Motivation Calendar

Hello!  I made this calendar which came with Sunghee's calendar template HERE from her Little Potato House store.  I love this layout and I love that it has that little box at the top.  It also comes without the box too.  The stamp is Rachelle Ann Miller from Paper Works Co.  It's our duck family.   Motivation is stamped with PTI's Outline Alphabet set.  Clouds are masked with PTI's clouds die.

Anyway, this is supposed to help motivate me to exercise!  Last year I tried to keep up with exercising and I thought I did pretty well in the beginning that is.  After about 2-3 months though, it started to fizzle out and then I got all sluggish again.  I really don't know how people can work out and actually put that into their daily routine.  So I started again about 3 weeks ago but I can't exercise everyday.  I just don't like it and I can't imagine having to do it forever to maintain a healthy weight.  Plus I just want to craft when I have time.  So I thought I'd hang this on the wall so I can stare at it while exercising.  I don't have a picture of it but I wrote down what motivates me to exercise.  Things like my health and my kids and being almost 40 years old and just kind of wrote a list directly onto the clouds area so I can remind myself to keep going even though I feel like stopping.  And I can also mark off the days that I exercised on the calendar. 

Well, I finally got my new Cinch so I'm gonna go play now.  Thanks for reading and have a great Friday!

Yes, cute calendar! At least you're exercising. I'm still at the thinking stage. Hey now, you're not almost 40! My husband was supposed to lose weight before he turned 40, that came and went. But a couple weeks ago, he started logging his food on My Food Diary.com which is surprisingly helpful. I guess he was eating more unhealthy food and calories than he realized. I guess I better cook more often too so we can all eat healthier.

So cute! I need to start exercising again, too. I just don't have the energy w/ work, family and trying to stick in my crafting (to help me stay sane, lol). But I know I should, lol.

Snowman gift card holder

Hi!  I was planning to post this last night but I was just too tired to write or think of complete sentences.  It's been a busy week with the boys on Fall break and still trying to finish up a bunch of crafts.  I have been trying to make some crocheted crafts to put in my Etsy shop and finally I'm done with one.  It's a crocheted snowman that can hold a gift card or anything actually that is small enough to fit in the pouch.  The pattern is designed by ChiWei Ranck of One Dog Woof and can be found HERE . Here's the little snowman with his arms folded over in the front to look like he is hugging the card.  I added this fun card that I stamped.  You can definitely add in a gift card too behind this card. The gift card reaches under his nose. This is how the little opening of the pouch looks.  I hope I can make more of these little guys.  These would be so cute for teachers and I think it would be easy to put a little wire through the hat and then use it as

all occasion tags

Hello!  I have more tags to share today.  I kept these simple too to be used on most any occasion.  They have no sentiments on them. I used MFT's cute Birdie Brown Bitty Bears stamp set.  These were on my wish list for a while and I kept going back and forth about purchasing them especially because I wanted the dies to cut them out too and those were very expensive!  Geez, remember the old days when we used to fussy cut everything out by hand? This is the next 6 tags.  There's also a cute bear with a Santa hat that I didn't include in the photos.  This was a pretty quick project since I kept the bears white!  Not much coloring on these tags but they are still cute and colorful. I thought I was going to be doing more stamping but I've actually gone on to crochet more!  I've made 3 more crochet projects that I'll share soon.  Sometimes I do get the urge to color something but these days it's so much easier to pick up some yarn and my hook and crochet

coffee cup shaped cards

Hi!  I think after this post I may need a little nap!  My right shoulder is actually feeling worn out from all the typing and photo editing I've been doing lately.  And this cooler weather is making me drowsy.  It's getting cold here already! I made a bunch of these coffee shaped cards using a die from Honey Bee Stamps .  It's a cute coffee set but the die is extra long so it would probably help to have a longer platform to diecut.  I just have the standard sized one so I would pass it through once in my Big Shot and then rotate the cardstock and die carefully to cut the other end.  Manageable but the longer platform would be more convenient! I embossed the front of the card with some pretty snowflakes.  I think this is a Sizzix embossing folder.  And then stamped the coffee sleeve with some Lawn Fawn stamps. This is the inside.  The gift card slot does not come with this coffee cup die set.  I cut that opening with one of the dies from MFT's gift card dies.
