Hello! I am alive! Some crazy days. On our trip home from Stampaway we broke a spring on our new toy hauler. We couldn’t believe it so stranded in Indy for a day. Made it home and Kevin ordered a new spring.
We came home to piles of internet orders and we had a few special orders from Stampaway. I finally got all that done and we are starting on stamps for the next convention.
Today’s card is for Becky O’Donnel’s class in Hamburg, NY which is the next show. It was fun to make.
Good Evening! We have been quite occupied! We ended up not going on vacation last week–plan to go this weekend. We had too many orders to leave and our toy hauler arrived back home!! After 8 weeks at the manufacturing plant it should be as good as new! 🙄 So we have spent the last 3 days getting everything back in it.
Today’s card is another card from Sarah at The Paper Cut.
It’s still spooky around here! Cleaning out the garage the last few afternoons. My sister came for supper last night and thought we had just made a big mess. You need to make a mess to get it all sorted. We had boxes in there from when we sold the retail store which was in 2009. That was 6 years ago! Gracious!
Can’t wait till its done but don’t think we will get it all done before we have to leave. Making stamps for orders today and then to the dump. Since we are going to the dump which is in Green Bay we are taking some storm windows in that need the glass replaced. So there goes the afternoon 😉.
For those waiting for the new brother machine. it is available again. The price is $299.00 not $179.00 like I was told! We have made the decision not to sell it. They offer us no incentives and there is no monetary profit so it just doesn’t make sense to sell it. We will continue to use it in our make n takes because I love the machine.
I have supper duty tonight so making BBQ ribs, baked potatoes, snickers salad and buns. It already smells good in the house.
Good Morning! Kevin has us up at the crack of dawn…4:30 am I think that might even be hours before the crack of dawn! Since he couldn’t sleep he decided the truck should be moving 🙂 We made it to Clinton, OK last night and hope to make Flagstaff, AZ today.
Halloween is coming so for the next few days that is what our cards will reflect! Stamps Used: G297 Halloween Hauntings, DD65 Halloween Fun Cube, DD44 KB’s Ghosts, E189 KB’s Mummy.
Good Morning! We are back on our way home after a terrific show in York, PA! I learned an awesome tip for the brother machine! My mats got well used (we demo’d the machine a lot!) and they were not very sticky and a gal told me to use painter’s tape. So I tried it and it worked great. JUST to caution you all…she got tape stuck up in her machine and had to take something apart to get it out so that’s a little scary! so be careful!
Here is a sample card with some of our new halloween stamps. The faces are so adorable. The ghosts, pumpkins, and both faces come mirror reverse.
Stamps Used: EE50 KB’s Dancing Ghost, FF39 KB’s Trio Pumpkins, DD65 Halloween Fun Cube, DD60 Circles & Dots, E186 Be careful beware, BB59 KB’s Pumpkin Face Sm, CC67 KB’s Pumpkin Face Lg.
it’s another halloween card today. It’s been a complicated day beginning with no milk for breakfast, no cream for the coffee, and no groceries in the house! But I do have my laundry all caught up, groceries in the house, suitcases put away, all the orders have gone out, the bills have all been paid, and I have a good start on getting stamps done for the next show which is in two weeks. Not bad for a Tuesday 🙂
I have been working on a quilt for my niece and I have three rows left on it so it’s in my plans to have that done before I leave for the Mesa, AZ show. I got it all cut out and basted together this evening so now I just need to get sewing…so I think I’ll do that! Have a good evening.
Here is a special post for those who were at the Rockford show today and didn’t have a camera to capture some of the card samples in the booth. Thank you to all who came! If you missed today there is still tomorrow. The show is open from 10am to 3pm at the Clock Tower.
