Up Dated Work Space



Back again!  I had some computer issues so I have not been able to do much of any thing.  How come it seems like just a few years ago computers were basic and a frugal item and now I don't know how we would live with out them...of course I am a bit of a tech geek.  

Since my laptop is back up and running I decided my web site needed a bunch of updates.  (Keep watching for more, it will take me a while to get it all in place.)   I took a look at the About me page (boy do I wish I was still as young as I was in that picture, it was not fun finding something more up to date.  I also noticed the pictures I had up of my work space looked nothing like what I have dome now.  I painted my room red probably about 5 plus years ago and in the pictures it was still purple.  I decided that was were I was going to start.  I have so many more new fun toys also! Lol

So if you would like to stop by my site and see where I work and how I store my things....Welcome!

Family Tree




On a non stamp related subject.  I have not had much time to stamp lately but I am really going to try to get to it today.  September is a very busy birthday month in our family and I am a bit behind already.  School has started and our schedule this year is a bit over whelming.  I wanted to share with you something I made earlier in the summer.  I have this section of wall in my entry way that is right next to the door.  The ceiling in there is vaulted to cover both floors so I had to have something on the wall.  I used to have a set of 3 pictures hanging there but if the door was shut too hard (remember I have 6 kids, 5 of which are boys) the pictures would fall, hit the stairs and break.  So I decided to make a vinyl wall art that would fill in the area.  My kids are growing up and branching out (lol).  2 are now married and we just delivered the 3rd to his 1st year of college. So I cut this tree out and placed the kids, wives & grand kids' names within the branches.  I love the way it turned out!

Back at it!



Yes, I am still alive!  I have been so busy this summer I am actually looking forward to school beginning so I can get back into a regular schedule.  I have been home maybe 2 weeks this summer so my stamps have been neglected.  When I did get home last week I had to prepare for a vinyl class I am teaching at our church next month (thought it might be nice to at least have an idea of what I am doing).  So I was determined to get my hand s a bit inky today.  This is one of my new favorite stamps sets.

Baby Duckies





I never have enough baby cards so usually when I make one I try to make a girl and boy version.  I have not been drawn to a baby set like this one in many years.  Since they offered the set and the framelits it was hard to pass up.

 
They are available separately or at a bundle price. Such an easy way to get great simple baby cards.  I used the Work of Art chevron to make my background.  I did have to use my Stamp-a-ma-jig to get things lined up.  I used the Retired set One in a Million for the word Baby.  That will be a set I am going to have problems letting go (along with a few other word sets)
If you noticed there is also a piercing template that goes with this set.   Which adds just that perfect extra touch.  
Another of my favorite products is the Thick Baker's Twine.  I am drawn to making cards in the colors I have. Lol
