About Me

Ok so Misfit Crafter, let me explain. To me being a maker, crafty person, artsy being has made me feel less like a so called Misfit. So really Misfit I see as someone who just goes with the flow of life. So I am a Misfit Crafter. Also I am a mom of two beautiful beings & a wife & so much more.

Simple Stories Party

I really love the  Simple Stories line. I was first introduced to it by Memory Works as a rep. Memory Works is lots of great scrapbooking supplies and more. So I decided to try out for the design team yesterday was the deadline and I have been trying to get my submission in. My kids have been sick for what seems like forever so it was tough and my camera is against me right now so I was waiting to finish off taking pictures till my camera was working again but it's still broken. So I finally gave in and used my phone to take the pictures. So here is what I created for the submission.

YOU Have My Whole Heart Card

This was a fun Challenge.

The rules...

  • Use the theme “YOU”.
  • Use this month’s sketch by Anam Stubbington as your starting point.
  • Use 80% My Mind’s Eye products.  That means our products will be the main focus (besides the photo and story you share).

Simple Valentine Popcorn Treat Bags

I have to say first off I got the idea to make popcorn treats at Nest of Posies.

OK, so i thought hey I can do this. But of course i had to fall asleep in the middle of the day and not wake up till after 6pm last night because I was trying to recover from still being sick after 3 weeks of catching colds and flu's etc.  So I jumped up cooked dinner, ate then ran to Michael's 20 minutes before it closed, got my bag of Candy melts ( only because my mom and kids surprised me a week earlier by making candies with the melts I had already bought early so I would not have to rush) and some bags to put the treats in. Then ran to Kmart only thing open after 9pm close by and got popcorn. Then ran home and started on the Popcorn Confetti.

Only to realize I did not read the directions right on melting the melts, even though I have used them tons of times before and always gotten right. So I over cooked the melts.
So as not to go on it was a struggle getting these treats done but it is really a simple process and was all worth it. Oh and I had to improvise because i did not have enough of anything.

So ok here are the bags...
