Today is the last day!

Today is the absolute last day you can get your favorite items from the Seasonal Expression 1 book - in fact some items are already gone! One of my favorite, the Hopscotch Picture my Life cards are gone!

So, hurry and check out what you may still be able to find - again, anything with the clock icon will go away tonight at midnight.

The other opportunity that will go away at midnight tonight is the awesome opportunity Close to my Heart provided this month for a free shoulder tote, rolling tote and possibly earning your $99 investment back!

Don't delay and start shopping now!

Cricut® Artfully Sent: Pocket Function

The pocket function of the Cricut® Artfully Sent cartridge is one of the most versatile on the entire cartridge! Use it to supplement not only your Picture My Life™ layouts, but dozens of other projects too. You will love the way these classy cards spice up your layouts, greeting cards, and albums in a variety of ways.

As I mentioned before - this cartridge is so versatile! It can be used for so much more than just card making, yes - I love to make cards. But I love to own something, that I can use for more than just one thing and this cartridge is it!

Hello and thank you for stopping by!

This is my first attempt on a blog - can you tell? I am sure you can. From what I have learned about blogs they are like an online journal and you are getting a peak into my soul ...

At this time I am trying to learn how to post my artwork with watermark and copyright and all that jazz -but I a, learning. My plan is to post my work and along with it I will explain what I used and how I made the project.

As we go along, I will also give you a peak into my life. I will share some pictures of my family, places we have been, places we have visited. So, please come back and visit often. Just know, that I am very new to this blogging thing! So, at this time - any help you can give me is highly appreciated in growing my skills in "blogging".

If you live close to me and you would like to join me in my craft place or one my crops please, check my calendar for any upcoming workshops!
