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!

My Hudson James is 3!

You know what's crazy about Motherhood?  Well...besides everything, of course!  The ridiculous emotional rollercoaster.  One minute, you're so happy and proud, riding on the highest peak---the next, you're plunging downward in a spiral of sappiness and tears that not even Ben & Jerry can pull you out of!  At least, that's how I felt yesterday when my baby turned three.  On one hand, I'm totally in awe and taken back by how incredibly grown up he's become, the little personality he has developed is just so uniquely him, and I truly cannot believe how smart and affectionate he is!  And I'm beyond proud.  Then, on the other hand, I feel like I've just blinked and the last three years have literally just flown by.  I feel like I missed out on everything!  And I was here for it all!  But I missed it, right!?  I mean, he can't be THREE!!!  And then---the Ugly. Cry.  Ugh, Motherhood has turned me into an emotional Hot Mess.

Look at that cute little gru…

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 water does am…
