Little stamper

Stampin’ Up! is really a craft for all ages.

It doesn’t feel long ago that my little guy was this small. As we approach his 1st birthday in March, I have mixed feelings … I’m excited and thankful that I have a happy, healthy little man who is growing like a weed, but can’t help recall the year going by so fast!

We have had a ton of fun with his little friends. Here’s a butterfly made out of ten tiny toes and Stampin’ Up! re-inkers. Great idea for a “mommy group” or outdoor playdate.

Look at those cheeks!

My “upline” (Stampin’ Up! coach) Shirley made these party favor paints with the Something for Baby stamp set and Baby’s First framelits


Do you see him? Do you? Look closely!

I made this card for my brother’s birthday. The lumberjack actually reminds me of him. 😉 The inspiration came from a demonstration while I was attending Leadership in Orlando, Fla.

The Herd (the furry gang) is from the Occasions Catalog, and is super cute. This coming weekend is full of excitement for “my gang” …

Check back in for happenings of another day.

I have a name.

After joining my fellow Stampin’ Up! upline at Leadership, I have been pondering a catchy name for my Stampin’ Up! group. A name that encapsulates my own personality, my underlying roots and present interests. I’ve done it folks!



As some of you may gather, I come from a long line of farmers, dairy farmers to be exact, and I am quite proud of the fact. I feel that a name should reflect where you’ve been, where you’re going and a little bit of silly. These are what these words mean to me …

Cheese. Cheesy, silly, yummy, something you say when you are to smile … yep, check!

Crafters. Dreamer, imagination, gather with friends, create and inspire … perfect!
