Dinosaurs Not Just For Kids!

For my monthly mall class I challenged myself to create a dinosaur card that wasn’t geared towards kids . It was a bit of a challenge until I paired the ‘No Bones About It‘ stamp set with the ‘Here for You‘ stamp set. I think it worked!

My niece saw this card and then asked me to make a wedding card with a dinosaur theme. She was attending a wedding in the Orlando Science Center and the reception was being held in the Dino Hall. Here are the two cards I made, one for my niece and one for my sister who was also attending the wedding.

10 Years of Joy!

I just received this letter in the mail and it’s hard to believe that 10 years have flown by so fast. I can’t wait to add the pin to my lanyard and display it at the upcoming Stampin’Up! OnStage event in Savannah.

I became a Stampin’Up! demonstrator because I was attracted to the discounts and 10 years later it’s been an adventure! I immediately started thinking on how Stampin’Up! has impacted my life during these past 10 years and here’s my list…

  1. Lifelong friendships: I’ve met so many new friends that have enriched my life. A few of us have formed such strong bonds that it’s hard to imagine not ever meeting them.
  2. Creative outlet: I have occasionally considered myself a creative person or wannbe creative person. It wasn’t until I started making cards with Stampin’Up! products that I unleashed my creative side!
  3. Self-confidence: I was never a shy person to begin with, but with Stampin’Up!, I’ve had the self-confidence to share my thoughts and creativity.
  4. Leadership: I’ve learned with Stampin’Up! that I could motivate and inspire people to engage with their vision and unleash their own creative side. We all have one and it is always a pleasure to help others find their’s.
  5. Fun and Joy: It’s so much fun to create something for someone and see the look on their face when they realize it was made especially for them. Stamping and creating has many rewards and I’m happy and blessed that I found Stampin’Up! to help me find new friends, a creative outlet, a sense of accomplishment and much more.

I’m looking forward to many more years as a Stampin’Up! demonstrator and can’t wait to meet all the new friends I will make along the way!

And It’s a Boy!!!

Some of you might remember last year around this time I was working on projects for the my God-daughter/niece’s wedding. I’m thrilled to announce that she is going have a baby in September. Recently we my family gathered for a gender reveal celebration and we were all happy to learn that it is a boy!

I had the honor of being the very first to know the gender since I had to prep the canvas and fill the balloon with colored water. Thank goodness they handed me the envelope only a couple of hours before, the knowledge would have been so tempting to share!


You can see the emotion on my sister’s face to learn she’s going to be a grandmother to a boy! We all shed a few tears of joy.

Congratulations to Alexandra and Brandon and their baby boy!

My sister and I have been pinning so many things on Pinterest as we get ready for the baby shower…and she’s due in September!
