VALENTINE CARDS For me, card-making is therapeutic.  I love Valentine's Day and these cards were super fun.  The huge letter dies from Stampin' Up are great for thes eclipse style cards.

My nieces and I don't see each other too often.  They have been doing 5K runs, but I never have and my schedule doesn't allow for me to get away much when they usually take place.  So my niece Sandy got online and got us virtual runs for this year.  I'm super excited.  You get a race bib and a medal.  You do the race at a time and place that is convenient for you and then you report your time on the website.  And the best part is that portion of the money you pay to do the runs is donated to charity.  The cupcake run we did raised money for the Michael J. Fox Foundation. 
I have always loved shaker cards.  I just don't think to make them too often.  As part of a crafting FB group I belong to, we had a fall shaker card swap.  Here were my two.  I really had fun with them.  The mouse card was case'd (sorry don't remember from where) but the coffee card is all mine. For the coffee card I used coffee beans and it actually made the card smell good.

Happy Fall Everyone!  This is my favorite time of year.  I have always been a little crazy, but I have a lot of different interests.  I figure someday I will decide what I want to be when I grow up.  For now, I'm just going to have fun and do what I enjoy.  One of my newer ventures is Jewelry In Candles.  If you haven't seen these products, they are incredible. 100% soy and they smell great.  There is a piece of jewelry in every candle or tart and you even get to pick the jewelry type.  Check out my website

Oh my, I am sorry I haven't posted in forever.  I will try to be better.  Since my last post, we have moved in with my elderly mother, our oldest son graduated, our youngest started preschool, we went on an awesome vacation in Turks & Caicos with my in-laws, my husband and I went to the Thirty One national conference in Atlanta and I've made a ton of cupcakes and cakes.  Here are some pictures of my Sugar Ninja baked goods.

YAY - Halloween is here!

Halloween is my favorite holiday. I like being scared, scaring others and of course, candy. We always go to Yogi Bear campground and trick or treat. This year I experimented with some cake pops and chocolates.

Cub Scouts and Snakes - really big snakes!

Cub Scouts is a great program and I am lucky enough to be the Cubmaster of our pack. For our fall pack meeting and kickoff, we had a special visitor - Snakehead Ed. The boys loved him and he did such a good job. He brought a huge snake as the grand finale.
