Bonjour Crafty Friends!

What a wonderful time we are having here in Paris! So much to see and do and did I mention how delicious the macaroons are?!?
 This is such an amazing trip and I know how blessed we are ... 
I will be back in my craft room this coming week  so thank you for understanding my precious time spent with my youngest son and hubby. 
Happy Hugs,

Greetings from Paris ~

Hi Crafty Friends,
My hubby and I have recently arrived in Paris and are anxiously awaiting the arrival of our youngest son Zack tomorrow morning from Scotland! 
We are so excited to see him and we are staying at a lovely boutique hotel just blocks from the Eiffel Tower. 


Needless to say I won’t have any crafting videos up over the next 10 days but I will share some fun pictures of our adventure here if you are interested. 
I’ll get back on track shortly after we arrive home. 
Happy Fall,

Ep. 643 ~ Silly Pumpkin Halloween Treat Box!

OMG you guys!!!
This is the CUTEST project I've seen in quite some time! It came across my Facebook feed this morning and was presented by a lovely women Gloria Plunkett on Splitcoast Stampers and the minute I saw this cutie I immediately ran down to my craft room and started making one.
How stinkin' cute are these?!? 
They hold 4 Fun Size Candy Bars (I am out because I finished of the bag that was supposed to be for craft projects - aaaccckkkk!) but I will grab more on my next Wally World run.
They feature our Clear Acetate Boxes and you will get two of these darling pumpkin treat holders out of one box.
I had a blast creating this cute-pa-tutie and will certainly be making many more ~
Enjoy the video...

Happy Halloween Crafting,

Boo Too You | Halloween Card ~

Hi Everyone,
I have a fun project and even better idea to share with all your friends and neighbors...
Recently while scrolling through Facebook I saw a post from a nice gal who said she was making cards for people who decorated there homes for Halloween! I thought - GREAT IDEA!!! In our house, I LOVE to decorate for all the holidays and if you head over to my YouTube Channel you can see the video from yesterday is my 2019 Halloween Home Tour. 
Decorating takes a lot of time and effort and I know I want to say thank you to my neighbors that put the effort into making their homes look festive.

I am going to keep these in my car along with a pen so I can leave a quick note at any home that deserves to be thanked for making the neighborhood festive.

Happy Halloween,

New Stampin’ Up! Goodies!!!

Hi 👋 Crafty Friends, 
I just received my first of several Holiday Catalog products and they are amazing! Stampin’ Up! Is really doing some incredible things in the craft industry and they are the FIRST to have Reversable Stamps!!!

The holidays will be in full swing before we know it so be good to yourself and get a head start so you can relax and enjoy everything as it was meant to be.

Happy Holiday Crafting,

Ep. 641 ~ 2019 Halloween Decor Home Tour ~

It's that time of year again...
Halloween is right around the corner and that means our house is all decked out in cuteness and spookiness!
If you have been following me for awhile you know I LOVE to decorate for all the holidays and my Home Decor videos are some of my most viewed.
Not only do we decorate the inside but we also do the outside and have a ginourmus spider (eeeeekkkk!) that my husband made years ago that is walking down the side of the house - check it out!
I hope this tour gives you some Halloween decorating inspiration and gets you in the Halloween spirit!

Halloween Hugs,

Episode 47 I am Bustin' a Move on "LIVE" w/Regis & Kelly!

Hi Everyone,
This silly clip showed up today and I thought I would share this and hope you get a giggle out of it as much as we do! I ended up getting invited back two weeks later to the Regis and Kelly Show again and I brought handmade gifts for Regis, Kelly and Gelman - both Kelly and Regis held there gifts up on the air and said thank you, how fun is that?
I have had such a fun and crazy ride, I love this thing called life!

Happy Hugs,

Ep. 640 ~ Stampin' Up! Card Share | Holiday Catalog 2019

Hi Crafty Friends,
Today I am sharing all the great cards and projects that we made over the weekend at our Stampin' Up! Team Meeting and Shannon West from the Stampin' Up! Home Office was joining us! I felt ike I knew her already ad she gave each of us a yummy Halloween treat that you will see in this video. 
I am apart of the larger group - "Stampahowlics" Team and our wonderful leader and Upline is Janie Weightman!
It's always so inspiring and tons of fun when we get together to make cards and inspire each other with fresh ideas and super cute products.
If you have ever thought about joining Stampin' Up! either for the discount and ability to get new products before everyone else or are looking to make some extra income, I would LOVE for you to join my team and be connected to the larger Stampahowlics group. No matter where you are in the US - I have a Facebook Team Page, The Happy Stamper Facebook Page, The Happy Stamper Blog, The Happy Stamper YouTube Channel and if you are local to me in Chicago - quarterly Get-Togethers to share ideas. PLUS, you can attend the big group meetings as well and boy they are jam packed and fun.
Let me know if you have any questions, all the links to my online store are here on my blog as well as a "Join My Team" button that will link you to my Stampin' Up! site.
The funnest time of the year is quickly approaching for gift giving and card making, I hope this gives you some clever ideas to show you how simple it is to make handmade goodies.

Have a Happy Day as my mom would say...
