Happy Sunday Everyone,
I hope you are having a good weekend.
It's time to announce the selection of this weeks' Linkup Party.

The challenge for week 5 was to use flowers. I really loved them all and it was really hard to select one for this week.
I had to call in help from Scott, and he made the selection this time. We both love Charlotte's watercolor postcard. It's just stunning. The colors and gold/rose gold embossing just makes the water coloring even more beautiful. I'm jealous of your watercoloring skills Charlotte and need to practice.

Here is her card. It's been added to our Pinterest page. Thanks Charlotte for participating and I sent you an email so I can send you the giveaway for this week.


Have a great rest of the weekend and I'll see you back here tomorrow for the next Linkup Party.

Tonic Studio's Nuvo Creative Pens

Hi Everyone,
Welcome back to the blog. I picked up these pens a few weeks ago when I saw them on sale and wanted to give them a try. I really enjoyed them and thought I would share some info.

They are great pens if you are new to working with alcohol markers, or trying to learn about blending. They are not as great as Copic's, but they still are a good quality. The price can't be beat either. Even though you can't refill them, the price of 3 pens in one set is as much as one single Copic marker.

Linkup Party #5 + a giveaway

Hi Everyone,
It's been a tad chilly here in NEPA. Last Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday it was near or over 90 degrees. Today (Sunday) its just about 55 degrees. I love fall, but I don't want to see all the pretty summer flowers go. Can you guess what the theme is for this week? Florals :)

Make something with a floral image; a card, a scrapbook page, a tag. That gives me an idea: I'm adding tags to my challenge idea list.

Here is my project for this week. (YAHOO! I have a project.)
My mother-in-law's birthday is today, and she loves flowers. Happy Birthday Audrey!


The flower I used is from a 2-step stamp set by AlteNew. I tried out a few different colors to stamp my floral image, but ended up loving Harvest Gold and Lemon Tart from Paper Trey Ink. I also used PTI's New Leaf and Prairie Grass for the leaves. I used a 3D textured embossing folder to create the woodgrain background and then wiped it with Antique Linen Distress Oxide ink. The color was a little too strong so I sprayed the background with water and dabbed off some of the ink to fade the color. The sentiment is from a Concord & 9th stamp set that has some great floral images as well. I have the supplies I used to make this card listed below.

If you are new to the Linkup Party you can find all the details HERE.
We're going to start doing some small giveaways to those selected as the featured project during the Sunday Roundup posts. This week's selection will receive this adorable square mandala stencil by Gina K Designs.



Let's see your projects for this week...

Linkup Party #4 Roundup

Hi Everyone,
Happy Sunday, Sorry I'm late posting today, lots of laundry, house cleaning and family time this weekend.

Welcome to this week's selection of our Anything Goes Linkup Party! for Make~Motivate~Connect.

I love Charlotte's card. If I'm correct I think I spot an elephant from a Circuit Cartridge :)



Thanks everyone for sharing your projects this week. I have a new theme ready for tomorrow. Can't wait to see what you have this week. Oh and I might have a small giveaway too.

Craft Room Tour 2018

Hi Everyone,
I'm so excited to share with you my renovated craft room. I'm feeling so grateful and blessed right now and am ready to jump into creating again. There are more photos and information about my room below this video. Enjoy.
 photo watchthevideo_zpsqqfngobh.png


and here are the other two videos I've done on organizing my cardstock and ink storage.

Cardstock Organization:

Ink Organization:


For the wall color we used Urban Raincoat by Behr. The lighting in my room makes it a soft shade of blue on sunny days and a light gray blue on rainy days.

My countertop is quartz and by Silestone called Eternal Calcacatta Gold. As soon as I saw it I knew it was meant for my craft room. 

The new desk/island measures 32" x 62". I just love the amount of space I now have. 

A view of my ink storage. Got to love all those colors. 


The cabinets are by HomeCrest and the paint color is called willow.
