a little something...




and I'm back....

It's been 4 weeks since I last posted 'for fun'.  All the other posts since then have been Design Team projects.  I'm back today with a 'just for fun' project and some chit chat.

First up, my project:


Excuse my photos as I'm trying to maneuver a different DSLR than I usually use.  Why is that?  My boy and girl are on vacation, visiting Hong Kong for their first time.  I always use the boy's camera now I'm back to using Darin's which I can't figure out the settings...gah...technology!  The kids sent me pics and a video today which made me tear up....miss them but I'm so happy they are having such a good time.

So back to my project,  here's a little giftie that is going to a special friend.  Yes, I'm using the Confetti Cuts by Reverse Confetti and this time I made them into peaches instead of oranges:)

























I could easily become a fruit-a-tarian...I love fruit and have several servings a day.  Which reminds me when my boy claimed that he was going to be a vegetarian.   That's when I had to break the news to him, he had to actually consume vegetables and not just pb&j.  

The journal card is by Chickaniddy Crafts and so is the solid peach paper.  It's the Date Night Collection.

I added cork, felt and May Arts Jute.

Typing about Chickaniddy...did you see that they are having a Craft Team Call?  I have thoroughly enjoyed being a part of the Chickaniddy Craft Team.  I've learned so much...been so inspired by my Teamies....Heidi is Awesome....the products are FABulous.


Did I ever tell you about my Chickaniddy story?  I saw the team call and 'stored it in my memory bank'...then the wonderful Loly messaged me about it.  She said it was calling my name.  That was the push I needed and I applied that very day.  Big shout out to Loly.  It was my first 'manufacturer design team' and I'm so happy that Heidi gave me this fabulous opportunity.

So, what am I trying to say?  You love Chickaniddy products?  You should apply.

Need more of a push?

Have you seen the 2 new to be released collections & give-a-ways?






If you've made it down to here, I thank you.  I would love to leave you with just one more thing.  

I feel so very fortunate to work for a company that is dedicated to developing products that assist physicians in their quest to improve the lives of cancer patients.


Please, it will just take 3 minutes to view this Kickstarter video for The Violet Sessions:



Why is it called "The Violet Sessions"?  To honor a brave and feisty 11 year old girl who inspires all of us - and to raise awareness of her legacy at Project Violet. 

I'm a proud backer of this Kickstarter Campaign...won't you consider becoming a backer too?  As I type up this post there are 88 backers.  When it hits 100, a generous family has offered to donate $10,000 to Project Violet.

If you do donate, please let me know...either leave me a comment here or email me directly {see right side bar}....I will send you a RAK.  That's how passionate I feel about this cause.
{please make donations by 11:59 pm pacific, Sunday, July 20th to be eligible for RAK}

With my many thanks in advance,

amy♥

  15. As the recipient of this fine gift I can tell you it is way more gorgeous in person than any picture can show, it just doesn't do it justice. I am carefully saving the stuff so I can upcycle them (don't worry, I'll give you credit!). :) Thank you for being such a wonderful friend! HUGS!
