An Attitude Of Gratitude


Hello Everyone,
Since its the end of the month that means its time to have an attitude of gratitude. As I was going through my past post, I realized that I didn't get to write one of these at the end of July. So to make up for it, I'm including more things that I'm grateful for (hence the long list). 

The things that I'm grateful for this month are:
  • Getting Closer To God
  • Hanging Out With My Best Friend
  • Having Two Weeks Off Between Semesters
  • My Health
  • My Families Health
  • Sparky's Health
  • The New Pepsi (Made With Real Sugar)
  • Pizza
  • Surprise Gifts (like this new Scotch dog tape dispenser)
  • New Followers
  • Blogging Opportunities
  • Possibly Finding ''That  Transfer College'' To Finish Up My Degree (I'll keep you posted)
  • Watching Old Movies
  • Finding Time To Blog
  • Surprise Food (like cherry cokes from Steak n Shake)
  • Being Happy
  • Season Changing (anybody else excited for pumpkins, scarves and cooler weather?) 
  • Family Time
  • My Parents For Always Making Me Laugh
  • God's Many (many) Blessings

What are you grateful for this month?

Long time no see! I know I've been a little absent on the blog lately. College is in full swing and I'm still trying to adjust to my new schedule/studying time/blogging time. Since this weekend will be nice and long (Saturday + Sunday + Labor Day), hopefully I can get some blog post published or written.

In the mean time, I thought you might like to know that right now when you buy my craft kit from Darby Smart you will get a free pair of poppin scissors! Just used the code CUTSMART to get your free pair with a purchase of $20 or more. There is only a limited quantity and the offer ends September 3 at 11:59 PM EST.

5 Craft Scrap Projects


Hello Everyone,
If your like me you probably save all your craft scraps with the thought in mind that you will someday transform them into an amazing project. The only problem is that every project that comes to mind, requires you to buy more expensive supplies to make up for those few scraps that you want to use. Well, I don't know about you but I think making a craft project should be fun and fairly inexpensive. 

With this thought in mind, I rounded up five craft projects that not only use craft scraps but use other cheap materials that can probably be found around your home. Also everyone of these projects can serve a purpose once your done making it!

Make It!
Make It!

I love making projects using craft scraps. How about you? How you ever made a project using craft scraps?

Special Sunday Etsy Picks: Black & White

Start Today Inspirational Print
Happy Sunday Everyone,
Its been a while since I've done a Special Sunday Etsy Picks! I looked at my archives and the last time I wrote one of these post was in June. Needless to say, I thought it was time for another installment. 

As you can tell by the title, everything I rounded up is black and white. Personally, I've always love the colored combination and always thought graphically it just look cool. For example, I love the '' Start Today'' print above. To me its not only pretty graphically but really catches your eye and makes you think about starting that dream/goal today. If I were to buy this print, I would included it as part of a gallery wall. I think it would look so good surrounded by other black and white prints and a few colored prints. 

The other items I found would make any technicolor person wish for little more black and white ;)

Enamel Teapot
50s leather frame bag
Ceramic Bowl in Black and White Hearts
Audrey Hepburn Fan Club Pin

I do have to say my favorite item out of this whole thing is the above Audrey Hepburn fan club pin. Katie from Scathingly Brilliant designed these pins and has everything from food, to tv shows and celebrity pins in her shop. The Audrey Hepburn, Fox Mulder and Dana Scully pins are my favorite. 

So are you a fan of black and white?
