I may not be on my blog, but I'm on Instagram!

New Family album

It's been forever since I've posted anything on my blog. But I didn't want to overwhelm Instagram with 15 pictures. I created an album for a friend of mine who is having a baby shower next week. She's having her first baby. A little girl. (Aaaaw!) I selected papers that matched her home instead of the typical pink baby girl papers. That way she can use it as a family album and not just a baby girl album.

The papers are fairly masculine in style, and kind of heavy. So I added just a touch of lace here and there using a Martha Stewart punch. Not too much since a picture of Dad may be put in the album.

Pattern to make book came from Paper Phenomenon - All OccasionsMini. I altered it to 5x7 size.
Papers came from Hobby Lobby: The Paper Studio - Ninth Street

Have a great day!

Get some of your money back

I don't know about you, but I have already started doing a bit of my holiday shopping. Much of what I purchase I buy online. If you're interested in a way to get some of that money that you spend on the stuff you buy online back, you gotta check these two sites out:


Both sites offer rebates back when you visit their site first, then follow their link to the site where you want to buy your items. Many times I will fill up my shopping cart first (because I forget) and right before I finalize the checkout process I double check the two sites to see who has the best rebate.

Ebates sends me a check each quarter. Big Crumbs deposits my rebates directly to my PayPal account.

I don't shop a LOT but I am finding that I am shopping more and more online. The rebates aren't huge but they do add up. If nothing else, they reimburse some of the shipping costs. So, I think it's worth it.

I'd love if you would use my links in this post. I get a referral "bonus."

Thanks for stopping bye! Happy shopping!

I know it's been a while since I blogged. It is not that I haven't been crafting. It's more about the fact that life has kept me busy. I take pictures of my crafts in hopes of being able to hop on the computer and blog a bit.... then the pictures get filed and the post doesn't happen. Oh well.

I made this little hand out several months ago for a friend of mine who wanted to give these to the young women she taught. The lesson was on modesty.

The quote reads, "What you put on your body 'talks.' And everyone who sees you 'hears' what you're saying."  Here in the AZ desert modesty can be a real issue. Especially when it's over a hundred degrees outside and the last thing you want to do is put clothing on, if you know what I mean.

I drew the shape and cut them out using SCAL and then used my printer to print the quote on to each dress. We cut them out in several colors (purple, blue, yellow, pink) but for some reason I only seem to have a picture of the pink. (Hmm...?) Then I tied a bit of ribbon around each. And Voila!

That's it for tonight. Thanks so much for stopping by.

Thanks for the link SugarDoodle!
