Get Messy An Art Journal ** A self portrait!

Hi my messy friends! ahhh yeah today is Get Messy Tha Tha Tha Thursday!
So this month's challenge was to journal who you are and to create a page about yourself without a photo.
I have got to admit this prompt was FUN! Let's go.......

So for my first journal page I used a Studio Calico project life card that I had been hoarding. The card says "here".I really love the card not only because it's gold but because I am so here. I am off of work right now and I am loving being a stay at home mom. I'm present with everything that surrounds me. I cherish every moment being home. So back to this page I sprayed gold color shine from Heidi Swapp with a stencil for the background.




Here is my page about myself without my picture. This page was so fun to make. I felt like a little kid cutting out pictures in magazines.

My love affair with VINYL!

Let's walk down memory lane shall we? On November 14, 2012, I wrote my first  blog post prompted by my love affair with vinyl. As most of you who know me or follow my crafty craziness know that the purchase of my first Cricut lead me to open up my shop Jossie Posie. I have been making wineglasses, sports tumblers and really anything I can get vinyl on! I can't believe it will be almost two years! Well let me just say it has been fun and it has shown me a lot about being a responsible shop owner.

So last night my last listing for my popular Little Mermaid  wineglass sold out. I am at a crossroad as to continue to list her again or not. I am in the process of brain storming different products to add to my shop. So today I just wanted to share a few characters that were added to the shop.










 

Vinyl layering has become so easy for me because I have had so much practice with it over the last two years. So there it is folks.......... my love affair with vinyl. 

To vinyl or to move on.... the struggle is real folks!

thanks for letting me vent and get my thoughts out there ...

Scrapbook Expo!

Chello....... today I am sharing some pictures from The Scrapbook Expo in Santa Clara, CA. If you have never gone - you must! Everytime I go I have tons of fun! A bunch of girls meet up and decorate our table and dress up to the theme of the night. The theme for this expo was "carnival" so the only thing that came to mind was clowns. So here is Linda  and I as crafty clowns! 
 





A picture of my set up at the expo. The two things I am loving now are these new Heidi Swapp  date stamp and mat. The mat is silicon and is heat resistant but not self healing. See that lil date stamp... I drove 45 minutes from home to pick it up. Geeze the things I do when I can not see straight!

 

 
Yikes....... let me not forget this amazing new kit by Heidi! If you use your 40% off coupon this kit comes down to 8 buckaroos- Not bad :)  it's so pretty in person and was perfect for my niece's baby shower. I finished 6 pages that day! 
 
 
Once I found my groove I was able to tune out the noise and get croppin. So there you have it a little peek into my day!

Goal: starting a buisness #girlboss (series 1)

Hi sweet bloggy friends.....

So one of my goals was to start a buisness. I would love to design prints, mugs and tees! I find myself reseraching this subject daily. I am reading books, taking classes and observing many girlbosses out their doing their thing. What's important to me is to be original.

With that in mind I thought I would share my Amazon Wish List .

In researcing these topics these are the tools I would need.
 
I do have a  laptop and printer that I currently use but I would love to put my hands on some new technology!  
 
So let me share what I have learned in case you too would like to start a buisness.
 
 
First off is to create your art.
Scan your art into photoshop where you can change colors & such.
Then you can modify your art by using the Wacom tablet's handheld pen.
Lastly, once you are happy with your design send it off to print!
 
It does not seem hard at all. I am looking forward to making designs in September once I am settled into being a stay at home mom :)
My last day of work - I know I know I keep mentioning it is August 15th. This is so scary for me. I have worked since I was 14! I'm looking forward to this next chapter in my life.
 
Remember where there is a will there is a way! Art makes my soul happy.
 
xoxo
