Thank you, Sandi!

My friend Sandi has been such a great friend in so many ways, not the least of which is opening up her home and hosting not only a Stampin’ Up workshop, but a class as well. I saw some super cute little packets that some other demonstrators had made up including little packs of ribbon. … Continue reading »

Wow Flowers!

I’m trying to do more of the challenges on Splitcoast Stampers, because truthfully, I don’t think I even would have become a Stampin’ Up demonstrator if it wasn’t for the talented women, fabulous ideas, and wonderful resources available at Splitcoast Stampers. And I love this part of my life! So this week’s color challenge over … Continue reading »

Get Well Soon

I think masculine cards are the hardest to make. Not funny ones, not lovey ones, but real masculine cards. So when my co-librarian asked me to make a get well card for his grandfather, I knew it was going to be rough. There is one set, though, that is always a good one to turn … Continue reading »

Big Shot to the Rescue

I had another Big Shot moment the other day. My most favorite, most comfortable, most worn pair of jeans got a hole in the knee. And it is just too cold to be walking around with a hole in the knee! So once again it was Iron-on patches and the Big Shot to the rescue! … Continue reading »

Super Cute Box o’ Cards!

I made the super cute box of 3″ x 3″ cards from the tutorial on SplitCoast Stampers. It was the doorprize at the Valentine’s Day workshop in Ashby at the end of January. Well, the women who were there loved it so much they requested a class to make their own! We’ll be getting together … Continue reading »

Fall Colors?

I was surpised at the colors in Kristina Werner’s Color Inspiration today. They felt very fall-ish. Which was not at all what I needed on this cold and snowy evening. I wanted Bright! But, as they say in kindergarten, “You get what you get and you don’t get upset.” Today’s colors are: I made flowers … Continue reading »
