TGIF! This week I’m thankful for all the Thanksgiving helpers this year. I hope everyone enjoyed Thanksgiving and had a wonderful day!
A place to showcase my crafts and talk about it...what's better than that? I hope to inspire and encourage others to create things for themselves, friends and family.

TGIF; Thankful Friday

Junk Journal Page and Video; Rainbow
Hi there! I just posted another YouTube on this junk journal page:
Like I mentioned in the video, I don’t love it, but I don’t hate it...I may go back and do something different, but for now, it’s good.
I did want to stress that sometimes that does happen. I just enjoy the process and playing with the different mediums and techniques. That’s why I decided to keep filming this. Not every project is going to be perfect or what you envision, but in the end, it does become something you like!

What a great time to create a Cricut inspired coffee project. The days are getting cooler and nights are definitely colder!

TGIF; Thankful Friday #154
Happy TGIF; Thankful Friday! This week I'm thankful for my daughter and my decision to join the 49 in 49 Challenge; Virtual Marathon this year. It really did encourage me to walk every day. It ended last weekend, but I'm still walking - hopefully, I'll continue.
The weather may not agree with it, but there's still the treadmill.
Here's a photo of my daughter and I with our shirts & medals.
Have a great week and leave me a comment on what you are thankful for this week.
My granddaughter also turned ONE this past weekend. They didn't get to have the big party that they wanted, but it was still fun and she's such a cutie!

Baby Girl & A Pineapple
Boy, I sure get some interesting combinations when asked to make a custom card. This time is was a baby girl baby shower incorporating a pineapple.
I don’t have a pineapple stamp so I knew I’d have to use my Cricut for the card. I used the Cricut for the pineapple and the flower but used three different sentiment stamps to finish the card.

BBTB2 Sports Winner & New Project
I hosted a previous challenge on the Bitten By The Bug 2 (BBTB2) challenge site and it's time to select a winner! Click on over to the site HERE.
I wanted to show off another "sports themed" project that I created. Sports is a common subject in my household and I was commissioned to make a birthday banner with a Raiders theme.
I gotta tell ya, I love Design Space! It's so easy to create SVGs so you can create spectacular projects!
Check this out...
I sure hope the birthday boy loves this banner as much a I do!

Happy TGIF; Thankful Friday! This week I'm thankful for friends and family with unique talents. This week we got assistance from a mechanic friend, a cookie baking/decorating friend, and a house painter cousin.
We had/have a lot going on this week. Our youngest granddaughter turns one tomorrow so we're looking forward to celebrating her Mickey & Friends birthday party.
I hope your week was wonderful and that your weekend will be fantastic!
Leave a comment with what you're thankful for this week. I'd love to hear all about it!

Cards Tie Dye 4; YouTube Video
Monday, November 9, 2020
Happy Monday! It's the start of the two week challenge at Bitten By The Bug 2 challenge site. This challenge is...Thanksgiving.
I don't normally send out Thanksgiving cards but since there won't be a lot of family gathering this year, I decided that I'll send some this year.
I searched for turkey images in Design Space and saw this Turkey Day card from the Simple Holiday Cards set; and duplicated it so I could create multiple cards. These were so simple to do. I love that turkey and I added some interest by putting glitter marker on the feathers. One has a gold glitter marker and the other is clear glitter.
This is a great way to send THANKS to everyone that you are thankful for. I do a TGIF; Thankful Friday post every Friday and it helps me to be grateful and thankful for all the little things.
Come back on Friday to see what I'm thankful for this week...even I don't know yet! LOL
I also have set a goal for myself this year to send at least one card a week. Click on the Card Goal 2020 label to read more about that.
Create your Thanksgiving themed project using your Cricut and link it to the BBTB2 challenge site HERE.

First Birthday Cake Topper and Video
I'm having so much fun creating this cake topper for my granddaughter's first birthday. They are going with Mickey & Friends theme but with a heavy emphasis on Daisy Duck.
Check out the YouTube video:
I used a lot of 3D adhesive because I didn't want this to be flat - it definitely adds fun & interest as well as much needed dimension.
My son and DIL originally were going to have a big birthday party of little miss Daisy's 1st birthday, but with COVID, they decided for the small gathering with just immediate family. Her parents, sister, grandparents, aunts & uncles. There aren't any immediate cousins...yet.
- Cardstock from my stash
- Glitter marker from CTMH (clear)
- 3D adhesive from Stampin' Up, CTMH and Dollar Tree
- Wet adhesive from Nuvo
TGIF; Thankful Friday #152
Hello & Happy Friday! This week has been a long one. We're still waiting for the presidential election results and that may be why it just seems like a long week.
This week I'm thankful for the change in weather. It's been in the mid-70's all week and so nice! Leaves are falling and changing colors so my evening walks have been great. I actually had to cut one off early because I was getting too cold!
What about you? What are you thankful for this week? Please share in the comments, I'd love to hear it.

Happy Wednesday and Happy WOYWW! My desk is full of a project that I’m making for my granddaughter’s first birthday. It’s a cake topper! I’m also creating a YouTube video for this project too so if you’re interested in seeing the end result and how it was done, please come back.

Guest Room Re-Vamp III
We’ve been working on our Guest Room - making it a Hawaiian themed room. I love themed rooms because it’s so easy to get things done. There’s no guess work on what to put in there, etc. I posted some items earlier - pillows I made, a painted canvas and now this upcycled tv stand.
My sister gave this to us so I decided to repaint it and etch the glass door fronts. Honestly, I was a little nervous about the glass etching since I would have had to buy new glass panes if it didn’t work, but it was perfect.

Love To Scrap Challenge Blog; November Challenge
Happy November! The monthly challenge theme at Love To Scrap Challenge Blog (LTSCB) is...Anything Goes. I’ve been working on these super cute Halloween embellishments/tags.
The gnomes are popped up using 3D foam adhesive the rest are adhered flat to the circle base. I made these for a Halloween swap with some fellow stampers. Aren’t they fun!?!
Photo of the supplies:
Now it's your turn. Create a stamped project - any project - with the Anything Goes theme and link it to the LTSCB site. Have fun!
