Hi everyone!

I’m back! Finally. The kids are on vacation, and we all got the worst tummy bug the last few days. THAT is never fun. Jay and I were also sick at the same time, so that makes it even harder taking care of the kids. Usually only ONE of us gets sick first, but not this time. Thankfully it didn’t last too long.

Anyway we are all on the mend now!

Hope you are all enjoying whatever weather you are having. We had now yesterday, rain today. Poor Jay. He got a snowmobile this winter and hasn’t gotten to use it much at all. Usually in New England we get slammed with snow, and this season has been relatively MILD. Don’t tell him, but I don’t mind too much! Getting the kids all done up in their winter gear is exhausting.

I’m getting ready for the My Time Made Easy ™ LLC March Release. Peeks start tomorrow!!

You all begged for peeks so this time we will give it go!

Here is a snippet of a sample of what is to come!


There is something for everyone this release….wait until you see….

Could it get any cuter?!! Melissa is just so amazing. I LOVE her stuff! LOVE!

I especially love the Sick Lily and Billy!! I so should have remembered to pull those out to play this past week. Instead I had too much fun using all three of the Lily Bug images!!

Now I don’t know what it is but I am in quite the CARD funk!! Obviously it certainly has NOTHING to do with the UBER cute images :D. Between designing stamps, templates and cut files my brain just doesn’t want to think CARDS! So I apologize for the lack of that certain something that is missing.

Hello Friend Lily Butterfly


OBVIOUSLY she was going to be my absolute FAVE! I don’t think she could possibly get cuter!

I so enjoyed coloring her. I normally would go with PINK or PURPLE but tried to step outside my little color box! And normally she’s have blond hair! So I was proud of that.

I got this paper pack and cannot for the life of me remember when, or where! I loved the flowers along the bottom of one of the pages. There are some funky flowers in it, and some lady bug paper (scroll down for a peek at that).

 I decided to layer the flowers on to a tag (part of my next release!). I uses a rub-on and a epoxy sticker for my sentiments here.

Now here is a quick project Amber did for her BFF Emma


Being the “bad mom” I am (as this party fell mid release week for me) we didn’t make a card (GASP!) I KNOW! I’m awful! Trust me I have plenty of guilt! I so should have used the craft hour the day before to do that with her, but totally spaced. I was lucky enough to remember to take her shopping for the gift! LOL! I’m sure some of you can relate.

 So the morning of the party I told Amber we had to make a quick tag instead. I mean QUICK! The bag was pink and purple (see told you I love those colors! LOL!) and so I had Amber stamp and color Lily. I gathered all the Copic markers in the colors we needed (yes believe it or not my 5 yo is allowed to use my precious Copic markers! She does a wonderful job and takes good care of them!), and she got to work as I wrapped the gift.

She colored her (except for the cheeks) and I cut her out because we had like 10 minutes left till we had to leave for the party.


We punched a flower out, punched a hole in the center, and grabbed a Blow Pop!

Amber signed it ( with pop in flower because I didn’t even think to just slide it out I was in such a flurry) then we taped it to the bag and we were done!

I BARELY had time to get a photo. But she was proud so I took the 3 minutes we didn’t have to make sure I got at least these.

I would have liked to at least wrap the pop with tulle and wrap the stick but Emma didn’t care. She was happy to get a candy tag.

OK moving on….

Lily Bee


She has a beehive hair do and all! Love it. I had this paper from Basic Grey for what seems like over a year, and have FINALLY got around to using it. It actually became my inspiration for my colors. Again I would have gone with other colors typically….but was so happy to try something different.

The sentiment is from another PCS set: Fairy Friends

I thought is was cute, even though she is a bee! LOL! She is a bee fairy to me.

OK another cute lil bug….

Lily Lady Bug


This one used that Lady bug patterned paper and some ?Cosmo Cricket paper I believe. I love mixing paper companies/patterns/colors.

Now this is the typical Lily color scheme you’d see from me and yet my least favorite of the creations! LOL! GO FIGURE!

I kept it sweet and simple. I love the colors, but my layout was truly lacking something. I needed a sentiment but it just never came together. See we all hit walls and ruts. If the release wasn’t today I would have let this sit until something sparked my fancy. I should have used a sentiment that came with the set, but I wasn’t seeing where. Probably that upper right corner, but it may have unbalanced the card…anywho….what is done is done.

I hope you enjoy all the eye candy from the team! You really need to check it all out.

Please come back tomorrow as you will NOT want to miss what we have to share. For the next 3 days some team members and I will be taking turns sharing peeks at what is to come from the MTME March 1st release! Something for everyone.

The Pretty Packaging © templates alone will leave your jaw on the floor-I promise!

See you then.
