Happy New Year!!

I wanted to wish you all a very Happy, Healthy, Prosperous 2009...filled with time for family and of course Stampin!!

I also wanted to share with you a new item that the craft room now has. Of course I will be sharing it with all of the people that come to classes or workshops. My daughter Amanda and Son-In-Law Josh know how much I love popcorn so they decided I needed to share that love with my fellow stampers for Christmas I received this shiny Red Popcorn Maker....hmmmm can you smell that popcorn - well you could if we had smellavision (is that a word?) Isn't this just too cool!!!

Tomorrow, I'm planning on posting some pictures of the cards/projects we will be making in January....stay tuned and Happy New Year!!

Hello again,
I have been playing with my "preview" stamp sets from the new Stampin' Up! Catalog coming out January 19th. I wanted to do some tiles for a friend that is just getting things ready for their new bar so I thought this would be a great gift for them using the set called "Game Night"

This is a 6x6 tile that I used SU craft Ink and baked for 10 minutes then sprayed (several times) with an acrylic sealer. Want to make some of these for yourself or friends....sign up for my Tile class on Friday January 23rd.

Here are some coaster sized tiles I also made using the same stamp set "Game Night"...This would also be a great set to use for manly cards as somehow they don't always appreciate the flowers..

Happy Holidays

Here's hoping that you received all you wanted for Christmas and that you were able to spend time with family and friends.

We had the best time with our Grandson Jude...he really enjoyed the season and it was fun to watch him play in the large amount of Snow that fell right before Christmas. His uncle Brandon had a good time playing with him on the 4-wheeler until they got stuck in all of the snow...but that is what makes memories...Jude and I watching from the warm house while Uncle Brandon digs out the 4 wheeler...

I did get a chance to play with my new "sneak peek" stampsets from the New catalog coming out January 9th...I just love this "Buzzin By" stampset and it is sure to become one of my favorites...I cased (copy and share everything) this card from a very talented Stampin' Up! demonstrator Rhonda Griffin. You can check out her blog at Here are a couple of samples that I just couldn't resist in casing...
