I continued to work on card kits that I had bought at Danica's in Hermiston. They are fun to do because I don't have to think. All the creativity was done before I bought the kits.
I also had our book club meeting. We read The Guernsy Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. We all enjoyed it!!
I just had an order for a special Christmas card. I can't wait to start. I love challenges.
Have a good evening.

Busy day yesterday. Went to Portland to do a little shopping. We ended up at the new Ikea store. Very nice but a little overwhelming for me.

I splurged and bought The Slice & all the cartridges at Danicas in Hermiston. I also bought a Bind-It-All so that I can make books. I can't wait until I get them. I'm a sucker for new gadgets!!! I didn't get any stamping done but will work on some projects today.

The best news of the day for me is that I am basically done with Christmas shopping!!! Such a load off my shoulders!!! Yippee!!

Obviously I'm not going to have to buy that extra gift as no one in my family has posted!!! No surprise there!!

I worked on Ronda kits from Danica's. Very nice people at this stamping store. Sometimes when I need a break from creating new stuff, I turn to the kits I've bought. Ronda is so creative and they are all so different. The only one I can't figure out is a cute teddy bear sticker card that you pull up and it shows his feet. Just can't figure out how to put it together. Next time I'm up at Danica's I'll have Miss Ronda show me how!!

That's all for now!

My Final Christmas Card

Here's the final Christmas card. I may add a few more rhinestones here and there but basically this is what it is going to look like. It takes time to make that final special card that you are going to mass produce. If it's a one-of-a- kind then I do whatever I like but, if I'm going to make a lot of the same card, I try not to over do to save my sanity. I don't know if anyone else does that but I have to. Otherwise my poor household pays the consequences for my stress & bad humor!!

I gave this blog addy to all my family. Only heard from two of them and they didn't leave a post sooooooooo there will be an extra Christmas present under the tree for the first member of my immediate family that posts a comment!!! We'll see who really reads this!!

And welcome to my friend Char. Sisters of the heart lady!!!

Christmas Cards

I am posting a picture my Christmas card. So far it is a work in progress. I don't want it too detailed because of having to duplicate so many times. Plus if you add any large embellishments, you have to pay extra postage. So I'm trying to keep them flatter!!!

I am still cleaning and organizing my craft room. Keeping it organized is a never ending job!! I just can't seem to work in chaos!! A major part of "creating" is organization!!

Lazy Day

I'm spending cleaning up my craftroom today. Those Christmas bags created quite a mess!! Later this week, I'll start on my Christmas cards. I have all the parts ready to go so it won't take long.
I'm trying to decide if I can live without The Slice or not. Being able to cut diecuts using scraps of paper would be very cool!!! Hmmmmmmmmmm, can't decide.
I'm also adding a picture of my craftin' kitty, Lucy. She loves to sit on her perch when I work and watch, sleep or look outside. She's the greatest!!

Christmas Bags

I finally finished my Christmas Bags project. I am selling them in sets of three (small, medium & large). They all match and have matching tags. This was time consuming but so much fun!! I am giving one large bag to all my customers and then will have the sets for sale.
