You're Never More Than a Thought Away

I really love sayings that can be punched out and layered. Makes my job really easy when creating a card. Whimsical Words is just the set for that. I also love the combination of the curly swirly font mixed with the clean and simple ones. Better stock up on the Pink Flamingo paper while I still can, so cute!

Ice Cream & Presents and Cake

Oh My! Yes, I am approaching the birthday month in my family. Count them, 5 birthdays in one month. My brother-in-law, mom, husband and both daughters. My father-in-law is not far behind them with an April 1 birthday. So needless to say I have to come up with birthday cards, but 3 masculine ones to boot!

Here's one that uses many retired items. I really loved this paper and I'm kinda sorry I didn't get more.

I've been thinking

about starting another blog about my flea marketing and design stuff. Of course I'm not going to stop posting on this blog. I would just like to keep things organized. And well to be perfectly honest flea marketing and design is my first love. So stay tuned for the introduction of the soon to be named second blog.

Fun Makeup Blog


Came across this fun makeup blog. I love watching demos on how to make things or in this case how to achieve certain looks with makeup. Tiffany is really good and her makeup is very clean and fun. I particularly like the pink eyeshadow demo. I've always wanted to try that look.

My New Tool


I just got this Saturday. I'm always either in the process of painting furniture or saying I want to paint furniture. I'll get a piece and someone usually my husband will say, "what are you going to do with that?" I answer "paint it." Seriously....that's what I say. I don't like painting furniture with a brush or roller, just takes too long. So I've wanted one for a while. I have several pieces of furniture I want to paint, so now I just have to find the time to do it. I'm also making a trip to Canton at the end of the month, so who knows what I'll bring back.........to paint.

Super Quick Valentines

I needed to whip up a couple of Valentines super quick. I also needed them to be a single layer with very little embellishment, mailing them you know. So here's what I came up with.

Sarah's House

I am completely obsessed with this show. Now, this is the Canadian HGTV link. They for some reason have a better website for the show than the regular HGTV site. Well it could have something to do with the fact that its filmed in Canada (I think). However it does air on the American HGTV channel. I've been watching Sarah since she did her Room Service show and Design, Inc. Both are really good shows too. Can't wait for Sarah's Cottage.

Stamp Camp Cards - Valentines

These are the two Valentines cards the ladies made yesterday at my Spring Stamp Camp.

I had such a good turn out. A few of the ladies were new to the group, I hope they had a good time and will come back for more stamping fun.
