Happy November

can time fly any faster?  geeze louize!  i had more time when i worked than i have being retired!!!!  i cannot believe it is november.  the good part is... we still don't have to wear jackets or coats.  the weather has been fabulous and the colors are magnificent!

i've been busy in my craftroom working on xmas cards.  mojo has been really good lately (watta guy).

 this was total fun and super easy
all stickers!

saw this on PINTEREST and CASED it.

took a ride to goodwill.  i must admit.... i love that place.  i always find some great stamps and clothes.  i was in the market for a "cover up" and look what i found...

this is suede AND the label says EVAN PICONE!
it was only $7.  is that a steal or what.
the best part....  it's an XL.  
yep... those 50 lbs i lost took me completely
out of plus sizes!  FINALLY!
it's been 16 yrs trying to lose that 
weight - and without luck.
but i FINALLY did it!!!

have a great week and thanks for stopping by!


  1. Great cards Stef. Well done on your weight achievement and obtaining a great bargain.

  2. Congrats on the weight loss - I bet you look fine and dandy in that new jacket! Lovely cards - I'm still pecking away at mine. ~chris

  3. Woo who! Congrats on the weight loss Stef! And very nice jacket btw! I have never found stamps at Goodwill. Where would I look? Love the cards. That bow is awesome. Babysitting today and tomorrow fro little Valerie while Mom and Dad visit Arthur in the hospital. I sure hope he can come home soon. Lots of nice weather here too. Great for November. I'd take this year round. Have a wonderful weekend!

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…
