November Project of the Month: Name Card

Can you believe that we have made it to November?  These last couple of weeks have been nothing short of a whirlwind of activity for myself---and I think it's just about to get busier!  Eek! 

Now that being said, November is such a fun month.  It's a time of gratitude and reflection and it's also the month of Thanksgiving.  Now that the kids' birthday party is over, it's time to move onto my next event plan!  I love hosting events; Thanksgiving dinner is certainly no exception!  And it doesn't have to fancy at all!  Sometimes, just the simplest of decorations is really all you need.  Such as this pretty little Name Card, to give all your guests an extra special "warm-fuzzy" when they're seated at the dinner table.


It really took next to no time at all, but yet, it's elegant, a little rustic, and a little "winter-y" for my Winter Loving Friends! 

Don't you just fall head over heels for this Buffalo Check Background Stamp?  Pair that with the Stamparatus and you can stamp out a ton of these background images in a flash!  Plus, the Winter Woods Stamp Set has the most beautiful looking pine cones and pine branches to give it a fall/winter feel.  And the coordinating In the Woods Framelits has multiple pine cone and branch dies so you can stamp and die-cut multiples in one pass!  #timesaver!  Wrap a touch of Linen Thread around the top and you're set!  Presto!

I also think that this particular layout can be large-sized to create a very masculine card for that special lumberjack in your life to wish him a Happy Birthday or Anniversary or any such occasion!  What do you think!?

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.
