Ahh, it's been too long

Okay, so shame on me for not updating in a month! I have had *what seems like* a lot going on this past month. I was getting ready for Christmas around Sabina the first few weeks and then trying to recoup from the devistation last few weeks. And yes, I said devistation! I made around 50 glitter bulb ornaments (the ones that get such praise on Splitcoast!) and only sold 2. T-W-O! That's it! Wow, was I disapointed! I also made lots of other things that didn't sell worth poop. All in all when you take out the cost of everything I made about $20. Exciting huh? But we won't dell on the negative. As my momma always says, "Dwell on the good and lovely!" Thanks mom for ringing in my ear cause sometimes I just wanna scream. At least I have Christmas gifts done for my family! You know who you are!!! :0)

Now on to positive things! I have actually gotten some cards done that I like quite a bit! That's always a plus! Here are two that I got done today. They are just the same with a few exceptions.

  • Ruby Red Cardstock (SU)
  • My Mind's Eye patterned paper (LOVE it) from Everyday Tango stack
  • Always Artichoke ink (SU)
  • Canvas BG stamp (SU)
  • 'Joy' from Small Script set (SU)
  • 'Happy Holidays' stamp (oogaloo)
  • pine bough from All things of Nature (TAC)
  • olive grosgrain ribbon
  • glitter
  • pop dots
  • sponge
The whole red strip is popped up and sponged with the Artichoke.

Both are 4 1/4 X 4 1/4

I have also been cleaning up my stamp space and figured I would post some pics of my area. It is so tiny compared to the rooms I have seen on SCS but I love my space! I am lucky to have what I have and I know I'm blessed! So here goes. I labeled everything in the pics. And please don't post any comments about me being a paper hoarder, I already know I am and am currently trying to organize a 12 step program. *grin* Just click on the pics to make them bigger if ya want.

Okay, so I played with these pictures for way too long now and I still can't get them the way I want. They're there and I guess that's the point, right?

I have made quite a few more cards and other things but I'll just upload my favorites.

These are from a HSW (half sheet wonder). LOL Okay, so I wasn't sure how I'd like it so I only made 1/2 sheet. Turns out I really like the red and blue together so I'll probably be making more.
  • Bashful Blue, Ruby Red, and white CS (SU)
  • Ruby Red, Bashful Blue, Sahara Sand ink pads (SU)
  • Canvas BG (SU)
  • Snowflakes set (TAC)
  • 'Happy Holidays' stamp (oogaloo)
  • grosgrain ribbon
  • sponge

I'll only put up one more card today. This was the first card I had made with the All Things of Nature set from TAC. It had been sitting there a while, un-inked. I love it though and I do plan on using it for the card sets that I make for Christmas gifts. This one was for my mom's friend who loves birds.

  • Bashful Blue CS (SU)
  • brown CS
  • All things of Nature set (TAC)
  • Wonderful Words set (SU)
  • Weathered Wood BG (Sonlight Impessions from Cornish Heritage Farms)
  • Close to Cocoa ink
  • brown gingham ribbon
  • Prismacolor pencils
  • Gamsol
  • blending stumps

Okay, now for my final project Harley Davidson ornament. I actually did sell 5 out of 6 of these at CAS. Click HERE if you want the details.

Well, hopefully I will be back in a few days to update. I know all of my devoted fans hold their breath until I post again!!!!! Hmmm, okay so maybe one devoted fan. LOL You know who you are......Amy! Goodnight and God Bless!
