I went above and beyond today for a savings. Getting my perks

Apps that are worthy to download.

I just downloaded the app and got my card loaded with ten bucks to start my week out right. My time is getting more limited to the available time I have , especially squeezing in time to eat as well as to get ready in the mourning. So,  a faster way to start my day off in the mourning. I choose to download an app from a friends suggestions and request to take me out for a cup of coffee.

This wonderful afternoon we decided to download after She got me hooked by the incentives. I then proceeded to downloaded the app, which I got a free coffee and with my AARP member I got my free donut  which to qualify for this AARP card you must be 50 or older, you also will have to purchase  a large or XL coffee. to redeem the AARP free donut.  So, this week I got a good deal plus my birthday is around the corner so dunkin donuts will be giving me another free drink, for using the app  as well . There are also other built in discount incentives to help boost the use of the App.  This months is already a savings to me. And I haven't even spent the ten dollars I loaded on my card yet.   I still have the free drink on my card since the first purchase was a friends invite to take me out for coffee.

Blessed be! for looking out for those alternative ways to save and get a good cup of coffee. I am not a Dunkin donut affiliate.. Just love avid lover of  the dunkin donuts and coffee.  The added plus is the coffee is always hot and good. No matter where I travel. Even the my favorite  My Little Pony is coffee bean. He's such a stinker. I hope you make a savings and join in the group of already running on the dunkin. It sounds good to me. Just another way to enjoy a good cup of coffee and a AARP free donut. You must be 50 or older to get the AARP membership, so with this tidbit, getting older has its perks.

Choosing your Target Market

First it good to know a time line of the generation target market. Because each generation has gone through different growth in there age time line. For example Generation GI and older generation perhaps don't use the internet, or have and email. so to target this market, you perhaps would do advertising on a TV, newspaper or radio to reach this targeted market. Because this era of population was introduced to the daily paper tossed on there door steps.

If you have a target market around the generation Z I would suggest targeting your consumer through free apps or radio targeted towards the younger generation.

Then the big one is Baby Boomers. they are the most sought after targeted.. Yet they are producing children growth as well. And most of there target market is in the health field do to their aging factor.  These are just one of the factors to consider in choosing who is your target market.

Because the market changes so much over time. As you can see by the illustration that every generation has been touched by some kind of technology and this technology has grown as well through the time line. So this would be something that you would consider to get involved with, except the growth is massive and change a great rate. Could be costly to invest in. Instead it is a better bet to learn the advertising spectrum of this technology to reach your target market.

Generation changes that effect the market.

Media is define as: the means of communication, as radio and television, newspapers, and magazines, that reach or influence people widely:

Could be effect by the

Some things that are to be considered in the timeline as well is Age, Location, Gender, Income, Education, Occupation, Ethnicity, martial status as well as how many children they have. You can also include Demographic changes and trends.
For example the news at one time talked about the move to Texas by advertising their was many job openings and cheap housing this could make a open market trend because of migration to the state in growth.
Another example of trends is when the movie hit billion dollar growth, like the movie Frozen you could see the market flooded with all kinds of glitter, party goods and activity on Pinterest of all kinds of DIY projects as well as the stores filling their shelves with items towards this trend. These are well learn over time with the big guys that use there timelines, trends, knowing the target market and advertising to generate revenue.  See how you can start making your own target market then track the trends as well as tracking your Demographics.
I also like to add to the examples in diversity of using language could also be added flair to your articles and ads by using a translated version as well to reach the target market as well.
I an inclosing a word doc so you can start tracking your target market today. Word Doc.

Planning my blogging stradagy ~ and ugly chore

Blogging Strategy:

Keeping it all together is a task, with a full time job as well. So the first thing any blogger should do is set up a strategy. Of course, every time you visit your linky parties and post your blog you are dealing with all the comments and social media so your need to set a time limit that works best for you.

Also when gather your information, Keep a List of things you like to accomplish . I also have great categories such as articles to write with photos and article written. amongst other folders.

I like to accomplish, more than I probably can do. Organization comes in handy. This is why I wanted to set some time aside to accomplish this. I can't say I am the best writer. But, a gift I do have is organization. I love A to Z filing systems and enjoy that computers have folders to help in the organizational skills that I so love. I even used the graph a little to give each site it's own personal day. This way I can enjoy all the things I Love.
Well, if you have seen some of my other post. you would know I got a lot of sites going on and if you like to know all the links and more in depth details I got the site finally completed and what a great list of things to do and visit. Finish reading before you skip over to more about each website and me.

Planning my Week:
This is how I planned my week,  what I love about me is I can look at a picture and put it together without reading the instructions. This is why I planned my calendar to do things with some iconic icons to help me schedule daily activity. I also post this as my wallpaper on my desk top to keep me on the right track and be a good productive. Still like to leave myself time to work on the blogging, with some motivators for activity that will keep me exercising, dieting, and planning for weekly chores. You can not have a blog and neglect your personal life. Or, you will be great at one thing and a failure at others. Keep yourself in check. You still have to leave yourself some learning time as well. Computers upgrade faster than I can afford to keep up with. even my afternoon of looking for a cord to get my robo crafter up and running again. We have been in our apartment and time that it takes to get it all in order is past due. Do here's the mess I had to deal with to find my Robo Craft missing cord.

