Slice of Life Sundays: 4-19-15

newslice-of-life-sundays

It's been a hot minute since I've done one of these posts. I was busy getting a bunch of stencils made for an event that I was helping sponsor. The event was yesterday. I hope that the attendees liked my stencils. It's a challenge trying to grow a small business and also working a full-time job. I also love blogging and I've been putting my blogging on the back burner as I've been working on stencils and fulfilling orders. It's driving me nuts because the desire to blog is so strong. It's definitely challenging trying to balance everything that I want to do in terms of blogging and my stencil … [Continue reading...]

Easter Goodie Bag

Easter-Goodie-Bag

I know I've been extremely absent from the blog with the exception of a Slice of Life post here & there as well as a random post on occassion. I'm trying my best to get back to a schedule of posting more regularly. For those that are still following and sticking with me I really appreciate it. When I lost my dog in December it hit me like a freight train. First, her illness that started the first day of November literally came out of nowhere. There were no signs that anything was wrong. She literally went from normal to very sick overnight. Then dealing  with her leukemia diagnosis and … [Continue reading...]

Slice of Life Sundays: 3-22-15

newslice-of-life-sundays

It's officially spring! I love this time of year so much. Friday was a really gloomy day so it didn't feel like spring at all. Then yesterday it rained pretty much all day long so it felt even less like spring. Today the sun is out and it looks like it's going to be a nice day. Hallelujah! We've got several errands to run so this weather will be great to be out in. I'm keeping today's post short because I need to get a stencil order filled and get going with our errands. … [Continue reading...]

February Favorites

February-Favorites

This post is overdue. We're the 7th of March and I planned on posting this earlier but things have been crazy. You know that saying "when it rains it pours"? Well that's a true statement. My husband has been battling a bad cold so it's been hard for me to get much done. I've been dealing with my wrist pain issues. I was supposed to get an MRI and nerve test done Thursday but there was a mix up with the scheduling and neither test was done. I have to wait until later this month to get them done. It's so frustrating but I'm taking a new medication and so far it's helping. I have less pain and my … [Continue reading...]

Happy Cupcake Stamp Watercolor Art

happy-cupcake-watercolor

Today is a special day. I had the awesome opportunity to get together with many other cookie artists to surprise Krista of Drawn with Character. Krista is designing stamps for Whimsy Stamps and she just launched her first designs. At the time I purchased mine she had three designs and I got them all. Now she has seven designs available. Today we are flooding social media with projects we made using her stamps as a show of support for her new venture. If you search Facebook and Instagram for #drawnwithcharacter you can see everyone's projects. You'll find a mix of decorated cookies and … [Continue reading...]

Slice of Life Sundays: 2-15-15

Hello friends. Hope you're having a good Sunday. It's gloomy here and it's making me want to be lazy but we have so much to do today including meeting some friends for lunch. We haven't seen them since November. It's been too long. I also want to go to Ikea and get a Raskog cart. These carts used to be $49.99 but I found out from a friend that they are $29.99 now. I put off getting one because I thought they were too expensive. Now the price is right. … [Continue reading...]

Valentine’s Day Card

valentines-day-card2

Happy Valentine's Day! I wanted to share the card that I made for my husband with you. I've been getting Simon Says Stamp's Card Kit subscriptions for several months now. Always with the intention of making lots of cards but to be honest most of the kits are still sitting unused. When February's kit arrived I knew I had to use it to make my husband a card instead of purchasing one. … [Continue reading...]

Slice of Life Sundays: 2-8-15

newslice-of-life-sundays

It's been forever and a day since I've checked in with you guys. I'm so sorry. To say that I'm in a funk is an understatement. I always go through phases where I feel motivated and not motivated. This phase of non-motivation has been the longest one yet I think. A dear friend recently talked about creativity having ebbs and flows and I can see that it's so true. I've never really considered myself a creative type until four years ago when I discovered cookie decorating. I took art in high school but wasn't really an artist. My sister was the artist in the family and I was the math whiz. I'm … [Continue reading...]

December Favorites

December-Favorites

We're just about halfway through January and I'm just now getting around to posting my December favorites but you'll forgive me right? I was really loving beauty products in December and wanted to put this post together because these are some of the best products I've ever used and you may discover a new favorite from this list. 1) EcoTools Pure Complexion Face Sponge - I don't think sponge is the right description for this because it's unlike any sponge I've ever felt before. It's actually better known as a konjac sponge. When you first open the package it feels hard as a rock but … [Continue reading...]
