1 Talented Tuesday 7/29/14 (Give-A-Way, Elephant and Better Together - M.O.M.)


Well, it is Tuesday....yep, it sure is!! I have to tell you that as I look at the calendar and all the things we still have to do before school starts I am starting to get a little concerned!! 

Even my calendar is having concerns.....notice anything wrong?  Yep, it was trying to short me one day!! OOOOOOOPS!!


One because of the little bit of time and the other because of how excited I am to have the kids go back to school this year!!  I am not sure if I am being a good mom right now, but I CAN'T WAIT!!!! This summer has been so busy and so chaotic that I haven't been able to do the things I wanted to....so, when school starts, look out world, Krafty Max is on the way!! ;) 


Today I have decided to do a give-a-way.  I haven't done one in such a LONG TIME!!  I am very excited about this!! I hope that everyone enters and SHARES it with everyone else!!  Have FUN!!



Although this isn't a brand new listing, it brings out the FUN in people!!  I just love the way it turned out.  Some have said it looks like flowers, some say like a birds nest and others....just love it!!  What do you think??

4 Making Monday 7/28/14 (Ms Marrianne Blue Bell, Lucy and DMC Floss)


I hope that your weekend was wonderful, I know mine was!! I was able to spend another weekend with my kids and some time with my hubby too!!  Yep, good weekend!! 

Did you notice that I didn't blog last week?  It was a test!  Yep! The funny thing is that only one person noticed (well, commented to me that they noticed)!!  I was trying to see how many people actually looked/read my blog...not many!  I love writing everything up and I really love showing off my creations, but it often takes me a bit of time to do this!!  So, my concern is - do I continue to do blog posts - do I stop?? 


Some of you saw this on Friday when I was able to list it, but many of you didn't, so I thought I'd show it off!!!

Introducing......Ms. Marrianne Blue Bell

 Also, I have moved all my items over to my Krafty Max Originals ArtFire studio, so if you are looking for that 'special something' (gift certificates too) please go over and visit....or, just look around and make a wish list!!


Did any of you watch my new creation get started??  Here are the colors that I picked...


And here is how far I got.....remember, you can come on over to my Fan Page or Google+ page, I post 'working photos' throughout the day!



And on a personal note, my son talked me into another pet last week...yep...the fish just weren't doing it for him!! So, we now have a long hair hamster named LUCY (from the Narnia movies).  She already has made this her home and loves to be in her ball.  Our dog Ziggy, a Rat Terrier, is so confused about her.  He spends 1/2 of his time watching and moving with her and the other 1/2 of the time sitting on the sideline squeaking - almost like he is afraid of her.  We are still watching REALLY close for an issue between the two, but so far she seems to be just as curious as he is!!
(sorry the photos are blurry...they move to fast!!)





Do any of you use DMC floss? If you do, I have already listed some - lots more to go - in my Krafty Max DESTASH Studio.  I have about 25 more sets to list and lots more to photograph, organize and list.  I also have many other supplies, so if there is something you want/need, let me know - I am sure I have it!!

1 Making Monday 7/21/14 (Kickstarter, Teal and Brown and Blue and Purple)


This past weekend was one of relaxing and spending time with this kids.  I was able to finish one creation and pull the colors to start a new one, but that is about all the beading I did.  So, let's get to the fun, the new listings and the new project!!


Here they are, the new colors.  What do you think? Come on over to my Fan Page or Google+ page, I post 'working photos' throughout the day!
