Neat! Sweet! Petite!

My youngest daughter has a very creative imagination. At 13 years old, she came up with the idea for this Halloween costume all by herself.

Mind you... She had never seen an episode of The Addams Family before! I had to find an episode on YouTube so she could see how Cousin Itt "walks and talks!"

She was quite a hit in the neighborhood with the parents. Many stopped her and asked if they could take her picture. :) Most of the younger kids didn't quite "get it." LOL!

The costume took 6 skeins of yarn for us to make and she wore it for about 2 1/2 hours before she couldn't take the heat anymore. Literally. It was about 75 degrees outside, but under that carpet, I'm sure it felt more like 105 degrees! She did good, though! And she had a great time!

This week, I received two Halloween RAKs.
Mary Ann sent me this:

Aren't those dry embossed trick-or-treaters just adorable? She added chalk to make them pop and inside she used her Cricut to cut letters to spell "BOO." It's just too cute!! Thank you, Mary Ann!

Bonnie S. sent me this little jack-o-lantern:

I just love how she colored it! She stamped some spooky ghosts, too. Very nice, Bonnie! Thanks!

I hope you all had a great Halloween and enjoyed lots of treats and no tricks! :) We had lots of little princesses and Spidermen! We saw one "Obama" and several witches and Elmos.

Have a great weekend and thank you for visiting!

Because Someone You Know

There are signs posted around here on post campaigning for donations for CFC (Combined Federal Campaign, an annual thing they do get people to donate to various charities). The signs say something like,

It's an LED sign that flashes the words in those increments and it always kind of creeps me out when I read it like that.

This month on Splitcoast Stampers, the Cards for a Cause Challenge is to send cards to Chemo Angels. In fact, the whole theme over at Splitcoast Stampers this month, is "Pink," for Breast Cancer Awareness.

I believe most of us are touched in some way by cancer, whether it is breast cancer or some other kind of cancer... and whether we have battled the cancer ourselves, or it was someone very close to us.

Eight years ago today, I lost one of my very best friends to cancer. He also happened to be my big brother. I don't have a digital photo to share right now, but I'll find one soon. He was an amazing person that is still very much with us today. I see him and hear him everywhere we go and I miss him very much. He was a very loving Dad to five children, a great best friend, so smart, so funny, and just so much fun to be around. He considered himself to be a blacksheep of sorts, though I disagreed with him wholeheartedly.

I could not figure out why I've lost my mojo, but I guess this is it...I haven't been feeling well, I've got the stress of this big move coming up, and I miss my big brother.

Here's to you, "Kaki"... I know you're up there & I know you're looking out for me. I miss you Every.Single.Day.

My sheep is not black (it's pink in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month), but you get the idea. ;)

Stamps: Saltbox Studio
Paper: Georgia Pacific White, Basic Grey, Bazzill
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, Copic Markers

Accessories: Robin's Nest Dew Drops, May Arts Double Sided Ribbon, Spellbinders Oval Nestabilities, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder

To those of you warriors who have fought and won the war against cancer, I salute you!

To those of you warriors who are fighting the war against cancer, keep up the fight! We are praying for you!

I thank you for visiting and hanging in there with me!

I hope you're having a great week!

Birthday RAKs

Can you believe it's almost November already?! I mean, really! Where does the time go?! Halloween is Friday! That means Election Day is next Tuesday, a week later is Veteran's Day, a couple of weeks after that will be THANKSGIVING!!! And then, of course, we are ALL ready for Christmas, right?... 59 more shopping days to go!!

Hello? Is this thing on?... Tap! Tap! Tap!

Ok so... My daughter's birthday is November 21st and Karen B. sent her this cute pink & purple (her FAYYYvorite color!!!!) polka dot card:

It took 5 or 10 minutes of pleading with her to convince her to let me borrow it to take this photo! She did not want to let go of it - she just loved those colors so much! :)

Karen also sent my hubby a birthday card... Hubs also has a birthday in November (it's quite a festive month for us!). I just love this truck image! Our pastor up in Alaska had a truck like this that was restored and so nice...

Inside the card, here's what she wrote...

I just thought this was SO FUNNY I darn near lost it!

Thank you, Karen!!

Now... I still haven't gotten to stamp or do a single creative thing. :( Yeah. I know, right?! SO... do me a favor, wouldja'?... Please?

Go forth... And be creative... for me.

I've got cleaning and such to do. (sad, I know)

90 DAYS!!

That's IT! I only have 90 DAYS LEFT!

SO much to do... SO little time...

