Why you need Aloette in your life too!

I could just listen to Chrystal talk forever she’s so much fun and since  she does a much better job explaining why Aloette is AMAZING for its healing properties with your skin than I could I will share her video for your listening pleasure! 

 

The healing benefits I saw with my psoriasis is why I fell in love with Aloette and why I love sharing it - everyone should feel comfortable in their own skin!!!


Come join me over on Facebook in my VIP group to stay up to date with current flyers and sales cause why pay retail when you can get these amazing products with added value at even more affordable pricing!

Watercolour background fun!

 Loving this Artisan Design Team Tip from fellow demo Zsuanna! 



For this stunning background you need / large acrylic block, a piece of clear window sheet, stampin ' blends (dark, 2-3 colors) and rubbing alcohol.

Just stunning works of art ... mixed media is always my favourite! I love the messy fun it’s so therapeutic!

You can order supplies to create this technique on my website

Happy Stampin'

It’s Paper Pumpkin time

 I am so excited each Month waiting for my Paper Pumpkin subscription - the Jolly Holly is on it’s way now - reminds me of being little and getting $1 to buy candy at the store and choosing one of those “surprise bags” that you rushed to get home and dump out all the penny candies inside it!


Except the Paper Pumpkin won’t rot your teeth 🤣


Sign up before the 10th of November to get the Jolly Gingerbread Kit! Here’s a little sneak peek!

Fat bombs 💣

 Stocked up some more of the fat bombs today .... chocolate almond cheesecake fat bombs! Nom nom! 






So easy to make!

1. Let Butter and cream cheese get room temp. 2. Blend room temp nut butter, butter and cream cheese ingredients very well and form into 40 small bite size balls on parchment paper lines tray - roll the balls in coconut or unsweetened cocoa or a mix of both if desired - pop in freezer to chill and firm and than transfer to storage container and keep in fridge or freezer until ready to eat. 

Bon Appetite

Progress makes me Happy!

 I am so grateful to be able to be back at the @bostwickymca and hats off to all the amazing staff keeping everyone safe with all the extra cleaning and the physical distancing protocols! It was a long few months with everything closed and my poor health took a tole from the stress Covid sent us! Not just the grateful for physical benefits but the mental health as well that getting out and swimming provides!


Cleaning eating combined with back to 4 days a week of lane swimming and aqua jogging and I am down 20 pounds ... slow and steady working towards my goal! 

What’d your go to exercise regime for mental health?

Sketch time over at the Nerds!

 Hey there Margaret here guest designing for the Scrapbook Nerds over on Facebook - we are excited to share a wonderful Made by Melina sketch with you this week! Hope you come along and play! She has both scrapbook layout sketch and a modified card sketch for us!

 For my take on the sketch I did both a landscape and a portrait layout featuring one of my favorite Salted Background techniques! You can get the reinkers , watercolour paper and aqua brushes needed for this technique from the Nerds too!
I paired my technique with background with scraps from my Vicik Boutin Wildflower and Honey papers and the Sticker sheets over on the Scrapbook nerds online store!
Love how no two backgrounds turn out the same with this technique - but the colors blend perfectly together!

Happy Paper Craftin'
