Easter Time is here!

The new Stampin Up! Occasions Mini Catalog will be available on April 1 and you are going to love it. There is a bunch of new items in this catalog, INCLUDING an oval 'scalloped' punch and coordinating stamps. I have been hoping to see the oval, so I am VERY happy. ( does not take much more than a new punch or a new in-color to make me happy!) Best news of includes a few Easter and all occasion stamp sets. In view of the fact that Easter '09 is on April 12 this year, Stampin Up! is accepting the Easter stamp set orders earlier - starting on March 1 so we have time to make our Easter cards. I will be putting in an order that morning, SUNDAY MARCH 1, 2009, so please, email me what you want for your Easter cards from this Occasions Mini Catalog, and you'll have them in time for your Easter Card creations. If you are interested in getting any of these sets 'ASAP' let me know before Sunday, March 1st. They will be available during the entire month of March, & then while the Occasions Mini catalog runs - from April - March 30.

Everyday Joys!

I have been thinking about this for quite sometime, and have finally decided to make the commitment. Everyday there is something that I see that evokes an emotion and I want to capture these fleeting moments and put them in an album. Along the way, I want to share the pictures with you. I hope you enjoy these, and please, feel free to comment on them. It's a little warm-n-fuzzie when I know someone else has enjoyed my work. comments on the number of fur baby pictures...I DO have seven of the little darlings, and everyday, without fail, one of them has an "Oh isn't that cute" moment or two!! Enjoy!

And here I thought it would be Janice Gold who would be the spy...did you see the "Lady Geeks" exchanging looks tonight? I absolutely love this show, and am in a state of denial while it's off. The writer's strike almost killed me. It's a Tivo staple in our house. We had a marathon 24 a few years back to catch us up from the "first century" and when it was all over, it left me wanting more. I assume that is the object of the game. Now I have to wait until next Monday to see if the First Man dies or not. :( sigh.

Alaska...Here I Come!!'s O-F-F-C-I-A-L...I am on the Scrapbooking Cruise to Alaska. Another one of my "things-I-have-to-do-when-I-turn-50" is now a realization. Good thing I did not chronologically list by date everything I want to do and in what order I wanted to do them, because if I had, I would be WAY off on this one. And, it's even over my birthday. How 'bout that. YIPPEE...Oh My Crafts is sponsoring it and I even have a cabin mate...Carole...check out her's on my list of blogs to the left, too...nice camera, Carole...updates on the cruise as I know them...

Sugar Nellie

Karen McGiver does it again. Fabulous stamps and even more fabulous, the shipping costs from the UK to the States...check out the website and grab yourself some of these sweet little stamps. Too cute for all the little ladies in your life. I made this card for Little Miss Kylie on her 3rd birthday.
