Time to spare

Finally! I know it's been a couple days since my last post. So much for all those challenges I had planned to do lol. I've had one busy week! It started two Sundays ago when I got a message about making a custom Harry Potter order. I had a blast creating it and I definitely think you'll see it eventually on the shop (can always email me for one in the meantime). Here it is finished:

How cool is it! I even want one! I haven't worked too much on anything else. I had worked on that order till near the end of the week. Then it was onto prepping for Rally Day at church. Saturday was spent baking 6 dozen cupcakes, homemade frosting and rice krispie treats. Sunday was the big day and spent seven hours all together at church. I was beat so no real mojo. I did make a few bookmarks but that was it.

Other news is the giveaway will start Thursday so get ready! That's about all I have left to report. Happy Crafting!!

Blast from the past challenge

What an easy challenge, Meljens challenge this week is to show the first card you made using their digital stamps. I think this was my first one. I had done a bunch last year at fair time. I had used the little donkey freebie. He's certainly one of my favorites to use!

Giveaway update: It will be starting next week and I've reached over 10 new fans on the Facebook page for the shop so another item has been added. Also nearing 1,000 views so if it reaches that by the time I post another will be added. Keep it up! Make sure you become a follower of both the blog and Facebook page (both links to do so on the right side of the page). Each will count towards another item being added!

StampFairy School Challenge

Another card challenge done! This one is for Stamp Fairy's "It's back to school" challenge. I bought their Lenny one to use for it. He is too cute!!! The sentiment was one of their freebies they had.


Actually going to be using this card for my son's teacher. I always give his teacher a small gift at the start of the school year. I'm thinking coupon holder and a few other small things. Plus going to throw in a few packets of pens that with my awesome coupon skills have gotten for free :)

Well off to work on more projects! Happy Crafting!

Good to be on Facebook

So in case you haven't heard there's a Facebook page for the shop now. Even better is if you become a fan, you get the coupon code. Here is the link for the page (also on the sidebar) My Thoughts Exactly Facebook

Also if you become a fan, or a follower on here it will help add more items to the Giveaway in about a week. Currently only one fan/follower away from one being added! Though if you remember the post a few weeks ago with the sneak peek, I'm actually changing which item it will be. I'm using that item for a donation I have to do for a fair. Going to decide this weekend which item will be replacing it.

So make sure you pass along the news to your friends and family to join so the giveaway will be bigger!!

Happy Crafting!

Doodle Pantry Challenge

Did another challenge! This time it's for Doodle Pantry. It was a easy one, just had to use one of their images. I was tempted to make another one of the thinking of you cards I made a few weeks ago but decided to use the happy bird instead. Here it is:

Turn the page

 Bookmarks definitely seemed to be the main theme for my projects this weekend. I've made over twenty of them and have way more ready to be made. Some you'll find now in the shop like these:

The two directly above are made from pages of used books and the other two are made from photos that I've taken myself. The photo ones are the ones I have the most of. I have even made a few with a clear sheet layer with bible verses on them. Those will be up soon. Now for sneak peek of more that I've finished and
will soon see in the shop.

My other project I worked on were some magnets,some made from pictures from used books and the others from digital sheets that I've recently bought. These will be up later today and this week.

I hope you enjoy all my new creations. Remember if you see something you like on here but it's not on the shop, just message me and I'll post it for you. Happy Crafting!

Giveaway news and more

The giveaway has been delayed. I had hoped to start it next week but I got alot going on here with getting my son ready for school, going to be a 2nd grader this year. Where does the time go! But have no fear, it will be started shortly after. REMEMBER: The more followers and/or fans I get before it starts, the more items there will be! Currently 6 away from an item being added.

Good news is today I've posted 11 new items on the shop! It has been super rainy the past few days so I haven't been able to take pictures. Finally today we have sunshine so I was able to take alot of pictures. Here are just a few of the new items:

Lastly I've been slacking on getting stuff done. It seems my motivation dried up with the fair being over and no immediate one to work one. I have started some journals, but so far only got the bindings painted. I'll be working on them again today so hopefully by next week I'll have a few of them posted as well. Hope you enjoy all the new items, and Happy Crafting!
