My sister, Deanna, sent me a box of DeBrand Fine Chocolates & I have just finished eating the last one! I was looking at their catalog to see which one I liked the best & couldn't decide, so thought I would share some of them with you & give you their website. Here are a few:

European Heart - Pure milk chocolate blended with finely ground hazelnuts to make a silky smooth consistency with a nutty taste. (pure creamy enjoyment)

Apricot Cream - Tart apricot pieces in a smooth apricot cream covered in dark chocolate (exquisite!)

DeBrand Caramel - Rich, buttery caramel (almost sinful)

Raspberries & Cream - Pure, smooth raspberry, topped with tart raspberry juice, covered in milk chocolate (if you love raspberry milkshakes, you'll die over this one)

Here's their site:

I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas! To make up for the lack of posts lately, here are 4 more cards that I received at a swap.

Friday, December 19, 2008


I loved my Mom's peanut butter fudge! However, neither myself nor my sister, Denise, can seem to make it come out right. It seems Deanna, my youngest sister, can. Frustrating, but I'm sure God has a good reason for this. Here's the rest of the story. The first Christmas after my Mom died, Denise & I spent Christmas with Deanna. She was such a joy! Her tree was huge, decorated & all lit up. There were stockings on the mantle for each of us. A bowl of fruit on the dining table. (can you tell that this was quite unusual for us to see?) Groceries were bought for the big meal - turkey and all of the trimmings! Cookies & pies were made. Wine and cheese while the turkey was roasting. And the best part? She had made peanut butter fudge for Denise & I - what a joyous day! There's a couple more parts to this story. Denise & Deanna came home for Christmas the year before my Mom passed away. Denise & I made the fudge. It didn't turn out. So, I said we need to make it again tonight till we get it right, because making it just once a year is not working. Practice makes perfect right? Well, we tried 2 more times & still it was not right. Of course, Mom & Deanna just had so much fun with this. To have Deanna make it just once, & have it come out perfectly was just not possible, I thought. I am pretty sure Mom was helping her. Thanks Mom. So, Denise & I were talking a couple of weeks ago & Denise was saying how she would like Deanna to come & be her personal chef. Deanna is back in her cooking/baking mode. She says it relaxes her. Can you believe that? It is one of my stressors. I tell Denise I would rather have some peanut butter fudge. Last year we didn't get any. (we did get some wonderful chocolates) Denise agreed she would like some fudge. She suggested I bring it up with Deanna. I said no way. If I ask, she won't do it. You should ask, I said. Now to the latest on this story. Last week, Deanna e-mailed pictures of her tree and fireplace from her new home so I called her to say how pretty everything looked. "I'm not seeing any peanut butter fudge in the stockings," I said. Deanna replied, no you don't. But, nice try. Last night she called & asked I had gotten my mail lately & I told her no. She then asked how I get Fed Ex deliveries. I explained, they knock & if no answer, they leave a note. I think you should go check now, explained Deanna. There it was - a delivery notice from UPS & Fed Ex. Okay, so I'll get it tomorrow. We talked a few more minutes, and then said good-bye. An hour or so goes by, Denise should be home from work, I want to call her to see if she got any peanut butter fudge in the mail today, but I know she'll be tired & doesn't like talking to people on the phone so I resist the urge. Then my phone rings. It's Denise. I pick up the phone & say hello, I was just thinking of you! She says, I have instructions from Deanna to call you & say I am eating peanut butter fudge! lol Now, you know my sisters!

Two Little Reindeer

This is probably my favorite card for this Christmas season! I was going thru a recent issue of Creating Keepsakes magazine and ran across a page that used burlap. This was back on Dec. 7. Earlier this week I tried to find it to no avail. One should probably clean out their car on a daily basis - we would be surprised at how much stuff we leave in there. Cleaning out my car, I found another magazine and located the page much to my delight!

The designer used burlap on her page and I thought it was an amazing idea. I even had some in my closet that I had bought 2 years ago for another project that never got made. The next step was to choose a sketch & that I found in our current Idea Book & Catalog. It was perfect. Then I was on to choosing the color combo. First, I decided I wanted to use this yummy ribbon. From there I went to chocolate chip cs (my fav colors this year) & then I chose the stamp yet. The button at the top was the perfect accessory.

Hope you like it!

I'm back. I haven't been doing much stamping till today, I have a new Christmas card designed and almost finished. I am doing another Stamp-a-Stack Friday. I need 3 more designs.

I've been feeling kind of blue. If you could post a comment, or two, I would love to hear from you.

