Wow, it's been a month since I last blogged! So sorry! I did take pic everyday in Nov but haven't had time to upload. I'm also participating in Dec Daily.  That's coming along well.  Will share once I'm done. I don't have time to post everyday, especially with the holidays here and family coming this weekend.  Just wanted to pop in and let you know I'm still here...LOL! Oooh, I'm making some cute "to-go" favors for my Christmas party.  Will share when I figure out how to put together the last part.  OK, hope everyone is having a great December!

Day 7 - Everyday + Amy Tangerine T-shirt

Day 7 - Everyday:  This is pretty much my everyday.  I start off the day on the computer and chat with my girl Leslie and then I have lunch and do some house work or whatever needs to be taken care of.  Excuse the mess!

One of the classes I took from Amy Tangerine was how to create her famous are my two takes.  Please keep in mind, I sooo do not know how to sew!  Be kind (^_^)

Day 4 and 5

Sorry folks, I didn't get to post yesterday's photo.  It was pouring rain and well, rain makes me super lazy.  Even though I had two baskets of laundry to fold, I opted to just lay on the couch and catch up on some shows. (^_^)  Of course by the time 6:30 PM came around I was scrambling to get ready to pick up dh from the airport and run a few errands.  Let me tell you, it was not fun driving in the rain at all!  It was that bad!

OK on to the challenge...

Day 4 - what you wore:

Funny about these rain boots...people (and my friends) were going crazy over the designer of these boots.  I forgot what they're called but I've been meaning to get rain boots and when I saw these on sale for only $14 I just had to get them.  Sure they're funky but really, how often would I wear them?  It's not like I'm living in Washington State or London [but hey, if dh gets a job there, I'll be prepared (^_~)]  Anyhow, they really kept my feet and pants from getting wet cause like I said earlier, it was a downpour! 

Day 5 - clouds:


After yesterday's weather, it was such a sweet surprised to see the sun again...

Day 3 - Bad Habit

Confession - I don't make my bed everyday. I know I should to prove to the hubby I do some housework while he's at work. But why bother sometimes when I know I'll be taking a nap in it? hahaha! They say (and I have to agree) when you make your bed right when you get up should starts your day in the right direction. I totally agree with that 100%. So with that being said, my days don't go quite right all the time (^_^).   Moving's my picture.

I'm actually using my iPhone for all my pictures.  Yup, I'm THAT lazy to bust out with the DSLR. Plus the 
iPhone 4S has an awesome camera!

Day 2 of Nov Challenge

Today's theme is Orange.  I have a beautiful bouquet of fall flowers on my table and its orange...perfect!  BTW, I choose not to upload my self portrait on the blog...I try not to put too many personal things on my craft blog (yeah, I know it's part of the challenge but I especially don't like posting a pic, especially if it's just of myself.  And yes, I know I have in the past but who really wants or needs to see that? ) (^_^)  Hope there's some of you out there participating!  If you are, would love to see your photo!

A Challenge for you and a chance to win...

Anyone interested in participating?? I've seen this around and never bothered to.  But for some reason, I've decided to participate this month and maybe make a mini journal out of it.  Sounds like fun, don't you think?  If you're interested let me know and I'll include one of those linky thingies on my blog for everyone to upload their pics. 

This year I've also challenged myself to participate in Ali Edward's Dec Daily.  I tried last year but for some reason I didn't put an album together.  Although I took pics every day, just didn't have it in me to do it...I may do it later...but we'll see.  So this year, I am crossing my fingers I can complete ONE Dec Daily!  My family will be here so life around this casa will be interesting.  Anyhow, if you wanna win Ali Edward's kit below, visit Dear Lizzy's blog here for a chance to win!  Good luck everyone!

Happy Halloween!

Sorry for the lack of post. As usual, life has gotten in the way of my crafting time! How dare! Lol! Hopefully I'll get to share some holiday projects soon. Anyhow, wanted to wish everyone Happy Harvest/Halloween Day! Surprisingly we have more than normal trick or treat'ers this year and I'm almost out of candy! That's a 1st since I've lived here!

OK someone asked if she could greet w/o further ado:

 Happy Halloween!!!

Wanted to share the Halloween favors I made for the nieces.

Their S'mores packages! Aren't they cute? LOL!

Some LOs from Amy Tagerine Class

As promised, here are the LOs we did at Amy Tangerine's class.  So glad my friend Jenny asked me to was worth it and this time the class was a lot smaller so chatting and crafting was way more easier. 

I think I need to add something more to the last LO, something's missing.  But for now, I'll keep it that way until I can think of what to add.  Love Amy's style and her product line!  If any of you get the chance to take her class I highly recommend it!

Its been a while...

...since I last blogged! Wowzer!  Lots happening around here I hadn't had time to blog or do much in the crafting world.  But I'm sort of back...we'll see.  I'll post more about what's been going on, including my fabulous trip to Europe a few weeks ago.  

