About Me

My photo

I am married to a Great Guy - Charlie.  We have a beautiful daughter, Charese, who is a JOY to have.  We love the outdoors, watching movies, reading and I love scrapbooking and cardmaking.  There are other hobbies as well.  I love to meet new people and share my love of scrapbooking and cardmaking with people.

Creating Creating Creating

I Love Creating things especially new things.  I just recently created something it turned out really good I think however, I can't post it yet because it is a Christmas gift and I am afraid they will hop on to my site and see it.  So you will have to wait a few more days to see it.

I was wondering do you have any fun, crazy or just basic traditions that you do during the Christmas holiday.

Since I was about 12 years old have made, yes made a gift for everyone in my family, 4 brothers (older), one younger sister, and my parents.  I  do have to say that they have gotten better since I have gotten older.  Oh some of them were really well now that I look back ugly but my family all pretended like they liked them (or perhaps they really did at the time).

Now it is harder some years since we are all older but I still try to make everyone a gift at Christmas time.

Share your traditions please, I would love to hear them.

Happy Thanksgiving to All

Hello everyone -

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  My family did we had a wonderful meal (two actually) and got extremely stuffed and then managed to eat more.  You know how it goes.

I did some black Friday Shopping - got a few new cricuts to play with (very excited to break them open this week hopefully).  Got a few gifts and a few things to just buy for me.  Had a wonderful time shopping with my Mom, and brother.  Our first stop was Target - we waited 50 minutes (yes my brother timed it) to check out but it went very fast line always moving and actual check out went speedy too.  Target did a great job.

All in all we had a blast just being together and being a part of the hussle and bussle of the season and I do have to say it helped put me in the mood.

Charese and I decorated the house on Saturday have it all done except for the trees which will go up tonight or tomorrow.  Then comes the start of planning the days of when we are going to bake cookies.  Also this year Charese and I are going to attempt to put together a Gingerbread House Kit that we purchased this weekend.  She of course wants to do it NOW but I told her we will wait a few days to do it.

All in all it is getting exciting around here - and we are enjoying every minute.

I wish you all the best and hope that you got to enjoy Family time this Thanksgiving as well.

November News

Hello everyone -
Wow Minnesota Winter has begun and I do have to say that Saturdays snow was beautiful, (just not to drive in) and today is more of the same.  I love the snow, just not the cold.

I am though having issues getting into the Christmas Spirit around here this year which is making me sad since it is my very favorite time of year.  So I am not sure what I am going to do to get in the spirit  of the season:
perhaps I will try some of the following this weekend:

Baking Christmas cookies
Making a List of People to get gifts for then seeing how many of them I could make a gift for
Play Christmas music and start decorating the house

Well that is a start.

How do you get in the Spirit of Christmas?  Comment and let me know it looks like I need some inspiration.

For now I will enjoy the snow that is coming down right now. 

I am sorry I haven't been out here for awhile.  I have been busy getting my classes finished up.  I will have more things to share soon.  Check back often and please share a comment or two that will put a smile on my face.

THINK PINK BLOG HOP

This the side front the flap is magnetic
 Welcome to the Think Pink Blog Hop! I am so excited to have you join me here at my first ever blog hop. You should have arrived here from Peanutbutter and Jelly Design’s blog. We are doing this Blog Hop to promote Breast Cancer Awareness, and remind all of you to do your self-exams! Our Sponsor is Sarah, at http://pinkcricut.com and she has generously donated a $25 gift certificate for our Grand Blog Candy Prize. If you haven't seen her line of Pink by Design Stamps, you should check her out.

I decided to create something that has been on my to do list for awhile. I created a Memory Keeper box from Close To My Heart. I covered the box with a paper packet (also from CTMH) that was pink with some other colors in it as well. The paper packet is called Life Delights which is an inspiring name, I think. It had butterflies on it that I liked. I stamped additional butterflies using three different butterfly stamp sets; the first Celebrate Life, the second Embrace Life, and the third Spring Possibilities (all three by CTMH) I then cut them out added glitter to them, pink glitter to the two smaller ones and white glitter to the big one. Then I placed the two smaller ones over the butterflies that were on the paper using foam dots to add dimension to the project. I printed the sayings using my computer and glued them on. I also applied rhinestones all over the cover on the swirls. You can open the box and store your keepsakes in it. I plan on storing cards that I have received over the years from loved ones in it.





This is the top of the Memory Keeper Box

I AM BACK

Hello everyone -

Sorry was gone for a while if you have noticed I have posted a information about an upcoming 50 Holiday Card Class I am offerring.  Well I had to step away from the computer for about a week and 3 days to get all the paper cut for this upcoming event.  I put 30 kits together.  Just for the card bases I had to cut 750 pieces of paper.  It is relaxing to me most of the time.  I am going to shut out a huge THANK YOU to my husband who counted all the papers and put them into their kits.  He is such a great guy.

Well I am back and I have exciting news about an upcoming event so stayed tuned.  I have entered my first blog hop and it will start on the 9th and run the 11th.  I am so very excited. 

Have a good one everyone.

