What do I do besides eat, sleep, work, and stamp?

I LOVE to bake!  Let's be clear about this, baking is NOT the same as cooking.  Cooking is a chore, something that you have to do to make food to stay alive.  Baking is optional, and you made things that people enjoy eating, that you can give as gifts, and that make the house smell good!

For the last year and a half I've been learning to make macarons.  Macarons are a labor of love.  They are seriously temperamental.  You can make a batch of shells one day that are perfect and then make a batch the next day in exactly the same way and they go wonky on you!  But no matter how they look they still taste just might not want to give that batch away as gifts!

I wanted to make some to take to the Mills for Thanksgiving.  I wanted a try a new flavor or combination that I haven't tried before, something fall-ish.  I found a recipe for S'mores macarons on pinterest.  They looked wonderful and graham cracker shells sounded fun.  Also, the recipe used homemade marshma…

It's Online Extravaganza time!  Don't snooze; you lose!

Amazing Swaps

The swaps at the November team meeting were great!  Everyone really outdid themselves this month.
Kay and I used new stamps and get a little sneak peek of Occasions and Sale-A-Bration!

I LOVE this chicken! How cute is she with that crazy hair?

Kay made a gorgeous card with the dragonfly stamp and thinlit.  She used the new amazing bokah paper, too.

Don't you think the team did a great job?  And only a couple of Christmas cards...I think we are all getting burned out on Christmas.  I think we've been stamping Christmas since August!  Maybe it just seems that way.  LOL

MY Christmas Cards?

So, I realized tonight that I don't have any Christmas Cards!!  So, I started looking through my cards and stamping stuff.
And I found all of these gorgeous cards that are my samples from my Christmas Card classes!  Thankfully no one will compare their cards and know that I sent them all different cards!  So here they Christmas Cards.  Or at least part of them.

I know the I've made a few more.  When I find them, I'll update this post.
It's so much fun to look back at what you've done!

Joyful Stamping,

OnStage2016 - Kansas City

I've just recovered from OnState Live in Kansas City!  We had such a good time...from getting picked up in the custom outfitted stamping Tahoe to piling my stuff in the living room and taking a nap!
My friends M'Liss and George Collins went with me to Kansas City.  George custom designed a table for us in the Tahoe so we could stamp all of the way!  Seriously, how cool is that?  Look at me below...I'm using the Big Shot!

So much room to stamp!  We made all of my swaps for OnStage, designed and cut my shoebox team swap, and made keychains for everyone!

Oh, and M'Liss brought OJ and bubbly to make Mimosas!  Look at her stamping and sipping!

Here are the cute keychains we made.  I cut out the circles using the Big Shot and stamped with the Star of Wonder stamp set.  I added a little white pom-pom trim and some silver glitter ribbon and viola! an inspiring key chain.

We drove north with only one potty break, and no lunch I had to have some Kansas City comfort f…

Displays for OnStage Local - Kansas City

I was selected to be a display stamper of the Kansas City OnStage Local event.  Thanks Stampin' Up!

Here are the samples that I made.  I ended up making three cards and the scrapbook page from other stamp sets because I just ran out of ideas!  LOL
