Hello Stampers!!

This post is going to cover lots. It's going to be my....."getting caught up" post. I really want to figure out this blogspot site so I can make my blog THE place to be and share. I plan on having a tip of the day!! So at least I can post that if life gets really crazy and I can't manage more than that, at least I'll be posting. That's the plan!
I am a Stampin Up rep and of course hope I gain customers though my blogging and videos (when I start making them:-) But most of all I want to share my love of art, all kinds of art! Life gets busy because my husband, Joe and I also have other businesses. I am a Reiki Master/teacher, do Angel card readings, and teach decorative painting, Joe does Hypnotherapy and is level 1 Reiki. We both facilitate Heal Your LIfe workshops, offer EFT and other healing methods. I mention it only because all of that, family which includes 10 grandchildren (#10 is arriving this Thursday) a parrot, cat and of course, Emily........I'm busy. LOL I love every single thing that I do so will continue to do them all. I just need to make quality time for each "thing".


Ok, these pictures didn't post in the order I thought they would.

Tip of the day 1-12-09
When you are teaching a class or just crafting on your own, and you have some small items like brads or a piece of ribbon etc. that you are using on your card or layout. You know how they alwas get lost under stuff or end up on the floor cause the monkey or cat came by? Well put down a line of adhesive, snail, ATG gun, whatever and stick those little buggers down on your work surface and there they will be when you are ready for them. And that is the "tip of the day".


Inside of Birthday card. (another tip) when you smudge your card, stamp another image or add an embellishment. In this case, I stamped a single cupcake. So, it fell? So?? It's better than throwing the whole card away or looking at a smudge:-)


No time to crop photos, I must post today. I told my upline, Donna Centemore I was posting today if it was the last thing I did. LOL


Inside of next card.


I love this shadow technique and wiping ink on the photo paper with baby wipes, so did my students. I also really enjoy the set Lovely As A Tree.





Psssst...........If your still reading............I got my box of new catalogs today!!!! I LOVE all the new things. I REALLY love the see thru dies!!! Especially the see thru die that will cut a full sized card shaped just like a Rolodex card!!! Oh, the possiblities. I now know why I bought two Rolodexs a while back. I will be turning them into tabletop scrapbooks of my family as soon as that die is in my little hands!!!
If you don't have a Stampin Up rep and want to order online, just click here and go to my website. The new catalog goes into effect on January 19th. You will be pleased!!


Until tomorrow....................Namaste', Monkey Hugs, and Blessings to you.
