Simple Saturday: Simple Snowflake

Have you registered for my Christmas Card Bar Event coming up in November??  Registration has opened and I've already had a lot of buzz about it---so you'd better get your spot secured quickly, before this Event is full!

Check out one of the cards you could very easily make at this Event!  Using just paper, one stamp, a single rhinestone, and an embossing folder that just steals the show---you can make a bunch of these beauties in no time flat!


It's a lovely card that's super simple to re-create!  The focal point is the gorgeous embossed snowflake, using the Winter Wonder Embossing Folder.  Isn't it amazing how one quick element magically transforms into a gorgeous handmade work of art?!  Seriously, guys, that's it!  The embossing folder and a single Rhinestone Basic Jewel and you've got yourself a card.

I did add the "Merry Christmas" sentiment from the Flurry of Wishes Photopolymer Stamp Set, and since I used all white for everything else, you could change the color of my sentiment to absolutely anything!  How's that for making this card "personal"??

To make this card, use these items:

Or you can register now for my Christmas Card Bar on November 17th and make some of these yourself for just $2/per card!  Hope you enjoyed a Sneak Peek at what you can make in November and I hope to see you there!

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.
