love behind each card that the recipient feels. A couple of times throughout the year I send cards and have always wanted to make a set for family.
The theme for the August 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit is called “Giftable Greetings” which is a set of cards and a cute box that you can gift someone with.
If there is one craft supply that is in abundance at my house, it is corks. I have family that only drink’s wine and the corks get saved for me. Since, Fall is upon us, and so I thought i would make a DIY Cork Pumpkin for my Fall decorating.
This was an easy, relaxing project that I know you will love!
Keep Love on the Schedule – Love Today Planner by Stampin’ Up Review + Giveaway
There are busy days ahead, there is no doubt – the school season has returned. With this new year comes appointments, meetings, carpools, assignments due and somehow finding time for you to breathe.
One of the biggest struggles is keeping all these dates and schedules straight. I have tried to make sticky notes in strategic places that I know I will see. These fall and inevitably end up doing nothing more than assisting me in forgetting the event. I have tried phone reminders but I end up “snoozing” those, and before I know it, I have snoozed through another event. There is one method that helps me keep events and dates in order – a nice planner. I am a simple gal and need a calendar, room to write events and places to put random pieces of paper.
A couple of years ago my favorite planner finally had met it’s fateful end while I was sad, I never anticipated that it would be so difficult to replace. Ever since I had that loss I have been on a search for an adequate replacement. When I saw the new Love Today Planner Kit by Stampin’ Up it was the closest thing to my beloved planner.
