I think I’ve finally convinced Karissa that the triple flag cards are pretty cool!  I love how she took a two line stamp and made it work in the triple flag.  And like how she wrapped the twine in the top flag.

Hope your week is going good!

Hello!  We arrived home from Minnesota last night around midnight. We had a great time in Bloomington.  You ladies made a lot of make n takes.  That makes me so happy!

We got all of the special orders out today so you can expect yours in a couple of days if you had a special order.  We still have have few internet orders we need to get out tomorrow, plus some store orders but we have a really good start on them. So I’m again happy!

I’ve gotten the house all vacuum, the laundry started (not any where near done but we got rain this afternoon and I LOVE to put clothes on the line so I stopped doing it.)  I’ve got the spare bedrooms all dusted, vacuumed, and picked up.  I plan to clean the bathrooms as soon as I’m done here 🙂 Love getting things done.

Today’s card is a simple card with our J35 Live, Love,  & Laugh and EE52 the paper airplane.

Look what the brother machine cut out for Karissa!




Many of you may have heard about me talking about my malfunction on my demo brother machine.  My outline distance button quit working.  It’s a very important button.  I called brother and they told me to bring my machine to a sewing store in Green Bay and they would fix it!  Wow!  I was a little impressed.  Kevin not so much.  He said “I’ll be impressed if it really gets fixed!”  So I’ll keep you posted 🙂  The bathrooms are calling 🙂

Wacky Wednesday



ok, here is the last of the four make n takes that I’ve added!

We have almost gotten all the cabinets painted! it was a much bigger job than I thought but they look fantastic and Mom is so happy!  I will post a picture when completely done. Today we need to look for hardware and then the big job of putting the kitchen back together.  And Dad will be glad when all is back in order and his silverware is not on a chair and the coffee is not in the living room 🙂

Good Tuesday Morning!  We had a fabulous day of painting yesterday.  Although if I would have known that my Mother had 45 cupboard/drawers/door… I might not have been so eager to paint them.  I have two coats of primer on all the bases and 28 of the fronts.  So we have a really good start.  So it’s another day of painting for me! 🙂

Here is another of our new Make n Takes.

Monday Morning

Friendship, Hello, smile, Uncategorized



Good Morning.  We find ourselves in Elk River, MN…my childhood home!  We are getting ready to paint my  Mom and Dad’s Kitchen Cabinets.  Exciting!  A day of painting.  We will stay until Thursday and then head down in to Minneapolis for the Bloomington, MN show.

Today’s card is one of our brand new Make n Takes.  We added four new ones this week so that is exciting too!

Enjoy your Day!

It’s Friday!


Celebrate your day1celebrating your day2

I’m really excited it’s Friday!  Super Excited to see all my family this weekend. I’m also happy that I got four more make n takes designed.  It will be fun to have some new ones for the Minneapolis show.  So I need to get out to the shop and get them all put together. 🙂

We are leaving for Minnesota later today.  Kevin and our son Travis will head over with the trailer early so they can get set up in the light.  My sister Sonya and I will head over when she is done with work around 6 pm.

So here’s a question…does anybody else’s stamping desk look like mine or is it just me?  The messier the more creative??


have a great weekend!

Beautiful Card, Poor Picture :(



so sorry about the quality of this picture!  This card was brought to me at the West Springfield, MA show by the customer who made the card.  Conditions at the show were not good for picture taking! BUT the card was beautiful!  I carefully put her name in my phone so I would know who to give credit to but of course I deleted her name. why?  because I couldn’t figure out why I had this random name in my phone. Oops! I do need to do better note taking but I always think I’m going to remember.
