COTW: Granny Apple Green

It's Week TWO of the Inktober Challenge---Color of the Week.  Don't forget to check out my Facebook Community  (click here) and you can find all the information for this month's Challenge there!

Week Two's color was Granny Apple Green.


This green is so gorgeous and bright and it reminds me of summer with just a hint of coolness to it that it can transition easily into fall.  I also really see a bright, shiny Granny Smith Apple whenever I see this color and I can almost smell the sweet tartness!  Mmm...apples...apple pie....fall...**swoon**.

Week Two went by with no players again, but that's OK, we still have THREE more weeks to play!!  Remember: I'm giving away a FREE Ink Pad for the grand prize!  You'll get a new ink pad with all the new innovations (what are those?  Click Here to find out!)  So, I used one of my own color inspiration photos again this week.


I needed to create an anniversary card for the hubs since Year Nine is rapidly approaching in a few days!  While this quilt seems a bit feminine, I thought it reminded me of the Eclectic Layers Thinlits and I wanted to make a card with that.  Here it is:


I incorporated my favorite color in, too, Melon Mambo and it almost reminds me of when you intertwine two strands together they become one to form a beautiful creation---and that's what our marriage reminds me of.  We are Granny Apple Green and Melon Mambo and we have created a union that is as beautiful as the image I put together with paper!  *Aww*!  I hope he likes it and doesn't think it's too girly!  Maybe I'll have to explain it to him...

This can be lots of fun to play along!  I'll be announcing the new COTW tomorrow on Facebook!  So look for that and snap a pic to post for your chance to be pulled as the week's winner and challenge ME to create a new project with your photo!

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
