Monday Evening

Hi Friends!

I am sorry I have been out of touch lately.  I have had a major crisis happen in my life.  So if you come by and don't see anything posted for a while, please forgive me.  I do ask that you pray for me and my family.  Satan has attacked in a horrible way and I just need the strength to get through this. 

Thank you and God Bless!

Tuesday Tid-Bit

Hi Everyone


I do like to make new cards and try different styles and techniques.  I was poking around some of the "How to make" section on the internet and came across this cute friendship card. This crafter used the colors Pink and Green together, but since we are in our Summer season, I changed the colors for mine.

I thought I would give it a try and make.  It turned out so cute and it was a simple card to make.  I had purchased some unmounted stamps from Stampin Up and thought I would try and use them.  I love that they are selling unmounted stamps now. Yeah! The storage is fantastic as well.

I have a feeling that I'll be using this set a lot especially the flowers. They lend themselves so well for layering.

Thanks for your visit today.

Have a wonderful evening!
 
Hugs,
Kim

Sunday Awareness

Hi Everyone!

I have been away from a while.  I was trying to get a blog facelift, but unfortuniately it didn't work out.  So I just played around with a few of the new templates blogger offered and I am content with what I have.

I started a new church today.  I love it!  While the choir was singing, I thought, "I am home!".  It was such a overwhelming feeling.  I have been wanting to try this church out for sometime and a friend invited me to meet her.  I am so happy that God put her in my life at this exact time.  Such a blessing!

My feelings for the day:

"My emotions are valid. I am beautiful and I deserve to pursue, share, and express unconditional love, pleasure, and happiness. I bring new love into the world. I am empowered by love and my gift is beauty in truth."

Come visit my shop sometime today.. I have a great special going on!!!  Some FREE gifts with each purchase.  The more you buy, the more I throw in your bag!!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful and blessful day!

Wednesday Evening Talk Time

Hi Everyone!

Sorry about this, but I am having difficulty with my computer.  I am not sure what has happened, hopefully I didn't catch anything.  Perhaps my server is down.  Anyway, I can't really blog about anything tonight.  I do wish you all many blessings and will type something up in a couple of days.

Thank you for understanding!

Hugs,
Kim

Saturday Evening Post

Hi Everyone

So just a quick post tonight. I did a little project today that I wanted to share here on my blog. It's a different take on the matchbook cover, like the one's in my shop. This time instead of adding a piece of candy or paper to the matchbook I decided to use some leftover seed packets that I didn't plant this year. I think this would make a great gift for my friends.

Oh and a super super super special shout out to CowlickCutie for the FABULOUSLY FABULOUS handmade flower. Can I just tell you that I'm amazed at her talent! I love your handmade flowers.

Let's get started.
You will need:
1 digi stamp - Boy Bear
1 sheet of pattern paper 11" x 4"
Corner rounder
Embellishments
Copics

Step 1
Print out your fantastically cute digi Boy Bear and color with your Copics

Step 2.
Score the 11" x 4" pattern paper at 1" and 6 1/4"



Step 3
Take two strips of sticky strip and place on on the inside of the matchbook and one of the 1" flap of the matchbook (make sure this is close to the crease).


Step 4
Attach your seed packet to the inside of the matchbook. Then attach the 1" strip to the seed packet. NOTE: You will want to make sure that the sticky strip on the 1" piece is at the bottom so you have room to close the matchbook.

 Step 5
Adhere your digi stamp to a piece of card stock and decorate.
Step 6
Spread the love! I think your friends will love this little "Just Because" gift.

Have a great week everyone!

Hugs,
Kim

Monday Morning Coffee

Good Morning Everyone!

Happy Memorial Day!  I would first like to thank all of our armed forces that have and are currently defending our beautiful country!  THANK YOU!  XOXOXO

I follow a website called Craft Project Central that let's you sign up for 10 fun tutorials each month. There are others that are there that make these fun tutorials as well.

This last week I was inspired by a great little desk created by Michelle U over at Mushi's Creative Inspirations blog. You should check out her blog. Michelle is so fantastic and so fun to follow and watch all her fun projects.

Anyway I thought I would take a try and make this cute desk. This was so much fun to put together. I had to keep checking out finished product from fellow crafters that too was attempting to make this darling desk.  It took me a while to get mine done, but not too bad I think. This little desk is great to put paper clips in or loose change for the soda machine. You could even put stamps and return address labels in the little drawers. Anything really your heart desires!

Since my camera was on the blink, I was able to get a picture from another creator so that I can show you a sample of the finished project.  Go check out the web and sign up to make some of the tutorials that they offer.  Great projects to make with the kids!

Hope you are doing well. Thanks so much for your visit!

Have a fabulous day!

Hugs,
Kim

Sunday Morning Chat

Hi Everyone!


The warm weather is finally here and that means evening out on the deck with a great cut of tea.

This is a super super quick box that I've made to hold different flavors of tea that I can take out to the deck with me.

Tea Cup Pippin is great company for a yummy cup.

I also decided to use the decorative edge punch as the handle and I'm loving how it turned out.

Gives it such a Spring lattice look.

I hope you are having a great day.

Thanks so much for your visit!
 
Hugs,
Kim
