Milkshake Anyone? New Release from The Stamping Chef!!!

Hi everyone!!  Happy start-to-the-weekend!  I'll be spending mine stocking up on crafty supplies but I wanted to share the awesome new release from The Stamping Chef with all of you!!


This is one of the cutest digis ever!  I have to confess though, whenever I look at this, I hear that song in my head, "My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard..." LOLOL!  And whenever I think of that song, I think of my cousins bringing it up at a family event and my grandmother saying, "She's singing about a milkshake?" and they preceded to tell her what it was actually about.  Can you say uncomfortable?!

Be sure to check out what the rest of the Sous Chefs have created this week!

New **METAL** Challenge with The Stamping Chef!!!

Happy Hump Day everyone!  This weeks' challenge at The Stamping Chef is to use METAL in your project.  I wasn't sure at first which digi I wanted to use for this, and then all of a sudden in my head I pictured Asian coins and I thought, Kirei!


A close-up of the coin and handmade tassel....


Be sure to play along with the challenge, it's a ton of fun!  Thanks so much for looking.  Laters!!

Music Monday

So I've been trying to FINISH projects.  I really struggle with that, but I'm proud of myself for finishing this card tonight.


I'm entering this in Paper Take Weekly's The Sound of Music Challenge.  Everything is about music, for me. I'm also entering it in The Paper Shelter Challenge 112 - Anything GoesOne Stop Craft Challenge - Anything Goes, Crafty Creations Challenges - Keep It Simple.

I'm off to catch up on The Voice (GO TEAM USHER!!!) and work on some other cards.  Gotta unclutter my work desk!!  Laters!

Art on a Monday

Hi everyone.  I'm trying to get a lot accomplished this week so I've got to be crafty all day, every day if I want to meet my goals.  You guys probably know that I'm not great at meeting my goals, but I'm working on it!

Anyways.  I wanted to create something awesome and it just so happens that it fits in with some of the challenges going on right now, so I'm able to enter it, yay!  That's on my goals list, too, entering more challenges.  


I made it in purple, too, because purple is my favorite color.  


This is the one that I think I'd frame in my craft room.

Mega Meet 2013

Every year I vow to be more active and involved and absorb more at my favorite event of the year, the Great Lakes Mega Meet! Anyone who's ever attended knows the level of AWESOME that exists within these walls.

This year I wanted to make ALL the free Make N Takes, and I wanted to spend an hour each day watching Tim Holtz demo.  I wanted to get my book signed and I would've wanted to take a picture with Tim, but being that I'm the world's worst photo subject, I don't wanna ruin a perfectly good photo of Tim.

I have to admit, and I'm sad to do so, that I didn't accomplish my goals this year.  I *forgot* my book for Tim to sign, and while I thought about simply buying another copy, I decided that wasn't in the budget when I was trying to complete collections on the Distress Stains, Perfect Pearls Mists, and Dylusions sprays (also fails, but there's always the shows in August, October and November!).  I didn't have time to do any make and takes due to a vicious migraine that claimed most of Thursday.  The worst part--and I don't care if I sound whiny here--is that it was impossible to actually watch Tim do anything.  There were only eight chairs and then people at least two rows deep behind the chairs. I am short.  It was hard to see what he was doing from a great distance, and those women sit down and stay there for the entire show.  It really was ridiculous. I think the demos should be rotated.  He does one thing, then the people switch out, he does another.  It's only fair.

Okay done ranting.  This is the make-and-take inspired card I made, because the lines were nuts so I couldn't wait to make it, but thought this was awesome.


My eyes don't move like theirs did, but it's close!
