It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

This was on the front steps of the house yesterday waiting for me. Rick isn't able to get to the door so Fed Ex left it right on the door step. Sorry Rick for finding one of my Christmas gifts.

Then this arrived Tuesday. A really cool gift basket loaded with some awesome treats. There is also a table runner and cutting board in there too. this arrived from my company. Last year they sent one as well. They are always beautiful and always full of great food.

I have always wanted a KitchenAid Mixer for as long as I can remember but didn't want to spend the five hundred dollars they cost on them. I didn't want the one you find in Kohls or Target but I wanted the heavy duty pro series 600 with lift bowl. Rick did an amazing job and found this one at Amazon for a KILLER deal and a rebate.
I love Black Friday deals and I love Amazon because all week long they have had black friday deals with free shipping. Rick bought this on Sunday and it ended up at our door yesterday.
I can't wait to make cupcakes with this baby.....

SVG update

Wow, I have received several emails asking me what you can do with an SVG file
okay let me try to explain it as I am new to it too. SVG is a cutting file you can use for your cricut machine using the sure cuts a lot program. As far as I know you have to have the SCAL program on your computer to use the SVG. I am however going to send this to Dina and see if she can enlighten us more.
So, stay tuned and while we are waiting on an answer make sure you click on treasure box designs and check out their amazing cut files.

SCAL and SVG files

Check out this only $5.99 for the entire collection. reg 9.99
Check out this little guy can you believe only $1.20 cents for the SVG file reg. 2.00

I bet some of you are thinking what is SCAL? well, I know I did. Now I know that SCAL is short for Sure Cuts A Lot and boy does it ever.

For those of you who have been following for a time you know that last year Rick surprised me with a Cricut Expression for Christmas. I have bought oh 20 cartridges for it and I was thinking boy it sure gets expensive buying these cartridges that cut oh maybe 75-100 images. There must be a better way......

Duh and I mean Duh

over at we were chatting and Elaine said you need SCAL well after a week of her trying to explain it to me I bought it and wow. Wait I didn't say that loud enough WOW WOW WOW not only can you search the web for free files but you can also buy files and some of them just take your breath away. HERE is one such place and I will be putting her site on my side bar for future use.

Treasure Box Designs and what a treasure they are and now they are 40% off but hurry because I don't know how long they will be on sale. Dina is amazing I tell you forget spending tons of money on cartridges where you will only use a few go here first.

Now you must have SCAL program for the SVG files but she also has files to download for DIGI stamps too.

So hurry on over and check it out and tell Dina that Veronica sent you

we have to simply raise our hand and say I GIVE UP. Today was one of those days. I had to unjoin several yahoo groups that I belonged too. I simply don't have time any longer. I am leading my ATC challenge at and I REALLY love doing that. I have been doing it almost a year now and that is so much fun that I truly don't have much time for other groups. So, please understand....... why I had to leave all the other groups. Before I hadn't found my niche or my voice. Since then I have and I am so loving all the ATC's that I get to create.
Haylie Jo and Vicki and all my fellow creative team members help fuel my desire and my need to create.
I have really found a home there.......... as for my blog. Yes, I will keep it up but I may only be able to post a couple times a week instead of everyday. I also will keep trying to post all my ATC's that I have been making.
Hugs to all

Where does the time go?

This ATC I made using Shrinky Dink for my Novemember atc challenge at
I used my amazing Timmy Holtz's stamp set for this atc.
I also am making seven ATC's for my monthly ATC swap with Patti. This sin would be ENVY and the reason for ENVY ..... I am so envious of this skinny
and I am envious that she is in Paris with this skinny body.

Now the one on the left is called Summers in the south I also used shrinky dink on this one as well.
The one on the right is PRIDE another of the 7 deadly sins. Pride for having not a hair out of place with perfect red lips.
I would love to have everyone join me over at and join my monthly ATC challenges.

Seems like forever since I have been here. I was in Dallas for a week this past week attending meetings. Got home Friday night after my flight kept being delayed out of Dallas. I was so excited when the plane landed.

Today of course with Daylight savings time I gained an hour but I can't tell you what I did with it. lol

I did take a few minutes today to make three ATC cards so here you go....
