We're back ~

We just got back from a fun family trip to Oregon. It was fun to get together with my sisters and their families for a Wedding Party. Thanks Ardith and Brian for all the fun. We took Michelle and little Kymber with us. She was such a good little traveler, even on the last 12 hours in the car day. We took the little drive to view the waterfalls on the way over. This is Kristine at Horse Tail Falls.
Today I got the last of the trim painted from our remodel project. And we have the room all put back together. I love it! I'll post pictures later this week. Now I need to go get some fun projects done, it has been awhile.

Trip to the Mountains ~

Finally, the snow is all gone on Rod's Mountain bike trails so we went to the canyon yesterday. We took Kristine and Michelle, Kymber and Cassidy (my basset hound) with us. This was the first time we have been back up since Rod flipped off the bike last August and broke his collar bone. It was good to get back. Little Kymber loved hiking, I think she will be her Daddy's girl. Of course we couldn't get through the day with a little drama. While we were stopped to take pictures of Kymber and the wild flowers (they are on Michelle's camera so I can't post them today), Cassidy went and rolled in a huge, fresh cow pie. YUCK!!! She was gross, all green and slimey. We headed her back to the trail head and got the leash on her, then we hauled her to a creek to try and clean her up. She wasn't real clean, but better than before. Then we tied her to a tree to dry off and she proceeded to dig a big dirt hole to roll around in. Really this was better than before, because we just had a really dirty dog that didn't smell quite as bad. She got to ride in the back of the trailblazer and I led her promptly to the shower when we got home. Rod had to soap her up about 4 times, but she did come clean and we can stand to be around her again. We left her smelly ruined collar behind and found her a pretty new pink one today. I think it is probably a good thing that we don't have a picture of her, because it's not something I want to remember. Rod has another route planned for next friday so we will be out again, but I think Miss Cassidy will be on a leash this time.

Stampin' Up! news ~

Here is a copy of a letter I just sent to my Stampin' Up! customers. If you would like to be on my list and get emails directly, just contact me.


I hope all of you are enjoying your summer. Stampin' Up! is getting ready to introduce a NEW catalog.

But before that comes out there is a new RETIRED LIST. These Stamp Sets are available to order until August 10th. I will be putting in one last group order for this catalog on July 28th. Doing a group order like this will make shipping just 10% of your order instead of having to meet the $6.95 shipping minimum by yourself.

Also you will want to check out this next link. (Look for this link on my blog on July 1st.) Stampin' Up! has expanded their Definitely Decorative line to include Wall D├ęcor Vinyl. There are both images and quotes. These are available for customer order beginning July 1st.

I still have a few of the Spring Summer Collection Idea Books. This is a great resource book for fun card and layout ideas. If you would like to get one of these Idea Books before they are gone, I will be including one with each $25 order (before shipping and sales tax) until they are gone.

The NEW catalog will be available on August 11th. If you would like to reserve one of the first copies let me know and I will add your name to the list. They will be FREE with a $50 order or $5.00 for just the catalog.

Michelle is planning to host a New Catalog Workshop out in Arco sometime in August. Let her know if you will be able to join us. There will also be a New Catalog Workshop in Idaho Falls too. I will start ordering a few sets from the new catalog in July, so you can get a peek at what is coming up.

Be sure and share this email with your friends. If they place an order you will get to pick a stamp from my freebie basket.

Be sure and check my blog for updates and sneak peeks as I get in new products.

Happy Stamping,


I didn't get any crafting done last week. I was in California for a Nephew's wedding and next week we will be in Oregon for the big wedding party with family. It will be fun to enjoy a few days with family. Here is a cute picture of two of my nieces at the wedding.

Magnolia Bookmark ~

This was a fun little project. It's a bookmark for the Tilda & Co. Challenge Blog.

Enjoy your weekend,


They're here ~

Yep! They just arrived. Only 10 days shipping from Sweden. I thought that was pretty good. So you can expect to see a lot of these little cuties in my projects this summer.

It was such a fun afternoon with my girls. This card has Basic Grey papers, Prima flowers, SU! ribbon and cardstock, Copic markers and Magnolia Stamp. Thanks for the fun sketch!!

My first Magnolia card ~

Here is my first Magnolia card. Gill from England sent me some stamped images to play with until my stamp order comes from Sweden. She sent the cutest card too. I'll have to put up a picture of it too. Thanks Gill! That was such a fun envelope to get in the mail.
