New Meetup In Delafield, WI

Okey Dokey Artichokey! We are meeting in Delafield to make cards and drink coffee beverages Thursday, Nov. 3rd. Hope you can check out the new meetup group and sign up. The one person who RSVP'd already is receiving a nice gift at the event because she is the FIRST member to RSVP. How fun is that?! Of course there are more prizes in store and I hope to be able to post some pix from the event.

Now, my newest brainstorm of Creativity: What do you do with the free .jpgs you download from Studio J? Of course I have my photos stored on a backup hard drive (had the hard drive for a year and "backed up" the photo files last week, yikes) and of course I have the printed version in an album, however, isn't there MORE that can be done with these awesome pages?!

Yes, I recently ordered some 6 X 6 prints of the pages from and now anxiously await their arrival. The plan is to put these prints into a 6 X 6 album for family and friends for Christmas. The prints are only $.89ea. so for less than $20 I can make a 10 page album (using the new mini albums from CTMH). Still waiting for the album but am excited to get the pix posted once they arrive.

In the meantime enjoy this how to video from CTMH: ">Thanksgiving Card

Moving and Other Chaos

We made it to Wisconsin at the end of August...just in time to get back to school. I think I forgot to pack my brain!

My heart goes out to all of you who move your families frequently. There is no way that this impossibly big job gets easier with each move.

I finally have my memory keeping and craft supplies unpacked and reorganized. Woo hoo! As soon as I can I will post some new projects, in the meantime enjoy this video on how to make these cute projects with buttons and bling:
