The Power of Positive Thinking!

Hey Guys! I have got some good news to share! I have manifested this pink cameo into my life! Ha!

I have been dreaming of this new machine by Theresa Collins exclusively sold at Micheals.
So a few posts back I made a wish list of the items I wanted for Christmas. I used the magic of the
The Secret Book. If you have never read this I swear by it! It's the power of positive thinking and manifesting what your heart desires!   I just pictured myself using this machine, I pictured myself cutting on it in my craftroom and wowsa it's here! It's all mine! My son gave me 200 dollars in a gift card for Micheals so that I could purchase this machine. He knew my machine was on the brink of not working. My brother in law gave me a 75 gift card  and my sister in law gave me 50 all in Micheals money for Christmas. I knew exactly what I was buying once I put my gift cards together. The machine is currently on sale for 229.00 and the regular price is 279.00. I brought this baby right home and it became a couch for these little baby dolls. I will open her up tonight!



I also wanted to share some more exciting news! Year after year I would apply for design teams and I would get turned down! It was sad. Like I truly would be left feeling like my work was not good ENOUGH!? I would tell my friends please slap me if I say I am applying for another DT! I would get picked to be guest designers but never made a team. Well the good ol universe heard me! 

I got offered to work with The Wandering Planners! Here is my schedule for 2019! I will be visiting these States and being able to share my love of planning with so many planner girls! I am so excited and feel so blessed to have been chosen! 

Our first show for 2019 is in Texas! I can't wait! Actually I really can't believe it's true! This is so much more than what I have ever asked for!

This was the first show I attended last summer in Arizona. I had a blast! Lots of hard work but so worth it! I got to meet Richard Garay and his beautiful wife Gabby!


Here is a little interesting fact I read today and wanted to share with you:

A study conducted at Dominican University in California showed that people who wrote down their goals had 33% more success in achieving them than those who just thought about their goals.

Thanks for reading if you made it this far!

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!

Share your goals with me I would love to know what you are going to be focusing on in the next year! Don't be shy!

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 :)

My memorydex card  





This challenge was fun and forced me to use my stash!

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!
If you would like check out last years friendsgiving here ya go: Friendsgiving 2017

a lil fun here on my IG too: #jossieposie4

Wandering Planner stamps not just for planners!

I recently went to a Wandering Planners event in San Jose, California. 
I bought two stamp sets. I used this Nor Cal stamp set on these pages in my travelers notebook. I love the way the white ink bounces off the black pages. This travelers notebook is from my sweet friend Theresa: @mydocumentedlife shop.  So yes I probably could of used a better white pen but this jelly roll in white had to do.     

This is my little guy enjoying being back in school and reading. 




I used the Golden Gate bridge stamp in gold ink. Stay tuned for my next post on what happens in an actual Wandering Planner's event!

Happy Crafting!

DIY Disneyland Autograph Books!

 Hey friends! Howdy!

Today I am coming at you with some DIY autograph books. My niece asked me to make my other two nieces some books and to be honest I didnt want to punch holes and make minis. So I was on the hunt for some sort of notebook. BAM! Good ol Target came through! Disney had a line at Target and you can still find these there. I bought three and decided it I would call it a day!

Here is my vision that came to life!

I turned on my cameo and started cutting away!


I cut the lickey heads and minni bows too for the inside cover.  


From there I just cut up a Disney Say Cheese page from Echo Park and glued them randonmly in the notebooks.  

Did some stamping 




Added stickers from my stash 


Used supplies I would never use! Yay!



My inside cover....


The end page. 



and that's it folks! Simple very very simple and I love it! 
The mommies loved it too! 

I am positive you can do this with any notebook you find! 

Here is my YouTube  Vid!

First Day of School Layout!

Ok let me just start out by saying I never do this ... I took the photo, went home printed the photo then put it on a layout! Crazy right!?

Actually one more first for me---- I used my home printer!! I always print at Walgreens because i print photos in batches when they have a sale.

It's hit or miss with their quality but I do it for convienence because like they saying goes "aint no- body got time fo that!"

Here we go...

My boy.
I take the same photos of him every year.... walkin to school and we usually are late because I walk slow lol 

It's dark  I know but this is in my upstairs hallway and I was just so proud of myself for printing lol 
There you go---- my Canon and guess what I LOOOVED the quality! Why am I not printing at home!?    


Thanks for stopping by on this super short post but I am hoping to be more creative and post more! Long live BLOOOOOGS!!!

Then one day.... just minding my business walkin these thrift store isle and there is was staring at me. An old ugly maroon colored heavy duty vitage tape dispenser like from the 80's maybe?

I grabbed it like I had found GOLD! GOLD Y'all! Me!? Yes, ME!!! Yeeee HAW!


I thought no way I could turn into a pink beautiful tape dispenser but I did! Let's take a look at it shall we? 

                                     

This is so perfect to send out packages for Happy Mail and for Christmas wrapping sessions!

Here is my first coat... It was not loking good. I sanded it first so that the paint would stick and it sure did!
