Simply Saturday

Creating a journal doesn't have to be complicated. As I mentioned previously I am doing the One Little Word this year. Doing a journal like this is totally new to me...and the idea of it was a little overwhelming. Both with keeping up on the journaling and with the results I'll get (change can be a little scary!). Someone in my group found some great posts for me and my word on Pinterest. So I printed them and put them in my journal. Here is one..
And the journaling above it is simply 1 Corinthians 13:13 - "And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love."

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Simply Saturday

Happy Saturday everyone! I just wanted to share a quick "re-purpose" I did. I wish I could say it was my idea but it's the idea of my friend Angie. I was the last one to my 2016 One Little Word class. We are making a spiral album for our 2016 word (which is for another post...). There was a thick cardboard ring inside the spiral to throw out. I mentioned it would be great to make something out of it but I had no clue what. That's when Angie pulled hers out and showed me how she covered it in washi tape and is using it to keep her craft mat. Soooo.....here is mine.

A quick re-purpose of something that was considered trash.

Thanks for staying by and be blessed!

Fun~day Friday #126

So our sponsors this week are Cutting Cafe and A Day for Daisies and our theme is Anything Goes! I love seeing how creative everyone gets with Anything Goes!
The challenge starts Friday, February 19th at 12:00 AM (eastern time) and ends Friday, February 26th at 6:00 PM (eastern time). Here is the chocolate holder I created using Heart Pocket cutting files from Cutting Cafe.

My Stickles didn't dry very well (it might have something to do with my touching it to see if it was still wet...oops..) so I do need to touch that up. The Brother Scan 'n Cut is still on my wish list so I did have to fussy cut this. But I can easily see myself making a lot of these to give out as little gifts once I have it. Oh...and a piece of the Ghirardelli chocolates fits inside nicely, but I broke down and ate the chocolate so it's not in the picture :)  Yup...it's been that kind of a week.

Simply Saturday

I hope everyone is enjoying their Saturday! I've spent the day being a little crafty. My mom goes for bloodwork every other week and the ladies there are just so sweet to her. So I wanted to give them a little thank you.
It's nothing fancy but there is a nice piece of the Ghirardelli dark chocolate inside. I've made 20 of them so there is enough for everyone in the office. I think they will like being remembered and thanked for their kindness.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a scrappy day!

The challenge starts Friday, February 12th at 12:00 AM (eastern time) and ends Friday, February 19th at 6:00 PM (eastern time).
Here is what I created using the Bugaboo Three Hearts digi.I used some old...but one of my absolute favorite...paper packs from Stampin' Up! On the inside the little heart is actually pink but it looks a purple in my scan.
