Brrrrrrrrrr It's Cold

Isn't it cold? Well it is if you live in our "neck of the woods" and your outdoor wood stove gets a hole in it. Last night that is what happened here. Poor Frank, he worked until 2:30 this morning getting it fixed and then got up to go to work at 5:30 am. I'm not sure how that man does it, but I know I wouldn't trade him for a lot of reasons. So it did take a little time to get the house heated back up today, but it's toasty now. Thank you honey for keeping my butt warm.

As far as stamping goes, here is what I've been up to the last couple of days. Last year I made 120 some of these little notebook and pens for Bay Shore Camp's ladies day and of course I put my contact info in them and lo and behold a lady called me needing some for a bridal shower to use as table favors. She wanted them light blue, burgundy and a snowflake theme. I looked through my stash and this is what I came up with. They all sort of varied as far as paper patterns and such, but they met the specifications and she seemed pleased. I ended up making 40 sets of notebooks with a matching pen. Oops! forgot to get the pens in there, but trust me they had matching paper in the barrel of the pen. Maybe I can show you how to do that if you've never done it before. If you'd like to know, post a comment here and I'll be glad to show a little tutorial on it.
That's all for now. Hope you are having a good weekend.

Hi Renee,
Those are really nice. I would like to know how to make both the books and the pens.

Great work, I think not all being just alike but in the same colors and theme would be a plus. Would love to see how you made both the notebooks and pens.

Good to see you back. I hope that you start bogging more often. The notebooks are adorable. Great job!

Love the notebooks. I actually found some, and you have now given me inspiration. Would love to know how to do the pens.
