Anything Goes Challenge No. 127 - Optional Twist: Masculine

SURPRISE!
Yes! We've decided to shake things up a bit and we've added an optional twist to challenge 127! It is a JFF (just for fun) challenge and for this challenge only, there will be THREE weeks to link up! We will have reminders for the next two weeks to keep you on your toes! :D Please do not let the optional twist keep you from joining us because we're still an anything goes challenge blog! I've always liked the 'masculine' theme. It takes me out of my comfort zone and isn't that what crafting is all about? Getting us to try different things and stretch our creativity? I know that's what I love about crafting! I hope you are just as excited as I am about this challenge!
Long before discovering I was to be a grandmother, I made plans to go up to New Mexico mountains with a friend where we would be without wi-fi. I was pretty excited about that! Since becoming a grandmother, I've been very torn about going. One day I am packing, the next day I decide I won't go so as you can imagine, I am driving people around me batty! lol
That is why we're having a three week challenge. I planned to be out of touch with reality... haha! For the entire time I am to be up in New Mexico. I teased my friend, who is from NM, and asked him if I needed a passport and would the water be safe to drink. Ha! He said he'd heard that many times before and I was so surprised! I thought I was so clever and original to think of that! haha!
Anyway, I hope you will join us for the next three weeks. My 'Dream Team' will be here for the next two weeks with some more inspiration to get your mojo stirred up enough to get you to wanna join us for some fun! Check out these awesome makes from my 'Dream Team'!

Anything Goes Challenge No. 126

Yay! I was finally able to get this written and posted. I had internet issues last night. I would write the post, click save and the wheel would spin and spin and then crash! It was awful! Especially, because my TV viewing is connected to the internet! I played a bit with my phone and then read all evening! Blah! lol
Thank you so much for being patient and for joining us for a JFF (just for fun) challenge! This marks our 126th challenge! I am just blown away every time I think about that! Check out some of the great inspiration pieces my 'Dream Team' have created to get the mojo flowing! :)

Winner and TOP 3: Challenge No. 124

Welcome, bloggers!
Before we get to the business at hand, I'd like to share some exciting news about my little family! We've grown by one! lol I became a first-time grandmother last Wednesday! I meant to share that yesterday but I was in such a rush I clean forgot! Can you believe it? I'm just so thrilled to be a granny! lol Here's a peek at my new love. This is a picture my daughter took of him when she was alone with him for the first time after all the fuss. I. Love. This. Picture!
Doesn't he look like he's smirking? lol I just laughed out loud for real when I saw it! I'm getting a huge laugh at my daughter's expense. I mean, so far, he's been a very good baby. Not a crier but she's breast feeding and she can't keep up with his appetite! lol Plus, I am quietly amused at how often she changes his outfit throughout the day. I am reminded of her playing with dolls when she was little. I had to ask her if she enjoyed playing dress-up with her new real doll and she said she loved it because he was just so cute in everything! lol
So back to business... we had a wonderful turnout with a whopping 268 entries for our last challenge!
When we have a sponsor, we will use Random.org to pick our winners. Our sponsor last week was The Paper Nest Dolls!

Anything Goes Challenge No. 124

Happy midweek, crafty bloggers! Boy howdy! I almost missed the challenge this week! Ha! I thought it was Monday. That's what happens when you lose a day and jump ahead by an hour! lol I was crashed to my bed all day yesterday with who knows what! I thought it was a stomach flu but then just like that, the fever went away! But while I had the fever, I thought I was gonna die! lol I just love to exaggerate but for reals this time, I'm telling the truth. I felt awful! Gosh! At 55, I hope I'm not pregnant! :p lol So I completely lost my Monday and I can't get on schedule on account of the whole spring forward each spring! I wish they'd stop with that foolishness! But you're not here to listen to my whining! lol
Anyway, this week, we have the super fabulous The Paper Nest Dolls with us!
