100 Day Project are you feeling it!?

So today is 19th day of my 100 day project....
What is it you ask??

It all started with instagram for me lol
I follow a lady who posted she was going to start this 100 day project. Her name is Laura and she blogs here:
100 Day project - laurel and fern

I was so intrigued as I kept seeing more and more ladies post that they were in.
So after some investigating I found the original content creator of this movement here:
The 100 day project

So basically you do something creative for 100 days straight and make up a hashtag on IG to keep track.

I chose to do something crafty everyday! It can be big or small but to do something. I started with unfinished projects. Oh with a catch that IF I didn't do something crafty I made sure to work out that day.

So let's see what I have been up to! 

started off with a poll on what paint color to choose for my album that I needed to start and finish for a studio calico class.

got to painting 

and this is what my first ring mini album cover looks like (I will share more details later on the finished album)

finished my March one little word.... blogged about and uploaded a YouTube!

opened this guy up and made the tiniest envelope! 

Gave away some planner tees I had left just sitting in a box at home. 
I hope these ladies love them! 

organized my thickers 

organized some new purchases from HSN & We R Memory Keepers!

Purchased and built this unit with the help of my son from Michael's
it's fits perfect under one of my craft-room desks.
Filling it up will be next. 

So there you have it crafting or organizing or exercising is my jam on this next 100 days!

Did you join or it's not to late to start!

March One Little Word -ya still with me peeps!?

Yes-- March came and went and here is a recap of what I did and how I reflected on my word.

Let's ch ch check it out!

My main focus was working out and getting better connected with the good man above. 

This girl is my coworker and she makes my job and working out so much more fun! I cherish her!

Wait and she's my photographer! lol,

In March we also got to go to my hubby's first movie premier. 
It was crazy insane to his name on the big screen. 
The movie was called Marcianos vs. Mexicanos.
I pray it does well in Latin America and that it will hit the big screens here in the US.   

My last page are my reflections of the month. 

I also have a tiny clip of my #olw album here: 

Thanks for stopping by! Happy #olw if you are following along! 
By this time last year I had already fell of the project! So happy to be here celebrating and
reflecting on my word "Grace".

February - One Little Word 2018

Woo hoo---- February and #OLW! Month two and I am here for it!!I am so excited to share my update on my progress! This months prompt was to create a vision board. It was so fun I created TWO!

Let's do this y'all!

I somehow changed Ali Edwards font from black to pink for February.
You know just to change things up! These are free markers she gave us in the online class. 

Here I printed on vellum and i'm slightly addicted to printing on vellum - it's just really cool. 

My first vision board- I chose to just cut out words that were calling me.  I also loved the colors of the yarn against the wood bowl.  

My second vision board I went with some things I am loving right now. 
My fav color is pink and I basically am still in love with February. 
Grateful everyday for this little blog where I get to come show my craft. 

Thanks for stopping by!  

I leave you with a little video of my #olw album so far.

Happy Galentine's Day!!

Happy Galentine's  Day friends! I hope today is treating you right! It's a day for celebrating friendships! Every year I hold a Valentine's craft party for my sisters and nieces. I have 8 older sisters and about 15 nieces. It started off as I had no crafty friends so I would entice my sisters to come craft with me one day out of the year. I had to really pull their teeth just to get them to come over. No one wanted to make cards or anything crafty.... now about 5 years later they text me like hey what craft our we doing this year! Our party has gotten so big as new nieces are born and my daughters include their friends so yeah it ends up being one big mess but of so fun! lol

Since we had more littles this year we decided to keep it simple with cookie decorating --- let's go!

So this picture here was mu inspiration - I found it on pinterest. I thought they were easy for the littles to decorate the hearts and us big girls could do the mini envelopes.

I baked the night before. I know nothing like last minute! 

Each of us bought different frosting types and colors.

You can't have a party with out donuts and my sisters love my local donut shop. 

My sweet niece Shawna. Still can't believe I have watched her grow up and now she assists me! 

I gathered some crafts so everyone could decorate  their bags and fill them with cookies for their loves. 

Here is our our new niece Lily and my oldest sister teaching her how to put sprinkles on her cookie. 

My niece Thalia who ate then decorated several cookies :) I think she liked my baking! 

My sweet sister Judy who always  make sure salad is part of out sweets at every Valentine Party!

Here I am with my grand-baby who I adore. I let her put as much frosting on everything because after all it was a party!!

My awesome sister Alma who is like a mom to me and my niece who is like my sister.

Here is a decorated bag. They all loved stamping as I tried to not have mini heart attacks with my ink pads lol 

Crafts, heart pizza and salad before we made a huge crafty mess! 

My backdrop I created was very simple to do: 

Balloons, masking tape and wa- la! 

We even decorated brownies and cupcakes too!

Oh and you know I made all the kids pose by this backdrop of mine! 

Not sure if this movie will play.... but here is the breakdown of the backdrop!

Thanks for staying with me if you made it this far! I have got to think of something out this world next year for these girls! 

Happy Galentines--- don't forget all you need is two people for a party!
