Congratulations Boston Red Sox on the amazing win to become the World Series Champs

Hello Everyone!!

Confession, I am not a big fan of baseball. I find it a bit slow for my taste. My sport is football.  But I do support our state teams and I know when to pause and witness a great moment in history. So I did watch the second half of the game. I loved seeing all the players run together to celebrate as soon as Koji Uehara delivered the pitch to strike out Matt Carpenter!  I can only imagine what joy this team felt after working so hard together all year.  It must have been amazing.

To see grown men jumping up and down, hugging each other and I am sure some tears is a great thing to witness.  I ran out this morning to get the newspaper so that I can include it in my scrapbook.

That said, I was up until 12:30am and am very tired with no new “Confessions” update.  But I will plug away today and tomorrow I will have something to share.

Oh and Happy Halloween!


Cute embellies!

Cute wooden embellishments from Michael's.

Cute wooden embellishments from Michael’s.

I thought I would share these cute embellishments I recently bought at Michael’s in the dollar bin.  They were $1.50 each but I think they were well worth it. They are made of wood and each initial is styled differently. I mean really look at the packaging – all of my favorite colors.  I can even use that colored cards on a project.  I am thinking I could use them in layouts, Project Life or even mini albums about my family. I bought the first letter for each of my family members.

I will be share to post a picture when I use them. In the meantime, I am just really pleased with this purchase.

Have a blessed day!


What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday – #230

I love coloring.

I love coloring.

Hello Everyone!  Happy WOYWWW!  I missed you all last week. Just needed a break to tend to home.  But I have been doing some crafting. My challenge to myself via my blog series has proven to be the jump start  my craftin’ mojo needed and I have been crafting daily.  So I am really happy with my progress.

On my desk you can see the birthday card I made for my sister,and a  fun one that I made for my shop with a vintage stove on it. The other two, I am still working on for cards.

I bought a new printer combo a few weeks ago in place of my old Epson which printed beautifully but the toner cartridges were too expensive and cutting into my fun money so I got a combo that can print, scan and copy. Although it isn’t as amazing as my Epson, it is pretty good and the toner is a third the cost. So more fun money and if I need amazing printing I will send them out.  I am so thrilled to have a scanner because I have just begun my genealogy research and I can scan right here.

Well, I am off to come visit your desks!

If you haven’t learned about this amazing creative journey you can take every Wednesday, then head on over to Julia’s Stamping Ground and you will find desks from all around the world for What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday.

Have a blessed day!


Confessions of a Scrapbook Kit Hoarder…#9

Hello Everyone! Welcome to my blog series, “Confessions of a Scrapbook Kit Hoarder“. If you haven’t already, please read The Intervention so you can understand the inspiration for this craft adventure.

My first card I created with the October kit.

My first card I created with the October kit.

I hope you had a great weekend! It’s getting colder here and I am starting to want to curl up with a nice blanket, cup of tea and a book even more. I am an avid tea drinker and this time of year, I tend to drink even more.

I have this great Mo Manning digi of a vintage stove that I have been wanting to color up. So I took some of the paper from the October kit and made a card.  I used my Silhouette to create the title and doily banner.  I thought the banner looked like a kitchen curtain.

Behind the card you can see my Silhouette Portrait. I bought it a few months back and I love it. I have only scratched the surface of all the functionality this wonderful machine can do. Having a blast learning.

I will be back later this week with more projects from my October kit.  I am looking forward to the challenge of using these papers this time around.

Have a blessed day!
