Father’s Day – 1 week away

Last Minute Father’s Day Card Ideas

Seems hard to believe that I have been absent from my blog for almost a month. After being so busy with my son’s wedding and then a much needed vacation, I am back in the studio making memories again! Some of you have been asking for ideas to use for making your own Father’s Day cards. So I whipped up a few this past week and had so much fun I thought I would share the cards with my followers and friends. Hope you enjoy and that you are inspired to make a card for your dad- remember his big day is Sunday, June 15th.

The quality and feel of this paper is could be referred to as a paper crafter’s delight!

Whimsical Wednesday

Standard

Ready for another great day? Some may call it hump day but I like to think of it as reaching the peak of the mountain and the rest of the week is the downward climb to our base camp. To me, every day is an adventure and I love the climb and side trips along the way where I can stop and appreciate all that I am surrounded by! Some weeks I even love the decent as much as the climb because if I am too tired or in pain from my arthritis, I can simply roll down the hill. And if I am totally entrapped in the complexity or excitement of a major project, I don’t have to worry about running out of steam but can coast to the end of my trip without exhaustion setting in.

Join Us for some Whimsy

3Funky-Divas-banner2Whimsical Wednesday’s with The Jewels of Kingwood usually is filled with actual hands-on production of what we envisioned and planned on the first part of our trek. So today… as I look forward to the end of this week, I will be creating samples and practice our booth set up for the event we will be doing on Saturday here in our community.

Consider this your personal invitation to join us at Atascocita High School, 13300 Will Clayton, Humble, TX, on Saturday, April 26, 2014, 11am until 2pm. We will have our booth set up and demonstrating scrapbook and greeting card layouts, scheduling workshops and gatherings, and all while helping to support the FFA club at AHS.

Kickbacks???

Standard

money3I was asked the other day if we get any type of kickback or compensation from the companies we support or share in our posts. The answer is a resounding “NO”! We feel it is important to share the jewels we find in our Internet travels and when we find anything we believe is credible and trustworthy, we pass it along to our readers. We also do not get any type of compensation or percentage from any sales that are made when our readers visit and purchase at any of the vendors we share.
