Cute Paint Chips Idea

Ok so I came across this cute idea. You take your punches and punch out one of each color on the chips... you end up with many different colors that can be used on cards or to decorate gift bags. Simple to do and free! Now, dont everyone run out to Home Depot and Lowe's and empty out the samples... hee hee...

Welcome Spring Time Tag Swap Group!

Well Spring is definitely here. We have a new piggy my son Enzo is raising for our July Fair. He arrived on Friday. My allergic reaction began on Saturday. I'm home today waiting for medicine to take affect and being miserable for the time being. This is the reason for not posting our tag swap participants last night. I was in a Claritin D coma. Well, piggy's name is "Game" and weighs 93 pounds. By fair time, he will be the ripe ol' weight of 280 pounds. I love him already and cant wait to do his first scrapbook page!

Now on to the swap! Here is a list of our participants: Myself of course, Paula Dinh, Adriana Winfrey, Erin Taylor, Sena Woeste, Laura Pesenti, Carol Klink, Christine Slack, Gayle Valeros and her sister ( I need her name please), Donna Voracheck and Cassina Maynor. Yeah! I'm so happy and cant wait until June 1st. Remember, if you have any questions just ask. Thank you again to all who are participating and I look forward to seeing your creations.

Whoo Hoo! Tag Swap Is Officially Closed!

Thank you so much to everyone who replied. I cant wait to get started. We are officially at 12 crafters. I'll send an update on participants and more info on Sunday night. Get crafting. My scrap sister Paula and I are "over achievers" and have already begun drafting out tags. Thank you again and its going to be a great experience. A few weeks ago, I was crafting at my friend Adriana's. My son has a Christmas Craft Fair in December at his school where all the elementary kids can come on one day and purchase homemade items for their families. Everything is $1.00. I have already began working on the items I'll be donating this year. Here is a little sneak preview. It's an idea I saw on You Tube. You take roofing flashing purchased at Lowe's and cover it with paper to make a magnetic message board. Clothes pins will be decorated and adhered to small magnets to hold photos etc. I loved the idea and thought it would be perfect for his craft fair. Here's to hoping the kids will love them to.

Tag Swap Update & Blast From The Past!

"First Tag Swap Update"

Okay all. We have 10. We need ONE more! Go and get me one more! I'm so excited to get started on this little venture. A HUGE thank you to my scrappin soul mate Paula who recruited for me. We have a really talented and blessed group of scrappers. I just wanted to let you know that Sunday, I'll announce the group and then you can begin crafting. Last night I was diligently going through and organizing my photos when I came across this picture of me and my dear friend Sena. We attended GASC in Texas two years ago. My how time flies. In 2012, Paula and I braved Mall of America in Minnesota and attended ScrapFest. My goal is to attend one HUGE event each year. This year however, is a little crazy so I'll be staying local in California. BUT, watch out! 2014 is going to be the best yet. Plans are underway to attend MEGA MEET in Novi, Michigan. Save your pennies, recycle those aluminum cans, hold garage sales etc.... whatever you have to do to save now. I would love to have you all attend with me. Its Mother's Day Weekend in 2014. Thank you again for all who have signed up for our first tag swap. I'm excited and humbled to have you as scrappin family.

Yours in Scrapping,
