Dull Glossy Paper, Friendship, Just a Note

More daisies! I’m a little obsessed with them right now. I had a white frame I was going to put around but then wrecked it trying to add color. Oops. Might try again on another card though!

Cutting Dies w/ matching stamp, Dull Glossy Paper, flowers, Get Well Soon

Just a Note


  
  
Good Evening! We continue to make stamps and work on the house.  Same old stuff!

We are hoping to take the weekend off of stamp making and work on the projects around the house.  We purchased a toilet and sink to replace the old ones. I want to get all the crown molding up in the dining room & powder bath. I would like to spray paint an old fan silver. It is currently gold. if it looks good then it won’t need to be replaced. And I would like to get the mudroom painted! It’s a pretty long list but I think we can do it 🙂

The fireworks are booming tonight!  Have a great 4th of July.

I’m liking the long daisy. It is a new stamp. I like its versatility.  Stamps Used in today’s card:  C283 need a hug?; Cc73 Double Grass (I’m loving this new stamp too!); EE56 KB’s Long Daisy, lg; C95 Flowers to cheer

Thankful for our freedom!

Stamps used: E265 Death Leaves a Heartache, HH27 KB’s Whumsy Daisy Lg

KB here, blogging for Beth since they are driving back to Wisconsin this afternoon. Earlier, the question of how I keep my mat so clean came up and it is simply baby wipes (the mat was fairly new too which helps). I think I bought this little pack for $1 at Target a couple months ago. Photo Feb 12, 4 00 18 PMSpeaking of cleaning, I was getting frustrated with my unmounted stamps and have been trying to figure out a good way to organize them. I have a binder, a bucket, and a rolodex. I’m still not sure which works best but today at Target, in the dollar section near the entrance, I found some containers which might work nice.

These are the containers I found. Photo Feb 12, 2 32 05 PM

This is what my bucket looked like before.

Photo Feb 12, 2 45 05 PM Photo Feb 12, 2 38 11 PMAs you can imagine, it is very difficult to find the one I want. Also, they get stuck together, bent, damaged, etc. It would be easier to leave them scattered all across the desk but that looks messy and the cat enjoys chewing on them.

This is kind of how it looks now.

The larger stamps don’t fit in any of the containers but I think they will work better in the binder anyway. If anyone has a good suggestion or something that works for them, we are all ears (or eyes since we will probably be reading your responses)! Happy Thursday!

 

All Starts Over Again!

Friendship, Hello, Just a Note, smile, Thinking of You

Well, we are back from Minneapolis where we had a  GREAT time and the fun just continues…We leave Thursday for Collinsville, IL so just three days to make stamps.  We are going to be busy little beavers…now if we could get some our nephews to mow grass…that would help 🙂  Here is a great card from Karissa
