    Craft Room work and a poor sick kitty.

    I had some help from Logan today! We did a bunch of cleaning dusting and reorganizing! Logan’s Mom sat by and just supervised us… haha. Thank you guys for ALL your help today. I think it ended up pretty darn great!! Added to the BOGO pile, which is ALWAYS a good thing, right?? Still more to do, but I am exhausted! Besides… Gabby was not feeling very good again today… She wanted to snuggle tonight. SOOOO, I made a point of staying put to be sure that she got what she needed! I hope you don’t mind… Have a good night! Hugs and Have a Great Day getting Crafty!!

    Did the brown truck falls in a puddle?? YIKES!!

    Brown truck falls in a Puddle? Joe grabbed the box when it pulled up. The driver saw all the duck tape and shrugged his shoulders and handed it off. My hands were tie up so a Joe started to open it. What did we find?? Yup, all wet. Did the whole brown truck fall in a puddle or just this? The only thing holding this thing together was that duck tape. Making sure to document all of this for my wonderful customer service department. Did you know that Stampin’ Up! has an amazing customer service department? All I did was call, tell them what happened and forward the photos. My…

    April It Started with …

    Here is where I left you yesterday… I am going to be SUPER honest…. Truly, I was stumped! I know it was a crazy day yesterday. I spent most of the day on the computer. However, I learned a bunch of new things!! After all was said and done, I was tired and overwhelmed. Could that have been it?? Apparently NOT! This sign was sitting in front of me for at least a week…. not one idea. Where was my mojo hiding?? I headed back to the craft table and pulled out the Stampin’ Blends. That was certainly working. hummm Wait until you see!! Paula, you have no idea how…

    Two last from the bits and pieces container…

    What is the count?? I will have to go back and look… but let’s start here… The ribbon and retired die cut was in the container. First I layered the Crushed Curry die cut on Daffodil Delight. How did I get it to match up?? I went old school… That is correct, I traced it with a pencil. However not just some fancy pencil. The ones that you actually have to sharpen. haha certain to be careful and get every little curve. Grabbed the scissors and FUSSY CUT! Secondly, this one used the piece that was NOT picked on Coffee and Cards. Along with the little scrap left over from…

    More from the bits and pieces

    Believe it or not… Here is more cards from all those bits and pieces… However, I am getting down to the parts that do not want to go together. I am thinking that that there are only two or three more. We will see tomorrow. Ohhh, yes I did!! I know you can see that shimmer on that Poppy. The shimmer paint spritzer, of course. No NO need for an intervention. I promise!! Similarly, did you notice the “ribbon stack” used for a background?? How?? VersaMark added to any color cardstock, picks up the color! Note: that blue twine… Left over from our science experiments. Died Ribbon Looking for your…

    Happy Treats

    Fun treats with a bonus!! The bonus is the extra pair of gloves. The Treat is candy!! These super cute Snowmen are perfect for the nieces and nephews for just a small treat. ALL of the faces are different because just like a snowflake no snowman is exactly the same!! However, if you are not comfortable doing the mouth by hand, the trio punch has the perfect mouth size ovals. The Chalk marker is just one way to make the eyes, I chose to use the shimmer paint. I owe a huge thank you to my friend Selene, a stampin’ sister, for this SUPER CUTE idea! In addition to her…

    All about the kitties…

    Mooch would say the best part of this last week was that the windows where open. I would agree, a beautiful breeze and sunshine helps the mood for sure! Here is Mooch taking in some rays old man style!! White Sox would agree with Mooch, now. The leaking water fountain was down for “repairs”. However, the parts were ordered and arrived before the weekend. White Sox was grateful. In conclusion, Miss Penelope, over worked, decided that she needed a rest from her #snoopervisor position. I had to laugh because she is still in the box this evening. Paula, you worked her too hard today! I wonder what antics will happen…
