Happy Birthday to a Dear Nephew!
The inspiration and the artist rendering!

So, Nick- what to do on your special day?!
Happy Birthday to a Dear Nephew!

So this is what becomes your 3-D project! Remove res double stick tape strips on short sides and fold at an angle to get the maximum amount of candy into favor box. Sides should form a vee-not straight up.

Enjoy! I had a wonderful time making them for my beloved special folks!


It's been awhile!
I back for a short bit! Tonight I'm posting my Halloween project after making chili and after watching The Middle! That show is so my family! Love it!

This is what I started with and the next picture is what I made! For those of you who received a "flat" package from me, please study the pictures for your DIY tutorial!

Stamped cards!

Found a Martha Stewart stamp set at TJMaxx-of all places!, and have been creating with it! I used PTI kraft card stock, buttons and sentiment along with SU! very vanilla card stock and ribbon.

Then I decided to kick it up a notch! PTI background and sentiment stamps and ribbon, Martha Stewart punch and Hero Arts gems.

I have another card to post, but must wait until the recipient sees it first! No peeking!

Back to the "studio" for some Halloween sweet creations!

Love the dog!

Fizzy is waiting for me to throw the ball! Life is all about the ball being thrown and she is all about jumping and fetching said ball! She loves you, Ginger and friends!


Yesterday was harvest time for the pumpkins! Five of them! Count'em, 1-2-3-4-5...ok pumpkin gourds! I grew 'em and the woodchuck didn't get them! Success!
They will add seasonal color to my desk at work and dining room table.

Happy Independance Day!

Happy Fourth of July, everyone! Reflect, revere and respect all that the 4th means to each and everyone of us!
I hope everyone is able to celebrate! These rice crispy fireworks were dipped in chocolate before they were enjoyed by all the kids! We are off to visit family friends tomorrow! There will be a wonderful pond & HOT weather, plenty of rafts, fishing for those who want to, a cook out with plenty of food and lots of laughter!
It's time to head to Moose Beach now!
