Happy 😃 Sunday ~

Hi there Crafty Friends,
Well this week has flown by and we spent yesterday out on our boat with sweet friends and had a GREAT time together.
Today I am staying cool by creating in my craft room and I am doing some bible journaling entries. I am working through the Illustrated Faith Minthly Devotional Kit Simmer Revival Camp 2019. These are such wonderful kits and the content is so perfect ~ 

Aren’t the illustrations just adorable? 
I wanted to jazz up my tab clippie so I used the fabric that was wrapped around the packaging the kit came in. To take it up a notch I stamped little airplanes ✈️ using the stamp set and I love how it turned out... 

Here’s how it looks at the top of my page 

Well I hope you are staying cool 😎 it’s blisteringhot here in Chicago. I’ll have a new video for youthis coming week so keep your eye out for that here and over on my YouTube Channel. 

Cool Hugs,

Bible Journaling Bag & Entry ~

Greetings Crafty Friends,
We were camping earlier this week in the Wisconsin Dells and of course I packed my bible journaling bag.
However, my bag isn’t as cute and organized as some of the YouTubers I’ve seen ...
Oh well, it’s my journey and my time with God.
Perhaps I could have packed a little less ~
Aside from my hot mess of a bag I did enjoy starting the new Illustrated Faith New Testament Revival Camp Kit. 
Here’s my entry and I am anxious to continue diving in to all the great content ...
Have a great weekend and stay cool in this extreme heat, good time to stay indoors and create some bible entries!

Happy Hugs,

Greetings From The Wisconsin Dells!

Hi there Everyone,
We are vacationing in the beautiful Wisconsin Dells so I am not in my craft room right now but on our pontoon instead! 
If you have never been to The Dells I hope you can visit sometime and appreciate all the incredible beauty. It’s so rich in Native American history as well ...
We have been coming here for years and I have many fond memories from my childhood as well.
There is nothing better for me than turning off all the electronics, getting out in nature and relaxing on the water with my family - I love it!
Bring on the bonfires and s’mores - this momma is in her happy place!
I’ll be back in a few days with a new video for you ~ 
Happy Hugs,

Scrapbooking Sunday!

Hi there Crafty Friends,
I hope you all had a fabulous 4th of July weekend ... I am in my happy place getting more scrapbook pages done and working towards getting caught up!
I am using the “Meow” kit from Echopark which makes the process go so quickly.
Are any of you guys up to date on your albums? I used to be when we lived in New Jersey but have fallen off the track since moving to Chicago.
Well I have been making time to get pages done and that’s what it takes -
I hope these layouts give you some inspiration and I’d love to see what you guys are working on.
