Blog Wear

Happy Aloha Friday! I've decided to give away my previous blog wear that I created using Mindy's kit every month. So if you're interested, leave a comment, with your blog link (so I can visit) and tell me what your favorite stamps are. I will do random drawing and the winner gets one of my previous blog wear. What do you think about that? LOL! I know it's not much, but I get asked to do other people's background, I just don't have the time. So I figured why not the ones I've already used. And not to worry, only one person gets it so there won't be the same one out there in blogland.

So here's the first blog wear giveaway:

I will also create a blog banner to match.

Plumeria by Mindy Terasawa

Sorry I haven't been blogging much! So much to take care of around the house, with the get together's, orders to fill and the class I will be teaching at Pineapple Cove. To top it all off, my poor little Roxy has been sick and I've had to take her to the vets. She seems to be doing all right, she's on meds. The issue wasn't as bad as I thought but the doctor found several other issues. Oye! Anyhow, enough about that!

Here's Mindy's latest kit called Plumeria. Will be available this coming Sunday at DD.

Back in Paradise (^o^)

Aloha fellow crafters! I'm back and slowly getting over my jet lag! Japan was awesome as usual! Before we left the forecast was predicting thunderstorm and rain however we got lucky it was sunny pretty much the whole time! The heat and humidity was awful but hey, we were in Japan! I didn't buy much (to my dh's surprise) but I definitely bought a whole bunch of COPICS! Ahhh, the land of Copics (OK, more so the creators of Copics) was happy I was visiting (^o^)

Anyhow, I have only visited a few bloggers but you can count on my visit once I get back to my regular routine! For now, I am posting an altered Anya/Ian stamp (excuse the horrible pic, I retouched the card and it looks a little better!). Thanks for stopping by!!

It's Friday!

Hi all! Sorry I've been MIA! Been soooo busy this week! Tryin' to get everything ready for my trip and takin' care of stuff that needs to be taken care of before I leave. You all know how it goes!

Anyhow, real quick post as I need some shut eye cause tomorrow is another day of running around taking care of last minute things. The card that I made which believe it or not took me all night (this was the second card, ripped the first one apart it was that ugly!). I know, it's not the greatest card but really if I posted the first one, I'd loose all my visitors...LOL! OK, ok, I gotta get to the card! As usual I wanted to rid all my scraps so I am using the same DP I used for the last purse I made for my parent's 41st anniversary coming up while I'm in Japan. I tried to use a different stamp but kept coming back to TGF's stamp...LOL! Anyhow, here it is and thanks for stopping by! Hope everyone has a great Friday and weekend! Aloha!

I promise I'll try to post one of the tutorials I promised earlier. I've taken pics of the project, just need to write it up. Hopefully I can have that up before I leave.

Before I forget, there's a sidewalk sale at Kahala Mall and Pineapple Cove will be participating! Check out their flyer and head on over there this weekend! ManLe and Victor are the coolest owners (^o^)

Moss Scape Quickpages

Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a great 4th of July weekend! Us? Well we pretty much stayed home and organized our home and did laundry since dh will be on travel this week and as soon as he gets back we're off to Japan! So excited but I know I'll miss my little Roxy! With that being said, I wasn't able to make any cards but made some Quickpages for Mindy that should be available Sunday Jul 12 at DD. She wanted something pretty simple (which is usually how I like creating my pages) so it wasn't really that hard...just very time consuming. So here are the quickpages and I've include a page or two for my own LOs (they are in progress, but thought I'd show you some samples). Enjoy and as always thanks for stopping by! Aloha!

Ooooh, I'm so sorry I haven't posted the tutorials yet, I needed to finish these quickpages for Mindy before I leave for Japan. Hopefully I will be able to do it sometime this week. I've got to do a few more cards before I leave so they can reach their recipients on time! Aloha!

Stomp will be available for purchase on Sunday, July 5 at DD.

Note Purse

OK I have no one to give this to but wanted to make it. I'm glad I made this cause I had the hardest time putting it together. Yeah it's a simple purse but sometimes when it's my first time creating it, I always make tons of mistakes! I'm thinking I should do it one way but I really should have followed the directions step by step! Ugh...oh well live and learn! Anyhow, as I uploaded the picture I can see some minor mistakes here and there so good thing this was just a test run.

I'll post the tutorial for the GC holder and a link to a tutorial for this one tomorrow (hopefully). It's late and I'm feeling blah! Its a wonder I decided to create tonight! As usual, thanks for stopping by! Aloha!
