Well I am so excited today, I have SOOOOO much to share.

I’ve been REALLY busy here (a very good kind of busy-not sick kids and errands busy, but creative busy-thankfully the kids are fabulous) I love being able to share what I have been busy doing. February 1st is the next release for My Time Made Easy ™ LLC and I’ve been uber busy preparing for it.

My Time Made Easy ™ LLC is going to be a MONTHLY template sponsor over at the JUGS challenge blog!! Here comes something exciting…… if you play along this month, you will be entered to win a $25 gift certificate to My Time Made Easy ™ LLC!!! With our next release around the corner, that could come in HANDY!!!

Now to kick off the first month sponsoring, not only am I giving away one $25 gift certificate (chosen via www.random.org) I had the JUGS Girls play with a NEW! Pretty Packaging © template AND NEW! Pretty Impressions © acrylic stamp image!!

So you get an early PEEK at what is to come.

So……let me share the JUGS challenge:


Now see that little mailbox?

THAT my friends is one of four templates this month!

Introducing….Happy Mail © ! Releasing Feb 1st


I’m dying to hear what you think about it.

Completed Project:2 1/2 inches tall2 1/2 inches wide

4 inches long

 (Those of you with a personal cutter can make this larger or smaller too!) Happy Mail ©

There is nothing like getting “happy mail”!


We all love going to the mailbox and getting a unexpected surprise. Well, now you can GIVE  the surprise IN the mailbox itself! Could getting “happy mail” be any cuter, or EASIER!


This mailbox made of cardstock can hold endless ideas!


This project is perfect for anyone, young and old, male or female. You can make it for any occasion! I can easily see love notes, birthday gifts, letters to Santa, a bank, a virtual post office for children to play with, and dress it up to be more elegant, and you have a mailbox for the Happy Couple at a Wedding!  Personalize one for everyone you know.

The only limit is your imagination!

No matter what you package inside this mail box, the receiver is sure to be HAPPY!


Speaking of happy, it is time for me to share my completed project!


I went with a country theme


Just Chicken In


Now how cute is this??? (I got the framed window idea from the MTME (and JUGS) design team member-Pam :D)

I love the little chicken! Love! He is part of the new release called Critters with Heart. He is just so flippin cute. I love cutesy stuff and this set is certainly CUTESY.

I told you above that the JUGS girls were not only peeking a template, but a new stamp set too!!

This is the close up.


I made him sit in a nest 😀 (he does have legs BTW!) He/she was stamped home in a cranberry ink, and colored with Copic’s. I love the paper, faux stitching and sligh distressing.

Critters with Heart -21 images  


This is an adorable set that is perfect for ANY time of year, when you want to say something sweet to the one you love.

These CUTE little critters all have something in common-each was designed based on a heart! Add a punny sentiment and you are sure to warm the heart of anyone who receives something created with this set.


*Available in Pretty Impressions ©  acrylic stamps or in Pretty Impressions © digital images.*

YES!! You read that correctly!


* Coordinating Pretty Impressions © Digital Images:

We are excited to be adding this option to our store! Customer service and satisfaction is our #1 priority.

Upon the opening of My Time Made Easy™ LLC, we have had an overwhelming request to offer our Pretty Impressions © acrylic stamp images as digital files. Given the nature of our products, and coordinating product lines, I feel that is certainly a step worth taking! However, we will be offering only SELECT image sets in the digital download format. This decision will vary on the stamp set style and purpose.

For ALL our images, please be sure to view our Pretty Impressions © acrylic stamp sets.

chic-close.JPGI’m so in love. I made this template some time ago, and have been DYING to to share it. With Valentines day around the corner….I knew it was perfect timing.

Don’t get me wrong, this mail box is perfect for ANY time of year, but I can see LOADS of cardstock Happy Mail templates designed in classrooms, offices, and everywhere else, all over the world!

My kids are making these today, actually 😀 Yes, I will share photos of that too. It is a perfect afternoon craft for the kids. I do pre-assemble to save time! I just ask them to pick the color and way they craft.

I’ll soon share my children’s projects too so you can get some ideas what your children may want to try. We always have an afternoon craft hour, and my templates are ALWAYS their first pick!


I know I have a bunch of friends who enjoy a variety of specialty tea’s, so I packaged some up in this cute mailbox. An entire box fit in here!! I even brewed a cup for myself for “after” the photo shoot 😀 This template was PERFECT for sending to them! It would also be great for someone who is sick. I thought about packaging a  set of chicken noodle Cup-o-Soup packets, since they “travel” well, and go with the “chicken” theme too.


I made my base template from Kraft cardstock, and my botton/front flap in candied apple.

Now the cool thing about this template is your flag can go on either side of the template! I love that option.

The gingham  paper you see, in candied apple is in one of our Pretty Printables ©digital paper packs!! It is stunning and made this so perfectly country, as does the lacey ribbon from May Arts.


The tag on the mailbox reads: Just chicken in (how cute!) and perfect for sending this to that special someone. Love it.

I’m just so excited about this project and what the entire JUGS team has created too!! I hope you are just as excited to see what the team whipped up for projects using our soon to be release Happy Mail template and combining it with the Critters with Heart.

Be sure to check it out—>HERE!

I can’t wait to see what YOU do too.

Thank you for stopping by. Only 8 sleeps until our next release 😀
