Mindy Terasawa's Latest Kits

Do you remember when I Mindy made me those cute cookie pictures?  Well she's made a full kit of it and can I say, she's done another amazing job!  Check it out and don't walk but run to DD to buy your copy of it!

 Here's is what I made for my Cookie Exchange invites:

She also made this cute floral paper along with the solids.  I just love the colors and even though winter has just begun, I look forward to the spring on those extra colds days (the few that we get here in SoCal).  Enjoy and can't wait to see what you come up with!

New Mindy Terasawa Kits

Belated Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Can you believe how fast the holidays are coming and going? My goodness, it feels like only yesterday we celebrated Christmas 2011! Are you guys all ready for it?  I can actually say (proudly) that I am truly ready! I lagged last year and it cost me dearly.  So this year I did all my shopping early, did a lot of personalized gifts and I'm happy to report I only have a couple of gifts left to buy.  Everything is all wrapped and the tree is going up tomorrow!  Woohoo for me! haha!  Sorry if I sound like I'm bragging but to be honest, I'm never good at being on time with gifts, cards and getting my act together especially during the holidays.  So I thought why not pat myself on the back? LOL!

So I'd like to enable help you start early...  Mindy's created some Christmas goodies available at DD.  These kits are super cute (as always!) and you can do tons with these!  I had planned on making some samples so I can post but as usual something came up.  I hope to be able to put something together this weekend or next week and post it on my blog for some inspiration.  But for now, I will show you what is new...

{Silly Lil' Christmas} Kit is super cute!

Coordinating stickers to go with the kit.

 And these stickers are my personal favorite! I asked her to
create these for my Cookie Exchange happening next weekend 
and I think she did an outstanding job as usual.  Will 
share my invites soon, so check back.

And last but not least, aren't these card templates 
gorgeous? I'll see about getting a copy to create some samples.

Again check back as I will be using her papers and elements on my December Daily 2012. 

Oh and thanks for the recipes, you still have time to invite some friends to participate in the giveaway!

*Edited* Amazeballs!

LOL! I just love that word! Anyhow, a few weeks ago I posted a pic on Instagram of my goodies that I got from Typo.  Well there was a lot of comments and emails regarding it and I even had one follower repost my pics for her friend to see and she too got a lot of comments regarding my finds.  So I thought, since it's the holidays, why not pay it forward.  So off I went to Typo today got a couple of stamps to give away.

OK, here's the deal...instead of just giving them away, I want something from you!
1.  Leave a comment (when you leave a comment don't be alarmed it didn't go through, it did but I have to approve due to spammers.)
2.  Send me an email with your favorite cookie or dessert recipe.
3.  Refer a friend (leave another comment saying you have)
I'll draw three winners.  You not only get one of the 3 stamps but some extra goodies.  You have until next Tuesday (Nov 27, 2012) to enter.  Sorry only valid to US residents.  Check back to see the rest of the goodies you'll be getting along w/these stamps. 

Here are the three stamps I got today, perfect for Project Life!

Yes, it's been awhile! Sorry, same story as always...busy, busy, busy!  OK, I won't bore you but I'd like to share a few things.

It's been awhile since I used any of my dear friend Mindy's kits.  And well, I was able to play with some today!  Woohoo!  Her Halloween line is as usual, Super Cute!  Check it out: 

I printed out the dp, then cut the stickers using my silhouette (love how it cuts my images perfectly!)

Then I assembled it to make a mini Halloween bag...cute?

Here's another project using my Silhouette to make this box:

OK, that's it for now...if I have any followers left, thanks for stopping by!

Aloha! Man, I can't believe how fast the days are going!  I know I've said this numerous times but really, this summer is flying by, don't you think?  Anyhow, I was hoping to update the blog weekly but as usual life got in the way.  More on that later.  I did however want to share a little crafty project I did tonight.  I bought an awesome lazy Susan thingy (I'm not sure what it's called) I got from Target on clearance.  It was in white and thought what a boring color. I remembered I just bought some Tiffany blue paint and thought, why not spray paint it.  So tonight that's exactly what I are the before and after pictures:

The blue doesn't look like the Tiffany Blue in this pic but it really does IRL.  (^_^)

All right, off to make some birthday cards and my Christmas tags for our swap.  Wishing everyone an awesome weekend! GOD Bless!

Weekend Recap

Yes folks I am back! Shocked I'm blogging again? Me too! LOL!  Thought I'd share my weekend happenings in picture:

Wanted to play with my Silhouette so I thought I'd try and cut out this cutie.
Continued catching up on Project Life and yes folks, I'm only on Week 8.
Needed to give my little brain a change of scenery so I decided to go back to the Silhouette and play some more.
Decided not to use the Princess carriage and just make the card super simple.

Wanted to prep these cuties and have them all ready for my next project.
Spent Monday driving my in-laws around.
While we waited for the in-laws someone must have been hot and decided to sit on her water bowl that was FULL of water. Looks like it did the trick because she was super happy after she pulled that stunt!  What a lucky little girl to be able to pull something like that off w/o it being an issue.  What a dog's life!

It's Thursday!

