Scrappy Beads "Christmas in July" Etsy Shop

Hello Friends,

Is it just me or are you simply taken back that it's already mid June...? Oh my goodness, how time flies.

I've been working on my "Christmas in July" goodies. I love this time of year, as it gets me excited to see what will be a hit or miss for the holidays. Normally I do these events here in town, but this year I am looking forward to having items in my Etsy shop as well. Please stay tuned for more information.

Until then... I pray you're all going to have a blessed and safe summer with your family and friends.




Lots of BIG hugs,

Creating with 8" Accucut Alphabet Dies

Hello Friends,

These past few months have come and went just as fast as 2016 it seems. There's much to be done in 2017. I will be offering many new items in my shop over the next few months, so check back often. *Ü*

As my children get older I find myself being drawn towards home decor when it comes to crafting. I have recently started working with 8" Accucut chipboard letters that I spruce up to decorate any room in our home.

They can be put in frames, placed on shelves, suspended in air ever so cleverly, a focal point in banners, and so much more. Taking an 8" raw chipboard letter and letting your mind soar with ideas has been so much fun for me. Yep, this girl will lay in bed sometimes with an idea that I must jot down, because I just know I will forget it if I don't.

Over the next few months I will be sharing my creativity with you. I will be placing many of the designs I create in my Etsy shop as well. We have had so many wonderful comments made when we have had the blessings of family and friends over. I have had a lot of requests to create custom designs and I am absolutely loving it!! Kids rooms are the best place to become so creative with my ideas. Oh and I love to create fun ideas for a laundry room.

I always find myself going outside the initial purpose of what an item may be designed for. Oh the places my mind goes when I think of a particular die being used to create an adorable accent to a child's name. When the name is finally presented to the family they remind me of why I love what I do. Okay, I need to stop now or my mind will keep going like the energizer bunny!! Wheeeewww!!!

Until next time...

Have a beautifully blessed week everyone.

Lots of BIG Hugs,

The Holidays Will Soon Be Upon Us...

Hello Everyone,

Can you believe it...? Yes, the holidays are just around the corner!! Ghosts and goblins oh my...


I can't wait to smell the delicious food cooking on Thanksgiving morning. My mouth is watering just thinking about it!


My most favorite holiday of the year... Christmas!!


The year passes us by so quickly that at times I feel like I am missing something. I am looking forward to the holidays with our family and friends.


I have many "craft" goodies to make for our upcoming craft shows and my own personal boutiques. This tends to be an extra busy time of year for me... but it's full of joy and creativity!!!

Wishing you all a very beautiful Fall Season...

Lots of BIG Hugs,

Missing... Have You Seen Me...?

Hello Friends!!

I have been missing in action off and on for quite sometime now. Life... is a never ending journey with many stories to tell. All of the peaks and valleys in life are what help us to grow and appreciate all the more... don't you agree? Here's one of my favorite quotes...


Keeping busy has never been a challenge for me... it's the thing called "time" that gets away from me more than I care to admit. I find myself always saying "tomorrow I will..." and yet when that moment comes it slips away. At the end of the day I am reminded why "time" is so important. Not in the sense of getting distracted by what you think you should be doing, but by making each moment count. Life is swift... life is precious... life is unknowing, life is given to us this day... and not promised to us another. That's why "time" is so important... live it passionately, wisely, and live it one day at a time.


It is my prayer that you're all having a beautifully blessed summer with your family and friends...

Lots of BIG hugs,

Happy Easter

Hello Friends,

I've been so very busy these past few months, but I wanted to stop and wish you all a very blessed Easter Sunday.


We understand as we get older the true meaning of Easter.


We can't seem to get away from the cold/flu season this year. We will be staying home taking care of our daughters and spending special family time together with all of our children.


Have a beautiful day,

Christmas Cupcake Advent Calendars

Hi Everyone!

I'm making my yearly cupcake tin advent calendars. I love making these and placing fun little goodies inside each compartment. I make many different styles and patterns for the holidays. They can be turned either way and topped off with a pretty bow. I place ours on our table with an easel. This is also a fun way to teach counting to children as they get to find their treats.


Have a fabulous week!

Lots of BIG hugs,

Halloween Faux Flame Pumpkin Decorations

Hi Everyone!

These pumpkins are so well made that I went running back for more. Unfortunately, they were completely sold out everywhere it would seem! The faux flame is very realistic. I also have a wonderful crackling wood burning scented candle in the room. It smells and feels just like a fun Fall/Halloween night! Enjoy the videos...
