Mixed Bag

well, it's been cold.  very cold.  we have about 6" of snow and they predict about 4 more inches today and then the temps bottom out with tomorrow's high in the minus.  if it's that cold in the morning, i will not be leaving the house.  not even for church.  the guilt will bother the hell out of me, but hey!  i'm an old fogey and that's just too cold.  even with thermals i won't be warm.

on another note, i made my goal with my first party of YOUNIQUE!  thank you to all who placed an order.  i love the product.  LOVE IT and i hope whoever else uses or tries it, does too.  if you would like to take a look, you can find my site here.. GLITTERBABES GLAMOUR   if you would like a catalog, i can email you a PDF version or send you one (as soon as i get the paper one).  just leave me a PM on my page.

my fingers are cracked and sore because of the paper i've been handling lately, but i did get to play a little - even tho mojo is on his winter vacation (the little rat).  here's a card i had fun with...

this WAS fun.  took a fall leaf stamp, stamped and hand-cut it.
i added the black lines myself; then some stickers.  not bad huh?

i think i'm done with the christmas card rush.  didn't send out many this year.  my motto is... if i get one, i send one.  between the church list and my personal list, it's just way too long (close to - if not over 200) and i really don't have even that many christmas cards on hand!  soooooo, if you didn't send me a card, i didn't send you one.  but i DO wish you and yours a very merry, very happy and very blessed holiday season!

thank you for your visits during this past year and your fabulous comments.  i'm glad i still blog.  it keeps us in touch.


  1. Love the card Stef and I'm glad to hear you made your target.
    Weather in my part of the UK isn't too chilly at the moment but because of the damp we are getting lots of heavy mist & fog - I went to a crop yesterday and drove all the way there & back in thick fog as it didn't really lift all day.
    Do keep yourself safe & warm and I wish you & the family a wonderful Christmas.

  2. Great card Stef. I hope you're finding ways to keep warm. Have a great holiday.

  3. what a fun card, Stef! I have to say I did the happy dance when I saw the comment from you on my blog just now! thank you sooooooo much for stopping by! you made my day!!!!

    with all of the new changes the silly blogger dashboard has gone through, I can't for the life of me find my list of blogs I'm following. I really hate when the powers that be mess with things that are working just fine. oh well. just saying I'm so sorry I haven't been by in ages or seen you on Facebook. maybe new settings? who knows these days what the little gremlins are up to! ;)

    anyhow, I wish you and your precious family a very Merry Christmas! enjoy enjoy enjoy!!! :)

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…
