More Completed Orders

I am loving this extra time to craft, here are a couple of the orders I have come up with and completed .Requested 3 Michigan, something for a 5 year old boy,Indianapolis Colts, something for her Aunt Rose that likes to read, a student in college studying to be a teacher, and a law student.

I decided to leave the top portion of Michigan off so it would not get caught on something and ripe off. The book is titled The Story of Rose, and the one in the file has a little stack of cards that I had written Docket, Case and Page on so if she wanted to write down the page she left off on she can do that, since all of these are bookmarks.

Now that I have those orders done and completed, I can work on more items for my next craft fair,coming up November 14th.

It seems like the things that I have been working on most have been bookmarks lately. But that is ok as long as I am working with paper and at my craft desk I am a happy girl.

Now to let you know in case I have not told you yet, I HAVE A FACEBOOK PAGE. Please make sure to stop over and visit my FaceBook page The Determined Scrapper.

Hope to update you with more soon. Hope everyone had a safe and fun Halloween.

You So Have To Check it Out. Don't you just love the new Blog layout. I was so tired of the same old layout and spending hours trying to figure out how to move things around, I was able to find Leelou Blogs and this super cute blog layout. I just had to have it. There are so many designers out there and I am more than willing to try something new, but at this time I do not have a lot of money to spend.

I have just quit my regular full time job to become a full time crafter. I have a ton of material here but I am sure that in a short time I will find that I do not have everything I need to get done what it takes to make a profit.

The goal is to get my name out there, to get the things done that I TRULY enjoy and love. My passion, my love, my peace. I have lived my life working for everyone else and can not do that anymore. Now is the time to make something work for me. My crafts make me happy and I can not wait to share them with everyone else.

I hope you enjoy the new blog layout and there will be plenty more out of me. I of course have been VERY busy working at my desk that I have not been able to post pictures of anything. I have been filling orders and trying to get a couple of things under my belt for the upcoming craft fairs.

Blessings to all. Talk with you soon.

Scrap your life, so the memories will last forever.

Filling Orders

Busy Busy as a Bee

I have been filling orders and working hard to fill orders as they are going in. My mom takes orders into work and when she comes home, she has new ones. I haven't had much time to complete new work for the upcoming craft fairs, but I will get it done. I am super excited I have just completed my last full day of work today. I will have more time to dedicate to my crafts and hopefully be able to turn this into my source of income. This is my love.

I have the GREATEST JOY when I am crafting!!!!! More to come soon.


More crafty stuff


 I have indeed been a busy bee. I am trying to get ready for 3 more craft shows before the end of the year on top of having another surgery next month. I am not totally sure how I am going to due this, but I will work it out. Just a quick post to show you some of the things I was working on. There were more pics, but didn't have time to change layout. I will try to post those a little later today.

Have a blessed day.



I can't believe it. My mom took her bookmark to work in one of the books that she was reading and that day I had an order for 6 bookmarks. So I started working on those.

When I was working on the bookmarks that were ordered, I designed some for them and then I thought, Hey I'm making some that others would like too so why not make more when cutting them out.
I used the 50 States cartridge to cut out the state of Ohio at 3.5 and I used Old West to cut out the OSU and welded them together using my Gypsy.

On the Cheerleader that she ordered, I used Everyday Paperdolls.
One of the other girls at her work also ordered 2 cat book marks and I still have to finish the 2nd one but this is the first one that I came up with using the Meow Cartridge.

These bookmarks are just a few of the things that I have been working on lately. I can't wait until I am done working and I can dedicate more time to crafting. I am thinking of setting up an Etsy shop down the road since I am in 4 more craft shows this year.
I had a BLAST at my first one and can not wait for the next. I just find such enjoyment from crafting. I can't wait to do it all the time.
