I'm moving to BOSTON!!!!

Apparently my clues were a little too good. BOSTON IT IS.

1) I’ve never been there before. The closest I've been to Boston is the White Mountains in New Hampshire.
2) Everyone who’s been there says I will love it. I'm impressed that so many people love this city.
3) It’s located somewhere in the US. I didn't want to throw you off and make you think I was moving back to Canada.
4) It’s colder than Memphis. After 12 years in Memphis, it's going to take a little adjustment to get used to the cold.
5) I hear this city has great seafood. I love New England Clam Chowder. It will be neat to eat it in New England.
6) Sports are a big part of this city. My favorite sport is stamping, so I know I'm going to need a little work on becoming a sports fan.
7) It’s steeped in history. This is probably the clue that gave it all away. "Steeped in history" might have made you think of a little historical event called the "Boston Tea Party". I will, however, not be throwing any tea into Boston Harbor, I will be contently sipping it every morning with my breakfast.

If any of you live in the Boston area, be sure to send me an email.
I will need some new local stamping buddies. :)

Guess where I’m moving to????

The countdown is on. Only two more weeks in Memphis and then we’re moving. Some of my friends already know the secret place, but I thought it would be fun to see if anyone else could guess which city I’m moving to (with a few clues).

1) I’ve never been there before.
2) Everyone who’s been there says I will love it.
3) It’s located somewhere in the US.
4) It’s colder than Memphis.
5) I hear this city has great seafood.
6) Sports are a big part of this city.
7) It’s steeped in history.

Check back next week to see if your guess was right.

PS: Welcome to all my new blog subscribers. I promise to get back to my stamping blog posts, once I get my craft room set up in my new place. :)

Dropping Off the Face of The Earth (what happened to me)

It’s been an absolute crazy month here. We are officially moving and we put our house on the market last week. It’s been a month of painting, cleaning, downsizing and more downsizing, packing and major sleep deprivation. I’ve packed up my craft room and while I have access to my current supplies, I don’t have time to stamp right now. Instead, I’m micro-cleaning my house, in an attempt to impress potential buyers (of which there are too few right now).

I just wanted to thank everyone who has placed an online order or purchased one of my tutorials since I dropped off the face of the earth. I appreciate your orders more than ever. I will be stamping again, once we get settled in our new location later this summer. Please bear with me while I make the transition. Don’t forget to check my tutorials page for inspiration.

For now the location of our new city will remain a mystery. I will let you know when it's official. I just might be moving to a city near you. :)

Minute Mondays: Au Revoir In-Colors

Minute Mondays, where I showcase quick cards

It's that time of year again, when we say goodbye to the retiring in colors. I will miss these in-colors, especially gumball green. I'm usually not a fan of bright greens, but this one is just the perfect shade. At the time of making this blog post all the supplies to make this card were still available, but in just two short weeks (or sooner) all of these ink colors and matching ribbon will disappear. Find out the rest of the supplies you'll need to make this card and where to get them HERE!

To make the colorful floral strip, I cut a piece of 5" x 1-1/2" piece of Whisper White Card Stock and stamped the flowers randomly making sure to fill all the white spaces.

Attach the strip centered on the note card. Stamp the greeting from the same stamp set just above the strip. Finally tie the card with a 16" length of Gumball Green Ribbon. Happy Stamping!!