I had to do an ugly chore (untangle wires)
Now to untangle this mess, I got my tools together and plastic baggies and zip ties, and I also had to add a little box for the router set, which comes with four wires and to box units that work together. 
To untangle the best suggestion I can tell you is start with the larger wires. Much easier to get the T.V. cords out first then work until you get to the very last item. I matched up cords with the phones and combined them in the baggies. After a tidiest two hours of getting things organized. Who-hoo I found the Robo Craft cord, and got a very over due mess cleaned up. Hare's how it finally cane out.
Now the Robo Craft is up and running and I was able to get back on track to making my cards. Completing my first love of Card making is back up and running. Let, me tell you I love to organize, 
After hours of studying about glues, paper, sizes , sketches, parties. I had to make some kind of heads or tails out of it. So what better way is to share all the things I am learning.
Now, I have to show you my task  chart. I set it up Weekly and have room to edit. I got at least all my listed cards up. and now back to working on my sketches and a cards pic tutorials. Overboard Created Creations.  Also it gives me time to make them and show your what I have learn as well.  Hope you visit
Now back to planning my blogging strategy:
Now , Comments and Social media is important for a daily task if you are like myself and enjoy the linky parties (directory here) So, I charted a daily project task planner to help guide me through all my daily activities to not only spend time and learn, but also push myself to write. I couldn't write lengthy articles. So, I choose to make articles like these. Picture tutorial and next I have to find time to learn to make better YouTube  videos. I have dabbled a little, not so good yet. If you want to have a laugh. Head over and give me a comment encouragement. With my plate full, I will have to put the effort forward, using this as a article for one of my daily projects. The lovely thing about blogging. you can gather information, and only when the heart is flowing with ideas. Grab the train and go for it's scenic ride. Through your folders of ideas and grab one of your photo and run with it. See where it takes you.
 I reward myself with praise:
Just so you know. Today I feel I got so much accomplished, I Even took a dip in the pool. Crazy hot today. It was well needed after two hours of sorting wires. I did not wake up with that on my mind. But, I am so happy my Robo crafts is back to working again. I got so energized I made a easel card with some of my scented miniature flowers. That have been stored for over a year. If anything, I will give myself a pat for achieving so much today. I been struggling with my leukemia and it accompanies with fatigue and hard to get things done. With this new Calendar planned out for my projects, to help me keep focused. Then placed as wallpaper on my desk top. I am good to go now, to set this in motion for a bit of a reminder to put time limits and upkeep.
Thanks for visiting, and enjoying the wonderful things I learned and want to share with you. That's what's wonderful about comments and social media you can say you where here and your opinion about what you find interest and if you do find it interesting. Pin it. share it , or Love it. So, much you can do.

The results would be one great photo and maybe two. I am no photo expert, yet I do know when I did get the great photo and like to spread the news of how lucky I am to have found the great shot. Still, I am a woman in Christ and have loved acronyms as long as I can remember.


[ ˈakrəˌnim ] an abbreviation formed from the initial letters of other words and pronounced as a word
I enjoy acronyms especially that Christians have used them to spread the word. I looked high and low for some good ones and Pinterested my results on my board.

The Word is alive , share the Acronyms Banners at Butterfly Fans on Facebook.


 I am so glad that God provides his love and word for free. to share and create. For he loves us so
much and he just wants us to share the word. Of his great love. Honestly, the world is changing and to reach the next generation we need to provide fresh wisdom. God does not change, yet we could ad graphic art to enhance the material God has already provided for us.

Animals , Gods greatest gift to mankind

The Love of Animals Great or Small

I just have to say my love for animals is over the top. I haven't yet raised any yet because I have always had lived in small domicile. Yet, someway somehow I find a way to be in the environment. From caring for them in my side jobs or taking trips that let me enjoy there company. so I took some photos to share with you . with some details where and how we got to enjoy the trip. IF you look real close, you can see I got kissed by the snake. His hiss touched my check and that was an exciting day for me. :)

Snorkeling in Puerto Rico

First of all , lets start with animals under the sea. I don't mean fish either. Did you know that this sea urchins are living animals under the sea. which are cover with a protective shell and a mouth on their underside for eating. There are over 950 different species of these creatures that live under the sea. This was a fascinating three dives in one day in Puerto Rico. The highlight of the dive was the third dive or our trip, when we swam in a florescent filled of glow in the dark plankton. So no need for lights, because the water provide a well lighted experience. I suggest a trip to one of the many areas that provide snorkeling or kayaking tours. Two weeks of water fun in Puerto Rico and slight humidity showers daily.

