Cousin Day & Gift Card Holder

We had Cousin Day, on Sunday, and had a lot of fun! The boys so enjoy spending time with their cousins. They wanted to watch Bob's Big Adventure (in 3-D) . . . don't they all just look too cute, sitting there with their 3-D glasses on?! Theresa, Bruce, Tammy, and Grandmere all had fun at the Chiefs game . . . even though they lost!

For those of you that attended the October workshop . . . remember the Christmas Gift Card Holder we made? We're celebrating a friend's birthday tomorrow and we needed a gift card holder . . . so
I changed it up a bit and made it for a birthday!

Jeri, my upline, is having a downline meeting at her house next month and we're also having a card swap! WAHOO! It's so much fun to card swap . . . it's just like a cookie exchange, but with cards! Here's my card swap (the "snow" card below) . . . we have to make 10-12 cards. I can't wait to see all the cards I come home with!

For those of you coming to the November workshop . . . we're using the same card layout, but using a different stamp set. Stay tuned . . . for the rest of the projects! I think you girls are going to like 'em! :o) I'll give you a hint . . . it has something to do with the holiday next month?!

Thanks for stopping by my craft room!

Craft Show

I had purchased a booth at St. Joseph's church Craft Bazaar . . . well, the craft show was yesterday and I have to say that with Theresa & Jenny's help . . . it was a success! We had alot of fun and met some great ladies!

We had two drawings: one for a stamp set and one for a free class. The winners are:
Stamp Set: Sara C. (Overland Park, KS)
Class: Cindy H. (Olathe, KS)

We were across the aisle from the nicest gal . . . Jennifer Goode. She has the cutest decorative gourds! Here's a link to her blog and Etsy shop . . . these 'lil gourds are
irresistible . . . Theresa, Jenny, and I all bought one! :o) We were giving Jennifer alot of flack, because it seemed that whenever someone would purchase a gourd . . . up would pop a NEW gourd that we'd not seen. I still swear that she had a secret stash somewhere!

We're having Cousin Day today . . . Theresa's boys are coming over in a bit, so that she and Bruce can go to the Chiefs football game today. The boys are SO excited that their cousins are coming over today!

Here's a picture of Jenny demonstrating the free Make & Take, it was a little gift tag. The three of us really did have a great time and enjoyed meeting all the ladies that stopped by the booth.

Getting ready for Craft Bazaar

I got up early, just as I do everyday.
The only difference? Today is

I'm making 'lil projects for Theresa and Jenny to do.
So they have things to create tomorrow and won't snooze.

I've gotta keep busy, so I've gotta go . . . it's crafting time.
Hopefully next week at the Craft Bazaar, I bring home
more than a dime!

Okay . . . I'm taking a poll. If you saw this at a craft show, how much would you buy it for?

I hope you have a great day today! Thanks for stopping by my craft room!

October Workshop

I was hoping to post this sooner, but time has so gotten away from me . . . we celebrated Terry's birthday last night and then tonight, we celebrated our eighth wedding anniversary. :o) We did a combo dinner (birthday and anniversary), as we went to Red Lobster with Gary (Terry's brother) and the boys last night. Here's a picture on our wedding day . . . gosh don't we look young!?

For those of you planning on attending the October Workshop, here is the photo of what you'll be making! I know the Tempting Turquoise color is a stretch for me . . . but I just LOVE that and the Certainly Celery colors together!

I figured that it's never too early to make a Christmas Card Holder . . . right? Walmart has started putting Christmas decorations out, so why can't we start our Christmas crafting?! Besides, this will give you a couple months to make 'em . . . if you wish to give them to your loved ones. ;o)

Be sure to RSVP, via e-mail . . . if you're planning on attending!

Halloween Sweet Treats Card

Here's a little sneak peak, for the ones coming to the October workshop (October 14th & October 16th) . . . here is one of your projects!

When Stampin' Up! let demonstrators get a sneak peek at the new Holiday Mini catalog, I was fascinated by the Sweet Centers stamp set. I thought it was such a novel idea to incorporate candy in a card! Then when I found out that the Sweet Treat cups had adhesive that required they be affixed to the card? Oh no! All my hard work would have to be destroyed to get at that candy. I DON'T THINK SO! So, I went out on the Internet and found Michael Funke's blog (yes, an actual guy demonstrator) that made these Halloween cards and included the "pull" on it, to get to the candy. Once I'd seen this . . . I ordered the Sweet Treat Cups immediately!

I'm going to make a bunch of these, this weekend, to give to teachers and to sell at the Craft Bazaar too.

For those of you staying at Embassy Suites this weekend . . . we only have FOUR MORE DAYS! WAHOO!

Thanks for stopping by my craft room!
