Link up!

If you are a new follower to my blog because of linking up over at More Than Favors, thank you so much for for joining me! I am still pretty new as you see I don't have much here yet, but I plan to work on it.

If you haven't come from More Than Favors and would like to "link up" with others, go to and find out how!

Tomorrow evening, I need to do two cards for a card swap so come back to see what I create.

Have a good night!

Here is a card that I made yesterday. I cannot take credit for the design as it was designed by Edna at Create with Expression! For her youtube video, go to She has step by step instructions on how to create this card. Make sure to check out her other videos as she is very talented!

Sorry for not posting for a while. Hopefully, I will be able to craft at least one item a week and will share as I do.

My daughter's fall formal is this Friday. She has her dress (princess dress as she calls it), tiara, jewelry and shoes. Just need to get the nails done, no fake ones, and the hair.

That is all for now! Hope you all have a crafty day :)

Ebates Referral Link

I couldn't figure out how to put it on the side so I am putting it here for now.

Ebates & Coupons

Has anyone used Ebates before? I have heard you can get a lot of money back on your purchases by using them. So, I signed up for an account and will try it out and see. I can get referral credit also so look for the link on the side of my blog here and click on it and join! What you have to lose?

Today I got booklet filled with coupons from Proctor & Gamble. I believe it is the one I signed up for from their website. I cannot be sure as I have signed up for a lot of freebies and coupons! Each day I get some kind of coupon or sample in the mail. Makes it exciting to open the mailbox for something other than bills! haha

Off to get ready to take my daughter to choir practice. She leave for Europe in eleven days!!! Even though I am not going, I am excited for her. I am sure she will have a great time.
