Yes, I stamped!

Well, I FINALLY got together with my stamping gal pals and made a couple of things this weekend. I made this One Sheet Bag, I found the tutorial by Beatie Johns on SCS. I had printed it off some time ago, and finally got around to giving it a shot. I'm glad I did, I think these will be cute with some Christmas candy in it! I didn't do much, I also made a Stationary Box, but haven't finished embellishing it and making the cards to go inside. Once I finish it, I'll post it, too!
Happy Hump Day, y'all! It is Wednesday, right? Geez, not working I never know what day it is now!

Wow, 1000 hits!

Okay, this thing sucks. I just typed a bunch of stuff and then it just friggin deletes on me. WTF. Anyhoo, woo hoo 1000 hits! Thanks for visiting me, even though I haven't posted for quite a while. October was crazy and November sucks. Actually 2008 sucks. (Hopefully 2009 is better.) I got laid off last week. Fun, huh? So, I haven't really been in the mood to papercraft. Although I suppose I should get in the mood since I might be making some Christmas gifts now. Plus, I'm getting together with my girlfriends this weekend so I need to figure out what I'm doing at our crop. So, hopefully I'll have something to post by Monday. :) Anyhoo, thanks for the 1000 hits, here's to 1000 more!

Jingle all the way!

Well, I've finally made something. This was my swap card that I made for Stamp Club last night. I've just been so busy this is the only thing I've been able to make. :( I sure do miss stamping! Does it look familiar? I cased it from Jeanie's card that she made last month when we got together for our monthly crop. I love paper, so I like how the paper makes this really simple card POP!

How cute is my little man?

So, I didn't get anything done that I'd hoped to this weekend. I didn't make my swap cards for Thursday, I didn't make Will's birthday thank you's (so I didn't get to write them out either), I didn't make it out to the Maple Leaf Festival either.... :( Instead of going to Baldwin, I opted to go the Pumpkin Patch instead. We didn't have the best of luck with our photo shoot of Will on KU's campus yesterday so I decided to try my luck at the patch today. It turned out really well! I think that we actually have a few pics to choose from! Now I just need to pick some, edit and PRINT!

Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF!

Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF is a 58-year Halloween tradition beloved by generations across America. This year, Will is Trick-or-Treating for UNICEF Online and we’d like for you to join us!

In 1950, a group of young Philadelphia trick or-treaters, along with their pastor, began the tradition of knocking on doors and collecting funds for UNICEF on Halloween. Since then Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF has empowered generations to save kids lives in their global community through education and fundraising during the Halloween season.

Last year, kids with their families, schools and communities raised more than $4.5 million dollars and over $140 million dollars to date. I hope you will help Will make this year a huge success too.

Here are some examples of how a little can go a long way:

* $5 can provide a box of 100 disposable syringes for use during immunization campaigns.

* $15 can buy one carton of high energy protein biscuits to support and rehabilitate 3 severely malnourished kids for 1 month.

* $44 can provide school supplies to 20 kids

Below, you will find a link to
Will’s Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF fundraising webpage. It takes seconds to make a donation, and you can give any amount, a little or a lot. Since it's so easy to make an impact, I hope you'll support Will in this important cause. Because every kid counts!

Thank you for any support you may give!
