Whew Another Year Done

Christmas Cards

box of choc 2Well we are done with another year of show!  Whew!  It was a great year.  Thank You to all our customers!

Today’s project comes from Debbie.  It is the coolest little box with chocolate.  I’m going to use this project for our Design & Treasure in 2015.  It’s adorable.  THANK YOU Debbie!  This project uses a 1.25″ Scallop circle punch which is one of my favorites.

I’m suppose to be doing paper work today but I left the computer up and the house and didn’t want to walk through 5 inches of snow to go get it.  So instead I’m sorting Make N Take paper.  We kit all the make n takes ahead of time but sometimes they don’t all get used.  I have had a HUGE pile to go through and for some reason it works to go through it today.  Hope your day is going good 🙂


Madison One of a Kind

Coffee, Friendship, Hello



Well, I have two load of laundry in baskets to put away (well, technically three if you count the sheets that are washed and dried and stuffed in a basket !) and a sink full of dirty dishes!  But the truck is loaded and packed and ready for Madison! whew!  I thought I would blog tonight and set for publication in the morning since we plan to leave by 6 am!  Yep, leave not get up 🙂

I just had to blog these cups that Karissa did because I think they are so cute.  I love the creative way that she colored the cups and the stamps.  Way Cute!  Hope to see you all in Madison.  You can tell Karissa is using her brother scan n cut by the way the butterflies and bird have been cut out.  Don’t forget the special Black Friday Special from brother.

Brother Black Friday!

Friendship, Snowman

We are so grateful for everything in life!  I was groaning about all the stamps we were making and whining a little 😦 and Kevin said what if no one liked your stamps and you had no stamps to make?  What a perspective!  So happy for all my work! 🙂

Good Morning!  I hope your weekend was good 🙂  It is so nice to be home and having supper with my sister and her family!  We also had lunch with friends yesterday and so it has been nice to be home.

Christmas Cards


Yeah!  We have finally made it home!  We arrived home to snow flurries but no snow sticking on the ground.  There are pockets of snow on the ground on our property but nothing on the driveway.  We arrived in Suamico around 6 pm, made a quick grocery stop and then Panda House for some food.  I’m ready for a good’s night sleep!

We are happy the truck is headed home although we had a great time in Carson, CA!  We saw a lot of old friends and met some new ones.

We made it to Kingman, AZ last night and tonight we are in Amarillo, TX.  The weather has turned cold and the wind was incredible the last hour of travel.  We are glad to be safe and snug in the hotel and look forward to a good night of sleep.

Made this oval card with the brother machine.  It came out so cute…Stamps Used:  FF40 KB’s Christmas Owl, E261 Christmas Snow Fun, BB22 Snowflake Fun Cube
