Thank you all for your patience as I get ready for this new little boy to arrive in just 10 weeks.. I have lots of goals to accomplish, stamping included. So, I am putting my challenge to myself on here so you can all hold me accountable. We need to downsize our "STUFF..." LOL! Over the years I have bought tons of stuff and I clearly remember saying "Oh, I know I can make something cute with this." Well, that stuff has definitely accumulated and been made into NOTHING. So, my goal over the next few months is to do just that, make OH SO CUTE THINGS with my dollar store purchases.. As I get my office organized as well as the house I will be creating projects for gifts and classes, then I will share them with you. I am nervous about the challenge, but it will be good for me...

First up, I wanted to share some of the blogs I just added to my blog roll on the right... these are blogs from my Stamp Team members, so if you get a moment check them out! They are all creative ladies and I am blessed to know them!

I wanted to do something special for my hubby this year since it was our 10th Christmas together. We really didn't do much on our anniversary, so I thought it is NOW or never. One of my hidden talents is writing poems, well I thought... Hmmmm.. what if I wrote a poem to the tune of the 12 days of Christmas. Anyhow, that is just what I did, guess you have to know my crazy brain, LOL!!

I hope you get a kick out of this!!

I got the frame at the $1 store here and used a mix of supplies. I actually took the picture as well, check out my photography blog here.

I know the poem is hard to read, so if you want to know what it says here you go:


In our first year of marriage my True Love gave to me
A Ryder truck packed with all our goodies

In our second year of marriage my True Love gave to me
A fabulous trip to the island of Maui!

In our third year of marriage my True Love gave to me
Our first home to start our fam-i-ly
In our fourth year of marriage my True Love gave to me
All the love he could give his wife-ee

In our fifth year of marriage my True Love gave to me

In our sixth year of marriage my True love gave to me
His help to make my dreams reality

In our seventh year of marriage my True Love gave to me
Unending strength as we dealt with tragedy

In our eighth year of marriage my True Love gave to me
Our son and a full heart of glee

In our ninth year of marriage my True Love gave to me
All The love he showed our baby

On our tenth year of marriage my True Love gave to me
A decade full of many memories!!

THE Gift of BAKING!!

Okay these are not really stamped, but I wanted to quickly share another gift I put together for the Pastor's at our church from the MOPS program.

For those of you who know me well, you know I HATE baking. I would rather make a huge meal then bake. So, don't think tons of hours went into these because that would not be true. Needless to say the Pastor's were not complaining! It is the thought and for me and more importantly THE PRESENTATION!!!
