Pearls of Wisdom!!

Happy Monday my friends!  While you are reading this I will either be at the airport at 4 am or flying in the air to Chicago on my way to another CHA!  So excited to see everyone and see new goodies…always extremely exhausting though.  I call it the CHA Hangover when you get home, you’ve had a great time, you haven’t slept, you probably ate things you usually don’t and your feet and legs feel like they are gonna fall off and you are so tired you can’t see straight…yep that’s a CHA Hangover LOL!  I have pretty much every hour planned with something…working at Angie Hunt’s “Little Darlings Booth (with my friends Ruby, Angie, & Mindy) or coloring with Jeanne Streiff at Impression Obsession with the Shinhan Markers or walking the floor or having meetings.  Then there are the lunches and the pre-dinners, the dinners, then the dessert & drinks each night…oy vey…and somewhere around midnite or 1 am you might be lucky to fall asleep LOL!  But I have NO roomies to keep me up (no snoring, no waking at 3 am…as much as I luv em I found I have to have quiet and some rest or I am miserable & sick)…so I have a corner suite to myself to pass out in every night Winking smile  I will be posting on Facebook with pictures of people and new products so you can follow along with me there as I probably won’t have any time for a new blog post till I get home!  So if you are gonna be at CHA..come find me…say hello as I’d love to meet you!  And yes let’s all pray that Suzanne has “FEW” travel stories…nice, quiet flights, no meanie TSA agents, no falling, and basically no harming of myself LMBO…that’s right I’m keepin’ it boring this time…..errrrr……I hope….yeah right who am I kiddin’ hahahahahaha!

I’m actually hoping for a QUIET plane ride cuz my family is trying to drive me nuts…literally…well then again when aren’t they.  My son leaves on Tuesday for Redskins football camp (overnight for the week) and between being a nervous wreck that he’ll get hurt and that hubby won’t remember stuff, I’m a ball of nerves.  I have him all packed up and lists for them and went over everything…but what scares me is---that blank look they both give me when I talk.  I’m never sure if anything is getting thru KWIM…it drives me nutters I tell ya!  Then I get told I’m too Type-A and I need to calm down…well I’m so sorry…I am packing for my trip, getting the household in order and doing endless laundry AND getting Riley ready for his camp with NO HELP!  But I’m done…I did everything I could…its now in their hands…god help us all LOL…so let’s hope he gets there with everything and that no one forgets anything.  Mark that up with trying to coordinate Alexa’s schedule of babysitting and such since she’ll be home alone…yeah a teen home alone…not good…so I’ve packed her with stuff to do this week including babysitting LOL.  So I’m BEAT already and I haven’t even made it to CHA yet…this bodes….well it bodes something, not sure what <snort>!  So this Type A mama is off the clock and headed to CHA to see friends, work and have some fun….yahooooooo!!

Pearls of Wisdom!!


So today the Magnolia-licious DT has a fun Blog Hop planned called “Hip-2-Not-Be-Squared”…so no regular square or rectangular shaped cards allowed. They have to be fun sized and shaped! You can find all the hop details at the Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog AND how to join in on the fun with us to win!  I chose to use a newer stamp called “Pearl Tilda“ (find the mini version here) and I decided to go all very frilly & feminine with this card…perfect for a lil’ girl or big girl in your life!

BTW…have you see the new Magnolia Turning Leaves stamps that are up for pre-order now at Magnolia-licious?  If not, you better hurry on over cuz they are CA-UTE!!



I cut a clam-shell from my Silhouette Cameo machine out of pink cardstock…the image I used cut a frame and detail-work and then I glued that onto a piece of pink cardstock for more texture…then put both on a regular square card base that I trimmed to match the shell shape.  I inked all the edges for a distressed look and added some pearls and stickles for pretty bling.  I cut a few mats out of cream cardstock with my Spellbinders, embossed both and inked them as well for the background behind the main image. “Pearl Tilda” got mounted on top of a sea of tulle…that I burned with a match, it curls and distresses the tulle and is so MUCH fun to do hahaha!  The swirly scrolls are a Memory Box die that I also inked and added Stickles to.


She got colored with Copics: R20,R21, Colorless Blender/ E11,E00 / YR20,E50,E35 /E44,E43,E42,E40.  Then I stickled her tail-fin, her bikini top and her cute friend’s fins too.  I added a few small pearls to her hair in place of coloring what was drawn there for more bling.

Ok that’s it for me…now you need to hop on over to my fab friend Janiel’s Blog to continue on the hop!!

  37. Hello! I realize this is kind of off-topic however I needed to ask. Does operating a well-established website like yours require a massive amount work? I am completely new to blogging but I do write in my diary every day. I'd like to start a blog so I will be able to share my experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips for new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!
