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...

A short but good one…

Jan 14, 2009

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...

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...
