The year is winding down...

This little guy is one of my favorites. I have no idea who makes the stamp, but he seemed a natural for this technique.

2007 is winding down, and in the last few days of the year I like to reflect on the past year and my goals for the coming year. I have made a lot of new friend this year, and I am thankful for them. I am thankful for all the new customers I have. I am thankful that I am reasonably healthy, as is my family, and even though we are poor in money, we are rich in the things that count.

My wish for you is to have a safe, healthy, and prosperous New Year!

My husband and I are huge New England Patriot football fans, and last night's win was fantastic. They are now undefeated in a regular season. Can they win 2 playoff games and then the Super Bowl? We certainly hope so and will be right there rooting for them on each game.

I have lots to do, so I will sign off for now. See you soon!

New Images Coming Soon!


I'm excited! New stamps coming soon! These stamps fit perfectly on a domino and there are 17 to choose from. I have the plates all made, I just have to put them on the website, which I will try to do this week.

Shopping's Done! Whew!


I've been so busy lately, I hadn't had time to do ANY Christmas Shopping. I was beginning to worry, but this morning my daughter called, the granddaughters were with their other grandmother, and did I want to go shopping? Can you spell relief?



My hubby and I had decided what to get the oldest granddaughter, Rachel (I can't tell you what it is, she might read my blog), told me which store to get it at and where it was located in the store. My daughter and I went to the store, and it wasn't there! We went through every article in every part of that section, and it wasn't there! I was beginning to panic! I finally tracked down a salesperson, and he said, "Oh, my employees packed those up to send back." Now I was really starting to panic. However, he looked in the stockroom, and lo and behold, they hadn't been sent back yet! Thank goodness his employees were inefficient!



Then we had to shop for the 4 year old. With all the toy recalls, what to get her? We finally settled on a 4-in-one doll carriage for her new baby doll that Santa's leaving, and some play food for her new Dora kitchen (also from Santa).



Would you believe I'm still making Christmas cards? I still have about 12 to make. I think I can crank them out tomorrow. I hope so!



It's very hot and humid (sorry to all you who are in the north and midwest with your snow and ice storms. I would welcome some cooler weather. It just doesn't seem like Christmas when it's this warm.



Well, we attended my hubby's Christmas party last night, and a Christmas party tonight, and I'm about all done in. We only have a get-together with my brother and sisters from out of town next Sunday evening, and that's fine with me. I need to make time one evening to go with the granddaughters to look at Christmas lights. We have some lovely decorated homes in our neighborhood, and then we go to the next town to look at theirs, and it's always a fun time.



So, it's off to bed for me. I hope you have sweet dreams, and have a restful day tomorrow. And remember to take some time to craft.

Cards for the Troops



All the Christmas cards to the troops have been mailed. Yippee! I had a request from a captain for cards for the troops to mail home, and thanks to Melissa, a TAC angel, I have cards to send them. I've gotten all my personal Christmas cards done and in the mail, and I'll be posting more here.

Tim Holtz has graciously allowed me to post a link to his blog. If you haven't checked it out, please do! He's doing the 12 tags of Christmas, with lots of different techniques that would be good for cards year round. I've put it in my links section, but here it is again... http://timholtz.typepad.com/.

Have a great crafting day!

The Stockings Were Hung...


I wanted to share this Christmas card I made for my youngest granddaughter, Emilie. I used real wallpaper for the wall, brick paper for the fireplace, stamped the fire, and used stickers for the snowman and stockings. The hearth and mantle were scraps of paper where I had used up some leftover alcohol ink and look like marble in real life. It was an easy card to make, and I'm sure she'll like it.
For those of you who are finished with your Christmas shopping, you have my highest regards. I haven't even started yet. I know what I'm getting the 10 year old, but I have no idea what to get the 4 year old. There are so many toys that have been recalled that it's scary. I hate to buy her clothes only, so I'm in a dilemma. I'll figure it out, though....I always do.
I've just about finished my Christmas cards, and have most of them addressed, just waiting for stamps, so a trip to the post office is in order. It's a madhouse this time of year. I still have to sort out some cards that are going to the troops and get them in the mail, so I think 1 trip to the post office is going to have to suffice.
I'll be back soon with some more Christmas cards, but wanted to share this with you.

It's me again...


It's me again! I had a brainstorm after dinner and decided to make this card. I love the colors. It's not showing it in the scan, but the poinsettia is pink, and the 2 colors look gorgeous together.
Just wanted to share.

More Christmas

Good afternoon! I've been a busy girl today. After making out my Christmas Card list, and checking it twice, I found that I don't have anough cards made. And this is after I made 200 cards! Of course, I mailed off 140 of those to the troops.

So, I got busy, and made 10 more, but I still have a few more to make to have enough for MY list. And hubby hasn't given me HIS list yet!

Anyway, I thought I'd share a few more cards for inspiration.




This card is a matchbook card.I really like to make these cards, and they are soooooo easy!



I liked the look of this card....very soothing with the blues and purples. In case you didn't know it, blue is my favorite color.





And a snowman card. I love snowmen! This is another matchbook card. The scan doesn't snow it, but there are also white snowflakes stamped along with the blue ones.

I hope you have gotten some inspiration today, and I hope you get some crafting done.

I have a busy weekend ahead...making more Christmas cards, going to dinner with my daughter and her family, and tomorrow we'll be going to the cemetary to put the Christmas flowers on my parent's graves.
