another day is almost done! Time is flying here in Yuma. We are headed to Mess in the morning to teach our birthday bonanza class.

Today’s card would be a great card for someone you can’t be with at Christmas!

Good Evening. Another beautiful day here in Yuma. We’ve had some busy days with doctors appointments, invoicing orders for my sister, trying to get caught up on paper work ! gracious it’s never ending. we often joke we should call our business “endless work” 😛

Good Morning! ☀️ I have to confess that I love gatefold cards. I really like using the die Sarah and I designed for the tops. The cards open so seamless compared to cutting with two dies. I think it's because the new die is perfectly centered.

My biggest dilemma is I like patterned paper for the sides. I went to a local scrapbook store and bought $50 worth of patterned paper and wasn't really happy with any of it 😡

The other day I decided that as a stamper, ( right; we are stampers!!) I should just stamp my sides and I am so much happier with them. Just the right amount of pattern.

I learned something else while doing this card…glue can smear your ink. yep, don't look too close or you can see where my glue got away from me and smeared the ink 🙄

well, I'm off to make stamps 😜

family 2Another day in the shop!  We just have too much to do to take the day off!  We are going to try and finish up by noon.  We’ll see how that goes.  I’m not complaining!  It is much better to have too much work than not enough.  So we will just be thankful for today 🙂

KB’s Manger stamp has been one of my favorites and it continues to be.  Such a simple card with lots of meaning.   I like that the embossing folder says family and then the words on the inside of the card refer to family.  Stamps Used:  C181 KB’s Manger Sm, C182 Seasons Greetings, D274 Adore him, E205 KB’s Manger Lg, F199 Family @ Christmas.

Have an awesome weekend!  I will paint this weekend so any day painting is awesome!

Oh and by the way my Colorado friends…your stamp has been sent to the engravers and we should have it next week!  Along with AZ and CA for the upcoming shows.


Be Merry!

xmas owl

Good Morning!  So nice to sleep in my own bed last night 🙂  We drove till about midnight Sunday night, got up really early to get all my orders placed.  Left the hotel at 5 am Central time/ 6 am Eastern time and got home around 7 pm Central time/ 8 pm Eastern time.

We sold a record number of brother machines this weekend!  I’m pretty sure it was because of my awesome help in the make n take booth…Keith and Joyce have helped us for several years now at the PA shows.  Awesome help!  Of course I managed to sell a machine to them too! 🙂

A sweet little christmas owl from our new stamps!  Love his ears!  Stamps Used:  FF40 KB’s Christmas Owl, DD63 dots & circle, DD76 Naughty & Nice Fun Cube.

LOTS to do today so better get moving!

Thank goodness for Friday!

Oh, I am SO happy that it is Friday!  We have been working 10-12 hours a day trying to get the stamps all made so that we can have a little time to do some things around the house.  Instead of painting yesterday…we made stamps till 11 pm!  Almost done but I said that this morning and here it is 4 pm and I’m still working 🙂

We hope to take the weekend off and just enjoy being and home!  AND doing some painting! Have a great weekend.
