Card Ideas Jan-Dec

Today I was organizing my craft area and found myself looking back at all the many cards I’ve made in the past 3 years.  I’ve mentioned before that card making is fun and relaxing for me and something I really enjoy.

 All of the housewives belong to a group of women that each month get together to have a fun night out.  We used to call this our “card club” because we would bring cards we made to exchange.  Jenn has made several posts sharing the cards we created and you can find those ideas here.  I still enjoy our girls night out but we no longer exchange cards which makes me sad sometimes.  It was a great outlet to be creative and each month the designs and techniques were endless.

I haven’t made a card for a while but when I do I search the internet for ideas to help me create it.  I thought it would be fun to share with you a calendar year of sorts of card ideas to help you create some beautiful cards too.

Buddy V’s Ristorante – Las Vegas, Nevada

Last week I got to spend a few days in Las Vegas for the Affiliate Summit West Conference.  I had a great time and learned so much but that post will be coming soon.
This post is all about Buddy V’s Ristorante.
Buddy V's Las VegasMy lovely ladies and I had the pleasure of being spoiled by the staff of Buddy V’s (I am totally cool with being spoiled as long as you don’t turn rotten in the process).  They all took the time to talk to us about their menu, each of the things they brought us to eat, and answer any questions we had.  I took so many pictures, I tried to limit them in this post and there are still many, you’ll forgive me right?…

Peanut Butter and Jelly Cupcakes

I’ve never been a big fan of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.  Mainly because I’m not a big jelly fan.  My kids on the other hand LOVE them!  I thought it would be fun to make a peanut butter and jelly cupcake to change things up a little.  Don’t worry, I won’t be sending these with them to school in place of a sandwich. :-)

I love how they turned out and my family thought they were awesome too!

Healthy packed lunch- diet food!

diet food

I don’t diet, which should be no surprise to those who know me!

However, my husband has decided that he wants to drop a few pounds. He is involved in a work competition and has set a goal to lose a certain amount. He is super competitive, so I have decided to help him by trying to cook more healthy food to eat….

Bathroom Makeover


I’m very excited to share with you the bathroom remodel we did over the Holidays.  I want to jump right to the finished pictures but to truly comprehend and appreciate all that we’ve done you need to see the before.  I keep saying we but Kelly is the master mind behind this project.  I’m so lucky to be married to a talented man who is able to do everything and anything needed to bring this bathroom out of the old and into the new.  He is so talented in tiling and it was exciting to pick the tile for the shower and floor together and to see it unfold as each day went on. He has already picked up 2 new jobs from showing people pictures of our finished bathroom.  Our project is 95% done (I need to order a blind for the window and a few crafty things I’m doing) but I’ve been dying to do a post to show you….

Valentine’s Day wood plaque

photo (17)January is flying by but I’ve also been getting excited for February. I’ve been having fun coming up with different ideas for decorating for Valentine’s Day.  I’ve seen different countdowns to Valentine’s Day but I wasn’t sure if I wanted to do that. I remembered I made a Halloween plaque that just had the number “31” on it and thought it would be fun to do one with the number 14. The directions are basically the same as the Halloween plaque I made here . The only difference is instead of regular scrapbook paper I used this burlap polka dot paper.
