Couple of items and more

Today I received the nicest card from the RAK group at Split Coast Stampers.  Heather sent me this card.  She did such a nice job.


My friend made the next card front in a sympathy swap.  I happened to need a quick card so she gave me one of the fronts she had made.  She did a beautiful job. 


Right now things are so hectic.  Its the last 2 weeks of school.  Plus I have a big ugly scary birthday coming up on the 30th.  Lets just say I am 29 again with LOTS of experience lol.

Back more after school.

Murphy’s Law Reigns Supreme

Today not only was a bad day at home and work but also from the school standpoint.  That midterm I took a couple weeks ago …. well I got 90 on it.. well if the total possible was 100 then I would have been ecstatic but the total possible was 200 yes thats right 200.  The only thing I can say is thank God for the curve…. I do still have a chance to pull my grades out but the next month is going to be H***.  Wish me luck if you can.  Its going to be a long 45 days or so.

Sorry for the Delay

Here is an update on the sampler I am working on.  I almost have the Temple in the middle done. I have done some of the backstitching on it.  There is a ton of it but it sure makes it pop. 


I am hoping they like this when I have finished.

Work..Work..Work..Little bit of Stitching… Work

Well I had to work all weekend.  We are so behind that we are working overtime.  Its been a pain as far as trying to study and such but I did get a tiny bit of stitching in. 

Stoney Creek sent me a model to work on (of course I cant show that here) but I also commissioned a personalized sampler from Stephanie Twillman of she is fabulous to work with.  This sampler is for one of our Partners at work who is going on a 3 year LDS mission in July.  I had the sampler personalized for him and his wife.  Below is a picture of what it will look like.  Its gorgeous.

I am now an Angel!!!!

LOL no I am not bragging... I signed up with The Angel Company... I am officially a demonstrator for them.  I am really excited.  I signed up mostly to be a Hobby Demo (lol basically I am my own best customer) but hey if other orders come my way I won't turn them down lol.  I love their stamps.  I got a whole bunch with my starter kit and I placed my first order and have a bunch more coming.  I will need to start making more cards to put on my blog now I suppose lol.   Right now they have a fabulous deal going on.  Any T coded stamp set is 50% off.  LOL I took advantage of that.  I also got an additional 50.00 worth of stamp sets in addition to my starter kit.  It was like Christmas all over again. 

Well I have to get back to the books again.... School is back in.

OMG I am a winner...

Kathy over at Bits and Pieces blog pulled my name for a drawing for some Blog Candy.  I can not believe this.  I never win anything.  I am so excited.  Below is a picture of the blog candy that she gave away.  She is soooo generous.  I just can't believe I won it.  Here is Kathy's blog for all you stampers out there, kathatstamps.  I hope all of you are having a wonderful new year.  School starts again on Tuesday so it will be back to the grind for me.  Ugggg I just keep reminding myself that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

Happy Birthday Card...

I joined a swap on Splitcoast Stampers and it was for birthday cards.  I made this one from a sketch provided on sheetload of cards blog.  I used Kraft paper as a base and Black, Pixie Pink, & Pretty in Pink.  I think it turned out pretty good. 


The picture is a bit askew... The card isn't crooked.  I would do things a bit differently if I was making the card again.  I would put ribbon on the bottom of the striped piece before I mounted it down lol.   But for my first attempt it isn't too bad.

My very first Biscornu finish!!!!

Well I finally did it.  I ventured into the world of Biscornu's.  I saw a pattern on the online needlwork show that I had to have.  My friend Margot loves pigs so when I saw the design "Holy Mud" by Barbara Ana I had to get it.  Below are some pics of what it was supposed to look like and my Biscornu.  I dont think its too bad considering its my first attempt.  I would like to thank Mary Katherine from STO for the instructions on how to finish it.  I got them off her blog I believe. 

100_1429 This is what its supposed to look like.

Here is my actual Biscornu.  I thought this design was just too cute to not stitch for my friend.  100_1414

100_1415   100_1416  100_1417  100_1418

All in all not to shabby for my first attempt.  I didnt use the same fabric colors as the model but I still thought it turned out ok.  Margot loved it and was tickled pink lol excuse the pun. 


Till the next time.
