Are you ready?

I am so excited to be creating again.  I kind of got involved in sewing for the Veterans at the Portland VA Hospital and I really enjoy it, but I miss creating things with paper, ink and stamps.  I miss my circut too.

I am perticipating in a monthly Blog hop again this month.  We had a great responce last time and hope to get all the bugs worked out, so that it runs a little smoother.  So watch for it the begining of November.

Coming Soon!!!

Did you mis-out on the Mystery Hostess event in September?

Well I just created another one for October.  When you place an order through me or my website, your name will be entered into a drawing to be the Mystery Hostess for the month.

What is a Mystery Hostess and why would you want to be one?

Well, you know a Hostess is someone who has party and earns products based on their sales for the party, right?  Well a Mystery Hostess means that all the names of the people who make a purchase no matter the size of the order gets their name put in a drawing to get the hostess rewards without having a party.  This means no cleaning your house, no begging people to come to the party, no preparing snacks and no cleaning up after the party.

Why would you want to be the Mystery Hostess?

Who wouldn't want to win the $25.00 in FREE Close To My Heart products?

So what are you waiting for?  Make sure you place your order by the end of October and your name will be entered into this month's drawing to be the Mystery Hostess and get to pick out what you want
for the $25.00 in FREE Close To My Heart products.

If you have any questions please email me or call me 503-708-6889.

Again!  Go Back

Blog Hop?

I am getting ready to participate in a blog hop on October 5th.  I hope you will all stop by and take a look. 

What's a blog hop?  A blog hop is where you go from one blog to another, looking at the artwork that has been created using the same stamp sets or paper packs.  You get to see how many ways you can use the same sets or papers.  Some make really simple items where others may get elaborate.  It's a fun way to get more ideas on how to use your own products. Each blog will list all the items it took to make the item on display including tools.  There will be links to the blog you came from and links to the next blog and maybe even 2-3 more. Just remember if you get lost you can always start over here and follow the links again. If you follow our blog hop please leave comments so we know you were here and let us know what you think of our projects.

Now I am off to complete my project so I can be ready.
