Happy Friday Friends ~

Greetings from New York crafty friends,
We arrived early this morning as our son has taken a job with West Point Military Academy in their Athletic Department. 
They want him to start next week so the push is on and we will officially pack the truck next Tuesday and head back out here.
I likely won’t be able to make a video tutorial next week but I did upload a cute Halloween 🎃 Treat Holder video yesterday so check that out for inspiration. 
Have a great weekend -

Ep.#663 ~ Halloween Pillow Box | Treat Holder

Howdy Crafty Friends,
I am having so much fun paper crafting with the Pillow Box Die! It makes creating treat holders a breeze and they look so professional.
Make sure you check out the video below so you can see a cool tip on how to add a layer of designer series paper so line up perfectly. It just pulls the whole project together.
I hope this gives you some fresh inspiration and if you'd like to purchase anything you see in this video, you can shop on my Stampin' Up! website.

Happy Halloweenie Hugs,

Ep. #662 ~ Easy Ink Pad Color Identification

Happy Saturday Crafty Friends,
Have you ever mistakenly inked up your stamp and then put it back down to reink in the wrong pad color? I know I have done this little boo-boo before nad it is a common mistake I have seen happen many times at classes.
I was really surprised when a few of my customers never knew how to mark your ink pads with the stickers provided so this doesn't happen so easily.
Check out my video showing you where you can find these little gems!

Have a wonderful weekend friends ,

Wish Me/Us Luck …

Wish me/us luck friends, in two short weeks we will be moving my craft room into its new home. Our oldest son Steve moved out and I will be moving everything in there. Thus returning my current space back into the workout 🏋️‍♀️ room it is initially intended to be. This isn’t even everything, closets are packed full to the gills and more is in the back storage room. 
I will be doing lots of destash boxes so keep your eye out for some great goodies to be available to purchase at rock bottom prices. 
It’s going to be a big one ~ *sigh*
