Snow Day!!

Of all days, why would they pick the last day of school for a snow day! I was really looking forward to that time to wrap presents. And there was so much snow that we couldn't even go anywhere. Can you say "cabin fever". Of course I wasn't able to get any crafting done, but I was able to take pictures of the teacher gifts I made since we weren't able to deliver them, lol.
The first is a lunch tin of cards for Madison's teacher. She is retiring at the end of the year so I though what better than some "thank you" and "just because" cards.
This is my favorite. I found the instructions here...
It is the perfect gift box for a teacher. Inside it has some chocolate coins and candy canes. I'll definately be making more of these in the future for all kinds of celebrations.

Happy Stamping!

Merry Christmas to All!!

Well looks like I'm not getting too much crafting done, life is getting in the way. Not sure if I'll have a chance to post before christmas, only one week left and then I'm off to Barrie for christmas. Just wanted to share a couple of family photos of the kids....
Madison always talks about writing Santa a letter but we usually forget about it and don't get a chance, so this year I found and went online with her to send Santa a letter. I have to tell you that it is awesome, they even have a "naughty or nice" list and of course Madie was Nice (daddy was naughty and is definately getting coal). She even got a reply of Santa right away. Just love it.

Well, just wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy Hannukah!! Hope everyone has a great holiday season.

Happy Stamping!

Blog Candy Galore

You would think that now I have my own computer I should be able to blog more, but it's a real learning curve :-) I have to get used to everything again, and blog staulking really makes time past so fast, lol.

Here's some great blog candy up for grabs on Papermonkey. And check out this one at Poetric Artistry also.

Good Luck and Happy Stamping!

Christmas Came Early This Year...


Look what I got for christmas this year, just a little early :-) I am so happy, I finally got my new laptop and can get back to all my fun blogging and blog stalking.

I just came home from my first craft show of the season, which was a bust. I know it's pretty late for people to be buying christmas cards, I'm sure most people have already sent theres out. Oh well, craft show is done, company has come and gone. Now I only have to focus on wrapping all my christmas presents and get packed up for our family christmas is Barrie. Then I can play with all my new stamps. And maybe even catalogue them.

This year has gone by so fast and I'm heading back to work at the end of January, boooo! Oh well maybe next year I'll be more prepared for all the christmas craft shows.

Here's a bella Teacher card that I made for the craft show, didn't sell any, but I know what cards Madison can use for her teachers :-) Love this teacherbella, she is super cute, thanks to my bella sister Jacqueline for sending her to me.

Happy Stamping!

Chillin with my Penquin Boys

I don't know why I think these are boys but they are super cute! Don't you just love them. I just had to use my chunky ice glitter for the iceburg and the snowflakes. Can't really see it in the picture but it is awesome.

Image was coloured in with prismacolour markers. I didn't put any colour on the penquins body but I'm thinking maybe I should have. I have to refil my ink pad as it is a little low, too much stampin'.

Well I have a house to clean and a craft show to get ready for. It's going to be a very busy week and weekend :-)
