Hello! Boy, has it been hot here! Already 80 degrees at 8 am. We are not used to this. I’m down to stuffing and stamping make n takes so I brought to the house. I have a little air conditioner in the shop but it struggles to keep up in this weather.

This is a new make n take. I like to have every holiday and so here is a Valentine’s day one.

Good Morning. so the painting job is done…the wood floor goes in today. Yippee. I ended up doing a lot of the painting; I sent my nephew to get food at lunch time and he comes back and says to Kevin and my other nephew “there is something wrong with my truck ” and the boys put their paint brushes down and were out the door! 🤨

So the truck got fixed and we still got the painting done. It was a great day!

Today’s card is a quick and easy graduation card.

good morning! The boys around here are making me so happy!! I’m getting my new floor put down in our bedroom! Austin (my nephew) has decided that any job is better than indexing stamps! Today they are painting and tomorrow the wood floor will go down. Excited!

I will be indexing stamps!

I’m loving these cards! So easy and fun. We will have our usual make n take’s in Shakopee MN but we are also adding a make n take station with an instructor doing these cards. It will be $3 a card.

A salute to all the Dads out there. I’m thankful for a great Dad and a husband that is a great Dad!

Hello! It’s been a couple of crazy days around here. We’ve had lots of orders and one huge order that we have been working on. Got them all out today but have some odd little orders to get out now.

So this was a fun card to do! I did notice that I could see my copic coloring on the back of the owl and kite (see third picture) so on the second card I made – I cut out extra pieces to put behind the colored one. It also added weight which was good.

I’ve been designing word stamps to go behind these little flaps since it’s hard to find stamps that fit 🤪. Hoping to have them by the MN & TX shows.
