You Gotta Love PINK.....Right?

I don't really consider myself a girly girl....but lately I have been loving everything PINK ! If it is light pink, dark pink, hot pink... you name it, I LOVE IT!

I was surfing through some manufacturer blogs today scouting out more "wish list" items from CHA W and found this awesome PINK Craft Mat from Tattered Angels !

It is HUGE too.... 2' X 3'. I can hardly wait to get one of these for my very own!! It will look great on my craft table and be well used and loved too.

And the best part is that some of the proceeds from each sale go to Breast Cancer Research. How awesome is that !! If you spot these for sale anywhere PLEASE let me know where.

Happy Lazy Sunday Afternoon Everyone !

TA DA -- A Whole New Look !

Well, I have been restricted to the house for the past few days so I don't scare small children with my ugly eye surgery me, you wouldn't want to see it either. Let's just say, I could give Mrs. Frankenstein a run for the money in attracting Mr. Frankenstein. And I never realized that purple came in so many colors. LOL !! If everyone didn't already know that I have the BEST DH IN THE WORLD WHO ADORES might be easy to claim spouse abuse if you saw the shiner I have now.

So, what all this means is that I had some time on my hands and decided to give my blog a MUCH NEEDED BLOG FACE LIFT. After searching high and low for the just the right look, I found the perfect place to get some cool background art that I abolutely loved....

I found it at House of 3 - the cool new digital scrapbook site by Heidi Swapp, Rhonna Farrer and Janet Hopkins. Not only have these three ladies put together some amazing blog candy, they are going to have digital kits, cool projects, WALL ART, tutorials and an Inspiration spot. I can hardly wait to see all this as the roll it out over the next few weeks.

You can check it out here:

Let's just say I was so inspired after I found wonderful "blog face lift" worthy designs in their Blog Couture section that it was all I could do to contain myself from purchasing and downloading them all !! Truly, if you are a blogger YOU GOTTA check out their new site and see for yourself.

And the best part is that their tutorial section had directions even the "digitally,technically impaired" like myself could follow along and create the beauty you see surrounding yourself now on my blog!

Woohooo....I wish getting a "face lift" for myself was this easy !

Leave me a comment and let me know how you like the "new face" of my blog.

BTW -I am in no way associated with these talented ladies other than a big admirer of their work, including this latest endeavor of House of 3.

TOP FAV from CHA !!!

Well the weekend just flew by I was so busy. First of all, CHA (Craft and Hobby Association) Show started last week and ended this weekend so I spent a lot of time drooling over all the new products from some of my favorite companies. I was very sad to not be there this year since I have so enjoyed going in the past. Now that life has settled down, maybe I can try out again for another manufacturer design team and work the show again next time.

Some of my absolute favorite companies came out with some items I have got to get my hands on soon ! Besides the cool new stuff from Queen & Company I posted before, hands down my favorite of all was Maya Road !

Maya Road totally ROCKS once again ! I have such wonderful visions of what I can create with these new items:.

First off, the textures of leather and velvet on their new FLOWER BLOOMS just beg to be touched and is bound to add that extra special oooomph to my projects - all I can think when I see these is the word "LUSCIOUS !"

These totally new Vintage style PEARL PINS are definitely a must have ! And they even come in green leaves hard too choose so I must have BOTH !!

I always have loved the wonderful TRIMS Maya Road comes out with but OH MY....these new POM POM trims are gonna look mighty good on my layouts and mini books, don't you think ? Such rich colors, YUMMY !

and there are lots of new FUN SHAPED SHEERS - theses little owls are so dang cute ! And will come home to roost on my Rice OWLS mini book I am working on right now.... HOOT loves YOU !!! HOOT, HOOT !

I am just dying to get my hot little designer hands on some of their new really CLEVER LAYERED CHIPBOARD ALBUMS like this one....

There are many other wonderful things to share but DH is kinda of expecting me to get dinner on the table. Will post more another time. Good day and happy scrapping to you all !
(P.S. The pics are courtsey of the Maya Road Blog post)
