Be Joyful

Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand. Be anxious for nothing, but in EVERYTHING by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the PEACE OF GOD, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:4-7

These are verses I memorized years ago and they are written on my heart. There are times when I still need to remember not to be anxious, but I eventually listen to my heart saying these verses. I didn't really understand what the "peace of God" was until I experienced it. It's having peace inside you, even when you're going through heartbreaking situations and trials. It does "surpass ALL understanding" and you know it comes from GOD alone. Praise the Lord for His wonderful promises!

I love, love, love what I do. I am passionate about the things I create and the talents God has placed in me. I SO appreciate the time you take to look at my things and the comments you all leave me!

Blessings to you!

Organization of Card Bases, Mats, Diecuts, Images

Hi there!

I guess it's been a while since I posted! I've been busy and have lots more I want to do!

I have another organizational tip that I've been using the past couple of months that has REALLY helped me out. Hope you find it helpful too!

I had a hard time keeping track of and organizing leftovers, rejects, etc. from projects, and decided to keep them all in one place and organized. I originally bought smaller recipe card holder for these at Michaels, but recently found these larger holders that fit even better for $3.00 each. The good news is, I saw these today at Michaels at 60% off...great deal!

These are the two boxes I have.

I have one box that contains all card bases ready to be used. Some of these I made and didn't use, and some I just made extras of to have on hand.

The other box I have I put Die Cuts, Images Stamped (blank), Finished Images Stamped, and Mats that I made, but didn't use.

I find I'm constantly going through these now to see what I already have when I do a project. I keep these on my desk at my fingertips

If you're like me, have leftovers and like to be organized, this might be something you may want to try!

At some point, these would be fun to decorate too!

I LOVE to be organized! It helps me to have more time to do what I love to do...create joyfully made designs!




  1. Kathy, this is a great idea...tfs...PS. You want to come and help me organize my craft room it's a

  2. I love to be organized, but sometimes it's really hard with all the leftovers... I wish I had a real craft room I even keep stamps in boxes. Thanks for the tip! :)


  3. Hi Kathy! You will SO not believe this! I was just going through my inbox of pm's over on Splitcoast Stampers, and saw a conversation we had quite awhile ago, and I saw this project when I clicked over to your gallery, then clicked over here to your blog to scope it out,and THEN I notices that you live IN CORONA!!! I grew up there, then lived there again for about 8 years with my ex-husband and children before he became my ex and I moved to New York. small world! More on topic, though: this is a fabulous idea! I'm all about organization, so this is great! Thanks!


Thank you for blessing me with your sweet comments!
