Remember . . .


. . . . . .  that you are a daughter of God.

I loved this on Pinterest, so I thought I would share . . . 

Have a lovely day!

And they lived happily ever after . . .


 It has been 1 1/2 years since I closed My Craft Spot!!  Time flies!

Not sure if any of you are still out there reading my blog anymore, but I thought I would give you an update.  My youngest daughter is doing much better . . . healthier and happier. Yay!  I have enjoyed the extra time with my family! :)

My oldest son, Josh, just got married at the end of June to his sweetheart, Jessica. We love her very much! They are great together!  Here are some pictures:


Yes, she has the same name as my oldest daughter, Jessica.  It can get a little confusing when our family gathers. Ha ha ha.


Did you know that Shout makes wipes for stains on the go?  Just sayin' . . .  ;)


Isn't Jessica beautiful?!  


My youngest daughter, Natasha, was so excited to get to do Jessica's makeup.


Josh and Jessica started dating in High School and wrote letters for 2 years while he served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.



It didn't take long after he returned for them to decide they couldn't live without each other.


They had a 'donut cake' instead of a traditional wedding cake and it was delicious!

 

The only 'crafty' thing I did for this wedding was the vinyl saying on the back of their getaway car.  It is a silhouette file that I stretched to about 36".  If you can't tell from the picture, it says "and they lived happily ever after".

 

"Marriage - if you want something to last forever you treat it differently. You shield it and protect it. You never abuse it. You don't expose it to the elements. you don't make it common or ordinary. If it ever becomes tarnished, you lovingly polish it until it gleams like new. It becomes special because you have made it so, and it grows more beautiful and precious as time goes by." -F. Burton Howard
 
 

They were sealed for time and all eternity in the Payson Utah temple

 


. . . and my daughter, Brittany, is going to serve a 1 1/2 year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Arizona!  She is so excited! We will miss her a lot . . . 
  

It is bittersweet to watch your children grow up, leave the nest, and become the men and women that you always hoped they would become.  Life is good!!

DT post by Gwen - Toad-ally cute Valentines!


As soon as I saw these funny little frogs in the silhouette store I knew I had to use them.  They only come as print and cut, I did two of them cutting on the edge and one I added a border.  


This one is 3.5" x 3.5", I stamped the heart on the front  and the inside sentiment with the Build a Valentine stamp set from My Craft Spot.



The hearts on this one was stamped with the Build a Valentine stamp set also.  I put glossy accents on the hearts, not sure I like it.  It made the ink change color and bleed a little.  I cut the hearts out with the Small alphabet Metal Dies.


For this one I used the Build a Valentine stamp set for the toad-ally and used Tiny Tags 2  for the love u.  The inside sentiment is the same for both of these cards and it was made with the Build a Valentine stamp set.

DT Post by Lisa - Happy Birthday!


Hello, everyone!! Lisa here one last time to share a project with you using some of my very favorite My Craft Spot products!!


It's cold and snowy here, so I wanted something colorful that would make me think of spring :) I started with the gorgeous Spring Breeze Crinkle Ribbon...it's such a beautiful color. The butterflies are from the Small Alphabet die set, and they were covered in sugar coating.


The banners are Ribbons Banners Straight dies. Tiny Doily Dies were used for the sentiment and each of the three layers were popped up with foam for dimension. 'Happy Birthday' is from Simply Sentiments.

For more details, please visit my blog, A Mermaid's Crafts. Thanks so much for stopping by!!
