National Bubble Wrap Day -- Checking In

Hello everyone!  Happy Monday to you all.  Some of you may think today is just another average Monday, you would be wrong!!!!

Today is National Bubble Wrap Day -- yes, those little air bubbles we all love to pop are being celebrated across the world!!!

Who knew??  I saw it this morning on the Today show.  It is always fun to learn what certain days celebrate.  They have some days that celebrate the craziest things!

So take a moment to pause for the air bubbles you pop, but just can't stop!!!

Ok....seriously, I will be posting a video later on today.  It is amazing how long it takes to make the video and then post it.  It takes like 5 hours.  I need to get a newer method of editing, but still will run into a long upload time when uploading to Youtube. 

I also wanted to let you know I am working on getting my videos under 15 minutes.  I thought it would be no problem, but have not been able to do it yet.  I get close, like within 16 minutes some times, still not 15!

Please bear with me as I get my bearings.  I am enjoying this so much and appreciate everyone watching my videos.  Would really love to have you leave a comment.

Thanks so much

Hello There

How is everyone doing today?  I have been having a great day except for my videos not uploading correctly.  I have two more projects I have done videos for. 

I am hoping they will finish uploading in the wee morning hours while I snooze.  :)

I spent this evenings hours having BBQ Chicken, Bacon & Pineapple pizza and playing the new Scrabble Flash with my son -- super good evening!  Always love any time I can get -- he will be 15 in 3 weeks!!

I received my shipment from PC today with my free inks for the Imagine -- what a super deal that was!

Hope all is well and will definitely be posting videos today (1/13)

PS - I really want to thank each and every one of you that have signed up as followers, it means so much to know someone is out there watching.  A big thank you to all the leave comments -- I read every single one of them.

Thanks -- have a great day :D

MPS DT Update

Hello everyone!  I just wanted to let you all know that I was NOT chosen to be on the MPS DT.  I have to admit, it is not a very big surprise.  I knew it was a long shot going in. 

I am going to be filming a video today it will probably be doing a card.

I hopefully will be posting the video later on today.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

My Pink Stamper Design Team Entry - Video #1

Here is the link to my videos.  I had to make two as it is 19 minutes long total.  I hope you enjoy it.  It shows how I made my entry for MPS DT. 

I have been banging my head on my computer trying to figure out how to insert videos correctly, but wanted everyone to see it so I figured I would just link for now, so I can share my videos. 

Please remember, these are my first videos, be gentle :)

Thanks so much!

Episode 1 - MPS Design Team Entry

Hello all!  I am sorry I have not been on my blog in awhile, but you know what the holidays do!  So here I am today trying for a very coveted position on My Pink Stampers Design Team!!!  I SO want this!!!!

You had to make a project using the following:
  • Cricut or Imagine
  • Favorite Cartridge
  • Colors:  Pink (of course!!), Green, Brown & optional color of your choice
We didn't have to as part of the requirements to be considered for the DT, but I wanted to do my first video.  Robyn was the person that made me want to make videos, so I found it fitting that I should make my first video for this purpose.  It is going to be a pretty rough video, but it is my first and I had fun making it.  Now I just need to edit and post!

For our entry we had to post a picture of our project and give the recipe.  Here are the pictures and recipe. 


All supplies are Stampin' Up unless indicated:

12X12 Pink Pirouette Textured Cardstock
11X11 Chocolate Chip/Pink Pirouette Polka Dot Cardstock (retired)
Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Pink Pirouette, Barely Banana (retired), Old Olive, Basic Black
Pink Pirouette, Old Olive & Bashful Blue Buttons
Target $1 Light Pink Adhesive Heart Rhinestone
13X13 Certainly Celery Satin Ribbon (retired)
Small Journaling Square from Love Stories Simply Scrappin' Kit (retired)

Elephant from Birthday Bash Cricut Cartridge (pg 38) 3.75"
Circle and Scallop from Mini Monograms Cricut Cartridge :
Circle (pg 126) cut on Gypsy at W:  5.52 L:  7.82
Scallop (pg 129) cut on Gypsy at W: 6.80 L:  7.53

Thank you so much everyone!  I hope you enjoyed my project. I love this hobby.  It is really hard to put into words what this hobby does for me.  I love making projects for people and seeing their faces when they receive something you have been working on and they light up.  This seems to have turned from a simple hobby to a passion.  I know there are so many out there that feel the same.  I am honored to be considered among you many crafters.  I would be very honored to be part of this Design Team if chosen.   I will be working on the video and hope to have it up soon!
