It's Offical !!Spring is here!

The dandelions are in full bloom. I made these tags for a swap and they make me smile because it's been a long tough winter and I'm ready for spring.
I offically became a Stampin up demonstrator and I just recieved my kit yesterday and I'm in Stampin heaven. I'm still wading through all the information, and as soon as I sort it out I'm hoping to get a web site. In the mean time if you need anything I'd love to help. My goal is to put together a card work shop in the next few weeks. I'm really excited about this and I hope I can make a go of it. I know it will take alot of hard work. But I think it can be rewarding. Happy Stampin!

Missed you

It has been awhile since I have posted a blog. I'm having serious issues with my laptop and have resorted back to my desktop. Both are so slow. The area we live in doesn't have DSL so right now I have to rely on Dial up (ugh).Other than that I have been keeping myself busy. I'm still looking for o job and I worked a one day temp job this week. It was at a company I temped at before and I was having so much fun seeing old faces. Even though I didn't have much to do I enjoyed being out among people. I hope they have me return again sometime. My good friend Melissa and I are trying to get a new group started in our area( and one of the first challenges was to do a one page layout about yourself. This is what I posted. Do you know how hard it is to find 4 pictures that you just don't absolutly hate! I would love it if you would drop by and consider joining us, even if you don't live locally, We hope to have some fun cjhallenges and swaps.
I have taken the plunge and decided to become a Stampin up Demonstrator. I sent my paperwork in Tuesday and i'm excited about getting started. I thank Mandy for all of her help and I have learned so much from her. I really enjoy her classes and the card club. Mandy won a trip for her and her family to Hawaii for a stampin up convention, they leave tomorrow. Have a good trip Mandy and bring back some great new ideas.
Sring has finally decided to peek it's head out and the trees are strting to put and I noticed my tiger lillies are coming up. Spring and fall are my favorite times of year. I love have the windows open and the clean breeze coming in and listening to the sounds of the birds.
Well thanks for listening to me ramble and happy scrappin.

With my own hands

I'm posting this again to see if I can get anymore takers. I only have one. Come on ladies, come have som fun with me

The first five people to leave a comment on this post will receive something hand made by me, however there are some limitations
1. I make no guarantee that you will like what I make.
2. What I create will be just for you.
3. It will be done this year (might take a while but I promise in 2009)
4. You have not clue what it is going to be, a photo, something I have craftily put together, or sewn. I may bake something and mail it you...the possibilities are endless
5. I reserve the right to do something extremely strange. It may blow your mind!

Here is the catch, if you choose to do this. You must post this on your blog and be ready to make something for five people too. This will be fun! When you receive the fabulous item I make you, you must post a picture of it on your blog and rave about it for all to see.

Ready, Set GO!

An Inanimate Object

I belong to a yahoo group and of of the things they have is a use it up challenge every month. this is where you create project with just the materials you have on hand. The first challenge this month was to create a lay out of an inanimate object. I walked around my house for days and rack my brain until it hurt. Finally I came up with this lay out. It was a once in a lifetime trip that we took. We spent a month cruising the rivers of Europe from Austria, Germany and The Netherlands.
It's been pretty busy around here working on new challenges,going to classes with Stampin Up Demonstrator Mandy, catching up on swaps and I've just become a moderator of a group and my good friend Melissa and I are starting a local group for scrappers.
If you know anyone in the Metro St. Louis area have them take a look and join us. Well my house has been sadly neglected so I had better get busy. Happy Scrappin.
