Have a Holly, Jolly Christmas!

Yes, I know, I’ve gone a long time without a post…..again. Everything has been so hectic around here especially with starting a new business. So, let me fill you in a little bit. I did my first craft show in November. I don’t feel like I did very well, but I was told that if you make back what you paid for the booth, that you did really well, so I’m looking at the show from that standpoint. The only critique that the ones sponsoring the show gave was that I needed to have more items made up, ready to sell right there instead of ordering. I’ll know next time ūüôā

Anyway, I finally got around to making my Christmas cards! Yay! And for once I’m actually pleased with them. Sent them out yesterday!

Since I never have enough of the same paper, all of my cards are a little different in one way or another, but I guess you can say that it makes them unique. Here they are:

1) This is all of them together.

Hopefully, the recipients of these cards will enjoy them! And I hope you have enjoyed them, too! If I don’t post before Christmas, please have a wonderful day filled with memories!

Random Teacher Card

Hello, Hello!

Again, so sorry for not posting more often! I’m terrible at actually keeping something up to date…doesn’t matter what it is. It could be my checkbook register, filling out my planner, etc. I guess you could say I’m pretty disorgainized….no a better term would be an organized disorganization..HA! I know where everything is…..the area just isn’t neat and tidy!

Today, I have another card for you, and I have no idea where the inspiration for this one came from…..maybe from my disorganized organization?

Here’s how it came to be…

I had seen an advertisement on Amy Tan’s blog¬†for Japanese washi¬†tape and decided to order some. See, I had been avoiding using it because I really didn’t know what to do with it. Is that bad or what?! It’s not like a¬†“you just stick it on there ” type¬†of problem solver–I just didn’t have any idea as to what I could make with it. One day during the week, I’d been on Amy’s blog looking at the stuff she’d made, and the washi tape advertisement came up. I figured I’d give it a shot and went to an AWESOME website called Cute-Tape¬†–pronounced que-te-ta-pei. I loved the grid tape so I popped it into my online shopping cart and purchased it. I’d come up with an idea when I saw the tape and couldn’t wait to get it. I got into the package when the weekend came and ta-da…a teacher card!

We got out of school today and tomorrow for sickness (I had a LOT of fluid in my ears last week, which has developed into a sinus infection…YUCK!), so that’s why you’re getting a post at this time of morning during the school year….summer’s different.

Valentine’s Day is on It’s Way

Life has been hectic around here lately! I don’t have a planning period at school, so I’m spending all of my precious scrapping time at school getting prepped for the next day. I did, however, manage to get some things done yesterday!

Since Valentine’s Day is coming up, I decided to go ahead and get some cards done instead of being rushed.

Here’s the one I’ll share with you today:

I found some paper¬†doilies at the store the other day, and I knew they’d come in handy!!! All¬†of the stamps are by Close to My Heart, and the kraft paper is by The Paper Studio.

I hope you all enjoyed this short but sweet Valentine’s Day card!
