As the year winds to an end, it's always nice to step back and just reflect on the past year's high's and low's. This year has been wonderful in many ways- new challenges at work, lots of new friends made through stamping, my sons continuing progress in tennis and finding a great new set of coaches that click with his style.
Of course, there have also been low's- my father's continuing declining health, my daughter's own unique set of health issues and her taking time off from college, a crazy fall semester with two new computer systems that drove staff and students crazy....
Tonight I got the chance to stamp with my best buddy Kellie. We completed several sets of calendars- we didn't get to make any at the class on Saturday and just spend some time talking. Watch out- we've got lots of cool stuff planned for the next year!
Finally, I wanted to post some of the projects I made- alas, my camera has gone crazy. Hopefully tomorrow- new year- new camera??
What are your goals for the next year? What was your high point of the last year? Best memory?
Would love to hear your comments.

This week's challenge, since we are on the verge of a new year, is to create a card or layout using a new technique (new to you that is!).
The title of the Challenge is New Year- New Look.
Send a picture of your card to me and I'll post it for all to see. If I get enough participation each month, I'll also host a contest for the best from each challenge and share that on my SU website.
Leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Do you like the idea of a weekly challenge? Is it something you would participate in? Would it be useful if I posed the whole month's worth of challenges at one time?

Here's the cool part (and while it is a splurge for me, I figure it will be worth eating lunch at my desk a couple more times a month). They are a membership based program (kind of like a gym) - it's $49 a month but that also includes one massage a month - and if I want more, it's only $39 per hour.
I would recommend checking them out (and if you decide to become a member- if you mention my name- I get a free massage)- so I thank you in advance!!
Here's a link to their website - I had the relaxing massage but I believe the deep tissue will be better in the future.

Poor Sharon, everytime she went to work on a page, we had already cleaned up the supplies! We finally got our act together :)
Mattie hard at work- that Crop-a-dile is too much fun
Here I'm showing Connie Sue how to do the Pearl Ex technique. We used paint brushes and Pearl Ex with Future Floor Wax to create beautiful butterflies and dragonflies for the month of April.
Clint won the "award" for best crab and quickest at assembling calendars

Don't I look wonderful?
Here's the recipe for her Peanut Butter Cookies:
1/4 pound (1 stick butter)
1/2 cup chunky peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup flour
Preheat oven to 350 and grease cookie sheets Cream the butter and peanut butter together. Beat in the 2 sugars, then add the egg and the vanilla and mix well. Mix together the salt, baking soda, and flour and add to the first mixture. Combine thoroughly. Drop by spoonful on baking sheet about 1 1/2 inches apart. press each one flat with the bake of a fork. Bake about 7 minutes or until firm. Allow to cool slightly then move to cooling rack.
These are the best!

There's still time to RSVP- just leave a comment on the blog if you'd like to attend.
Doors open at 1:00 and everyone should be on their way home by 7:00.
Here's one of the pages we'll be making- I chose June to help you think warm thoughts...
This swap has been so much fun! I have not only been inspired by the talent and creativity, but I now have a list of new techniques I want to try in 2008! It's so good to want to learn new things and branch out of the everyday comfort zone.
Day 7 brought an adorable Christmas album with all the pages already created. One of my biggest complaints this year has been about my lack of time for scrapping- this will make that task easy. All I need to do is print my pictures and 2007 is in the book! I'll post the finished product after the holidays!
Day 8 was an altered CD ornament by Teresa. I really like how she used a variety of papers and textures to create a unique one of a kind holiday treasure. Notice the beading on the bottom? Very nice. I've already got this on display and think that Altered CD's will have to be a class very soon.
Dec 20, 2007
Yesterday was an adorable Christmas tree ornament. It looks like it is made from felt with decorations and a Lovely saying.
Todays was another domino pin (I have got to learn how to do these!). This pin was all done up in red with the cutest little Santa.
I'm so pleased to have been invited to play in this swap. A very talented bunch of ladies!
Now that we are half way through the 12 Days, I'd love to hear which item has been your favorite so far. Please leave a comment and I'll also pass it on to the items designer.
Dec 19, 2007
Also, there are two specials in January- the first is for a Valentine bundle- (hint: we'll be using this at my Valentine's class at the end of Jan.) and the second is a great reason to host your own workshop (HINT HINT!)-- each $350 workshop in January not only gives the hostess regular hostess credit BUT you can also pick any one stamp set from the catalog for FREE!!! (why don't you look at your calendar and pick a date- we'll make a few cards, have some fun and...
Received the cutest little gift for Day 4 yesterday. Believe it or not, this is a post it note pad holder with a place for a pen (on top). Since I never have anything to write on when I'm at the computer and the cats always steal my pen. This will be perfect.
The holder is made out of fabric with gold trim across the top. The entire thing is closed by a strip of velcro across the top (hmmm, if I could only velcro my cat when he tries to steal my pen...). I'm already getting ideas for next year's gifts.
Dec 17, 2007
Here's a sample of one of the neat pins that was sent for the 12 Days of Christmas swap. I'll post mine as soon as I get new batteries for my camera.
If you would like to see more pictures, just wander over to the Altered Art blog.
I'm not sure of the exact technique, but the pin was made using a domino. Mine is gorgeous!
Dec 16, 2007
I pulled out my Flaky Friends set (so sorry to see them retiring!)- grabbed my black stazon and some sharpies and here's what I created.
After stamping and letting the ink dry, I popped the tiles in the oven at 200 F for about 7 minutes to set the ink.
Total time to complete the project was about 15 minutes (including coloring and baking).

