Peachy Keen Challenge

Hi beautiful crafty friends! I am so excited that I decided to play in the Peachy Keen Challenge this week. AND AND AND I just ordered the super adorable new face stamps! They are called PK-1385 Cartoon Bombshell Face Assortment! Cuteness right? Do they remind you of anything? Anything? Look around my bloggie blog yup yup super 50's style! I think they are on sale until Saturday or close to that so get them while they are hot. ;)

Just another pic of a different angle! I AM SO LOVIN this little guy! I ended up doing the Cricut.com subscription so be on the lookout for some super cutie pie Cricut projects. This little guy/gal was made using the Create a Critter Cricut cartridge. Stamped with a cutie pie Peachy Face and Happy Easter is a Stampin up sentiment. Oh I also stitched on the card using an Amy Tan stitching kit. 

That is all. Hope you crafties are all having a beautiful day!!! 
Love and Creative Blessings,
Raven

The Numerology Guidebook

Hey beautiful readers! I've recently had the pleasure of reading The Numerology Guidebook by Michelle Buchanan. I've always been interested in Numerology but I've never really taken the time to read it over. Boy did I learn a thing or two. There are a lot of different types of numbers that can be attributed to one person. There are numbers for life path #, destiny #, soul #, personality #, maturity #, birth day #, current name #, pinnacle #, challenge #, personal year #, personal month #, personal day #, essence #, transit #'s along with others but this list is getting long. Basically any one individual has a plethora of different numbers that can aid in helping them know their life paths and how and when to follow them. There are a variety of different ways that you can add up your number as well. I still have no idea which number adding works best for me so I will continue to play around with what feels right. If you enjoy doing math and reading about a positive perspective on your life numbers this is the book for you. I would say this is a great guidebook my only con was that there were too many options for my Scorpio (indecisive) mind. I wish there was only one way to add up your correct numbers. On the flip side I do like that there are three ways to add up your numbers providing variety. "But how do you know what your real number is?" That was my only lingering question.




I would suggest if you are thinking about purchasing this book that you get the physical copy opposed to the digital copy. Only because I would assume it would be a lot easier to flip back and forth between pages when need be. You will be going back to previous pages to assist you in finding your numbers for a variety of them.

Good-bye, Bumps!

Hey beautiful people! I am so excited to share another book review with you all. Hay House always comes out with some pretty amazing books but I have to say this by far is my favorite. As a mother to three young children I'm always looking for books that empower my little ones to think differently. This book was beautifully illustrated and written. It helped them to see a new way of thinking that I've been unable to explain. My kiddos loved this book. The girls (9 &7) were both in awe while I read it to them, they sat quietly and absorbed all the details. Once the entire book had been read both girls ran to a mirror to talk to themselves and their "bumps". The older of my two girls told her sister, "it's okay if they don't go away, let's just start thinking about them differently." My younger daughter has had eczema for the last two years on her face, resulting in tiny bumps. This was a mini version of 'Change Your Thoughts - Change Your Life' and I couldn't have been more elated with the content. I can't wait to see what Saje Dyer comes out with next!I would highly recommend this book to others; especially those who touch the lives of small children I.E. Teachers & Parents!

The Importance of Being Extraordinary

Hey beautiful crafters! I'm here with another review from HayHouse! This time I didn't review a book however a wonderful two CD set called The Importance of Being Extraordinary. I am always in Awe of anything Wayne Dyer puts his heart into and when I first read Eckhart Tolle's The Power of Now I was floored. I think that is the main reason that I got so much out of this wonderful audio set. Placing these two men together for this wonderful adventure through yet another spiritual journey was by far a success. The elementary way in which both men address such pressing topics like our current economy and addiction can help anyone to find comfort in their current approach to the world. This audio was such a fun journey for me that I took the time to digest as I felt that was needed. The time spent listening to this audio workshop is encouraging and uplifting in a way that would normally seem difficult when discussing pressing matters. The conversational tone of this audio allowed me to feel at home in their living room talking with old friends. I would recommend this audio to anyone.

Project Life Spread Week #10

Hey beautiful crafters! I just wanted to take a minute and share my project life spread with you!

This is our week 10. ;) I'm pretty sure all of the cards used are from the Cut & Paste line. ;) P.S. I bought a ton of simple stories cards that I cant wait to share and make spreads with!!! SOOO EXCITED!






 I'm kinda in love with adding elements that are clear. They add such a fun layer and you can still see through. ;) This cutie pie stamp is from Unity it's a stamp set called Tiny Trinity. I stitched that heart!
 I cut these with my Cricut. I haven't used that thing in forever (shhh) don't tell anyone I'm a bad Cricut owner.
This is just a close up of one of my favorite cards. That sentiment is using another Unity stamp called time for…friends & wine.

If you want to enter the Pocket Page Challenge going on this week jog on over HERE! ;)

Love and creative blessings,
Raven

I'm sooo excited yall! I started a challenge blog for all of us project life/snap/photo pocket crafters to inspire and create with eachother! The challenge blog can be found HERE.

Here is my spread for Week 9 as well a some close ups. ;) 


The challenge this week is to create stitching and/or a list on your spread! To read more check out the challenge blog HERE!

Here are some close ups...
 This is my favorite one. I took a piece of Clear craft plastic and used a paper piercer and my stampin up paper-piercing pack essentials Pack to make the small heart and then I stitched it with embroidery thread. 
 I used the same tools on all of these pierced projects. This one is my list. Its a list of the kiddos morning routine. 

 This one is just two holes super simple. ;)

This last one I just used the straight line from the same pack and stitched along the bottom of the text. The stamp sentiment is from Unity Stamps
