Fun bookmarks

Hello all,

It's been a crazy-busy week for me! Since all the snow FINALLY melted at my place a week ago Friday I've had something to do every day after work. I'm exhausted! ...and my poor house is a mess! Yikes!

I was supposed to train a new Dairy Department Manager at another Safeway store today, but when I got there I found out that he called in sick! Ugh! Good thing it was the store closest to my house. And since I've already had a full cup of coffee, I decided to run a few posts for the week.

So here is one of the MANY projects I did while I was suck at home for 5 days due to the 14" of snow and ice. I recently bought the "All Booked Up" stamp set from Papertrey Ink with the matching Mat Stack die. Made for easy bookmarks that are super cute!

I'm totally in love with kraft paper! I use it on pretty much every project. So I cut out a dozen bookmarks in kraft, and a dozen in plain white. I have a lot of friends that love to read, so these will make great little gifts. They're easy to add into an envelope when I mail a card too.

Well, enjoy your Tuesday. As I was finishing this post, I got a call back from the Store Manager that she'd like me to come back and at least set their department up for the next audit. Back to work I go....


Stamps: All Booked Up-PTI

Paper: CTMH Kraft, White Daisy, and Smoothie cardstock

Other: CTMH Chocolate, Cocoa, Pear, Smoothie, Lagoon, Sunset, Juniper, and Sweet Leaf inks

WHAT??! I'm back?!

Hello all,

Just popping in to say that I'm FINALLY going to get back into the swing of blogging!

I had quite the creative craft mojo slump after my Grandfather passed away this last June. He was a real important man in my life growing up in a single parent home. Makes me teary-eyed just now thinking about him. The whole family has been adjusting well. Grandma of course has had the toughest time, but she's really persevering and trying her best to move on. His death has really brought our whole family closer than before. Here are some pictures I wanted to share...

Here's one of me when I was around a year old with my grandpa. This is one of my favorite pictures. Love the slight smirk on Grandpa's face.

This one is of Grandpa and Grandma when we went to our favorite campground about a month before her passed. We went back after his service to spread some of his ashes down the river there. It's what he wanted since the campground was such a big part of our lives and memories. Its was such a touching moment for all of us. (do you notice his hat? Haha! Typical Grandpa!)

My other issue with blogging was my laptop. I think it's finally dying. :( I got an new-ish desktop from my Grandma's friend and have finally found a place to set it up and convert it to wireless, so I'm good to go now! To bad you can't work blogger with an iPad. You can format ad stuff, but you can't upload pictures. Now to try and save the pictures and files off my laptop before it truly dies!

Over the holiday season and these last couple weeks, I really got my craft mojo back and can't wait to share with you all what I've made! So excited! I hope you will embrace me back into your blog circle with open arms. I really miss everyone!
