What a crazy week. Well at least, I think I might have lost what mind I had left. 

There have been a ton of things going on around my house. The craziness started when my daughter had her braces off in sort of an emergency. It just wasn't planned yet to come off, but after going to the dentist she insisted that they be removed as her gums were starting to grow over her braces.She has had her braces for 4 years due to all the issues she has with her jaw. So now we get to see what WONDERFUL work they did after all these years.  

Can you believe this is the same child....
Her teeth look wonderful, I'm so excited for her. 

I had another garage sale with some of my Besties, Candy, Marla and Marie. And then I had a craft show on Saturday.Sad to say I made more money at the garage sale that I was not even at then the craft show I sat at all day. 

It was that dead..... That is probably because it was SO NICE OUTSIDE.

So on with this weeks WOYWW. 

I have been working on my CTMH paperwork and trying to get all my groupies to sign up with me. Well at least get signed up for Hostess of the Month Club and Virtual Kit Club. If you are interested in joining, just send me a message and I would love to explain. I have also been working away at getting my business degrees from CTMH. I have already received my Bachelors and I have only been in it for a week. Yay me.

And I finally have my camera set up so I can get my YouTube videos going again. Not that it took very long, but I promised I would get some done. Keep your eyes peeled for some new stuff coming from my workdesk. 

Well for now I must bid ado as I really need to get busy working on crafty stuff. 

Blog with you soon.

WOYWW 154 and so much more!!!

Oh my goodness, again, like every week I can not believe it is that time again. I have been so busy I think my head is going to start spinning off. I have had two more craft shows, received my kit from CTMH, and received my design team supplies for Scrap Happy Ohio. I just don't know if I will be able to keep them all straight. But I will do my best. 

I will be posting for my Design Team things every other week and I will continue to do my WOYWW each week. I also plan on adding in a couple of clubs for my Close to My Heart business, so make sure to stay tuned. 

I also have a couple things lined up that when I reach 250 likes on Facebook, 1000 followers on YouTube, and 250 followers on my blog, there will be a give away. Don't forget to stop by my CTMH website for shopping and additional chances to get in on the drawing. For every order placed between now and the time those numbers are reached, your name will go in to the drawing that number of times. So to clarify - 1 entry for Facebook Like, 1 for YouTube follower, 1 for Blog follower and 1 for every order placed on CTMH website. I will update with the prize the closer we get. It should include gift certificate, stamps, and a couple other things.

So on with whats on my workspace......

This is just some of the stuff from Mega Meet. I forgot to show you.

and this

this too.


This is what my desk looks like right now, I'm finally getting ready to do an updated YouTube video.

and the Design Team stuff has carried over to the floor.

I am really starting to love my life again. Hope you enjoy your day and hoping from WOYWW to another. See you soon.




I am now one of Close to My Heart's newest consultants. I just signed my agreement and have started posting things on my website. I will be updating everything over the next couple days, but should you have any questions prior to please advise. 

I am so excited to share all the wonderful product that Close to My Heart carries and to show you how to use all the items.

Keep in touch to see new projects and events coming up. 

And as always you are able to shop directly online. 

Would you like to be May's Hostess of the month? I will be giving one lucky person the title and benefits of hostess at the end of the month. 

This hostess will be awarded the benefits based on the total sales for the reminder of the month. All sales made on my website under the May Club on the right hand side or with me personally by May 29, will close May Club May 31. Please call of email with questions regarding this. The hostess will be chosen based on the amount of purchases placed. Every order placed will get your name placed in the drawing. I will chose the hostess by numbering each name and placing those numbers in to chose the hostess. 



I have lost track we could be at 152 but I've been so busy I've completely lost track. This week I'm working on wedding cards for the upcoming two craft shows I have. I have 1 friday and 1 saturday plus I'm going to MEGA MEET on Thursday I can't wait! Make sure to stop by Scrap Happy Ohio booth they always have wonderful things!
I attended my first class meeting last night which I could of done a little better with. Other people need to learn how to have better constructive criticism. Sharing and learning new techniques out of the ordinary and out of the old, is a great way to branch out and learn. But I guess some people like to be stuck in the past.
I hope this is making sense I'm doing the entire post through my phone. I will share more later this afternoon an update information as needed have a wonderful day.



I am so excited I have been asked to be on a WONDERFUL design team for my FAVORITE scrappy store.

It is so much my favorite store that I will drive an hour one way just to see and visit with Susie and her wonderful crew. 

Yesterday was a busy day working at the Scrap Happy store getting ready for Mega Meet.  I can't wait to help again. I will see you all there on Thursday. I can't wait since this is my first trip to Mega Meet. If you are going to Mega Meet make sure to stop and mention that you had heard about their store from The Determined Scrapper.

I will keep everyone updated on all the Scrap Happy product that is available and shortly you will be able to purchase all the same materials ONLINE. Currently you are able to purchase most items by checking out their store

Please keep up to date with all the happenings here or SH Blog or Life on the Crafty Side 


Craft Show

Oh boy is it Windy!! I'm attending my first outdoor show. It would be wonderful minus the WIND.



I know I have been saying this every week lately, but really could it be Wednesday again ALREADY? I have been so busy that I have not even had a chance to read through all my blogs. Hopefully I will get though them later today. I am so busy with craft shows and garage sales and custom orders that one would think it is later in the year. I hope that is a good sign.

I did this card last night, isn't it cute???

So yesterday was a VERY eventful day. My son has been growing his hair for 5+ years planning on going into the military. Long story there, but he is medically disqualified from all branches. But he made a promise to all of his friends at school that on May 1, of his Senior year he was going to cut it all off.

 And he did. He looks so good with short hair. Here are a few pictures from the event. I was the lucky one to cut the ponytail that was donated to locks of love.

So I have some very EXCITING NEWS!!! I am  going to become a Close to My Heart Consultant in May. I have been considering it and made a deal with my dh and we have agreed so it will be!!! YAY! I am so excited. I will keep you up dated, but I will be starting card kits and other kits each month. I will also start workshops at my house for a stamp club each month. Oh the thoughts going through my head and the planning is all so wonderful. 

So now on with the WOYWW with Julia's Stamping Ground. For those of you that are not aware of what this is, it is a weekly update of your workspace to share with others and get to meet other crafters. Take a tour around by visiting Julia's and have fun.

So that is part of my week. Hope you enjoy yours and I will see you around over the next week.
