Wow!  I can't believe it has been two months today since I have posted on my blog.  I've been calling myself a bad blogger, but I didn't realize how bad I've been.  It's not that I haven't been stamping, creating and working my business, but I guess blogging has taken a back burner.  I'm not proud of that and I know that there are many of you that miss me when I don't blog and I'm sorry for that.  Life has held many changes it seems and some are easier to deal with than others.  I won't go into detail because really who wants to hear all that?  I know I don't.  I've decided it's time for me to get back to doing some of the things I enjoy and one of those things is sharing my creations and my life with you all that stop by my blog.  Life can certainly get one down, but that doesn't mean we have to stay there. 

Yesterday was my 14th anniversary of being a Stampin'Up! demonstrator.  In the home business/direct selling that is really a long time.  I was reflecting on that and thought, "Wow!, that is an accomplishment."  I really am thankful that God has given me that desire of my heart to be a creative person, but more importantly that He allows me to share it and I really haven't been that faithful in doing so or at least here on line, but I am going to try and do better.  I'm a firm believer that if you don't use your talents that they may be taken away and I certainly wouldn't want that to happen.

So now if you've stuck with me through all that, I have some things to share with you.  I'll clean up my desktop and share the things that I have done recently and then starting in a day or two I will be doing a series that I'm going to call "Scrap it Up!"  No it doesn't have anything to do with scrapbooking, but will be a series of projects that I have made using my scrap box.  Hopefully you will find inspiration in what I've come up with trying to use mainly what is in my scrap box.  Sometimes when you limit yourself to using what is in front of you, you can really get the creative juices flowing.

This one is using some SAB DSP and the bow was made using the Envelope Punch Board.  I believe this idea came from Deb Valder and I found it on Pinterest.

This is one of the Valentine Card in a Box that I made for my daughters for Valentine's Day this year.  I like to make them something that is not only a card, but something that they can use as a decoration and I think these really fit the bill.  If you need the directions/sizes that I used, please feel free to contact me, but if you do a search for a Card in a Box, you'll find lots of ideas.  I will be teaching this in an up coming class for those that are local.

This is a card that I made way back when the Occasions catalog debuted, but just never got around to posting it.  If you love to color then this beautiful set is for you.  It's called So Very Grateful and is available in the Occasions catalog.  You can view that by clicking on the catalog icon on the right.

This little cutie was cased from Pinterest as well.  I can't remember who the original creator was, so if it was you please let me know and I'll be more than glad to give you credit.  I think it was someone from the UK, but again I'm not sure.  I added a cute little flower to mine.  We made this card at the Bay Shore Scrapbooking Retreat that I vendored the first of March.  The ladies just loved it!!!

OK, this has turned into a rather long post.  I hope you've enjoyed my projects and please feel free to leave a comment now and then.  If you blog, you know how wonderful it is to receive comments and if you don't well now you do.  *giggle*

Thanks for stopping by!
