7 Questions Part 3!!

1. What is your favorite color TO WEAR?

I love to wear purple! Its my favorite color and I also like to wear turquoise. If you click on the circle purple it will take you to color meaning blog. I really liked the definition of purple. 


2. You are given the choice between visiting every country and landing on the moon. Which would you choose?

I've always had a fascination with space, I would love to land on the moon and see all the stars clearly.  

3. What's your favorite animal and why?

My favorite animal is a whale because I wanted to be a whale biologist as a child. Since I was not able to  follow that dream I am donating part of my profit from my online store to Sea Shepherd foundation in the war against killing whales.



4. You are forced to do one of the following, which would you choose? Sky dive, scuba dive, or this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4B36Lr0Unp4

I would jump at the chance to scuba dive! I would love to swim with whale or whale shark!

5. You are given the chance to go back in time. Which era would you visit?

The Victorian era, I just love seeing those ladies with big dresses and going to parties. I would love to do that for a day but only one day.

6. If you had the power to remove one thing (ie: flies, mosquitos, junk food) from the earth for good- what would it be?

I would remove weapons from the earth, they just bring destruction. 

7. What is one thing you've learned from Pinterest that made you think "GENIUS"!

One thing that made me stop and think how awesome, was  a light box made out of a box.  I am so going to that!

12 tags of 2012 (March)

 I wanted to show you all my tag for March. I am participating on the 12 tags of 2012 at Tim Holtz blog.  I just have this thing for tags, I just love making them! 



The butterfly was made with chip board and fabric using a die cut from Tim Holtz line.
 Then I used Glossy Accents to make it all shiny.


The purple flower was made with a punch and the yellow flower is made out of wood shavings. My wonderful sorority sister Mica send me the flowers that where left over from her wedding.


 I made the love sign from a stamp that I got from Michaels. I stamped the image twice with two different colors and then I traced it over with a black marker. Then I used Distress Ink pads to make the embossing standout more.

Till later.

Monster Sign


I'm back!! I've been super busy this past two  weeks and my hubby has been hogging the computer so I have not been able to post much of anything. What have I been doing? Well I went to a scrapbooking weekend with a group of wonderful women. I got ten layouts done! I am about six months behind on my little monster book scrapbook. I also hurt my hips because I was sitting the whole time I was there. My wonderful friend Erica came over and fixed me up and now I am good as new!


As you all might now by know I love Ikea and I found a white panel for only $5 in there clearance section. The first thing that came to mind was that this would be a wonderful sign. I went to Hobby Lobby and purchased wooden letters to spell out my son's nickname. I spray painted the letters in white and the board green. Then I used gorilla glue to attach the letters.


I wanted the sign to have more function so I got clamps at home depot and tide blue yarn around them.


I used an old jar of spaghetti sauce and tightened the clamp around the neck of the jar and glued to the panel. Now I can place keys, crayon or anything my little monster might want.


I also purchase little doggy hangers to hold sweaters or bags of toys.


Thank you for joining me!

Till Later.
