Snow & Holly

Life has been so busy over here it's hard to catch up. Between work, the holidays that are quickly approaching, and just everyday life, I haven't had much time to craft and work on any cards. I've been coloring some digi stamps at work when things are slow so in hopes that when I actually have a free moment, I can put a card together. This weekend, I finally had the chance to sit down, relax and make a card. I used one of Amy's New Sweet November Stamps Holly Starshine I have a bunch of cards waiting to be made... If only I could find a way to sneak in more hours during the day :)

Let it Snow!

Hey Folks!
It's been awhile since I've had a post. Between work and trying to get settled in the new house, I've been lucky if I've had a chance to sit down and breathe. I thought I'd pop in since I was uploading photos from my camera cause we had quite an exciting day today. It actually snowed here in Houston!! Houston normally has two types of weather... Humidity & Rain... but what a delight as we had REAL snow!! It even stuck to the ground and didnt melt away :) This is a rarity so of course everyone was freaking out on the roads, but my co-workers and I had a blast with the snow. We made a few snow balls, took pictures and then they eventually closed the office early and we all got to go home! Hooray it's a snow day!

Happy Thanksgiving

Wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving! Kevin and I are spending the holiday here at our new house. We wished we could have joined our families to spend the holiday with them, but we weren't able to travel this year just after the move and all. We've cooked our own Thanksgiving feast and we're enjoying the day together. Wishing you all a wonderful day with your families and friends :)

Welcome Home

We made it! Omg we actually made it....wheeeeew! (Huge SIGH of relief) Kevin and I finally closed escrow on our very first house together! eeeee! It's been an exciting time watching this house being built from the ground up. And after months of anticipation, waiting and way too much stress one person can handle, we closed escrow this afternoon and got our keys today! woohoo!!

We were given a lovely tollhouse cookie from the fine folks at the mortgage company :) It's so cute and such a part of this new memory, I dont know if I can cut into it. But darn it... It's a HUGE cookie that looks way too delicious! hahah Also I'm just dying to get the new Greeting Farm "My House" Stamp set to make & send out announcements with our new address :) It came out just in the nick of time since we'll be moving into a new home. ...If I only had the money!

I'm alive!

I'm alive, I swear! I've been so busy lately, I just haven't made any time to post. Life has been movin along with stamping, work, keeping up with my Etsy shop, you know the same ol' same ol'.... But lately we've also been looking for a new vehicle, talking about and *trying* to prepare ourselves for another move. Our new house is finished being built and it's almost move in ready. We close escrow on November 12th. Time is flying and we literally haven't done a single thing to get ready. That's 2 weeks away folks, and we have a laundry list of things to do, that's been untouched. We haven't started packing, gotten our home owners insurance, scheduled a home inspection, contacted a painter, found movers, looked for a moving truck, gotten our paint supplies, we havent put in our 30 days notice yet at our Apt complex and we also have yet to order any of the appliances we'll need like oh say.... a FRIDGE, a WASHER or DRYER!!! AYE!!!! There's so much to do, and so very little time... It's exhausing just thinking about everything.

In other such good news, I've been preparing for Halloween, my favorite time of year. I've been making ALL 12 of my close co-workers Anya themed Halloween cards w/ candy goodie bags and cupcakes. Oh crap! I just forgot abut the cupcakes till right now! lol I need to get the ball moving and finish up my Anya Halloween cards. I have like 5 more witch hats to draw and color before Friday along with the million other things to do on my list.

Here's a Preview of the huge mess of halloween greeting farm frenzy going on in my craft space. Anya isnt shown cause she isnt currently camera ready lol

Nite folks... I'm off to bed to get an early start tomorrow! ~ Toodles!

Bewitchingly Cute

October has always been one of my favorite months. Falling leaves, crisp air, apple picking, pumpkin patches, Oktoberfest, festivals, and Halloween is approaching us coming soon. I've been out shopping for halloween goodies for some of my fellow co-workers. It's so much fun looking at new decorations each year. My halloween collections is becoming insane, which is good as it may help with decorations for next year. Kevin and I are hoping to have our wedding next Halloween. We want it dark, a little gothic, yet very romantic and elegant. We're hoping that if we can get the finances together and pull it off, we'll leave our guests with never forgetting our enchanting night. I've been working on halloween goodies and cards, and I just got this new cute digi stamp that I just couldnt wait to use. Isn't she cute!?

testing testing ... 1...2...3

Just checking in quickly, life has been busy as ever, but I've still been checking up on all my favorite blogs daily. We're getting closer to finishing the house so we've been back n forth looking at the progress. We close escrow on November 12th, which is right around the corner. We had a slow day at work, and I worked on a card during my lunch break. Gotta love TGF and the versatility of switching stamps around. I used Reeta's head and Megan's body. Now I'm off to go get a hair cut which is extremely overdue, and to run a few errands TTFN!

You are totally Groovy!

Hooray! Now that Berenice got her card, I can finally post a picture of it. I sent this card and a few other goodies to her a week or so ago :) Pardon the lighting... I deperately took this picture at work with my cell phone while I secretly packaged up her goodies in my cubicle lol! I forgot however to take pictures of the other goodies I sent her... You can get a peek over at her blog

Confession time

I have a Confession:
This was the original card I made for Berenice... but I goofed it up BIG time! I stuck everything on the card with permanent adhesive and when it was finished I proudly held it up and realized the dang card opened up the wrong way! I immidiately yelled a few profanities "!@#$%^*&!!!and then laughed at myself before making her another card that wasn't upside down lol! I'm hoping I'm not the first to ever do that.... ahhh you live and learn.... that's what I get for not paying attention to what I'm doing heehee...

Love in my mailbox

Today was quite the surprise. I went to check the mail and I got 2 notices to pick up packages at my Apartment Office. I walk in and one of the Apartment associates hands me 2 large packages... I say whaaat? My mom has been calling me all week asking if I received my b-day package yet, but nope these packages were not from good ol' mom. In fact, one was from my BFF Liz and the other one was quite unexpected, it was from a customer of mine Teresa. She had ordered some personalized address labels from me a couple times, and she's seriously one of the sweetest people I've NEVER met! lol The first time she ordered labels, I got a really sweet card in the mail thanking me, yet she purchased the labels from ME lol! I was so surprised I got a thank you card, so I sent her a card right back to thank her hahah!
Then she recently ordered more labels after moving, and now I get a random package in the mail. How sweet is this girl!? :) I dont even know if she knows I have a blog, but I'm going to have to come up with something really special to send her just because :)

My goodies from Liz

My goodies from Teresa

Just in case either Liz or Teresa read this...

Courage, Strength, Hope, Faith

Yesterday my co-workers and I found out that another co-worker of ours just got a call from her doctor and found out she has breast cancer. My heart sank and my thoughts and prayers really went out to her since one of my Aunts recently found out she also has breast cancer. A few of us at work pitched in and got her some beautiful flowers and I was designated to make her a card. I quickly threw this together this morning while I was at work so we could all sign her card to let her know we were there for her. Now looking at the card all I see are mistakes and little things I would have changed, not to mention the lighting at work is horrible lol. It's funny how we can criticize our own work, yet it turns out she loved the card and was surprised that I made it :) It makes me feel good, to have brightened her day after receiving some unfavorable news.
