Naked Mail!

I got some "naked mail" today from one of my upline's swaps. It was awesome to open the door and see a clear plastic juice container sitting below my mailbox. It was stuffed full of the coolest stuff...check it out:
I got a Martha Stewart Punch (cosmos)--my first one! Also a super cute altered composition book, a tiny mosaic CB folder (which i've been wanting for quite some time), two spools of ribbon, a cute bird stamp, crocheted fleurettes, cool bar brad embellishments, little pearls, little rhinestones, antibacterial gel (love that stuff) and the cutest little card identifying my secret sister...Joystamps4 from SCS!
I'm loving my new little stash...i've been punching cosmos out of everything i can get my hands on! :)
A HUGE thank you to Joy for such a great gift! I'll be sure to post my first cosmos/tiny mosaic/rhinestones/bird stamp creation!
Happy Stampin'!

A Thank You for my Great Niece

My great niece is almost five. For my birthday this year, she made cupcakes and shared them with me including one she made "special just for me" with lots of icing because it was my birthday. We had a great day spending time together just playing and talking about stuff. I don't get to see her often, and she usually takes a while to warm up to me, but lately she's been my buddy. So i made her a special thank you card for my cupcake:
I used a stamp set I got at the 2008 Heirloom Rubber Stamping Expo in Allentown. You construct the puppies piece by piece, and depending on how you put the pieces together, they come out with individual personalities. She loves puppies, so I thought she'd like it. Plus she loves getting mail. I came across the picture while cleaning off my camera, so I thought I'd share. The best part is that I made it pretty quickly using scraps of paper and ribbon! I love that!

Happy Stampin'!

Tuesday, June 9, 2009


It's been a while since I've updated and I apologize to the whole three readers I might have, and since my only "follower" is my husband, I'll make this brief...between being sick, dealing with stuff at work, and suffering a general lack of motivation lately (just can't seem to find my oomph lately,) I haven't updated this blog in ages. I apologize. I'll spare you the mundane details and say I will be committed to keeping it more up to date. Besides, my friend Sakura says I should so she can read it. See? She's one of the three. :) Besides, Patti started her own blog now and I can't let her get ahead of me. It's the BFF competence clause, LOL.

So, on with the news then...everyone knows what time of year it is...RETIREMENT TIME. Out with the old, in with the new. Stampin' Up! will be retiring a slew of stamp sets as well as a load of accessories, including all the In Color stuff to make way for all new In Colors that will debut in the Fall/Winter 2009 catalog which comes out in July. All I can say is this: the new In Colors are quite nice, and very trendy. Also, my sneak peek promises some newer and trendier designs (did they hire a new designer or two?) and some great new projects.

The bad news is that the accessories are on a first come, first serve basis and once they're gone, they're gone for good. I'll be listing the accessories that are out of stock and no longer available as I learn, but for now, here's the listing:
