July 10/10/10 Challenge Day 10

Today is the last day of the challenge and I must say that it was a lot of fun getting to know my fellow participants but it was also a lot of hard work. Keeping up my blog, posting a listing everyday, working on new creations, looking after my family and running my household is a lot of work. I really would not change a thing!
Today I am featuring myself, so I hope you enjoy my new Halloween Characters Stickers Galore!

Happy Shopping.

July 10/10/10 Challenge Day 7

Today we braved the weather and headed down to the Jazz festival! The day was threatening rain all day and thankfully it rained on our way down to the event, but once we got there the skies opened up and we had a few blue skies and dry weather. There was a few drizzles here and there but nothing that made us run for the hills.
We had a great time listening to music, enjoying some local food as well as walking around and seeing the sites.
There was a lot of really good local talent there. Shakura S'Aida really caught our attention and we ended up purchasing her CD Blueprint. I listened to it in the car and I really like her music. I'm already thinking of having a dinner party and having this great CD playing in the background.
Today I am featuring Lavender Greetings

There is an array of fabulous cards and tags in this shop and what's best is there is always free shipping. This beauty caught my eye!

July 10/10/10 Challenge Day 5

We are half way through the challenge which I find amazing!
I'm not sure where the time is going. It might be because I've been super busy this week that I've really not had a chance to breath, but the weekend is upon us and I have no plans, as yet, so hopefully I can get to work on a few ideas that I have. I have re-listed my Blue Crown Gift Tags, they are super cute for your little Prince.

Today I am featuring JEmily
Her cards are beautiful and creative! I really like this baby girl card. I love the colors and the layout, now I just need to know someone who is having a little girl so that I can give this card to them.

July 10/10/10 Challenge Day 4

Today is the last day of camp for the week and I'm sortof glad that it's over!
I will not miss the early morning wake-up, getting two kids dressed and out the door in less than 5 min!, the traffic I loathe traffic!!!!!
I will miss getting my work-out done and out of the way by 10:30am. This is a big plus as I'm still trying to loose that last 10 pounds! I can't keep blaming the baby for my weight, she's 14 months now!
Today I re-listed my Red and Blue Star Gift Tags, I showed a picture of my new packaging of my gift tags and they also falls in line with my stickers.

Today I am featuring Harmonia30
Her cards are beautiful and so well photographed! This was a tough choice because all of her cards are so beautiful! I love the way how her cards are labelled by names, I was hoping to find a card with my girls name but I had no such luck but I did really like the Ella card

July 10/10/10 Challenge Day 3

Pink Flamingo Gift Tags

Today is hump day and I'm feeling like a lump! I had a great work out today but I'm really tired from having to out the door before 8:30am inorder to drop my daughter off at camp. Today I am really dragging my feet. You would hope that I would get used to the routine by now, but tomorrow is the last day of camp so I'll have a bit of a relief until I have to do it all over again next week.
Today for my Challenge I am featuring Crickleberry Cottage

I love the feel of this shop, it is very cottagey and vintagey (for lack of a better word). I love the look of these gift tags! They are pink, girly and oh so pretty.

July 10/10/10 Challenge Day 2

Today again I have decided to re-list an item. I'm proving a bit busier than I though and I have many balls up in the air that are on the verge of falling if I don't catch them soon.
There is my studio make-over that I still need to complete, I have quite a few items that need to be photographed, of course I have a ton of new ideas in my head that I need to complete, as well there is the buzz about Christams, that's right you heard me correctly Christmas! I'm still in camp mode. I just need to take a deep breath and get cracking!
I have also relisted a few more items, but you'll have to head on over to my shop to see what they are!

Today I am featuring the works of AJK Artistry
This is a beautiful card which has just what I like, a bit of color and bling! This is a beautiful card and the best part is that it is on sale!

Happy Shopping!

I love going on vacation, it's so nice to get away and I love being able to focus all my attention on my family.  We went up North to cottage country for a week and we stayed at a resort with plenty of kid activites.  We had a fabulous time playing in the park, swimming in the pools and of course enjoying the great food.  We really did nothing for the week other than lounge around and we started to feel guily about that but it only lasted for a moment and then we went back to lounging by the pool.  The week went by way to fast,  I'm already planning on where we'll go on our next vacation which I'm hoping will be before the end of the year.
