Goals........ 2019 here we come!

So we are coming up on 2019 - can you believe it!? I mean time is just flying!
I have had my hours changed at work and I only take a half hour for lunch so my days seem so long.
I am a Deputy Clerk for the State Court and have been in this position for 15 years. Prior to being a Deputy Clerk I was a Courtroom Clerk. I have got 22 years of being in a court room setting and let me tell you I am feeling all 22 years of it mentally and physically!

So I say this to say I have been in a rut here. The rut comes from management! I can not express here all that I have gone through but trust me it has been insane. What I can say is the way that I am feeling will stop.

I making it my TOP goal!

Goal Numero Uno: I am letting this office go and giving it to GOD. I will not stress about this office and the people who are in it. I will come here and be free. I will do my job to the best of my ability and go home.

Numero Dos: Being good to myself. I only have this body so I need to continue to eat better. I have been on journey to get fit but I need to turn it around and say I want to get healthy. I have had carpel tunnel surgery in both hands and am considered a percentage disabled. So I really need to focus on being good to my body and these hands.

Numero Tres:   Manage my crafty time better. I am always burning the midnight oil trying to fit in my crafts. I will have to figure this one out? How do you manage your crafty time? I would love to know!

Last but not least: Learn photo shop! I say this every year. I would love to have better pictures for my family albums and scrapbook layouts.

If you made it this far... thanks for listening to me!

Christmas Crafty Challenge!

Crafts, crafts and more crafts! 

Today I am sharing a Christmas exchange I had with my besties. 
The challenge: One memorydex, one wand and one shaker item

I packaged mine in these recollection picture store cases. 
Added this iron on #happymail that they could iron on to any fabric tote or pouch. 

         Here is my wand! First time folding strips of paper and um it was kinda hard! hahaha
Used the merry Days collection for the wand and embellies.

Made this paperclip with the star tag from the collection.

this stencil I actually picked up for myself :)
oh and below is my shaker pocket!

My memorydex card  

This challenge was fun and forced me to use my stash! 
Thanks for reading through my blog!

Friendsgiving 2018

My friends and I enjoyed our #friendsgiving over the weekend. It had been a while since we got together so this time around it felt so special. I can not recommend this enough to anyone who will listen to me. Go find your tribe. 

Backstory: I got into scrapbooking and making things with my cricut machine but didn't have any friends or crafty friends! I have been a mom all my life it seems and well friends have moved or we just didn't keep in touch. I have 8 sisters and basically they are all my friends so I didn't think I needed any friends. 

So anyway I started looking for craft classes or events in my area and for the most part would just go alone. I wanted to learn the craft but what I didn't realize  was I was score on some pretty amazing friends!  I have learned so much from these two ladies. These girls have been crafting like forever!

So these girls let me in their tribe and I am ever so thankful!
I pretty much share my life with them! There is not a day goes by that we don't communicate. It's like magic! :)

Mugs made by my cameo! 

I am so blessed and thankful!