For those of you not in Topeka, we got a few inches of snow this morning. Too nasty for me to get out. KC wanted to look out the door this morning. I've been opening the door to get some fresh air & to see what the weather has been like, and today KC wanted me to open it. How cute!!

I have invited my friends, Nancy & Richard, over for chili Saturday evening. I would like to make a pumpkin cheesecake but the odds are pretty slim of that happening.

My sister, Denise, just got back from a long weekend in Arizona visiting some of our family there. Sounds like they had a great time!

Oh no, I forgot I have some big news. Zadie is going to have a brother or sister come next June!!! She tells her friends at pre-school that the new baby takes all of her Mom's food - that's why her Mom is so sick! How adorable!

MIA Again

Well, I have been mia again. Friday night was our monthly Stampin Up Demonstrator meeting. I got up Friday morning at 730am to work on my swaps. We were asked to make 10, but only about half showed up. Oh well.

The rest of the day was spent getting ready for the craft fair at the Crestview Community Center. I think this is my last one. I'm not getting the response that I want. I sense that others are in the same boat. I did, however, enjoy hanging out with Stacy, Shelly & her friend Melanie. They all had great ideas & crafts!!! So, after the fair, I stopped at Hy-Vee for groceries, came home & made chili, went to bed & got up for a few hours Sunday morning then took a nap til the Chiefs came on at 305p.

I am getting requests for Reindeer Poop. I am happy to make them for you. I sold quite a few Saturday. They are $2.00.

Later tonight, I will post another item for you. It also has very cute poem. See you tonight!

Welcome Christmas

I'm back! I enjoyed Thanksgiving with my cousins Beth & Sherry & my Great-Aunt Clo, & their families. Sunday, I fixed my dinner at home. It was designed to eat during the Chiefs game which was to start at 3:15. The dinner came together very well. It was a relaxing and stress-free morning of cooking with no problems. Everything turned out so well. The problem? I was tired, I fell asleep watching the game & had to watch it later that night.

I finally have my printer plugged back in and can show you my last project using the Felt Flurries. I really like how it turned out. Hope you like it too.

It's Turkey Day!

It's finally here. Hope you all are cooking up a storm and will enjoy dinner with loved ones today.

I disconnected my printer the other day, so I can't share a card with you yet. Check back tomorrow.

I will be going to my cousin's this afternoon to share a meal with her family. Later tonight I will make my pie and salad and have the turkey and trimmings tomorrow. Yummo.

Huge Savings From Stampin Up

Oh my gosh. In the many years I have been with Stampin Up, I have never seen a promotion like the Holiday Extravganza!!! They have bundled up their products to fit every possible need you could have and then discounted them up to 50%! It is a good time to be a demo. That's on top of my regular discount. But wait, it is only for 6 days, so you might want to go to my website and get what you want now before they run out.

Go to - click on Stampin Up Products, Shop Now, Specials, then Holiday Extravaganza.

Boy, what an appropriate title for this morning's post! Everything was going along just fine until I tried to upload my photo. My photography program wouldn't upload to my computer. Then I discovered neither would my browser. I called ATT DSL Support. She said I had a weak signal according to the test they ran. Can I just say, it is so hard to understand another's accent. It's frustrating and time consuming. At one point, she asked that I unplug the dsl cable from the splitter and plug it directly into the phone jack. Duh! Guess what, I disconnected her call. However, she did call right back. She then says she will need to have a tech call me within 2-4 hours. I forgot to mention the stash of cables woven around my desk, floor, fax and printer. Not to mention the stuff I had laying on the floor in front of them that needed to be put away. It took me way to long to find the right cable. That must have been frustrating for her, huh? So now I decide to clean up my mess, starting first by untangling everything. I had to unplug the fax & printer and store them elsehere until I dealt with the cables. The dust was disgusting. I could easily become a neat freak! But, I digress. It is now 2 hours later and I have fixed my own problem! Whew!

Here is post for the day. It is a small cello bag filled with chocolate-covered raisins. I have 7 done and plan to make 14 more for an upcoming craft fair. To read the poem, click on the photo to enlarge it.

Denise & Deanna

I made this card for my sisters, Denise & Deanna. Thanksgiving is all about family to me, but since my Mom died, that has pretty much been pushed to the wayside. My family is miles apart from each other. Now, I have to run to the Post Office. I hope each of you have a wonderful holiday.

Thanksgiving Dinner

Many of you have probably planned, and shopped for, your Thanksgiving dinner. I would love to hear what will be on your menu. Please click on response at the end of this post and share with all of us.

Here's mine: turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, rolls, maybe a salad and/or a pie.

