Stock Pile

Published May 8, 2017 by emmaperez1961

Hello everybody!!!

So I am so excited! I have been doing some serious couponing. And I mean serious, cause it is time consuming and it takes brainstorming on your part. And I will show you some CRT’s that I get from CVS. Where I been doing most of my deals. It awesome to know that you can get some much for so little. Of course you learn along the way, your hit or misses and screwups!!! But hay, no worries cause the deals always come around again. Thank God!! I haven’t tried walgreen or target, Yet! I’m the kind of person who likes to work on one project (and all it’s worth) before I move on to the next. I like to know that I know all about that subject or project. Multitasking is good but only when you know what you know. If that makes any sense! Otherwise things can become extremely confusing or go horribly wrong.  Then you have to deal with consequences, overspending or your time investment ill spent. And I know we’re all aware that time is something we can’t afford to waste. lol

At first I just wanted to try my hand at it one more time. I have tried years ago and it just didn’t work for me. Maybe  now because we have all the youtube videos that we didn’t have back then, and it has made it easier. So I’m so glad for that. I figured if they can, I can. Actually that is my motto right now on everything. If you can do it , so can I!! I just have to put work, time and alot of effort into it. So its working so far. I have much more to learn but I’m getting there.

And of course I’m working on other projects. If you haven’t seen my boards, just go to my site and scroll down to view them. I’m definitely working on a time system for them. Which isn’t easy because uhm, I’m not a robot!! lol My life entails way much more!

It was fun sitting here and connecting with everyone today. I hope that everyone is not giving up on their projects. Remember, you get back whatever time and effort you put into it. And I know its not easy for alot of us who have family, little ones or fulltime jobs. But 30 mins here and there or more does add up. Have a great day everyone and you’ll hear from me soon!! Keep on crafting!!!


Easter is almost here!!!

Good evening. I know its a little late, but I have been trying to catch up on so many things today. Aside from working, I have gotten myself into watching so many videos on couponing. Trying to figure out how all these women who do coupon, get so much for very little out of pocket or for free. Well now I know! I myself have done the same and I have to say, it is a WOW factor! Now I know why they put so much hard work into it. To get so much for so little or free is amazing.

I decided to put more work into it myself. Although it is time consuming, It is well worth it. It also makes you aware of how you can do other deals with different brands at other stores. And stock piling on those items as well. If you want to catch some of the deals I did in the last few weeks, just like me on facebook or leave a message on my page so I can add you as a friend. This way I’ll know that your from my WP family.

Baking has come into play as well now that Easter is here. Trying my hand at cakepops and making cutout cookies of flowers and bunnies. Have to start on my royal icing tomorrow. I just finished working on some Easter baskets for my grandchildren today.  They came out nice.

I finally figured out how to upload a photo from my Iphone to here. Geeze, that took a while. I couldn’t get for a long time and I new their had to be a way. I just wasn’t seeing it. But I finally got it. I’ll let you know what I did, just in case your going through the same thing with you phone.

I also started watching vids on how to edit. Just like everything else, I know its going to me awhile to learn but I’ll eventually get there. Alright, so I’m going to hit the shower then go to bed. I have three busy days ahead of me. Don’t forget to check out my videos on youtube. Its your life by the grace of God and Emalife. I try to be as inspirational and informative as I can. Don’t want to leave anyone out of the loop. I know if I can learn something, so can you. so keep crafting your craft. Have an enjoyable Easter Holiday!!

Just dropping a line or two!!

Hi everyone.

Believe or not but I have gotten myself into stickers. Ya, I said sticker! It started with my journals that I began like about a year or so ago. And I wanted to bring them alittle life. None of these water wash pages. Although their cute. Its just not for me. What I have been using are the planner stickers. I like them. They have so many cute items to use. I am trying to find some with coffee mugs and social media stickers. Hope I can find some soon to add to my collection.

I recently made two daily planner boards to keep track of all my crafts and fitness routine. They came out pretty good. Something I know I can work with. The best part of the boards is that I used clear tape so that I can use dry erase markers to change the month and days. It worked perfectly. Colored co-ordinated all my projects, so all will have a chance to be done.

Yes its going to be a busy year for me. I actually should have started this in January. But just had the idea a couple of weeks ago. Only because I had tried this before about 5 yrs ago but took everything down because we had to move. So I thought I’d give it another go. And even more so now, cause I have more projects underneath my belt. And with the stickers, it’ll to make all the more fun!

So that’s where I am now. And of course getting ready for Easter. I hope you have a chance to catch me on my YouTube channels. I have two.  ‘Emalife’ and ‘Its your Life: By the Grace of God’. So come over and check me out. Would love to see you there!

