My favorite time of year! 

We are doing a few things different than we did last year..... 
Instead of the 25 days of Christmas from December 1-25, we ALWAYS like to stay ahead so that you have plenty of time to make your crafts.... so we have started today November 12th. There will be a ton of inspiration and a few of last year's amazing projects, we just might dig them up again for you because they were that great! 


This also is the time of year for our seasonal design team.... 

This is for December 1-31, 2012 
This is not for a permanent place on our design team. This is just to help out our design team who works so hard to create and share with you all year long. We give them time off so they can craft for their homes, families and friends, and just enjoy a little R & R. 
But we want to keep giving you a ton of inspiration. 
So this term is ONLY from December 1-31, 2012.
 It is similar to a guest designer, but for a month rather than just one day. 
So applications are accepted today through Sunday December 2, 11:59pm EST.
The Seasonal team will be announced Monday December 3, 2012 
To apply please email your application to EricasTeam@aol.com 
with the subject line Seasonal DT Application 
Please email me ONE project you have made with your cricut.
Also include your name, facebook name, email address and blog address. 

Beginners are VERY VERY welcome. All I ask for beginner and advanced talent, is that when you post try to give as many instructions as possible. 
You MUST use cricut cartridges, no SVGs and no Digi-stamps. 
During this time there should be NO solicitation for sales of ANY kind. 
This is just to showcase your talent and blog.
You will be posting at least one project a week during December, you may post more if you would like.

Thursday, November 22nd - F.R.O.G


So today's theme is very special.... most people think of a Thanksgiving theme.... We have already shown you plenty of Thanksgiving crafts with time to make them. So today I will share with you another connection of thanks. I do try to not impose my faith on anyone, but today I want to share it..... 

Ever wonder what F.R.O.G. can stand for.... I have seen it two ways....
1. Forever Rely On God
2. Fully Rely On God

When Bella was a not born yet, after I learned what F.R.O.G. stood for I knew she was a girl but decided to decorate her bathroom with Frogs. It was just a subtle little thing that I knew was the reason why.... 

More reasons..... They say people come into your life for a Reason, a Season or a Lifetime..... Everyone I have ever met has come into my life for a reason.... I have been lucky enough to make and meet some new friends who have been around a season or more.... the ones that I value just as much as a reason are those who have come into my life for a lifetime. I have been so blessed with family and friends.... I have that handful of best friends who you cannot talk to for 2 months and you call and they stop what they are doing to come and help you. I will not forget the friends who have come to help me and been there to listen. I still remember a 2:00 am phone call from my best friend when her mom passed away a few years ago.... I got out of bed, still in pajamas and drove an hour just so she could cry and fall asleep in 3 minutes.... I drove an hour each way everyday because she needed it..... She is now a great mom.... sometimes we learn from the mistakes our parents make and make them into the best lessons learned. I know I tell my mom I learned alot from her as a parent.... many things to do and some things not to do. I share both of those with her.... The one thing that I learned the most, or rather something that had the biggest effect on me, was the Christmas that I had to spend with my biological father. It was my worst Christmas EVER. Our Christmas's are so full of traditions and moments and memories made.... Now going through a divorce myself (I am still ashamed of it) I gave up many things so that I could share ALL Christmas Eves with Bella. I will have her from Noon Christmas Eve to noon Christmas day.... Then her dad will get her at Noon each Christmas day. It worked for us. But it was just something that stuck out to me as a child, but it was one of the things I learned as a child that effected me as a parent. Her and I have always had such strong Traditions for Christmas Eve.... I am so excited for this Christmas Eve!!! Well I hope you all have a wonderful and blessed.... Merry Almost Christmas!
