Life is a lil bit krazy!

Hey Krazies!

I hope you had an awesome summer!  I hope to have more stuff int he fall and winter.  I noticed quite teh slow down on many blogs, course mine slowed to a stop but that is all Tammy's fault. LOL.  Seriously, things should pick up soon, between work, kids outta school, hurricanes, lots of rain, an actual earthquake (the strongest ever on the East Coast, strong enough to rattle all our nerves) life is just.... well.  Life.

I have something to share.


So as a lot of you know - I'm the Director of Housekeeping for Hampton Inn.  This week we celebrated International Housekeeping Week.  I had a tiny budget to work with for 30 employees.  I figured I'd put some of my craft room to use and make a few things. Something small to give out each day.  As you can see, I did not have a ton of time on my hands  Day one everyone got the lil bags filled with bunches of mini Hershey bars.  Day 2 they got the personalized bottles - which they LOVED!  Day 3 they got the "Thank You Bags" with fire balls and life savers (behind the fireballs, you can't see them in this photo)  My original vision was to do bag toppers with "You are on Fire!" or something catching like that. And the same with the Lifesavers - bag topper with "You are a life saver" but alas time did not allow for that so I cheated and downloaded the topper already made up and smacked a stamp on 30 of them then stapled both the bags of candy to the topper.  Day 4 full size candy bars and lots of lollypops with various saying on them.  Today was day 5.  The girls got the above lunch bags with their initials cut out using one of the Hannah Montana Fonts and iron on vinyl.  Had a hard time with the iron being too hot but finally got 27 of them done. Inside were packs of gum (Extra, original vision would be sleeves around the gum that says 'you went the extra mile' but again, time....) A bottle of water, 2 packs of pb crackers, post it note with cute flower cover, a colorful pen and some more candy. A lot more candy LOL.  The boys (3 of them) got t shirts with their favorite sports on them (1 football, 2 soccer) and cool pocket flashlights and something else I can't remember.

Anyway - again, not much but they loved everything and certainly appreciated everything.  Trust me, Housekeepers do NOT get the credit or recognition they so richly deserve. They are often shorted or forgotten with tips, they clean at least 16 toilets a day and make the rooms fresh and clean for our guests.  They rarely complain and when they do it's normally about another room attendant taking their supplies LOL.  Remember to thank a room attendant!

See ya soon!
Hugs & Chirps!

Kricut Krazy is back!

Hello everyone!

I've missed you all!  What a crazy summer it has been.  I just kept walking by my craft room and longing to sit down and do something fun.  I've dabbled in things over the summer but no real crafty fun day.  I've been cooking tons of stuff I find on pinterest (surprisingly most has been a huge hit!) I've tried my hand at washer jewelry - and failed (see photos below) but I'll keep trying.

I didn't realize my phone posted a video I took the other day until I started getting you tube comments and emails LOL So here ya go for those that haven't seen it:




Ok a coupla ya asked about the washer jewelry.  I wanted to make them for my daughters. Krystina's would have Ragan Lyn  on the large washer and 3/14/2013 on the small washer with a blue stone for March.  Amanda's would have Julianna Marie on the large washer and 7/3/2013 on the smaller one along with a red stone for July.  Sigh.  Why does everything look SO much better in my head than i…

Scrappin with my Bug Happy Birthday Blog Hop!

Hey Krazies!

My sweet friend Michelle from Scrappin with my Bug is having a birthday!  We're celebrating by gathering a bunch of fun ladies for a big blog hop that is going to run all weekend long. Lots of fun stuff to see along the way and prizes galore!  Be sure you stop at Michelles blog first to wish her a Happy Birthday! 


My Project
Happy Birthday Michelle!
 Front of the Gate fold card.  I used rub on dots for the top and bottom, 2 buttons to wrap the bakers twine around and cut the flowers from Walk in my garden.  The stamps are misc Birthday stamps and the paper is all DCWV various stacks.  I inked around the flowers with chalk ink (cats eye I think it's called)  Oh and the rub on dot borders are from Stamping Up.  I'm brand new with rubber stamps and will eventually learn how do do it correctly.
 Inside of the card.  It's your Day is from Pink Cricut - one of her stamp sets.... sorry don't remember which. Paper is from DCWV and I inked a lil here and there. 


 Ho…

You are going to LOVE this video. TRUST ME!

How do you store your 12x12 paper?  Do you like those Vertical folders from Cropper Hopper?  See that? 5.88.  I love them, but I needed 15 of them.  I have 5.  Well after putting my thinking cap on I came up with a way to do this for FREE.  and it takes 3 sheets of paper to decorate.  So watch the video then leave me a comment letting me know what you think.

At the end of the video is a contest for some blog candy - who wants a free cartridge?  I don't know what the cartridge is yet because my sponsor didn't tell me what they were sending - so we'll all be surprised YAAAY.

I love comments so please leave me some feedback!
