All Fixed and Vendor Event

I finally have my computer up and working again! Yeah! I've been crafting some cute things in the meantime. Did you follow my blog in January? Will you please email me your address if I don't have it? I have some prizes to award. Future Follow my Blog awards will be drawn from those who post comments. Comments sometimes get lost in my email.

My business cards are in. They are super cute. A little hard to read on the back with the tiny font but I still love them.

I will be at Joe's Crab Shack in Merrillville (Hobart), Indiana tomorrow (Thursday Feb 23rd) from 5:30- 7:30 or 8. I'll have some minis and SAB minis as well as samples from both. I have a few items for sale but I'm really looking to fill my calendar. Take advantage of Sale-a-Bration  and get this super cute (image lower left) bag for having a qualified workshop of $150 or more. Book a workshop at the event and get to pick an extra prize from my bucket.

FREE! My Digital Studio

Free copy of My Digital Studio. Come play and try it out. See if you like it before you buy it.  To get the software. There's even tutorials and step by step projects to help you get started. When it first came out, I wondered if I would even use such a program. After all, I love scrap booking but the reason I chose Stampin' Up! over some of the other companies is that I LOVE bumpy scrapping. Brads and buttons-ribbon, eyelets and all sorts of other goodies. So why would I want a program that doesn't have that at all? So I played with it and have come to love it. I use it to my things for my blog and email......those aren't bumpy. I also use it to try out layouts for pages and cards. It sure saves me a lot of time and paper. After I've gotten my ideas ready, then I can go to paper. MDS is perfect for making your own family Christmas cards or that one of a kind gift. This past year, I made a small book. I used my pictures and added a bumpy look to some of the pages. I was able to add journaling and a title in different fonts and it looked good. Then I sent it out to be printed and sent directly to the person it was intended for. She loves it. The work came from my heart but didn't take as much time or money as a handmade scrapbook. Yet, I was happy with it and so was she. So go over to and get your free trial copy. If you like it, that's great. If you don't, at least you'll know and you won't have spent the money on it. Then you can go back to doing the things that you do love.

Sale A Bration Drawing

I've been having a fine time with all the fun products from Sale a Bration. I finally got my stamps and my new computer. I'm hoping to figure out pictures really soon. In the meantime, I'm doing a raffle box.  I have a sheet with squares. Each square is $3. When the squares are full, I will draw 3 numbers. The first person will get $50 worth of product and a hostess set, the 2nd and 3rd numbers will get $50 in product. Each person will also be able to pick a SAB item as well. We have stamps, paper, brad and ribbon pack, a cute decor element, brights buttons, and in color cardstock.

If the sheet is filled by the end of February, we can do another one in March. That way we can get 6 winners.  This is the link to the Sale A Bration catalog
