Happy Saturday!

Happy Saturday to all! I can't believe it is December 4th and only 21 days until Christmas day. I have been very busy working on my products for Etsy and Heart and Hands but I am going to have to stop soon for my personal Christmas stuff - shopping, wrapping, cooking, cleaning, etc.

Before I do, I want to wrap up some cards I had started so they will be available as soon as the holidays are over and our attention is directed back to normal life.......the card I am posting today is perfect for so many occasions and emotions.

Simply reading "Heartfelt" it is an appropriate card for Thank You, I Love You, I Miss You, Sympathy or many other messages.

Hope you are having an enjoyable December and gearing up for a great new year!

Don't forget to check out my Etsy and Heart and Hands store links......

Church Babies on Etsy....

Well the bad news is that I have Shingles (boo)! How I managed to come down with this I have no idea.....the good news is that I am house bound since I can only wear very loose sweats and my jammies so I am getting a lot of crafting done for Etsy and Heart and Hands!

I completed seven sets of Church babies and got them packaged this afternoon. Four sets are on Etsy.....please go check them out (you will find the link at the right).

Tomorrow I am going to do some stamping and possibly get some more Artsy Aprons done (you can also find a few of them on Etsy and hopefully more to come....).

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving weekend and Monday back to real life!

Magical Tags to wind up a magical weekend....

I wanted to post these tags to wind up a magical weekend.

We really enjoyed our Thanksgiving weekend by first having our 20 year old arrive safely home on Tuesday and enjoying her company. The two of us completed 30 Jewelry bags (pictured) for me to put in Heart and Hands and on my Etsy store (see both links on the right). We caught up on Vampire Diaries using Amazon's Video On Demand, a great way to catch any current TV Series or Movies that you have missed.

On Thursday morning we traveled to Indianapolis and ate a wonderful meal with my hubby's Aunt, Sister, Cousins, and Niece's family. A great day with family!

Thursday night, Friday and Saturday morning were spent at the Hilton in downtown Indy on the Circle including the tree lighting, great shopping at the Circle Centre mall, catching up with some college friends (thanks to Facebook), an awesome dinner at St. Elmo's (the best shrimp cocktail in the world!), and a room with a beautiful view.

It was a great way to begin the Christmas season. Happy Holidays to all!!

Wow! I have not been here in a while......I had lots of fun company in October including family members and friends. It was a whirlwind of activity, but I am very thankful to have wonderful family and friends. One of my visitors was Roxanne, my daughters only babysitter outside of family when she was very young (she is 20 now which is hard to fathom). She inspired me in my card creations and I have posted my newest creation thanks to her input and assistance.

These "Bottle Greetings" will be featured in my Etsy Store and in Heart and Hands on Main Street in Historic Downtown Franklin, TN.

Swap Card Done!!

Happy Tuesday! I finished my swap cards for my local swap group just now and couldn't wait to share it. My goal was to create a halloween/fall card that would be used in October and November - not just Halloween.....I think I accomplished that.

Don't forget to visit my Etsy store (see the links on the right) and hopefully I will have some new very special surprises for your favorite doggy pal in my store very soon.....keep checking!

Guestbook on my blog........

I just added a guestbook to my Blog page.....I am becoming so internet savvy (actually not true, the electronic world is becoming more push-button)! Anyway, please go to my blog, page down to the bottom and sign my guestbook - fun times!

It has rained here since Wednesday and it is supposed to rain through next week. Blah! One of my friends posted a comment on Facebook stating that "we had moved to Seattle and no one told us".......we just do not get this much rain here. It smells moldy outside, ewwie!

Til later,

Tuesday already.....

These long weekends really mess me up. It is already Tuesday and the week will go really fast. I can't do much stamping this week as I need to get some things done for my hubby's consulting business, but I did get a card done yesterday afternoon. It was my first attempt at a vintage look and I really enjoyed putting it together! I got the basic idea off of Splitcoaststampers but added A LOT of my own touches - each element of the card has something extra done to was FUN!

Well back to working on hubby's stuff - oh yeah, and getting ready for the "True Blood" season finale.......planning an awesome meal and some special decorations for the party!!

Have a great week!

Happy Labor Day!

I hope everyone is having a very relaxing day! John is off playing golf and I am stamping and getting ready to go shopping. I have started reading the "Sookie Stackhouse" series and I am having trouble resisting sitting and reading all afternoon. We took a walk before he left to golf and it is just too hot outside to do anything in the yard! I know my Michigan friends and family are going to enjoy the end of summer heat this week, but those of us in the south are sorry that our cool weather has left for a while......

I just finished another card stamped from my new Clear Dollar Stamps and I wanted to get it posted while I had a few is a Thank You type of card with a cute birdhouse theme and message. I hope you enjoy it!

Have a great remainder of your holiday weekend!

Candy Bar Greetings

I had a very productive day finishing 10 different candy bar greetings (4 of each for a total of 40 bars, yes I am tired). They will go in Heart and Hands tomorrow. Heart and Hands is the adorable gift shop that my products are in on Main Street in historic downtown Franklin, Tennessee.

Each candy bar has a different greeting and I have put pictures of a few on the blog tonight. Your are welcome to use my ideas if you stamp but PLEASE do not sell them if you copy. Personal use is fine.....

I will put a link to the Heart and Hands website in My Links tonight. Please visit the site. The girls have worked very hard on it and in fact it was just updated this week. It is lovely. If you have questions about any of the stamps or papers on the candy bars just let me know.......

My First Blog, ever......

Well I am not sure why I feel compelled to blog but I do........hopefully this blogspot will become a way for me to share my arts with my friends and family without boring my less intimate friendships on Facebook with all that I do. You will be able to come here if you REALLY want to know more - but not in a creepy way - haha! I think I will start by sharing a link to a friends new business (gotta support us work from home, creative type girls). Her website is not complete and the first page is still an edit type page so just blast through it and go to her home page. She makes great dog goodies and dog food........I make my own also but you can't buy it (made a huge batch tonight and put it the freezer), so check out her site and I wish Jennifer good luck! Just go to my links and enjoy.........
