What Happened to Christmas!

 What Time is it?  It's Journey Time!!

It's TIME to find out what happened to Christmas!  I brought you all up-to-date on my last post, so you know I wasn't able to do videos or much posting... but I was able to CREATE for Christmas!!  After all CREATIVE Journeys seem to 'take you away!'  And I truly needed that last month.  So while we try and get everything back together again.. I thought I would post some projects we did at my workshops.

This little gift card holder is cute and simple!  A great way to make your not-so-personal gift card, into a hand crafted gift!  I'll have the videos up before NEXT Christmas... lol!  Luckily the Pine Cone dies are NOT retiring!  I really love playing with them... here is a fun swing card using the Pine Cone dies and Here You Goat!

Credit to Jennifer McGuirre!  I watched a video where she used a Tim Holtz reindeer on a card just like this... Immediately I KNEW I had to use my goats!  We do after all have ten adorable GOATS on our property that we just adore!  They just won't sit still while I put the fake antlers on them!  There is however, a penny on the back of the goat's behind... lol... the weight helps him swing back and forth.  

I will post again once my tutorial is uploaded!

So I hope you enjoyed this couple of Christmas cards... I think maybe this year I should start NOW... because 'last minute' always seems to find ME!!  What about YOU?

Hope you enjoyed this little Creative Journey.... 

UPDATE:  PDF Instructions New Horizons Center Step PDF Tutorial 

Have you seen the On the Horizon bundle in the new mini catalog??? Not only is it amazing but it also qualifies you for the FREE Simply Marbleous DSP in the new Sale-A-Bration
catalogue which is used for the sky, water and more!!

Will have the video tutorial posted on my YouTube channel this week. just in time for you to play if you order now!

I just love this bundle and there is so much more in the new January - June mini catalog! You can view it by clicking the picture in the right hand column.

I know I will be posting LOTS of adorable projects in the upcoming months!

Happy New Year!

 It's been a while!!  2021 was a bit harsh to our family!!  First COVID then just when we thought we were back on our feet - OUR BARN BURNED DOWN!

So at midnight New Year's Eve we opened ALL the doors and windows and faithfully ushered 2021 OUT!!  LOL!!  We are EXCITED for 2022!

We are SO grateful, that the fire was contained to our barn because the winds that week were so fierce the utility company shut off everyone's electricity on Thanksgiving Day!!  But God is so good, the day our fire started the winds were completely still!  My 'scrapshack' is only 20 feet from the huge barn which burned to the ground!  With the windows OPEN!  

Of course we are also grateful it did not spread to our home and the neighboring homes!

With that said... there is no electricity in my shop yet, so I have not been able to post any new projects or videos!  But I promise to catch up very soon!

Now is the perfect time to take a relaxing, yet exciting JOURNEY through Stampin' UP! January - June Mini catalog AND the Sale-A-Bration catalog located to the right on the side bar!  

We are hoping for electricity this week and videos will begin again!  Meanwhile take a peek at some of my previous Journey Time Videos!
