I really, really, really look forward to the end of the school year - all that homework, all those tests, all those school commitments. Of course, they are both taking summer school this year to get ahead, but it's not … [Read more...] about Piece of Cake

February is birthday month around here, between my son's, my mom's, my birthday, and the birthdays of several family friends. There's no end to the partying this month.

So I honestly had planned to get a bunch of birthday cards made this weekend. Guess how many I made? One. Yep, just one. Sometimes, that's just the way it works out. Time, or better said the lack of time, plays a big part in this. And it's crazy because school hasn't started and soccer season hasn't kicked into high gear yet. Where did this weekend go? I managed to get a couple things made this weekend, but my favorite is the … [Read more...] about Best Laid Plans…
Okay, here is the inside scoop on how to be a Stampin Up Demonstrator. Sign up! Go to a Stampin Up Event and see lots of brand new products that you can't wait to have.

This past Saturday, I was at the Just Crop Retreat. I shared one of the Make and Takes that I offered here last Friday. Today I have the second Make and Take. The Party Animal Suite is one of my favorites from the Occasions Catalog. I love the fun, festive colors. The stamps and papers are great for either a boy or a girl, old or young. This card is very similar to one of the samples in the Occasions Catalog. I changed it up slightly to … [Read more...] about Balloon Adventures
That one word says it all. If you’re a parent of a teen or teens, you know exactly what I’m talking about. You constantly vacillate between “I can’t wait for them to move out” and “I can’t believe they are going to move out”. Yesterday, our oldest turned 17, which means the "move out" could be right around the corner for us.We still have another year and half of high school and we’ll see where he ends up for college. I worry … [Read more...] about Teenagers!
