After arriving at my MIL’s house, one night we were talking about how I had become a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator. She was curious about stamping and card making but didn’t know what to do, so I helped her design and put together her first card. It is a simple card but looks nice in real life.

Sorry for the long lag in writing! This whole cross-country move thing has been much more complicated than I thought! 🙂 My whole house has been packed up and in a truck for the last week, and my DH, myself, and our 3 cats have been staying at my MIL’s house until it was time for us to move to our new home in Portland. I managed to set aside a small bag worth of stamping supplies thinking I was going to have lots of time to use them but boy was I wrong. It wasn’t until last night that … Read More
My new order is in and boy am I excited. Sadly, it showed up just before the packers and movers showed up at my house so I only really had time to mount my stamps and gawk at all the goodies before most of it went away. However, I was smart and kept aside a bag full of stamping items so I will be able to play with some of my new supplies while waiting for the movers to deliver my craft room to Portland. Coming soon – projects with the new filigree brads, awesome rub-ons, some new stamps including … Read More
After a very busy evening (yay! sold our couch!) I forced myself to take some time for stamping. I’ve wanted to every night and since I promised earlier, I figured I had to make it happen. 🙂 Tonight I tried to go for something that was a bit on the simpler side and at the same time thought I would try again for a get well card. This came together easily and used a minimal amount of supplies.

Hi all, Just wanted to post a quick note to say sorry for the delay in posts. Sorting our house in anticipation of our move has taken longer than I thought and has taken up my last few nights. However, check back this evening…I promise to post new card ideas!
I haven’t been able to do much stamping this weekend as my hubby and I have been sorting most of our house in preparation for our move to Portland. While going through my office, I realized just how many retired stamp sets I have and decided that I ought to clear out some of the old to make room for the new stamps that are on their way to my house now. I have 11 sets for sale, some of which are brand new and unmounted! Email me if you are interested in any of them. I will happily mount the unmounted sets for you … Read More
Last weekend my grandma had surgery on her foot and has been a lot less mobile and in a lot more pain than she expected. I wanted to start sending her cards to try to cheer her up while she recovered and had a great idea for a card using the new Sock Monkey stamp set. Unfortunately, as I started stamping and cutting paper, the card just wasn’t shaping up how I hoped. But after two nights of tweaking the card, it is now a birthday card and I’m happy with the results. Now for attempt two of a get … Read More
The Fall/Winter Idea Book and Catalog is here! It is full of some fantasic new products. I filled out my wishlist earlier this week and was amazed at how long it was! Of course there are some great new stamp sets but it was the accessories section that really caught my eye. I’m loving the new designer paper (the prints in the color family designer series papers are so much better than in the last catalog!), plus there are tons of new ribbons in many sizes and colors up to 1 1/4″ thick! I have to say though, I think … Read More
