good evening! I accomplished a lot today. We finished packing the toy hauler- rearranging everything! It was a big job. I got my plants all planted and we painted more peg board for the booth. We found a desk for the toy hauler, bought more plants ( didn’t get enough the first time!) and stuffed make n takes. The bed is going to feel good tonight.

Good Morning. Today’s card is my only accomplishment from my stamping afternoon. I guess I will have to find some time to stamp this week. 🤪

Good Morning! We have a lot going on here with the new toy hauler and modifying the booth to fit.

Spent yesterday afternoon in the studio and only got one card done 😬🙄🤨 it was not a productive afternoon. I was trying to do a new fold and have lots of crazy scored things that didn’t work.

Today’s card is from a few days ago. It is a favorite of mine. I’m planning to teach a class next year called Funky Folds and this card is going to be one of them.

good evening! Another day is done! the days seem to go by faster and faster.

Just a cute story for today… my sixteen year old nephew comes and plays video games with Kevin and he came upstairs tonight and was watching me stamps cards. He wanted to know if I was working or having fun??! I said both and he thought it would be easier to just go buy a card. So I told him my making cards was like his playing video games! He wasn’t convinced!!

I’m having so much fun making funky fold cards. I started this one early this afternoon and it took me a quite a while to get the measurements right but I was having fun!!

Good Morning! I keep telling myself to smile! We have been slowly getting things back together when we had a pipe burst in our bathroom. groan! Again, almost all fixed and back together. Glad we were home when it happened or it could have been a disaster.

Our new toy hauler will be ready for us next week and we can get that packed again. That’s like moving only on a smaller scale. 😊

We added about 24 more dies so that’s exciting. Now to get caught up😝

the crazy z folds continue!! We’ve have been very busy with our broken trailer. We have come to a resolution with the manufacture and are satisfied. We need to empty the entire trailer which is a huge job! I need less stuff!!

I’ve been using our dies that match stamps. I don’t know why I resisted so long! They really are too much fun and easy to use.
