Some Christmas Cheer!

Hi everyone. I have been in my craft studio today. Lucinda and I made a few cards and I made 6 gift card holders which I have CASE'd from my upline Jenny Peterson. Yes, I have decided to take the plunge and become a demonstrator. Crazy stuff! I am a hobbyist and just had to take advantage of the 50% off the Starter Kit. Check it out here at StampinUp . It was something I couldn't pass up any longer. I love the products and paper. I still love all the other goodies out there. Don't get me wrong. You will see here and there I mix stuff up. I cant help it. I love everything!

A Little Creative Therapy!

Hi everyone. :) Lu and I took a quick trip to Muskegon today and then decided to do some stamp therapy. This was fun! This is using the top note die, along with multiple different punches from StampinUp. Pretty cool, eh? I used Old Olive, Real Red, Basic Black, Crumb Cake, Pumpkin pie card stocks along with coordinating ink and some miscellaneous stamps (snowflake) and the basic rhinestones jewels. I just loved how these came out. See the small lunch bag in the middle? Perfect to tuck a surprise inside for a unique gift bag. I love it!!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Goodbye My Sweet Angel..

The past 24 hours have been a whirlwind. I feel like I was having this bad dream and it would go away. Jasmine came home from her surgery and I was so excited she was such a trooper and made it thru all of that. After she got comfy on her bed I laid down next to her.. I told her what a trooper she was and how proud I was of her fighting thru the surgery. She was panting hard.. and I knew it had to be hard on her heart.. Jasmine passed away at home around 6pm last night. I'm missing her terribly and I wish I had a magic wand to make it all better and bring her back. I know Jasmine is at Rainbrow Bridge and playing with Baily and Tiffany, too. Goodbye my sweet angel.. I love you.. always. (this is last Chrismtas's picture) BTW, Jasmine would have been 11 years old today.. Happy Birthday Jazzie Girl.

Send Good Vibes To Jasmine...

Hi everyone. I dont have anything crafty to blog at the moment, but I do however have a huge favor to ask of you all. This is Jasmine. She is my baby (one of 2). She is 10 and her 11th birthday is approaching on the 19th. I hope to celebrate her birthday. Jasmine has Cushings Disease. The vet has said that if she doesn't have her adrenal gland removed I may loose her by Christmas. I feel I will do anything possible for my babies. They deserve it. Jasmine is truly an angel. She is so passive and has put up with Ruby the little pistol. That in itself says what a trooper she is. Jasmine goes in for surgery tomorrow at 8am. The surgery will last about 1 hour. I hope to hear great results. I ask you please keep positive thoughts, vibes, prayers, chants.. anything at all.. in hope of Jasmine's speedy recovery. I know it is a risky surgery but she is a trooper and I am trying to think positively. Don't think I'm not worried... if I told you I wasn't, I'd be lying. She is more than "just a dog pet".. she is my family and I love her dearly. I'm stressing.. and just hope all goes well.

November Stamp Club - Way Cool!

Hi Everyone! It is starting to look a lot like Christmas! Really, it is! I had Stamp Club last night and we had a blast. We did 3 cards and a 3D project - super fun! Jenny Peterson , our Stampin Up consultant, gave us each a very special surprise Christmas gift. These necklaces are in the catalog. How cool is this? Jenny stamped the insert and put it inside. You can change them out as ya wish.. its like a locket.  I LOVE IT!!! Thank you so much, Jenny! You are the bestest SU contultant ever!! :-) I really enjoy stamp club - it is cheaper than therapy and its getting together with others who love all this fun paper crafting stuff as much as I do!

This weekend is the first of two weekends at Laurie's house.. the Art & Craft show starting at 10am, each day for this and next weekend. If you are local.. please make a lil trip over and say hello! She is located at 501 East Melendy. Look for the house with the big sun on the porch and follow those cute PINK signs with the angel logo. :) Have a great rest of your week! Take time to be creative!

Hi Everyone! So, finally.. I have all my goodies done. It really only took me a couple of weeks but it seemed much longer than that. It is a labor of love tho and hey.. what can I say.. I hope those who purchase stuff at Laurie's truly enjoy the handmade goodies. Here is what I've made.. mostly stocking stuffers and a few things from last year. Decorated notepads with matching pen, a mini book with lipbalm inside, pendents, Ghirardelli chocolates wrapped up all pretty, mini hand sanitizers wrapped up kinda cute, hot cocoa with peppermint sticks holder, post it note holder with magnet on the back for the fridge, and a cutely decorated tic tac goodie. Hope to see you at Laurie's if you are local. 501 E Melendy, Ludington. 10-6 those four days!
