Our family has always had this thing for penguins. When my son was two, I bought him a small stuffed penguin that he took everywhere. It was his lovey. He became so attached to it, that we'd have conversations about what would happen if it was lost somewhere, or how to distract him when it had a much-needed bath. I did what any normal mother would do... I bought four more exactly alike so we'd have spare loveys to last a … [Read more...] about Happy New Year!
As we approach the end of the year, I want to share a couple Holiday projects that I didn’t get a chance to share sooner. Most of these products are still available from the Holiday Catalog, but the Holiday Catalog does end January 2nd. If there is anything else you can’t live without, this is your last chance to get it. First up is Christmas card using that beautiful Toile pattern paper. I made a bunch of these cards for a customer so I needed … [Read more...] about Final Holiday Round Up
Yes, I get it. Christmas was a few days ago, but I still have more Holiday stuff that's just too good not to share with you. You can always use these ideas for next year. In one of the past Stampin Up Demonstrator Magazines, they showed a project that was stamping on pre-cut wood slices. I just loved the idea so I kept the article handy knowing I would need it closer to the Holidays. These ornaments turned out to be just the cutest! I bought … [Read more...] about Too Good Not To Share
And you bought all gift cards instead of presents. So now you're wondering how to make them look fabulous instead of giving them away in a cheesy plain envelope. I've got just the solution. Grab a stack of our Gold Mini Pizza boxes and get wrapping. These gold boxes are so pretty and they really don't need a lot of decoration. I like to wrap mine with a band of pattern paper. Then all of my decorations get attached to the pattern paper and not … [Read more...] about You waited til the last minute…
This past Wednesday was our annual Crumpette Christmas party. More than 20 years ago, we all worked at the same office and became really good friends. Then one by one, each of us left the Company and moved on to other jobs. We missed seeing each other on a regular basis so we started a monthly dinner night. We've been having dinner (almost) every month for close to 20 years now. About nine years ago, I started making ornaments for the … [Read more...] about Annual Ornament
When another month comes to a close, that’s the time I work on my customer thank you cards for the previous month. This way, I know exactly how many to make for the previous month. It might seem like it would be easier to make them as I go, but then I’m make 1 or 2 at a time and getting the same supplies out over and over. Sending them out at the beginning of the next month definitely works better for me. And without further ado… here is the … [Read more...] about November Customer Thank You’s
This time of year is super busy for me, getting lots of crafts and cards made, plus getting all the Christmas decor out and decorating a tree. This little elf must get back to work so I'm keeping this post short today. This past Monday I shared a card using some of the new Most Wonderful Time Medley products. I love that this Medley has lots of different choices of products in it but I know that can be a challenge when you're not totally sure … [Read more...] about O Christmas Tree