Got to make time to stamp, right? Must.

Thanks for visiting!

Autumn Colors

Here in Hawaii, we don't get many chances to see Autumn colors in the form of Nature's work. The weather pretty much stays the same year-round, with the exception of the rainy season up here in what they call the "Mauka" or mountainside area of the island.

Holly sent me this beautiful Halloween RAK this week with all of the beautiful colors of the holiday. I just love that brayered background! She's a very talented stamper - with a blog... go on over and visit! :) No stamping for me this week yet... Maybe today. I've been busy cleaning and sorting... Listing things on eBay and Craig's List to lighten our household goods shipment. I've been putting this off because I hate to part with any of these things! :'( But we just can't go over our weight limit!

I've listed several auctions for stamps, alterable items, Sizzix, Stampin' Up!, Close To My Heart, Punches, Dies, Ink Pads, etc. Many of these items are new. Click here to go to my "About Me" page. to see all of these auctions.

Anyway! I've got a sinus infection so bear with me for a few days until I get past this, please! Thanks for your patience! And thanks for visiting!

I hope you're having a great hump day!

Joom (Challenge)

Good morning! :)

This past Saturday's Inspiration Challenge over at SCS came from this Etsy store called Joom (what a neat name!). When I clicked over to check it out... I just fell in love with her stuff! Those colors are SO pretty! It wasn't too difficult to find inspiration there!

So here's the photo I chose for my inspiration: (Go figure on the colors, right? LOL)And here's my card: Stamps:
Stampin' Up! Always (I think this will be one of my long-time standing favorites for a very, very long time!)
Stampin' Up! Baja Breeze, Bazzill Bling Brown, Basic Grey Offbeat
Stampin' Up! Chocolate Chip Craft Ink
Clear Detail Embossing Powder, Stampin' Up! Ticket Corner Punch, May Arts Ribbon, Stampin' Up! Dimensionals (THANK YOU, TERI!)

Well, I hope your week is off to a fantastic start wherever you are! Find time to stamp this week and send a card to someone you've been thinking of but maybe just haven't had a chance to call or write in a while. It'll brighten your day AND theirs! :)

Thanks for visiting!

Mojo Monday


As promised, here's the card I finally got around to making with Julee Tilman's Mojo Monday Sketch (56) yesterday.
Here's her sketch:

And here's what I came up with: (Isn't that Bazzill Bling gorgeous?!) A close-up view of the dimension on the front of the card:

I just adore that Martha Stewart butterfly punch.

Verve Blacktie Birdies
Stampin' Up! Basic Black, Bazzill Bling, Georgia-Pacific White, Basic Grey Urban Prairie Meadow
Paper Trey Ink Perfect Match Aqua Mist
Circle Nestabilities, Stampin' Up! Ticket Corner Punch, Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch, Bling, Bella Bling, Copic Atyou Spica Glitter Pen

Well, I hope your weekend was a good one. I can't believe mine went by so fast! I got a lot done as far as organizing and sorting goes. I'm not finished by any means, but I'm really close. And that's good enough for me for now. :) Hey! I've gotta pace myself, right? ;)

Well, it's Sunday, so that means Army Wives & Desperate Housewives are on tonight!

Thanks for visiting!

Saturday, October 18, 2008


That means "Thank You!" in Frog. I think.

Teri sent me this ADORABLE RAK this week and her timing could not have been more perfect.

I'd had the worst day with a horrible night's sleep, dealing with bad drivers, long lines at the gas pump and everywhere I went, then had to go to the doctor at Tripler (the big Army Hospital here), which is always great fun, and finding parking up there is always like riding a carousel at the fair.... just driving around and around until someone decides to leave so you can take their spot. Of course, waiting an hour and a half to get a prescription filled (or I should say, waiting an hour and a half to be told that they don't have the meds to fill your prescription!), well that was a BLAST! And then there was the traffic coming home, which I always say feels more like being in a Mardi Gras parade. I feel like I should be doing my "princess wave" and throwing beads out the windows to the other cars because we're moving SO S.L.O.W.!

Boy! Talk about a tangent! Let's just say it was a bad day and I was a real grump when I got home! Everyone just loved being around me. But she turned all that around!! She sent me some really happy mail! Not only did she send me this lovely card, but I had mentioned (whined) to her that I was running out of dimensionals LOL! and she sent me some! What a sweetheart! I'm so lucky to have her! Thank you, Teri! You really made my day!
So, sorry I haven't been around much this week, but my lack of sleep and grumpiness haven't made me very creative... nor have they made me very good company as you can see. :)

I'm coming around, though. I Promise! I have been cleaning and sorting my stamping stuff... weeding through stuff I want to sell and throw out before the big M.O.V.E. and just trying to re-organize the neglected things. This process is always good for my creative side. I got to stamp a little bit tonight... just long enough to create something for this week's Mojo Monday. (Late, don'tcha' think? LOL!) I'll post that tomorrow after I've uploaded the photo and gotten a chance to edit it a little.

