Throwback Tuesday: I love our Watercolor Pencils!

Today's Throwback Tuesday post is quite literally a throwback to one of my very most favorite cards I made last year.  I thought it might be fun to dig this out and share with all of you one of my first cards I made with our Watercolor Pencils.  (Actually, thinking back on it, I believe this was the very first time I used our Watercolor Pencils!)

Eeek!  Here it is!


Would you look at that bright, colorful pink background!?  Yep, that was the Melon Mambo Watercolor Pencil and I used the Aqua Painter to get the watercolor effect.  I used last year's Love Notes Framelits (now retired) to make my envelop and hearts.  The "love" sentiment is from the Sunshine Wishes Framelits (not retired!) and it was so perfect! 

I made this card for my husband last year.  While the colors aren't exactly "masculine", he loved it anyway and clearly, took good care of my card---and thankfully so, as I can share it with you today!

If you haven't tried out Stampin' Up!'s watercolor pencils, you really need to!  They are so much fun!  In fact, I invite you to attend my Interactive Card Class on Sunday, so you can get to play with them!  Click Here to register! 

Hope you enjoyed a peek at a card from last year's stash and I hope to see you around soon!

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.
