Goodbye Post from 3rd Eye

I fell in love from the first moment with 3rd Eye products. They were so unique and there was no store in town that could carry her stamps.
Karolina is fabulous lady and fun friend.
I got my chance to design for the team and what a fun ride it has been!
It was rough going in the beginning due to the death of my mom but I kept going. My mojo is almost fully back and some days are better than others. I know my mom would be so proud and would want me to keep going.
Stop by 3rd Eye for my last post for that team.
One of my first projects using 3rd eye....
Thank you and Happy Scrappn!

My Kix - SOUS Die cut and Zeus and Zoe DT

Hello Crafters!!!
How about them KIX!
My son was thrilled with the shoes that his Aunt Missy sent him from Texas. Thank you Aunt Missy! So I pulled out my Zeus and Zoe kit and paired it with the challenge this week over at Stuck On U Sketches.. : Word Art.  What a fabulous time.


Yes I had fun using my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the title and the background paper. I was racing the sun to get this photo done today.
I had fun using my Art Anthology to paint these Scrap FX chippies that came from Zeus and Zoe.

More altered glasses

painted over the flower and the button

As you can see you can do so much with Word Art .. definitely head over to Stuck On U Sketches and see what the rest of the fabulous team came up with. You will love it. Also for some great supplies check out the Zeus and Zoe Etsy as well as their blog for some fun and inspiration.

Pur Water Rocks!

What a wonderful surprise to receive a full size pitcher from PUR! We love how the water tastes. Because of it's filtration I can use it on my CPAP device. Thank you Influenster! I love the improvements in this model with the easy to fill portion of the lid.


So very cool!


I've been drinking more water and I figure this will cut down on buying so many bottled waters. 
Influenster is a fabulous program where one can try some fantastic products if chosen!
I will always be a huge fan of PUR water, the best tasting water!

All the cuts were from MY FRIEND'S MACHINE - Cricut Explore  (yes I wish I had one). Join us over at Stuck On U Sketches and show us what you make with a house... and definitely check out what our design team has cooked up for us.
