Art Philosophy Day 2

I am in love with this cartridge so many things to make with it(over 700 images) completely worth the money!
I decided to try a fry box with some note cards

Here is the project

 I used close to my heart stamps to decorate the fry box and the cards, the fry box began looking like a handbag with that design so then I placed a tag with the initials to my blog "Creative Corner"
I hope you enjoyed the project be sure to come back tomorrow for Art Philosophy Day 3 Monday will be day 4
Happy Crafting

Wow where does the time go?

I have been super busy, Oh My goodness:)

My graduation finally came through yeah it is a long story but I am officially a Marshall Graduate YAHOOO!!!!

I am working hard to launch my new jewelry line on ETSY I have several pieces made and have broadened my horizons from last time I had a shop on ETSY! More details coming~

I am working hard at Close to My Heart trying to be the best Consultant I can be!

I have been working with Provo Craft being an in-store Demonstrator and loving it~ It is a dream job that is just fabulous I want to say Hello to all of my cricut Friends--You know who you are!!!!

Still working at my church as their secretary, that is such a rewarding job it is truly a blessing to be in that position!

Me and my mom was involved in a car accident over this past weekend thankfully we were not hurt just very sore, we were checked out and everything came back okay~ Can you say GOD IS GOOD YES HE SURE IS!!!!!! PRAISE THE LORD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now that I have officially graduated I am now consistently working towards my transcription degree(yeah I am crazy getting all of these degrees, I just love school I guess:))

Hopefully when It calms down I can get on here and post some pictures of jewelry, and my studio yeah I finally have it cleaned up and organized(almost) it has taken me a month to get it this way...CRAZY I know but I had just let it go and then did not know just where to start I was so overwhelmed but now it is just where I want it Clean~

A new adventure

Wow Have I been busy!!!!
Here is a little bit about what I have been up to
1-I finished school, I Graduated RBA(to add to my Medical Coding) with a minor in History,YAHOO!!!!!!!!
2-working towards my medical transcription degree
3-working at my church as a secretary
4-doing Cricut demo's at Michaels on Sunday's (But I def have to work on that during the week)
5-Scrapbooking trying to finish my Hawaii album before my summer vacation this year(it normally takes me 1 year to complete a vacation album)
6-working on Close to My heart workshops and classes
7-Doing some Major Spring Cleaning in my studio and room:) much needed LOL
8-Went to the Taste of Home cooking school--That was a lot of fun!
9-Getting ready for SUMMER-- planting outside
10-my new found passion well not really new just rediscovered... Jewelry making!!!

Yes on top of everything else I do I make Jewelry~ I am now thinking seriously about opening a shop on ETSY actually I had one a couple of years ago and it just got to be too much for me on top of everything else I had on my plate so I let it go:( but now I think I am ready to jump back in to the selling scene, the only thing is there is so many talented artisans on ETSY I don't know if I can compete but I think that is a risk I am willing to take~

I just need a fun hip name that if it were to become a successful Jewelry shop that the name would be perfect and would be recognizable~ I am having a hard time doing this as I just don't know what to name it, maybe it is hard because once you pick a name you can not change it (on ETSY) My dream is to be successful on ETSY and be able to do craft shows and fairs

I am making newer designs but some of my older designs will reappear in my new shop here are some examples (keep in mind this time around better pictures) and this is just a sample I have many more designs new and old designs~

Do you have any clue what I should name my shop? I have some ideas but nothing seems to be sticking I need something I can market with a logo and promotional items this business thing is hard stuff~

That is another thing if you have ever thought of opening up a shop on ETSY I would encourage you to do so but don't be like me (the first time) when you list items that does not mean they will magically sell, it is a lot of work and as much as I wanted to say it is just a hobby it was a real job to keep up with my shop~

Have a happy day

Fresno my baby

I was just recently in a room full of women, friends, fellow crafters, mothers, and we would talk about scrapbooking, shopping, our favorite place to eat, our professions, our other hobbies, but somehow we always got on the subject of their children!!! How sweet it was to hear them talk about their little ones, what they eat, what they do, how they sleep, what they look like, then out would come the pictures... I loved hearing their stories, seeing their pictures but I felt left out of the circle of motherhood because I have no little ones:( then I remembered I have a baby he may walk on all fours and he may be a little hairy, he may like to sleep out under the stars and he may not be able to talk in human language,and yes he may be a kitten but he is my baby, he is spoiled rotten and he loves me, So when I was in the room with these mothers I said now that I have heard about your child can I tell you about mine? They was always so eager to hear my typical mommy story and when I said FRESNO a lot turned their heads and walked off but my new found friend understood she stayed and she listened we were away from home on a business training and she would say I miss my girls and would say and you miss your little one then when we were getting ready to come home she kept saying at least your little one will wait up for you:) I was one of those people that thought pets are pets animals and that is it if a person thinks and treat s the animal as if they are their children they are weird and have something wrong~ Wow how wrong was I-- animals hold a very special place in your hearts no they are not humans, they are animals but they are a part of the family and are very special!!!!!

Here are some pictures of my little one, my Fresno

Beautiful baby

A kitty has a strong hold of your heart

Cat nap (now I know where that term comes from)

Very Photogenic ( it must run in the family)

A little rascal (I told you he is spoiled rotten, this is my close to my heart box, thankfully I had taken all of my supplies out just had the bubble wrap still inside, Fresno popped them all:) )

Have a wonderful Day!

May Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Oh my goodness where does the time go? one minute it is April and the next it is May!!!!!!
Welcome to the May blog hop if you have come from Jen's blog you are on the right track-- WELCOME~

I have been so busy trying to finish up school(I graduate in a few weeks), work, my other job, CTMH workshops and business trips yeah April was BUSY~ I am hoping for a slower May

Because I just got back from a business trip I did a super super simple card (I am almost embarrassed to post this next to all of the creative projects, but because of the lack of time you are just going to have to get simple from me(:!!!! )

I used the sample pack of paper (another perk for being a consultant) used Zippidee pattern, cranberry cardstock and colonial white cardstock to create this card and of course the May stamp of the month (I promise some more detailed and embellished cards later in the month!)

Thank you for stopping by now hop on over to Laurie's blog to see what she has created this month

Happy Stamping
