Blogging on a phone!

Blogging on a phone!

I say kudos to those of you who can blog by your phones. I’m trying to do this on my phone so that my blog doesn’t go without a post this week. Starbucks makes a great stop to do this! On Sunday night we had a horrible storm, lots of thunder and lightning, and that left us without any phone, internet, or cable TV. It’s been a quiet few days which is kind of nice. I don’t think you realize how much noise comes from all of these services.

Then the quiet days I’ve been working on a little bit of Bible journaling and editing a workshop for Studio Sue. In between my volunteering and all of my mom duties.

It’s been a nice time of reflection. We have Sarah Grace’s 10th birthday party this weekend. It’s really hard to believe we’re in double digits now. I look at her and realize just how fast she’s growing up.

And then I’m off to get ready for a Memories Made Here crop the following weekend. Can’t wait to see everyone in York, PA!

Maybe doing this on my phone isn’t do bad. I’ll have to figure pout how to watermark my pictures this way.

Special Thoughts

Special Thoughts

Everyone needs a box to keep those special letters or notes in.  I had some flowers left over from Love Letters (last month) and I have a stash of these cute boxes that open up. Combined, it came out quite well.  Paint up the box with some acrylic paint.

Using the letters that are left over to put “special thoughts”.  Add the flowers around.  Liquid Glass helps the flowers and letters stay on better.   I have some extra vellum butterflies from another project and added that on as well.

While Love Letters is over, you can make all of these flowers with the Flower Market Cricut Cartridge.  It’s a great purchase with over 700 images on it plus $54 worth of stamps and $14.50 in paper included in the bundle.

February things to keep in mind:

Thanks for stopping by to checkout my creative world.  Take some time to create a special thought box for yourself or another friend.  If you need some creative help,  I’m here to help you out – email me:
