We are in Mount Clemens, MI getting ready for the Heirloom Rubber Stamp Show. For those of you who heard it’s in a bad area …it really is not.  It is not high class like Novi, MI but it’s not the slums. They have a bit of disarray but it’s not too bad. We spent the night here and we were not scared 😜

I really need to get my graduation cards sent but I guess I’m just extending their celebration 😊 

Stamps Used: H117 Swiss Dot Giga Circle; D187 Graduation Cap; C234 Con Grad ulations; H125 Graduation Cap Border; E256 KB’s Bookish Owl;

Today’s card is our new graduation make n take. It is very similar to a card we have already posted.

Our new printer arrived and does not work. So after investing thousands of dollars in the new POS system and hundreds of hours uploading inventory – nothing works!  So the  next time you see me my hair may be all tore out😁. We leave today for Texas and we are not really sure how we are going to check out down there but we do have the old system back up and working. Sigh. 

Stamps Used: B231 Grad hat mini; D312 Bright Future; B134 Grad Hat; D187 Grad Hat; G337 Lightbulb lg; E279 Congrats Bright Future

I do believe the lightbulbs are a few of my favorite stamps!  There is much to do with them!

We are getting ready for set up here in West Springfield, MA.  We do Design & Treasure tonight so it will be a long day but excited to see our friends here in MA!

Whew!

Whew!  We made it to West Springfield, MA today.  Nice to be here.  We were busy making stamps today.  Had to bring a few boxes to finish up since we didn’t get done before we left. 😦

Love our new graduation stamps!  Stamps Used:  F242 Trio Graduates, D313 Celebrate your day!, D314 A day worth Celebrating.

On a side note…I should have wore my glasses while coloring my graduates but tried to do without.  Finally had to go and get them.  Pretty blurry without.  Thankful for spectacles !

Crunch Time!

Good Morning.  It is really crunch time for us….we have much to do and no time left.  Well, we have today but it will not be any where near enough time to get ready for the West Springfield, MA show but we are probably close enough.  We worked until midnight last night and up early this morning finishing up details and loading the truck and trailer.  We discovered a water leak in the back of the camper shell so spent time fixing that. ugh.  always something .

Graduation was this weekend here in WI and so I made this money holder for a friend of ours.  If you took my class a couple of years ago this was one of the projects.  I go back to it often when I’m giving a gift of $.

 

Graduation Continues…

Good Morning!  We have woken up to rain this morning…but not like Dallas has!  I’ve been thinking about Andretta and Eden who live in Garland and  Dallas TX.  You guys have had rain!  Maybe since you can’t go to work you can get some stamping in??  Hopefully no water in your house!!

Stamps Used:  CC27 Dots & Lines, DD69 Grad Fun Cube, B134 KB’s Grad Cap Sm, F115 Accomplishment, A198 KB’s Grad Cap Mini

There just does not seem to be enough time in the day to get all the things accomplished.  The stamp making seems to keep getting in the way.  For the next few days that will be our project 🙂

Graduation Time!

Good Morning!  We have another Star Graduation card this morning.  I want to make a birthday card with the star cards…we will see how the day goes 🙂

We have a big day today.  My brother is in the area (well not too close but a 45 minute drive so not too bad!) and we’ve been invited down to have supper with him.  The area where he is has GOOD SHOPPING!  I love good shopping so I can’t go down there without a little shopping 🙂  Working frantically so I can do a bit of shopping before supper 🙂

Stamps Used:  DD69 Grad Fun Cube, DD60 Lines & Dots Circles, HH29 Star Border

Have a great day!

Well, Good Evening.  It is past bedtime and I remembered I hadn’t blogged yet so I uploaded this lovely card only to see a shadow in it :(.  So I apologized for that!

We made stamps today and I was in charge of supper.  We always have bible study on Wednesday too so pretty soon the day was gone!  I’m not sure how it happened but life seems to be speeding up.

Stamps Used:  E256 KB’s Bookish Owl, C234 ConGRADulations, And both theLarge and Small Graduation Hat.

We are working on some new graduations stamps and I’m excited about them 🙂
