Thank My Lucky Stars! w/WD

Whimsie Doodles Banner

Hello friends!   This post went live a few days ago on the Whimsie Doodles blog… but I didn’t have access to my blog so I couldn’t share it here!! This amazing lady is Super Abby, the newest release at the top of the What’s New page!

I colored Abby up with my Copics and then added her to some star paper… it’s actually from a baby boy paper line, can you tell?!?  Yay for multi-theming paper haha!!  I finished her off with some super cute cloud washi and a sweet sentiment too!!

Thanks for stopping by… I think I finally got the issue with my server and blog always going down/unable to access it resolved… we shall see!!  But whatever happens, I hope to see you again soon!!

2016 Favorite Cards of the Year + OLW 2017

This is so overdue since it’s almost the end of January… yikes!  Time sure does fly!!  I’m still working on my 2016 goals… waiting to hear details on a job offer I got last week to try and plan my goals out.  Gotta be realistic about my time with the prospect of a full time job on top of my current responsibilities, the most important/priority being school, kids, home, family, friends, crafting, and business!

First my One Little Word… last year, my word was PASSION.  I had spread myself too thin and wanted to refocus on the things that stoked PASSION in me, and things that I was PASSIONATE about.  And I think that over the course of the year, I managed to do at least a little of what I intended to do!  But I definitely burned out towards the end of the year, and the sparse blog posts can attest to that!!

The start of this year brought about some really big changes and they’re all amazingly good things.  Different, but still good!  So with that in mind, and how I want to keep moving forward… onward and upward… my word for 2017 is HUSTLE.

Gotta work hard to get what I want but gotta remember to stay humble.  I think everyone has an ideal of who they want to be and what they wanna look like, so this year is all about the HUSTLE to get there and get to that ideal.

And now onto my 2016 year in review.  Here are my favorites from 2016… it was REALLY hard to choose just one!!!

January: Book Lover

February: Panda Balloon

March: Goldfish

April: Thanks Squares

May: Uncommon Friendship

June: DIY Coloring 

July: Baby Elephant

August: Love You

September: Princess

October: Wheelie Fun

November: Clearing Leaves

December: Ugg Leah

Skinny Jeans Abby w/WD

First I want to apologize for being gone for so long!!  I was having MAJOR issues with my server… I simply couldn’t log in or access any of the backend!!!  So blogging was on hold for a while while I got everything fixed.  So thanks for your patience!!!  Things are finally better and sorted so I’ll be back more regularly!!  I also didn’t even get to do my year in review post or my One Little Word for 2017, so look for that soon!!

Now onto the actual post!  This is a card I posted over at Whimsie Doodles the other day!!

Happy belated New Year greetings to you!!  How is your year going??? I hope everyone is doing well!!  This sweetie is Skinny Jeans Abby at the top of the People Digis page!

I just adore her scarf and am completely envious of her skinny jeans… I think my New Year’s resolution every year is to lose weight and I haven’t been successful for the past couple years haha!!  Hope this year is better!

I colored Abby up with my Copics and then added her to some BEAUTIFUL script paper that’s a perfect match!  So pretty… I love it!!

Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon!!

I paired her up with some paper from a 6×6 Jillibean Soup pad + some DoubleDot scraps.  You can’t tell (yay!) but that blue dot circle behind her is actually two pieces! I didn’t have a single piece big enough to make the full circle but I was able to do two almost-halves and then hid the seam behind her… perfect way to stretch your scraps!!

Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon!  One more week until Christmas, I’m so excited!!!

At first I wanted to make him like our Elf on the Shelf, Topper, but then thought it would be more fun to give him a different colored outfit instead!!  Now I want them to make green Elf on the Shelfs!!!!  haha.

Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon!  Christmas is almost here, I can’t wait!!!  Make sure you come join in the challenge for your chance to win some WD digi goodness!!!

Clearing Leaves w/CSD

Inspirational Blog

I’m blogging over at the Crafty Sentiments Designs Inspirational Blog today!  Today is a super fun thank you card using Clearing Leaves.

craftysentimentsdesigns-isabelclearingleaves-kela

I just adore all the Isobel stamps in the CSD store!!  She is just adorable.  And look at her hair buns!!  Makes me wish that we had a true Autumn season in Hawaii with the changing leaves and stuff!

I also want to apologize for how quiet the blog has gotten.  If you haven’t noticed, I’ve dropped a lot of teams recently because things have gotten busier, and at the same time, J and I decided we want to try to simplify things in our lives so it’s not constantly go-go-GO!  I’ll still be around and have stayed on with a few teams, but for the most part, my DT journey is settling down so I can get back to other kinds of crafting that I want to resume like knitting/crochet, scrapbooking, and really making a conscious effort to participate in Project Life so my kids have albums they can look through regularly.  Because they really, really enjoy looking through their old albums and I feel so much guilt for not having anything recently!!

Anywhoo, I’ll still be around, just with less frequency.  Or hopefully, if all goes to plan, I’ll be around just as much with different things!!  haha!  Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon!!
