I've Been Away for Too Long...

Luckily I don't have a defined fan base that is going crazy looking for new things here. It's just been busy lately...I've been trying to get my Stampin' Up stuff together and some samples made. I also participated in a contest at Scrappin' with the 3 layouts are from that (didn't make it to the final week)! I just made 2 SU cards I love but I submitted them to a Canadian magazine (you can also view the entire thing online at so I won't be posting them here until I hear that they didn't make it into the issue. I keep having photography problems too...aaahhh!

Anyway, here's some news from Stampin' Up:

I made it through to the first round of Last Scrapper Standing at Scrappin' with Grace! We have an awesome sketch to work should go try it (you can find it in the message board)...I'm really excited to get started! I'd really like to get it started and finished tomorrow because my starter kit from Stampin' Up comes on Wednesday (so says the UPS tracker)...excited to play with that!

Well anyway it's getting later and I'm thinking I may stay up later tomorrow to get this challenge a rollin' so I'm headed over to watch the Make a Card Monday video at Kristina Werner's blog ( if you haven't found it yet)...she's so fun and has AMAZING ideas. Go check it out!!! Well that's all for tonight...I was at school from 7 am to 8 pm tonight so I've gotta get off to bed because I'm exhausted!

Busy busy busy...

Hola! Thought I'd update you on my's been kinda nuts! On Monday I sent in my paperwork to become a Stampin' Up Demonstrator! I'm way excited and between my upline Beth and the ladies over at SCS ( I feel like I just can't wait to get started. Also on Monday I received my SU order (before I decided to be a demo) with my Baroque Motifs set, Purely Pomegranate Pad & Refill, Tag Punch, and the BEST FREE set for Sale-a-Bration! I'm not kidding you, the set is the reason I spent $50...totally worth it! It's called Lots of Thoughs and it is so super-versatile...go check out SCS creations with it at

Wednesday brought 2 things...1 fun 1 not...#1 I received my demo # when enabled me to get onto SU's demo only website and SCS's demo only forum...such great resources. #2 Stomach ends at 2:40 and at 2:37 I had to leave my Algebra II class to fend for themselves because I had to get to the bathroom.

Thursday and Friday I spent in bed...still with the same dang stomach bug. We don't get ABC (stinkin' crazy satellite problem) so I was catching up on my shows...Dance War finale and Cashmere Mafia from last week and noticed that they had all seasons of LOST online (free?!? yes! need to hurry before they remove them). Anyway, I'd heard oodles of good things for years about it and had just never started watching I'm on episode 8 and totally hooked! (Along with my other 18 million shows...Project Runway, Ugly Betty, One Tree Hill, Grey's Anatomy, America's Next Top Model, Desperate Housewives, Pushing Daisies...) Yesterday I went to the Urgent Care (less wait than the ER) and he said it is probably some stomach virus...gave me some far so good...we'll see!

Anyway, I'm dreading going back to school tomorrow as teachers have progress grades due Tuesday and now I'm way behind. Hopefully the students and parents will be understanding! However, I am hoping that my demo starter kit will be coming tomorrow as it was mailed Friday!

Also I'll be uploading the long promised clock that I finally got finished...hopefully my husband can fix the arms as the hour hand just flails around...argh! All products are French Kitchen Reminisce besides American Crafts Thickers and the acrylic paint I needed to paint them with (they were already red but it was too bright...aaahhh!)
