Baby Card

Working on some baby cards today. My stach is getting low! I used a retired ' Up! set, Animal Stories, that I haven't been able to part with. Used a Martha Stewart border punch to punch the eyelet border. Card sells for $2.50 and I have 4 of them. More baby cards to come....stay tuned!!

Back To School

It's that time already to be thinking about going back to school.  The summers always seem to go so very fast. I always have great intentions of getting lots of crafting done and spending time working on my scrapbooks.  But, again, that didn't happen this summer.  The summer was filled with 18 days in California, Arizona and the lands in between. It was filled with early morning runs before it got too hot outside.  It was filled with time spent with my boys at the pool and walks to Dairy Queen. It was filled with late night TV and late morning sleep ins.  I wouldn't trade the summer for anything but it is time to get back into the swing of things. My monthly stamp class/club meets this Thursday (always the 2nd Th of the month) and we will be making 2 teacher gifts. The fee is $5 for the class...pencils included!  RSVP so I'll know how many peeps will be coming.  Here is a sample of one of the teacher items we will be making. This box/wrapper can be used for any thin long object (candy bar, pixie stix, straws) so if you don't have a teacher in your life or the life of your child...not to worry, you can learn how to make the pencil holder and remake them later to fill with what you would like.  2nd item will be a note holder to match.  Now, who doesn't need more paper on their desk or note paper by the phone?  Hope you can make it.
