Just a little FYI…

Sep 26, 2009

I will not be blog­ging for sev­er­al weeks and thought I would give you the heads up as to why. To make a long sto­ry short… for the past few years I thought I was lac­tose intol­er­ant. Any­time I drank milk my stom­ach would hurt so I just took myself off all dairy and did­n’t have any­more issues. Well in April the Dr. and I thought I had acid reflux… took Nex­i­um and all was bet­ter. Sun­day I had some ter­ri­ble stom­ach pains that last­ed all night but went away. Tues­day evening BAM I was hit with some stom­ach and back pain that would not let up so I went to the ER and found out I had gall­stones and a very unhap­py gall­blad­der. Wednes­day I was in a hos­pi­tal room being pumped full...

Another this and that post…

Sep 15, 2009

First we had a great week­end. Cen­ten­ni­al High School won their Home­com­ing game… which is always nice. And Ans­ley had a great time at the dance. I think she and her date Alex looked so adorable. Now to my scrap­py world… my All Hal­low’s Eve online work­shop start­ed yes­ter­day. The first project is up now and the sec­ond one will be avail­able tomor­row. A lit­tle reminder… today, the sec­ond project has been post­ed in my Home­spun Inspi­ra­tion online work­shop. If you reg­is­tered for this work­shop don’t for­get to check it out. And if you want to see more of Lot­tie, The Farmer’s Wife… go check out Jen­ni Bowl­in’s Design Team Blog. I have a step by step tuto­r­i­al on how to recre­ate Lot­tie. That’s about it on my end… today I’m gonna make some­thing...

So much going on…

Sep 5, 2009

Lots of cre­at­ing and prepar­ing going on in my scrap­room. I tell ya it looks like a bomb went off I have so many piles here and there but it is a good thing as it seems to be the only way and best way I know how to cre­ate. Here is a lit­tle run down of my cre­ative week… I fin­ished the sec­ond project for my “Home­spun Inspi­ra­tion” work­shop. Those that have reg­is­tered now have access to the sup­ply list. The project tuto­r­i­al will be post­ed on the 15th. Just about have my “All Hal­low’s Eve” work­shop ready to go. All the pho­tos have been tak­en and the tuto­ri­als have been writ­ten and sched­uled. Just tweak­ing a few things here and there. And this is excit­ing, I will be teach­ing at Crop-Paper-Scis­sors in...

Make Art…

Sep 2, 2009

So do you wish you could stamp like Wendy Vec­chi as much as I do? Well it just got a lot eas­i­er for me. I had a great mail day yes­ter­day because Wendy sent me a copy of her new book “Make Art, Stu­dio 490 Style”. Let me tell ya… this book will nev­er leave my work­sta­tion and I am not kid­ding! Behind this cov­er con­tains loads and loads of  incred­i­ble infor­ma­tion. Read­ing Wendy’s book is kin­da like being able to pick her brain. You know when you look at her incred­i­ble cre­ations and think to your­self… who’s prod­uct is this, how did she do that… what did she use here.… well it is all inside. Wendy lists her favorite sup­plies (the basics and the extras) tips, stamp stuff, basic info and has approx­i­mate­ly...
