Lots of Holidays

Halloween came and went... and I have some cute projects to share...

I even was quite productive yesterday with starting Christmas cards. I made 17 cards!!

Now I just have to get my camera to work - or figure out how to use hubby's computer scanner to post lots of fun pictures.

Stay tuned... in the next couple of days - the pictures will be posted.

The last of this week's Stamping MOJO

I've combined these last 2 groups of cards... 2 Sympathy cards (the hardest for me to make)... and 2 Christmas. (Yes, I'm trying to get a jump start on the Holiday Cards, so I won't fall behind)

More Stamping MOJO

Here are some FALL cards I've made this week:

My MOJO results

Ok... here are some of the cards I've made the last 2 weeks:

This "batch" are the all occasion cards.


I found some stamping MOJO...
Wait til you see all the cards I've made recently...

I thought about it and realized how I've been able to be more productive...
No it's not because I am working less, I am in fact working outside the home even more.
It is because I CLEANED MY STAMP AREA...
Moved furniture, re-organized, and more
(ok, well, I'm still working on it)

So here is my newly organized area

A Special Farm Thanks

My Dad took my kids to a friend's house to see their farm. We learned after, how wrong we were (and we had a good chuckle). They did have a barn and 2 horses... even a few ducks. Other than it being about 10 acres, it looked like it was far from being a farm. (LOL)
So my Dad asked me to make a special Thank You card to send to his friend.
Here is the card...
I hope see sees the humor too
(cause I'm SURE her hubby does NOT look like the farmer on the card)

Beary Special Cards

Hello Friends and Stampers,

I was able to get some stamping done recently... nothing like deadlines as motivation.
These are for a swap I joined on a yahoo group. This is a stamp set that will be available in Stampin' Up!'s Holiday Mini Catalog, beginning on Tuesday, September 1st.
I don't actually own the set... a wonderful girlfriend, Nora, stamped some images for me,
so that I could join the swap.
The Bermuda Blue and Melon Mango (Blue and Pink) - 2 of the 2009-10 In Colors is the one for the swap.
The other two (done in Red Riding Hood, Kiwi Kiss, and Chocolate Chip) are extras... one for the hostess and one for Nora for stamping the images for me.

New Swiss Pixie Stamps

I saw these cute girls at
and then did a Make-n-Take using one of them at the Rubber Stamp Expo in Novi earlier this month.

The mermaid is not really a Swiss Pixie, but isn't she just as cute?
Her name is Emma... so of course my Emmalee wanted her too

OOPS.. I have no idea why the one is upside down
and to be honest I'm not sure how to fix it... LOL

That one is to help you get your exercise today... practice your Yoga (Downward Dog) or stand on your head

I'm so inspired when I go to other people's blogs...
I see their creations, and it makes me want to stamp.
If only I had more hours in the day...
then I could stamp more AND keep up with my Blog

If you're stopping by, don't look back too far, it's pretty "few and far between"
I want to be better... SO...

Here are some cards I have made recently

Less than a month until the Stampin' Up! 2009-2010 catalog begins.

Ok - I'm behind on updating my blog.
I'm sorry... I am disappointed when life gets too busy to keep up
but love life, so can only stay disappointed for a short while.

Here is a pic of ONE the swap cards I made for the

HOORAY... I've actually had time to STAMP!!
My Sale-a-bration pre-order arrived and I came up with these cards.
(The 3rd one - with the Hardware Frame - was for a Swap I joined)
The other 2 were just for FUN!!

All 3 use the Sale-a-Bration set called "Botanical Blooms"
and the Sale-a-Bration Designer Series Paper "Delicate Dots"

More creating needs to be done... Until then...

Ok, I'm a bit embarrassed at how long it's been since I've posted.
Darn LIFE always gets in the way of my creative plans and ideas. LOL

Well... The NEW Stampin' Up! catalog starts tomorrow. I'm so sad mine won't be here until mid-end of this week, so you bet I'll be looking at it on-line (
or borrowing one from a fellow demo :-) I always prefer to look at it in paper version, but I'll have to do whatever I can.

I have a wish list started, and need to start my swap cards for a stamping weekend I'll be attending at the end of March. Oh, but I guess I'd better think about Valentines first. I don't think I'll be stamping Valentines for all my kid's classmates this year. I just have no time :-( but I am HOPING to at least stamp a few special treats for my children's teachers. I think I can do 3 treats! LOL

I'd also like to play with some new stamps I have arriving this week...
Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration sets (pre-ordered) and some non SU stamps...
SALE-A-BRATION STARTS FEBRUARY 1st - before ya know it... free sets for all*

As soon as I get some stamping done, I'll be sure to post. It may be a couple weeks, but before Valentines Day, I hope to have something to show you.

Until then, stay warm (especially if you're from Michigan and surrounding states)
