If you've ever had a cat,

You'll get this video. Heck, even if you don't have a cat, it's very funny.

Spooky Treats

Saturday, October 27, 2007






My late-night cupcake creations for the school Halloween carnival. I copied both of these designs off the internet... what did we do before we could search for "Halloween cupcake designs" so easily from the comfort of our own home? I was kinda hoping that one of these cuties would be voted as "best in show" by the students, but alas, a kitty litter cake won out. Lost to a tray of cat poo.

Gettin' Crafty

Sunday, October 14, 2007


My Scrap & Stamp club members are the best. I really do love to teach and share my passion for scrappin' and stampin'. This card keeper is going to one of my lucky club members, I hold a drawing at the end of the class year, in November. I adore these papers, they give that perfect "Funky Granny's Kitchen" look. This would make a great recipe tin, don't you think?

Goofing around....

I'm such a dork! (Well, that's what my kids think). I don't know, what do you think? How can you not be excited about a new pack of stamps?

Ahhh... Ikea!

I could seriously get into trouble if I lived closer to Ikea. Lucky for me (and my wallet), it's about a five hour drive to the closest one. Everything I need... and the kitchen sink. Now, if all those organizing containers that I bought would just do their job. Buying the stuff is fun, putting it to use: not so much. Still had such a good time, and my outfit kinda matches this room display, so who can resist a great photo op when it comes along?

Seattle Celebration!

Saturday, October 6, 2007


Last weekend I had so much fun at Close To My Heart's Regional Training event in Seattle. My dear friend Yvonne, who also happens to be on my consultant team, attended with me... we share the drive and a hotel room. Five hours of listening to me chatter in the car until I was hoarse, thanks for putting up with me Yvonne!


Creative Day was a blast! Make and Takes at warp-speed. Nothing like a high-energy creative session to really get me going. Keeping up with our "neighbors" Kimberly (above, center) and Tamara was impossible. Girls, you rock!
