Oh So Busy!

Spring is always so busy, isn't it.  Between working full-time, updating my laundry room, making multiple trips to visit my parents in Virginia, church activities and services, there is very little time to stamp. This should not be!  We are travelling this week-end to visit our daughter at college and bring home some of her stuff.  She finishes exams next week and will be home for the summer--hooray!

Here are some pictures of the lotion jars I am working on.  I have plenty more to finish up. I think I like the fabric flowers better than the paper ones, so I have been working on those when I have a few minutes to kill between activities. 

I look forward to being able to post more frequently--very, very soon!

Remembering Easter

Our children grow up so fast!  I just finished preparing an Easter treat for my daughter and was feeling a little sad.  What happened to the time?  I still anticipate the pressures of finding the perfect suit with matching tie for my little boy whose shirt tail will be hanging out the back by the time we get to church.  And the fun times trying on hats to match my daughter's frilly Easter dress, hand-made by Grandma.  This year, it is just me and the hubby.  Our son is off in Chicago and our daughter will not be able to come home from college.  Church service will be awesome, Easter dinner quiet, but our Jesus is ALIVE and what more could we ask?

Here is the gift set I made to send to our daughter.  Hope she likes it!

A Long Week!

It has been such a long week for me.  I know it is because I am looking forward to going to my Mom and Dad's for the week-end and I will see my sister.  I have lived in North Carolina for over 20 years, but I still call Virginia "home".  Here are several projects I have worked on this week.  My evenings have been pretty hectic, so I don't have much to post, but hopefully I will have a gift ensemble to show tomorrow.

 I made this nugget tin for a co-worker who had a birthday this week.  Purple is her favorite color and she loves chocolate!

 This set of Thank-you's were cased from Becky Roberts (Inking Idaho).  I love, love her creations.  I found these clear acrylic boxes at Stamp on This.  They really give your card sets a professional look.

I love how this card turned out.  It says "Congratulations" the inside.  I thought it would make a nice graduation card--something a little different!  I pretty much copied a card by "Penquin Stamper".  She is another stamper that I just love to case!

Nature Walk Birthday

Such a beautiful day!  The sun is shining and we will see 85 degrees by this afternoon.  Makes me want to get outside--except for the pollen.  Oh well!  Maybe the downpour expected tomorrow will help that situation.  I had a little time in my craft room this week-end.  Here are two birthday cards I made using the Nature Walk set.

Thanks for looking!
