Another Purse Picture

A few posts back I showed you the purse that my Aunt Patty and I made. Here is a picture of her purse.

We used the new fabric from the 2010 Holiday Mini Catalog. She liked the green fabric and I liked the red. I am still working on the flowers. The thread that I used for my flower really didn't look right so I had to go to plan B.

Here is a picture of mine again so you can see the difference. Her inside is what my outside looks like minus the ruffles. She did add pockets of course. The next purses we make will be with the new fabric from the 2011 Occasions Mini! Can't wait to get that in my hands!!

Some Family Pics

I don't usually share pictures of my family but I did have some cute ones that I will be making some My Digital Studio projects with and wanted to share. I will share the projects when they are finished.

This is my son Joshua. He is 6 and LOVES to "help" in the kitchen. Since I have all boys I will take all the help that I can get!

This is me with my son Joshua (in blue) and Owen (in red). My oldest is taking the picture and hubby is probably still eating. Every Christmas we visit this wonderful little restaurant for breakfast with Santa. They always have great antique decorations and yummy food. We have come to this same restaurant since I was Joshua's age so it has been a really long time and I have wonderful memories of all my family members here. That is really one of the reasons that I love Christmas so much. The family traditions and celebrations of our Lord and Savior Jesus' birth.

I am truly blessed to have wonderful family, friends and customers. You have all been gifts to me each and every day of the year!

Gingerbread Goodies!

I know I have been gone for a wile, but I have been busy making cards, cookies and more! Here is a project that I made for a Club Member for Christmas. I am going to be changing them up for Valentine's Day and maybe adding some tea bags for Mother's Day.

I have seen these floating around the blogs. I did change mine up a little because I couldn't find the 16 ounce cups. I could only find 12 oz. cups so I made the boxes a little smaller. I will share the tutorial in my next few posts.

I used Real Red CS with Chocolate Chip and Early Expresso Ink. I also made a blue version of this with snow flakes but gave it away before I could take a picture of it. I hope that my friends liked them!

Happy Stampin,

Merry Christmas!

Hello Stampers,

I know it has been a while since my last post and I am sorry for that. After battling sickness after sickness and dealing with Birthday Parties, a visit from my Mom and her husband and all that life has for me, I am still alive!

I just want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas! I hope you are truly blessed with people who love you, good health and more!

As we visit with family and friends I hope that you take time to Thank God for the precious gift of Salvation that He has given us through His son Jesus! He is the reason for the season after all.

Check back soon...I have been busy!
