The tradition continues……Day 4….hurry on over to Alpha Stamps and leave a comment. One lucky winner gets a very generous Halloween stash to play with. Maybe it’ll be you!
As you may know, Alpha Stamps is one of my favorite sites to shop….they have stuff that you can’t find just anywhere. Well, each year, during the Christmas Holiday, they have a daily giveaway. This year is no different. Why not go on over and get yourself into today’s daily drawing! While you’re at it, check out the shop…you won’t be disappointed, I promise.
My apologies for being a wee bit tardy….Hope your Thanksgiving Day was filled with good food, good people, and good times. We spent the holiday with my sister and our family. She always puts on a wonderful spread. I don’t know how she coordinates it all.
Christmas is almost upon us. Are you ready? I’m not! Ha. In fact, this post will be a short one, as I need to get prepared. I love this time of year. I won’t get into the religious end of it…but I love the magic of it all.
I’ve made several projects, and greeting cards since I last posted, as well as participating in a Christmas ornament swap over at the Retro Cafe Art Gallery. Here’s a group of photos for your viewing pleasure. I apparently didn’t share a few Halloween items in my last post. Hope you don’t mind if I post them here :)
I also donated several crafty items to a local kitty cat rescue outfit in the area called Orange Street Cats. They put out a call to crafters to make donations so that they could sell items at local craft fairs. I made several Debrina Pratt “Tea Party” tins, bottlecap necklaces, glass bead magnets and several handmade greeting cards:
As always, I appreciate you stopping by, and until next time…..Peace.
Happy Halloween from our house to yours! Vanessa Valencia hosted a Halloween Party over at A Fanciful Twist. There are lots of participants with a ton of tricks and treats. If you haven’t stopped over, you really should!
Vanessa is once again sponsoring a Halloween Party over at A Fanciful Twist. I don’t think I’ll be posting my own party, but I sure as heck will be attending hers. Why not go over and check out the announcement and see if you’d be interested in participating!
Why not hop on over and see what’s happening? I’m entering this card in Day 2′s challenge to use one of their stamps on a Halloween project and link up to their site by Friday.
I’ve said it before…I normally don’t buy over the internet….so in August, when we were in Las Vegas…I stopped by Viva Las Vegastamps and bought several rubber stamps. I’ve never seen so many rubber stamps in one place!!! I could have spent hours there…but my hubby and sister were with me :( The gal working did tell me to feel free and call if I’d like to place an order…that I didn’t have to order over the net. Wasn’t that nice of her? I’ll probably take her up on her offer one of these days. Anyhow….hop on over and check out their online store…I promise that you’ll be in awe.
In keeping with the Halloween theme…I’ll leave you with a picture of our very own black cat. His name is Bear…because that’s what he looked like to me when he was little. I thought about changing his name to Shadow because he was always by his mama’s side :)
I thank you for stopping by, and until next time…..Peace.
Boy, time flies! There’s nothing much happening in this neck of the woods; but I’m not complaining. I’ve put up some Halloween decorations….and played Suzie Homemaker the other day….Our three tomato plants have yielded enough tomatoes for a dutch oven size batch of meat sauce…that’s in addition to passing out tomatoes to the neighbors and family members. Lets see… We traveled with friends to Hampton Beach, New Hampshire for the annual Seafood Festival …plus I’ve been pittering and puttering in my craft room…a card here and there…and an ATC or two….along with a few pages in my art journal. Woah! I take that back! I have been kinda busy :)
I look forward to the annual trip to the beach. It’s always held the week after Labor Day…it signifies the beginning of the Fall season for us. Always a good time. I am so grateful for our friends…a great bunch of folks.
I went to AC Moore today with a 55% off coupon and bought a Sizzix Big Kick. I’ve been wanting the Vagabond…but I refuse to pay $200. I was told that pretty much the only difference between the two is an electric plug. I hope so. The $46 price tag was the deciding factor. I’m going back tomorrow for some die cut cartridges….with another 55% off coupon. *does a happy dance*
Here’s a montage of things I’ve recently created:
First…here are the ATC’s I’ve sent off for the Retro Cafe Art Gallery swap:
I’ve also sent a Halloween ATC off as a swap to my new facebook friend, Denise in Canada:
I finished a spread in my Art Journal that I started a month ago. I love Stampotique stamps:
I’ve also started several more pages:
I’ve entered the Retro Cafe Art Gallery’s facebook page Halloween challenge to use their free digital sheet in a project. May I present “Poe’s The Raven”:
Guess I’ll close with a few of the cards I’ve made:
Had enough? Haha…..I won’t torture you anymore :) I thank you for stopping by, and until next time…..Peace
