Name in a frame, a super GIFT!

Yesterday was so fun! Sara and I drove to register her at College. She got her classes all set and we had a fun time learning about college life. Well the things that the admin says, nothing from the mouths of those kiddies. Anyway, we took off at 6am, driving til 9 then we were in Morris all day. At 3 we left, took Sara to a friends in Zimmerman for the night, drove home here and picked up two friends for a drive over to Cottage Grove. WHEW! Got home around 9:30? Well then I just crashed...
Tons to do today, with the kids home including my nephew Mathew. They have a super long list of chores as I have lots of makeup work from being gone yesterday.
Saturday Maddie had a birthday party, or was it SUNDAY? I think the older i get...well you know:) ha ha ha, anyway for her friends birthday party I whipped up this NAME IN A FRAME! They are so super easy to do, with coordinating everything from TAC. I started with the Miss Moxie papers which are the easiest for me to use. Surely there are faves for everyone, and this is mine. Bright colors, perfect with black and white for contrast its amazing! This is one longer scrap of Miss Moxie that I had. I stamped her name and my FAVE SWIRL in black NOIR PALETTE ink, highlighted a few dots with my WHITE EXREME GEL PEN and added a shadow to the letters with my GREY TOMBOW MARKER. Seriously, I buy frames whenever I see them on clearance usually paying no more than $2. I have a box of them all the time so can whip out a quick gift anytime!

This is one of my most wanted classes so yes, there will at at least one this fall with the detailed letters and tags. There are some in my stampdog gallery if you want to take a peek at my old site:) Here is the link STAMPDOG

My BFF Heather is off for a cool show today in Kansas City, and called me for mapquest directions before 7am this morning. GOOD LUCK HEATHER! She is rocking the entire country with her button creations. This is the header I swiped to show you today. Its some of her fantastical work. If you are coming to seminar? Hey you just have to get some of her work ordered and WOW its so affordable for hand made custom designed jewelry. Wait til you see her pandants. And to think, its all from BUTTONS! Thats just crazy...

She is one amazing girl! GOOD LUCK GIRLFRIEND!



Well I am off to stamp and sew all day. There are about 30 bags to finish for seminar orders and I leave for Heathers on Tuesday morning. I am SO EXCITED ABOUT THAT!
