Thinking of You

so we continue with really cold weather here in Green Bay.  Woke up to 0 degrees.  I must be getting used to it since I  quit wearing a coat to the shop and I just run really fast 🙂

We are hoping to finish up the Indy stamps today…not sure it’s possible since we have a long way to go but I like lofty goals.

Stamps Used:  A190 Tiny Heart, F210 Giga Rectangle Frame, EE27 Whumsy Daisy.

Have a super weekend!

We are working in the shop today.  We are trying to get our stamps all made for the Indianapolis, IN show.   The Indy show is the first weekend of March.  We still have a quite a bit to do but I feel my walls and floors calling me too! 🙂  Never a dull moment around here.  Hope your week is going good.

So we had some excitement at our house this weekend 🙂 You all know how I like DIY projects and I can talk Kevin into just about any project!  He’s been dragging his feet about taking out a wall between the kitchen and dining room.  I finally talked him into it saying…you only have electricity to move and it will be easy.  So we opened up the wall and this is what we found!

Water Pipes!  Ooops!  Needless to say we have a LOT of work to do today!  🙂

Have a great weekend!  Stay warm!  We are off to town to buy a couple of space heaters 🙂

Cold!!!

Coffee

to my friend

good evening!  It has been a very cold day here in WI.  We got up to -11 degrees and I’m not sure it got up much over 3 or  4 degrees.  I’m pretty sure the electric bill is going to be VERY high this month since the cold continues 🙂

Love this cute card for a friend.  I’ve been busy getting new stamps on the website.  I still have a fair bit to go 😦  very time consuming job 🙂 and boring and tedious (I do NOT do boring and tedious well) but I see the end in sight.  Looking forward to at least 15 degrees tomorrow!

Monday Morning

Birthday

presentGood Monday Morning to You all!  I hope you are staying warm.  It seems to be very cold across most of the United States!  Well at least on the East!  We have very cold weather about 9 degrees.  Which is just a little bit better than yesterday.  Good day to stay home and stamp 🙂

Here is another card with our new birthday present stamp. I’m hoping to get all the stamps on the website tonight!  We will see how today goes.  I always have a really long list 🙂

KB here, blogging for Beth since they are driving back to Wisconsin this afternoon. Earlier, the question of how I keep my mat so clean came up and it is simply baby wipes (the mat was fairly new too which helps). I think I bought this little pack for $1 at Target a couple months ago. Photo Feb 12, 4 00 18 PMSpeaking of cleaning, I was getting frustrated with my unmounted stamps and have been trying to figure out a good way to organize them. I have a binder, a bucket, and a rolodex. I’m still not sure which works best but today at Target, in the dollar section near the entrance, I found some containers which might work nice.

These are the containers I found. Photo Feb 12, 2 32 05 PM

This is what my bucket looked like before.

Photo Feb 12, 2 45 05 PM Photo Feb 12, 2 38 11 PMAs you can imagine, it is very difficult to find the one I want. Also, they get stuck together, bent, damaged, etc. It would be easier to leave them scattered all across the desk but that looks messy and the cat enjoys chewing on them.

This is kind of how it looks now.

The larger stamps don’t fit in any of the containers but I think they will work better in the binder anyway. If anyone has a good suggestion or something that works for them, we are all ears (or eyes since we will probably be reading your responses)! Happy Thursday!

Good Morning!  We made it home at 1:00 am!  Whew!  We had a great drive until the last 30 miles where we ran into snow packed roads.  I will turn around and head to Minnesota for the funeral today.

Stamps Used:  F237 KB’s Present Lg and a birthday fun cube.  We hope to have the new stamps and missing stamps on the web by the weekend.  We have lots of orders that need to go out so lots to do!!
