Our day is looking spectacular here in Wi today. Looking forward to sunshine…not that we will see much of it as we get things together for the Collinsville show. 

I love polka dots ! The glasses on today’s card are from the brother machine and cut out of glitter paper.   Stamp Used: E264 (spec) tacular day!

Enjoy your day!

good evening! Tonight’s card is a great wedding card. We actually have two stamps that are very similar. One is for wedding and the other for anniversary. The difference is just one word- life and year. 

Stamp Used: G333 Beautiful life

It’s Friday!

Good Evening! We continue to make stamps and work on the house.  Same old stuff!

We are hoping to take the weekend off of stamp making and work on the projects around the house.  We purchased a toilet and sink to replace the old ones. I want to get all the crown molding up in the dining room & powder bath. I would like to spray paint an old fan silver. It is currently gold. if it looks good then it won’t need to be replaced. And I would like to get the mudroom painted! It’s a pretty long list but I think we can do it :)

The fireworks are booming tonight!  Have a great 4th of July.

I’m liking the long daisy. It is a new stamp. I like its versatility.  Stamps Used in today’s card:  C283 need a hug?; Cc73 Double Grass (I’m loving this new stamp too!); EE56 KB’s Long Daisy, lg; C95 Flowers to cheer 

Thankful for our freedom!

Thursday Evening

July 2, 2015

We’ve accomplished a lot today !  We have all the convention “pulled” that means all the stamps we are going to make have had their ticket pulled. The ticket tells us all the information we need to make the stamp.  We have vulcanized 1/2 of them. We still have a long way to go but I see lots of progress. 

Kevin and Bruce (a friend of ours) have continued to build in the pantry/mudroom. I have to say it is coming out better than I could have imagined!! I have been admiring those barn doors on Pintrest and I’m getting one in the pantry/mudroom. so excited. I will post pictures when done :)

I made today’s card for a friend of mine that needs a little love sent her way!  Stamps Used: D300 Sending Love; EE56 KB’s Tall Daisy Lg; F196 Wishing Love.

The Long Weekend is about here!

I think I’ve finally convinced Karissa that the triple flag cards are pretty cool!  I love how she took a two line stamp and made it work in the triple flag.  And like how she wrapped the twine in the top flag.

Stamps Used:  D299 Trio Butterflies, D306 Thinking of you Smile, E275 Have a sweet day, F235 Triple Flag Banner, G140 Solid Dots

Hope your week is going good!

paper airplane love 2

Hello!  We arrived home from Minnesota last night around midnight. We had a great time in Bloomington.  You ladies made a lot of make n takes.  That makes me so happy!

We got all of the special orders out today so you can expect yours in a couple of days if you had a special order.  We still have have few internet orders we need to get out tomorrow, plus some store orders but we have a really good start on them. So I’m again happy!

I’ve gotten the house all vacuum, the laundry started (not any where near done but we got rain this afternoon and I LOVE to put clothes on the line so I stopped doing it.)  I’ve got the spare bedrooms all dusted, vacuumed, and picked up.  I plan to clean the bathrooms as soon as I’m done here :) Love getting things done.

Today’s card is a simple card with our J35 Live, Love,  & Laugh and EE52 the paper airplane.

Look what the brother machine cut out for Karissa!




Many of you may have heard about me talking about my malfunction on my demo brother machine.  My outline distance button quit working.  It’s a very important button.  I called brother and they told me to bring my machine to a sewing store in Green Bay and they would fix it!  Wow!  I was a little impressed.  Kevin not so much.  He said “I’ll be impressed if it really gets fixed!”  So I’ll keep you posted :)  The bathrooms are calling :)

Terrific Thursday

Good Evening! Another busy day here in Minnesota. Cabinets are mostly completed. We have one cabinet that is being a problem so we are contemplating how to fix it.  Mom is pretty happy!


Today’s card is an oldie but goodie. it’s another swing card but it has been made into a gift card holder! Enjoy!

Wacky Wednesday

ok, here is the last of the four make n takes that I’ve added!

We have almost gotten all the cabinets painted! it was a much bigger job than I thought but they look fantastic and Mom is so happy!  I will post a picture when completely done. Today we need to look for hardware and then the big job of putting the kitchen back together.  And Dad will be glad when all is back in order and his silverware is not on a chair and the coffee is not in the living room :)

Love & Kisses

Love & Kisses inside2

Good Tuesday Morning!  We had a fabulous day of painting yesterday.  Although if I would have known that my Mother had 45 cupboard/drawers/door… I might not have been so eager to paint them.  I have two coats of primer on all the bases and 28 of the fronts.  So we have a really good start.  So it’s another day of painting for me! :)

Here is another of our new Make n Takes.

Stamps Used:  G304 Swiss Dot; G165 KB’s Silphnium Lg; E203 KB’s Silphnium, Med;  AA11 Firefly; D310 Love, Kisses, Birthday Wishes; E145 Birthday Hold Dear
