Pixie Plates 259-262 by Neverland Scraps

I LOVE love LoVe templates!!  They're so much fun and I end up creating pages that I never would have come up with on my own when I use a template.  This week I got to play with Pixie Plates 259-262 by Neverland Scraps.  I really had fun with these.  I re-sized everything to make it all work for me, but that's part of what makes templates fun, I can add, remove or change it up to make it mine.

AJC 2012 Parcel 9 by Tangie Baxter

I picked this little Parcel up a LONG time ago, knowing that the perfect moment would eventually come to use it.  Last week's quote prompt in the Art Journal Caravan happened to present the perfect opportunity.

Mind Behavior by Rucola Designs

I just finished up another page for my 2012 Quote Book.  This page was inspired by a prompt from the Art Journal Caravan 2012.  I used a new kit by Rucola Designs called Mind Behavior which seemed perfect for the quote!  This kit is currently available for just $5.20 at Deviant Scrap.

Solavei: Time to get PAID!!!

I know that up until now this blog has been all about my art projects, which has been fun, but that wasn't my sole intention for this blog.  My plans were actually to write about all sorts of things that make my world go round and today I have a new subject to write about... making money with Solavei!

We all like getting paid, right?  I know it's a silly question, but really, does anyone NOT want to get paid?  Leonard has always said that if I found a business I was passionate about I'd do well.  I think I've found it.  For years now I've watched friends and strangers upgrade their phones to smart phones (spending loads of their hard earned money to do so) while I sat idly by with my "dumb phone" wishing there was a way I could enjoy the fun things they were able to do with their smart phones.  The time has come and I'm excited to join the world of Smart Phones!

Back in September a new company started up called Solavei.  Solavei is a Network Marketing company that specializes in Mobile Service.  The company has partnered with T-Mobile to provide affordable cell phone service to the average person.  For just $49 per month you can have unlimited talk, text and data.  You can use your own phone or you can get one from Solavei on the cheap (that's what I chose)!   You can take a look to see if your area is covered by clicking HERE.  Once you've done that just follow the prompts to get started.  You don't even have to wait until you get your phone to start sharing the news.  Tell your friends and family about the great deal you're getting and when they sign up, you get paid.

But wait!!!  There's more!  (I've always wanted to say that LOL).  If you enroll before December 31st you can get your phone free!  Can't beat that deal.  Oh, and did I mention... there are no contracts, you can quit any time you want (as if you'd want...)

I'll be back soon to tell you all about my getting started experience.  It was so easy you won't believe it!

Get paid using your smart phone with Solavei

By the Campfire by Blue Heart Scraps

For December my Designer Partner over at Ginger Scraps has been Blue Heart Scraps.  Her style reminds me a lot of true paper scrapping and that can really spark my imagination.  I decided it would be fun to make a wall hanging with a very neat quote I saw in Latin in a book I just completed.
