Birthday Card

Birthday-Card-2

I've got a card share for you today. It's the birthday card that I made for my husband. Who says masculine cards can't have sequins? Lol! This was my first time trying watercoloring which is real hot right now in card making. I used Tim Holtz Distress ink which I smeared on a craft sheet and spritzed with water. Then I smooshed a piece of Tim Holtz distress watercolor cardstock in it. I kept dipping it in until I got the look I was happy with. I allowed it to dry completely before adhering it to the card base. It was a bit warped so I made sure to use a good amount of adhesive on … [Continue reading...]

Slice of Life Sundays: 7-27-14

slice-of-life-sundays

Sunday, Sunday, Sunday. How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. Can I count backwards? I don't know about you but Sundays are not my favorite day of the week. It's a day where I feel a lot of dread for the work week ahead. Work has been real busy and stressful lately and it's taken a toll on me. I'm looking forward to my vacation in two weeks. It's always good to take a break from work and recharge those batteries. Aside from work stresses I'm also feeling a little bit under the weather. It's allergy related. I'm in the maintenance phase of my allergy shots. This could last up to three … [Continue reading...]

$5 Charge for Whining Sign

$5 Charge for Whining Sign | simplysweetsbyhoneybee.com

Recently my husband saw a sign at a restaurant that he told me he had to find. It was a $5 Charge for Whining sign. He wanted one for his workplace. I looked online and saw many versions of them but decided instead of buying one that I would make my own. I was excited to get to use vinyl for the first time with my Cricut Explore. I designed the sign and uploaded it to the Explore to cut it out. I weeded out all the parts that wouldn't be going on the sign and placed transfer tape over it. I had already painted the wood with two coats of paint. Whatever color you want the words to … [Continue reading...]

slice-of-life-sundays

Happy Sunday! Hope you're having a great weekend. I've spent mine relaxing. Life has been so crazy busy for me lately that when the weekends roll around I just want to relax. I haven't been working on any new blog material because I just haven't had time. I do have some older projects that I can share. I just need to get the posts written. I have had time to squeeze in watching my favorite shows. Lol! Falling Skies, The Bridge, So You Think You Can Dance and America's Got Talent are back on. There are more that I'm forgetting but I'm still waking up. Are  you familiar with Online Blog … [Continue reading...]

Sending Love Card

Sending-Love-Card

Happy Monday friends. Hope y'all had a great Fourth of July. Things were pretty uneventful for us. We like to stay home because our dogs don't do too well with the fireworks. They have Thundershirts which help a lot but they are not a cure. They still get rattled by the extremely loud fireworks as do I. I'll never get used to the sound. It's like bombs going off right over our roof. The rest of the weekend we just relaxed as much as possible. Work last week was crazy so any chance I get to just veg out and relax I do. Anywho, enough about my weekend. I'd like to show you the sending love … [Continue reading...]

Ballerina Cookies

Bowing-Ballerina-Cookies2

I had a crazy busy week last week. Things at work have been hectic. We are down a person in our department, due to medical leave, so it has just made things crazy for the last two months. At the end of each month we have to close our books and the week leading up to it can sometimes be madness. Wish me luck that today goes smoothly. Sometimes I feel like I'm stretching myself thin between work and trying to maintain this blog. I'm not always timely with my posts but I try to get them done as soon as I can. These ballerina cookies were made a couple of weeks ago for a co-worker's daughter's … [Continue reading...]
