New Products

I had a little thank you gift to make and of course I wanted to use some of my new stuff I got this week so I reached for the new Autumn Meadows DSP and the corduroy chocolate chip buttons and also some of the Bermuda Bay ribbon. I know it's hard to see, but it's around the edge of this little canvas that I picked up at the M store. Used the Sizzix Daisies #2 die for the flower and stamped the word friends in black Stazon. All products of course are Stampin'Up!
Hope you're having a good weekend.
Stamped Blessings,

EEK You're Sweet!

I've been trying to get something posted all week, but things with the house have kept me pretty busy. Much progress is being made and it won't be long now. Maybe another month or so and I am so ready to be home. If you want to see some of the pictures you can view my photos on Facebook. Just search for my name Renee Romain Ondrajka and you can see my photos even if we aren't friends on Facebook.

Ok, so getting to the project at hand. Here you go................ Sorry the colors aren't very good. It really is much brighter in person.

I just love these new little Sweet Treat Cups (116802 $2.95 for 12) from Stampini'Up! I think the possibilities are endless. You can fill these cups with almost anything. Well anything small enough to fit. *grin* And to top it all off there is an awesome stamp set called Sweet Centers (116521 $29.95) that they work perfectly with. That's what I've used here. Colors used Dusty Durango, Rich Razzleberry and Certainly Celery.
And so the recipient wouldn't have to rip it apart to get at the candy this is how I put mine together. Hope you enjoyed it. I will be back tomorrow with another cute Sweet Treat Cup idea.

Postie Note Tutorial

I promised to be back today with this mini tutorial and here I am. I know a lot of you may think this is so remedial, but since I feel like I'm trying to get my business back on track, why not start out at the beginning with the basics. I made postie note covers when I first started over 9 yrs. ago. Of course they've come a long way. We now can find cool posties and we have so many more punches and embellishments than we had back then. So I'm calling this an updated postie note idea. *wink* I really hope you like it. So try it and go back to the basics.
I did my score lines at these measurements because I used about 1/4 of the pad of notes. It was a rather think pad to begin with. You could just adjust these to however many notes you were using.
Here are all the pieces I used.
And the finished project.
Hope you're having a wonderful weekend.

My Pretty Laptop

Don't you just love my laptop? I did this using Stampin'Up!'s Definitely Decorative Decor Elements. This is the Upsy Daisies. I used the Rose Red (117921 $9.95) and also the Pretty in Pink (117922 $9.95) and layered them slightly off to give the shadow effect. I will admit it was a little time consuming because I'm such a perfectionist, but they are really easy to apply. Ok and maybe working at my mom's coffee table without good lighting probably wasn't the best either. LOL I actually have some of the daisies left to use on another project. My laptop is a little smaller than some out there so I didn't use them all.
Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by. I've had a few people unsubscribe from my blog lately and for that I feel bad. I know that I've shared a lot of what has been going on with me and my family personally, but I really intend for this blog to be about my Stampin'Up! stamping. Hang in there with me and I promise I'll be sharing lots of that in the coming weeks and months. I so appreciate all of you.

No Stamping, but Crafty None the Less

This is one of the awesome birdhouses my dad has been making. He loves his woodworking and it's a good thing. He's also just recently made me a buffet for our dining room. Gotta have some place to put all those dishes I love to collect. *grin* The only thing is that he doesn't paint. He hates to paint so I'll be doing that part. Maybe I'll be sharing that later this week. My daddy is the best. He's always so willing to do so much for so many. Lots to accomplish this week. Have to keep those painters at the house moving and the contractor as well. I hate this part, but in the end it will be so worth it.
Have a great day!

It's a Colorful Day!

What do I mean by the title? Well my girls and I are going to be leaving shortly to make the finalization's on our paint colors for the house. That means drywall is up and things are moving along a little faster now. The kitchen cabinets are here as is the flooring for the kitchen, dining room, bathroom and entryway. I'm getting excited and so looking forward to the day we get to move back home. It's been 4 1/2 months now and it will probably be another month, but the Lord has taught us so much and He has truly blessed us beyond measure. I've always said that when the Lord takes something good away from you He has something even better in store, but now I truly can say I'm living that. We are going to have a nicer house than we had before and the costly repairs that come with a house as old as ours (over 100 yrs.) were sure to be right around the corner, but the Lord has met that need and our house should take us well into our old age. Not necessarily the way that I would have planned for, but I know that God always knows what's best and has our best interest at heart even when it doesn't fell like it. I am so thankful for His goodness and love.

Speaking of thankful. We are thankful that Frank was able to return to work this past Monday and is feeling and doing fine. The doctor truly felt that the iodine radiation treatment would take care of the small spot of cancer in his neck area that was left.

And last, but not least I have a couple of cards I made last week while we were in Detroit during Frank's treatments. These are made using the new hostess set The More the Merrier. All items used are Stampin'Up! of course. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

Like to earn this great set which is on page 17 of the New 2009/2010 Idea Book and Catalog? Contact me and we'll set a date for your workshop. Fall is a great time for a workshop.
