What!! No social network?

Yes, you heard me correct. I deleted my on-line profiles from Facebook & Myspace.  I was using these sites to keep in touch and connect with family and friends while here in Arizona. But I guess I sort of grew tired of them, I wanted more privacy and to not be easily tracked down by just anyone.  As contradictive as this sounds (because I still have this blog) But I also grew tired of constantly being asked to be someone’s farm neighbor or invited for coffee with someone in Cafe world. I never got into playing those games and I am certainly not saying anything bad about the people who do play them, they just are not for me.  The spare time I do have is spent with my family and at my craft table.  My free time is limited and I want to spend it doing what I love best. Creating and sharing with people who are interested in what I have to share and say.

So with that, today’s card is definitely for the birds. If you can’t beat them, go find something else to do!

Under the Sea and back near there too!

Hello! I’m so happy to be back, I have to admit that was a bit longer then a cat nap. More like a long power nap. Which is just what I needed.  As it turns out we are moving back home, to California. In CA we lived near the Channel Islands, and we are moving back to our same house. I miss the salty smell of the ocean, the fresh produce at the farmers markets, but most of all, I miss my family and friends back home! As for Arizona, I did enjoy the tranquility of this little 5 light town.  And there will be much more to miss once we are gone. You know the saying:

“ don’t know what you got till it’s gone?”  So anyway in the midst of all our packing my Aunt Diane called to let me know she is going to be a grandma for the first time ever and she is super excited. She asked if I could make the invitations for the baby shower. All though I am super busy I just can’t say No to my Auntie. She is doing an Under the Sea themed shower and it’s a boy.  Here is what I came up with.


I just love the way they came out. Thanks to my daughter Tyla who helped me color in the images, She is a prisma & gamsol queen. We were able to finish these up and continue with our packing in no time.


Here is what we used:

Stamps by Our Craft Lounge: Bubbles

Making Memories DSP

Stock Grosgrain ribbon

Memento Ink

SU Tempting turquoise to ink around the edges

Spellbinders Labels eight

Prisma Colored pencils

Baby oil - instead of Odorless mineral spirits (since my daughter was helping I did not want harmful fumes around her)

Stickles in Icicle to add some shimmer on the star


I’m glad you stopped by and hopefully I will be back soon with something new  to show you ~ Angela

Taking a blog Cat Nap

I just want to let everyone know I will not be blogging for a bit. I have things that require my full attention & as much as I love blogging I simply won’t have the time. Thanks for understanding ~ Angela

IMG_6052 By the way, anyone want this adorable cat named Coby? J/K this is my daughter’s cat and she would kill me if I gave him away.

Easter Bunny and Friend

Wow wow wow, I can’t believe we are already in April! How time flies when we’re having fun. I just finished making my kids Easter baskets and I had these two fun creations to add. This is not something I created on my own I got the idea from

But are they not just too cute?  Boy and Girl, perfect for my 2.


I had to improvise as I did not have all the same tools Tammy used but I think they turned out A-OK none the less. If you are interested in trying to make this duo hop over to her blog, she’s got some fabulous creations.



I hope everyone has a fantastic holiday and we’ll be seeing you around. ~Angela
