Thanks so much to everyone that was involved in our Spring Craft and Craft Supplies Sale!!! And to Cindy for the great idea of doing it in the first place.... and of course, we couldn't have pulled it off at all without all the great customers that came out and made purchases!!!! Stay tuned for our Fall Sale where we will do the same sort of thing - with a focus on Christmas gift ideas as well.

Waiting at the Ferry

If I had to use the ferry to commute to work every day or every week, I can see how it would quickly lose its novelty. But for now, riding the ferries every 2 months or so, they're not so bad. And a sunny day sure helps to make the wait even better!

This is a first for us..... and here's how the conversation went:

me: "we have to pay for Scott now because he's 5, but Elise and Todd are still free."

Todd: "I'm not free!"

me: "Yes you are, you and Elise are both free."

Todd (a little more loudly): "I'm NOT FREE, I'm FOUR!"

Steve loves to get right in there and play on the playground!

THIS is what I'm doing right now.....

Sorting through a multitude of boxes that the man-in-brown just delivered to my door. He carried this whole stack at once!!!!!!

Found a card!

I just thought about this card... it was one I demonstrated at a workshop this month, and it was a make and take at another workshop. I don't think I've posted it yet, so even though I haven't stamped this week, I'm excited to have something to show you!!!

I used Groovy Guava paper, Ginger blossoms designer paper, and chocolate chip and Groovy Guava ink.

Tart and Tangy

I love this little set from the new SU! mini catalogue. Here are a couple projects with it - these are both done using markers directly onto the stamps.

This was a make and take from Kerry's last downline meeting... It is with the scratch 'n sniff technique (if you want to learn that technique, make sure you sign up for my pre-buy class on April 30th) Card size: 3X3

This card is a standard size (4 1/4" X 5 1/2") Don't you just love the Summer Picnic designer paper?! The "thank you" sentiment is from the "A Perfect Day" rub-ons.

Baby Card

Here's a really simple card we made at my Sale-a-Bration Delights class a couple weeks ago. We punched several of the scallop circles out and layered them to create faux chipboard. And the patterned paper is from the SU! Level 1 Hostess paper pack in Apricot Appeal. The stamp is stamped in 2 colours... first the apricot then the celery, and we cut out the apricot moon and glued it on the main piece. Add some ribbon and a bit of Dazzling Diamonds glitter, adhered with a 2-way glue pen, and we were done.

Scott is FIVE !!!

Unreal... they always say it will happen - that the years will fly by, and before you know it your kids will be all grown up.... but it is happening already! Now I have a five year old.

Here's a recap on our day. We had a little party for Scotty and he had a few little friends over. Over a month ago he said he wanted a "Toy Story" party... but do you think I could find anything Toy Story related in the stores when I looked this last week? Nope... so what do you do when you can't find the right theme on party supplies??? You make them!

Napkins stamped with the dinosaur from a retired SU! set called Toy Box....

"Pin the Tail on Rex" - a game I made up this morning, and the kids loved it!!!

And you get the kids to colour pictures from the movie printed from your computer!

Get a few of the toys that are in Toy Story and have them out for the kids to play with after they watch the movie!!!!

Scott and Todd playing with some new toys from the neighbour:

Elise didn't make it through dinner...

All in all, a fun but ever so exhausting day! The kids are all in bed asleep and it's not even 7:30 yet!!!!