Well, I hope you're all enjoying a relaxing weekend where you are. It's another wet weekend here in Hawaii, but we're getting caught up on some household tasks that we've been putting off, so that's good.

Thanks for visiting!

EEK! and another Cupcake!

Do not be fooled by the cute, innocent look of this creature.
Though this is not the ACTUAL creature that has been heard around our house, I'm sure he looks something like this one. All of the cats in the neighborhood (there are six or seven last time I checked) and mouse traps (four) and exterminators (two) cannot catch this little fella'... And boy, does he like to party once everyone has called it a night! I sure wish he'd find it in his heart to move on so we could get a little peace and quiet around here. We haven't had a good night sleep in ages!

Anyway! I mustered up a little mojo to give Taylor's Sketch my best try. Here's her sketch:

And here's what I came up with:

The different sized circles were a bit of a challenge for me, but I don't know if that's just because I was so sleep-deprived or because I was trying to watch a movie and stay awake at the same time. LOL! Well, I think the colors coordinate anyway. I hope they do.

Lovely Labels

I had a little time to try my hand at Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge:
Here's my card:
I apologize for the lighting in my photos. I have a great camera and I always wait until mid-morning to take my shots, with natural light, but this is what I've been getting lately. It's winter here in Hawaii (LOL!) so it's been cloudy and rainy for days on end. On a good note, SURF'S UP out at North Shore if anyone's planning on heading up this way... (just thought I'd mention that...)

Stampin' Up! Lovely Labels

It's A Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!

Ya' know, I was just about to post that it was a great football weekend (Georgia beat Tennessee, Texas beat Oklahoma, Florida beat LSU, Hawaii beat Louisiana Tech... Leilehua High School, my daughter's alma mater and defending state champion, won the division title...)
I could not believe it.
In overtime no less.
The boys.
The Cowboys lost.
In overtime.

In other news...
Here's my little paper pumpkin patch! :D
I got the idea from another very talented stamper's blog... who I would love to give credit to, but I can't remember where....
I'll find it and edit this post. I promise.

The Paper Pumpkin creator has been found! :-D
I found them at Stamp Happy's site. Thanks, Jami!

All made with scraps and neglected paper from the hoards and stash...
Leaves were cut with Oval Nestabilities and run through the crimper.

Sugar coated brads are from Doodlebug... Fiber is from my stash - remember when fiber was all the rage a few years ago? Gosh - I almost threw a giant bag of fiber out... several times. In fact, I think I've probably gotten rid of yards and yards of it. Anyhoo... (sorry - I got off track there!) I'm glad I kept this little bit of brown for my pumpkin "vine!"

Ok. I've got to run and get dinner started. Baked ziti! Yum!

I hope y'all had a great weekend! Ours was especially long - the military got a four-day weekend so I get to enjoy the hubs extra! :) I'd like to thank Mr. Christopher Columbus for that. :)

Mini Pizza Box Fun

On Monday, there was a Challenge (sometimes I just can't resist those) posted over at Split Coast Stampers to created these adorable Mini Pizza Boxes. Jen Del Muro created the original one for Scor-Pal using a template you can get from this site.
I had an idea to create one of these to get a head start on Teacher gifts for Christmas. (I've got teachers on the brain this week for a couple of reasons... it being INTERCESSION, plus a friend of mine, who is a teacher, had a rough week, so I've just had her on my mind.)


What I created was this...
Cornish Heritage Farms Owl wearing his cute little Santa hat. (I love that sleepy little look on his face! I feel like that too right now.)

When you open it up, this is what you see...
I made 3 scalloped note cards with my scalloped circle nestabilities (3 3/4" x 3 3/4") and the smaller CHF Owl stamp.
I also made a little gift card holder...

