Goodness! Where have the last two weeks gone?! We had a wonderful whirlwind of a trip to HSN and then when I got home, I got sick. I guess those 24-hour craft days combined with a crazy traveling schedule took it’s toll on me.
HSN was a blast! As always! I love going there. We always have a great time. Everyone is so nice there and the products did really well! It was so fun to watch Lisa present the Holiday Nifty Gifties I designed. Thank you to everyone who bought one! I hope you are receiving them and love them as much as I do! Please share what you make! I’d love to see!
Here’s a picture of Jennifer Duncan and I setting up tables at HSN. This was about 2 am, so we were a bit goofy!
Here’s another one of me, Lisa, and Brad Brusa (from Craftwell). Love these two so much! They are so much fun to work with!
I’ve been enjoying fall with my family and have been helping my daughter get ready for her first dance this coming weekend. She asked her date out by leaving a fake pumpkin on his porch filled with about 2000 tootsie rolls. He had to open all of the tootsie rolls to find the letters of her name (numbered, so they were easier to unscramble).
We used black vinyl and my Silhouette Cameo machine to add a face to the pumpkin and then this is the poem that she wrote to go with it.
I haven’t done much scrapping since I got back from HSN, but I do have a layout to share that I did awhile ago. I have a special place in my heart for daily deal sites, especially ScrapbookSteals.com. :) I bought the WRMK Jet Set collection and scrapped this two-pager using a Scrapbook Generation sketch as a starting point. I chose the green cardstock background to pick up the green color of the river in the photos.
I can’t believe how fast the kids are growing up … they look so little here and this was only three years ago! Time is flying!
I pulled out some letters from my stash and used orange microbeads to add texture to the word “windy”.
No, this bridge isn’t really called Windy Bottom Bridge … we just named it that because the public restrooms were porta-potty style and they were configured in such a way (I don’t quite understand it) where they vented outside to the canyon below … or something to that effect. It made for a very, windy bottom experience and was quite terrifying … you felt like you were going to be sucked into the canyon. YIKES! Okay … more info than you probably wanted to know … but if you ever visit Navajo Bridge (near Glen Canyon in Arizona), beware of the restrooms! It’s a strange experience.
I added some yellow enamel dots from my stash here-and-there, and a bit of washi tape from an older American Crafts Halloween collection.
Thanks for popping by! I hope you have a beautiful fall week! Enjoy the last few weeks of October! It’s my FAVORITE time of year and it passes too quickly!
Talk to you again soon!
