Treats For My Aly’s 3rd Birthday.


Aly’s 3rd birthday was on the 6th and we had a little party here at home for her. Al helped me decorate Aly’s cake, which was the sweetest thing I have ever seen. Aly is a very lucky little girl to have such a great Daddy! Of course the cake had to be Cinderella, because Aly is a Princess and is all about the Disney Princesses.


At daycare they had a small celebration for Aly with mini cupcakes and presents. These are the treats that I made for each of the kids. They are just little packets of M&Ms cover with a strip of 8 1/2″ x 3″ natural card stock. I rounded the corners and stapled it at the top making sure to go through the candy wrapper. Pretty simple. I through them together in like 20 minutes. My plan was to make these all pink and girle, but my boys said that wasn’t fair since there were two boys at daycare as well as themselfs and they couldn’t take a treat that was all pink and frilly. Boys! So this is why they are red and not pink in case you were wondering. These would make a great Valentine treat for class parties or co workers.

We are going to get family pictures taken today, so I need to run and figure out what the heck we are going to wear…oh the joy! Have a great weekend!!

Here we go…a stamp camp anyone??


OK, so my new goal is to post on Wednesdays and on the weekends. That is when I am around home and have a little more time to play and get on the computer.

This is my stamp camp card for tomorrow night. I used the “Just B” set on this card and a ton of punches! I am part of the Mile High Stampers in Littleton Colorado and every month we have a 12 cards for $25 stamp camp. Hope everyone will like it. It does look better in person then this picture.  Do you think it is missing anything?? If you are in the Denver metro area and interested in joining us send me an email/comment and I will get you directions!

Have a great rest of the week!

My first card of 2008


Here it is, can you tell I am tired of the snow already. I need some color!! It is really sad that I am so sick of winter and it just officially started. Maybe it is because of all the snow we had last year over and over again. I am ready for spring…gee only 3 more months…blah!

This set ,” Time Well Spent” is a level three hostess set in the new 2008 Spring and Summer Stampin’ UP! catty. I love the sentiments and how fun and fresh this set is. I used water color crayons and markers on this so that some of the colors were soft and others popped. This will be one of the cards we will make for my next Stamp Camp on the 11th.

Have a super day!!

Happy New Year!!


Well here it is, my new room. I am so thrilled to have a place of my own to create. To tell you the truth it is a little overwhelming that I have no idea what to do with it. I have all of these blank white walls and have no idea what to put up. Like I have time to decorate the room anyway…ha! There is a large window to the right, which is the front of the house and it lets in such great light during the day. I still need to unpack a lot and put it away, but I now have all this great storage under the desk in those cabinets..whoot!!

I did manage to work on a card yesterday, but that will be posted tomorrow. It felt really good to get something done even if it was just one card. I can’t wait to do more!

Hope you all had a fabulous New Year! Al and I are looking to a New Year with a fresh start. Thank you so much for the warm wishes. I didn’t realize how much I needed them until I read them, so Thanks!!

Happy New Year!!!

Help I am drowning in a pile of mess…

I can’t tell you all how much I have missed posting. Since my last post we have moved into another house, started new jobs, put my daughter in daycare (which was the hardest of all),celebrated birthdays and Christmas, and so much more the list could go on and on. I appreciate your patience and hope that you will keep checking back as I am planning on posting some picts as soon as I can dig myself out of the mess that December has left.

I am excited that I have a new stamp room all to myself!! I am not in a dining room anymore with half of my stuff in different parts of the house. I am still trying to sort out where my things are and will be going in my new room. I am DYING to work on some cards!!! I have even had some scrapbook layouts pop into my head…yikes! That is so unlike me. Now if I could just get my ideas onto paper! I have high hopes that over New Years day I will be able to sneak away and get crafty! Wish me luck and look for some new ideas in 2008!!

Big Hugs and Crafty Wishes!!!
