This Saturday (Nov 29th) from 11 - 3 or Sunday (Nov. 30th) from 1 - 4.
We will be making 5 cards, two of each ~ $12. Can't beat that! And of course there will be lots of drawings and fun stuff like that. The sales that The Angel Company has at the moment are fabulous ~ and the vintage stamp sets that have been released for a limited time are even more fabulous!!! You'll have to come by to see! LOL
Email for directions and to RSVP: firstname.lastname@example.org :)
My friend Alysia and her mom came over yesterday (baby Emma too!) with bags full of Chinese food, yummy munchies, and of course Christmas projects to work on. We had a great time making these little cocoa/Snowman Soup gifts - I will have to take a picture to post. I also finished a banner for replace the "spooky" one that I had made for Halloween. The new ones says "noel." What a great way to spend a cold Sunday afternoon!
Pictures to follow... soon! :)

Onto the card! I made most of these at a retreat in Healy, Alaska last month - I think that the Drippy Goo punch of Martha Stewart is just too much fun! The candy corns and piece of candy are from Clear Dollar Stamp. The Halloween circle stamp is from The Angel Company. It is a new set from the Fall Supplement. Was loving the orange stickles too!

I was able to make Halloween goodies for my co-workers, I finished about 8 page layouts... maybe 10, I forget. It was just what I needed though! I have been working a lot of hours between my two jobs - and needed a break. Hopefully things will slow down a bit so that I can spend some quality time in my "craft cave!"
Have a fantastic Thursday!

I have to tell you about the awesome weekend that my DH and steps-on had! Fritzi (step-son) turned 16 this past week... OMGosh!... for years - DH has been planning the big "16" birthday surprise. So, in May, we bought airlines tickets for him to fly to Montana to surprise Fritzi - and then the two of them flew to Arizona for the weekend - and went to the Diamond Backs' baseball game (and Jessica Simpson performed that night at the game) and the Cardinal's Dolphin's football game (where Daughtry performed! I am sooo jealous!!! LOL) The real reason for the trip was the football game. Fritzi is a die-hard Dolphins fan. It sounds like they had a great time and I am sooo glad that it was a surprise!!! I wish I could have been there to see Fritzi's face when his dad gave him the tickets for the football game. My dad said that it was pretty cute. Augh...
Okey, so I had this whole weekend planned to take picts of card and stuff and then went to get my camera and it was gone! Gone to Arizona with DH! AUGH! I could have used an older one, but I am spoiled now... so hopefully I can find something on this computer to share! LOL
Hold on a second... I am going to go look! :)
I am back! Found one!!! Perfect time to share this oldie, but goodie from seminar a couple years ago with The Angel Company!
It is kind of hard to see, but the wings are made out of two hearts stamped end to end of vellum. I colored the image using Pantone markers (this was a couple years ago before Pantone changed to Tria), the paper is My Mind's Eye and TAC. Perfect timing for this card too because now until November 3rd is a terrific time to get your wings! The Angel Company is having a "Double Dip" promotion. Previously known as double hostess benefits time, Jubilee, etc... New angels, customers, and hostesses can double up on rubba!!!
ALSO... if you are in the Fairbanks area, this weekend is like last ditch before winter hits garage sale weekend!!! There is going to be a "craft" sale at the Fairbanks Senior Center from 9 - 2 on Saturday. (Turn by Dinty's). I will have TONS of stamps, awesome grab bags of paper, magazines, and more that really need a new home before winter!
This is one of those weeks too!!! It is Homecoming week at our high school. Don't know exactly how... but this year I am the Jr. Class Advisor. Hmmm... I couldn't resist when they asked. I told them that I would do it only if they got me a tiara for prom! LOL I tell you what - I am having fun! I didn't really get into the whole thing when I was in high school - maybe float decorating, but I think that I kind of skipped a lot of the rest of it because I was busy with 4-H, volunteering, working, looking for trouble (not me! LOL), etc. Their float theme is the 50's. Their ideas is way cute - I hope that it all pans out!
Well, enjoy your week!!!

This weekend I am finally having my new catalog reveal/Open House! I am excited to be getting together with some of my stamping friends again!
Monday, July 7, 2008
Have a card or two to share. Hopefully I can get some stamping in this afternoon yet before teaching tonight. I need to get some swaps done.
The second one (below) is the same paper pack, same samp set, only uses the Button Loopy Brads. They are very fun! The cards were designed for the Fall TAC Inspiration book, but didn't make ~ but that is OK because now I can share them on my blog! :)
If you haven't gotten you new TAC Inspiration book yet, it is one to get your hands one! Lots of great ideas for card making and scrapbooking! The Inspiration Book also features 5 different card sketches, featured throughout the book. These two cards are based on those sketches.

Donna tagged me! :)
The "rules" of the game:
Each player answers the questions about themselves. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5-6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog.
Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.
Ten years ago: Single, living in Billings, MT. I was attending Graduate School at Montana State Univ.-Billings and working at the mall (augh!!!) at Gymboree. I lived with Melissa and Nancy in a basement apartment. I am pretty sure that partying was about all I was worried about! LOL
Five things in todays 'to do list':
(2) work on hubby's Father's Day present
(3) finish a couple things for TAC seminar
(4) hmmm... relax!
(5) I really don't know yet... Gotta love Sundays!
Things I would do if I was a millionaire: I would probably buy our "retirement" house. I found a beautiful place in Kalispell, Montana that might be fun! Invest for our retirement and some for college for the kids, and donate some to a charity.
I will now tag:
Enjoy your weekend!!!

Golly, I have been a blog slacker lately! Summer in Alaska brings a really busy schedule with it! I am teaching three evening classes this term for two universities, still working during the day, we have my husband's 13 year old daughter with us, getting ready for The Angel Company Seminar, AND Elton John came to Fairbanks for a visit!!!!
What an awesome concert! He played for 2 1/2 hours straight! All his best songs!!! It was just so cool!!! It is one of those things that ya just have to experience as words can not describe it.

Enoy your weekend and hopefully I can post something for "progress" while I am in Montana.

The 80's going away party for my friend Amy was Friday night. It was a hit! I do have picts to post, but am typing from a remote computer... those will have to wait until I get home. There are some great ones though!! DH judged the costumes that we put together, organized our games for us, and then made sure we each had an air mattress or couch. What a sweetie!
OK - so on with the title. Sunday, DH and I were checking out at the commissary when we overheard a conversation between a mother and her son standing in line behind us. Apparently, he had picked up a treat of some sort and was doing his best to try to convince his mom that he needed this. He started off with, " Mom, it has been like a long time, a year, maybe two years since I have gotten anything like this!" Then he must have licked the box because the mom was going on and on about him licking the box - yucky! Then he said, "Mom, I admit that you are my mom ~ but I think that you should help to convince me that you are my mom by showing me some caring and generosity." She continued with,"I will not be manipulated by my 7 year old son!" He said, "Mom, I am not manipulating you. I deserve it." And her ranting went on and on... blah! blah! blah! As I am trying not to laugh my a** off... I am thinking to myself how she could have easily defused the situation and squelched the hilarious show for the rest of us. Text book case... I teach parenting classes every once in awhile... right now it is "123 magic"... she did the top two "no no's" ~ little adult syndrome and kept on talking which egged him on... Oh well... it was funny... but I am sure that poor mom was ready to pull her hair out!

Yesterday DH put together our new kitchen table and chairs. It looks soooo nice! The furniture store forgot to spray the protective stuff on the chairs, so someone is coming out today to fix that for us - talk about customer service!

I did learn that dye ink doesn't work as well with the clear stamps (stains badly too) as the Palette pad ink.
The weather is finally something that I think we can call "springlike" here! The snow is, yes I think that it is safe to say it, almost gone! This Friday we are having an annual Break-Up Beach party. Good times! :)

The sun is starting to rise earlier and set later... and causing lovely glares on the TV. So, last night a trip on a whim to WalMart occured. TROUBLE!!! We found curtains and a great curtain rod for living room, great black out curtains for the bedroom ~ as well as a cool curtain rod... and of course other things that we really didn't need! Isn't that how it always goes?! Glad that we don't go to Walmart very often! Anyway, the curtains are hung in the living room and make such a difference! They even look pretty - well, except for the wrinkles ~ but those will hang out.
Ohhh!!! New toy!!! DH let me get a Pazzle for my birthday! HSN had a great package deal a couple weeks ago. I have opened the box - but have to wait until after my stamp-a-stack to play with it or else I fear that I will get nothing done! I am debating on getting rid of my Cricket now... hmmm... tough decision... whatcha think?
Last thing... our shoppette got my and DHs favorite ice cream in!!! Ben & Jerry's Chubby Hubby!!! It is delectable! Here is the description from Ben & Jerry's website! I LOVE it!
"It began with two office jokesters' pulling a prank on a colleague whose endless tales of his love for Ben & Jerry's made them nuts. They hatched an imaginary batch packed with pretzels, peanut butter, & fudge in vanilla malt ice cream & spread a rumor of a brand new Ben & Jerry's hit called ""Chubby Hubby"". After searching obsessively he was crushed when the hoax was revealed, so the jokesters home-made a pint. He proclaimed it too good to be a joke & after one taste, so did we. The rest is history. Chubby Hubby -- it's no joke!"

Thought that I would share another project from my time home creating this week. I made a ton of Easter cards to send to family and friends. I love the "No bunny Like You" set from TAC! Very cute!!! And ~ if you haven't stumbled upon it... The Angel Company has a new blog! It features awesome projects! My hat is featured at the moment. Check it out!
Enjoy your weekend!!!
