Starting a Brand New Day!!

Welcome to
My Mouse Dreams

First Thank you for stopping by. It means a lot to me.
I haven't been blogging a lot since this past June.
I left being a demonstrator for Stampin Up during this time too.
I had Cancer.
I have had surgery and a very long recovery process, I am still recovering
I think.

I am doing so much better than before.
So I am back to work.
I re-joined Stampin Up ....which I love!!
I so enjoy the fact of products the color coordinate
with each other. Makes my crafting time even more fun!!

I will be doing more videos and my first one should debut
this coming Friday.
I will also be starting my first give away and hosting a
Welcome Back Party
They will be all kinds of free gifts and giveaways!!
You will be seeing tons of changes to the blogs design!!

Well I am YEARS behind....but....
Stampin Up is joining together with Project Life!!

Project Two Hundred Twenty-Eight

Happy Monday everyone!
I am in love with Halloween ... so I am hoping to showcase some of the cute Halloween projects I made for my Etsy Store 
This card I made using some of my favorite Halloween Stamps ...
Peachy Keen Stamps stopped making rubber stamps a few years back.
So when I used them I thought I would showcase their awesome face stamps.
BUT ...she started having Digital Stamps.
Today's cute little Zombie is not part of the new digi stamps but Wednesday's
project is ... hint I used the Fankie stamp.
I colored using my Copics.
I used wink of Stella on her hair, shoes and the cute skull
I hate how it never seems to show up on photos ...
so much cuter in person!!
Now years ago when I bought these she also had the cutest Zombie faces to go with it
I didn't get them and boy I should have ....
Hope you have a Happy Halloween

Project Two Hundred Twenty-Four

It has been too long my friends!!
Thank you for sticking with me!!
So my husband and I have started working my crafts into a
business. We have gone to a couple of craft shows in the area and have done well.
We are working towards a goal of him working full time with me and doing craft shows around the country as a full time business. We hope to start doing full time
traveling this coming March 2017.
I should be blogging a lot more in the weeks to come. I have so many
cute things that I have been working on that I haven't shown you yet!!
I had a special request for a rustic Halloween block set.
SO I ended up doing 3 extras for my
Etsy store. So today I am showcasing the first set that I kept in natural wood.
I think it is adorable. The block set is reversible so one side says Boo with a cute ghost
and the other side says Fall. Tell me what you think. They are rustic ....
I really wish the photos really showed the background papers better.
I am working on my photography skills .....
I found a cool light box you can build hint hint HUBBY!!
I am working on right now really cute Thanksgiving and Christmas Signs

Project Two Hundred Eleven

Hello my Friends!!
So I am starting to heal. I am sore and the incisions are starting to itch,
which is a good sign! We are waiting for the pathology reports and our next appointment
with the oncologist is August 2nd. So far from what her said to my darling hubby after
the surgery that is look better than even he thought.
Thank you for your prayers and concerns.
Ok on to today's project.
I like a good challenge, and for awhile I had stopped doing them.
Well, I felt a bit better so I snooped around and found the current
sketch challenge over at My Favorite Things
My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge #290
Here is the sketch
Here is what I came up with
OK so I was so happy how this came out.
I first stamped the image, then I let it dry. I have no patience.
so letting it dry is hard for me.
Then I applied a liquid masking solution. Let it dry over night.
The next morning I used my MFT ink pads and using my blending tool
created the night sky. I then peeled off the masking tape and colored my mummy!
This is the first time I let the whole process and dry before rushing to
the next step! I love how it turned out. I used my Copics to color the mummy and added
Wink of Stella for her costume!
Ok MFT Products Used
Copics Used
Skin: E00, E50, E51, E11, E93
Mummy: N1, N3 and colorless Blender

Welcome Back my Friends!!
So I have set this to post for Friday July 15th.
When this posts I will be in the Hospital.
I haven't yet talked about this but on June 10 of this year
I was diagnosed with Uterine Cancer. The first step in treatment
is a full hysterectomy. Which they are doing today.
They will also be staging the cancer at that time to determine if further
treatment will be necessary. Please keep me and my family in your prayers!
OK on to something much more fun!
I am still participating in
Today I am showing Day 3 Inlaid Made Easy!
