Here we are getting our Christmas tree. Burrrrrrr it was cold, but at least it was dry!
Here is another sign I had in my store. I am officially closed through Christmas. I'm going to finally try and relax and enjoy the holidays. Looking forward to some reading, baking and time with the family. Hope you are having a wonderful holiday season!
Always love looking at all the fun creations over on the Untiy blog. I've been a big fan of Unity for quite some time. They have some great stamps for Mixed media creations. Today I'm posting a fun piece I made...
Here are some pictures from another great Halloween.
(My son is too old for dressing up and trick or treating and I wasn't able to get a picture of him)
And check out Grimm tonight. Here is a picture of my daughter from a commercial they have airing for tonight's episode.
Here is another fun wood block I made using fun stamps from Unity Stamp co. The stamp reads: DO Small things with great LOVE. Here is a link if you'd like to join in with Unity FWF this week: http://theunitystampco.blogspot.com/
Also , on another fun note. NBC just released First Look: Grimm season 3. It's starting on Friday October 25th. Here is a screen shot of my daughter (on the right). Very proud of her.
I love inspirational words. That's part of the reason I got started with my sign business. I have lots of wood around the house. Here I made this wood sign using stamps, paints, stencils... The sentiments are from a Unity set called Empowered words.
Well the kids started back to school today. It's going to take some time adjusting to this new schedule. We slip into summer mode very easy and it's rough going back to those early mornings. Looks like more coffee for me! (= Here are some pics of the first day back...

And I can hardly believe Chase will be a Freshman this year!!! Yes, High School!!! So hard to believe!!! They grow up SO FAST!!!
Here is a recent Thank you card I made. I have a little obsession with paper, but I haven't found a lot of time for card making lately. I need to use some of it up! (= The paper used for this card is "My Minds Eye". Here is a simple thanks...
I received some new stamps this week from Unity Stamp Co. I really like these new stamps by Stephanie Ackerman. I used ...YOU are FILLED and made a canvas. It's an 8" x 10" canvas. I used paints pens, stencils, stamps...
I'm linking up to Unity FWF. Head on over to there blog to see more inspiration.
I'm adding a few more new signs to my store this week. I really like this one! It says " Do more of what Makes You HAPPY".
Oh, and by the way my daughter Delaney's Fred Meyer commercial just started airing. I'll post a link if you'd like to see it. She is in the teal shirt. Running off the bus, running with a group, peaking around the lockers and then waving in the last shot.
Here is a fun little block of wood that I painted. I started by covering the wood with gesso. I used a mix of paints, pens, stamps... The girl is an older Suzi Blu stamp from Unity. I used a couple Christy Tomlinson background stamps and an older Unity KOM for the sentiment, sun and flowers.
Thanks for looking.

I've been continuing to add new signs to my store. I've been loving all the dandelion images I've seen lately. This sign was made using a walnut stain for the background, a dandelion image and the word Wish...
This week is Teacher Appreciation week. Our teachers are all so wonderful and this is a great chance to do something nice for them. This year I put together this fun basket for my daughters teacher. She is a tea drinker so I filled it with lots of fun finds. A small tea pot, cup and saucer, several tea's, honey, chocolate bar, truffles... I saw the yellow and knew I wanted to send a basket/box full of Sunshine. Another great idea found on Pinterest. (=
The tag reads: Sending you a little box of SUNSHINE to brighten your day as you always brighten mine.
I went to my local scrapbook store and purchased some fun new papers. The background paper I used is from Glitz. The bottom corner reads: You can never have too much happy. The pictures are of my daughter playing soccer. I used a few stamps from Unity on my layout. The happy circles and arrows are both stamps from past Unity KOM.
Here is a little closer picture
