Throwback Thursday: Hallo-Scream Card!

Are you an "any occasion is the perfect occasion for a card" type person or are you more of the "birthday and maybe Christmas you get a card" type?  Well, you know what type I am and even if you're more the "birthday and maybe Christmas" type, you may just change your mind when you see this delight Halloween Card I made for my kids.

Growing up, my mom put together a collection of cards that I received throughout my life.  Birthdays, holidays, special events; you name it, they are all there.  I treasure this collection of sentiments from family members and friends; some whom have passed on.  I am currently working on doing the same thing for my kids and trying to commorate each occasion with some card-like memento that will (hopefully) be treasured for years to come.

With that, let me share my Throwback Thursday card and we're gonna throw it way back to a stamp set called "Fang-tastic" (I want to say this was from circa 2010!).  If you have this set, you know the utter adorableness this set creates.  If you don't, well, then, you may have to scour the internet to find it, because it's totes adorbs.

Here's my card:


Eek!  I paired this stamp set with the At Home With You Bundle (includes: At Home With You Photopolymer Stamp Set and At Home Framelits for 10% off!!) as well as the Brick Wall Embossing Folder to create a duo of Trick-or-Treaters and their trusty little kitty side-kick.  Clearly, one will guess that my daughter and my son are the little Witch and Vampire and our beloved Smokie Cat is next to his little sister, like always.  The pumpkin inside the wreath is also from the Fang-tastic Stamp Set.

The At Home With You Bundle is so super amazing!  It's the perfect foundation for building a scene---especially a Trick or Treating scene, right!?  I mean, I just adore how these two sets created a perfect and super fun Halloween Scene!  Don't you?  All the fussy-cutting was truly a labor of love, but when you do what you love, you love what you do; even the fussy-cutting!

Here's what I used for this card:

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this creation!

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.
