Very early Sunday morning, a good friend passed away to go with God. He had been battling brain cancer for approximately four years, and I am so thankful that he no longer has to suffer, no matter how much I and his family miss him. He was a funny guy and had a heart of gold. I just know God has a special job for him on the other side.
If you could, please pray for the Grubb family, especially his wife Wendy.
Rest In Peace B-Ugg.

So I am thoroughly ashamed of myself, but I took pictures to shame myself further… lol
This picture is after I’ve cleaned HALF of the mess up! That table was my computer desk, and yes, there really was a computer on there with all that. The couch was making a barricade for me to pile up against, then we moved the couch and I got to work.
This is the pile that I’ve already moved into the office
And here is what is already half organized in the closet
And here is WHY I decided to tackle my mess… To go from this
So I may or may not be going tag crazy… =)
Over the next week or so I will be adding a lot of die cut tags. There are already a few available, and if you feel you would like a different size or color, or even a shape I don’t offer yet, please let me know through etsy’s message system. (You can get with me many, many other ways, but that will be the easiest to keep track of)
I also got my glittery little hands on some discounted washi tape that I wanted to pass along! Right now you can purchase a set of two washi tapes for $5 and free shipping! Pick from 4 designs… http://www.etsy.com/listing/126893190
So that little adventure I told you about? I finally got around to uploading the pictures! Remember, these birds really are as close as you think they are! The one chickadee almost landed on my head!
Happy New Year! How did everyone spend their last night of ’12?
I spent it without my husband, but my best friends, and it was fantastic!
Not everyone got Christmas cards, so I made some new year cards. This involved a photo and Happy New Year printed on card stock, spray adhesive, and glitter! The flower up in the corner is recycled newspaper and the chipboard numbers are from BasicGrey’s Fact & Fiction line. The background behind Happy New Year is glitter I found and copied and pasted til it made an entire background =)
I pray that 2013 shows you blessings beyond your wildest dreams, and you go for the gold in whatever you undertake!
So theornamentgirl.com is one of my new favorite places to surf! I just saw on her facebook a popcorn ornament and had to wander over to her blog to see it! (click on the pic to go to the tutorial)
oooooo and I was reading through the comments and found another good idea! If you don’t want to pop corn in a glass ornament, find the plastic ornaments that open all the way and pop it before hand!
I have some used stamp sets that I’m willing to sell for $5 (plus shipping) most of these sets retailed from $10-$18.
Visit my site for more great stamp sets! http://melissakurtz.ctmh.com
I have been a busy little bee! Someone asked about scarves, so I’ve been crocheting my little heart out! I have some scarves, a few infinity scarves, and a few flowered ear warmer headband thingies… LOL I know, what a thing to call them!
I had a little fun making business cards with scrapbook supplies =) I had some from vistaprint, but they didn’t have this blog on them, and they were just so blah… I hate to waste them =(
I’ve also been trying to sew for my tiny doll, she is proving very hard to sew for! I’ve named her Ramona.
There was a little snow the other day, but this tree just won’t give up it’s leaves! (sorry, early morning photo and I couldn’t hold still for the exposure)
Reese’s Puff’s Muffins? Not so sure about them…
I need to make a trip to the store- I need wood dowels to devise a display rack, wood glue for said wood dowels, hot glue sticks because I lost my bag of them, and narrow blue and white ribbon to match the fabric I’m making scrap drawstring bags out of.
How are your holiday preparations coming along? I’m hosting Turkey Day dinner at my house on Friday, we are traveling to the Hub’s aunt’s house on Thursday.
I just find that pictures do more justice than me rambling on for no reason. I especially don’t want to get myself started on politics…
I’m doing two craft shows coming up; December 1st at Baker College in Owosso, and December 2 at Gutting Law in Owosso.
Kid Size Rainbow Scarf
Sneak Peek at Monster Blanket
Takeout Boxes made with my Cricut
Taffeta Infinity Scarf
*sigh* It’s almost November. While I am excited for the holidays, I am not excited for the big bad S word and cold that hits Michigan around this time. There was already a little icy slush this morning which made me want to cry. The wind has been awful here, and I pray that those on the east coast are safe, warm, and dry.
Today I should be making cards and purses for the craft show this weekend, but with Halloween looming over me, I don’t want to do anything but play video games. =P Since I’m being a slacker, I’ll post a few pictures I’ve taken lately.
Yeah, that’s my car in the background. This is our little ornamental tree in front of the condo.

Thanks for wandering by! Hopefully I really will get some work done and take pictures. Tomorrow is the big Trunk n Treat at Fowlerville United Brethren Church. If the weather holds, it will be our biggest turn out yet, we were able to send home 2000 flyers with elementary students!! Praise God for the schools letting us! If you live in the Livingston County, Michigan area, we’ll be at FUB from 6-8pm, passing out candy from trunks (at least 40 trunks!) playing games inside, and feeding everyone free food!
