Cards

8 Oct

I created these cards a while ago.

This is one of my favorites. It incorporates polaroids and a hand drawn city.  I mean really. =) too fun.

This card was fun to make. I used my exact-o knife to cut out the heart with the red dots and placed a piece of vellum behind it.  This adds awesome texture and an interesting focal point. =)

Thanks for stopping by and I’ll be sharing more creative stuff with you in the near future.

Blessings,

Mary

More Family Fun…

Baby J exploring in his back yard. Soo cute. =)
My cousin Tiffany making rice crispies.

This was from our large family b-day party that we have about once a quarter. We’ve now moved our family b-day parties to twice a year since everyone is so busy. =) LOL!

I’ll be sharing some crafty videos and cards soon. =)

Family Fun

7 Oct

A week or two ago we went and visited the boys Nana and other family members. It was a lot of fun. =)  Here  are a few pics that I snapped that day.

 

Samuel picking on Brittney and her boyfriend, Josh.

Another great shot of Monica and Jeremy.

Samuel on the big tree swing at Nana's house.

Grandma Mary, Jeremy and Samuel

Samuel and Uncle Aaron chilln' on the couch.

Jeremy....can not believe that he's a freshmen! I'm to young to be a mom of a high schooler. =)

Jeremy, Samuel and Monica (cousins)

This reminds me of my boys dad and his sister (monica's mom) Just like them when they were younger. Memories. =)

This is little Lucy another cousin. She's so cute.

 

Thanks for stopping by and I’ll have more pics to share later on from a family gathering on my side of the family. =)

Blog under construction

3 Oct

I wanted to remind you that I haven’t finished updating my new blog. I am currently working on getting the new blog up and running like my old one. 🙂

In the mean time please feel free to look over my old blog for links and more information. I have also been updating my other business websites and would love to give you those urls.

Old Blog: www.moejoedesigns.blogspot.com
Photography website: www.rubypixelphotography.com
Amuse studios: https://www.amusestudio.com/moejoedesigns
Etsy shop: MDuffek.etsy.com
Designs website: coming soon!

As you can see I have been busy the past few months. I’ve essentially started 3 companies. I am not sure what I was thinking. LOL! I seriously prayed and felt directed by God to go into this direction.

As of right now with going to school full-time, raising my boys (full-time as well) and being involved in ministry, plus being a business owner/designer. I am feeling a tad bit overwhelmed these days. But no complaints. I am blessed beyond measure and the only way I am able to do any of this is because of Jesus! My relationship with him has always and will always come first. He directs my steps everyday and that’s the only reason things get done.  LOL!  seriously… 🙂  Because left up to me I would probably procrastinate. 😉

So please enjoy the other websites and my old blog while I continue to update this one. 🙂

Also I am new to wordpress and am feeling a bit lost. 🙂 Any tips would be helpful.

Blessings,

Mary

Ok so I have not been very good at blogging this past month. Like you, I have been super busy and re-adjusting to our new busy schedules.  School has started for all of us, plus all of our other responsibilities. LOL!

I have been creating and doing a few Amuse Studios workshops and it’s been fabulous.

 

This is a few of the hostess gifts that I’m giving to the hostesses. =)  Plus other goodies.

I will try and stop by here with something crafty one a week. Plus I’m working on some videos too. =)

Have a wonderful week!
