A little bit of Lola love…

Dang this lit­tle Lola puppy is so sweet and so GOOD! Terri and Lola came to visit today so of course that meant a photo shoot. Here are a few of our favorites. I think she would look cute on a Jones Soda bot­tle. If you think so too please vote here, here or here. Wish­ing you all a won­der­ful week­end. Ans­ley leaves for camp tomor­row and I must admit I am kinda sad. I’m gonna miss her. But I have enough CHA projects to keep me busy as well as edit­ing the man­u­script for my book… so excit­ing to see some of it in print. It is all...

It’s Christmas In July…

Start­ing today through the end of July my ever so pop­u­lar “12 Days of Christ­mas Work­shop” will be $14.95. That is a $5. dis­count. So… if you were think­ing about get­ting a jump start on some hol­i­day gift mak­ing now is the time to start. There are a total of 15 tuto­ri­als. Some projects come with a tem­plate to make the cre­ative process a bit eas­ier.

Webster’s Pages…

I am so happy, I can finally tell you all my news… I am now part of the Webster’s Pages Design Team. I was lucky enough to have Webster’s Pages as a book spon­sor and now get to be part of their amaz­ing team. If you are not famil­iar with their prod­ucts you really need to check them out here. Their prod­ucts, color schemes and designs are incredible. Today, I cre­ated this brooch using the trim and lace they debuted at CHA-W 2009. It is their Ivory and Cream, Coco Ruf­fle, Spring Green Lat­tice and Turquoise Petite. I am going to attach...

Happy July 4th everyone…

My daugh­ter Terri and her fiance Laren are cer­tainly start­ing the 4th off with a bang… and this is the rea­son why.… Terri and Laren are now the proud par­ents of a seven week old Eng­lish Bull­dog puppy named Lola. And let me just say Lola has every­one hopping. It seems all she wants to do is sleep in your arms and if not she lets you know it with a very loud cry. I received a phone call this morn­ing at 3 a.m. from Terri let­ting me know how per­fect and smart Lola is about going potty out­side. Oh and FYI… Terri lives on the 4th floor....

What a great day…

Yes­ter­day my niece Amanda arrived. I picked her up from the air­port at 10 a.m and we did not stop until 10 p.m. She will be going to col­lege in the fall so the  first stop was IKEA… lots of great fun there. Then she wanted to hit Mar­shalls as this girl can never have too many shoes. Then we ate lunch and headed over to Tar­get. Once we fin­ished there we came home and made this.… well it was more like Amanda not me… I just grabbed stuff for her to use. I think she cre­ated the cutest doll. Now to find a lit­tle glass plate for her to sit...

Home Sweet Home Class Underway…

First off… where did June go? I really want to know. I can­not believe it is already July 1st. My Amer­i­cana Work­shop is start­ing to wind down. Talk about fun. I had a great time shar­ing all those red, white and blue projects. My “Home Sweet Home” class started today. Every­one is under­way work­ing on today’s class assign­ment. Today’s class assign­ment fea­tures one of my favorite tech­niques. I love learn­ing new tech­niques. How about you? Also, I am the Guest Designer at Scrap-Diner for the next few weeks.

I’m not sure who…

is hav­ing more fun run­ning to the mail­box me or Made­lyn. Here are the two cards she has sent me so far. I think they are so cute. Made­lyn cre­ated these all by her­self with scrap­ping sup­plies I gave her. Not too bad for a nearly six year old (she might be read­ing so if I say 5 well… you know how that goes) I love her but­ter­flies… to me there is noth­ing cuter than kids art. I just love, love, love it. And then of course there are the hilar­i­ous top­ics of dis­cus­sion. Today’s card made me laugh out loud. Buster is our dog and...

Guess who is celebrating a Birthday…

On this day in 1942… inside this quaint lit­tle house in Salem, West Vir­ginia,  a lit­tle girl was born into the Childers family. She is the youngest of three kids. Grew up with the nick­name “Dickie”, dressed her kit­tens in doll clothes and pushed them in her doll car­riage for hours. She loved to roller skate, draw, color and play outside. After High School she went to Beauty School… found out she mar­ried Santa Claus and well… the rest is history. Happy Birth­day, Mom. I hope your day is great! I...

Summer Pen Pal…

Do you have one? I do and it is my 5 year old, no excuse me my almost 6 year old sweet lit­tle niece Madelyn. While I was down for my sweet niece Amanda’s High School Grad­u­a­tion (yes, lots of girls in the fam­ily… 5 to 1 poor Brit­tain) Made­lyn and I decided we would be sum­mer pen pals. So each week we send each other a hand­made card. At first I kinda freaked because I feel like I have to make over the top cards com­plete with machine stitch­ing, ink­ing, glit­ter and all the other things I think I have to do but then I came to my...
