Where Oh Where Have I Been?

Not that I get too many visitors on here yet... I have been so busy & just realized I have not put up any new pictures on my computer to share... Boy I wanted to be so much better at this blogging. I visit so many blogs where the ladies are sooooo faithful to updating & I cannot even post once a week. Boy am I spilling my guts here... I promise to be better at this in 2009 even if I have to create posts ahead of time I hope to post at least once a week. When I hit 2500 hits I hope to give away blog candy & I have a lot of stuff to give away too! Anyway I will have pictures on the first or second so if you do visit please come back I have a ton to share. Thanks!

Fall & Christmas Cards

Well I have the day off today! I plan to catch up & organize my crafts for Christmas, it's one of my favorite times of the year. Here's what I've been up to since my last post...

These are some fall cards using DCMV background papers & one of my favorite scarecrow stamps, isn't he the cutest?...


Some super cute Christmas cards, with single views to follow:

This one was made using the DCMV box of cards, oval Nestabilities, my favorite poinsettia flowers & the Marth Stewart branch punches, one of my favorite cards for this year so far :)

This one was made using the Debbie Macromber background papers & my favorite Stampendous fluffles Christmas stamp, I took this idea from a talented person on Splitcoaststampers, thanks!

Here's one version of this year's gift card holder, I get a bunch of orders for my holders down at work, this is made with some background paper I got at Hobby Lobby last year.

Well thanks for looking, I may be back later today with another post depending on what I can get done, I received my Copic markers this week & I'm just dying to use them :) TFL - have a great day!

Busy, Busy, Busy

Hi There!
Yes, that's what I've been up to this past weekend, here's a bunch of things to share: First up:

This a pizza box for Halloween.


Another pizza box.

Halloween take-out boxes, these were made from some clearance wedding boxes from Walmart, just stuck some chipboard stickers on them that too I received from Walmart as well, also added some Halloween ribbon as well.


Here's a card I made with the Gina K Daisy set & DCMV paper as well - I so love to color :)

My cool sketch book, where I try to keep all sketches of cards & such I see while blurfing...
Next, I told you I was busy, busy...

My card organizer.


Some Christmas, yes Christmas list pads I love making... I've made these for the past couple years & I'm super happy with the progress I've made to make them look better & better... Thanks for stopping by I hope you've enjoyed what I've shared & hope you'll stop by again soon! I'm really trying to update this blog more & more.

Tour of My Stamp Haven...

Hello Everyone!

I actually have a bit of alone time today & I'm off work ready for a four day weekend! Sad that it's the last weekend of summer but look forward to fall & all the holidays as well. I've finally gotten around to taking pictures of my stamp haven & posting them, I spend as much time in there as I possibly can & really love the fact that my family understands my passion/addiction & let's me have my haven :)

Here is the entrance & what you see when you walk in the door:

Then there's the area I do most of my work at:

To the right my workspace, my stamp pads, clip it up with my clear stamps:

To the left above the work area:

Next to that is my cabinet that hold most of my stamps & paper & other miscellaneous supplies:

This is the other side of the room, I can just swing myself over there in my chair, here's where I keep my ever growing collection of Nestabilities (I just love 'em):

Here's my well loved Cuttlebug on my desk that hold my printers & such:

Just above my collection of stuffed bears (my favorite of all time):

The other side more bears & my work:

My collection of SU sets & such I'm trying to sell, I just don't have the room with everything else in my haven to keep all these sets, I've really moved to my Angel Company style stamps & the clear ones as well have become a love of mine - E-mail me if your interested or check out my post on Splitcoaststampers.

This too is the side of the room where my closet full of stuff is as well I'll save that & my paper storage for another time :) Hope you've enjoyed my tour & thanks for stopping by!

Happy Sunday!

Good morning!

Just trying to stay up to date with my blog :) hopefully I'll continue to at least add every week - for some reason it seems harder to keep up than I thought it would be. Anyway, here's a cute little pad of paper I covered sometime ago.

Great Gift

Good Morning hope you're having a nice weekend!

Here's a nice gift I made for one of my adjusters that took on a new position at my "day job" :) She was always so helpful that I felt I needed to show my gratitude. Enjoy!

Share, Share, Share - Many Things to Share!

As promised, I'm back & boy do I have a ton to share. I'll begin with:

These were my entries to the Penny Black swap/contest I was in a few weeks back, I didn't win but just loved the swaps I got back as well. I had so much fun creating these too!

Next up is:

These were two cards I made for a Bear Swap, one is a 3x3 & the other is June's stamp of the month from TAC - haven't received my swap back yet so I cannot say if it was as great as the last but all of the ladies on Splitcoast are so talented so I cannot imagine getting back anything but the best :) I had fun making these too!

Next up:

For the end of this post, I'd like to share my Shoe Box swap card from a stamping event held by some fellow Angel stampers since we couldn't make it to TAC's Seminar in Wichita, Kansas this year. Boy did we have fun that day! The second is my full card swap & last is my paper pin technique share I did for the ladies they all made really nice butterflies too! This is a technique I learned in my SU days shared by Kelly Purkey, I just love making those pins!

Well that's probably it for today, unless I can get back here later. I'm hoping to share some pictures of my wonderful stamp room soon too! If you have any questions, please e-mail me or leave me a comment & I'll get back to you asap! Thanks for stopping by & happy Saturday to you!

Well my son turned 21 yesterday & my daughter turns 14 tomorrow - again where does the time go? Well here's a recent picture of them both. I hope to share some more cards later! Thanks for stopping by!
