Project Life Week 18 and updates!

Hi friends! How are you?
Hope you all are having a great weekend! I am enjoying this long weekend. So far I have spent the weekend with my nephew and watching/hanging out with him. We have had so much fun.

It is SO nice to finally get my MOJO back and get back into my routine. After 2 surgeries for a lumbar epidural steroid shot in my back for me, my Dad going through 2 surgeries on his heart, taking my daughter to the ER last weekend to find out what was going on with her because she was coughing so much and was having chest pains and couldn't breathe very well ... just with everything thats happened in the past two months I have been very stressed, depressed and worried. But now that my Dad is doing better, I am doing better and my daughter is getting better I feel so much better without all the worries on my mind. 

I just want to say thank you to all my wonderful friends who have been so great through all of this and have given me so much support and lifted me up when I needed it so badly. Thank you so much! I love you all.

To get my mind off the worries and onto the fun hobby I have been neglecting I decided to work on my Project Life. And I have to say I am having a blast with it! And I would love to share with you all!! (: (:

If you haven't heard of PL ... where have you been? Just kidding. If you want to check it out, go HERE to the website. But beware you might get hooked! (:

I have been working/starting with Week 18. I am going to try and get most of week 1-17 done but it will take a bit to get caught up so I am going to make those weeks pretty simple. 

But for week 18 I just love embellishing each card and picture. It's so much fun.

This is wk 18 pt 2. This week my daughter and I went shopping for her for some new clothes. We had a blast at the mall then we came home and she modeled for me. (: (: So cute!

My theme for wk 18 part 2 is Heidi Swapp. I used allot of her new collection. Also used some Studio Calico stamps and accessories, washi tape, and The Crafts Meow stamps.

Here are the details of each piece:

This is my favorite page, I love all these papers by Heidi Swapp and these new stamps by Studio Calico and Ali Edwards. This side is more of our shopping trip and her first time sewing. Great memories. I also used the Jenni Bowlin Composition notebook stamp to make a little book detailing our trip.

Hitting the road to the mall :)

The little diary of our trip I did and a pic of my goofy kid while we were having lunch at Red Robin.

Donating stuffed animals. She wanted to document her favorites. 

So cute! And goofy!

My little crafter. Just like mama. Her first sewing by hand project. (: LOVE IT!

Trying to figure it out :) :)


This is Wk 18 pt 1. Documented my weight loss. I have lost 41 lbs. so far! YAY! Feels so good. Also on the this page is art time with my buddy (my nephew) he drew auntie some pictures that I saved. And movie night at the bottom. Week 18 pt 1 theme is Amy Tangerines new line. Love it! I also used my new Studio Calico stamps and accessories again, some things I printed on my new Silhouette Cameo, and washi tape.

Thanks for stopping by! I will be posting more this week. AND I WILL BE DOING SOME BLOG HOPPING AROUND TO VISIT EVERYONE ... I miss visiting everyone, I havent read blogs in a long time. Cant wait to see what you all have been up to.

If you have room, I would appreciate some prayers/healing thoughts for my daughter, my dad and me. We are still healing from everything thats happened. But I am so glad to be feeling better enough to start crafting again, I have missed it. Also working on some new illustrations for TCM, Unity and YNS. Watch for those releasing soon.

And please let me know if you have bought any of my stamps designs. I would love to share them on my artist Facebook page and here. Just email them to me

Have a fabulous week!!!
