Hellllllooo, October!

Whew!  We made it!  It's officially my very favorite month of the year---October!  While here where I live, it's still fairly warm (almost 80 degrees today!) and it may not completely feel like October, I know that the crisp, cool air will be here before I know it!

While this month is my favorite, I swear, it's also my busiest!  I have birthday parties to throw (my son's), an anniversary to celebrate (my wedding anniversary), and trick or treaters to treat (that's Halloween, my friends!).  There's an awful lot going on in the world of Papercrafting for this Passionista!  Ha!

I got a little bit of a head start (OK, maybe not really, but let's just assume that I did!) and I've made a few treat toppers for my Halloween treats.  They're not packaged yet, but that's because if I buy the candy early---it will get eaten.  And that's No Bueno for me and my diet.

Here's an image of one of the treat toppers I made:


It came together quickly and easily with elements from the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper and the stamp from the Spooky Cat Photopolymer Stamp Set.

Here are a few more that I created and will use a small clothespin to attach them to a little treat bag:


The top two utilizes the Spooky Cat Photopolymer Stamp Set and the middle one uses some more of the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper and an old retired stamp that is just too cute to not use!  I did embellish that tag with some of our Black Rhinestone Jewels.

Also, now that it's October, there are some awesome sales going on.  Don't forget to stop by my Specials Page to see what's going on now!

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
