Pretty in Pink Thank You Cards

That is what I like to call the Workshops Your Way® Mother's Day Cardmaking Kit (G1122).

It is so easy to use different stamp sets with these kits, making them so versatile.

The kit contains everything you need, except the ink, to complete 12 cards. This includes an awesome stamp set.

And again, you want to be sure to add a sentiment inside and a little surprise on the envelope. When your special someone receives a card from you, they will know it is special just by what you add to the envelope.

It is Valentine's Day and chocolate is on the mind! Here are a few of this month's birthday cards created using the retired Fundamental paper. Don't you love using up that stash!

Easy Like Sunday Morning

I learned what 'binge watching' a series means. Now that I stream TV, I find myself lost in the full run of a series. It is FUN and can be frustrating. Frustrating at finding a great Hulu, Amazon, Netflix series to only find out that it was cancelled at the end of a season and the final episode was a cliff hanger -- WHAT!

Some of my FAVs are Longmire, Frequency, Justified to name a few. Having a smart TV in the craft room makes for a FUN day of crafting and binge watching.

Another great thing, if you miss something, you can replay it!

What are some of your favorite series?

Easy Like Sunday Morning Thoughts for the Day

Do you make New Year's resolutions?

A few years ago, I read a blog post by Chris Brogan about picking three words to help guide you through the year. It was so much easier than making resolutions that I knew I would probably not keep.

This new idea also helped me to reflect on my strengths and weakness; what worked and what did not in the past. It also made me REALLY look to the future and what I wanted to achieve when picking these words.

This year one of my three words is CONSISTENT -- I am the world's worst procrastinator. It is not a good thing to be when running your own business. Of course, I told myself over and over, that I work better when under stress BUT that is not true. This year I wanted to be consistent in all aspects of my life and business.

Well, this year has started out LESS consistent than I planned. So, today I am reflecting on what it will take to be CONSISTENT. I will share more on my words and my journey through this year.

I thank you for being a follow…
