#ONELITTLEWORD with Ali Edwards

Hey friends! Day 9 into the new year! How y'all feeling!? 
Are we still digging the new year new you vibe?! I hope so! 
As you read in my last post I joined Ali Edwards One Little Word, and well I'm 
beyond excited to start this journey!  I am still so excited to be starting fresh and trying to get back to basics.  I wanted to show you what I was up to yesterday... let's go!

I downloaded this 2017 freebie from Kellie and it fit perfect for my start.


I added the word I chose from New Year's Eve - BE!~

I printed out the class lesson and dove right in! 


Gathered a few of my go to supplies!


Here is my word - no going back!



I really enjoyed printing the cards on beautiful heavy presentation paper. Nothing like a god thick quality cardstock!  


I then printed out a few pictures of myself and some of my favorite items. 
I am actually hoping my great great grandkids will thumb through this in years to come and really get to know me! 



aaand that's it folks... I wanted to just tell you that this project seems really interesting!  




The best part of this class is I get to tell my own story! Thank you Ali Edwards for taking my money!
No just kidding - thank you for thinking of this concept!

Peace, love and pretty paper!

Let's set some GOALS babes!

Hey babes it's 11:09 p.m. on New Years night ... and I don't know if i will make it past this blog post! So Happy New Year!!! It's been a super long day here in my home!  I just wanted to say thank you to you sweet girls who pop in and read about my crafty journey!

Before the night ends I want to speak my goals into existence here on my little ol piece of the world wide web! Here they go....

1. Be OPEN to recieve all of God's words and blessings. Without him I don't know how I made it to 43!
2. Be PRESENT in all the many activities and little moments my kids journey's take them on.
3. Be UPLIFTING to my wonderful hubby who bless him moves our family forward.
4. Be LOVING to my sweet grand baby girl. I mean isn't that what grammies do!? I am always so rushed that she is my sweet reminder that I get to just stop everything and enjoy her every little move.
5. Be ORGANIZED in my life and actually use one of my planners! :)
6. Be  HEALTHY and bring exercise back into my daily routine.
7. Be CREATIVE and nature the little girl in me who loves to make!

In doing this here I am hoping that one of these words jumps out at me as I will be participating in Ali Edwards One Little Word. It starts tomorrow and I am so excited to jump in and get back to basics. This word that you chose is a word you can reflect on all year long.


Lastly I leave you with some pictures of my day....

I did get crafty... made these tshirts with my cameo and heat press that I promise to use more in 2017

The little girls dad will be wearing this shirt...

Shopped for a whole bunch of sweets these girls wanted to bake tonight 


They are starting off with donuts!



and last but not least... had my daughter take pictures of me with her snap chat filters. I swear this Hello Kitty filter is going to make me download this app even though I'm too old to be on snap chat!! 


Well it's time!  I need to go fill these empty flutes with apple cider! Cheers to a happy crafty New Year!

Tell me what are some of your goals... how will you make 2017 awesome!!!??

Goodbye 2016 and Hello 2017!

Merry Everythang! 
As 2016 comes to an end I thought I would do a little recap of some of my favorite December traditions. 
First off if you have been following my blogs you know how much I love cute coffee mugs. So setting up a hot cocoa station for us to enjoy on the weekends is a must! 

I added to my cookie collection last year with lots of goodies from Pottery Barn intact my fav time to buy is the day after Christmas when all the goodies are on sale. I buy it at a dirt cheap price and box it up for the next year! Love having everything at my finger tips when we start baking. These cabinets are in my kitchen.  


Another favorite tradition is having my youngest write a letter to Santa. He is 7 and I love that he still believes! I know I have a few years so I cherish this.  

wait for it ... wait for it... Yes! DD!! Getting with my crafty girlfriends is so fun and it 
is so fun to see each others albums! 




December traditions also include making tamales! My sisters and I take turns hosting the tamale making party. This year I was up and we had a blast! 


Crismas Mimosas to start the day off!


While we wait for the tamales to cook the littles in our family make gingerbread houses.


This picture below shows my daughter with teens from her confirmation class. Every year go to Target and the teens are given a family. We split up and shop for our family in need. After we purchase gifts we head back to the church and wrap the gifts. We then box up food basket for more families in our community.  After all of our work is done we watch a Christmas movie. Us parents make hot chocolate and popcorn for the teens. This event lasts about 4 to 5 hours but its so worth it! I love watching my daughter serve our parish and give with an open heart. It's a night full of prayer and being filled with god's love.   


