Happy Holidays to you all! Gosh, it seems WAY to early to start saying that, but alas, here I am announcing it to anyone who casts a glance in my direction. To say I love this time of year, is a gross understatement.  Which brings me to telling you a little bit about myself;I moved to Idaho five years ago after a career as a 911 dispatcher and perpetual Administration of Justice student in northern California.  My husband, who is also in law enforcement, and I were expecting, and decided that two parents working shift work was not the way to raise a child.  So we re-located (along with some other family members as well, because who wants to raise a baby without grandparents around right?  My parents and my husband’s mom also moved to Idaho around the same time frame).  After moving to Idaho, I became crafty.  I opened a bakery, and got a few stamp sets from my cousin, Lena, who was selling SU! at the time.  After she got me addicted (yeah, that’s the word) she opened me to a world tha…
Happy Sunday to you all!!! Are you still in a turkey and Stuffing induced coma?  I think I am… just sluggish still I guess.  Although I will say that I weigh less now than the day of the feast, so go figure! ha ha haLast night I decided to surf TGF Challenge blog, and I saw that there were two that I hadn’t done that were still open.  So I called my Pal and asked her to play along.  After our first card, she ran out of glue… so I had to fly solo.  So, the first card was a sketch, here’s the results:And here’s the inside:The next project was to make a tag… I don’t believe that I’ve ever just made a tag.  hummm… Here’s what I came up with:So, those were my projects last night.  I hope that you enjoy.  I have a cupcake order to get working on and I think that I need to find something to eat before my stomach calls the authorities on me.  (it’s growling a lot!!)I’ll see you all tomorrow, I have a SUPER DUPER big announcement!  HUGE!
Ok, so it’s been quite some time since I’ve posted.  I’ve been a busy girl… sick too.  I hate when the entire family gets sick, then passes it around like a white elephant gift at a bad Christmas party. Ha ha ha No body really wants the gift, but they take it and pass it along just to play nice.  My busy week started with a run to the horrible place that sucks the life from you before you even get into the parking lot.  Yup, Wal Mart… and seriously… I have one checker that I LOVE, she’s the best.  things scan right, if they don’t she fixes it, and she’s friendly, and perceptive, and efficient, and FAST!!! She’s the only bright spot in the entire place… Trust me, I know, I’ve looked! hahaha Anyways, I ran out of powdered sugar to make Butter cream frosting, and so I had to run there to grab some ($64 later, I was finally checking out) and as I walked back to my car, this is what was parked next to me…. Ok, so forgive me a cruel chuckle… I know that the truck was there second as the red…

A little TGF prior to Caffine...

So, it’s been a while since I have made a card… I’ve been so darn busy with baking for the Seasons Boutique (happening right now!!!) that I’ve forgotten what it’s like to sit at my stamp desk and create something that is not made from sugar! ha ha ha
Ok, so, my subject matter didn’t stray too far from the kitchen…. but I have to ease back into these things!! Geeze people! ha ha ha  I was surfing online this morning and one of my fave spots to go is www.thegreetingfarm.com.  I noticed their challenge for today, tossed my laptop aside, and went in to stamp at oh dark thirty, even BEFORE my morning coffee… go figure! I’m fairly certain that every scrap of paper I used today was provided to me by my bestest Pal, Lena, so shout out to her and a big thanks for all the wonderful scraps you always send my way!  Also, LENA… are you so proud of me??? Look at this card and notice what I left off… just for you…. yup… finally I made a card with NO RIBBON!!!! You must be SHOCKED! hahahha

Ok, well …

It's a Big 'un!

Ok, let me start by saying I totally intended to post on here way more regularly…. but I’ve been soooooo busy!!!! Ha ha ha  here’s how my last two weeks have been.

First of all, let me show you a picture of my and the one who I call “Pal!”  She is my cousin, Lena, and a mere 11 months older than me.  Everyone says we should have been twins, because we have a bond like that; so close that we are eerily on the same page at all times! ha ha ha  I love her to pieces and we rarely get to spend any time together.  This picture was taken on my recent trip to California. 


Now… let’s get down to it!  The past two weeks have been rought with illness (just colds, thank goodness!), birthdays, baking, and even a few cards.  Let’s start with the illnesses off of that list, shall we?
Evan got sick… not super bad sick, just that “Momma I’m miserable,” type of sick.  For my 5 year old to hang out on the couch for 3 days… that’s like WOW!  But really all he did was snooze and cough, cough and snooze.  M…