Here's a better look at the note cards. You can see the texture from the Cuttlebug embossed front layer. I cut a slit in the center of the card to run the American Crafts ribbon through so I could tie it.
I ran that whole gift card holder through the Cuttlebug Embossing folder to get that look.
Yum-Oh! (As Rachel Ray would say)

Cornish Heritage Farms "U R A Hoot", Paper Trey Ink Polka Dot Basics
Paper Trey Ink Pure Poppy, Stampin' Up! Chocolate Chip, Georgia-Pacific White
Ranger Distress Ink Black Soot, Copic Markers, Chocolate Chip Craft
Cuttlebug Swirl Embossing Folder, Clear Embossing Powder, 1 3/8" Circle Punch, Scallop Circle Punch, Circle Nestabilities, American Crafts Ribbon, Fiskars Threading Water Punch, Dimensionals

Well, gotta run... Literally! I hope you're having a fab-O day!

Get some stamping done already, will ya'! :-D

Gift Box in a Bag

Diana Gibbs is a master at making these adorable Gift Boxes in a Bag. She made up a tutorial so that even people like me (who need three tries to make a Stationery Box) can make one. :)

I think I shoulda' left the Prima flower off the front of the bag, though. I covered up the cute little Penguin!!! Ugh!

Then I made a matching card with a sketch from Jen Del Muro's site:

Here's my card:

Imaginisce Surfer Penguin
Imaginisce, Cardstock from Die Cuts With A View & Georgia Pacific White
Versafine Onyx Black, Copic Markers, Close To My Heart Topiary

All I have to say is... Thank GOD it's Friday! I can't understand why this week has seemed so long... Maybe because it's been INTERCESSION? I dearly love my children... I really, really do...

According to Wikipedia, "intercession" means "prayer for the living" or "prayer for the departed." I'm not sure which I am right now. HA HA! Kidding! It also means "prayer for the Saints" which I'd like to think all of the teachers up at the Middle School are for putting up with all of those students on a daily basis are! LOL! But, "intercession" also means "break between sessions." So, take your pick.

So, friends, that wraps up the lesson for today! :) I hope you're having a fabulous Aloha Friday and have great plans for the weekend!

Thanks for visiting!

Stationery Box

Well, I blame it on the medication (LOL!) JUST KIDDING! But I tried like three times before I finally got it right. (Third time's a charm, right?) Well, it was for me this time, anyway!
I know everyone has been making these.
And I know a lot of people were even using the Afternoon Tea Designer Series Paper (which I *Lurve*!) but I just had to be a copycat and do it, too. Sorry! I had a very little bit left and had to do it. It's a gift for my mom, who loves every little thing I make for her and keeps and uses everything. I swear!

I used the Pocket Silhouettes stamp set, which I think went well with the paper here.
I also used the Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, the Scallop circle punch, and a Sizzix Tag die. The organza ribbon is from Really Reasonable ribbon and the Dark Chocolate Swiss Dots ribbon is from Paper Trey Ink.

Off to pick up the hubs for lunch...

I hope you're having a great day!

I found this adorable set of stamps by Impression Obsession. I love cupcakes (real and otherwise). Thankfully the stamps are calorie-free. :)

Impression Obsession Cupcakes
Stampin' Up! Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, Paper Trey Ink, Sweet Blush
Palette Noir Black, Copic Markers
Accessories: Cuttlebug Swiss Dots & Swirl Embossing Folders, Paper Trey Ink Swiss Dots Ribbon (Sweet Blush), Stampin' Up! Ticket Corner Punch, Circle Nestabilities

Well, I spent most of yesterday up to my eyeballs trying to organize my craft area. My craft area is currently one-third of my living room. Ugh. I totally hate this arrangement and I miss the days of having my own craft room. I have way too much stuff to work this way and end up having to store things in three different rooms. Not fun. I didn't get much done yesterday at all. I'm so not looking forward to the actual moving portion of this move.

Yes, we have movers who come and pack it all up and move it for us, but the thought of them touching my stamps and papers and stuff and having all of that in transit and storage for weeks on end just makes me go into a panic attack.

I actually ship my scrapbooks myself at our personal expense. The movers never touch those. I've heard too many horror stories of wedding and baby scrapbooks being packed and lost to allow ours to disappear. My husband thinks I'm crazy, but I just give him THE LOOK and tell him, "Our babies are in there!" and he'll usually relent.

Postage has gone up quite a bit since our last move, though, so we'll see what his reaction is this time. Also, we were able to carry more luggage with us on the airplane. Now they are limiting you to one suitcase, I believe, per person. We'll see what it's like when we actually fly. We've got some time before we have to start worrying about it.

I hope you're having a great day! We're halfway through Intercession here in Hawaii! :-D Wii Fit is giving our girls a great workout!

Gotta Get It

I love Nicholas Sparks... And I'm a sucker for a man in uniform... A particular man in uniform... But still.

