Stuffed Stocking

Isn't this little gift card holder adorable? I found the idea and pattern on SCS and knew I just had to try one out. The edge of the stocking cuff was made with a different medium that I'll share later this week. Hope you enjoyed this. Have a great Sunday.

A Hostess Gift

Here is a hostess gift I made for my friend Joni's party last week. Lots of o0h's and aah's from everyone. I used the cute set available in the Holiday Mini Cold and Cuddly. This set is just too cute and has so many possibilities. I found some cork board in my stash as I was unpacking boxes last week and thought it would be great to make a cute little bulletin board. What do you think? Would you like one? Book a Stampin'Up! party with me and I'll make you one too! Want to order this set? You better hurry while it's available only until January 4.
Hope you all had a great after Turkey Day day!

Home is Built of Love and Dreams

Good evening. I just had to do a quick post tonight to show you what I put up tonight. Isn't it beautiful? I was going through stuff in my stamp room trying to put stuff away and I came across this and knew instantly that it had to go up. After our fire and finally getting back into our house I find this saying so appropriate. It was so easy to put up. I love Stampin'Up's decor elements. I have the Thought and Prayers Tree coming and will be putting that in our living room. Can't wait to show you that. If you'd like more info on our decor elements please contact me or visit my website Until next time................happy stamping!

As Promised

I know I told you on Sunday that I'd get back to posting this week and here it is Wednesday and I haven't. I hope you all understand. Getting our lives back to some semi normal is taking some time, but we are so thankful to finally be back into our home. I just work on a little more each day and I know I'll get it done eventually.

Now onto the stamping.
It's a beautiful November day here in Mid-Michigan so we're not thinking of snow yet, but it will come soon enough. This card was fun to make although it was made in a couple different attempts. Seems I find it hard to finish something without getting distracted these days. I used the adorable set The More the Merrier. This set is a level 3 hostess set and you could earn this set for FREE with a qualifying Stampin'Up! workshop. So why not call me today and we'll get yours booked? Even better call me to book and this cute little card can be the Make and Take at your party. Wouldn't that be fun? And I bet your friends would have a great time making it as well. So what are you waiting for?
Stampin' Hugs!

Back Home-----Finally!!!!!

Well we are finally back home. It's been a long 6 1/2 months, but we spent our first night on Tuesday, amongst boxes and all. The only thing I cared about was having my bed to sleep in. We have been through quite a bit as those of you who follow my blog know, but I'm happy to say we are better people because of it and we love the Lord even more. He has been good in spite of all that has happened. The fire, Frank's cancer, pickup truck motor going up, having to put our beloved 14 yr. old cat to sleep and the daily struggles of taking care of insurance issues and making decisions on top of not being able to live in our home. It's been a struggle as I said, but I'm so thankful for all the Lord has brought us through and we couldn't have gotten through it without Him. God is good, all the time. We also appreciate all our family and friends for their support, prayers and helping hands. We are blessed much more than we deserve.
I will have a few stamping things to show you this week, but for now I'll just show you a very small sampling of what our house has been looking like the last week.
We have a total of 297 boxes delivered back to us and that doesn't include furniture, electronics, appliances or clothing. We does one get so much stuff. I swear my girls have saved everything since the minute they were born. They're my little hoarders. I will share pics of the house too as it gets a little more presentable.
I'm now off to do a Stampin'Up! workshop for the Pigeon Women's Club. Wish me luck. I could really use a boost to my business right now.
Thanks again for all your support and prayers. Many blessings and hugs to you all.
