I'm baaaaaack....


Well, after a long absence from the blogging world, I am back.  What a crazy, busy month it has been! Classes, Valentines for Vintage Market....but most exciting: LEADERSHIP! Wow, I cannot really put into words what this experience was like.  It was my first Stampin' Up! Leadership Conference and it was awesome.  Convention is so exciting, but at Leadership we are simply spoiled, no other way to put it! I have so many pictures, projects, gifts, etc to share, but I wanted to start with a little sneak peek!  Here is a picture of the fabulous pillow gifts that I received from my roommates on our first night in San Antonio.  I am so blessed to be a part of such a talented group of girls.  The pictures do not do these items justice.  I took individual photos of each gift to share with you over the next few posts, so keep watching.  Since I am blogging on my lunch hour I need to get back to work.  Until next time.....

Love is in the air...

Hello stampers!
Hope you all had a great holiday season!  As you can tell it has been a while since my last post...I was very busy over the holidays keeping up with my boyfriend, my family, and my stamping business.  Now that we have said goodbye to Christmas I am ready to say hello to Valentine's Day!  Of course I have my own personal reasons why I am excited about the season of "LOVE"...heeheehee, but it is also nice to move on to some different kinds of projects.  Here is a glass jar candle that I decorated to sell at Vintage Market.  If you have recently paid a visit to the Clearance Rack you might have noticed that our gorgeous "Love Letters" Designer Series Paper has made a return and at a very low price...It has always been one of my favorites.  I punched hearts out with our Large Heart Punch and backed them with the matching Heart Emobosslit for the Big Shot.  I then added a Cherry Cobbler Button and a Cherry Cobbler Flower Brad with an adhesive pearl in the center.  I topped it all off with a bow made from our Crocheted Ribbon.  I picked up these glass candles for just a buck at the Dollar Tree so they are a fun and in expensive way to create really cool home decor or gifts.  Check back for my next post; I will show you yet another way to decorate one of these candles with a different Big Shot Die. 

Until next time...
