Where Did the Blogs Go?

  I couldn't believe just how long it has been since I last made a post on this blog! I'd like to say that time flies when you are having fun but that hasn't quite been the case. The Glitzy Glamour Gals were preparing a Christmas in July crop but that had to be postponed. It's mostly my fault. Things have been hectic!  I've had way too many doctor appointments followed by way too many tests! The cropping mojo has been on the back burner. Tammy and I have still had some cropping sessions and  I have posted a few projects on my You Tube channel but that has been about it. I am hoping things turn around but that is all undetermined at the moment.
I finally got around to reading a few blogs today!  I hadn't done that in many months but I found something odd.  Some of the blogs I had subscribed too were no longer in my subscription list.  Now I know this has been a problem on You Tube but I didn't know it was happening with Google.  Has anyone else experienced this?  I wish I could remember the names of some of those blogs but I just can't figure it out.  My memory isn't what it use to be! If you happen to be one of those blogs, leave a comment and let me know so that I may  subscribe again!

Calling All Stampers

I have good news, well sort of, and I have bad news.  Jacque of at Scrollswork Stamps has asked me to pass along this bit of information to you.  They will be going out of business and everything is on sale. With her growing family comes more responsibility as a Mom. If you like vintage, steampunk and Asian stamps, you are sure to find something of interest at Scrollswork. I already had loads of their stamps but had to order loads more!!!! Run on over there and find something for your next project!


It is with a sad and heavy heart that Scrolls Work is announcing our going out of business sale.

We gave it a strong go with a lot of hard work, and our love of stamps. Unfortunately with the economy and the soon to be addition to the family we are having to close our doors.

The good new for you.... Our Going Out of Business Sale.

Once the sale starts it is
first come first serve.
So once we are out of stock on a stamp it will no longer be available.
Make sure you buy them ASAP!!

Sale Dates:

It starts May 15th with a 40% discount.
June 1st it will go to a 50% discount
June 15th starts the 60% discount.
July 1st ends with a 70% discount.
July 15th we are closing the site.

Thank you all for being so wonderful! With out you we wouldn't have made it this far.

Fallen Behind


When I finished the 31 day challenge on You Tube, I thought I would be ready to host a February pay it forward challenge. However, with my family being ill over the last few weeks, I haven't had the opportunity to get that going yet. The January challenge took a great deal of time so I need to get caught up with things around the house too.  Just hang in there and I will get it posted soon if nothing else happens.  I have to head into the city for a few doctor appointments first and then I will issue the challenge. Lord willing and if the creek don't rise! LOL! Until then, here is a photo of our winter wonderland weather. The photo below was taken from one of the two second floor balconies.  You can see it from the photo above over the main entry of thefront porch. For a better view, scroll through the Victorian house label on the side bar.  I think there is a good photo of the front of the house in there.

Stylish Blogger

Well, I have been catching up on my reading and email today.  I found this award from Mary Rose's Cafe. It was on her Wednesday post. Just when you think that people aren't reading, you get a lovely surprise such as this award.  Awwww thanks!!!  One of the reason's for blogging is to share creative ideas with other people just like me.  My blog has been neglected since I participated in Marion Smith's You Tube challenge for January but that is over now.  It was a lot of work to post video every day but it was also fun to watch what everyone was doing and creating. All of my video are found here.This week, I have been catching up on the home front.  Everyone in my home has been ill except for me and that has slowed me down a bit.
 To get back on track, I will start with this award.  I am supposed to share 8 things about myself and then pass the award on to eight other bloggers. Since I work with the Glitzy Glamour Gals, I won't be adding them to my list but you can always look at their personal blogs for inkspiration. You can find their personal work from this page.

1. My favorite music groups are Third Day and Casting Crowns. I often listen to them when I create.

2. I could spend nearly every day of a cold winter in my PJ's. They are so warm and comfy!

3. I hate temps below 40 degrees and mid winter is very blucky!

4. I miss gardening and hope to do more of it this year. My yard needs it and so does my pantry.

5.I like to preserve food so that I can have a taste of summer during the cold months of winter. It is also satisfying to know that the ways of my grandparents are still alive. Did you know that they use to produce over 90% of their own food?  My dad would say, 'If we didn't raise it, we didn't eat it.'

6. I enjoy collaborating with other artists on group projects and enjoy teaching willing adults.

7.I read a lot. I don't read books often unless it is a mystery but I do read magazines such as Victorian Homes, Countryside, This Old House, and Growing for Market along with a few others.

8. If I am not creating something every week, I go through withdrawals! LOL!

Now for the difficult part of choosing only 8 other people to participate.....

My Romantic Home  This blog has the prettiest photographs and I find inspiration for my home.

Basketmaster's Weavings Although Nancy isn't blogging much these days, I still enjoy what she brings to the table. Nancy found me through my basket making and I always enjoy reading what she has to say.

Scrapping Suzie QTT  Now this gal and her sister know how to create and have fun doing it! She is a new friend who makes wonderful creative projects!

Just a Few Designs Elsa has a great sense of design and color so go check her out!

Randi's a New Creation She makes the prettiest paper projects and cards!

Jaqueline's Craft Nest She does the most beautiful work!

Paper Pleasing Ideas Julie's blog has inspired my creativity, given me strength, made me laugh and made me cry.

Carolyn's Creative Whims I served on the first Scrolls Work design team with Carolyn this year. I enjoy her writing and her art.

It took me several hours to decide who I would choose for this list.   I chose these people because they have something special to offer. If you check them out, it won't take you long to see what I am talking about.  This award was a surprise, it was fun and it made me think about why I read these other blogs.  a big thanks goes out to Mary Rose!

Day 3 of Marion's 31 day challenge


Today was like moving around deck chairs on the Titanic! This room is small and I move things around a lot in order to rearrange the room or I take it outside of the room and move it back in a little at a time. I thought this set up would last about a month while I wait for the jetmax cubes to go on sale but I found out the cubes are on sale right now. That means that I will tear the room up again in order to create a cutting island for my Cricut and Cuttle Bug.
Enjoy the chaos!