Nicholas Sparks has a new book out "The Lucky One" and I've got to get it. It looks like it's going to be a good one! It's about a Marine! I'm torn between waiting for the local library to get it and saving my money... Or rushing out and buying it! Ugh! I'm so impatient!

We have a big move coming up (or in our house that's a four-letter word so I should maybe I shouldn't say it, but spell it...) M-O-V-E {sigh!} So I really should be saving our pennies for that.

It's TORTURE, I tell ya'! Hmmph!

Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge

I know it's Monday.

It's the first day of "Intercession" or Fall Break. (What is "Intercession" anyway?) That means there is a house full of 12 year old girls here and I'm lucky to be posting. And my husband is lucky to be at work. Right? LOL!

So here's my version of Beate's Weekend Sketch...

Wait. Here's the sketch. (I never said I was in my right mind. Sheesh!)

And HERE is my version of the sketch... I'm rockin' it Christmas style heh!:

C.C. Designs Rubber Stamps Lucky's Christmas Wish
Stampin' Up! Chocolate, Soft Sky, Basic Grey Offbeat, Georgia Pacific White
Palette Noir Black, Copic Markers
Cuttlebug Swirl Embossing Folder

I just love that little puppy! 'Cause he doesn't chew shoes! LOL! Actually my puppy doesn't chew shoes (or carpet) anymore. She learned REAL quick that was a no-go in our house. And my puppy isn't really a "puppy" anymore. She still acts like a puppy most of the time, chasing the broom when we're trying to sweep (that's funny stuff right there - I don't care who ya' are!).

ANYway! It just got really quiet so I better go check things out and make sure everything's okay with the girls. Oops! I spoke too soon! :) All is well again! :)

I hope you're having a great week of INTERCESSION wherever you are! And I mean that in the most sincere way. Really.

World Cardmaking Day

In the South, they say you can say anything about a person as long as it's prefaced by "Bless his heart!"
Well, my husband... "Bless his heart!" supports my stamping addiction completely (for the most part anyway).
When I mentioned to him that yesterday was "World Card Making Day" he made the typical nods and grunts that would be expected of a man. ;)
Later, referring to yesterday, he called it first, "World Federation Stamping Day," then, "National Scrapbook Stamping Day," and then, "City, County, National, World Federation Stamping, Scrapping, Card Making Day."

What a joker.

When I woke up, there was a card waiting on my desk for me... made by him, with scrap paper from my trash can. I couldn't believe it.

DH: I made it for you! For National World Card Making Day!

Me: Wow! That's great!

DH: (Big Grin)

Me: How many tools did you use?

DH: Four!

Me: Four?! Really? Which four?

DH: Scissors, my thumb nail to score like you use that Scor-Pal thingy, Scotch tape, and a pen!

Me: I'm so proud of you!

DH: Me, too! I got all of the paper from your trash can!

How can I not love this man? :-D

I spent a few hours making cards for deployed troops. Gina K hosted a promotion on her blog and it is very near and dear to my heart. I know this means a lot to those guys over there to receive these cards in the mail and I'm honored to participate. I created this stack of 20 Christmas cards to send out.

Cornish Heritage Farms Heart Warmers
Prism Green, Gold unknown, Georgia Pacific White
Palette Noir Black, Close To My Heart Markers, Topiary, Holiday Red, Chocolate
Handmade Envelopes

And thennn...

(Because 20 cards was not enough ya' know!)

I had to create something using this Unity stamp. I bought it weeks ago and had yet to use it. You know how that goes... HAD to have it... Anyway! I LOVE this quote! It is painted on the wall at Leilehua High School and I think it just means SO much. Really. I love it. And that paper! I cannot get enough of that paper. Basic Grey Offbeat. Seriously. I think I need a 12-step program.

Unity, Be the Change
Paper Trey Ink Dark Chocolate, Stampin' Up! Soft Sky, Georgia Pacific White, Basic Grey Offbeat
Stampin' Up! Chocolate, Stampin' Up! Blue Bayou
Bling, Circle Nestabilities, Stampin' Up! Corner Punch, Paper Piercer

And if the fact that yesterday was WORLD Card Making Day was not enough... I mean come on! Like we need an event or occasion to stamp? Teri, a local gal who helps me with my SU! addiction {wink!} , sent me this CUTE!! card, which I got yesterday.

Thank you, Teri!!

So, now it's Sunday and the kids on the island are all out of school for Fall Break for the next week and a half. YAY!!!!

I hope you're having a great day!