Hello everyone. I hope this day or night finds everyone well. I have been really putting to much on my plate lately and trying to keep up with everything has been no easy task. From crafting to making videos, working and taking care of the family, that trying to fit everything into one day just doesn’t happen.

So I’m trying to figure out a way by now getting into making or creating a daily planner that can help and keep me accountable. So far I haven’t been to bad. I did finish a series on my you tube channel called (It’s Your Life: By the Grace of God)  and plan to keep up with it. Right now, I’m just taking a small break to create new content based on the same subject.

I also have my other channel which is called (EmaLife). That one is based on my ramblings of my daily living. Which I enjoy doing as well. I guess the hard part for both is just setting up the cameras. I did invest in a web cam but the sound wouldn’t  reach as far as I wanted but I still use it nevertheless. I did my series (Proverbs 31 woman) with that one. Which worked out great.

I use my Bloggie for my (EmaLife) channel for that one does pick up sound from a good distance. I still don’t know how to edit but I will be working on that this year among other things!

I still work at the bakery. Been there for 3yrs already. Boy, how time flies! Still married and all my four son live with me except my daughter who has given me three beautiful grandchildren. Bless her heart! So ya, its a busy life! Still into baking and I just bought a serger. I really need to get into my sewing this year as well.

Workingout and staying healthy is also a big factor in my life. I need all the stamina and energy to keep up with my family. lol  You can catch my supplements and photos on instagram as well. Under Emma Perez or emmperezzz. I’m the one with Marilyn Monroe as an icon. And ya, I have snapchat and periscope too. I know, trying to drive into all these social platforms is crazy!!

If you missed what I’ve been doing just go to my site and scroll. You’ll see everything I’ve been up to till now. I’m still here, still around! And of course I like my blog.  I really enjoy writing even moreso with pen and paper, which is the reason that I’m working with my journals. Yap I have three or four. My daily living, faith, events and study journals.

Better call it a night. Sleep well everybody and I’ll catch up soon.

Welcome to my B&B

Published April 19, 2016 by emmaperez1961

The reason I’m starting this blog, is to take you to a place where you might not have gone otherwise. Unless your taking a vacation. And then even that can be stressful. And you need a vacation from your vacation!  Believe me, I’ve been there.

This is something you can do for yourself. Not once a year or every 5yrs but any given weekend or day. Something that can release stress from the mundane! Doing something special for yourself will actually make you feel accomplished.

Three years ago I decided to do some Ballet. Not that I’ll ever be a ballerina! Mostly for exercise. To stretch my legs, for I always had gnawing discomfort. Doing plie’s and stretching my legs over my head actually helped. I even began to listen to ballet music. And let me tell you, it took me to a higher plain. A higher experience. Close to the heaven-lies if you will. Higher than royalty! Its not what you have, Its what you feel!

And that’s what I feel when I make my own breakfast in bed. A high experience. Sure it would feel greater if I was served. Who knows, maybe someday! But in the meantime, take that time to enjoy a breakfast in bed once and awhile. That little bit of relaxation will change your views on things, your body and mind will thank you and you deserve it!wp-1459258336194.jpgwp-1459536181290.jpg By the way. I made that pineapple doily! Ya, it took me awhile. lol


Red Balloons!!

Published March 30, 2016 by emmaperez1961

In the mist of adding my B&B to my blog, I had gone to the thrift store to see if I can find some suitable dishes for my tray. And with no luck at all I left the store disappointed. As I proceeded out the door, I remembered that their was a party city nearby. And I had a thought that maybe they might carry some kind of glass wear. So I went in to check it out. And of course to my dismay, their wasn’t any.

But did find a Wilton baking isle, which I wasn’t expecting to see at all and told the cashier that I would definitely come back. Purchased a few tips and sprinkles.

While I was waiting in line to pay for my products, this lady yells that she was giving away balloons for free. I guess she didn’t like the color or something and that they we’re already purchased. She said ‘If  you want some just let the cashier know and she’ll give them to you.’ I was like, that’s cool! And thanked her.

I didn’t realized the colors until I sat waiting for the bus. Now, their were black ones but I asked for the gold and red ones only. It was just so ironic that the balloons matched the the book that I was about to study. ‘Fighting back With Joy’. I felt so blessed that my Lord wanted me to have these balloons.

Now the reaction of the people was a big deal cause it made me realize something else. In-which I will share with you later in the days to come. I felt so giddy the rest of the ride home that I couldn’t wait to take a picture of both the balloons and book.

Now their is always a reason why our Lord does what He does. Its behind the reason of the balloons that I’m so in awe about. Otherwise, I would have never seen or thought about it.

Come back for my next post. I’ll be doing a vlog on the books.wp-1458941317557.jpg