50 Holiday Card Class

Hello everyone - I managed to get the cards designed this weekend - sorry for the delay.  I am excited about them - not to excited about all the cutting I have to do now to get the kits ready.  Actually I am excited about preparing this class for you.  We will be making 10 each of the 5 different designs for a total of 50 cards.

Here are the samples (which are subject to change due to supplies etc.) But this is the jist of what they will be.




I just love this class.  It will be offered at the following places.
Buffalo Community Education - Tuesday, October 12th and Monday, October 25 you can register by calling 763-682-8776 or http://www.buffalocommunityed.com/
Rockford Community Education - Wednesday, October 13 you can register for this class by calling 763-477-4563 or http://www.rockford.k12.mn.us/
Howard Lake Community Education - Thursday October 14 you can register for this class by calling 320-543-3600
Delano Community Education - Tuesday, October 26 you can register for this class by calling 763-972-6210 or http://www.delano.k12.mn.us/ click on community tab
Watertown/Mayer Community Education - Wednesday, Ocboer 27 you can register for this class by calling 952-955-0280 or http://www.wm.k12.mn.us/ click on community ed register on line tab

Again like usual if you have the unfortunate dismay that the above dates and times don't work for you - you can purchase the kit from me and put them together at home yourself.  The cost for this is $35 for just the kit not stamped (you would have to use your own stamps) or $40 and I would stamp and put one of each card together for you for a sample.

Need more than 50 cards just purchase an additional kit for $35 and stamp away.  Please let me know at or before start of class that you would like to this by emailing me at tlbcreates@comcast.net.

Again I hope to see you all soon at a class.

Thoughts from a Mom today

Today - I woke up to my daughter still in pain.  She fell off the monkey bars Friday at school.  It didn't seem to bother her to much yesterday but through the evening it got worst.  So I sent her to my husband (he handles those things better - after all I have never had a broken bone he has) and he told me I should bring her in before Gymnastics so we know what is going on.  Sure enough - not good news - broken elbow well she thinks there is a bone in there broken so we have to see the specialist on Monday.  What a morning!!  So right now it is wrapped in an ace bandage and in a sling and she is bored out of her mind.  Which is making it difficult on Mom what kind of things can you do?  Well we are starting with movies and now I am trying to get some cards designed out for my upcoming class.  I really need to get them done this weekend.  I hope I can get inspired and get my work done.  Well that is what I am off to do.  I hope and pray that my daughter recovers quickly and that on Monday we get perhaps some good news.

Now to work.

CENTER PIECES

These are the center pieces I made for my Husbands 40th Surprise Birthday Party.  I did a Duck Hunting there which was very hard to find decorations for so I had to use the creative force.  I think I did a good job.  Also I am posting the Invitations I made and sent out for his party.  Hope you enjoy.

This above picture is on the back wall of our garage - my niece drew it free hand and then she and my daughter helped me paint it and then I finished the painting by adding all the little details etc.  It was a lot of fun and we did it for my husband who really likes it.  Now we feel like we are driving into the hunting blind every day. 

I don't have a picture of the invitation yet so I will get that and load it as soon as possible.
Thanks for taking a look.

In with the New out with the Old

I am very excited to say that CTMH has come out with the 2010 Fall Catalog which will be available to customers in September.  There are some very exciting new products and stamps in the catalog. 

With the new catalog though also comes the publishing of the 2011 Retired List.  Which is available now.  I will send to those of you that would like to see it upon request.  These items will be available while supplies last until December 31, 2010.

CTMH has announced some changes coming in 2011 and therefore the retired list will seem very big to you.  So don't miss out on this opportunity to get the items you have been waiting on - because as of December 31 they may not be there any more.

Item # Description

Z1280 Expressives® Font CD Volume I

July 3rd

Have you ever set goals for yourself only to find yourself getting bored with them and drifting off in another direction?

I have had that happen to me just this week.  I had set a goal to stay focused on finishing two albums (they are basically the same albums one is a 40th Anniversary Album for my parents and the other is Our Family Disney Trip - they are the same in the fact that for my parents 40th we went to Florida almost the whole family - anyway I am doing some of the pages the same why rethink the wheel) my parents 40th Anniversary Album and Our Disney Vacation Album.  Now I was cruising a long getting lots of pages going but then all of a sudden I decided to go through some boxes of pictures and pull out some and start working on them.

WHY.....

I do wonder why I did this but I do have to say that I whipped out several pages and got a new inspiration so it must of been what I needed.  I ended up pulling out all of my daughters Tball pictures from when she was 5 she is nine now.  I completed up to date (except for I am waiting for last years pictures to come in the mail - I had to get them printed along with this years.)   By the end of the month they will be completely caught up to date.  The other pictures I pulled out were all of her Dance pictures since she was 3 or 4 years old.  They are currently in the loop of getting worked on.  But through all of this I am still working on the other two albums as well.

Here are some of the pages I finished the first week of July.

















I hope you enjoy them.  I so love capturing the memories my family makes.  It is like reliving it everytime we look at the pictures.  That is what it truly is all about.
