A little Valentine Tutorial…

Jan 19, 2009

I guess you can tell I LOVE Maya Road. Seriously love everything Deb and Caroline make and the great thing about their products are they mix and match perfectly. I always look at their coaster albums and think they would make wonderful fabric patterns. Well needing a break from book projects yesterday I decided to use the bird pattern to create my own fabric embellishment. Talk about super EASY to make. Seriously easy. This is the first piece of fabric anything I have ever sewn. Yes I got the sewing machine to sew on paper. Anyway, I thought I would create a little tutorial thinking you might like to give this a try. Supplies Needed: 2-Ring Heart Binder (1 page) Sheer Heart Scallop Book (1 page) Heart Chipboard Book (1 page) Bird Chipboard Book...

And the fun begins…

Jan 15, 2009

Thanks everyone for sharing all the sweet things you do for Valentine’s Day. Ansley enjoyed picking a winner. Actually so much so she picked two. Congrats to… Valerie Myers… Ansley liked the balloon taped to your son’s skateboard. She said it would be nice if I did the same thing in her favorite spots of our house. Guess what I will be doing this Valentine’s Day. And Leonie Aland… Ansley loved that you put the hearts in your husbands lunch box and embarrassed him in front of all of his manly friends… typical teenage girl. I hope you two enjoy my Cupid’s Workshop. Finally the fun has begun. I don’t think I could have waited another...

If you would like to win a spot to join in on all the fun in my Cupid’s Workshop just leave a comment telling me some of the fun things you do for your family on Valentine’s Day. Ansley will pick a winner tonight. I am knee deep in a book deadline right now so back to creating I go…. but the good thing is I am more than half way finished creating and I am in love with every single project. I cannot wait for you all to see what I have been working on. The not sharing is killing...

Did you know…

Jan 9, 2009

Maya Road has a Valentine’s Day release? If you didn’t you need to check out this cute little “Love Ticket” Singleton Stamp. I love that the words are seperate stamps too, so perfect for little sentiments on tiny tags. Then they have this adorable “Forever Postage” Singleton Stamp. I really love this trio… so perfect to accent your Valentine’s or candy wrappers. They also have this wonderful Maya Mist set of Red and Silver… gorgeous colors used separately or in combination. The “Love Keychain” set is so cute and has so many possibilities for projects… no favorite here as I love each one. And last but not least they have this really cute “Key Keychain” set. This set would also be cute as embellishments for a new home or car for those of you...

A little bit of this and a little bit of that…

Jan 5, 2009

First, thank you for all the sweet email of well wishes for Ansley and Alan. They are feeling better. Ansley did not go to school today as she is still pretty zapped but she is better and should be able to go back tomorrow.  I think I can now take off my nurse cap. To all you nurses out there… Big huge cheers to you… you all earn every cent you make and I’m certain you should be paid more… what a job. I am so glad it warmed up here a bit over the last few days or we would be having a nasty icy mess right now on the roads. Icicles are not a common site on my birdhouse. We are having lots of drizzly rain that is now starting to freeze...

Then Alan was hit with it at 5 a.m. this morning… I am spraying Lysol like a crazy woman and scrubbing any and everything they come in contact with… I pray you all miss this stuff because it is bad, bad, bad! I will be back to posting in a few days. I hope you all started 2009 better than...

Cupid’s Workshop…

Jan 1, 2009

I am hosting a Valentine’s Day workshop starting January 15th and ending February 15th. The cost for this workshop is $14.95 and will include two weeks of creating as well as two weeks of additional access to the private blog. These additional two weeks will allow you time to finish up your projects just in time for Valentine’s Day. Like my 12 Days of Christmas workshop these projects have been designed so you can use products you already have on hand or exactly as I have created mine since a complete supply list and step by step instructions are provided for each of the 8 projects. Some projects you will need to purchase a few items if you want them to be just like mine. But most of the products you do need to...
