Father's Day Weekend Pics!

Hello Stampers and Fellow Paper Crafters!

I don't normally post too much personal on my blog, but just wanted to share some photos from this past week and weekend. We had a great time! My Dad came in on Wednesday morning and left out on Monday.  I have posted several pics of our time together at the lake with my sister Sheila and our BBQ dinner on Father's Day where we invited our neighbors and my Mom & Dad Perry to join us!

Daddy and Sheila soaking up the rays, the lake was simply gorgeous that day!

If you look real hard you can see two Bald Eagles up in the trees!

They're there I promise...

Crafting Station is FINISHED!!!

Hello Stampers and fellow Paper Crafters!

This past week and weekend was great!  Not only did I get to spend time with my Dad and my Hubby but my sweet Husband also finished my Crafting Station!  I've attached pics below. 

Finished Station

Almost finished!

Another view...should put something on that corkboard, huh?

Make shift cutting station, I'm still trying to figure out how I want to do this.  Need to store not only cardstock but cutting dies in this space...and have a good flat surface for paper cutter and BigShot.

Other side of Craft Room is actually what is left of my Home Office...Hubby use to have his own desk here, all that's left is his chair.  hehe

BAB Birthday Card for Little Kim

Hello Fellow Stampers and Paper Crafters!  

Today I wanted to share a card I made today for a sweet little girl who is turning 3.  I used the retired Build A Bear Die with the accessories die for clothing and a purse.  Too cute!  I wish they had not retired this set but that's ok, I still plan to use it in my Daycare and Mommy & Me classes! 

Would write more but gotta run folks, my Dad just got into town and is staying with us until Monday and I better go spend time with him and Sophie (his sweet Scottie)!

Ok, until next time Happy Stampin!

Crafting at Patty's Daycare - Father's Day Crafts

Hello fellow Stampers and Crafters,

We had so much fun this morning at Patty's Daycare making a cute Father's Day card and treat using the now retired stamp set "Under the Stars".  I so love this stamp set and find so many uses for it especially for all those men in our lives...unfortunately I forgot to take my camera the class (I do these classes on location) so I have no pics of these cuties making their treats and cards.  However, I do have my samples which I will post!

 Gift Set includes:  Card, Smores and handmade Gift Bag made from a lunch sack! 

 Close up of Card
 Close up of Smores...YUM!

 Ok, folks...until next (should have pics of updated craft room by then) Happy Stampin'!

Craft Room Make Over Update

Hello fellow Stampers and Paper Crafters,

I feel bad that I have not posted an update on my Craft Room make over lately, so I thought I would quickly post some pics...we have finished repairing, painting and installing the cabinets we purchased a few weeks back from our Habitat for Humanity Resale store.  My sweet Hubby has installed a beautiful ceiling fan and added some additional shelving to the 6 foot shelves I once had (Sorry, no pics yet)  and I still would like to find a old 6 drawer dresser to refurbish to use for my cutting station, so once I find it and get my curtain rods up for my paper punches I will post the finished room!   

Here are the pics I have so far...

Ok, until next time folks when I hope to have a finished room...Happy Stampin!
