NEWSFLASH :D a card with an inspirational message.

Nov 30, 2007 Author: mytime | Filed under: Cards

Christine from ATS decided to release the New! Winter Playtime set and Playful Penguins TONIGHT at midnight! So you can view the sets and place a pre-order!!


Do you want to be on a design team? 

Well then here’s your chance!! I copy/pasted this from AmyR’s site

We’ve made some changes to the current All That Scraps Design Team – all the members currently on the team will be staying on with us until September 2008 and are now Senior Design Team Members.

However we’ve decided to have another All That Scraps team and are looking for 6 new people to join! It’s a 3-month stint officially starting January 1st and ending March 31st. So every 3 months I will be looking for 6 new members for our team!

To find out all the info and what you need to know to apply please go HERE <——click!!

Now on that note, I have a very important message! HINT: READ THE SENTIMENT


(set Starlight Starbright by Verve Visual I had to get the 2 latest releases, as they were SO COOL!!.)

Now MANY of you have emailed me, or commented, and expressed anxiety and low self worth, about applying to the design team. STOP THAT!!!! Stop thinking “Im not good enough”.

Have confidence. Put your best foot forward.

How can you achieve your goals if you don’t try?

I know you worry about putting yourself out there, that you will get rejected.

If you get nothing else from me, I hope you learn to GO FOR IT!!! Go after your dreams. How else are you going to succeed?

If you don’t try, then you definitely LOSE. If you lose, then hope you learn something. That “something” that will help you NEXT time. Maybe it wasn’t your time. There will be a window open somewhere, at some point, but not if you don’t look for it. It will not smack you on the head and say OPEN ME! You need to find your window.

This goes for ALL area’s of life.

Rejection STINKS! But you know what, it happens to EVERYONE.

So I encourage you to be not afraid, and put yourself out there.

Ok I’m getting off my soap box, and heading back to bed :C

Thanks so much for the supportive comments, and emails. It truly means SO MUCH to me. Words cannot say.

Till tomorrow-when I have our Saturday Sketch Challenge 😀

Who says!

mytime-penguin-cutie.jpg Hello

Who says you can’t get the FLU from the Flu shot?

Cause they need a SLAP! LOL!

Seriously. I took Alexa for her Chemo on Wednesday-about 11:30 am, while she was in Pain Free,  I got my FREE Flu Shot. She is doing well thanks for those who asked :D. Noah has yet another tummy bug-YUCK!

 Its really important that our family have this for Alexa’s well being. I haven’t gotten one in 3 years! I was so excited (yes excited), because then I didn’t have to make an appointment, drag 3 kids, pay a $15 co-pay, to then eventually somewhere between 10-12 hours later GET THE FLU!

Yes you read it. I have the FLU. Spent the day SICK in bed. I’m dying over here. By dying, I mean of BOREDOM. You all know me and sitting around doing nothing, and I,  are not FRIENDS.

I was so sad cause I didn’t do my penguin projects, or blog challenges NOTHING :C But I am hoping to feel better to get something done. Don’t worry, I still got “stuff”, just not what I wanted.

OK I also want to say that ” YES! I will do a tutorial on Lucky Sledding!”. Maybe Sunday-ish depending on how long this kicks around.

But never fear, I do still have penguins. Keep scrolling.

The BEST part was presenting the gifts I made this year (Alexa isn’t due back till the day after Christmas so I brought them now).

People were so sweet and appreciative! The most amazing thing! They had already hung up the snowman ornaments I made for them LAST year!!! They put him up in Nov. and keep him up till March’s end! Each one of them got one. I was so touched by the fact they still had him, and didn’t chuck him! LOL! They say they get loads of compliments on them 😀 YEAH!

And you can bet no sooner was the rice crispy treat container presented , it was opened and devoured 😀 It felt great.

The doctor’s went CRAZY for the monogram notecards 😀 More so than the card assortment I gave them last year (was my stamping that bad last year), with a altered Altoids tin and a Border’s gift card! So see, its the way to go!

Now to the penguin

mytime-pengin-sticks-can.jpg This is a Tea Tin, that I altered for the nurses in Pain Free! IGNORE the writing! I have horrific handwriting-that is why I have a personalized name stamp 😀

Now lookie what was inside!!!

mytime-penguin-sticks.jpg Yummy mint and caramel Hershey’s Sticks! I had to test a couple just to make sure they were worthy of giving. Yes, they were! This tin fit 2 boxes of the sticks.

 This is the penguin from the Wintertime Fun set. Is he not adorable? The paper I want to say is by Imaginese??? It inspired my design. You can see the close-up view of the top at the top of the post.

So it was a HIT!

I have so many holiday tips and ideas to share, so hope I can squeeze them ALL in over the next 26 days!

Sorry Im not all chipper-its hard to be when you feel so BLECH!!!!!!

Till tomorrow