Anyhow, here's a card I made for a dear friend Les for her 21st bday (^_~)

Used Sister Stamps, I'm not quite sure what her name is.  I'll find out her name and post it later for those that are interested in buying her.  Oooh wait, you can get her at Pineapple Cove here.  Her name is Mei Lei.  I also used Lawn Fawn's Lunar Lights.  If you read my last post, I had the pleasure of meeting Kelly, the owner of Lawn Fawn.  I believe Pineapple Cove sells these stamps you go.  Happy shopping and crafting! Can't wait to see what everyone creates.  Check back later; I will be sharing my travel journal and LOs I made at another Amy Tangerine class I took this past weekend.

Amy Tangerine Class

This past weekend I took Amy Tangerine's class at our LSS.  I totally loved it.  I had taken a class of hers online and learned so much from her.  Anyhow here are some pics of the class. If you think her mini album looks familiar its because I did one here.

These are the projects we worked on.  Of course these are Amy's samples.

Amy and me. Amy is one talented and super sweet lady!

She taught us how to sew words...first off, I'm not much of a seamstress.  I probably sew better with the sewing machine than by hand.  Anyhow, we learned how to do these:

And we had a surprised guest...Kelly owner of Lawn Fawn!  She's super sweet and loved talking with her!

Is it really Thursday?

Wow!  This week went by super duper fast!  Don't you think?  Anyhow, this is another quick post.  Today I'm posting the ATC card I made for the swap at Pineapple Cove.  I didn't realize how much fun I'd have making these.   They're super easy because they're super small.  LOL!  Theme for this month was Butterflies.  What better way to use Flutter Anya!  

Can't wait to see what cards I get back.  If you're interested in participating visit Pineapple Cove's ATC blog here.  Thanks for stopping by!  Aloha!

Birthday Anya 2

Happy Monday!  Here's another simple card that I made for my sis' bday last week.  She's in NYC having a ball while I'm watching her little cutie...  Not much else to!  Oh yeah, I am still working on my travel journal and just ordered a bunch of Amy Tangerine's line to add to it.  Have I told you how much I love making them?  Love it!  LOL!  I made my sis one for her NYC trip and I can't wait to see what she's done with it!  Will share hers once it's completed.  Anyhow, here's my card:

Here's my sister's cutie patootie, he's such a happy dog...

As for this one, not so much! hahaha!

As always thanks for stopping by! Wishing everyone a blessed week!!

To an Amazing Couple

LOL, this card cracks me up.  I had no stamps saying "To", "an" and "couple" so I had to write it in.  Didn't help that my pen was super fine and this is how it looks.  Oh well, the card is for my parent's anniversary last month and they'll love it nonetheless.  hahaha!  Thanks for stopping by and thanks so much for the sweet, sweet comments!

Off to PO to mail my ATC card and to WalMart to buy Soul Surfer.  I love Christian/Inspirational movies AND I love any movie set in Hawaii.  Aloha everyone!

PS, I have no clue why Ian's hair looks that way.  It looks different IRL.

Fairy Tink

It's been a while since I inked up Fairy Tink.  She is one of my favorites and I wanted to use her for another Thank You card. 

Not much else to say.  Just busy chuggin' along tryin' to make birthday, anniversary, ATC cards, travel journals and recipe LOs.  So as you can see, another simple yet to the point kinda card (^_^).  

As always thanks for stopping by! I hope to visit blogland soon and be inspired with all the creative work out there!  Have a great day!

Fancy Anya

Hola! It's another week and another card to share.  This time I used Fancy Anya.  Another Thank You card for a sweet person.  

I know I said I will share my travel journal but I'm in the middle of making two so I'll share it as soon as I'm done.  I'm also working on Ali Edward's A Week in the Life.  I did it when I was in HI but I don't remember why I didn't follow through.  Anyhow, I hope to complete it this time around.  What project are you working on?

Thursday, July 21, 2011


Wow, two post in one week! That's a first in a long time for me! Another card made for a friend...  Again, simple, simple, simple.  I'm sure you can tell I'm not that into too many embellishments.  I guess you can say that about myself.  I'm not into jewelry, always feel less is more.  That's just me...

Hopefully, I can post some of the mini albums I've been working on.  I'm so into the travel journals, made some for myself and my sister.  She's going to NYC and likes my mini road trip one and I thought I'd make her one for her trip.  What I love about these mini journals is that you can take it with you and document your travels right then and there.  Before I'd collect all my memorabilia and by the time I'd get home I'd forgot where and when I got them.  Sometimes I don't like adding them into my actual scrapbook but want them as a souvenir.  The mini journals are perfect for that!  I'm in the process of making my London excited for my trip!  Hopefully I'll run into the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge while I'm visiting (^_^) hahaha!  Wishful thinking!  OK, gotta go bed, got a long day tomorrow.  Have a great Friday!

