A Fantastic Surprise!

Jim & I, on Monday, November 26, 2007, will celebrate our 25 wedding anniversary. This weekend has been one of great surprises. The first surprise and probably the biggest of my life was expecting to pick up 4 lobsters from my little sister, Leah, who lives in California. We expected to pick them up at the airport.
This is what we thought we were picking up. It turned out to be this:
For those of you who don't know, this is my only son, who has been away at college.
He is 21, his name is Jonah! He really surprised us on Thanksgiving! It was such an awesome surprise!

What an awesome trip!

I really missed blogging, but I had a great vacation. I have discovered that T.G.I. Fridays is an awesome restaurant. The food is flavorful, the service is great. I had crispy fried green beans in Ranch Wassabe sauce, they tasted great both ways. I had Argentinean rubbed flat iron steak, it was delicious and so moist. I also had the Oreo Chocolate Cake for dessert. They have a great special right now, 3 choices for $12.99. I have only eaten their twice, but the food has been fantastic both times. The only thing I don't like is the loud music! The Amtrak train ride was awesome. I got to see the beautiful fall foliage in Wisconsin & Minnesota! The train is a great way to go. It is good to get home! I had a great time seeing my son and spending time with him!

My Ribbon & 2 cards

I am going to put a picture of the ribbon that I received in the ribbon swap that Rhi had. I love my new ribbon.
This card I made for one of my friend's Birthday. I used "Close to my Heart" papers and stamps. I used my new ribbon.
This card I made for another friend's Birthday. I love the mouse holding a rose stamp. He is really cute. It is a wooden stamp. The companies name on the stamp is trademark "1992 Penny Black of Berkeley, CA." I stamped him with Marvy Black ink and colored him in with colored pencils. The paper is CTMH, it is raspberry background and texture paper. It has been discontinued.

Blog Candy

If you want some blog candy, visit and also . All you have to do is leave a comment, and you get entered into the random drawing. I love blog candy!

A card

Katie (my "Close to My Heart" distributor) made this card in June at our hostess club, to demonstrate. You pull on the ribbon. The inside says, "Go Shopping."

Very cool Project!

The Garden Gift box by Jami Petersen on The Scrapbook Lounge was so cool. She shows you exactly how she made it. Every Friday, The Scrapbook Lounge has a new project with a movie, templates, and design guide. They also have links to buy the stuff that they show. It is very cool. You can also see stuff that they already have made.
I try and visit this site every week.

My Newest Blog!

I already have a blog, that I started in May. I am going to start this new blog, devoted to stamping. I love to stamp, but I don't do it as much as I would like to. I am very busy, teaching at a private school, working at McDonalds (part time), reading blogs, playing on my computer. I am going to link my two blogs together. I am going to put pictures on this blog of my creations, as well as my many stamping friends. I belong to a hostess club, with "Close to my Heart" stamping stuff. This means that every month for a year, I go to a stamping party, and have to purchase at least $15 worth of stamps. We make cards, eat good food, and spend some money for the hobby that I love. I don't only have "Close to my Heart" products, but I mostly do. In January, I am the hostess of the club, so I get free products for my birthday. My distrubuter is going to have a crop night, and let us come over and work on a project for free. It should be a lot of fun. I will post some pictures after that night. I was in a ribbon swap. So I thought I would post a picture of the ribbon that I received. It was a lot of fun.