My picture does NOT do this beautiful notebook justice. It's a perfect mini notebook to keep in my purse to jot down random thoughts or capture the moment in words.
It is covered with a beautiful green paper, with LOVE in gold across the front and then assorted other papers added.
The creator was Pat Mills.
Dec 15, 2007
I won't include a picture of today's item (you can see it on this blog) but If you want to see all the great gifts from the 3 Swaps Teresa hosted, check out her Altered Art blog.
I'll be sure to share each of the treasures with you as I unwrap them.
Dec 14, 2007
Things have finally started slowing down a bit and I've actually been busy stamping. With any luck, I'll even have my holiday cards in the mail by next weekend!
Here's a picture of the card I sent to my TNStampers COTM partner. All items are SU- this simple but elegant card started with the image embossed with Gold EP, layered on Bravo Burgundy with a Burgundy ribbon. This is layered on the wonderful Gold textured paper and finished by layering on white.
Hope you enjoy. Watch tomorrow for a sneak peek of one of the Calendar pages that Kellie and I will be doing for our Calendar class on Dec. 27.
Dec 13, 2007
We had our 3rd annual Cookie Exchange today. Here's some of the group- if you look very closely, I'm the one hiding in the back next to Kellie.
We invited 3 of the "guys" to judge and they had fun. Cookies were judged in two categories, taste and display. Sadly, I didn't win either category. But it was still fun.
My container was created using a small take out box, then stamped with a retired SU set (one side had a wreath and the other a snowglobe). Here's the wreath side.
Dec 12, 2007
Earlier this fall, before my dad got sick, I hosted a Brown/Orange swap. The only rules were Brown and Orange had to be incorporated into the card. Unfortunately, I didn't take pictures of all the cards received, however, I did remember to photograph 4 of them. The two cards showcased today were created by the extremely talented Susan Brandt. Be sure to visit her website to see samples of her watercolors. The top card has a paperpieced turkey as the focal point with hemp for emphasis. The bottom card also uses a paper piecing technique and matching fiber to highlight the colors. More cards tomorrow.
Dec 11, 2007
Here's the recipe in case you want to try some, too.
- 4 Tablespoons butter
- 1/2 cup whole milk
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 3 cups rolled oats
- 1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
In a sauce pan placed over medium heat, combine the butter, milk and sugar. Stir well until the butter is melted and bring to a light boil.
Add the chocolate chips and rolled oats. Mix until the chocolate chips melt, combine with the sugar and coat the oats. Add the vanilla and stir.
Using a tablespoon, scoop up some of the batter and drop onto wax or parchment paper. Allow to cool. You can refrigerate to speed up the solidification.
Makes 2 1/2 to 3 dozen cookies
I found this copy of the recipe at The Accidental Hedonist site, although I have a copy of it in several cookbooks, too.

This is a simple card to make, but offers a touch of elegance for any occasion. All products are Stampin' Up. The images are from the "Lovely as a Tree" set. They are stamped on Glossy White (I used photo paper) using black Stazon. After allowing the Stazon to dry, I used a masking technique to cover the bottom portion of the card to retain the white "snow" bottom and then used my brayer to brayer the top of the card. Apply several layers of ink until you acheive the color you want. Then use a corner punch for two layers and mount the cards. For a finishing touch, I used a little 2 way glue and dazzling diamonds.
I think this is one of my favorites so far.

I am a member of the TennesseeStampers online group (although lately- due to family circumstances, I haven't been very active). I wanted to share this delightful holiday card I received from my COTM partner for December. Don't you love the attitude!
The picture doesn't do this card justice either. Steph created a wonderful shaker card. When you have the card in your hand, it feels like you could be playing with a snow globe. For a tutorial on making shaker cards look here.
Kellie's card is a great sample for how to make a quick, easy card for those last minute, mass production nights. If you haven't started making your cards yet, you may want to consider this. Using the Letterpress stamp set from SU and some gold cord, you can make several of these in one night.
There is still time to order from Stampin' Up for those last minute holiday gifts and cards. And don't forget, the retired list is here, too.
Dec 7, 2007
Here's a quick fun way to make your own wrapping paper-
- Purchase a roll of plain paper
- Use a jumbo wheel (some great options in the catalog) and with the retiring list out- get them now while you can
- Use a basic ink
- Roll the wheel over the paper

As for Dad, the saga continues. We met with the cardio/thoracic surgeon yesterday- the news was not promising. At the very least, Dad will have most of his right leg amputated. In addition, he may need to have additional by-pass surgery to open up the stent in his leg - right now he has almost 0% blood flow in either leg. The Gangrene seems to be stable at the moment but surgery needs to occur within the next few weeks.
I'll have more later.

This weekend turned into Sick Bay at our house- first the cat got sick (for those of you who have been over- it was Princess- the large calico)- she had a fever of 105 and may be diabetic. We've been joking that she and my dad can run around in wheelchairs together if she ever needs surgery!
Then Amadeus got really sick this weekend at his tournament- stomach bug and a nosebleed that wouldn't stop! He ended up mildlly dehydrated, no tennis for 3 days and the worst part was he had to default his match when he was 2 points from winning....sigh.. Oh well- tonight I shall stamp!

Although dad was originally against any more surgery, he's starting to think that amputation may not be so bad as dying. Thanks for all your emails and support. I'll keep you posted.
Tomorrow, I'll be working on Christmas cards and will be sure to post the creations! Need to get everything done just in case...

I found this idea on the My Creative Corner blog and tweaked it a little for my needs. I am participating in a 12 Days of Christmas swap and needed a quick, small, flat gift to use and then Ama needed some quick little coaches gifts and since most of the coaches running the tennis clinic are college players, I thought they could enjoy some microwave popcorn.
The original instructions can be found here. I was running short of black cs (oops!) and so instead of making a complete belly band, I actually glued the flaps shut and then just made a Faux belly band (covering just the front of the holder). I also decreased Santa's buttons to 2. I don't think anyone will notice :)
I had a little bit of a challenge making the gold belt buckle, luckily, I was able to find my 2 different CM square punches. My first try, I punched using the 2 larger squares, but found the buckle hung over the belt. My second try, I followed the instructions and used the 3/4" punch and then the 1 1/4" punch. The hardest part was lining things up. Overall, I think they turned out well and I was able to use up some of my scrap paper, too!
I added a quick little tag using Flaky Friends (from SU)- colored the snowmen's scarves in blue to match the MTSU colors and now I have some quick coaches gifts!
I'm still working on some ideas for Richard and David (the main coaches) any suggestions on how to creatively dress up a case of Coca-cola?
Last week was a week of goods and not so good things happening. First, my dear friend (and SU buddy) Patti Keitzman husband passed away just before Thanksgiving from Pancreatic Cancer. This was quite a shock.
On a family note, my dad's gangrene returned - the bypass that was done last year to open up the circulation in his leg has failed and he is looking at extensive surgery again- possibly later this week. Please keep him in your thoughts.
On a positive note, Amadeus played in his first high level regional tennis tournament- while he didn't win, he was able to hang in there with the players and I believe that next year will bring very different results.
Finally, I wanted to share this quick project with you- it's the 3D ornament from the SU catalog (which will be replaced on Jan. 1). There was a great tutorial on the Paper Pleasing Idea's blog that I thought you would enjoy! I'm going to be making a bunch of these this week as holiday gift toppers!

Yes, it's true---I'm doing another insane 25 day free printable
countdown to Christmas. Every day from December 1st through
Christmas, I'll post a new image on the calendar. There's a catch:
you must post a link to the countdown on a blog, web site, group or
message board before you begin downloading. Post your links to this
page now: http://countdown.

This site is designed with the crafter in mind and provides more opportunities to connect with like minded crafters around the globe. I did a quick search just for stamping and found 2 categories, including one for swaps, I was really interested in exploring the altered art links.
If you get a chance, check it out and let me know what you think.
Oct 14, 2007
I know what my preferences are but I really don't know what everyone else likes to do. Please share your thoughts here.
Oct 10, 2007
The Site is called Scrapbooks, Etc.
and is a great resource.
If you're not sure what a Wiki is (thinkWikipedia) it's a place to share knowledge and users can edit the information until there is common agreement. Wiki's are becoming more and more common as teachers use the to support classroom learning and kids use them to build up a repository of information for their favorite games and hobbies. Check it out and let me know what you think!
As a reminder, our Holiday Stamp Camp will be happening in Gallatin, TN on Nov. 1- I'll be sure to share some samples from there as the time gets closer- would love to have you join us and if you can't make it, leave a post and I can send you a stamp camp kit in the mail- all the supplies and instructions so you can still have some craft time.
I'm also going to be on the road more now that tennis is finally winding down a bit. Oct. 27 I'll be in Cleveland, TN at a crop and will be demonstrating some ideas for Holiday Tags. Once I get my camera working again, I'll post those samples for you.
Nov. 1 of course is Stamp Camp. The remainder of the week will be back to tennis as Amadeus and I volunteer at the Music City Challenger Tournament (it's a $50,000 pot and brings some of the best professional players ranked between 300 and 100 in the world). We do this every year and it is a blast.
Next stop is the League of Innovations Conference on Information Technology- I'm one of the committee chairs so no stamping during those days. As soon as that finishes, its back to stamping with our Chipboard Fun class, again in Gallatin on November 15. Check my website for more details .
The month winds down with a Christmas Stamp a Stack on Tuesday November 27, again in Gallatin.
I would love to come stamp with you and your friends and show some great holiday ideas- let me know how I can help!
November 17 come visit me as I work a Holiday Craft Fair with several other vendors then on to a Crop and Stamp class.

Do you know someone who could use some cheer- make a card and send it their way?
Does someone have a special event in their lives- make a card and send it their way!
In case you haven't seen this yet- you will spend hours checking out all of the cards submitted for WCMD already- these are great!
World Card Making Day Gallery
As soon as I find my camera, I'll add a few of the creations I have made (squeezed in a few cards between my son's matches).
Post your cards please or send them to me via email and I'll add them to the blog.
Remember there will be prizes, too :)

First, I'd like to put in a plug for the Technique Junkies Newsletter. This is an incredible resource chock full of ideas. You can subscribe by going to: Technique Junkies.
This month, Pat is also offering 3 free technique tutorials and guess what? They just happen to be for Water color crayons so create a card using one of these techniques and then share it with us by Saturday at 11 p.m. CST
Need to see the link? Here's one to the Water Color Crayon page.
Your other technique choice is Crayon Resist- this is one of the simplest and yet coolest techniques (IMHO!).
Here's what you need:
- Glossy photo paper
- Black ink (stazon or classic)
- Bold image stamp(s)
- A crayon
- 3-4 daubers (if you don't have a dauber cotton balls, q-tips or something similar can work)
- 3-4 ink pads (complementary colors)
- Paper towel or tissue
Here's a sample: The Stampers Mall

Ama and I got a chance to put my years of food ops management to practice when our 2 hour shift in the food booth turned into 4. It was a blast and a great way to meet lots of people while serving up freshly grilled burgers and hot dogs. After that shift, it was time to get into costume and get ready for the 1st annual wacky raft race. We all donned wet suits and literally hit the water.
We raced in heats of 3 rafts- we almost won our heat until our fellow Rotary buddies tried to kill us with their tow line LOL-- of course, what would you expect from the floating toilets!
Just wait until NEXT YEAR!!
If you want to see more pictures- try to find Ama and I- you can view them in the photo gallery at the iSurfHendersonvilleTN site!
Let me know what you think.

I'll provide snacks and we'll be making 5 cards using the incredible Simply Sent kits. In honor of WCD, SU is also offering all simply sent kits for 20% off if purchased between Oct. 4- 8.
Cost is $10 for 5 cards. Hope to see you there!!
Sep 20, 2007
With that- the October swap will be due to me by October 15 and back to you by October 22.
Theme: Orange or brown
That's right- no particular stamp set or season- just use shades of orange or brown in your cardfront. - You can be fallish- maybe you are a UT - K fan, perhaps you are feeling a little crabby- be creative but be sure to use the color(s). Color can be done with paper, coloring, or brads, etc.
Make 5 cardfronts and get 5 back.
Sign up by October 5.

