Cupcake Dolls


Our friend Shelley Overholt makes the cutest dolls using Catherine Moore's Character Constructions paper doll stamps.  One day last year I was reading her blog "Honey Lamb & I" and saw those dolls.  I commented that she should have a giveaway and I should win.  She brought me one just cuz she's sweet like that.....Last summer she sent several to Somerset to see if they were worthy of the Art Doll Quarterly publication.  Guess what?!  They were and they are featured in the current edition which just came out.

Now, the USA girl in my photo is hers.  She inspired me to make the Valentine girl in the picture beside it.  I asked her if she or we could teach a class and she said we could.  She's a busy mom of 3, a speaker for the American Heart Association and a busy crafter and really doesn't have the time.  So Valentine cupcake girl is my first and if you think you might be interested in taking a class to make her and several others, let us know......

Valentine Postcard Swaps
We are so excited about the postcard swap!  We got a ginormous number back to swap that you are gonna be excited to see what you didn't get..... so as you know, I'll photo all of them and post them on the Facebook Page.  Don't worry if you aren't a Facebook user....   You don't have to use Facebook to see our business page.  Just click on the icon on the left side of our blog page and it'll take you there. 

That's it for now..... Until next post..... Happy Stampin'

Valentine Postcard Swap


Valentine Post Card Swaps are due Saturday (the 12th).  We've already gotten quite a few in and I must say that based on the name tags we have fabulous entries!  You can pick them up next Saturday (the 19th), which is Demo Day.....  I can't wait for you to see them... heck, I can't wait to see them.  I always wait until I photo them cuz I like to be surprised.  I'll be working into the wee hours of tonight and probably most of the day tomorrow on mine.  I work best under pressure..... hmmm..... anybody else work like that?  I'll probably see you tomorrow when you drop off your swaps.  Hee Hee!

Demo Day, as mentioned above, is next Saturday.  We have a really cute spring card in mind.....  Lisa never really knows for sure until the night before so it's always a surprise for me!  We should have some new things in for you to see...... and what a relief to get out after all this snow!

That's it for now..... Until next post..... Happy Stampin'

New Ribbons & Mrs. O'Leary's

In spite of the snow we were able to receive a shipment or two.  We received a box of lovely new ribbons and we have now gathered a wonderful collection of Mrs. O'Leary's unmounted rubber stamps.

New Ribbons
Check it out!  Duo-toned 1/4 inch and 1/16th inch.  Really sweet......
New mini velvets....... extra sweet!
Ruffled organza..... so beautiful and dainty

Mrs. O'Leary's
We've wanted to do this for quite a while and now we have.  Totally unmounted just for you.  Images of all sizes and priced to move.  Just mount in your preferred manner.  Cling or on wood..... you decide, but don't miss this opportunity to get some quality rubber for a really good price.

Totally excited about all the new things both here and to come.  

Valentine Post Card Swap
Don't forget that the swaps are due next Saturday.  Plan is to photo and sort so we can return them to you on Demo Day which is February 19th!  We have gotten a few in already and let me just say...... OUTSTANDING!  But then, we have the most exciting artists out there and no one is ever disappointed that they participated......

That's it for now..... Until next post..... Happy Stampin'!

Still Snowed In

Wednesday, February 2, 2011

It's another snow day for the schools and the weather people say we should all stay inside and keep warm.  Since the snow crews are concentrating on the "Snow Routes" and Pennsylvania is NOT one of those, we will not be open today.  My husband "borrowed" my all wheel drive Suburu Outback Wagon.  He reported that only people with SUV's, trucks, & all terrain vehicles should attempt to get out with the snow drifts in neighborhoods and parking lots.  There are a lot of stranded cars that still need to be rescued. If things clear up during the day today, we will be open tomorrow, but please call first before venturing out.   

That's it for now...... Until the next post..... Happy Stampin'!
