I have been an Independant Stampin' Up! Demonstrator since October of 2002!
Tonight a couple of gal pals and I stamped some lovely cards. One of them, I took some inspiration for the fabulous Sandy McIver. She is an awesome artist! So, I took away, added a few things and came up with something similar but different, I hope I honored her original! I did use some cooper ink and embossing powders which are retired but it added just what I was looking for! Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget brayer class is thursday!
OH!!!!! AND NO BABY YET, I have not left you out of the loop! They will start inducing on Thursday. Clair said today.....she gave the baby a 48 hour eviction notice! Too funny
Here it is August 29th and no baby yet. I just knew she would have it on my birthday!! But she was afraid she would have to let me name the baby! So now I have resigned the fact that the babies name will NOT be Sadie......I will of course love her just the same....They have a million names picked out and have not decieded yet.
Here is another one of my DIY projects for the babies room. Took an old desk that was in Clairs room when she was little, painted it and turned it into a changing table. By the time I was done.....definately would have been cheaper to buy a NEW one!!
The crib was repainted, curtains made and I did a lamp and lampshade too....Must not have taken a photo of that. Anyway.....we are almost ready for that baby!!!! I will keep you in the loop.
So before the baby shower I did manage to get a couple of cute things done for the babies room. This is a pcture board. Fabric covered Artist canvas, lots of ribbon and button glued to brads. Clair can put photos on there in the babies room. Cute!!
Then....not being able to sleep one night I decided to make this too.....A sweet little frame Clair can either hang on the wall or set on a bedside table in the babies room.
This week we (Dave and I) are painting the crib Mambo Pink, painting a lamp mambo pink, decorating a new matching lampshade for that lamp, painting a desk and turning that into a fabulous changing table for the babies room. Should keep us out of trouble. I will take some photos when they are complete! I already finished the curtains and the closet curtain....forgot to take photos BUT....I will go over there and take a final photo when the room is done. Clair did a lovely job painting.....guess what color??? Yep Pink. It actually bubble gum....not mambo....the accents will be mambo. So....just in case you dont know....My only daughter is FINALLY having another baby. Sophie her first child is 9 (yes nine) years old....so its like starting over. We are all over the moon. She was dialated to one on Friday so...maybe this week we will have a baby, Thursday would be good!

Beans, peppers, tomatoes, salsa, pickles (dill, garlic dill and bread and butter), picked onions, raspberry jam, peach butter, and orange marmalade. Wow I honk I am making my deft tired all over again.
Also decided to make my families special holiday raspberry cordial!! Can't wait until Christmas Eve, have not made cordial in over 10 years, don't worry it's like riding a bike!!
