           Apparently I think of wacky ideas late at night! Here is this weeks, as I sat here in my living room watching Glee (best show ever!) I started thinking how cute it would be to have card designed just around my fav. show!  I know my sister-in-law would love every card I would make and so many other Glee Lovers.  
           I hope I don't break any legal rules, might have to look that up.  But, Decided that every Friday will be GLEE-TASTIC FRIDAYS!  I will post a project/card that is solely inspired by that weeks Glee Episode!  I already can think of so many!  Making it Friday cause well I have my Halloween Project Mondays this month, and Tuesday's Glee airs plus I haves school so I can not usually watch it till wed, but Wednesday's is all about the TA-TA's this month,  Friday's just seem to work best!
          Stayed tuned! I will be finishing my video tomorrow, and bling up my notebook.  I am loving this new blog thing! Hope you all are enjoying my blogness as well and please spread the word, I will be looking forward to seeing my numbers increase and ready to CELEBRATE! 

Wonderful Wednesday Project

October is all about the CHA-CHA's!
Here is a quick tutorial, which will have to be two parts because I lack at the whole editing thing right now!!! So, here it is all about the Cha-Cha's project, I covered a composition notebook with my Big Ideas paper.
Enjoy Crafters!!!

Creative Memories!

Okay, last Sunday I joined Creative Memories as a new consultant!  I am one that feels the need to reach my goals and quickly, I have already signed up one new consultant, now my goal is to sell $500 in products to hit my first goal as a new consultant!
So, I have decided that I will be giving away a nice prize pack to one lucky person! Here is how you get in the drawing!! 
First- Go to my website and purchase a product, please note; it does not have to be a big item any purchase counts! Including the Digital Center- Need pictures well Creative Memories Digital Center has better quality pictures than most of the popular sites that mail pictures directly to your house! 
Second-Spread the Word! With the new digital Age, I can have clients all over, so if you know someone who loves to scrapbook or is looking for a way to make extra $$$ please send them my way, I will always reward the messenger! Plus every referral puts your name in the drawing again!
Finally- If you are the San Antonio area I would love to do a home party for you or come out to a crop night! Always fun times to be had at one of the Cricutkateers events!
Here are all the sites!
