Thank you to everyone for the consolation messages about Harold. We are in the throes of preparations for both Christmas and for our trip south. I will be posting about our holiday celebrations and as I can on the ongoing saga of our sailing adventures so stay tuned.
There won't be much crafting stuff happening here for a bit, but I hope you can hang in there till we return and get back to our normal schedule.
Thanks for visiting!
Yesterday we had to say goodbye to our darling Harold. He has been a part of our family since 1998, but he just got too tired and too sick to go on anymore. He had a good life and I will cherish my memories of him forever.
Have you checked out the monthly Paper Pumpkin kit in the mail from Stampin' Up! yet? While it took a bit to get this program off the ground, it surely has now hit the ground running and the monthly kits are simply fantastic. Here's a video about November's kit:
I have not received mine yet and now I will be out there waiting for the mailman! Isn't it just too cute and perfect timing for those last minute Christmas cards? To get yours, go to my SU website and sign up now.

Things are certainly hopping in the old craft cave of late. This has resulted in not so much posting on the blog and I apologize. Things are happening on the home front - new driveway is almost a reality! We have had some cold weather and some snow, but we are hanging in and waiting for the end of December when we will head to the boat for our latest adventure! More posts about that to come.
Saturday is our annual holiday luncheon at the Sassy Chic Stamp Camp in Longmont, Colorado. Everyone, campers and demonstrators alike, really look forward to this camp every year. Here is the card they will be making at my table:
It has been a long time since I posted and I was reminded of that by my darling 9 year old granddaughter recently. She told me "Grandma, I visited your blog and you have not posted for a really, really long time." When this kind of thing happens, you sit up and take notice!
I have been so very, very busy in October and November and December isn't look all that good either! I have tons of stuff to share and will try to get some things posted.
Here is what the worktable looks like currently:
I am teaching a class on October 12, 2015 at the Longmont Senior Center called Coasting Towards Christmas. Here is the information on the class:
We had a chance to take all the cousins out to dinner last night at Cinzetti's. A grand time was had by all and no one went home hungry!
September's Stamp Camp North will be held on September 19, 2015 at the Westminster Elks Lodge in Westminster, Colorado. I love this camp and the gals (both campers and demonstrators) who participate. We always have an enjoyable day creating together. Here is the card for September's camp at my table:
