Class Day

If you weren't missed a great Class...this was one of my Mini Big Shot Classes. We did 3 cards, using different techniques with the Big Shot.

All of the projects were designed back in June....then the new catalog came out and this Die was no longer availabe...but we had the little Petal Envelope I made a matching mini treat holds and M & M. So cute. The class was also recheduled 3 it has sort of evolved!!!!

Here's project #2....I ended up changing the papers on this one...and I love these colors....this is using Alunminum from a soda can in the Big Shot.....Makes some neat things...and there are no sharp edges like you would think!!!

Lastly, we did the Buttervly Die....and I just love this card....He almost lifts off of the page!!!

Coming up for Air!!!

The Stamp Show went very well this past weekend....the facilities at the Larimer County Fairgrounds were fantastic....wish the crowds had been a bit is a long way out there!!! The drive home wasn't fun....there was a big wreck on I decided to cut over to E-470....early to avoid it all...but the exit I took was one of those split ones...then the guy in front of me cut me off, so I missed my exit...and ended up going west instead of Boulder....due to bad directions from a gal at McDonalds in Broomfield....So after much wandering in the dark, I finally found a road I knew...but it took me almost 4 hours to get home.....not fun.

Today was a very productive day. Got the house back to normal, then got some show work done...and then I actually got my swaps for Wednesday night done....

Then I thought I would share the projects that Joyce shared with us last RMI....since we will be meeting Wednesday....

Too much fun!!!!

Lazy Saturday...

I have so much to do, and am trying not to stress decided...I would do what I could and the rest would just have to wait for another day...with that attitude...I did amazing things.....Started this morning....decided to put a yummy dinner in the Crock Pot...Chicken with all the fixin's...was it yummy!!! And the house smeslled heavenly all day...Oregano and Rosemary...yumm!!! I also decided, while I was making a collosal mess in the Kitchen to make stuffed cabbage for tomorrow...since I will be gone all day...I will just have to have Steven pop it in the oven...toss a salad together...and we're good!!! After that was all done...Steven came in and said he'd clean up the Kitchen...gotta love them!!! So I went off and tackled some laundry, and a little now I don't feel like I've neglected it too much....Next I tackled Bills....the much dreaded chore...and I guess cause the house was smelling so domestic...and I was on a only took a very short time. Next I worked a little on the Booth for the Show up in Denver in 2 I no longer feel so behind in that...and can actually see the light at the end of the tunnel!!! So now I'm getting my swap together for tomorrow....will share it later...And hopefully I can throw a project together....Thought I would show a few Birthday cards from August....I just found a stack from Rocky Mountain Inkslingers....

I think these were made by Kim and Cindy!! Love them!!! Will post more later!!!

Wonderfully Fall!!!

I just love it when the weather finally turns a little cooler!!! I have so much more energy. Today was a great weekend!!! Yesterday I had a wonderful workshop at Sharon's'....When I get my kits cleaned up, I will show what we made...but the Owl Treat Boxes were a big hit!!! Thanks Kim for the idea!!!

Today was catch up day for all sorts of odds and ends...but I did manage a great phone call to my brother Mike, and then a nap!!!! Topped it of with homemade meatloaf, squash casserole and fresh green beans from the garden....the last of them, for dinner!!! We have tomatoes coming out of our will probably make sauce on Wednesday...along with some baking!!! Yumm!!! Another reason I love this time of year...the smells and tastes are so good!!!!

Thought I'd share one of the Rag Purses I finally got together for me!!!

I just love the red and black colors together. Have material for one more of this size and then I'm gonna make a tote bag size, in yellow and black!!! These little bags are very easy to make, minimal sewing, and they are very quick!!!!...Addicting too!!!
