Breast Cancer Awareness Month

It is October, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Honestly, I haven't ever really thoughtfully and purposely done anything, that I can recall, to raise breast cancer awareness in this month.
This month I have decided to make pink themed cards and give a set to each breast cancer survivor and person in treatment that I know and to send one to each person I am close with. While I won't be raising breast cancer awareness, I am hoping to raise spirits and let others know that I care. Maybe I can even get someone I know, who hasn't had a mammogram and is supposed to, to go get a mammogram.

Valetine's Cards

I realize it is well past Valentine's so, sorry. Maybe these will give you inspiration for a "love" card or cards next year.

Im finally getting Cback into realizing it is 2010

It took a long time this year for me to shake up to the fact that it is 2010 and along with that comes my 2010 goals, both craft and life goals. I'm going to throw a few up here I can think of off the top of my head but will add more later, I'm sure.

2010 goals
1. Really, finish that MLK book.
2. Try to only read one book at a time, and finish that book.
3. Create the craft room you want with what you have, plus, a $100 budget (for painting).
4. Send more handmade cards to people just to say hello. (I think I sent 2 last year so, I'll try to do more than 2 random cards this year).
5. Submit that manuscript.****and maybe work on the other 2???****challenge yourself Julie.
6. Volunteer
7. One random act of kindness per month.
8. More embroidery, sewing, scrapping stuff this year on the blog

Another craft room and ideas

Oh what a joy to see this room. There are several things I love here that I would like to make sure to remember. 1. A desk, that appears to be used for its purpose, to work on. Yes, I need one of those. 2. I like that system of hanging stickers, sheets, etc on wire hooks to just scroll through easily 3. Moveable wire shelving, I like anything that moves easily and serves the purpose of storage. 4. I see paper color organized on a shelf. I definitely like being able to see the paper on display this way (as opposed to drawers)

I'm back-with Terra Chips!

It has been quite a long time since my last post, admittedly, I have been slightly off the radar for the last 2 months, but I am trying to get back into the groove now. And here is where I rave about Terra Chips, one of the drains on my bank account. Terra Chips are soo good, you must run out and get some now if you haven't had them already. I literally buy 3 bags at a time because they are that good, and I don't even like chips.
Terra Chips are vegetable chips and they are yummy delicious. I have noticed that there are several varieties out there that I haven't now so, it is my mission to try every single variety (he he). I saw on their website there is a dollar off coupon so, see link below and go get some!
