Vision Board 2019

"I was gone but now I'm back!" ( Back in My Bag , Aha Gazelle) It has been a while since I have posted & I think I am happy to be back! I am trying to commit myself to posting here went to start, so please bear with me as I get into my rhythm & flow. This first post is inspired by my recent love for podcasts & planning. I was listening to one of my favorite podcasts & was reminded that I hadn't done a vision board for this year yet. I also realized that last year, I didn't do anything at all around my vision, so I needed to remedy that. I posted on my Instagram ( @MMDeZigns ) and Facebook page about the vision board I created for my planner & I am going to share that post here as well. Do you have a vision board? If you plan, do you include it in your planner? ----- Finally got around to doing my #VisionBoard for this year. I realized that I no longer subscribe to print media (newspaper, magazines, etc.), so I needed a different way

Foil Printing - I am hooked!

So, I was contracted by my cousin to make her wedding invitations last fall. They came out great, but there was an element that she wanted that I couldn't do - she wanted elements of her invite in gold... Uhm, how do I do that??  Unfortunately, I couldn't get it figured out in time for her wedding, but I kept looking. Eventually, I came across a blog post on Pinterest entitled DIY Gold Foil Prints . I saw that I needed to print with a laser printer and use a laminator... ok, I guess, but I don't have a laser printer at home, so it became a project I might get around to trying out later... Well, later came this past week when I found some Deco Foil on clearance at Michael's. I quickly added it to my cart and brought it home. I have a laminator in the form of my YourStory machine but I still needed to print. Ah ha! Most businesses have laser printers, so there I had it. I put together some random words & phrases and pictures of butterflies (I like butterflies L

Didn't know that could happen - my apologies

I realized that I had let an entire month go by this year and hasn't posted anything to my blog... "I have to do better," I said to myself. How surprised was I to find that what appeared to be spam emails had been posted to my blog - how in the world does that happen?!? I apologize to anyone who is following or subscribing who may have received those spam posts. I will be being more vigilant moving forward to insure this doesn't gotten anymore. Stay tuned for more of what I've been making, deals & steals for cool crafty things, and more!

Detroit Lions

I am from Detroit and I love my city! Don't we all lol! I was commissioned by a friend off a co-worker to make a Detroit Lions themed birthday card for her boyfriend. She explained that her gift to him was going to be tickets to an upcoming Lions game. So I set out to see what I could come up with. I finally turned to my trusty Cricut Expression and Cricut Craft Room. I had recently branched out and subscribed to the Cricut Library giving me access to thousands of images - I just knew somewhere in there would be the lion that I needed. I found this lion card on the French Manor cartridge & it was perfect!

Feeling Blue...

I was asked to create two cards for two different occasions but the same/similar cards. I challenged myself to make two different cards, different designs, different shades of the same color. The outcome was pretty good, if I do say so myself ;-). Thanks for stopping by!
