A rainy Sunday....

Good morning, everyone.  When I got up, I went to take the dogs outside.  Of course, they didn't want to go; heavens forbid that they get their little feet wet.   So mom (me) had to go outside and stand in the rain, I looked like an extra-large, dripping piece of really strange statuary.  But, it served the purpose....they will go out if I will.  When they were through, we all came back in, I grabbed a rather large towel, dried myself off first and then dried the three of them off.

I haven't been able to find any blog candy lately to let ya'll know about.  For two days now I have been moving my craft/yarn/sewing/card making supplies from one small room into a little bigger room.  I don't gave a lot of goodies, but I was surprised how much really small stuff was in there.  First and half of the second day was moving the big pieces of furniture.  I have repurposed two chest of drawers (one 3-drawer and one 6-drawer) into storage pieces, my bookshelf (only it will hold supplies while my books are on top of the larger chest of drawers).  Now I'm going through all that small stuff and trying to decide how to organize them.  Anyway, I hope to be finished today.  Wish me luck!

Each and every one of you have a blessed day.  I will try to find some goodies to post for you.  My craft table is set up again, so I can actually start making cards again by tonight (fingers crossed)....hooray!  'Bye for now.....

Sorry for those who were offended...

I have received negative feedback about my post about my Missy.  Well, I am not going to apologize.  Yes, this is meant to be a stamper's blog.  I have read on other blogs detailed info on personal illnesses, losses, among other things.  I stand firm on my memory to my Missy.

Sorry for the absence...

Born:  September 18, 2002
Heaven bound:  September 17, 2010

It is Sunday, 9/19, and it has been a while since I have posted.  Besides personal medical issues, I have had a very sick little dog.  This is my Missy girl.  She was born 9/18/2002 and headed off heaven bound 9/17/2010; just one day shy of her 8th birthday.  People ask me why I'm so upset about a dog...they say it is JUST a dog.  Well, she was my four-legged child.  I have three others, one is her daughter.  Kyla keeps looking for her mom and won't leave my side and I can't quit crying.  A friend of my daughter sent me the following poem so, Missy, this is for you!!  You took part of my heart with you, baby.

Until We Meet Again
by Raven

I see you moving slowly and your face it shows the years, but you are so very beautiful, in my eyes despite my tears.
And if my love could only hold you, forever by my side, I would never let you go, it hurts so much to say goodbye.

So today I love you best, more than words could ever say;
and in my arms I will release you, to be whole, to run, to play...

And someday when I move slowly, and my face it shows the years, I will turn to see my angel and there you'll be to ease my fears.

I'll stroke your head, you'll lick my face, we're overjoyed because we know,
our eternity has started and together we will go...

Love never ends, love never dies, it only waits...

Until we meet again....

Paper Wishes

Happy Saturday, everyone!  I just got an e-mail from Paper Wishes (one of my favorite sites) about their  Color Me paper.  This paper has a built in resist and embossed pattern.  It comes in 12 different patterns.  The video ( on this new product is great!  They mainly use distress inks, but you can use any inkpad, you can heat it slightly and add glitter, flocking or embossing powder.  In the video they show the use as well as the different looks you can get from just one pattern.  Check out the video....another great reason to grab your wallet (when you can!).

Card making materials...

Yes, I do realize that this blog is Stampers Online.  I am utilizing card making materials; will that redeem me?

I visit the Better Homes and Gardens website quite often and I am passing on this project from their website (  I saw this and a light bulb went off...they seldom do, so you better not miss this!  I have bought adhesive backed card stock and used it quite often, but this little stroke of genius never crossed my mind.

Cut your adhesive backed fabric to fit a picture frame you may have (or bought at the $ store).  Use a square punch a little larger than the area of a photo you would like to highlight.  Peel the adhesive backing off slowly attaching to frame backing and placing photos where you want them in your little square windows.  Voila!  A customized frame....and what's to stop you from further embellishing your frame.  We all have buttons, flowers, bling, etc., all over our craft rooms.

I am including a picture.....the copyright and credit belongs to Better Home and Gardens....check them out once in a while.
