Hellllllooo, October!

Whew!  We made it!  It's officially my very favorite month of the year---October!  While here where I live, it's still fairly warm (almost 80 degrees today!) and it may not completely feel like October, I know that the crisp, cool air will be here before I know it!

While this month is my favorite, I swear, it's also my busiest!  I have birthday parties to throw (my son's), an anniversary to celebrate (my wedding anniversary), and trick or treaters to treat (that's Halloween, my friends!).  There's an awful lot going on in the world of Papercrafting for this Passionista!  Ha!

I got a little bit of a head start (OK, maybe not really, but let's just assume that I did!) and I've made a few treat toppers for my Halloween treats.  They're not packaged yet, but that's because if I buy the candy early---it will get eaten.  And that's No Bueno for me and my diet.

Here's an image of one of the treat toppers I made:


It came together quickly and easily with elements from the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper and the stamp from the Spooky Cat Photopolymer Stamp Set.

Here are a few more that I created and will use a small clothespin to attach them to a little treat bag:


The top two utilizes the Spooky Cat Photopolymer Stamp Set and the middle one uses some more of the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper and an old retired stamp that is just too cute to not use!  I did embellish that tag with some of our Black Rhinestone Jewels.

Also, now that it's October, there are some awesome sales going on.  Don't forget to stop by my Specials Page to see what's going on now!

Tutorial Tuesday: VIA Coffee Holder

Are you following me on Pinterest yet??  If not, please do!  There's a bunch of amazing goodness there!  One of which, is an extremely popular pin---my VIA Coffee Holder.

I enjoy trying new things and one day, while wondering the aisles of my local Target, I stumbled upon these new little packages of coffee, called "VIA".  It's by Starbucks and they are instant coffee singles.  Whhaaat!!?  Naturally, (because I'm a victim of marketing) I bought some.  Then I thought, These are so cute!  I want to do something with them and my Coffee Cafe Suite!  After that, my VIA Coffee Holder/Folder (whatever you want to call it) was born.


I imagine you can see why this is not just my most re-pinned pin, but it's pretty popular on Pinterest, in general.  Woot!

Now, my friends, I will show you how to make your own with my Tutorial Tuesday!

Tip Tuesday: The Eyes Have It!

Did you know that when it comes to creating a stunning look with cosmetics, your eye shape has quite a lot to do with that?  It's true!  Take myself, for example.  I am one of the blessed individuals with a Monolid eye shape (thanks, genetics) so many of the gorgeous shimmery "peekaboo" looks for eyes with visible creases (which is all the rest of you folks!) I cannot easily achieve.  *Sigh*.

And just like clothing, one size and one style does not fit all!  (I could never wear a romper, my short little torso just can't handle that!)  So, today's Tip Tuesday is all about learning how to identify your eye shape and some cosmetic tips for applying your make-up to bring out the best for your eyes!

Let's get started with a couple tips to check out your eyes:

Use a good mirror---a handheld is good, a stand-up is better, and a stand-up magnifying mirror is best!Lights, please!  Artificial lighting is fine, provided you have a clear view of your eye, there's no gl…

Podcast Episode 4: Accountability

How many of you feel like you're on a never-ending hamster wheel, just running and running and running?  Do you blame the wheel for moving too fast or too slow?  Do you blame the cage for not having any space?  Or do you figure out that you need to stop, get off the wheel and get out of the cage to endless space?

I think we all have those seasons in our lives where we easily blame the wheel or the cage.  And the difference between staying on the wheel and blaming it for staying on it and stopping, getting off and getting OUT is our ability to take accountability.

Take a listen to this week's podcast and let me know if it inspires you to stop running on the wheel and instead, figure out how to stop, get off the wheel, and get out of the cage.
