Yes, McKay is growing up. I am so thankful she is choosing to lead a life that makes her happy. (far left) I adore photos. Just think if THIS photo had not been taken. It would have been
a lost memory.
|Oh my... she is the SWEETEST little Zellie...|
I can't wait.
so hard to believe Tenneson is 5 months old.
Isn't he a BIG boy? I want to just hold him.
This photo tells a story. Matt taking Maxson fishing for the very first time. This photo shares a memory. I know I will be printing out all these photos when I get home.
|We are at day 11.|
I am showing a paper from Nine & Co.
This is one of the 3x4 cards from the 12x12 paper (tag sheet).
We had a great time. Even though some "guy" thought we should be slow dancing together. ha! My son said, "she's my mom" and he said... "so, don't you love your mom?" Oh my... funny.
I am just grateful he wanted to spend time with me. It's important to have that one on one time together. It's important to take photos and document that time. I will definitely print out the photos this week. I don't want the memories lost or forgotten.
There is a NEW weekly TC video today at www.mycraftchannel.com
I showed my LIFE EMPORIUM tag book.
HAVE a FABULOUS Monday-

HAPPY FRIDAY. I am pretty excited. Today I am working for the first time ever from my new office space. I am completely NOT unpacked. I am on the floor right now as I blog. I have cried ALL morning. My heart is full. This week has been a busy week with a trade show, a birthday, moving my office, and just CHANGE. My sweet husband was too weak to start his 4th chemo this week. So they are going to test him next week to see if he is in remission and just proceed with the transplant. I cry nonstop. Often it's tears of happiness and then those moments of sheer sadness. Can you relate?
When times get tough... and they do- I always think this...
BE THE CHANGE YOU WISH TO SEE IN THE WORLD.
I cannot change anyone else but myself. I can't change situations, or Ty's cancer. I can't change the things I wish I could. I can change MYSELF only and be better and do better.
I am excited to go to the TIM MCGRAW concert with my son tonight. Zach and I love country music and I exposed my children from an early age to all types and genre of music. Coming from NC- country music is in my soul. It is a reminder of me of home. So I love that my girls and Zach love it! My son Ty is not really a fan as much and did not want to go. WATCH for photos!!!! I can't wait. I loved that he actually wanted to go with his mama. I'm lucky!!!!!
|TODAY is DAY 10|
of my 30 days of INSPIRATION
I have really enjoyed doing this?
This is is my CLEAR 12x12 PAPER SHEETS!!!!
They are THICK but can be cut with the cutting machines.
Hard to photograph anything CLEAR!
This is using my FISKARS heart punch and then you
make a clear HEART garland with added pink beads.
YES, it can be embossed, painted, glittered, misted

Today is DAY 9 of the 30 days of INSPIRATION.
*this is the NINE & CO monogram alpha 12x12 paper.
Please note it is blurry and faded so that it cannot be copied.***
I wanted to show how I took the papers in the Nine & Co line and created cupcake and cake monogram and word accents.
I LOVE how super FAST and simple it is... with just ONE sheet of paper.
This is an affordable way to say ANYTHING!!! An easy way to customize your next celebration.

|It's DAY 7 of INSPIRATION today.|
I am definitely feeling inspired. I set up yesterday for the SPC trade show in dowtown SLC. I love decorating and so this is
just my favorite thing... PLUS I get to met my friends and make new ones.

I am off to the trade show. I am teaching a workshop this morning to a large group of retailers in my office to. BUSY BUSY and I love it!

Today I am showing a fun way to use my BRAND new 12x12 NUMBER Stencil with Signature Essentials. I love the BIG numbers. You can use them individually or you can use them as one piece that you can put on a layout, bag or anything.
This layout with Maxson is 12x12. I have NEW 12x12 clear paper too with this release. This is how to do this glittered number layout with my NUMBERS stencil.
1. Take 12x12 TC clear paper. Place number stencil on top of clear paper. Fill in TC modeling paste evenly. Lift off the number stencil and clean.
2. Sprinkle GOLD glitter on top of the modeling paste. Allow to dry completely.
3. Adhere TC clear paper that has been stenciled to TINSEL & COMPANY triangle paper. Use TC liquid adhesive so that it will dry clear and or the TC stapler to attach to layout. Add photo to right side of layout. Add limited edition circle from TC Hello, My Name is paper.
I wanted to show my adhesive mega runner. So many people have no idea how amazing and easy to change my mega runner is to change. It comes with 100 FEET of adhesive.
This is the clear cartridge for my refill. The adhesive lasts a very long time. When you run out, you simply open up the pink case and put in the new refill.
It's super easy and durable. I travel with mine.
TODAY is a new TC show on mycraftchannel.com. Today you can see this beautiful project:
This is the NEW Christmas Countdown project that I designed for 2014. I am teaching this too. It's a yearly tradition. This is MERRY & BRIGHT with Candy Cane Lane & Tinsel & Company mixed. I am so excited to show it on the show today.
Today I am setting up a 10x10 booth for the SPC show here in Utah. There are 100 retailers or so coming to Utah to see new products. I will be showing video, photos and MORE this week.
