The little crater show: Haul video

So over the rainy weekend I just had to get a few things from Michaels. I have to say that this one on  252 Atlantic Ave in Brooklyn New York does not have a lot of planner items and so I am a bit disappointed but they do have a lot of washi tape. The store is nice and the staff is helpful. So the store gets 7 out of 10 for me.
      I would also love to wish everyone a happy Halloween or happy Samhain. May to be safe & blessed. I hope that you have enjoyed todays video and thank you for stopping by the blog today.

The little crafter show: Mix media Monday

First off would love to wish everyone a safe and happy  Halloween or happy Samhain. May your new year be safe and blessed so motto it be.


    To be honest cannot believe  Monday is already here, November is here in two more days and only three months before this year is gone. I know it's a bunch more days away but time seems to flying. Right now let us just focus on this Monday the day before Halloween or  All Hallows Eve.
     So this page was inspired by the joy of watching my mom craving a pumpkin, then taking the seeds washing them, adding some salt to them & then roasting them in the oven. I loved and still do love the glow of pumpkin with candle shining bright in it.  We don't always do this now but this page brought back all those old Halloween memories.

The little crafter show: Wresting inspired shirt part 2.

I am so very sorry that I was unable to show The cricut easy press on video but I do share my do and don't of how to use it. The Cricut  easy press is a great tool and I would highly recommended if you want  to make iron on items. It is easy to use, not heavy and portable.
     I do high recommend getting a very stable table, not an ironing board and something that will protect the area that you will be working since the easy press does get hot. Keep the guild handle or you can print it out from the cricut website.

The little crafter: Wresting inspired iron shirt.

Thank you, everyone, for listing to this week's podcast, and I hoped that you enjoyed it. In keeping with the theme of wrestling. I have made two designs inspired by wresting. The video will be in two parts because I did not want to go them long. I hope that you enjoyed them and again thank so very much for your support.


     So first up this one is called the king of the ring.  Wresting's a big match, and on the back, I added a phrase that my son loves to use, so I added that to the back of the shirt to make it even more special for my teen. The image of the ring can be found as a free file online, I also can be bought on an Etsy and can be made on Cricut design space. It is so fun and simple. I have to say the free online SVG inspired the design, so I challenged myself to recreate. I know it made for a long video, but the results were so worth it.

So, all I used for this design was a diamond, rectangles and just searched for a pole. Resizing everything to fit, the hardest pa…

Arts, crafts and everything in between: Talking about old wresting with Mr.Des, my son

So this is very fun light hearted podcast. I am thrilled and so happy that David wanted to take part in making a podcast with me. I've always tried to get him to craft with me on the little crafter show but that may never happen so I will take this. I am over the moon to have my very special guest Mr. Des about old wresters, matches, a little bit of this and that.

The little crafter show: Mini planner flip thoug of October 2017

Well hello everyone, sorry no mix media Monday video  this week but I will get it together soon. I also want to let you know that this is not a plan with me video but a flip though video. I have already  worked on a lot of my planner spreads during my time away from YouTube. I will have bunch of other planner ideas such as planner clips and a few more other planner DYI ideas.
      I have to say that a lot of Etsy shops have really inspired and are so full of amazing items to really customize your planner. I also love the fact that they make items not just for MAMBI planners but for all. Some do special in just one kind of planner so read before buy and ask question because some times you can make some other planner items work for you planner. I just learned this and once I get better at I will pass on more information. For now here are the amazing list of Etsy sellers with their shop links. I also want to let you know that I have not been asked to do this and I am not any ones d…

I have to say thank you to you tubers, bloggers and anyone that has posted a photo of you planner clips because it truly had inspired me to give it a shot. I really had a blast making them. I plan on making some more really soon for next month to match each months holiday or season.




Supplies that I used:
Cricut maker Felt - cricut and crafty cuts large paper clips glue gun with glue sticks glue- Elmer's craft bond tacky glue. sequins - Recollection sequin glitter





     For the cricut felt you can use your explore machines and I used summer sky sampler.  I was not happy with crafty cut, because I really that I like a felt that is much stiffer to craft. I also remember reading on the label that you cannot apply any heat to it. I am going to honest I am unsure if you do not have maker if that felt will work for you. If you have used and it did work I would love hear how your project turned out.
     The reason why I use two kind of glue because one is help for a quick hold so …

I also  huge amount of stickers from some very talents Etsy sellers.
     I have found some from Instagram and from the awesome planner Facebooks groups that I am in. I also found some by just giving it a try and buy. I know crazy right but it paid off and now I can help you find some get planner stickers. I also would like to point out that these stickers are not just for the happy planner, so may want to go give them a try.
