We’ve arrived in Denver CO for the Scrapbook Expo Show on Friday and Saturday. ¬†We had smooth sailing except for the awful internet at the hotel last night. ¬†As we came down I-76 we saw the devastating flooding in Sterling CO. ¬†We stopped for gas and there was only one station open, all restaurants were closed due to the flooding and no bathrooms. ¬†All of Sterling CO was on a no flush ordinance. ¬†Our hearts go out to all those affected by the flooding.


Thanks a Latte

So just a side note….Kevin thinks I’ve gotten a little carried away with the spray paint…this is my latest project…
hoseSo here is my brown hose! ¬†and yes I spray painted it!! ¬†Doesn’t it look so much better than green? ¬†I’m not sure if you can buy brown hoses or not but why buy another hose when you can spray paint! ¬†Right!??

Kevin had the hose going across my patio and I asked him to make it longer and move it around the side of the house and then under the deck. ¬†It was way better than across the deck but I didn’t like the green. ¬†I think it looks much better brown! ¬†It was a bear to paint!! ¬†But I love how it looks.




Perk Up!


perk upPerk Up! ¬†It’s Monday Morning…time to get rolling. ¬†ūüôā

I have a few cards this week that will feature our six new stamps. ¬†Today we have a DD63 which is a 1″ dotted circle stamp and DD64 the Capp Fun Cube.





I’m really loving the fun cubes…so little and cute and useful!

We actually got some projects done on Saturday…Here’s a picture of my sister in law fixing my seat cushions …

chairsYou can see the green wrought iron table and the old cushion covers on the ground. ¬†They were so faded and ugly…but then we put the awesome new covers on and the green didn’t match…so out came the spray paint! ¬†Looks so nice now.


Kevin and I often eat lunch or supper at this little table when it’s nice out! ¬†Well I’d better get to work already having printer problems so I think it’s going to be a rough day!



Espressoly for you!


photo 3Gasp! ¬†It’s Monday already! ¬†We had a very big weekend with Karissa home. ¬†It went much too fast! ¬†Karissa made some cute cards. ¬†I think this was my favorite! ¬†I bought some My Minds Eye paper (by the way one of my favorite paper companies!) and she went to work. ¬†Stamps Used: ¬†G316 KB’s Capp Cup Lg; B273 Espressoly for You; H124 KB’s Capp Border.

So my list of things to do today is pretty long: ¬†finish painting the pool deck (got one coat and then rain!), barcode all the stamps we made, price all the product that came in, barcode the paper order, finish stuffing Make N Takes, Get class paper kits together, get Design & Treasure Paper kits together…don’t think it can all be done in a day! ¬†but I better get going and see how far I get!

Coffee, Friendship, Winter

joyful coffeeIt’s a great morning for coffee! ¬†A little chilly here this morning but not too bad around 28 degrees. ¬†My phone says more snow today but none for now. ¬†I think we got a total of seven inches which isn’t bad but kept Kevin busy shoveling snow most of the day. ¬†I used the AA10 dot again on this card along with a new arrow snowflake stamp for the background. ¬†You’ll discover snow on my brain since all the next few cards feature it! ¬†Hope your warm and dry!
