Crop this Saturday!

Don't forget - it is not too late:

October 19th is the day. Sign up NOW to reserve your spot. To register, go to
What do you do when you have a creative block? Flip through crafting magazines? Look at Pinterest?   Or other websites for inspiration? I tend to do all of the above.  Then, I get overwhelmed with all of the ideas I don't know where to start. Try to jot down ideas on index cards and randomly pull one out. Challenge yourself to focus on just that idea instead of all of the others.

My sister-in-law, Teresa, and I have been working on Christmas cards. After browsing for card ideas, we get "brain" overload. This year I will try to document instructions on cards that we make so I can use some of the same templates with new paper next year. Stay tuned for Christmas card ideas.

Check out the badge I posted on my blog and the link below to search for Cricut images. It will save you time. We all need more of that, right?

We always want what others have!

I recently went to seminar with other Compensation professionals (my career that pays the bills), and one of the speakers showed this YouTube video:  Monkey Goes Crazy.  It is funny to watch, but really emphasizes the message that we are happy with what we have until we see what someone else has, then we want what they have!  This is true in terms of compensation, scrapbook products, cars, houses, family life or just about anything.  Check it out!

Sharing some photos...more to come

8/10/13 Crop - What projects are you working on?

Wow, I have spent so much time trying to figure this blog thing out it has taken away from my crafting time.  Oh well, once I get it down pat, it will be worth it.  I can share my creations and hopefully inspire others to get busy crafting as well.

Let me know if you are coming to the crop this Saturday and what you will be working on.  I would really like to get started making things for Christmas.  I know that it seems early, but Christmas always sneaks up on me.  If I procrastinate, it won't get done.  I would like to make some scrapbook pages to place in scrapbook frames.  They always make a good gift.

If you don't make it to the crop on Saturday, the next 12 hour Girls' Day Out Crop is October 19th.  So save the date!

Happy crafting,
