Paper Pumpkin and Other News

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.

I have a craft sale coming up this weekend and have been feverishly making some fun stuff to sell.  If you are in Colorado and want to check us out, here is some more information:

I have so much stuff sitting on my desk waiting to be photographed!  Hopefully I can share some of these marvelous projects with you in the coming weeks.  Sassy Chic and Stamp Camp North are both coming up at the beginning of December.  I still haven't finalized my projects for these events, but look for pix of those as well as more information about these two fun camps.

Thanks for visiting!

Such a Busy Time of Year!

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.


In the meantime, SU has published it's retiring list from the Holiday mini and there are some sad things on it!  I am sorry to lose both the Woodlands embossing folder and the Wonderland stamp set, both are my favorites from this mini catalog. Click HERE to go to my SU website and see all the items that will be retired.  These items will be on a first come, first served basis and when they are gone - the are GONE, so check it out if you want to get these products.

We had a great time at Stamp Camp North and I will get some pix taken of the cards and post them this week. 

I have a craft sale coming up on Nov. 21, 2015:
This promises to be a great event and if you are in the neighborhood you should stop by and say hello (and maybe buy a few things for your gift giving this holiday season).

Hopefully, things will start to wind down for me as we approach "D-day" (departure day) right after Christmas.  I will keep you posted on our progress.

Thanks for visiting!

Sassy Chic Stamp Camp - November 7, 2015

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:


We will be serving soup, salad and desert and have lots and lots of door prizes (all nicely wrapped in festive holiday paper).  Here is the flyer for this camp:

I hope to have some pictures of the cards from this camp to share with you next week!

Long Time, No See!

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:


Here are some cards that I am working on for our Craft Sale at the Rose Hill Grange (I will post a flyer for this as well as more details of my projects in the next few days).


In October I had:
3 stamp camps
1 senior class
1 dinner meeting with stamping friends (1 make & take project)
1 downline meeting (2 make & take projects)

In November I have:
2 stamp camps
1 craft sale
1 dinner meeting with stamping friends  (1 make & take project)

In December:  we will talk about this later!

We had the kiddos here for Halloween and had so much fun and I will post some pix from this as well as our trip to the pumpkin patch and also preview the card we will be making at the Sassy Chic Stamp Camp this Saturday.  It is our annual holiday celebration and this is an event that everyone looks forward to every year.

I relish being this busy, but I know I have sorely neglected my blog as a result.  We are still on schedule for heading to the boat for a 3-4 month sail in the Keys and Bahamas and will update that too in the following few weeks.  I know that I still need to report on the whole trip from MA to FL, but I am still getting through the photos and trying to digest the awesomeness (is that a word) of the voyage.  It was a mind blowing experience and deserves a whole post of it's own on the "Uncertain Sailor" section of this blog.

I will post some pix of swaps and projects in progress over the next few weeks.  Taking photos of everything has been challenging, but I think I am getting a handle on it.

Thanks for visiting and thanks for being patient with me as I navigate through this busy time of the year!
