Bye Bye November

well, thanksgiving came and went.  mine was absolutely fabulous and i hope yours was too.
i gained 2 lbs... but then the scale fluctuates.  i still want to lose another 5 lbs and hopefully by xmas; then i will be a very happy camper with no fear of gaining 5-8 lbs over the holidays because i'll still be right where i want to be.  we shall see.

i'm still reorganizing and cleaning out my stamps and dies. it's been hard work.  hard by.. do i or don't i discard this or that?  yay, nay!  omg!  the decisions.  if i haven't used a stamp in at least 2 yrs, then, it's going into a package for a friend.  if i have enough of what i'm getting rid of, then i'm dividing it between 2 of my crafty, close friends.

at the moment, my fingers are black from cataloging (yes, i do that as i go along) and sore from all the paper.  i've already gone thru a tube of hand cream!!!!  but, trust me,  it IS worth it.

need i say that i have not done any creating at all???  good thing i have a huge stash.   so, here's one from my stash...

i LOVE those crazy birds!
cut the oval, cut out the bird and used one of my
many santa hat stamps, cut it out and placed it
on his little bird head!  added some sequents and
badda boom, badda bing!
super cute!

well, today is sunday, the last sunday of november.  it's been a great month.  

i closed my twitter account.  i cannot figure that thing out at all - not to mention it's nothing but doom and gloom and politics.  oh, and you know me, i get wordy and 147 words is not enough for me for one post!  i'll stick with FACEBOOK!!!

anyway, happy end of november.  now to get the christmas decorations out and let the parties begin!


  1. I love your card- going to have to CASE it! Glad you had a great Thanksgiving. I was at CDH with my Mother. She is doing well now, came home on Friday. I have to get through my stamps..... Oh boy, what a job!

  2. What a fun card Stef. I love the crazy birds.
    Sounds like you are being very organised with your stamps - I need to do something with mine because I know I have certain stamps but just can't find them LOL

  3. OMG! I LOVE THIS!!!! I too love the crazy birds, cats and dogs. I have used the birds but not in a holiday card. I need to CASE this, really love it!

  4. love your card. Must get this set of stamps. Good luck with your sorting, want to do my craft room? :) Skipper sends purrs to Neenah. Hope Neenah is doing well. Keep warm and safe both of you.

Short Post

a new month has begun.  december got here fast.... real fast.  i'm still looking for APRIL!!!

i'm just about done on my stamps.  i guess it's more of a cleaning up and out then a reorganizing because they're all still in the same place, save for the ones i no longer use and will ship them off to a few friends.  it's taken me 3 weeks! geeze louize!  way too many stamps... yet i keep buying more.  call me CRAZY!

anyway, no craftiness, no creating and not even working on my Etsy.. so this post is short.

enjoy each day and be thankful for it.  i'll be back soon.

New Chairs

so i trot off to my local consignment shop in search of a wine rack.  instead, i found 2 chairs that i fell in love with.  the price tags said $25 each.  well, i thought that was a steal so i bought them.  they were going to replace a loveseat.  the consignment shop took the loveseat.  is this great or what?

what's even more of a blessing is... when i went to pick up the chairs the store owner said ...
her: i'm so sorry but i made a mistake on the price of the chairs.
me:  oh?
her:  yes.  i rang up the wrong color price tag.  the tag was purple and i rang it up wrong.
me:  and????
her:  the chairs were 1/2 price!!! so instead of $25 each they are $13 each.
me:  you're kidding right?
her:  no.  i'm so sorry.
her:  amen

so she totally reversed the 1st charge and changed it to the new one.  now, for sure, i'm gonna LOVE these chairs!  they are sooooooo comfortable to.

truth is... GOD IS GOOD.

A New Journey

so i decided to try a new endeavor!  i went to a craft fair and picked up some YOUNIQUE makeup.  everyone raves about their mascara - which i DID NOT purchase.  i got me some liquid foundation and i absolutely love it. LOVE IT!  so i then treated myself to their PRIMER and a LIPSTICK.  well, holy moly!  that primer not only makes my skin feel sooooooooooooooo soft, but what i found out is that if you use primer the makeup DOES NOT sink into your skin, therefore leaving a smooth look!  now how cool is that????  as for the lipstick?  i finally found one that actually stays on ALL DAY!
needless to say, i heard it calling me.  so i got hold of a girl i know who sells it and..... BADDA BOOM, BADDA BING... i joined her team.

i am now holding my FIRST virtual party - which means... you can see, check out and purchase it all without even leaving your house!!!  the party runs until the 16th of this month.  sooooooooo, who want's to check it out and get me started?  you can find it all here…
