OMG! I can't believe it's been so long...

October??? Really??? Has it been that long since I posted?

Wow, things have been so busy here in the studio. There are several new pagekits and premades in the Etsy store. Plus I'll be adding more here this week too.

I've also vended at several crops since October and all the women I've met have been sooo sweet. The booth looks totally different with the new displays and I can't wait to share new pictures with you. I'll be vending at an event put on by the girls at Diva Designs in a few weeks so I'll be sure to add pics of the new booth display.

So for now, I ask that you stay tuned and I promise I'll be around lots more =)

Candy, Candy, Candy!

Our newest premade layout has arrived just in time for Halloween.

I loved Halloween as a child.

We never really bought our costumes, we had to use our imaginations & creative talents and design them ourselves. It was always so much fun creating our costumes. We got to wear them to school and march in the parade. Then there were all of the Halloween parties at school and at our friends' homes. It was so much fun. When we were younger we were only allowed to Trick or Treat in our neighborhood. Then when we were older, we were allowed to venture into the small little town that I grew up in. We would do a little Trick or Treating and then attend the huge bonfire at the park by our house.

My favorite moments came after the Trick or Treating was over. Anyone that knows me knows that I am a candy fanatic. I love candy bars, bubble gum, hard candy, just about all of it. We would sort our candy treasures into piles and begin the trading process. Lucky for me, my brother liked all of the candy that I didn't like and he was usually really nice about trading with me. I would make myself so sick eating candy. I would shove piece after piece of bubble gum in my mouth to see just how big of a bubble I could blow. As far as I can remember the candy never even lasted until Thanksgiving.

We don't get Trick or Treaters in our neighborhood now, but I still buy the Halloween candy. Last year I even dressed our weenie dog up as a hotdog and had her ring the doorbell with me. My darling husband, bless his heart, gave her a puppy treat and me a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup. I just can't let go of a fun holiday. lol.

I designed this layout for all of those Halloween lovers out there like me. If you like it, you can purchase it here in the Etsy store. This year take lots and lots of pictures and don't forget to take pictures of that fantastic haul of candy that you get too!

Halloween Greetings

Halloween is right around the corner so I thought that I would share a couple of Halloween cards that are in my Etsy store.

Don't you just love how cute the little monsters and witches are? They're not scary at all, just want to help wish a friend "Happy Halloween". If you like this card, you can purchase it here.

This one is my favorite. Although there are no words to wish a Happy Halloween, the googley eyes lend just enough cute creepiness to let you know what the message is. You can see more pictures here.

I'll be posting some Halloween pagekits very soon so keep an eye out...

Sunday Visitor

I let the doggies out this morning and was greeted by a visitor. This little turtle was taking a break in the middle of our driveway. Where he came from, I'm not sure, but once the doggies found him, he wasn't very interested in staying. Our weenie dog, Miss Lilly, was very curious about him. She sniffed around his shell, but when he stuck his head out and hissed at her she decided it was better to let sleeping turtles lie. He wasn't very shy and let me get some good close up pictures of him, sticking out his head really far and showing his huge claws on his feet. My darling husband carried him over to the flowerbed and we watched as he went on his way. I have no idea where he came from or where he was headed to, but I do know that his visit was something that brightened my day a bit.

Have you had a visitor lately that brightened your day?

Until next time,
Creatively Yours,

Seventh Inning Stretch Crop

This past weekend I was a vendor at a crop in Lawrence, Kansas. Diva Designs held their 36 hour long Seventh Inning Stretch Crop. It was a great time and I got to meet so many wonderful scrapbookers. My mom and friend Jean came too and we had a great time! I thought I would share a few pictures from the weekend:

This is my booth.

Here is the Embellishment Bar where you can purchase individual items instead of a whole package of something. Perfect when you only want one flip flop brad, ect.

This is a close up shot of the Embellishment Bar.

Paper piecings and goodies for your pages.

Yummy Intricacies Papers.

The Diva's - Vicki and JJ

150 scrappers still going strong!

A layout completed by Jean.

Jean being a goofball.

Jean and me.

We really did have fun and I even got some scrapping done myself. It's the first time I've worked on any personal scrapping for a very long time. I have to say that if you love to scrap and have never been to weekend crop, you really must try it. I'll be vending at a few more crops this year so look for new posts telling you all about them. Until then, Happy Scrapping!

Don't you just love it when you a get a package in the mail? I know I do. Today I received a package from Suzy at The Memory Cafe. Suzy started her FaceBook fanpage last week. I jumped at the chance to become a fan because Suzy's die cuts are so amazing. Not only did I become a fan, I became her very 1st fan so she sent me a little package of goodies. How cool is that?!?!?!?

Here's what she sent me:
