Summer time is HERE



To a teacher, the arrival of June always means the arrival of relaxation, lazy days, and sweet, sweet summer.  (well, with littles, that’s not always the case, but life IS less hectic during the summer).image



So, I love using this leaf stamp from the Lighthearted Leaves stamp set (now retired) in a bit of a ‘non-traditional’ way (pinks???).  But, I love it!!  It’s cheerful and bold and fun…  all that summer is.  imageHead over to see what Anne and Cheryl have for you!


A Nice Cuppa



Here’s a little treat bag for your crafting pleasure.  I made this last month in my Stamp Clubs.  Wanted something to celebrate the Valentine holiday, but not too ‘in your face’.  I wanted it to be able to be used any time.


I love the little kraft treat bags from Stampin’ Up!  You can get a pack of 10 for $3.50!  It’s a steal!  And, I made up a handful to have on hand…just so they were available when I needed to give a little gift … or treat…


The ‘A Nice Cuppa’ stamp set was a lot of fun to play with.  I love tea cups.  I wish I enjoyed hot tea more.  Well, I do enjoy it.  When it is cold out.  Its just that I am rarely cold enough to feel the need to drink hot tea…  anyway…


The framelits make cutting the cup and the tag and the steam out VERY easy.  And, a little glimmer paper for the heart…  I used Wink of Stella to add the accent to the  cup and to the steam.  (HAVE YOU TRIED STELLA YET????  You NEED TO.)

Anwyay, super fun, super fast.  EASY!!

Write a note, make a note


Welcome back to the 2nd installment of my countdown to the Maui Stampers’ and Friends Christmas Craft Fair.  Today we have implements to write notes and make notes!!

First up is the little gift note bundle!  Little bags that have a set of 4 cards and a post-it and pen.  I love these little bags.  They are the perfect little gift.  It’s nice to have on hand, just when you need a little gift for someone.









I’m really in to burlap these days, so these bags were a perfect find when I was doing my yearly crafting stock-up shopping…


And these flowers are so cheery!!  Not that we have to worry about the winter blues here, but they are the perfect cure for those… It would be a good gift to send to the mainland right now…


And, these clipboards are the perfect place to keep your notes handy.  I have about 5.  I love them cause they hang perfectly on those command hooks just at arm’s reach for all your ‘I need to remember…’ jotting down..



imageAnd, you probably guessed, I don’t have too many of these either… so come early!!


See you Saturday!

I love fall.  LOVE IT.  It’s a bit ironic that I live in a place where fall is, well, not fall.  (AND, it’s especially not fall so far this year cause we’ve had record setting warm temperatures…so incongruent with what the rest of the country seems to be doing…)  BUT… I will be soaking in the sunshine come January… 🙂

That’s neither here nor there…

Like I said, I love fall.  And one of my most FAVORITE things about fall is Candy Corn!  Love it.  Love eating it whole, AND layer by layer.  Now, I’m a Candy Corn purist.  And, the stuff that LOOKS like candy corn but comes out at Easter in the pastel colors.  Not. The. Same. Thing.

Anyway, I loved this little Candy Corn stamp…  and my watchful bats to keep people from stealing my candy corn…  🙂  Sorry, the set retired last year… but still fun.



I love changing the months to a new calendar page!  Even though I made them and know what is coming, it’s so fun to see the change!  Like a little surprise at the start of each month!!
