Where do Stamps go when they RETIRE!!!

A good question....one place they could go is to your home! Here it is, the 2008 Retired Stamp List! So now is the time to get any of those stamps that are on your wish list before their gone for good. There are a couple sets that Im shocked is retiring and some that Im shocked are NOT. There was also an annoucement about a new product line SU! is offering...I wont go into detail but I'll give you a hint...it involves decorating your home...hmm Cant wait to get my hands on that!

Onesie Card and New Chair!

I have been wanting a giant bean bag chair for as long as I can remember. I have alot of fond memories sitting in my Mama Sue's chair as a child growing up. Now after moving here to WA, I went over to a friends house whom had one and asked where she got it. She pointed me to the LoveSac web site..but sorry over $500 is just TOO much. So I did some surfing and came across the ComfySack web site. Now these prices were much more realistic! Almost $300 less!! So I couldnt resist and finally ordered my very own giant bean bag!! Here's my son Donovan modeling the chair. I just LOVE IT!!!! Next is the famous onesie card I keep seeing everyone making. So I went to this blog, and finally made one myself. My version isnt anything special. I was pretty much just trying it out and seeing if I could do it. It's alot smaller than I thought it was but pictures have a way of decieving you. I got asked my one of my BFs to make some baby shower invites. Though Im not sure if I want to do this card for that. Its alot of work to do alot of cards for..if it was for my actual BF, I wouldnt even think twice about the work but its for her brother's gf so maybe I'll do something alittle simpler.

Present to cheer up my best friend.

My best friend is lately having boy problems. This past week worst of all. It just drives me insane times like this being on the other side of the country and not able to take her out and cheer her up. So I put together this care package for her. I filled a box with some stamping supplies, a captain jack sparrow puzzle, and this frame. In the frame is a poem that she loves and I made the card to go along with it. The poem reads: Girls are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree. The boys dont want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they just get the rotten apples from the ground that arent as good, but easy. So the apples at the top think something is wrong with them, when in reality, they're amazing. They just have to wait for the right boy to come along, the one who's braze enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree to pick them.

Then I put- Never forget that you are amazing! ~Alana

I really hope it makes her feel better.

Wedding Annoucements

I had a friend tied the knot in April. She asked me to make her 20 odd wedding annoucements for her. I would make 5 one way then change it up, doing 20 of the same card will drive you insane!! LOL

Father's Day card

Sorry its been so long. Just havent really gotten around to stamping. I have been cleaning and getting ready for a garage sale which I probably wont have now that the weather looks rainy this weekend. Here's the Father's Day Card I made for my husband. You can find the instructions here. Im also going to get a Cabela's gift card to put in the inside. I think this idea is the coolest!! Would be really good for a boy graduation card as well.
