Randomness. :)

This is the vinyl I did for my son's wall yesterday, he was so excited that his mommy made it just for him. So cute. He wanted to know what it said ( he spelled it out, but couldn't figure out the words.) I told him it said "dream big". and of course came the question what does that mean? LOL so I explained it. He loves it. I am now thinking what else I can come up with to put on his wall.
I have big dreams of my own... I want to start my own card/craft business, but it is not going easy (which I knew it wouldn't) but it is still disheartening, everyone seems to be excited and enthusiastic about my idea, just they can't help.
But I think my main thing might have to be my health first. Which is going to be hard, too many changes need to happen.
Always remember guys. Dream BIG. :)

I heart Imaginisce

I haven't gotten a chance to take a "real" pic yet, I will when I get the chance I just wanted to share this... I finally got my prize from imaginisce come, I don't blame them for it getting here so late, the mail here is very slow. Diffidently SNAIL mail here. But my prize (which I didn't know what it was going to be) is the whole collection of their line Animal Crackers click here to check it out. It is so pretty. I am really hoping to get some time to play with this soon. I have an idea in my head, for a waterfall card using this collection plus more plans. :)
I hope everyone has a great day, and weekend.

Wow 100 followers

When I checked my dashboard this morning, I saw that I now have 100 followers. Wow thank you to all my new and old followers. I feel so blessed.
Also thank you to all the people who made such nice comments on my bad news, you will never know how much I appreciate it. How do you reply to a nice comment?? I normally go to the person's blog and comment on their most recent post, is this good etiquette, or is there another way??

What a day...

Well needless to say my day was not so good. My mother is in the hospital right now awaiting surgery to remove her Gall Bladder. This is so nerve wracking, she has never had a major surgery before. She knew she needed to have this surgery done awhile ago, but kept putting it off, for the only reason "fear". I went to the hospital tonight with my dad, ( an hours drive away) and if the weather is OK tomorrow we are going back, they have not given her a time or date yet when she will have the surgery, it will either be tomorrow or Monday.
I am not sure how much time I will have to be online this weekend, there are a few great blog hops happening tomorrow, I hope i get a chance to complete them. I am soon headed to bed, this has been an exhausting week.

I did finish 2 wall vinyl decor for a lady and 2 cards for her too. Here are the pics, let me know what you think.

Hugs and goodnight all,
Melissa D

Learn from my mistakes....

So I searched the net to find some ideas on how to make some home made glimmer/shimmer mist. Well I made some, I added both the metallic pink, and the spun gold paint, I wanted some extra glitter to it and can't find pearl ex around here, so I seen this glitter paint. It was a bad idea, the glitter is way to thick, and clogs up the sprayer, I used a pin to poke at the hole of the sprayer to unclog it, well needless to say I am now trying to get glimmer mist off my face and glasses lol. I think this will work just fine with the 2 paints, and some very fine glitter. So what other things can I make at home to save my BF money. Haha. I have so many products on my wish list I am trying to cut it down by making some of it at home.
Hope you are all having a great day, catch you later through my shimmery glasses. One way to get rose colored glasses I guess. Hahaha.

Really quiet around here

Hi guys, I am sorry it has been so quiet around here. I am having some health issues and just feeling so tired and exhausted lately. I am trying so hard to just keep up with the normal day to day stuff, so not much energy left lately for crafting.

My Doc thinks I maybe diabetic, so that has my nerves shot. So you guys probably won't see much from me other then the scattered notice about a giveaway or contest.

I am reading and entering giveaways, I only do blog hops if they are not too terribly long, cause I get so confused if it is too long. My mind is all over the place, so the shorter the better. I hope by the time I am feeling better that you will all still be here.

Look what I won. :)

Norma over at Pink Bling Crafter's blog. It finally arrived in the mail today. The mail has been super slow because of all the snow we have been getting. I am super excited to start using this cart. I see so many possibilities. :) Thanks Norma.

I am 10 reward points away from 400 rewards, now at cricut. Too bad there is barely anything there for 400 reward points.
Also I got to see my Bestie's baby today, his little arms and legs and heartbeat. It was so clear, you could even pick out his little face. I can't wait now till she has him. So I can hold him.

Cars, snow and ultrasounds...

Here is lightening McQueen I made with my new Cars Cart. This is the first time making a cut so big. There are a few mistakes, which I have learned for the next time. Hope the mistakes are not too noticeable.

Here he is on my son's bedroom door. He is too young to notice the mistakes. hahaha. He was so excited.

We had another storm last night, so another day off for my son.

I am getting ready no to go to my Besties ultrasound appointment, this is her last one before the baby is born. I am living through her lol, since I have given up on the idea of having another baby. I can't wait to see him.
Hope everyone has a great day, and if you have snow like me, stay warm and stay safe.

Just a few projects...

Here is the guest sign in sheet I made for my Besties Baby shower. I cut most of the pieces out using free SVG's that I found around the net.

Here are the Valentines treat bags I put together for my son's Church Sunday School group.

I added these little valentines in the bag, I embossed them using my cuttlebug, and signed my son's name on them.

And here is my creation just messing around using scraps and leftovers of paper. It is an old medication bottle that I keep some of my card money in.
What do you guys think??
Hope everyone is having a great day.

1 away from 50

Wow I am 1 away from 50 followers. I know for some of you this is no big deal, but for me it is!! I see a lot of blogs around with hundreds of followers, but to have 49 is great. Maybe in a few more months I might even make it to 100. That would be so cool.

Stylish Blogger Award

Ola over at has awarded me with the Stylish Blogger Award!! Thank you Ola, this is my first award ever.
I am a newbie to the blogging world. I am a follower of many blogs. And I love reading each and everyone of them.
Because I received this Award I must thank them and link back to them, which I have done. Also I must share 8 things about myself... And also pass this award unto 8 other bloggers that I have recently discovered, And leave a comment so they can pass along the recognition! So I hope I don this right.
There are sooo many GREAT blogs out there and I know I have only seen the tip of the iceberg. But I have to choose 8 to receive this Stylish Blogger Award so here they are:
I hope you guys visit them, and leave them some bloggy love. I have a ton more faves, but I could only pick 8 so...
Now for the 8 things about me, oh boy...hmmm...
1. I am addicted to Pepsi, I know I should quit it, but I have tried and can't, yet.
2. I love trying new things, anything to do with paper crafting.
3. I am very self conscience in everything I do, even when I was doing this award, I am wondering if I am doing it right.
4. I am always paranoid of hurting people or stepping on toes, or making them made, again even while doing this, I hope I don't annoy anybody that I picked for the award, by picking them
5. I love animals, but most of all cats.
6. I have a hard time making decisions.
7. I hate exercising, I suffer from back pain, and when I walk to much my feet burn, and it's so painful.
8. I am always nervous when trying new crafts, I hate making a mistake and wasting paper/supplies.

I guess that's my 8 things, what are yours?? Did I reveal too much?
And again thanks Ola for choosing me to be one of your 8. :)
