Thoughts For Thursday: Take a Chance

Thoughts For Thursday: Take a Chance

“Take a chance! All life is a chance. The man who goes the furthest is generally the one who is willing to do and dare.” – Dale Carnegie “ I firmly believe that if you follow a path that interests you, not to the exclusion of love, sensitivity, and cooperation with others, but with the strength of conviction that you can move others by your own efforts, and do not make success or failure the criteria by which you live,…

Buried In Bind It All Products

I am swamped in Bind It All Products from Zutter Innovative… YIKES!!!! (This little machine is the coolest thing!!! Look how tiny it is!!) I got my second shipment of product for the big sale I ‘ve been holding… We are completely sold out of chipboard covers already (and so is the manufacturer until 2nd week in Oct)…. They are also out of 3/8″ black wires until who knows when… So I’m trying to figure out substitutions for the assortments…

K is for Kaylee

K is for Kaylee

I made this pot o’ pencils (and pens) for my friend’s little girl who turned 11 today. She loves to write and draw (and so do her brothers), so I figured that they wouldn’t steal her cute flowery pens and pencils and it would make a great addition to her desk in her lavendar room. 🙂 This was very simple to do. I purchased a tin pot and two bunches of flowers (97 c each) and some white kidney or…

Nice Legs, Good Kisser

Another Oldie But Goodie….. My parents ROCK! These are some pics from a visit a few years ago. We went up American Fork Canyon to see the fall colors and took some photos along the way. I wish I could remember what the paper is… I had scraps of it in a bin that I wanted to use up…. I know I picked it up at Pebbles In My Pocket a while back…. The ribbon is generic from WMart and…

” No kind action ever stops with itself. One kind action leads to another. Good example is followed.

South Dakota Badlands

South Dakota Badlands

This is just a fun super quick layout that I did of a trip to South Dakota (I made the layout a while back.) I used my old Sizzix dies to cut the letters. I wanted to do some layouts without stamping. I probably should dress these up a bit…. I was trying to do the whole non matted photo layout… not sure I like photos without mats….. Extra pictures that I didn’t know what to do with….. so I…

Until We Meet Again….

Until We Meet Again….

Today was a difficult day. I attended the funeral of my sweet friend, Rebecca Rae (Christoffersen) Stinson. It was especially difficult because it was the first funeral of a “friend” close to my age. The doctors are not sure why she died yet. Hopefully we will find out soon. Her sister, Judy, wrote one of the best “Life Sketches” that I have ever heard. Judy’s sketch made me laugh and cry and remember the good times we all had with…

Midweek Blog Candy Winners

It actually only took us 4 hrs and about 40 minutes to clean the room. It didn’t look as bad in the one before pic…. oh man, you didn’t see that nothing was in order and that I didn’t know what I had tucked away in miscellaneous totes and drawers. Thankfully Brent is a good work master… I had pulled everything out and just got overwhelmed with the piles of stuff. He was good at crackin the whip to make…

A Question of Ink…

A Question of Ink…

Several people have asked me in the comments and via private email about the storage piece that I have my stamp pads in. Here’s the scoop:The stamp pads are stored in an InkStak custom built to fit CTMH or SU! stamp pads by my husband, Brent which we sell through our store, Stamper Storage. InkStaks can be customized by adding additional rows or adding or deleting columns. InkStaks can be easily wall mounted (we include instructions & hardware) or set…
