FREE Organizing/Calendar Printables

This year I have the ultimate goal of getting all sorts of things organized. I have things in different rooms that need to be be out of this house, I have baby toys in Jovie’s room still, clothes in my closet that I haven’t looked at since we moved here and I really want to be able to budget better, manage the home better and not faff about so much or be so last minute. While I haven’t missed any important deadline, often times I’d have to be up until 5 a.m. to complete them. So, to help me accomplish

Freebie: Ornament + Embellish Circle Card

Hey, hey, I’ve been BUSY and in a great way…crafting AND using my toys! Today I have a card using Ashley Newell’s challenge, #2, and it’s a circle card with the following colors: white, blue, green and brown. This is what I came up with ((All but the ribbon from PapertreyInk. Ribbon was found at an antique store, 20 yrds for $3 and still made in the USA)): Pretty simple card and I used my Klik-N-Kut machine again. The ornament I made myself and again I am sharing the file (right click image and save as to save the jpeg

Freebie: Happy

First of all, this note’s for Amy: You happy now? You kept nagging me about this {::SMILES}. Second, this is a hybrid card with paper my Fee Jardine, Fly Little Birdie, at Sweet Shoppe Designs. I used some left over strips from this mini book that I’ve been working on (it’ll never get done it seems!). I did some sewing too and the sentiment is my handwriting. At least the “happy” part. The best part of this whole post… I am SHARING my handwriting with you!! See, Amy, I am doing something with my handwriting {::GRIN}. I can’t sell it…

Happy (belated) Chinese New Year!

Wow! I am a bad person. I totally forgot!! I think the only Chinese thing in me is the fact that I LOVE Chinese food. I think it was my great-great-great grandparents (although I wouldn’t be surprised if there needs to be another “great” added on to the above) who left China and being Indonesian-Chinese during colonial time in Indonesia my family’s more Dutch than Chinese. But, even so, we’ve always celebrated Chinese new year. In the U.S. I am far from any relative. The closest is in Chicago and we’ve never met but we love to email each other

Freebie: Paw Die-Cut + Keeping Up with My Goals

Before I start… if you have an electronic die-cut machine, scroll down. I have a freebie. If you stopped by a few weeks ago, I mentioned my 2009 goals and one is to do at least two challenges a week. Since then I’ve been pretty dang good! I have also met my “get two things published this year.” I have a Jan. Scrapbook Trends page published (it’s under the Showcase section) and I have another one this Feb. for an online publication called Bella Scraps. Both have been by accident so yes I’ve met my goal but it’s not like
