Here is a great bear that I just created. I just love making new creatures. Now all I have to do is figure out how to draw them using my Pazzles....lol...I still draw out just about everything by hand. I need to get them into my Pazzles program so I don't have to do all the cutting. Any how I made another unique gift today. Here it is. It is a gift card holder, for giving those gift cards.
I have also been doing my Curves still, and it is going great. A friend of mine brought me over that new Acai berry juice. Forgot the name of the product. Any ways it seems to be taking the pain from my joints. I tell you I was very sceptical, so I told him let me see what I think at the end of the bottle. I will keep you updated.
Have a blessed day!! Sherry

I didn't plan on this Valentine gift. What I mean is I had a plan to make my kit for the month and wouldn't you know it I forgot that I needed something for my daughters to take to their 4-H auction. So I went to the store and came up with this. I also made one for a boy. They turned out so cute that I decided to make more of them and sell them in my Etsy store.
This is actually quite a nice size too. 4.5 x 11 x 3 and the candy is store bought wrapped and left that way. They are all in the shape of a heart, about the size of a fifty cent piece, and at least a half inch thick. There is creamy milk chocolate, crispies filled and peanutbutter filled. I tried the candies they are good ;) I knwo what about my watching it. Well I couldn't sell it if it had icky candy now could I. :)
Oh, and while I was at the store looking to make this I came up with another cute inexpensive gift. I will sharing it in the next couple of days.
Curves is going well for my MIL and I. We are both very pleased. As for me I am watching my carb intake as well. Bread is the downfall for me.....especially fresh, hot and covered in butter....lol....but I will not have it!! :)

Missed a couple of days posting here. My week was full. I am sure I am dealing with what a lot of us deal with. Juggling life, work and our art. For me, I just can't seem to find all the time that I need to create all the pages and paper piecings that I think up. I mean everywhere you look you see idea's. What is a girl to do????...lol....
I hope to take this Sunday after chuch and design a new set of pages and get my kits going. I have several people in my home town area wanting to get my kits. So tomorrow will be the day to get that done!!
I have this new job as Drivers Ed. Instructor and I tell you, what a fun job!! I love it. It can be challenging once in a while when you get a student who hasn't been practicing.....OH MY, you can just imagine...scarey....lol....Sad thing I had to give a fail to a student today. It was my first. You just don't like days like that as a teacher. Well at least I don't. I did encourage her few, but strong points and sent you out with several pointers.
I will post my new creation tomorrow if completed. Oh, I almost forgot I wanted to post up this Pazzles that I have in my Etsy shop for sale. It is almost new. The only reason I am selling it is that I received a bigger one. So if you are interested in making your own paper piecings for scrapbooks or cards this is the cutting machine for you. You will never have to buy a cartridge!! Be sure to check it out.

Well today was the start of my new exercise program with my MIL. We signed up for the next year and are going 3 times a week. I hope to encourage readers to get out there and make your life better.
Both of us set goals to eat healthier and exercise. I will up date once a month to let you all know of our success. Wish us luck ;)
As to the scrapping aspect of my blog, well I have goals set and an order as to exicute them in. So things are coming. I tried with failure to get a slide show on. I will try again today and see what I am doing wrong. Wish my luck on that. If you have idea's let me know please.
I am also looking for the instruction on how to put up a file. I want a reader to be able to click on the file and down load it. Does any one know the trick? I will be offering paper piecings for cutting machines.
Well off to work for me. Sherry

Well I wanted to kick off my new store on Etsy. www.bearycrafty.etsy.com So I decided to set this blog up to let ya all know about my work.
I will be specializing in Designer Scrapbook Kits. They will be limited as well. So you will have to grab them while you can. I will put up two to three new ones every month. Look for the first to come on or about the 27th of Jan.
I will also be adding Paper Piecings and Tear Bear Art in my store, for the do it yourself person. And I will also have completed pages for those of you who do not have the time to do any of it yourself, but love the art of scrapbooking.
I will be posting Scrap tips and free files for your cutting machines here on my blog. Please give me some time to get set up :) I use a Pazzles so it will either be a pazzles file or an ai file. But that is to come as soon as I get it all figured out....lol....
Remember to check out my store on Etsy
Thanks for reading and many blessings Sherry
