OH boy I am busy as a bee these days!!


The next release from My Time Made Easy ™ LLC is ALMOST here!! I can’t even wait. I have a ton of stuff to share soon. My creativity is on OVERDRIVE!


Plus doing daily activities with the kids has kept me busy.

I know many of you are wondering what I am up to these days, and right now……….. business stuff! I’m so enjoying every moment and have never felt so liberated or creative!! Sadly I’m still in “tight time” mode so I have been absent here-sorry!

If it makes you feel any better SCS has been having blog issues anyway! I also didn’t realize just how much I would have to do too! LOL! I guess you never really do.


SO I have a post today and tomorrow <—which will be a HUGE early peek at SOME of what is to come from MTME in February!!


I cannot say thank you enough for the huge hit my first release has been and all the love and support. You helped make my dream a reality! The emails have been especially wonderful 😀 Thank you!


OK let’s get to the eye candy!


A few months ago I was asked by Kendra from Character Cafe  if I would guest design for them in January.Of course I was happy to oblige!! Granted life got very hectic but it was refreshing to take a break from all work, no play, to get INKY again.If you have yet to hear of the Character Cafe , they sell Digi Stamps, which I am getting more familiar with as time goes on 😀  Today they are hosting a Digi stamp/template challenge-so be sure to check it out—> HERE! You can see ALL the details!  They have until next Thurs. 10pm EST to enter. 

The winner will receive the Character Cafe  new Valentine Releases (there are 3 of them) as the prize.

They’ll also receive a 15% off Discount Coupon for The Character Cafe Store, a winner’s badge for their blog and they’ll be featured on our website with a link to their blog/gallery.


The Design Team is playing along too

Piali, Rachel, Sara, Meredith and Billie!

Now here is my contribution

 My daughter Amber has a birthday party to attend next weekend. The girl is turning 6. She got her a gift card, and we thought we’d package it up all pretty and girly, and add some candy to it too! So for my guest spot (and the challenge) I thought I’d use the In a Pinch © Pretty Printable template  choice-fairy-side.JPG This is a close up of what we came up with Dream Come Truefairy-dream.JPG Amber helped me browse the store and chose Fairy Belle for the gift image. She was definitely perfect for the Fairy themed party.I colored her to look like her friend. fairy-front.JPG I stamped her on a nestabilty tag, colored her with Copic markers and added some Stickles! 



The sentiment is by JustRite Stampers January Release Loving Thoughts Centers 1-5/8″

“You are a dream come true”. I thought that was perfection!




I added the patterned paper to the bottom and trimmed it with some American Crafts ribbon.

I went on to use another new release

Plant a Little Love Borders & Centers Round to make my own patterned paper. I just randomly stamped then colored it, adding some Shimmerz to them in the end.

Well I was on a mini roll….so I went and created a card too!

I didn’t have time to do what I planned, but at least I got the card created!

 Sunflowersunflowers-close-up.JPG When I saw that particular image I was so drawn to it! I love flowers!I just re-sized the same image to create this one.Clean and simple. Just my style 😀 I used a glitter pen on the sunflower petals, but it didn’t show up-sorry. Trust me though, pretty in person!Makes me FEEL Spring! The gingham paper is a SOON to be released pattern 😀 Stay tuned!I want to thank the team at Character Cafe for trying out the templates, and having me play along! It was fun. Thanks for stopping by Tomorrow I have a sneak peek at ONE of our next stamp releases and a template!! You won’t want to miss it!
