Hello Everyone -

I just wanted to put the word out so everyone knew how utterly EXCITED I am!! I am now a Stampin' Up demonstrator. For many of you this is not a surprise and others it may be. For those of you that it is not - Don't worry, I will not be asking if you want to do a party or host a get together or workshop. BUT, I will let you know you are able to have workshops or place an order for products whenever you wish. (At this time I will be a (Hobby Demonstrator) where I receive all the benifits of being a demonstrator and a hostess)

For those of you that are not familiar with Stampin' Up or have never had the chance to play with paper, ink, and crafty stuff; I would love the opportunity to show you what a little bit of time can produce. You do not have to be a creative person, there are a ton of ideas out there to help you along the way. Why pay $4.00 for a greeting card? When you can make one from the heart. Homemade greeting cards and gifts mean so much more to the recipient that you can imagine.

So if you have any questions now please let me know. If not I will post more as soon as my kit arrives. It was shipped today!!!!! :) OH and if you wanted to get in on this UNBELIEVEABLE DEAL!!!!! You too can get into the Stampin' Up family at 50% the regular price....... ONLY UNTIL 11:59PM TONIGHT!!!!!!!

That is why I did not pass this one up. There are so many things about this that I could not pass up. If you have questions send me a message I could tell you more. If you don't that's fine too. I just wanted to make sure that everyone was aware.

Talk with you soon.

Blessings -

Don't forget to stop by

Still busy, busy, busy. But I love it , love it, love it. Tomorrow 11/14 is the Craft Fair at the Elks on Holland-Sylvania. Please make sure to stop by between 10-4.


More Craft Fair Items

Here are some more items for the this weekends craft fair. Bookmarks. I just had to make some more bookmarks. This ones take a little longer but they are just too cute not to share. I will have to start working on something else and only have a few bookmarks to choose from this time around since they are so time consuming. I already have Ohio State, Michigan, teacher, and a couple other types made. These were just the ones that I had made this morning. Have a great day, I will try and post more later.


Newest Craft Fair Items / A little Hello

Hello everyone. So I have been a tad bit busy  lately. To the point that I have totally forgotten what day it is already. This is my first full week of not going into the office and I already don't know what day it is. I am not really sure how that is going to end up, but so far I am really enjoying myself. 

This is a VERY picture heavy post . I just thought I would share some of the things that I have been busy with. I have been so busy that I have gone with a roll and a half of ATG tape in a couple of hours. I don't think I have ever done that. CRAZY........

A dear friend of mind just had back surgery and I thought I would send a card. He is in a LOT of pain right now so it would be a good time to use the wonderful gift from ProvoCraft. I just LOVE this special download that Gypsy owners received. (even though I had difficulties with my virus software first, but got it all worked out) Smiley Cards has some of the CUTEST things.

This is an altered journal. I was very proud of myself on this one. This was the first time I did a full size altered journal and if I say so myself, I think it turned out very pretty. It didn't take me as long as I thought it would. That's a first. Normally it takes me forever to complete an idea. I think that now I am home (MAYBE) ideas will flow a little easier. That would be nice.

This is a toilet paper mini, I just love doing these. Some times it takes a little bit to come up with what I want to do, but these 2 seemed to come pretty easy also. This wintertime one is not 100% complete but I thought I would share what I had done. The very front blue snowflake page will have "make a " on it, so the complete book will say "make a wish"    



 Here is another toilet paper roll mini. This one is for fall. It would be great for photos of raking leaves or picking apples/pumpkins, anything done during the fall time. I would have to say Face is one of my favorite times of year - the colors, the smells, the feeling.

 Here are some of the Skinny Notebooks I have started working on. I still have a whole bunch I would like to complete before this weekend. I always feel like I don't have enough stuff. I would like to have a lot of Christmas and wintertime items for the next 2 craft shows but I WILL NOT stress myself out. I am doing this for fun, because I enjoy it and I love the fact that I can do this with what is in my head.

 I made the design on my Gypsy and instead of cutting out I attached my Cricut Markers and drew the design as my background cardstock. I love how this turned out.
 I then cut out some extra music notes and popped them up with pop dots to give it a little POP.
 This skinny notebook is all heat embossed. I stamped the front and back with a snowflake and boarder design then heat embossed it. I LOVE how it turned out. I then attached a snowflake button to the front, a piece of ric rac to the back and wrapped the ric rac around the button as a closure.
 I then stamped the bottom of each page with the same boarder stamp.
 I just stamped the entire piece of cardstock with white craft ink and made that the background. I just love how the white ink pops with the red.

Here are the mini altered journals. I got these at the Dollar Store. They come in packs of 3/$1.00.
 I was able to get these covered, but I have not completed them.

That's what I have for now. I have been busy and I LOVE IT. I have to get back to my craft desk there are still a ton of things that I would like to get done before this weekend and if I am at the computer, I am not working with craft paper. Hope I get to talk with everyone more often now and hope everyone is doing well. I will however be a little under the weather next week, I am having surgery a week from today.

Oh, I almost forgot to mention. This past Sunday was the first time I had attended an actual Stampin Up workshop. And I must say, I had a WONDERFUL time. I now am going to be addicted to going to them. Its a good thing she has them every month.

More to come soon, well as soon as I can pull myself away from my craft desk.

Blessings to everyone.
