Good Morning Stampers,

Though right now not sure what's so good about it. I guess if you like snow then your excited about this weather.. Cody and Tasha are suppose to come home this afternoon. Not sure just what they are doing yet. I think they should stay put! I have the radio on listening for cancellations.

Have a safe day out there....

Good Morning Stampers,

Feeling creative today? My "special place" is all cleaned :) I spent a good part of yesterday cleaning and rearranging. Hopefully when I want something I will be able to find it. My oh my how things accumulate, do you have this problem too?

Today's project is using the Love You Much set. A nice centerpiece. The container is one that I had, just added raffia, spanish moss. The "flowers" are on sucker sticks. Yorkie and nuggets are inside each "flower". I really like how this turned out. If you click on the pic you will get a better look at the details...

Now today I need to put my creative cap on and get busy. I have a very busy couple of weeks ahead of me.
Cody and Tasha are coming home tomorrow and now I hear there is suppose to be a snowstorm grrr... Something for me to worry about!!
Have a nice day and thanks for stopping by.

Good Morning,

I'm having one of those heat wave moments (hours) :(

Ohhh it is so nice to see that sunshine.

Yesterday I made up a CUPCAKE KIT. I noticed these on a few websites not sure who came up with the first one. I used the Love You Much #113756 stamp set Scallop circle punch 1 1/4" circle and 3/4" circle punches. Toothpicks and cupcake papers. So cute! Made me want to bake some cupcakes just to display.
After my heat wave ends I really need to straighten up my stamp room. Soon we will not be able to move in here. I'm running out of space..
Hmmm... wonder what I can create today. Check back tomorrow to find out.
Have a great day
