Live Shopping Hauls on Black Friday!

Live Google Hang Out on Black Friday

I am hosting a Black Friday event, if you do not know what Google Hang Out is keep reading. It is kind of like Skype, I think most of you have heard of that. We can have up to 10 people in the video and be live on youtube and the guests that are watching live can chat with us and we can read what they say.

If you are going shopping Black Friday November 29th for anything crafty, you can can also share other great deals. You may be able to join us, we do have some openings left if you want to be live on video. We will be doing this at 3pm central time. Noelle from Arkansas and Kim from Washington state are 2 of the people that will be joining us.

You can follow me on Google+ and I can send you an invitation if you want.

It is going to be so much fun!

Princess Banner

Hi Everyone, I am so sorry I have not been posting as much, I am going to try to get back into it.

I made this Banner for Ava, her mom is having a challenge to make ava something for her 5th birthday, she said it could be a card or anything we want to make. So, I thought I would make her a banner she could hang in her room all year round. 

I used Cricut cartridge, Once Upon A Princess, Rock Princess for the font, Edge to Edge for the flower back ground and Art Philosophy for the base of the banner. Ribbons and Rosettes for the rosettes.

I added lots of glitter glue to the butterfly and the horn and mane on the unicorn and the word Princess. Those 3 images and the Princess girl on the last piece all came from Once Upon A Princess.

I used a pink Boa to string all the pennants on. I used tulle on her dress and used my Cuttlebug with wood grain embossing folder on her hair. I added glitter glue to her crown, dress and wand. I even used brown stickles to put a sparkle in her eye. I used the Swirls Cuttlebug folder on the top layer of each letter. I put the princess and unicorn on action wobbles and popped up the butterfly.

Below I included a video of me making the banner and her opening my banner and a few other things from other crafters as well.

Create, Eat and Tweet

Hi Everyone! I just wanted to invite everyone to a Twitter party Hosted by myself and Noelle Herzig, one of my Youtube followers. We were tweeting last night and came up with this idea.

If you don't have a twitter account, it's easy you can do it from your computer or your phone. Just go to and sign up.  You can follow Noelle here and me here  you can also send us tweets @Noellehzg and @MelodyLane815 if you us the @ sign and then the persons twitter user name they will get the tweet along with anyone else following you. If you just post a tweet then anyone who follows you will see the tweet, if they are watching on twitter. I will be making a video to show more about this.

Create, Eat and Tweet Twitter Party


Friday November 8th, 2013, Noon Central time. 11am eastern time. 2pm pacific time, 6pm England time.

What is it?

A virtual Crop/Lunch/Party. A way to get more Twitter followers and for you to follow more crafty people. We will share pictures as we start a craft project and how it is going as we do it and the finish. I will even take requests on how to finish something. We will also share pictures of what we are having for lunch. We will also be laughing a lot, I think.

How Do I join?

Follow Noelle and I on Twitter and we will ask who is here for Create Eat and Tweet. #cettp When you tweet you are here for it, we will both follow you if we are not already. We will share your twitter name with others to follow you also so we can all tweet and see what each other is doing or eating or just tweeting. We are using #cettp (Create Eat Tweet Twitter Party) if you could put in your posts and click on it in our post all posts with that #cettp will come up and not have too many outside twitter posts in our way.

What if I am not at home and can not create?

You can get on Twitter from any computer or an app on a phone. You can join in with out crafting or eating lunch. It will still be fun to see what others are doing and join in on the conversation. You can join in anytime just let us know you are here if you stop in late. #cettp

What do I get out of it?

A fun filled afternoon, more twitter followers, meet new crafty people, and best of all there will be a giveaway!

What if I missed it?

Don't worry we want to make this a monthly thing and hopefully get some crafting companies to host a few prizes. You can go to twitter and search for #cettp to see what you missed.

Hope to see you all there!!! 

Share this with your crafty friends!
