Happy Halloween!


Well another year of trick or treating has come to an end....this year we only got around 60 kids or so.....less than last year of over 100. I think because a townhouse development went in since then near us most of the kiddies know its alot easier to rake in the candy there! Still alot of fun and I'll post some pic's of our kids another time....

Just wanted to share this great post by kwerner. She works at the SU headquarters. It looks like such a great place to work! Look at photo's she took and also watch the quick video at the end. TOO FUN! . The girls got alot of great treats. Some of my favourties are the jars of playdoh, a full size toothbrush, a full size twizzlers, chips, mars, nibs and Reece Peanut Butter cups....What are your favourties?????

I'm just getting packed up for a girls bday party I'm doing tomorrow. I'll take a pic of the projects and post them monday. Hope the girls have fun!

October Club project

Here's one of the club projects we made in October. It was a big hit as everyone loved the idea of giving these as gifts!
I found the idea at
Instructions created by
We also used the Season of Friendship stamp set and the technique Poppin' Pastels as well and made a card and swatch.

fun with my punches and dies

Here are 2 little projects that I've made recently. Saw both ideas on blogs I visit and I thought they were cute enough to try myself! I made the little box (based on the 2,4,6,8 model but at 2 1/2 instead).
Friday morning Kylie and I made the little Top Note die people. I esp love the satin ribbon bow on the girl, and her black eyelashes! Eyelashes were made by cutting a stripe off the edge of black grosgrain and then pulling the layers away...reveals a eyelash look!
Colours used are pixie pink, kiwi kiss and black.

Create a Calender book class

Isn't this a great idea! I came upon this idea on SCS by whats_her_name and thought what a great gift idea for teachers and friends! (and also one for myself so I can keep track of important dates!)
This Create-a-Calender kit is found in the Holiday Mini here.
Everything you need to make this kit is here except for the square matt under the 2009. As well as at my class you will bind your calender using my binding machine.

First calender you make is $13 and any on top of that are $10. These would make great gifts for teachers, friends and family!

Class is November 7th (friday) at 7:30pm. My home.
Preregister is a must as I have to order these calenders to be here in time. Preregister by October 24th please. My email is Limited space so hope to hear from you soon!

family pic's


Just wanted to share a pic of Jacob and me. He's such a big boy now! At his 4 month immunizations he was 16 1/2 lbs! He's such a joy, and for the most part a happy, smiley baby. On the downside though he isn't a 'napper' so I find it hard to get stuff done during the day. He does go to bed around 6:30pm though so at least I have my evenings to be with the girls and Chris. (and stamps LOL).

Also.....ta da! Megan's new 'do'. It seems like just a few weeks ago I was posting her new 'do', Remember? It was soooo lovely....when the hairdressor did it. I just found it so hard to keep up, and it was so wild and frizzy. I sent her to school with barettes or ponytails and she took it out at school and looked like Medussa when I picked her up :) Soooo she wanted a pixie cut, and I closed my eyes when they chopped, and voila,its done. Its cute, and sooo much easier in the morning!

Anyway, next post will be stampin'

Happy Stampin',

scallop square punch

Hi there!

Here's a quick Christmas card I made last night. I've been playing around with different sets and layouts as I have to plan some upcoming Christmas card classes as well as come up with a swap card for my upcoming team meeting. Here's one I'm not using at either of those events.

Stay tuned for my next post about a neat gift class that you can make!

Happy Stampin'