Wednesday, July 20, 2011


...missed a week of bloggin! LOL!  Not that I have a lot of followers or anything..haha!  A lot was going on...once again crafting took a backseat.  Finally got the new AC installed.  So this chick is a happy camper!  Anyhow, I forgot all that has happen last week so I can't even recap on it.  LOL!  Getting old is no fun!

Any who, I did however manage to make four cards these last few days...yup, you all read that correctly - FOUR cards!  I still have to make a couple more.  Sad thing, I was making a bunch of thank you cards and totally forgot to make my parents a card and today is their anniversary!  Yikes!  Actually forgot about it until my bro reminded me yesterday.  Sigh!  Not good!  Anyhow, let me share the card I made for a friend.  It's just a very simple card and I actually like it...don't know why cause its super simple as you can see.  

I used Bree from TGF and can you believe I've never inked her up?!?  Actually there are quite a few TGF stamps that has yet to be inked!  Anyhow, I love using old stamps.  Especially when everyone and their mother are using all the new ones and you see them everywhere, and I mean EVERYWHERE.  

Thanks for stopping by...remember being a loyal follower may mean something special for one of you (^_^)

Roxy's 1st Book

Finally created a Shutterfly book for Roxy.  I absolutely love how this turned out.  Here are some  pages from her book (excuse the poor quality of the pictures, I took them with my phone):

Thanks so much for stopping by, I know I don't have a lot going on but it means a lot that I have a couple of people visiting.  Also want to thank everyone who sent their well wishes on Roxy's recovery.  She's doing great!  She's tryin' to walk and it looks funny but expected.  Doesn't look like she wants or can bend at the knees, but that'll come in time.  She's not allowed to jump on the beds, couches or stairs.  Wish me luck because those are all the places she's usually on!  

Check back next week (hopefully!) I will have some blog giveaway. And hopefully some card creations!  Now that Roxy's doing better and the humidity going away (slowly), I can bare to be in my studio and create!  Yeay!

My poor baby!

No creative post for this week or maybe even for the next few weeks.  I am on nurse duty.  My little baby had  surgery on her two back knees this past Monday.  She's slowly recovering, but today I notice a little swelling on her left leg.  Please say a prayer that it's nothing serious.  I will be taking her to the Vets tomorrow morning.  Hoping it's nothing and just part of the  healing process.  I'm taking her in because they say if there's swelling to take her in.  So hope it's just a precautionary thing they do. 

Here's some pictures of her progression from Monday night till today:

This was the first night we brought her home.  Wish the pic wasn't so dark, you would have seen her tongue sticking out.  It was cute and sad at the same time.   We had a bit of a rough night with her because she was in pain and uncomfortable.  She woke up every hour and we figured it was because she wanted us to turn her to her other side, she's usually a restless sleeper so once we did that she was fine.

Tuesday morning, she looked miserable.  But earlier we had given her her pain meds and she went right to sleep after we gave it to her.  It was adorable because she wanted to sleep on my chest so we both got a good three hour sleep.

This was taken after we came from the vets, he removed two of her bandages and she was a happy camper.  He also gave her a bigger cone since the other one was way too small and she was able to lick her stitches. 

This was taken today, since we didn't have to go to the vets nor were there any service people coming to the house I decided it would be a stay in bed day.  She and I hung out together all day keeping one another company.  She's such a great dog and an even better companion.  She's always entertaining me, even if she's not feeling well.  Gotta love her!

That's it for now...again, if you don't mind saying a prayer for her, we'd really appreciate it!  Have a Blessed Day!

Another Album

Made this album for my auntie who celebrated her 60th, remember those favors? Well here's her book, this was my present to came late but from what she said, it was well worth the wait (even though she had no idea I was giving this to her or that my toilet paper gift (idea I got from Teri) was gift enough ^_^)

So w/o further adieu , here's her book:

Thursday, June 09, 2011


Oh wow, where did the week go?  I don't even remember what I did this week!  Seriously, I don't remember!  LOL!  I know a lot of it has to be because of dh's uncle.  BTW, thank you all for the prayers!!!  GOD was really listening and our uncle is progressing slowly but surely!  So BIG THANKS to everyone!!!

Today's post is about a few of the things I am obsessed about!  It's a hodge-podge of stuff. This first pic is an order of my Smash Book goodies!  They forgot to send me my black one (which is on backorder) I'll get that later in June or is it July?  I also got a red one from Paper Source, each book as a different things in it.  I just love this line!  It's so cool!  I ordered extra pens/glue so I can make my own Smash Books.  It's a pretty neat book!

I'm so into mini scrapbooking!  I have yet to finish my Hawaii - California book, I'll get to it soon, but I did create one of our little Road Trip a few weekends ago...check below for some pics!

  Still need to finish it up but here are the first few pages.  

Lastly, you know I love me some washi tape.  Got these goodies from the Japanese bookstore from Little Tokyo:

And let us not forget about a card...

Thanks for stopping by, I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
