I have decided that it is time to purge a little! I have a hard time getting rid of stamps because I always think that as soon as I get rid of them, I will want to use them for something! I tried to pick and choose carefully, but who knows! I will create a list below of the sets I am ready to part with. I will list the price I would like and then we’ll have to add shipping. I don’t want to list shipping prices because multiple sets will cost a different amount than a single set and some of the single sets are larger than others. You can mention the sets you are interested in and I will get back to you with a total price including shipping. Sound fair? If you need a visual of these stamp sets, you can find them in the Stampin’ Up! Gallery over at Splitcoaststampers.com. Scroll down to find them listed by name. Once a stamp set has been claimed, it will have a line marked through it. Here it goes!

To start this list I have 3 Gina K stamp sets for sale. All three of these sets are unmounted but have permanent adhesive on the cushion. You can place these on your own wood blocks, or acrylic as long as you understand they will be stuck there permanently!

Gina K Scalloped Frames & Doodles size Large Squares $7

( I have 2 sets of these) These go with the Marvy Scalloped punches or would work with Nestabilities.

few months ago, I posted on my blog about a friend, Tish, who’d been
diagnosed with a very rare form of ovarian cancer. Tish battled through
6 rounds of chemo only to discover two additional tumors, one on her
spine and one in her stomach. My heart fell when I read her CaringBridge
post which broke the news. Since her diagnosis last August, the family
has held the motto of DRIVE ON! in dealing with this aggressive cancer
and fought a valiant fight.

Tish lost
her battle early Tuesday morning, and I found out about it late last
night. Tish leaves behind two beautiful, young sons, and a hubby, Todd,
who I worked with for several years in my past life. I know Todd much
better than I knew Tish, and know just how difficult this has been and
will continue to be for the immediate future.  Todd was the most
compassionate, tender-hearted *boss* I’ve ever had, and I want more
than anything to really help this family.

So what I’ve decided to do is two-fold: 1) Starting tomorrow, I am offering a 10% discount on ALL stamps on the site. Use the coupon code Tish
at checkout to receive 10% off all all the stamps in your shopping
cart. (It won’t discount your other merchandise, just stamps.) The
coupon code will run from Tuesday, April 15th-Friday, April 18th. 2) I
will donate 10% of ALL proceeds (including money spent on other items
on the site) to the family at their April 26th benefit.

http://www.mftstamps.com/blog/ (Please visit my blog for avtice links and all the deets!)

am making it my goal to personally make the payment the FL College
Pre-Paid plan for the boys during an entire year which will be about
$1200. Please help me reach this goal.

Many hugs,

My daughter has been begging for a sewing machine for a long time.  She got a Singer kids Machine for Christmas.  It is great for her to get the feel of what a sewing machine really does, but it really won’t hold things together very well.  Many of you have been showing off the Janome Sew Mini’s that you have purchased.  I have thought about it for a long time, but didn’t want to spend the $$.  I started thinking about it even more after my daughter received a pillow from her cousin that she had made by herself.  This got my daughter begging to sew even more!  I have sewn on a couple of cards and really like it, but I didn’t want to dull down the needle on my regular Janome.  Soooooo, I decided to spring for the Janome Sew Mini.  Partly for my daughter and partly for me!!!  She’s excited to learn how to really sew and I love that it sews at a slower spped than my regular machine.  Even with the pedal to the floor, it doesn’t go very fast!


It has a limited number of stitches that it will do, but for cards and kids that A-Ok!  Mine regular Janome has LOTS of stitches and I hate to say it, but I haven’t used most of them!

I’m excited to use this little machine!  I haven’t used it on a card yet but I did mend my son’s sheets this morning!!!  Worked like a charm!!

I purchased mine from Hancockfabrics.com.  They had them on sale and had free shipping!  If you’re looking for a nice, reasonable machine!

Until Next Time…….Happy Crafting!!!

Enabler Alert!!!

Ok, this time I blame it on Lauren!!  You’ve seen her name here a lot lately!  It’s all her fault that I found these cute little shimmery flowers at Michael’s today!  They are really nice and you can punch out the middle to use them with brads too!


I don’t have any idea how many are in there, all it says is 1 oz!  They were $4.99 too.  Of course if you had a 40% off coupon, it would be less!  I have one linked in a previous post if you need one!

I had the thought that you could sponge almost any color on them if you wanted a different color.  I’ll have to give that a try and see if it works ok.

Until Next Time….Happy Shopping and Creating!!!
