Happy Holidays!

(Sorry It's late in the hop guys, I fell asleep last night thinking I hit post only to find out I didn't)
It's release day over at Sassy Studio Designs and hopefully you are here as part of the hop.
We have some great new images out today to celebrate this wonderful season.

This year My family and myself went Apple Picking when we were back in Pennsylvania to visit my Sick Grandmother, and we needed a recipe to go with all those delicious apples we brought home. Now I have an aunt who is diabetic and my dad and husband and really cautious of what they eat so we used splenda and I tell you what it was perfect! So I repeated the recipe for Thanksgiving as well. and I wanted to be sure as to not loose the recipe again so I made myself this perfect little recipe card featuring the Sweet as Holiday Pie Image. 

Hope your Holidays are all just as sweet!
Now continue on the hop or head back to SSD for the list.

I am so excited to be crafting alongside my team again this release! It has been so long since I got to sit and craft. Granted I am sure I will start having more time again after June 1st since I have been laid off my job :-(... but that's okay more time for crafting and new SSD images!

So this Project I used the Tin Sassy image. I love this image and intended to do a sentiment with it but after it was done i thought it was perfect as is, more a 3 d paper art than a card. My original intention was to do something along the lines of  "Missing you from the bottom of my Heart"

I used lots of glitter cardstock and pop dots  and it is gorgeous...however because f all the glitters it was very hard to get a good photo... this one shows i used a mica glitter pen to add a sheer fine glitter to her eye makeup and shows some good detail in her hair

one last shot so you can see a little of the layering that i did. and shows the ruby red stickles i used on her lips and heart, and the smokey eye shadow i gave her

Thank you for stopping by! All the new images are in the store ready to be purchased and used to create your own pieces of art. And if you followed along the hop I am almost the last stop for the day! Now head back to the SSD blog to finish up today's hop and make sure to come back tomorrow for more.

Happy Crafting!

Happy Release Day!
Wow it has been a long time since I have been able to post those words on my own personal blog.
It has been so long since I have been able to craft, and boy can I tell with how simple this card turned out but with how long it took me to complete lol. I am sure I will get back in the swing of things though.

So for those of you who know me or my store Sassy Studio Designs, you know I love Movies, especially Disney movies! And when I found out that Disney was doing a prequel to the Wizard of Oz I knew it was something I had to get in on. I searched out every sneak peak, interview and movie trailer or photo I could find, and with big Disney releases such as this it can be hard to find too much before the release of the film. But I was loving what I was creating. Then the movie finally came to theater and Hubby and I stayed up late and went to see the midnight showing Thursday night and it was AMAZING! and I felt 100% on track with the images I created . So I completely excited to release this release to my fans this weekend. I have 5 images so far and have plans for more to come.

But here is my card using Glinda Sassy.

I hope you will stop by the blog and check out the wonderful Hop the Design team has put together.

and you can purchase this beauty and the rest of the images at the store.

and make sure to stop in and chat with myself and the team over at the SSD party blog at 6pm PST tonight!
I might have a little surprise for those who come to hang out with us ;-)

New Years

This year I have so many things I want to do just as I have with every year before. Be more organized, Keep my house more clean, find a new job, branch out and be more successful with my freelance endeavors, loose weight, get many plans for this year and  though I know we may never get it all I want to push for small victories this year.

So I did start this year off ambitiously. the 1st day of the year I started sticking to my diet and my sister and I decided we were going to workout twice a day for the 1st two weeks until we went to Hawaii... but I think I wore my body down because mid way through I got sick with a terrible never ending cold from hell. of which I have still yet to fully kick. It was really bad in the beginning was out of work several days held up in bed. I did recover just enough to enjoy Hawaii but each time we traveled it seemed to restart. But my mothers 50th Birthday Celebration in Hawaii was Amazing! Hubby and I had some much needed time together and even though he originally fought me tooth and nail on going, he ended up really enjoying it! To the point where he has promised me we will go back at least every 5 years to celebrate our anniversary and was talking about doing a vow renewal for our ten year anniversary. And even talking that if we could both get jobs he wouldn't mind moving there. ...If only.... But back to reality lol, So even though the point of our trip was Mom's 50th, Hubby and I will be celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary this June So we did make sure to indulge a little for ourselves, which we did. Chris Bought me a gorgeous gold and Diamond Plumeria Necklace which incidentally has 5 petals ;-) and they symbolize Love, Faith, Devotion, Hope and Charity. What a Wonderful hubby and such an amazing and special gift. And He doesn't but me Jewelry, one we can't really afford it but I mean for him to go out and get NICE Jewelry It's something REALLY special. The ONLY other Jewelry he has ever bought me was my engagement ring and our wedding bands. So It was a very special thing for him to do.  So since I got my Anniversary gift early I thought it only fair he should get the same. And he LOVES music. He taught himself ho to play guitar on my dads acoustic and he got to use his dads electric for a bit and though we have purchased accessories or fixed things up, They aren't really HIS instruments. And the 5 year anniversary is supposed to be the wood anniversary, and we were in Hawaii so I bought him a really nice Ukulele which he has already been teaching himself how to play.

Hawaii did side track my weight loss goals briefly, but not too bad. I only gained about 5 pounds back from traveling and lost it back quickly, still struggling to get rid of the last of this cold so it I am sure doesn't help because I don't work out to my full capacity but I have been working out with my sister at least a few times a week and I am sticking to my weight watchers and I am having a slow steady decrease in my weight as well as in my measurements. So, so far this year there have been Great small Victories already achieved and I am sure many many more to follow.

Since We have been back my computer died, yes my wonderful baby died. We tried several repairs to see if we could just get her back up and running but I apparently blew up/fried the motherboard so there was no saving her :-( But Chris has been working quickly to research and put together a new beast of a machine! and I was in NO WAY prepared for that kind of expense especially right after a vacation we saved up for for over a year, but we had to do what we had to do because I could not be without a computer. and I mean I have a little net book I can do some basic stuff like pay my bills or check email etc even though it may be slow and frustrating I was't without internet, but I was at risk of loosing some of my newest files and photos, and I couldn't create any new images for my store. So there have still been a few kinks in the road trying to get the new machine running and set up so I can get back to work but it is almost there! I cant wait she is going to be so fast and smooth I can wait to get to work on my next release!

In the meantime while we have been waiting on the computer we found out my mother in law and her fiance will be staying with us for about a week in march when my husbands Aunt gets married. SO nothing like that to light a fire up under Hubby's tushy ;-) that and me bearing down and cracking the whip! We have made great progress, he has been finally installing our floor molding and molding around the newly installed doors, and yes he got the last of the doors installed too. he got the last ceiling fan installed in the last room of the house the guest bedroom. we still have tons to do like paint all that molding and build the spare bed and get the spare bedroom put together, and replace the toilet in the master bath and install the lights in the master bath, and clean out the shower and put in a new shower head in the master bath so we can have at least a half finish semi functioning 2nd bathroom when we have company. And I also made my way through several file boxes and threw out a ton of stuff and got my office and financial paperwork organized and filed. Still lots to do...but I am super excited we have made such great progress already.... YAY for Small Victories!
