Fun Sunday

At least I hope it’ll be. The girls and I are planning on going to IKEA and a beach nearby it. Then on the way back we’re going to drive through the town where the summer 2012 Olympics will be. I dunno, just curious I guess. So, hopefully the weather will be decent and we can all have a nice shopping + outdoorsy time. Here’s my day two of WPlus9’s Sept. release countdown project: A fun card AND I colored!!!! I used water pencil, Prismacolor, for the coloring and SU’s blending pen. I dunno about you pro colorers but I

Cute as a Bee

It’s a weekend again, YEA!!!!!! We’re not sure what we’ll be doing but for sure I have a little card created using this week’s new sketch from Waltzingmouse aka the Mischief Makers, sketch #12. It’s a bit busy BUT, wouldn’t a little four-yr-old love this little number? Here’s a close-up of the card: I used Tim Holtz embossing folder again. I really LOVE!! Then I tied two seam bindings together into a pretty bow. These seam binding were normal ones that I scrunched up. My camcorder is in the mail somewhere. After I get it I’ll share with you how

Want Consignment Store!

One of my friend told me that I could afford new clothes. Why go to a consignment store she asked. It’s really not about whether I can afford it or not but it’s all about reusing and recycling. Plus, if you go to a nice store a lot of the stuff in there are not only brand names but also almost new (or new, with price tags and all)! I miiiiiiiissss going to one! When I did go I’d spend $50-$100 and leave with what it could have been a few hundred dollars of almost new brand name clothes. LOVED

Happy Happy Wednesday!!

Hi again peeps! I hope it’s a happy Wednesday for you! I can’t believe it’s mid-week already!! We’ve had a very busy and important morning and I can’t wait until tomorrow! It’s  the start of WPlus9’s countdown. Awesome awesome stamps I tell you! If you liked Mehndi (I used it on the above card) you’ll LOVE the new releases!! Not only are they gorgeous, they are also very versatile. Friday I have a few fun announcements. I can’t wait to share them with you!! Ok, that’s it for now. I want to make it sweet and short. Too many things

Sweet Saturday

I’m not sure if I’ll get sick of it after awhile but right now I am loving the UK rain. It’s not violent like in Missouri — I don’t have to ask hubby every other minute if it’s tornadic outside — but just the usual soft sound of rain. It’s lovely and it actually reminds me of the time in Indonesia. I’m not a fan of heat and the rain always bring coolness. Also it’s so dusty where I was from and the rain calms those dust down a bit. On weekends I’d just sit around and read and that

CSS

Hi again! Today I have some news for you! Remember a few months ago I won some Clear and Simple Stamps from one of Embellish Magazine’s challenge? Well, I did get a box of goodies from CSS (wonderful!!) and also a sweet note congratulating me AND inviting me back to the team! After a few emails, getting all the details squared away, I said yes! Back in the days when CSS just opened I was one of their DT. I signed a three months contract and had a great time. Now, here I am again {::SMILE}. Thanks CSS for the