Buggy Rides in Intercourse P.A.

Spend a afternoon in intercourse Pennsylvania were you can take a leisure buggy ride around the Amish lands. Authentic drivers, museums to return with gifts for all of the family, and a wonderful dinning experience on a large dinner table where every one passes the platters filled with fixings to fill your tummy. If you like the good ole days, this is the place to experience the way it use to be and still is for many that live in the area of Lancaster Pennsylvania. I even have to mention the cat that almost became a new member of the house. She was a yellow tabby that was just so loving, If I wasn't already a proud owner of a kitten, I would be owning her. Farms are great places to find a new litter of kittens needing a home.


Feeding Trout At the Lil Le Hi Trout Hatchery

what better way to enjoy the afternoon then to help our towns local hatchery to stock the local streams for the fisherman. Lil Le Hi Trout Hatchery - Allentown, PA You wouldn't believe this is not one of Pennsylvania top attractions but, it gets a lot of buzz around here for the people that know about it. And the reason why we love it. It only cost is the food if you choose to feed the fish. This trip is for the whole family. I have been here at least twice a year, and most of the time I go up the road for a walk around the walking trail that's a round about that you will see bikers , horse back riding , fishing and the occasional bat swooping by. My last visits the birds where fending there territory of new offspring's by swooping past our heads. What a thrilling day that was. If you like the ducks, and geese in the stream your going to be thrilled by this walk, especially in the first part of spring when all the ducks are mating.

There is so much to do, and its just the beginning of the summer festivities. I lost so many great photos that  I noted some of my most favorable animal moments so I have them documented. and I had so much more to share. yet there only memories now

Overboard Creations loves change

It was time for a change and I am happy to say I found my niche. The buh buh buh buh buh which really means in translation. I had a hard day and these things are to vile, I wouldn't even want to do them. I am sure you and myself included, want to be doing other things. I choose to be wanting to be creating awesome fun for my readers. But, that dreary thing called work gets in the way of all my good deeds. Now, if you haven't seen the movie overboard, you got to see the movie. If you haven't seen the movie, I posted it here, so get a look see. Great movie released in 1987.

 So I beg you to think of change more positively. When we say “This is a game changer,” that connotes something good and positive. And yes, it’s okay to “change” your mind.– Allan Karl, WorldRiderwww.allankarl.com
A cruel but beautiful heiress screws over a hired carpenter, who later is the first one to find her when she gets amnesia. Looking for a little revenge he convinces her that she's his wife. But, the best part is yet , they found a happier ending and had a metamorphous of values of what makes a life is truly  happy. She fell in love with four unmanageable boys, that had their own reasons to keep there new found MOM. I never had children myself in real life. Yet, my heart bleeds at the ending of the movie when he finds out she has all these millions and how could he ever giver her anything in life . Except she looks deeply in his eyes and say a little girl. My heart drops, could be the happy ending of any life's fairy tale. building their own family. You fall in love and then have children. Plus, the big added bonus, did you get it. "He understands the value price of a wife, can work off the debt owed that she owes from her shoe closet, from the beginning of the movie. Moms do have valuable worth and he gets it. "

After her length of time working off a list her husband gives her, she has a break down and the kids come home from school. Seeing her buh buh buh buh and Dad comes home and things she broke. the reality is that this work is so hard and she realizes how hard and tasking a day worth of work can be. So, after a long day worth of work. This brings me to the how it relates to the title of the Website. Its just a place to pounce some daily activity down, Blogging materials and why be a blogger. Just to get that buh buh buh off my chest and into the cloud.

My Buh buh buh buh buh buh days

This is also a thought  Why?

     to get my juices flowing and start being a writer. I know that my thoughts would get so ahead of myself and I wanted to jot down some memories before life forgets me and I forget it. I guess that I don't really want to forget you, the reader as well as being forgotten. In the process I like to make life a little memorable before I leave it. So, I guess I am back to make a few more parking words to the readers that don't even know I exist. Don't forget that every one on here has a lot to say, some good, some bad. but yet a voice that needs to be heard. so here I am back in the shadows of words on a black and white background. Jotting down my thoughts again to be heard. thinking about forget me knots and you


Labeling your greeting cards

A to Z

I hope that this helps you along your crafting cards needs, making greeting cards can be for all occasions. But, there is some specific kinds of cards that have so many different sizes or working parts even the needs of products to make them. But, the A to Z cards  help you label your cards. Now, there is a monument card that's not listed, because I ran across this card the other day. Its really a free stand sign, with intro quote or lettering that is specific to an occasion. Yet, I really like to consider this in the listing of cards. If you are a card crafter, you will see the listing are quite an excellent outline of cards, WIP of sketches and cards to complete the collection.

Then after this collection is done, we will work on techniques. I have been collecting cool techniques to use on cards for a couple of years. This I am sure will be a treat as this also is WIP group that will be include at a latter date.  Feel free to follow this board or some other great card boards I have in my collection.
