Missing in Action~~~

Hello friends......I know I have been an absent blogger lately. I apologise. So much is going on in my life.

At the moment we are facing a move this week, so my craft room has been packed up in boxes! Sad! Before that, it was everything we had to do to prepare for the move and buying a house. It will probably be a month before I can post again. I am also super excited because the granbaby is due in two weeks! He keeps trying to come early, but so far so good! Now if I can just get through this move before he comes.................the next time you hear from me here will be a Logan announcement!

I will be back to blogging some day soon................promise!

Monkey Business!~~

Here is my shadow box for Logan, the Granbaby! No, he is not here yet, but I went to San Diego for his shower last weekend, and this is one of the gifts I took him (and his parents!) He has a jungle themed nursery that my son in law and daughter have made SO adorable! It is really something!

The cute little wodden animals came from HL...........aren't they perfect! Logan is due in less than 5 weeks! March 12th...............or so!

The alphabet stamps are old retired SU, and the CS is Old Olive, Summer Sun and white. This was super easy when I started with the pre-painted animals!
Have a happy Monday!

Corner Punches Video~~


Hi there~~after watching this video on youtube , I needed to share it with you! Several of my customers have purchased the corner punches, and they can be a bit tricky, so please watch this video before you call me frustrated! I found it very helpful and worth the three minutes to watch! There are a ton of cool videos on SU punches and other SU related stuff on youtube. Just type in Stampinup and the whatever you are interested in. Such as Stampinup clear stamps assembly, and so on! Spend some tme, you'll be glad you did!

Thoughts and Prayers~~

It is never a happy occasion to make a sympathy card, but alas, sometimes they must be made.

This one is pretty straight forward. Chocolate Chip CS, Very Vanilla CS. Thoughts and Prayers SS. Olive and Marvelous Magenta (ret.) markers. The ribbon is from my LSS. That's about it! It is usually a good idea to have a few of these types of cards on hand. No one really likes to make them when the need arises!

Why not do something special for your family today. When was the last time you got out the good dishes? Get them out tonight and have pizza on them! Why save the best for company, impress the ones who matter most!
