seeing multiples...

Am I relaxing...YES, with my little men in tow. Two days into summer vacation and I have to say I LOVE IT! I have unplugged the alarm clock (to save on electricity of course) and have enjoyed two days now of lying in bed just a few minutes longer each morning. The only thing is now I have two boys keeping me on my toes and making sure there is always something fun just around the corner. So as I put down my craft supplies (which many of you probably know can be difficult sometimes) our schedule is filling up.

First things first...the WINNER of the giveaway was Jessica! I will send these off to you next week. Remember to hop on over to
Maple Sugar Lane to see her new items. I know that she has a few new items to share. If only I had a little girl.

I had so many amazing projects for my article this month and would love to see more! Here is just a little reminder in case you missed it... Magazine is always looking for talented people and creative projects to publish in each issue. I am currently in search of altered art (i.e. gifts, mini albums, tags) to publish in the September issue. If you have a project you think would be a good fit for the magazine please contact me at I would love to see your projects and possibly use them in an upcoming issue.

Current UTurn Call - So Thankful: With the coming of Fall and the season of giving, send us projects that show your gratitude for the ones you love.

Here are a few things I have been doing over the last few days...

I have never before seen a background stamp as large as the one I received from Paper Garden Projects, but WOW! This cover-a-card tapestry 2 stamp is fabulous! Make sure to come back by for the garden walk on June 19th to see a much larger project featuring this stamp.
Of course...can't get enough felt and make sure to check out my shop over the weekend for a special listing of these and now with more wool blend flower like the ones shown above!

Finally, my sweet and thoughtful. I opened a package from her today to find all of these wonderful vintage buttons inside. Oh what fun I will have searching through them and using each and every one.

Now to go sneak in a nap before my youngest wakes up. Probably not likely, but I have to try.

Until Sunday when we are back to our 365 Cards Challenge day! Enjoy your Friday and Saturday!



  1. Those Impression Obsession background stamps are awesome. Woodgrain and Lg. Dots are my favorite! I have a ton of examples on my blog. There are some new additions that were added recently
    Love your tags!

  2. Woo Hoo...thank you!!! Just wait for me to buy some stuff tonight :) I'm happy!!! Enjoy your weekend, Andrea!

  3. Congrats on having your project published!
