RIP and Some Fun Cards

RIP and Some Fun Cards

RIP to my laptop of 14 years.  It’s really amazing how you become so comfortable with the keyboard and how things are set up on one computer.  I knew that I needed to upgrade because my laptop’s hardware was too old for the new stuff coming out.  It’s hard to say goodbye to an old friend so I’ve just kept hanging on. Then we found this:


Somehow, after 14 years, it’s clear that the computer has been dropped or hit to break off a corner.  You can’t open it without substantially damaging the top part of the computer.  Which we had to do so we could backup all the information and get it ready to transfer to a new laptop.  Back to trying to blog on a phone!

In the mean time, I’ve created a few cards with the “Dad Is Rad” kit for fun.  My first card is a “Hidden Corner” card (instructions in my Linda Creates Special Peeps Customer Group):


Open it up and you get this:


My next card is a “Sliding” card (instructions will be posted in the group).  This is a simple, fun card which you can very easily make:


I used a few other stamp sets for this card.  All fitting to celebrate your Dad.  I did a FB live on my FB Page about this card.  You can catch that for more details.

May things to keep in mind:

Thanks for stopping by corner of the internet.  RIP to my old computer and hello to a new one.  Have fun with “Dad is Rad.   Have a creative day!


Throwback Fun

Throwback Fun

Amazon popped up some great pictures today of a crop in Guam with some of my favorite peeps.  It’s a great throwback and makes me really miss our time in Guam.  We had a fantastic home (large and wonderful view) in Guam and cropped several times a month.  Here’s some fun pictures from that night.

We are actually working on altered books at this event. This group was very creative and loved exploring all different types of art. They led me on several marvelous adventures info their quest to learn more and be creative.

In the midst of all of this creating, we had a great deal of fun.  The sense of humor these ladies have is amazing.  We were together through some challenging times.  We made it to the other side.   The belly laughs were so worth it.  I love how crafting together helped us bond.


Best of all, from this group, I gained some life long friends. Friends I’m able to laugh, cry, and share life with. CTMH had always helped me get settled into a new area and make friends.  One of my closest friends, LeeAnn, is from Guam and she’s SG’s Godmom.

Don’t you just love her smile? 3 of these 5 ladies have been consultants with CTMH one time or another.  CTMH is not just crafting, it’s family!!  Come and join the fun by joining the team!  Join Our Fun!  Hope you enjoyed the my throwback!

Builders Board

Builders’ Board

SG had a project to be an inventor.  I created a bulletin board to celebrate all of the student’s work.  It was so fun to read all of the different ideas they can and how they created inventions!  This is not my most creative board as I was trying to capture some different words they used to describe what they did.

Thank goodness for the Cricut and having all these different fonts and images to use to make the board more interesting.


Are these ideas just amazing for 3rd graders?!  I’m so blessed that I have the time to volunteer and help out.  I thank CTMH for the ability to be my own boss so I can have the time to volunteer in my daughter’s classroom.

May things to keep in mind:

Thanks for stopping by corner of the internet.  I’m so proud of all the kids and excited to make the Builders’ Board   Have a creative day!
