Joy in the Journey: Tricks and Treats, Shopping as a Family and Arby’s!

October 15th, 2014

So sorry about not writing for a week! I always feel a little wiped out after a vigorous 24-hour craft day at HSN. There is so much energy and excitement while I”m there but also very little sleep. So–I always seem to come home and have a little down time.

1. Look what my buddy, Michael Lazorchak, made for Kerri Bradford and me using the Silhouette and inspiration from one of Kerri’s classes!

These came as a surprise package in the mail and I’m in love with the look and creativity!

Michael cleverly placed lights in the back of the haunted house for a lightening effect. The house slipped a little in shipping (it’s not suppose to be tilted) but I actually love the shadowed effect that this creates.

This is what Michael meant the haunted house to look like.

Love the candy corn on the bottom and the huge bug is clinging on the outside of the frame and can be moved around!

He got the idea from one of Kerri’s creations:

You can get the cut file here and the instructions here. Thanks for the fun, Michael! You are the most creative guy I know!

2. My first grandchild is due in one week! Needless to say our family can hardly wait. Every Monday night we spend as a family and either have a spiritual message or an activity together. This past Monday, look what we did? Yes–it has something to do with the baby. Any guesses?

3. I so love my Thursdays with my dad. While he sadly can’t remember a lot about his life, he does remember that his favorite place to eat is Arby’s! Usually his best friend takes him but this past week I got the privilege to be his escort. When asked what he loves about Arby’s, my dad replied: “The wonderful atmosphere, DeDe (an amazing employee) who already knows his order when she sees him, and the big handful of mints that the workers fill his pockets with as he says goodbye!” Oh how I love this man!

I’m off to Seattle and Vancouver Canada for a few days with my girls for fall break. Unfortunately my hubby can’t go due to his rigorous university schedule. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that my granddaughter will wait until her due date and not come early!

Hope you’re finding joy in the journey.

Lisa

Giveaway Day #5: Craftwell eBrush

October 3rd, 2014

 

GiveawayWeek51 Giveaway Day #5: Craftwell eBrush

 

Before I talk about today’s big giveaway, I’ve got to tell you about my amazing day yesterday! I’ve simply got the best social media friends on the planet! When my son began serving a mission in New Zealand 16-months ago, the gal on the left, Mandy Blake from Wellington, New Zealand, immediately reached out and has been my e-mail buddy ever since. In fact, she regularly sends Collin packages and notes of cheer. Then I met Michelle McArthur, the other gal in green, who lives in the same town my son is currently living (Dunedin).

She has been a sweetheart and last week delivered birthday presents to Collin! Can you imagine his surprise when someone showed up that knew him and his mum??!!

Back to yesterday’s story. Both Mandy and Michelle (independent of each other–they live on different islands) took a break from their California vacations and flew up to see me! Of course I had to arrange some scrapbooking surprises for them. We started the day touring Jana Eubank’s scrapbook room–my all time favorite. She’s the pretty gal on the right in the top picture.

Our next stop was lunch on the top of the Joseph Smith Memorial building in downtown Salt Lake City. Oh–look who showed up!

Oh how I love sweet, spunky Heidi Swapp! We had a delightful time and she showered them with Heidi Swapp products.

Our next surprise stop was at the Teresa Collins headquarters.

Can I just say that Teresa’s office space is the COOLEST I’ve ever seen. It’s filled with gold and chandeliers and cool sayings and . . . WOW! It is as classy as the lady who owns the company. Teresa also had cool gifts to give all of us!

Next we went to my favorite cupcake place and look who walked in:

Okay–YES! I planned that Liz Kartchner, also known as Dear Lizzy, would meet us there! She is just adorable and talented and we had such a great time chatting and eating four different types of cupcakes. Liz also spoiled them with Dear Lizzy products!

What a fun day for me as well. I got to reunite with some scrapbooking friends that I’ve known for years AND got to meet new kiwi friends who I loved getting to know!

Okay, now onto our final giveaway of the week! Have you had fun this week? I sure have.

Today’s giveaway is such a fun one–the Craftwell eBrush. If you don’t own or haven’t seen this bundle of energy, aka an amazing airbrush that fits in the palm of your hand and uses regular markers, you’re in for a real treat!

All these different markers can be used!

And guess what? On October 7th, it will be offered at a special pricing for under $100 in a new bundle. (It’s currently sold-out on HSN.com.) The eBrush will be featured at 6 am (ET), 6 pm (ET) and 11 pm 9 (ET).

I showed in Monday’s post some pictures from Taylor’s shower and Yay–I was finally able to give her these onsies that were made with the eBrush and Silhouette. (One for picture day each month of the first year of her life.)
