Wow! Will It Ever Be Finished!

I've been working on this blog it seems like forever! I'm getting the hang of adding links and other information so that it will be an active site. I'll be posting new products and information for Stampin'Up! June is approaching fast and our new catalog will be out. I'm just so excited to see the finished product and see what great new ideas the designers have come up with. I'm taking off to Washington D. C next week with my granddaughter, Lexy and the 8th grade class at Harriman Middle School. After I return, I'm going to work on a date for a weekly, bi-weekly or monthly meeting for a "Make & Take". Also, gearing up for the Oak Ridge sale in June. I'll attach a flyer and get date info out asap.

Great Weekend!

I've spent most of my weekend working on my blog. I'm trying to get everything set up the way I like and adding buttons to assist those who take the time to check out my site. I started out my Saturday taking a gun class to allow me to apply for my gun carry permit. Had a blast with my family and friends at the class and actually shot 86 out of 100. I was extremely pleased with myself since I've never been out shooting. Then I spent the rest of my weekend in my craft room along with working on my blog layout. I'm trying to get it to work with my Stampin'Up! account so that I won't have to try to post to two blogs. Hope anyone checking out my site with bear with me while I work out the kinks and get it looking and working great! I'm also working on getting some of my projects posted. I'm setting up a video camera in my craft room so I can record my work for YouTube. Stay tuned for further updates.

  • Valentine Chalkboard Wall

    Jan 31 I have had this chalkboard wall in my kitchen for about 3-1/2 years now and I have had so much fun with it. Lots of times it is just empty and my daughter Lucy and her friends will fill it up with scribbles and pictures, but my most favorite is when I take the time to add something special to it for the season. read more...

Busy, Busy, Busy!!!

Wow! Having such a hard time getting my days working with my planning. Seems like just as I have my plan laid out something pops up and messes with it. I have been working on the design of my blog and hope anyone checking it out likes the new design. I'm going to continue working on it but also going to get myself finishing up on my craft room now that everything is moved in and ready to set it up. Been checking out some great craft storage ideas which I'll share with my readers. Will show some beginning pics where I worked at the dining room table for several months but finally moved into a room after rearranging furniture and getting rid of some things we didn't need. I'm so excited to have a private area to work that I don't have to worry about the kids getting into or that I don't have to try to hide when people coming over. Every day going to spend some time working on the blog but also working on some projects. Look forward to getting really started. Also, purchased quite a few of the new spring products with Stampin'Up! so will be glad to show those off!
