Happy Wednesday

Greetings from Ponca City, Oklahoma!  I am here with the family for several days to visit Ken's parents.  Hope to get caught up on computer work.  Lord knows I need to! 

No worries – my parents will be at my house collecting the Cards for Kate.  They are coming in so fast now – amazing.

Thought I would share a few random things.  You know me – I can be very random. :)

First, I noticed that Stamp Your Art Out in Cincinnati is having the CUTEST kids class.  I thought I would share the info here in case anyone is interested.  It is the Crafty Kids Camp on Saturday, October 3 from 2:30-4:30pm.  Should be fun.  For kids 8 and up and it is only $15 with all supplies provided.  (I am not teaching it.  Call 513-793-4558 if you are interested.)  Check out this cute project they will make… click to see it bigger.

Oct 09 Crafty Kids Camp

Thought I would share some fun things from 2Peas this mid-month… 

  • Love THIS page from Shannon.  Her little guy looks so much like Colin here… and I love the owl she used.
  • Look at THESE cute Halloween bags.  Love them!
  • I have on word for THIS page by Nichol: Wowsers.
  • Oh my word, THIS makes me want a baby girl.  (In 5 years.)
  • Another stunning one HERE.  Wow.

I also did a few things for 2Peas this mid-month.  First, here is a warm card I did with alcohol inks.  I first stamped that background with embossing ink and heat embossed white on glossy white paper.  I then applied lots of alcohol ink.  After drying, I lightly sanded to reveal the background even more.  For more info on the project, click HERE.

Next up is a package of candy I made for Colin.  Just something fun to do – I gave this to him on his first day of school.  Click HERE for more information…

As for TV… I watch The Good Wife last night.  I liked it.  The cast is great – may want to check it out.

Off to sleep.  I love sleep and miss it dearly.  In fact, I have been talking about taking up a new hobby.  (Since my hobby is my job, really.)  I told Ken I think napping would be a great hobby.  Inexpensive, right?  I started my new hobby today with a 2 hour nap this afternoon. :)

Night!

    Thanks for sharing your designs. I loved your warm card so much from class, I picked up all the products to make it. Going to get the stamp at some point.

    Napping…I could so use a dalily nap. I am really happy you are finding time with family and a few naps. Oldest DD is getting up at 5:30 am to get ready for school. I am trying to adjust to this new wake up time:( She is age 9 and has to catch the jr high bus.

    Enjoy your stay.
