About Me

I have discovered that life is a roller coaster and I'm learning to enjoy the ride! I am a married mom of 4. I work part-time outside of the home and, of course, more that full time as a wife and mother! I do classes from my craft room in the basement...which is why we call it the "Craft Cave."

...and more horses!

In my attempt to use up my Hemingway scraps, and make some "manly" cards I've noticed a couple things. #1: I still have tags that need to be used up. (Hmm....I feel a meander mini book coming on!) and #2: I really don't like that starburst looking paper that comes in the Hemingway collection. I still have 2 full sheets of that paper amidst various other scraps that are now getting smaller and smaller. Come to think of it, I haven't seen many samples out "in-the-world-at-large" with that paper either... all the others in the collection, but not that one. Hmmm...
One note here, the hardware is comparable to the hardware featured in the TAC catalog, just not pewter colored. Well, when I ordered mine, it came it copper color and I never thought anything about it! So, since it goes so nicely with the Hemingway collection, it has given me an opportunity to use it!
My fav is the one below with the buckle and the dark green. What do you think?






One more quick note, or maybe two:
For the locals in the North Fork and Delta County area: Stamp Camp on Wednesday, Augut 13. Please let me know you'll be there. $15 for 4 fun projects!
And to the world at large out there! I'll be announcing some blog candy next week ...so stay tuned!!

I LOVE the starburst-looking paper... that was my reason for buying the set! How funny... anyhoo, the cards are great, and I think the buckle one is my favorite, too!

I think you have that paper left because you are actually hoarding it! LOL! That would be my excuse anyway!
Love all the cards - especially the dark green with buckle.
