All my bags are packed (sort of)…..
I’m ready to go (mostly)….
I’m standing’ here – outside your door (no – don’t go to the door, I’m not really there)….
Already I’m so tired-of-traveling I could cry-ai-ai…..ai ai…. 🙂
No – I don’t intend to quit my day job and take up singing or song-writing!
But, I am getting close to being ready to head out. I mailed home three boxes today – so heavy I could hardly carry them (thank goodness for if-it-fits-it-ships pricing!) and even threw my back out (why not?!?) and I’m still worried about how heavy my luggage will be. I think if I’m going to keep doing this travel-around-for-work thing, I’m going to need a motor home, specially equipped with a stamping room! Whatcha think? 😉
So, today’s post is quick. I’ll be adding a tutorial over on the Tutorials page (seems like a good place to put it, yes?) with the details on making these cute little treat boxes. I got the idea from Kristi Gray, a fellow Happy Stamper, who shared her little treat boxes that she’d made after seeing a tutorial from Sam Donaldson, in the UK. I was tickled to see them – cuz they use 6″ x 6″ paper! Which is about all I had here in Arizona. And – you make them with the Envelope Punch Board, which I’d carefully carried all the way here and never used. Cuz I didn’t have any paper big enough to make an envelope with – yes, pretty awesome planning!
As soon as I saw them, I got the idea to make a little bag in a box for the folks in my team here. I used Going Places DSP – cuz it’s mostly guys! Take a look-see:
Good day-before-Saturday-which-I-actually-get-off! I’ll assume that you’re all looking forward to the weekend – and some sleep! – as much as I am. It’s been a long week, for sure.
In the midst of the madness, though, sits my Stampin’ stuff – quietly waiting for me to return to it for a few minutes of creative happiness! Just this morning, while making red beans and rice, macaroni salad and BBQ baked beans (potluck day at the office) in the postage stamp kitchen, I whiled away the macaroni-boiling time by working on a card for tomorrow! Nice way to wait for soft macaroni. Also – if I had returned to the bed….well. I might still be snoring there! 🙂
For today, though, I have a card that I made for you last weekend. It combines the new Occasions stamp set called Beautiful Ride and the Going Places DSP. Take a look-see:

Happy Friday, y’all! I’m counting down the days until I head out again – so am enjoying as much “at home” time as I can! Today was exciting – I got my hair cut.
No – that’s not the cause for excitement! When I got home – I had a box sitting by the gate that said “Stampin’ Up!” on the side! Oh my goodness, what fun THAT was to open! Stamps, and paper, and punches, and inks, and embellishments and more stamps and framelits…..wow. I surely did enjoy pulling those things out of that box!! 🙂
I spent a little time making a card with some of the new goodies, but my share for today is one I made a couple of days ago – you’ll maybe recall that I’m busily getting ahead on cards so I can keep the blog posts going next week…
So, this one is a masculine birthday card – I get asked for those every once in a while, so I figured I’d try to come up with one! It uses Sky is the Limit (this is a Sale-A-Bration stamp set that’s only available until 15 Feb!) and a sentiment from Guy’s Greetings (a fun set from the Annual Catalog). Take a look-see:

So – have I told you guys that I have a most awesome husband? Well, if I haven’t – I should have. Cuz I do. He routinely stays back at the homedrome keeping everything together and going. And taking care of horses. And cats. And bills. And…and…and! And, he’s been thru way more than his fair share of taking care of me (literally) thru a series of medical things. Better than I could have ever hoped for – and for much longer than either of us ever expected! So. I am a fortunate woman, indeed. Just wanted to say that!
For my share today, I decided I’d whip up a card with the soon-to-come (like on 5 Jan!) Going Global stamp set in the 2016 Occasions Catalog. The stamp set lends itself really well to “miss you, love you” kinds of cards – so this is one that will go in the mail to my most-wonderful-hubby on Monday. And the coordinating Going Places DSP Stack is just gorgeous! I used a little of the paper and a few of the stamps and this is what I came up with. Take a look-see:
