Happy Saturday!! How was your day? I hope it was good. I spent most of the day cleaning out my craft room and creating in my craft room. I am still working on organizing and cleaning my craft room. It has been an ongoing process. I work to the point that it starts to get annoying and then I stop and usually create something. I have a pretty good pile going for my garage sale this summer. I hope I get some crafters at my garage sale because they will be in heaven.
We had a family day yesterday. My husband was out of town for just about a week and he came home Wednesday. He took Thursday and Friday off of work to catch up on sleep and spend some time with me and the kids. The kids had Friday off of School so we headed out to our biggest mall in our area about an hour from our home. Here is what it looks like
There are a lot of things to do at the mall. There are over 200 stores inside, over 30 eateries, and a bunch of entertainment including Wonder Works. We hung out there for about 6 hours or so. We went to Dave and Buster’s for lunch and we have never been there before. The kids loved it there. If you don’t know what a Dave and Busters is, it is a sports bar, restaurant, and huge video game place. We had a good time playing video games. As a family, we all really love video games.
Here is a couple of pictures of my boys.
We all love Ghostbusters but especially my oldest. He and his dad played this game together and then I had to have the photo of my boys.
I also had a little time to create a few cards. The first one I made was with the note cards from Stampin Up. I used the Saleabration Set Delicate Details and embossed the background with one of the stamps. I used gold emboss powder and then cut a piece of the Pop of Pink Designer Series Paper. I had a piece of very vanilla cardstock and used the sentiment from another Saleabration stamp set called Designer Tee. I used a heart enamel from the metallics enamels.
I also used Any Occasion from Saleabration. I made two cards with this set. I have had this set for a little bit now and today was the first time I was able to play with it. I love this set. I never have baby cards on hand. So I made two baby cards, one for a girl and one for a boy. I was also able to use the glimmer paper from Saleabration too. Here are the cards
I used silver emboss on these. If you guys can’t tell already I love to emboss. lol, I am trying to show you guys all the awesomeness you can create with Saleabration items. They are almost gone you only have 13 more days to get Saleabration.
I also made a video on how to make the card in my last blog post. I will leave that at the end of this blog.
My team recently did a challenge. We have a business page and a regular facebook page for all the team members of my current team. Some of our team members only want to be Hobby Demonstrators and some want to make a business of it. My upline has no pressure on any of us. She is so supportive of whatever we want to make of our Demonstrator Status. Which is one of many reasons why I joined her team? I can’t wait to have my own team and have the same laid back way. But anyways my Upline challenged us all to do a practice Facebook live on our business page. So I did my first live video today. It was kind of nerve-racking but it was kinda fun too. So I decided to do a live YouTube video once I reach 500 subscribers and I will do another giveaway too. I am so close right now. I am at 488 as I am writing this. I am so excited. I know that to some this number may seem small but to me I never imagined anyone following me. I started this journey about 6 months ago so I am super excited with what I have accomplished so far. I may not have the customers yet but I know if I keep at it I will. I hope to have an awesome team one day too. Here is the video I promised. Happy Saturday!!!!!
