More SPOOKY stuff going on…………

Sep 7, 2008 Author: mytime | Filed under: Cards



How can you resist LUCKY?! OMW! He is adorable. This card was suppose to be posted yesterday but I ended up crazy busy with the kids, so I am posting it today. It uses the Spooky Spooky Spooky & the Sugarplum Spooky Scenes  set by C.C. Designs. That set will be released on the 9th!!

I just stamped my fence in white and colored it randomly with a white marker. The Ghost & Lucky are 3 D. This was another bad mojo day. I didn’t have any great Halloween paper, which was a huge bummer, so this was sort of plain jane. I just worked with it and couldn’t make it go anywhere else.

Sugarplum Halloween

This set is super duper cute. It had some great elements in it as well-like the different signs.

This is a tunnel card. I believe that is what it is called. The witch is suppose to be flying in the sky, across the moon. Great concept-awful execution. But that is what I got :C

This was made on my BAD mojo day. I truly do not work well under stress. I am a PLANNER. I don’t feel creative when I am under a tight deadline, and it puts me into shut-down mode. I usually have my projects done in advance, but sometimes it just doesn’t get to work that way. Well that puts my OCD into a bad place, and I create crap.

ANYWAY we all have those days, and these are mine. I think, thankfully the images are cute enough that you can get a bajillion ideas flowing! I will be making some more “worthy” samples once the mojo comes back to me. It has to be missing me by now!

Well if you want a chance to win, and see more samples check out the BLOG!! The DT has done some fabulous work!

Its not easy fitting everything into life in just 24 hours a day.

If you are like me you’d rather be blog hopping than literally hopping, and getting fit.

Think of the number of hours you spend ONLINE? And we all say we have NO TIME to exercise! I decided that was a LAME excuse. I use to spend more time answering emails than taking care of myself. Now 4 weeks in, and I am actually looking forward to my time to work out. I feel weird if I don’t!

Well since I am on a mission to get in shape, and no matter what make 1 hour a day to do that., I figured it would be great to make the most of my time doing it. I have a solution that will allow you to combine the best of both worlds!


What does this mean? Well exercise WHILE you surf your favorite blogs, update your own, answer emails, or any other online task you may have!

Here is a photo!


What on earth are you looking at?

I saw a episode on 20/20 about a company that ordered special desks for their workers so that they could WALK on a treadmill ALL day as they worked! They had them special made and the workers all got in shape walking at a slow pace 8 hours a day!  Personally that seemed exhausting, but I thought it was a cool concept.

I looked at my elliptical machine and asked myself HOW I could do that too.

SO I got my laptop, and using my sons (one size fits all adjustable) belt I strapped my laptop to my machine!!! It works great!!

I pop on my head phones, and get moving!! I can now go really fast and type at the same time. I have been doing my blog posts WHILE I workout for an hour for over 2 weeks now! The time goes much faster when you surf the Internet! No pages to turn on a magazine, and great reading! You get use to it quickly too. Just go to your favorite places, read and work. Before you know it an hour has flown by and you have not only made the step to getting healthy and in shape but you got in your computer time too!!

Now seriously how can there be any excuses?


Just strap it to the back, resting on the tray, snuggly!

Pretty cool huh?

I hope you give it a try if you have longed to get fit but want your computer time too. OR if you thought there weren’t enough hours in a day! You deserve to give yourself TIME! The healthier we are the better we feel. I never thought I’d feel great giving up coffee but I do.

OK enough of the exercise blah blah blah, I just wanted to share my fun find with all of you and hope it helps someone out there who may be wanting to make a life change too!

I will be back later with more peeks 😀
