Last Friday I did to show off my infinity fold card
I won a roll of chevron ribbon and a beautiful card from Linda (which she cased from the leadership boards)
How lucky am I?
Here is the infinity Fold card I made:
The pictures just don’t show how much fun this card is to open
Wanna see how to make this card?

A few weeks ago we had a small craft fair that turned out to be the best one ever
I sold some stuff and bought way more, lol
That is the nature of these craft fairs that my group does
Anyway, Kristy Eskew was sitting next to me and she sells Scentsy
You can see her Beautiful and really good smelling stuff on her Scentsy website
She has this wax warmer that has magnetic frames you can put photos in
She also has decorative frames that will fit into the space on the front of the warmer
Here is a picture of one of the decorative frames you can get
The other frame is a picture frame and since they are magnetic I can change them out whenever I want
So, my brilliant idea was to create a stamped image on vellum to put in the picture frame
I can make new ones and change them whenever the mood strikes me
Here is my first picture:
I tried a lot of different styles and techniques like shimmer and glitter but in the end because of the amount of light behind it they all were washed out
What looked the best was Stampin’ Up!’s Stampin Write Markers
Here is a couple of pictures of the whole Scentsy warmer and with the light on:
Do you have an idea that you thought was brilliant?
Leave me a comment and tell me about it, I might be able to try it and blog about it

Challenges are my specialty, I won’t sleep until I have a solution
Right now I have insomnia, lol, because I am trying to get my schedule organised
My schedule is crazy:
M-F 6:30 am I get my 2 yr. old niece Danyelle
M-F 6:30 am to 9:30 am we nap (or she is a blubbering mess, me too!)
Monday my studio is closed so we do housework, laundry and a movie and popcorn
Tuesday through Friday my studio is open from 1:00 pm to 7:00 pm
So from 9:30 am to 11:00 am we have breakfast, take out the dogs and maybe get a bath
From 11:00 am to 12:00 pm we get lunch prepared to take with us and for Jerrah to have at work
from 12:15 pm until my studio closes I am there, Danyelle’s mommy gets there around 2:30
After Danyelle leaves I can really focus on projects and my blog
Then on alternating Thursdays and Fridays I work over-nite at the hotel (pays for my studio)
Saturday I get to catch up on missed sleep and then to the studio
Sunday is a rest day (HAHA) I usually spend this on the parents farm working
So I decided since I couldn’t find a planner that fit me I would make one
I have this amazing program called My Digital Studio (MDS)
Well here was the challenge…
I want my designs to print all the way to the edge of an 8 1/2″ X 11″ piece of cardstock
MDS will not do that because it is designed for professional printing and has a built in bleed area
I searched the internet for solutions (always my first step) not much there
I changed my printer setting with no luck MDS overwrites this
Finally I figured it out…
I saved the project as a JPEG to my computer
reopened the project in Microsoft office 2010 and printed it as one 8 1/2″ X 11″ picture PERFECT
Completely borderless no white at all!!!
I am so happy that now I will design my perfect planner (I will share when its done)
It was such a simple solution that frustrated me completely
PLEASE if you have any suggestions for organizing my various life projects and menial tasks please let me know
I am a complete dork and love lists so throw me all your ideas!!!!
