4th of July Banner Swap!

Hi Crafty Friends,
  Well... It's almost the weekend & I am sooooo looking forward to relaxing & spending time with my family! It;s going be wonderful having my whole family together to celebrate our oldest son's 20th Birthday. It really seems like yesterday, he was alittle baby & I was singing "The Wheels on the Bus" while holding him. Bitter sweet...
  Quickly, I wanted to invite anyone who would like to join in on the 4th of July Banner swap that I am putting together. If you love vintagy looking banners, then this is the swap for you! What better occassion is there to show our American pride! Here is the list of participants:
                                                Deb (shelton 1567)
                                                Steph (steph10892)
                                                Sara (thealffadog)
                                                Maureen M.
  I am in need of 3 more people to finish spelling out "July". So, if you are interested & good with making deadlines, please PM me your name/ y.t. name, address information & e-mail. I will put together a final list with everyone's assigned letter & when it needs to be mailed to me.
  Please, only join in if you can follow through on this, it's really fun, but quickly becomes "not fun" when someone doesn't follow through. Don't get me wrong, I totally undertand that "life" happens & emergencies do come up, but I am talking just generally.
  I can't wait to see everyone's tags & I just love to decorate my home for the 4th of July! I hope you do too...

Episode #295 ~ Coloring GORGUSS Stamps

Hi Everyone,
  Well YouTube finally allowed me to upload this video, I had been trying since Sunday. I am a newbie to the Copic coloring world, but I have to say I am enjoying them so much! I am also just getting into the whole Greeting Farm Stamps & also the adorable GORJUSS stamps. My new favorite (next to Stampin' Up! of course...).
  I ordered my Copic Sketch Set from PaigeeDraw & my hubby ordered the Set B from Amazon. I hope that helps anyone who might be looking into purchasing some Copic markers.
  Have a great week & Happy crafting!

Computer Meltdown!!!

Hi Everyone,
  Just a quick note to let you know that I have been trying for days to upload a video for you to YouTube and I am not having any success. It begins as though it is going to upload and after hours and hours (overnight even) I find that it dumped the video and says I have no internet connection. Now, I do have internet connection as I am able to post this for all of you, so I am not sure what is going on.
I may just have to call in my computer guru, Miss Veronica from VK Design Co, but for now I will make another "lame" attempt to figure this out for myself. I really don't like asking people for help!!!
  I am off to my craftroom to complete a few scrapbook layouts before the daily frantic carpooling begins!

Episode 294 ~ Super Simple Sunday # 27 - Stampin' Up! "Tote-Ally" Tess S...

Hi Everyone,
  I hope you are having a good week so far... I have been blessed to have our oldest son home from college & it really feels great to have all my "chicks" in the barn at night, so to speak! Plus, I have been sleeping like a rock at night & it's awesome.
  Finally had some time to myself & have been wanting to make some cards with this adorable "Tote-Ally" Tess Stamp Set. It is really the cutest little gal ever! So, this is what I created, I hope it inspires you to get in the summertime spirit. I am so looking forward to the warm weather & sunshine...
Happy Huggs,
