I’m up late


I love blog hops. I almost always find something new and interesting, be it a product, company or just inspirational art. This week doing the Friday Friends with Flair on Unity I came upon a link to a cool challenge blog that was new to me. It’s called the pink ninjas. This week they are celebrating getting 100 followers and the challenge is to create something to do with the number 100. I decided to do 100 little stamps.

Can you believe I only really got into stamping in the past year?  I have a lot more than 100 stamps, but I thought it would be cool to showcase some of these little ones.

Stamps are from Unity Stamp Co., a*muse, Autumn Leaves; I’m sure there are some I’m forgetting.  My apologies to those companies.  Sorry!  I sure thought 100 stamps would take up more space than they did.

Get Sketchy Challenge #1


I was recently pointed to a new card challenge site, Get Sketchy.  This is their first challenge (with a bonus to use pattern paper):

(Note:  Please excuse my messy living room and lack of fashion sense.  Thank you.)

Hi everyone!  Do you remember when I promised I would show you the stuff I won from the Paper Crafts blog?  Well I finally had some time over the weekend to make a video.  It’s going to be in 3 parts.  It was supposed to be in 2 parts but I ran out of space on my memory card and I got cut off.  So here you go:

A New Video Tuesday


As promised, here is the new video I told you about yesterday.

It’s Monday


Blah, why does it seem like it’s always Monday?

I have some new videos to make. I want to share with you the super cute stuff my sister bought for me. She loved the wedding album I made and now she wants a honeymoon album! Stay tuned to see some super cute summer/island/vacation themed products.

I also bought some stamps from Unity Stamp Co. and they just came in. These stamps are so great! This is my first purchase from them and I think they are a great company to deal with. The shipping was super quick and the products are wonderful, high quality stamps.

Plus, I got my prize from Two Peas in a Bucket. These are adorable die-cuts. There are four pages of them! I think they are from My Little Shoebox, but if I’m wrong I’ll update to let you know.

I’ll try to get to work on this video tonight. I’ve had a dead battery for a couple of days and I finally remembered to charge it. So check back tomorrow for a video post of my new stuff!



I’m so sad.  I haven’t been neglecting my blog on purpose.  I’ve just been having a bad week.  My pretty kitty, Baby, died.  So I’ve been spending most of my time crying bucketfuls of tears.

I do have to admit, it appears I am one lucky gal.  I was the winner on Mellypea’s warehouse walk giveaway for last week!  All I can say is wow!  That’s 2 prizes in about 2 weeks.

When I get all this stuff I’m definetely going to share it with you.  I have the 2 prizes coming, plus some stamps from Unity Stamp Co. This is my first order with them.  All of their stamps look super-cute.  I really want to join their Kit-of-the-Month Club.  Maybe I should budget for that.

Since I don’t have any scrapbook related stuff to show you how about checking out some pictures I took over the weekend?  Does that sound okay?  Let me know what you think.

I’m a winner!!!


I’m so excited!  I just got an email from P. Kelly Smith at Paper Crafts magazine and I am a winner!  Remember all that blog hopping I was doing last week and I told you guys about that great contest?  Well I won!  I am so excited!  Can’t you tell?  See all the exclamation points!!!!  That is a sign.  Well, according to the email I won five paper collections and a copy of Card Creations, Volume 7.  Oh my, I never win anything.  This is so great.  When I get the prize I’ll be sure to show you all what I got.  If I’m not back before the weekend have a safe and happy 4th!
