Found the Camera

OK, I have found the camera and uploaded the photos. I am going to try and get a few posted today and tomorrow. Most of the holiday stuff is out of date for current ideas, but maybe you can look ahead to next year.

Here is a picture of the small gift I gave my downline this year at our annual Holiday party. It was super simple but fun to do. The magnets are from the SU Convention last Summer. They match our Ginormous Flowers stamp set. I also gave them a ribbon charm from convention. They liked those a lot. Since SU ran out of those early I was lucky to get enough.

Also in December I went on a retreat with some fellow stampers. We each brought a project to share. Here is what I came up with. I wanted to use the Snow Blossom Punch in a not so snowy way. I first punched the snow blossom then used the scallop punch over the top of it. Then added lots of faux stitching. I also used the All in a Row set for some

After the holidays I headed to Palm Springs for the annual Stampin' Up! Leadership Conference. It was so nice to get away from the grey Seattle weather and sick kids. Love the kids, but I can do without the croup, fevers and snot. Yes I did say snot. :) In my spare time there we toured around a bit and I spent a lot of time resting and finishing book 7 of the Harry Potter series. Here is a picture of my 3D swap. I swear I have a picture of my card sample, but I still have to track that one down. Anyway these are altered Sweethearts Boxes covered with Cutie Pie paper and stamped with the Have a Heart Stamp Set.

That's it for right now. Tomorrow is Shawn's Birthday and I finally found an excuse to get him out of the house so I can wrap presents etc. More to come. I promise.

How Far Behind Can One Get????

How far behind can one person get? Hmmm, you'd think there would be an end but I haven't found it yet. Maybe I should stop adding things to my list until I catch up. It's been awhile since I posted. I have lots to share, I just need to get on the ball and get my pictures off my camera. That seems to be my biggest problem. I think far ahead and take pictures etc, but when it comes time to actually post I don't have the pictures I want to post on the computer, and the cord is missing or some other reason I can assign to my inability to remember to upload my photos. So that said, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, Happy Birthday and Happy Valentines Day- I think that catches me up. I will post some photos of the things I have done the last few months in a bit. Going to find my camera now. :)
