Good Evening! It’s way past my bedtime but we had a busy day and I’m just getting to blogging- I’m trying to be better at it.

This box card was one of the first I cut and scored- and it’s a little wonky. You have to be very precise when scoring paper for box cards. The more you do the better you get at it!

Good Morning! Well apparently we are still not connected between Facebook and WordPress! Groan! I think I will go back to bed.

We do have an error on our 2019 schedule that Kevin will fix today. Allentown is listed under March but he had April as the date. It really is in March. Thanks to those who let us know! Sometimes after you stare at things so long it all looks right.

Another quick box card. These just take one 8 1/2 x 11 paper for the base. Pattern Paper makes things quick. I generally use PhotoPlay paper.

Now it’s back to loading inventory in the new POS. I’d rather be stamping!

Good Evening! Lots going on around our place! We needed to get a new POS system which is a point of sale cash/computer program. Groan! Lots of data entry which I am not a fan of.

I finally realized my blog had gotten disconnected from facebook so hopefully that is fixed.

I cracked a tooth! Most annoying 😩 so it’s either a $2500 root canal and cap or pull it. I’m leaning towards pulling it. This is the 5th tooth I’ve cracked! I need to stop clenching my jaw. So was at the dentist on Monday, today, and need to make an appointment for whatever it is I choose. I don’t have time for this 😜🤪😝

But I LOVE making box cards so fun and easy. My class this year includes a box card. Information for my class is on our 2019 schedule. Here is the link to our schedule: 2019 Schedule

Good Morning! I continue to make stamps, fill orders, and try to get my class and new make n takes together. We will be changing how we do make n takes next year.

We will be doing our 27 cards buffet only at Heirloom Production shows. The rest of the shows we will be doing a 2-3 card guided make n take format.

So much to do in so little time! 😩

Here is another variation of our wiper gift card holder that we will be doing in Design and Treasure on Thursday night of Heirloom Production shows. I hope to have our schedule up soon!!

Good Morning! I have been pretty busy designing my class and the D&T projects. Sometimes it’s hard to pull it all together- the right paper, the right stamps & cutting dies. You also have to have the project completable. This project is my 1/2 hour project. This is done at the Heirloom Production shows. I’m working on getting our schedule on the web too! ahh! so much to do!
