Hello! Boy, has it been hot here! Already 80 degrees at 8 am. We are not used to this. I’m down to stuffing and stamping make n takes so I brought to the house. I have a little air conditioner in the shop but it struggles to keep up in this weather.

This is a new make n take. I like to have every holiday and so here is a Valentine’s day one.

good evening! Another day is done! the days seem to go by faster and faster.

Just a cute story for today… my sixteen year old nephew comes and plays video games with Kevin and he came upstairs tonight and was watching me stamps cards. He wanted to know if I was working or having fun??! I said both and he thought it would be easier to just go buy a card. So I told him my making cards was like his playing video games! He wasn’t convinced!!

I’m having so much fun making funky fold cards. I started this one early this afternoon and it took me a quite a while to get the measurements right but I was having fun!!

Good Morning! I keep telling myself to smile! We have been slowly getting things back together when we had a pipe burst in our bathroom. groan! Again, almost all fixed and back together. Glad we were home when it happened or it could have been a disaster.

Our new toy hauler will be ready for us next week and we can get that packed again. That’s like moving only on a smaller scale. 😊

We added about 24 more dies so that’s exciting. Now to get caught up😝