My goodness the weeks are going by so fast! I'm sure most of you that work say it's not going fast enough.  But for me, staying at home you'd think I would be bored to death.  But to be honest, I have tons of stuff to do and when I look up at the clock and see how it's almost dinner time I'm always wondering where the time has gone.  But this week, I actually can't wait for the weekend to come (will explain later). We got some stuff happening over there weekend and I can't wait.

Anyhow...  Today I am sharing a small look into my Project Life.  Are you doing Project Life? I know most of my visitors are card makers, but if you are a card maker or a scrapper and you are participating in Project Life, please share a link in the comment section, I would love to see.  Mine is so far behind, I'm even going back to my first few weeks and adding a few things here and there, which isn't helping me get caught up...LOL! I hope to be caught up soon, but I'm really far behind!  I guess key to keeping up is to make everything as simple as possible especially since that's the whole purpose.  OK, here's mine:

OK, before I end this post my dear friend ManLe is pre-selling the new Sister Stamps at her online store here.  You can also purchase all the other stamps there too!  Check it out and order now with the Pre-order special!

Don't forget I still have some stamps for sale, you can check it out by clicking on the "Items for sale as of 051712"  Please feel free to email me if you have any questions!  Aloha!

Well hello there!

I can't believe it's been since January since I've last posted! Wow! I can't say it's been super busy for me, but it's not like it's been mellow for me either.  Everything is a blur since I haven't really blogged.  I guess the good thing about blogging is remembering what you did and it's always nice to go back on old entries reading them.  I just wish I wasn't so lazy and devoted some time to blogging.  It hasn't been a priority and that bums me out.
Like I mentioned earlier, nothing really exciting has been going on.  Went on a few mini trips, decided not to go with dh to Japan last week (I know what a shocker!).  I had things here I needed to take care of and he kept going back and fourth on whether he'd be there for two days or longer.  I didn't think it was worth all that travel for two days.  Of course by the time he found out it would be a week, it was too late for me to get a good airline deal.  No biggie, to be honest I wasn't feeling a long trip nor was I itching to head back to Japan.  Don't know why, call me crazy or just getting too old.  Anyhow, I knew if I didn't go, dh would get me everything on my list and surprise me with other things.  And boy did he!  He got mostly everything on my list (the few he didn't get was in Tokyo and he didn't have time to go.  No worries because I was able to buy them off Amazon but had he gotten them it would have been way cheaper! Oh well...).  I will share (hopefully) some pics of the goodies when I get the chance.  But please don't hold your breathe as you know I'm not always good in keeping my promise when it comes to my blog.
Moving on...  I've been crafting here and there.  Mostly scrapping and usually I don't like sharing my pages w/journals because of privacy issues.  I have shared some online but that's because they were DT requirements.  I'll try to post a few of my Project Life layouts once in a while.  Yes, I decided to participate in it this's a no hassle way for me to scrapbook, especially when I don't have the time to really do a proper layout.  I haven't done any cards in almost a year.  Well, maybe a few for some occasions but no real stamping cards...makes me sad.  I hope to do some in the near future and share on this cobweb infested blog of mine (^_^)
OK, I think that's all I have time for, I will  leave you w/a few pics of the happenings around here!  Thanks for stopping by, hope everyone is doing well and hope to visit all your blogs as time permits!

Working on Project Life:

Picking up my in-laws at LAX, did you know dogs are allowed in the baggage section?

Decided to be hip (my GOD-daughter thinks I'm so not hip by saying "hip" haha!) and paint my ring finger different color

PS - I will be posting some Sizzix dies for sale in a few days!  Please be on the lookout!

Catch Up

Happy New Year everyone! I know I'm only 11 days late! LOL!  But it's still the new year don't ya think? (^_<).  So how was/is everyone's new year?  Mine? Interesting to say the least. Lots of stuff going on, had family over for the holidays and life is slowly going back to normal (I hope!).  For those that are friends with me on FB, I recently deactivated it.  I just figured I needed a break and if I didn't deactivate it, I would log on while I was bored or waiting in the car to peek into the lives of my friends and I just wanted it to be like the good ole days.  I like to find out what's happening w/friends the old fashion know, write, call or see them in person and catch up.  So I have no clue when or if I'll reactivate it.  Right now it's been nice, not knowing everyone's business or vice versa...LOL!  So if you were wondering, no, I didn't defriend you or block you (^_^)

OK, onto a few pictures to catch you up (I am posting pics from my phone, so some pictures may be grainy).  

LO of my trip to Paris (more to come).  I decided to scrap the old fashion way...with actual paper and embellies that you can actually touch (^_^)

I'm so in love with AT's mini books and I just can't get enough!  Even though I know how to make these, I find it way more convenient to just grab me some of Amy's and scrap away.  I'll be using mine for my travel journals so I'm really excited to go on my next vacay...I'm hoping it'll be back to Japan springtime.  Crossing my fingers.

M got me the Cameo (which I absolutely love, love, love!) for Christmas/Bday...but who are we kidding? I'm buying some crafty stuff and playing the bday card, am I lucky to have a support and giving dh...hahaha!

I participated in Dec Daily and slowly putting it together.  Its a lot harder when you took pictures w/3 different cameras...sigh, why did I do that?

OK, I think that's all the pics I have on my phone...will try to post regularly.  Although, I've been super lazy to blog you can bet I won't be doing it on a daily basis.  Thanks for stopping by...hope to see and hear from all of you soon!