Have A Very Merry Christmas

Okay, so here's the story on this card. First, this is the second of my challenges for Lisa using the Felt Flurries. Second, this is the card I told you other day I needed to fix one little thing. Well, initially, I had stamped the word Christmas on the oval, but somehow the last letter got smudged, so I wanted to restamp it before posting. I finally decided to take care of it this morning. Guess what? I can't remember, and can't find, the stamp set I used. I have gone thru 200 plus stamp sets plus I've gone thru my spreadsheet where I keep a list of all my stamps and still can't figure out which one I used. That was way too much work. Finally, decided to go with a different one. Hope you like it!

Recently, my friend, Lisa, gave me some of these adorable Felt Flurries from Stampin Up and asked me to come up with a few ideas on how to use them for our next meeting. Here's my first project. I also am working on a 12" x 12" scrapbook page. It is beautiful! I can't wait to show you, but I'm wanting to use our Rub-ons for the title. They are 20% off this month with a $20 order.

Busy, Busy, Busy

I've been a busy little bee this morning. You'll notice Stampin Up links on the left side of my blog including our current catalogs, promotion and retired stamps for sale. Also, I have added a few blogs I visit often. Enjoy!

Freddie the Frog

Is he not the cutest little frog you have ever seen? Did you notice that he hops? If you pull/push the little red pompom, he will hop up and down! I found this on fellow demo Heather Summers' blog. She is just awesome. I am going to try to post a link to it here so you can visit her.

Musings on This Thursday Morning

Today, along with Mondays, is Hot Wings at Applebee's for only 30 cents a wing. These are sooooo good. It is a good day for America. (smiling)

I'm also looking forward to tonight's episode of Dr. Drew's Celebrity Rehab. One of the celebrities this season is Gary Busey. He was just plain weird. I'm sorry but I could not have been as nice to him, and tolerant, as were the others he was in rehab with. But, on the last episode, Dr. Drew explained to everyone how Gary's head injury from a motorcycle accident damaged his brain & how it is affecting his behavior now. It'll be interesting to see how I feel about him by the end of the show.

Last night I had my first stamp-a-stack class. It was a marathon night of stamping! It took us a little over 3 hours to stamp 20 cards and envelopes!!!! Talk about rockin 'em out. It was a great time, though. KC seems to be enjoying have comany over now, too. He loves your purses!!!

I have a card for you, but will have to post it later today. It needs one tiny little correction.

Hope your day is filled with many happy smiles.

Ketchup or Mustard on Your Hot Dog?

Good morning everyone! This is a swap for our monthly demonstrator meeting which was last week. I wasn't feeling well, so did not attend. One of the fun things we do in our meetings is a swap. What is a swap? Each demo makes x amount of cards and each person at the meeting gets one! You end up with multiple cards with different designs & products being showcased! Also, each month is a different theme. This month was manly cards. If any of you are interested in becoming a demo and would like to join me at a future meeting, please let me know.

This card features the stamp sets Voila to Go & Cheers to You. Sometimes a design just goes together so easily, but not this one. It took many trys to get it to a place where I was happy with it. I used a technique called masking. It's easy once you learn it plus it gives you a great deal of interest to your design.

As always, I am happy to help, show you, with any of your stamping needs.

Here's the last of my 4 designs for my Stamp-a-Stack class. Instead of layering the Whisper White on top of the Baja Breeze, I punched out the 3 windows and the Whisper White is on the back side. With a little measuring it's as easy as 1-2-3. If you would like to make these cards, please let me know. I can be a little flexible on the dates and times.

KC Chiefs

Today was Chiefs day. We didn't win, but it was an enjoyable game anyway. Tyler Thigpen had a string of 161 pass attempts without a pick until today. That's pretty darn good! There were some awesome catches today, too. Good passing is good football to me. Go Chiefs!

Thank You

This is a little note card (3" x 3") I found made by fellow demo Heather Summers. I've always loved this DSP and Stamp Set. I recently gave it to a friend for placing orders with me. I'd like to be able to do this for more of my customers.

Stampin Up -Love You Much Promo

Stampin Up has just announced a promo for Valentines. It includes a new stamp set & punch that will appear in our new catalog Jan. 2009. The new punch has 3 different sizes of hearts! Be sure to check out our current promos at


It's been quite a month for a couple members of my family. My Grandmother has been in & out of the hospital for a month. The doctors have been unable to find the problem. Wish I could be with her.

My cousin Beth's husband, Randy, finally got his problem resolved. He was released from the hospital a couple of days ago. Hope he has no further issues. He has quit smoking - I'm so proud of him! Beth is not smoking around him. She says she goes outdoors. Way to go Beth!!

