Spiderman Birthday

Got a call from a friend last weekend who was looking for a birthday invitation.
I did a little 'pinterest research' and found these three cards I liked:

From these I came up with my own invite for
sweet Harry Banks:

Happy Birthday Harry.

Stamp A Stack - card 1

So I hosted a Stamp A Stack the last weekend in february.
This was the first card that I found that I wanted to CASE somehow.
Here is what I came up with:
And here is the card my mom made based on my example above:
My mom always says, "I am not creative." ha!

And here is the card my 16 year old daughter made:

These creative women are so inspiring!!
love doing this.

Simon Says Stamp!

Every once in a while I get an itch for something that is not Stampin Up!...
and I really, really wanted this
Can't you see why???

One of my girlfriends was diagnosed with breast cancer. She is going through so much so I made her this card, but with a real ribbon, and sent it to her.
Do you know what I hate?
How easily people use the word 'hate'
and cancer.

non traditional baby card

so this little one's mama
is one very outdoorsy lady.
so i figured what would be cuter than a rattle?
in a place we live called Winter Park?
with a little piece of twine on it.

***and help me out bloggers...
why are my pictures always so yellow???? 
is it the type of bulbs i have in my photo box?

I've been itching to blog.
itching to craft.
itching to share.

So, here I am. back again.  Thinking I may need to rethink how i blog. why i blog and who i blog for.
I need to figure out a few things with blogging and crafting and why i do them.
and instead of wasting time and journaling about these things while my blog sits lonely and bored, i should just share my thoughts with you.
because you probably go through this process yourself from time to time.  and you probably can relate, in one form or another.  or so i would think.

so here i sit.  with thoughts and ideas all around me.
and craft supplies.
stampin' up! and project life.
and technology...

now to merge them in some way.
while i raise two teenagers and work two jobs and be a good wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend.
and did i mention my teens are now home schooled...
so needless to say, i am busy.
but so are you.
and we are all sharing the same amount of hours in the day.
and some of my favorite blogs are folks who seem to have more on their plate than i do...
ahem... erica cerwin at pink buckaroo.  she has three (count them...3) little girls, is a full time teacher and manages to have an awesome blog and stampin up business.
so i have no excuse.

today i begin again.

NEW Color Chart

I still have all the items
cleaned out
and ready to post on here
S A L E.

I just need to take photos and get it posted.

but, in the mean time…
i was tired of not having a good color chart to look at,
since the color refresh.

so, i made my own.

if you right click on the picture, you can save it to your desktop then print it on white card stock.

I used the idea of the old Stampin'Up! one that was made with the circles of color
and added the names of each color.
