Play time!

Hey everyone!

Today I spent the afternoon crafting with some very talented ladies! I worked on making a bunch of Halloween cards for friends. I decided it had been a while since I mailed some card out and thought Halloween would be perfect!

Here are the three variations of cards I made for the day!


- Darcie's Clear Polymer Stamp Set #POL79

- Memento Black Ink

- My Mind's Eye Lost and Found Halloween 6x6 pad

- Stickles in Crystal

- Copic markers (sorry don't remember the specific colors!)

Play time!

Playing with Washi!

I love washi tape! I know, I know... I've given in to the washi tape trend.  You can't help to fall in love after you've seen all the things you can do with it!

I always carry a little notebook in my purse so that I can write notes wherever I am. While at Barnes and Noble I realized mine had been used up and found these cute little notebooks!


When I picked them up I thought that they were just begging for some washi tape to spice them up! So that night I started playing and here is what I ended up with!


The washi tape wraps around to the back cover too with the diagonal stripes.  I think it turned out pretty cute and the neon colors make me smile when I pull it out of my purse!

Here are a few other ways to use washi tape!



Washi is a great way to make to easily add a pop of color to cards and it also makes a great embellishment on scrapbook pages!

I am headed to Detroit tomorrow for the Arts, Beats, and Eats festival and to learn how to stand up paddle board this weekend!

Have a great weekend!

Hey everyone!

So sorry I have been absent the past two weeks! I had jaw surgery and have been recovering and relaxing! I have not been up to too much except watching tv and reading books!

I did bake up a special treat a week ago though! A friend contacted me wanting to order some cake pops for her friends baby shower and I was so touched she thought of me! She asked for Bengals themed cake pops! I decided to make a vanilla bean cake with cream cheese frosting cake pop and I tinted the cake and frosting orange to go along with the Bengals theme!




I thought they turned out great! These would be perfect for football season! ;)

I plan on baking and trying some new things tomorrow.  Hopefully I will have some pretty goodies to share with you afterwards!

Hope you all are having a great week!

Reunion weekend!

Hey all! I am so sorry for not posting sooner!

This past weekend I took a trip up to Royal Oak, Michigan (near Detroit) to visit some friends! A few of us from Cincinnati went up and one friend came from NYC! We all came together for a reunion of sorts and housewarming party for two friends!

It was so nice being all together again!


I will be posting some photos of scrapbooking and card making creations later this week!

I'm looking forward to posting more often!

Till next time!

Hey everyone!

Sorry for being missing in action lately! I have been helping mom clean out the entire house for our garage sale last Saturday! We found some great things in the process! Like these hurricane glasses from Pat O'Briens from 1980!


I have lately been house/pet sitting for a friend while she is visiting family and can't get enough of my two new friends! Aren't they cute?


I have also been taking advantage of having time to scrapbook and am working hard on my study abroad album (yes... still).  Here's a layout I completed last night (sorry for the bad iPhone photo!

My McDreams Came True!

Hello Everyone! Sorry for not posting for a little while! I have been busy in Mansfield, Ohio this weekend enjoying a car race with a friend!

My highlight of the weekend? Finally meeting the one, the only, McDreamy!


See this hunk? Well during his time off from filming Grey's Anatomy he drives the #40 car on his own race team of Dempsey Racing.  He races cars in the Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series GT Class.  So this weekend he turned into this hunk...


Yup, I think he looks hotter this way too! Well ladies, let me break it to you easy... he is even HOTTER in person! :)  I got the pleasure to meet him and get an autograph on Saturday!


This week my excitement will die down as I help my mom clean out the entire house for a garage sale!

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend!

Potholes at Every Turn!

Hello everyone! Today was my last day on Detroit and I will be driving home bright and early in the morning!

Today we got together as a group for a great brunch of cinnamon French toast at Jimi's before heading to the track! Talk about delicious!

The weather was beautiful at the track and the race started really well. Then the track started falling apart and causing cars to run into the wall! Oh boy! The potholes had been filled with a sealer which was coming up when the cars drove over it! We had to wait for the road crew to fill in the potholes to restart the race.

Hope you all had a great weekend!

Having a McDreamy moment!

It is a gloomy rainy day day here at Belle Isle in Detroit! I am with friends watching practice and qualifying for this weekends races!

My favorite moment of the day? Why being within an arms length of Patrick Dempsey of course! Oh my is he much more gorgeous in person! But did I have my camera or phone in my hand? Nope and my brain was a little slow realizing he was beside me! I hope to see him again in the paddock and get a picture or autograph then!

And as I'm typing this post guess what happens? He runs right into the wall in front of my seat... Maybe he just wanted me to get a good photo? ;)


Having a McDreamy moment!
