Time Flies...

Well, I realized that I never posted a picture of the FREE MAke & Take at my Open House, so I need to get on the ball and get that uploaded.

I've also uploaded a picture of gals who came to my Open House on Saturday Night. I forgot to get a picture of the Friday night gals! There's Faith (from New Castle) with her new puppy. He was a real cutie pie! Dawn (from Morristown area) is in the red and Davinna (from New Palestine) is on the right in blue.

I really enjoyed having you here gals!

Woo hoo!

Lookey, lookey! Dana's back from the 'arbor' world! hehehe Sorry, that's a private joke and yes I am a tard.

'I'm not only a member, I'm the president!'

I love this gal to pieces and I miss her even more! Check out her blog. She said she's going back to a food blog but I DON'T CARE... JUST AS LONG AS SHE'S BACK!!!

And are those cupcakes not to DIE FOR??!! Send them my way girlfriend!

MORE Open House Fun

I also made those water bottle thingys. You know, the ones that hang on the neck and hold a single serving of Crystal Light powder? T

hey are cool! Not to mention I had colors behind the water bottles that made them rather colorful! I thought that was neat too!

Here's my display too of my cards from swaps at convention and some that I made. I was trying to showcase the new sets from the catalog. I had new items also laying out in front of that (like new ribbon, brads, simply scrappin' kits, etc.) as well as new catalogs and specials.

Making Me Ill...

Okay, I need to change my blog colors! I was waiting for the RGB codes for the NEW In colors so I better go find'em!

Also, I forgot to change my email for the when someone posts and apparently the forwarding has ended. So I wasn't getting my comments (all THREE of them!) hehehe.


Open House Fun

Hi there!

I'm getting so busy... and I don't want to neglect my blogging buddies as I have been doing lately, so I am going to try and post more regularly by writing 2 or 3 posts at a time and having them scheduled to post about every other day. Does that sound good?? I hope so!!

I had my Stampin' Up! 2008 Fall/Winter Idea Book Open House (now that's a mouth full!) last weekend. I wanted to get some pictures posted for you guys... I had 3 gals come Friday night. **Waves HI to Traci, Teresa and Barb!** I was thankful it wasn't more as I was a bit unprepared plus my DH had to work so I had to keep an eye on the kiddos too.
I had 7 gals come by on Saturday. I was definitely better prepared! **Waves Hi to Dawn, Libby, Stephanie, Faith, Kathy, Melissa & Davinna!!**
Thanks so much for coming girls... it was so nice to finally meet some of you! I appreciate you taking time out of your busy schedules and coming to play with me!! And they can attest that I am CHEAP entertainment! I crack myself up sometimes and I'm glad I can make others laugh!
I am sorry I missed some ladies that wanted to come but couldn't. I hope we can meet up again in the future!
I was going to make those cute little purse candy holders that are the rage, but decided to change it up at the last minute! I used the Inspired By Nature set (FREE from Convention!!) and stamped up some gift bags. LOVE them! I used the Green Tea DSP too and they turned out so nice. Even if I did stamp the main image with the paper turned wrong way. So I had to improvise because I didn't want to redo them. Here's a picture...

Then I was trying to figure out what to put in them. A light bulb went on and I thought, 'Who wouldn't LOVE fresh picked peaches??' I picked some peaches Friday a.m. and every person who came to my Open House received a gift bag w/4 peaches in it.

Is that not just an AWESOME peach? I pick them at David Storch's farm. If you live locally and would like to check out his Upick (and he can pick it for you too) Farm, email me for his address and phone #. I love his farm. I have gotten GREAT produce from him! I've picked it all for myself and for others. We picked raspberries, blackberries, peaches, plums, apples, green beans, spaghetti squash, tomatoes, strawberries and corn! woo hoo.

THis post is getting a bit long so I will continue the Open House Goodies in the next post...

Here's a picture of the Diaper Cake I made for a baby shower last weekend. It was a lot of fun to make and I will be offering these for sale. They will be custom made and the price range will be between $25 - $40. They can be either 2 tier or 3 tier and have hidden 'goodies' on the inside or not! The sky's the limit.
