Great Giveaway at Carly Robertson's Blog

Carly Robertson from The Simple Things is hosting a Giveaway for 8 items from the  invite.L online store. It is an assortment of journals, planners, felt pouches and bags. They are great for organization, meal planning, daily life, record keeping, you name it. Follow the link to enter this giveaway. Carly is offering a few different ways to enter so head over there now! (hahaha, that's an order!)
By the way, I found her blog through Paper Craft Magazine's blog, since Carly is a fellow paper crafter. She has recently changed the blog a bit, and is now geared more toward organization, photography and things like that. I for one, want to go clean out EVERYTHING every time I read one of her posts. I have been clearing stuff out recently, so THANK YOU Carly for the inspiration and the push to get started!

Have a great day!!


This One Is For The UK Fans Out There...University of Kentucky, That Is!

Never in a million years would I have ever admitted this, especially for all the world to see, but I have recently become a UK fan. I have lived in Kentucky for quite a few years, and I will ALWAYS be a  Florida girl. I had the opportunity to visit the UK campus not too long ago. It was then that I found out that not only is it one of the top schools in the country, but also has the #7 Spanish program as well. I figured, I live here, I might as well cheer on the home team. I also happen to LOVE basketball (as in die hard Miami Heat fans in my house). I love basketball almost (ALMOST) as much as soccer. Here in Kentucky, it seems to be almost a religion. So, I have these mugs, wine glasses, and sport mugs for all of the loyal Kentucky fans out there. They really are fun to watch. You can find them here~~>

All of my glasses and mugs can be sold individually or in sets, and most can be personalized. Please contact me with any questions you may have in regards to pricing, personalization, shipping, etc.

Have a great day, and stay warm....

Mugs for Kids

Good morning! As promised, I am back with a post on Christmas themed items. First up, I have a melting snowman mug. At 11.75 oz, it is the perfect size for kids. It has plenty of room for the whipped cream on top of that hot chocolate. This would be a great gift for anyone on your list this year.

It is available now in my Etsy shop, and can be personalized with someone's name on the other side of the cup. I have one available now, but if you need more, please contact me.

Next, I have a mug that is a little bit more grown up. This one has 3 snowflakes on one side, and just like most of the glasses I etch, can be personalized if you would like.

I have more but I hear Dominic moving around...time to get the daily routine started. I will be back later. I have SO MANY more glasses and gifts to share. There is something for everyone on your Christmas list. Everything is ready to ship too!

See you soon!

It Has Been A While...

Sorry for the absence the past *almost 3* months! Fall season is our busiest season in my home. Our 2 oldest boys play soccer and run Cross Country for the school. I have been etching glasses for local orders, but my stamps and cardstock have been neglected all of this time. I got the Silhouette in July (or was it August?) from my local scrapbook store, If you live in the area, you should definitely stop by. The Silhouette offers soooo many more options than the Cricut I was using. I am able to upload my own designs, use my own fonts, and best of all, it doesn't require much space since there are no cartridges to store. I won't be giving up my Cricut yet, but I do love my Silhouette!!

So, here are a few pictures of the glasses I etched recently for a customer. You can always place an order directly through my etsy shop.

I'll be back later with Christmas themed glasses that are ready to ship now. Have a great day!


Sweet Shot Tuesday

This is my first time posting anything for Sweet Shot Tuesday, which is hosted by Darcy at Life With My 3 Boybarians. Great site, I have been learning soooo much since I found her blog. If you have a chance, follow the links to her 31 Days Series. Lots and lots of helpful tips and tutorials if you are new to digital photography with a DSLR, or to Photoshop/Elements.
The photo I am posting is actually one that my 9 year old, Alex, took of me and Dominic a few days ago. I love it, 1- because Alex took it, 2- because Alex took it with my "big girl" camera (Canon Rebel XS), and 3- because it was a spur-of-the-moment-hey-mom-turn-around kind of photo. I fixed it up a little bit in PSE (mainly because Dominic's outfit was completely mismatched).

Darcy will be hosting her 2nd Annual Holiday Bokeh Party this Thursday. If you'd like to participate, the link goes live on Wednesday night- midnight, Central time.

I'll be back later with a new post about my etched glasses for Christmas!!

Have a great day!