Finally home and glad to be back. The picture is of Amadeus- dressed for rain- this was taken on Saturday morning before the tournament. Chattanooga got hit with a major thunderstorm and he had to borrow our friend Judy's raincoat and Australian outback hat just to get his rackets from the car. Luckily, the weather cleared up and he was able to play.
In the meantime, swap cards for the Christmas swap have been arriving. I'll start scanning and posting them tonight.
Tomorrow- watch for my crayon resist tutorial :)
Jul 25, 2007
Here's the challenge:
- Create a card using 2 of the new SU "In Colors" as the focal point
- Theme of fall or friendship
- Send me a scan of the card by Sunday at 5 p.m. CST
Blog Candy will include:
- 1 Foot Grosgrain Ribbon
- 1 Foot Taffeta Ribbon
- 1 baggie of misc. goodies
Jul 23, 2007
We'll return to our regularly scheduled stamping and scrapping this weekend. I haven't had much time to stamp at all since July arrived- between travel for work and traveling with my son- taking a moment to just brag about my child (smile), this week was the state team tennis tournament. Our team came in 3rd in the state (yippee) and my son won 47 our of 48 possible games while his friend Tyler had a perfect tournament winning every game in every match. On top of that, our team won best sportsmanship awards for the 14U in both girls and boys. I was more proud of that than our 3rd place finish. I've included a picture of Amadeus- he looks so intense!
More stamping soon....

All products Stampin' Up unless otherwise noted.

With that- here are 4 more beautiful Card Candy samples that I received from the VC_Rocks Card Candy swap. All supplies are Stampin' Up.
Last report from Duluth- I've added a picture of part of our crew from TN who attended the conference. I really wish that I had brought a camera, although I do have access to the digital pics fro Flickr and I bought several postcards to use too. Today, I'm going to try and catch a glimpse of the Nina (replica of Christopher Columbus' boat) before I head out to the airport. Check back on Saturday when I'll be posting my how to get started scrapbooking tutorial (I'm teaching that class on Saturday a.m. and Sunday p.m.) for VC Rocks.

I have also had a chance to learn about some new Web 2.0 technologies that you might also enjoy as a stamper/scrapper/crafter/blogger. I'll share those below.
Now for some of the cool tools I think you might be interested in.
First- my long time favorite is del.icio.us.
Here, you can create an account, store all of your favorite places and also tag them and share them with your friends (or customers!). For example, if you add me to your del.icio.us network, you can see the places that I have bookmarked or share a site that you think I might enjoy. It's also great because you can add a description of the site so when you can't remember why you saved it- the description is there for you.
Another site I learned about was Meebo
Set up a free account here and then you can actually chat with your friends, customers, blog readers directly from your blog or website (when you are logged in of course).
Several more sites but time to go to tonight's adventure. More from the road later.
Jul 8, 2007
The town looks like it might be fun- we just got off to a rough start when our final connecting flight was cancelled and we had to drive nearly 3 hours to reach our final destination. What should have been a fun, relaxing evening at the pre-conference activities turned out to be a crazy ride with 5 colleagues and a stray person who attached herself to our group.
Ah well- life is an adventure....more from the road later this week.
Jul 6, 2007
The theme for this swap was to create a card using a minimum of three SU colors (not including black/white). All samples displayed were made using SU products unless otherwise noted. Hope you enjoy and are inspired.
Jul 5, 2007
To create your "Card Candy" stamp several smaller images that would make great embellishments on either an album page or a card. For my card candy, I used SU's "Looks Like Spring" set plus some coordinating Gingham and buttons. After stamping and coloring my images, I used mini glue dots to adhere them to a piece of waxed paper. Now, when I'm ready to use the "candy" I can just peel it off and add it to my card or page.
I think these will also make great hostess gifts, if placed in small cello bags. I will give credit to each of the swaps later today (I need to go home and read the backs of each), in the meantime, enjoy the samples.
All images, papers, inks etc. are Stampin' Up.
Jul 4, 2007
I put all the names in a hat and had my son pull one! So Tami, if you could contact me, I'll get your goodies to you!
Thanks everyone for the kind comments. Have a wonderful day- I'll be back with more pics and ideas later this week. We're heading off to the tennis courts in a few minutes and then to a picnic :)
Jul 3, 2007
Thanks everyone for stopping by!
Jul 2, 2007
What, you might ask is blog candy? It's a gift from me to you. The blog candy this time will include:
- 2 yards of Chocolate chip grosgrain
- 2 yards of celery grosgrain
- and some other goodies
Jul 1, 2007
Reminder- the July Swap will be Christmas in July- create 5 full cards with a Christmas theme and receive 5 full cards back. Sign ups end July 6. Cards are due by July 23 and will be returned to you by July 30.
