Transformation Tuesday: Lavender Grapes

Sale-A-Bration is winding down with only 11 more days to go!  Be sure to get your orders in to snatch up the plethora of goodies that will be saying good-bye to us in less than two weeks!  (Don't forget to use Hostess Code: 9NUQR2XV so you get an extra free gift from me, if your order is under $150!)

Okay, so with that being said, on today's Transformation Tuesday, I want to share with you how I made some simplistic "thank-you's" for my friends who placed wine orders when I hosted a Traveling Vineyard Wine Tasting.  I used the Lots of Lavender Photopolymer Stamp Set (which is a FREE Sale-A-Bration Item!) and turned it into a bunch of hanging grapes (to fit with my wine theme).  



I layered the stamped image onto some Wood Texture Designer Series Paper and wrapped a tiny bit of Linen Thread around the foreground.  So super easy, but it does look like a bunch of grapes just perfect for the picking and turning into one of my favorite beverages!  Ha!

It's so fun trying to visualize different ways to get additional life from our products!  What else can you use this stamp for?  Leave me a comment with your thoughts!

Hope you have a great week, Friends!

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

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.

Lent 2020: Days Nine-Thirteen

Hahah.  I am realllllllly good at sticking to my Daily Gratitude Posts.  {Insert Eye Roll Here}.  Well, I guess I can blame life, sicknesses, etc., but the reality is---I haven't been sticking to my Lenten Commitment of being Intentional.  But, let's forget the past and just start moving forward, right? Day Nine: Thursday was a rough day.  HJ was still sick-ish.  I started having the WORST sinus pressure.  I had a horrible headache.  I was out of ibuprofen for myself and I really didn't feel like going anywhere, despite the fact that I was beginning to get a little stir-crazy.  But, then I remembered how incredible Target Pick-Up is!  Just click, add to cart, checkout, boom.  Less than two hours later, I get a notification that my order is ready and I drive myself (and my sick kid) to a parking spot, GPS notifies Target of my arrival, and check---I have a bottle of ibuprofen and Advil Sinus meds in my hands and I'm back on my way home to my couch and snuggles withou