This one here is not really a tradition but it's my sons birthday! I love that we get to celebrate him and it's always included in my December Daily. TO BE HONEST I usually end my dd on this date :)  


Last but not least last minute Christmas shopping! We are always pressed for time but we get the job done! 


Ahhh and now a peek of my Christmas morning. The best sight... my tiny people.This picture was taken after breakfast and just before we opened presents.


After presents we rush over to my in-laws and then over to my sisters home. It's such a busy day!
This year's theme at my sisters was "pajama party".  Here's my nieces and I enjoying some tamales we made!


We also get a special visit from Santa. My grand baby was not a fan :) haha Maybe next year she will enjoy him!


As fast as December came in is as fast as it left! In fact my tree came down the day after Christmas!
I'm excited to start the new year with new hope! I am ready to receive all of God's blessing! 

Cheers to new memories and getting those pictures printed!!

Peace, love and pretty paper!

Papercakes DIY Advent!

Hey babes... today I am sharing an Advent calendar I made with the super cute digital files from Papercakes by Serenabee.com for my tween. We both loved the way it turned out! Check it out!

 
I started off printing of my digital files and using this ikea box I had at home. I chose it because it already came with dividers. I want to say these boxes are under $4.

I then measured and cut out my paper just enough to cover each section. I then added little embellishments. Those embellishments I printed on sticker sheets.  
 

 
My digital files once printed on card stock became a flip door for each compartment.
 

Wa-La! My daughter loved it!
 
Annnd that's how we celebrated the first twelve days of December!

Lumber Jack Cookie Exchange Party

Hello November!
 
This passed weekend my girlfriends and I decided to celebrate with a cookie exchange for my friend Liz's birthday! We had so much!
 

We each brought homemade cookies and decided we would make the décor warm and cozy.

 
Us girls love to just enjoy each other's company. We meet up every other month and craft all day. I mean like sun up until sun down or when Joann's craft store kicks us out.
We have been doing this for about 4 years now. It's pretty much tradition!
  

Here's my set up crafting while eating! :)
 
 
We also sang Happy Birthday to Liz!
 

Here's the fun part! Being silly! Just because you have adult kids doesn't mean your an oldie but goodie! 

 
The best part sharing so many laughs with these girls. I swear I am so happy they found me and let me join their tribe! 
 
 

So what do we craft you ask... anything! My craft was making this dash board and finally moving in to my Heidi Swapp planner!  
 
Thanks for stopping by friends! Where ever you live get your girls together and craft! JoAnn's craft store will let you sit in their class room for free!

Kenye West Pop Up Shop SF- Yezzy Yezzy!


Yo! Hey! We just left the Yeezy pop up in SF and let's just say it did not disappoint! 
My daughter and now me :) are major Kenye fans and we had to go check it out. I took a few pictures so you could experience it with us - let's go! 
Hers the line ... Total time in line was 45 minutes. The poor people behind us did not make it in! 





When you walked in they hand you a sheet and you mark exactly what you want. They allow three people in the line to enter as three leave. 

Here we are in front of the stores backdrop. 

And here's our girl with her $75 tee!! Yes you read right this merchandise was expensive. When we left my daughter said she wanted to marry it! Lol 


To see this  face right here smiling and so  happy was worth it! 

Jossie :)

Pink Typewriter - Say Wha!? Yasss!

Happy Friday Y'all!!
Look what my sweet friend Linda found! A NEW pink typewriter for sale!!
Yes people this is real and new!! I couldn't believe my eyes! Look at this beauty!

This right here is like everything! 

Ok so this what I found on Michael's website...

You ready for the price!? 

Yes- YALL - 2HUN!!! Ouch right!? 
Ok so I went to my nearest Michael's and yes they had one! 
I walked in like a boss! I'm like I have a 50% coupon right here ... Well wouldn't ya know it 
NO BUENO! 
I'm so sorry folks the good people at Mike's added this to the famous exclusion list!!!
I know I cried all the way out. 
So yeah I guess I have no choice but to use my old faithful.... My Bubblegum Pink typewriter. 
I bought it years ago off eBay and the keys do get stuck but maybe some WD-40 might help! 

On that note let's continue to drool together on this typewriter from We R Memory Keepers…
