NO Rock for me! :( lol

Hello ladies!!! I have missed you all. As sad as I was to wake up Christmas morning and not find The Rock sitting under my tree wtih his huge red bow and a smile I managed to have a great day! I did get a red Wii!!! Great little machine to keep you mind busy and body fit! WOW, I have been playing on that thing for hours. I might not have time for nothing else! For the first time in like 3 or 4 years my husband and I actually spent 6 hours playing together!!!! and had fun!!! Usually I'm in my studio, creating and he will be playing his Xbox. but the last few days we have been bowling, playing softball and golf!
 I also got the Wii Fit and ladies, if you EVER considered joining a gym, but couldnt because of the membership expense, the contracts and finding time to get there, please consider buyin the Wii and the Wii fit. I know I sound like a commercial, but omg...this machine is awesome. I have been doing Yoga, aerobics and finding my balance all while having fun. It tracks your weight and all your progress. Its ideal for weight loss and its fun!!! You should try it. I love it, the best gift ever!!!
I have been taking a break from crafting, 1st cause I was sooooooooooo sick and now because of the Wii, but soon after the new year I will be posting some projects.  Please keep checking back.
How was all of your Christmas?? Please share with me, let me know your still out there!
love you all....
If your planning on going out to Celebrate the New Year please be safe!!!

Hello ladies, no I haven't forgotten you guys...I just have not been doing very well this December.  What ever I had a few weeks ago, has come back for round 2!! All I want to do is lay around and groan n moan!  I wanted to apologize for not being able to put out the tutorial on the mini tag album for those that requested it! I just havent much had the energy to do so.  And if you guys follow Krytals blog you are aware that she has been fighting strep throat!  Not a fun few weeks for us gals!   But I promise as soon as I get to feeling better I will try and post that tut. I apologize! 
I hope you all are doing well and that your Christmas preparations are well on their way!!!

Love, hugs and kiss

Tick Tock, Time is running out!

Hello, I'm getting excited about Christmas! My girls love opening presents, they are grown, yet I love to see their faces when they unwrap the boxes. Every year I have to  wait longer and longer to wrap them and put them under the tree because they go over and shake them, and try to guess what' in them. Krystal always want to take ALL her gifts and put them together in a pile...then Brandi likes to rearrange ALL the fits by size and box shape! She will do this 3 , 4 times!!! lol It just too cute.  Brandon has been so good at not messing with the tree, he just takes his little finger and touches the ball ornaments ever so gently, he is such a good kid!! My heart, next only to my girls.
But for the following project...I wont say much about since I do ALOT of talking in this video. I will say that this mini a lot like the black and red mini I posted a few days ago.  You can find this mini up for auction HERE or do a search for JAFDT...but I think I SAY all this in the video except I say "this is day 5, I neglected to say that Im 5 days behind! lol !!! okkk so here goes...enjoy... xoxoxo

and as always

I want the warmth back! Blk n Red mini album

Hi...ok...who ever wished winter was here...take it back! lol It is soooo cold tonight. The weather man said the words..."Freezing" or "Below Freezing temperatures!" What? But I live in Floirda!! Sunny, hot, humid!! ahhhh, never happy lol cause if you scroll down and read my summer posts I think you can find me complaining about the heat! lol Hey its my god givng right to lol So needless to say I intend on staying indoor A WHOLE LOT!   Plus notice how much heavier the traffic gets around this holiday? Why is that? where are all these drivers during the other 11 months of the year? Do they ONLY come out to shopp for Christmas??? It's so odd!

Well. enough of that...for some inspiration. I think I'm addicted to creating paper bag albums. We are on day 6 of the 12 days of christmas over on ebay but this is my 3 project for day 3, Im a wee bit behind! lol Ima-trying though!! like the little engine that could. :) Our theme was black and red.

I hope you like this and that it inspires you to create Christmas projects outside the green and red color scheme!
If interested in this mini album click HERE or type JAFDT on the ebay search window. THANKS!

And as always...

Mini Tag Album

Hi all...I hope everyone had a great weekend. I did! I kept Brandon from Friday night thru Sunday about 2pm.  I had so much fun with the little fellow. He is at the kissing and hugging stage and I just eat that up!!!
I also visited a Ustream class hosted by one of the members of the GGGals... their blog is at  I had a lot of fun chatting with the ladies and learning a few techniques!
And I even won a prize!!! whoo hooo!! I never win anything sooo I was very excited to have won!

Now for my portion of is a video I made of a Tag Mini Album. Its really easy to make and holds tons of pictures. The embellishement of this book has to stay to a minimum because of all the folds and bends this book makes.  I hope you like it and that it inspires you to FOLD paper more often!!

And as always...
Thanks for Stopping

Angel Card and a lil bit about Brandi

Hi all, I have been so busy creating, or trying to. Been really under the weather with flue symptoms! yuck! I get to feeling good one day and the next Im back in bed.  It's been so cold out, we are right in the middle of a cold front and I'm feeling it.
My christmas tree went up 2 days ago, whoyooo! Brandi put it up for me and she did a great job.  She is my LESS is Best girly...she didnt put HALF the onrnaments I put on the poor little tree, but to my surprise it looks awesome!!!   Love to sit in the living room with just the little lights on, so soothing, relaxing.

Brandi also started her own lil blog and joined Krytal and me over at the ebay Design Team...she is making mini albums and layouts. She also tells you a little something about her. My beautiful baby was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis when she was 15. This was after 15 years of doctors saying it was the flue, it was strep throat, it was Bronchitis! I finally found a doc that took the time to run tests. The diag killed me and for months all I could do was cry,. But she is doing soooo good on her meds and her attitude is just awesome. She has a very mild case of CF, thank goodness, its not in her digestive system -- its only affecting her lungs
 :(.  The only good thing about the diagnosis was that she was finally able to get the meds  & treatments she needed.  The first day after she was diag, we came home, she took her med and for the first time in 15 years that child and the rest of the house hold was able to sleep thru the night with out coughing! It was a blessing.  All in all, Brandi is a great kid.  She is in her second semester in college and wants to be a teacher!!!  Please show her some love and visit her blog at:
I don't just come out and talk about it, but I figured if you all visit her blog and read it you would find out anyway since she has her meds and other info on there! lol

Ok now for this...

Im STILL tryin my hand at cards! not going to well, lol I think I attempted several cards before coming up with this one.  I always thought cards would be "Quick" and "Esay",,, ummmm WRONG! lol 
So here is my Angel current up for auction on ebay click HERE to go over to our auctions. JAFDT has several christmas project up for auction.  She is colored in with gel glitter pens and the purple ribbon flower is made by ME! ((I'm hooked on making those now!))

Ok well here is my card...

Well as always....
