#GIRLBOSS FOUNDATION - Are you a Bad Ass?

Yes, that's me and any other Bad Ass women doing her thing! A couple months ago I read the book #girlboss and from then on I have been on fire! I have so many ideas and need to let them out! So with that being said here is this blog post. My good friend Linda told me about The #girlboss-foundation. I knew I needed to apply. Sophia Amoruso, the Founder and CEO of Nasty Gal is helping women like me with making our dreams into a reality. If you remember my goal was to design tees & prints and I wanted to do it by September. I'm one month short but happy to report my progress. 

Here is a tee I designed in my writing that was screen printed and is ready to sell! You can find it here JossiePosie . I am beyond excited! I am a Projectlifer and what that means is I document my families life by using pictures. I am preserving my families memories. There is so many women who also document their families life and I hope to target that audience. 




I also plan to target the scrapbooking and planner community. Scrapbooking is such an ugly word and some how someone decided that is what we were called. I do not want to label myself as a "scrapbooker". Scrapbooker is so far from being cool. I hope to bring that "cool factor" with my tees to the market. I love pretty paper, a fancy planner and embellishments. My plan also includes on designing coffee mugs, washi tape, and hand bags. The planner and scrapbook community have been neglected for far too long. I believe my company can grow because so many women LOVE buying pretty stationary. I'm trying to bring glam meets nerd to my tshirt line. My Company is called  Jossie Posie and I currently sell vinyl designs & banners. 

Here are the items I need to make this dream a reality. 

I am hoping the #Girlboss Foundation can see my plans through. With or without them I am going to make it happen. Why you ask? I am a bad ass and I deserve this. My mother died when I was 5. I had no choice but to go sit with my father at his store. I saw the way he treated his customers. I put in the hard work with him. You see I was a girl boss already at the age of  5. My father passed away when I was 12. He was the hardest working man I know. I only know hard work. Watch me now :)

I was trying to keep it simple for this week and wanted to stop after 2 pages but somehow a letter and some words wanted out. Let's Do this!


Studio Calico killed it with this printed craft tape- that stuff is my fave. 


I took this photo because I love to take this walk. I enjoy the view and I know this is my turn around point on my walk. It feels good to get to this point. 

Sticking to the FALL theme hey why not FALL in love? 
Again that washi tape did me in!

Studio Calico's Class - Agenda

So I gave my Kate Spade a face-lift! Yes- she deserved it. I bought her about two years ago. Here she is now :) 


I was inspired by Studio Calico's Agenda class. The challenge was to show your favorite planner go to. I just bought this makeup bag from Forever 21 and it holds all my planner goodies nicely! If I am on the go and I can easily carry it in my bag along with my planner. Watch out I may get organized!

So this is what my week is lookin like- very busy! I am kind of crazy! I create work for myself. I'm not happy unless I'm crazy busy!!

Get Messy! My step by step!

So girls...... It's GET MESSY THA- THA- THURSDAY!!!

Bring it on
Ring the alarm
Don't stop now
Just be the champion
Work it hard like it's your profession
Watch out now
'Cause here it comes

Here comes the smasher
Here comes the master
Here comes the big beat
Big beat to blast ya
No time to quit now
Just time to get it now
Pick up what I'm putting down


OH ... SORRY! 

I was just thinking of this awesome song by my girl Britney Spears ... some think she is crazy but I find her to be a real human with real problems just like the rest of us!

So the song... It gets me fired up and THIS GROUP of Crafty Vixens also gets me fired up! Let's go shall we?

My first craft sales came when I designed wine glasses with black high heels and cut the persons name in vinyl. So I dug out this vinyl and new it was bad ass and needed to be in my journal.  This vinyl is almost three years old I knew i kept it for a reason. 



So this is my page and I want to show you what I did to get here.


Turned on my Cricut and found a font I liked and spelled out these words. A cricut is a die cutting machine. It's BOMB. I have carpel tunnel in both my hands and I would not be able to create if I did not have this machine to cut things out for me. 


I knew I wanted to use these items. I actually forced myself to use a wood veneer. Wood veneer and I just don't see eye to eye. I think it's just fear lol or um I can't comprehend wood on pretty paper?




Trimmed my paper with this awesome tool by Fiskars.


I then lined my papers to sit on top of each other.  From there its like a puzzle everything has its place. If you don't like something-you just move it. Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy!



So this page....... These are lyrics to my all time favorite song by Tove Lo mixed with a lil Bando!


Before you judge... I don't get high. I don't smoke marijuana. I just like the song ok? I think it's catchy. Do I agree with the stuff that's in her videos - no. She is an artist. Artists express themselves. I am attaching the video in case you would like to hear the song... don't forget close your eyes! Stay High- the Queen of the clouds

Please before you go ck out my messy sisters!

Crafts & Cocktails!

Yes, there is such a thing! My sweet friend's Linda , Liz and  I got together for a day of crafts. Liz invited us over and she said bring any project you would like. I knew I had been wanting to try the Tim Holtz Christmas trees with his ranger inks. But first - a selfie of our drinks!  

Here are my trees! 

Here is where their temporary home was.





 So I started out spraying and spraying! I think I used about three different pink inks before  I found the color I wanted. If you are wanting to know what finally did the trick it was a simple bottle of Recollection's  water color ink! A whopping $4 bottle of water color from Michael's! I sprayed until I got the color I wanted and let the trees dry for about 3 hours. I love the way they turned out!



Linda and Liz working on their projects. We made snow globes, painted and made wreaths! It was such fun to see what everyone was creating! We are currently challenging ourselves to use what we have instead of buying more. It's working out awesome!  


Cheers!



Oh instax - I love you! We laughed so hard. Not one picture came out but we didn't care! 


I could not have asked for a better bunch of friends. We all love pretty paper and we  could sit and talk for hours. So bust out your crafts and invite your friends over! It's my turn next to host and I can't wait to see these ladies again!

One of my dreams is to host events so that other ladies can come and have great fun! I found friendship with ladies who love what I love. 

Thanks for stopping by!
