Photo Cards

I am getting ready for a craft show next weekend. My sweetheart has taken some of the best butterfly pictures I've ever seen, so I thought I'd make up some note cards. Hope everyone else likes them as much as I do ;) If not, I'll have to be sending lots of hand written notes. Back to the job at hand...

Great Weekend

It was a long weekend for my school kid. She stayed up way too late Thursday night making me a birthday card. She even composed a poem for me as she looked to Robert Service's poetry for inspiration. She's a keeper.

Friday was my day. My dd even helped organize my scrapbook room. We got all of the cardstock paper sorted and stacked neatly. And lots of the patterned paper sorted by categories. There's still lots to do about organizing, but that one thing was the top of my list. Now if I can just keep at it!

My mom came in from "far left Texas" as my sweetie calls it. She was here Saturday and Sunday. There never seems to be enough time, but we did enjoy our time. DD has a birthday next week, so we did a double celebration on Saturday.

Now the long weekend is over and it's back to the grind. Maybe I'll be able to crank out more scrapbooking now that I can find the paper.

See ya soon!

Stamped Calendar

I finally finished one of the desk calenders tonight. I stamped, embossed and painted unique Texas images, sometimes added bling or brads, matted the image, added a printed monthly calender and used the bind-it-all to create a flip desk calendar. I purchased an acrylic clear easel for display purposes.

My plan was to give it to my mother for a Christmas gift, but I loved it it so much I didn't want to wait. So, I added three more pages for 2008 and gave it to her early. I know she will enjoy it every day.
