November is Gratitude Month

At Stampin' Up!, I am super fortunate that teamwork and inspiration are an integral part of the culture.  Both of those concepts are far from foreign in Direct Sales, but with the team I've joined up with, they are palpable and lived on a day-to-day basis. 

I was inspired by one of my Team Leader's, Lisa Pretto, to make and send someone a card of gratitude for every day during the month of November.  That's 30 cards, folks!  I'm a little intimidated by this, especially with Christmas right around the corner (I get the feeling that Christmas seems to kick into high-gear before the Halloween candy is even inspected; and I am certainly no exception to that rule.)  BUT, Lisa's enabling me to take a moment each. and. every. day. to STOP and reflect on the people who bless my life and encourage me to reach out to them and remind them of how much I appreciate them.  Thank you, Lisa.

Since it's my life mission to help and inspire others, I challenge you to do the same!  It's scary, I know, but I'll help you by sharing with you five different quick, easy, and simple cards that you can make and send to the important people in your life.  And, if you follow me on Instagram, I'll share a new card that I'm sending out every single day!!  See, you're helping keep me accountable to my challenge!

So without further ado, here are five cards to jump-start your creativity and inspire you to make a card and send a card and share your gratitude with others.






When you make and send your cards, share them with me on Facebook or Instagram and use the hashtags: #IMadeACardAndSentACard #PapercraftingPassionistaInspiredMe

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! Supply List: Cardstock (I used Early Espresso, Pear Pizzazz, and Crumb Cake for the samples above) Check out the Coffee

September Challenge: Drink More Water!

Do you drink lots of water?  I don't!  I've found that I am hard-pressed to get even 8 ounces of water in my body during the day and that is no bueno!   I was really beginning to see the signs of dehydration---including a lack of energy and irritability!  (Yes, that's a real thing!  Check out the symptoms of dehydration here ). So, I decided to do something about it.  I decided to start drinking more water.  And I read more about water. It's no secret that water helps with your overall health; like aiding in weight-management , energize muscles , balance the body's natural fluids and improve kidney function .  But, I was shocked at how much water can help with your skin!  And for someone who is kind of fanatic about their own skin (yes, I am!) I wanted to know more! Did you know that your skin is 64% water?  So, it's safe to say that your skin health is directly correlated with your water consumption.  In fact, dermatologists and doctors have seen that wa

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, ther
