What a week!!!

This week I'll be busy, busy, busy! I am a procrastinator, and I wait til the last minute to do my taxes, most of the time I get an extention, the wierd part about that is I always get money back. I just hate doing taxes!

This weekend I'm vending at a crop in Cave City, KY, I'm looking forward to that. I haven't figured out everything to bring with me yet, but my husband made some spinner albums out of wood for me to decorate. Several people who saw mine wanted me to make them one, it's bigger than most I have seen, I made mine 5" x 5 1/4". It has a lazy susan attached to the bottom so it spins with felt dots so it does not scratch what you sit it on. I sell the kit which includes the base, a ball to put on top after you put the album on, the wire to use with your bind-it-all and instructions. The cost kit is $25 which includes shipping, if you are local the cost is $20.00. I'll be taking about 10 of them with me to the crop this weekend, and I hope I sell out. If you click on the picture to the left side, it will take you to my website where I sell them.

Good Friday

I am taking today off to go to Nashville and have fun with my daughter and friends, we are going to eat at Joe's Crab Shack, we've went once before and they have the best seafood.
I've been asked by my friend Patricia to let you all know she is having a sale at www.papertemptress, The touch papers at PaperTemptress are the perfect paper for the perfect card and the whole month of April they are on sale for 25% off the regular price, also the entire leather line is 40% off, she just sent me some leather paper and it is yummy, I'll be making Fathers Day Cards with it, and will get them posted next week. I also got some of her white cardstock, it is so thick and stamps so smoothly, I really thing I'm going to love using this for any stamping and coloring I do anymore. Be sure and check out her sale, if you like the look of her on-line images, you'll really like the paper IRL.

Happy Monday

I got a couple of pictures from Nancy that used one of my files to make some cards and I wanted to share them, the Onsie file I had offered free for a week, now it is on sale at Paperthreads for $2.99, click on the left on the onsie picture to be directed to Paperthreads.

I also made a file for a wineglass lampshade, and decorated it, I'm posting the tutorial for making it on sometime this week also you'll get a free file for the lampshade there, be sure to check it out. I'm not really sure I like the idea of the candle under paper, even though it's only sticking over the glass a little, so I found some tealights that were battery operated at our dollar store and used them, much safer.

Have a great day,

Baby Cards

I've got so much stuff going on, I'm trying to double dip the majority of my stuff, even triple, what this means is, I'm making files for cards, I'm making these cards to sell at craft shows. I'm offering one of those cards as a free file, hurry it won't be free forever. I worked on my bunny card and my 3 baby cards yesterday, so I got a lot done, I'm also guest designer on www.papertemptress once or twice a month (trying to see how much I can do) and I'm working on a wineglass lampshade made out of her vellum (it is so nice and heavy), I'll let you know when that is posted since the file will be free on her website. Here are 2 of my other Cards I made yesterday, they will be put at paperthreads when they are finished for $2.99 each.
