Thursday Evening

July 2, 2015


  
  
We’ve accomplished a lot today !  We have all the convention “pulled” that means all the stamps we are going to make have had their ticket pulled. The ticket tells us all the information we need to make the stamp.  We have vulcanized 1/2 of them. We still have a long way to go but I see lots of progress.

Kevin and Bruce (a friend of ours) have continued to build in the pantry/mudroom. I have to say it is coming out better than I could have imagined!! I have been admiring those barn doors on Pintrest and I’m getting one in the pantry/mudroom. so excited. I will post pictures when done 🙂

I made today’s card for a friend of mine that needs a little love sent her way!  Stamps Used: D300 Sending Love; EE56 KB’s Tall Daisy Lg; F196 Wishing Love.

The Long Weekend is about here!

On the road again!

April 23, 2015

Just a quick note today since we are back on the road. This layout is similar to yesterday’s but I’m loving the colors and simplicity. The words give this card the option for almost any occasion. It could be a birthday, a special day or just a thinking of you card. Hope everyone is having a great Thursday!

Unmounted Stamp Organization

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!

 

Here we go Again…

We are home was again!  The truck drove into the driveway at 2:02 this am.  I’m up and at it already but Kevin is sleeping since he drove all the way home.  He’s a night owl and I’m a morning person so it works out good.

Everything starts all over again with Novi, MI show this weekend.  For those interested information is at http://www.heirloompro.com.

A Very Happy Birthday to our daughter Karissa today!  We couldn’t ask for a better daughter!

We had a busy weekend getting some things done.  Paint just makes things look better so…I painted some things 🙂  We have some ugly stairs going up to the studio so we painted them on Friday!  They look so much better!  We can’t finish the wall until the air conditioner/heater gets put in.

take time to smell the coffee

March 10, 2014

I love these little coffee cups stamped on patterned papers. To add another layer, stamp it on white paper and brown paper for the top and sleeve of the cup and cut out each section. I like to use scrap to try to utilize each piece. Stamps used: E263 Take time to smell the coffee!, G316 KB’s Cappuccino Cup Lg, A190 Tiny Solid Heart