Happy Holidays

Here is another card for my stamp-a-stack class. This isn't too fru-fru (spelled correctly?) so I think it would be a nice card to send to a gentleman. What do you think? You can click on comment & let me know. I have another one I'll try to show you tomorrow.

Stampin Up has featured Riding Hood Red and Chocolate Chip in this DSP. I think these are my favorite Christmas colors this year. Come to think of it, I have been using them for a few years as my little tree is decorated with Gingerbread Men. Will post a picture when I get it up.

I have been missing in action for awhile, I apologize. First, my camera wasn't working correctly. Second, and my goal is to not bring this up too much, I struggle with depression. For the record, I'm in counselling, I'm working with an ARNP to find a med that works, I have a hobby, and I keep in contact with friends. Unfortunately, nothing is really working as this has been going on for several years. It is a very difficult place to be in. So, I only ask that you be patient with me.

I would like to say thank you to my friend, Lisa. She has kept me going these last couple of months with our stamping get-togethers. She says I am helping her, which I am thankful for, but I'm not sure she knows how much she is helping me. It has been so huge, I can't find the words to express them with. So, all I can do is say - thank you.

As to my camera, it is a well know name but they don't sell cameras anymore so they don't provide any technical support. That has been sold to another company who won't even help you over the phone, you have to send it to them! I then found a website forum that you can post your problem and others will try to post a solution. Well, no such luck for me so I took it to the Geek Squad at Best Buy. Apparently, the still picture and the multiple picture mode have been reversed. Problem figured out. It still works. No charge. God Bless the Geek Squad!

I have several Christmas cards to show you, plus a few other items that I will post later. Please visit my website for all of my events.

It's 1:07 am, I have my days & nights switched around. KC is all curled up and asleep on the sofa. Poor baby, he was all by himself today while I was asleep. Nobody to give him a snack, nobody to give him some cold water from the frig (he has plenty of food and water available, but it is just not the same - egads), nobody to talk to, nobody to love him. Yes, I know he is spoiled. Yes, I know I am responsible. Thank goodness I didn't have kids!

I Love You Mom

This is Zadie. She is the daughter of my cousin, Tonya. I was 18 when Tonya was born, and I was the closest family living to her when she was growing up. I didn't spend as much time with her as I would have liked, but I managed to see basketball & volleyball games, and attend a couple of her competitions in which she performed on the flag team. What fun that was! My goal was to provide here with an "older sister" like my cousin Mary K. did for me. I don't think I achieved that, but at least I was there for her some of the time.

Zadie. Isn't she adorable? Now, I know why scrapbooking supplies lean toward children. You will probably be seeing more of Zadie here as she is extra special to me, because she was born on my birthday!

Scrapbooking - Here's An Idea

Over the years, we may have created recipe scrapbooks and countless scrapbooking gifts. How about something very personal, reflective - and adventurous - type of scrapbooking: family values.

Family values, things that make your family uniquely yours. That's everything! Family values can range from family traditions, to habits and goals you share, to activities you enjoy together. The cool thing about these types of albums is that they're thematic rather than sequential or based on a timeline. Each spread can be about a different theme and include pictures from any point in time. As long as the pictures represent the theme of your page, you're good to go. (That's why this project is adventurous.)

Suppose your family has a tradition of spending Sundays together at local parks. You might also have words from your Grandfather that you would like to preserve with these photos like "family is the most important thing in this life; there is always time for family." What a wonderful keepsake for your family or just for yourself. It's fun to look at a visual representation of the ideas and traditions that make your family one-of-a-kind.

Another idea, how about one for your children? A family values scrapbook can be very rewarding because it causes you to focus on what you really believe. We may act on our values all of the time, but not state them overtly. A scrapbook like this causes you to verbalize what is important to you and your family.

This is my favorite type of scrapbook because it's always a work in progress!

When you finish one spread, you can put the book away and revisit it next month when you have some time or the next day if inspiration strikes. It's incredibly satisfying to be able to put a scrapbook away without the feeling that there's one more spread you have to do.

Please let me know if you are interested in a class on this type of scrapbook.

Witchy Woman

Isn't she adorable? I found this on Linda Heller's blog yesterday morning. She is a fellow Stampin Up (aka SU) demonstrator and is so talented!

The hat is made from Orchid Opulence, Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White and Basic Black cardstock using the Large Oval & Star Punches, 1/4" 1/8" and 1/16" handheld punches.

Punch the large oval, fold in half, then unfold it and cut an opening in the fold line using an Exacto Knife. Cut just enough for the point to slide thru. Punch out the star, cut off all points except one and adhere a strip of Pumpkin Pie grosgrain ribbon around it.

Adhere her face under the brim of the hat. Punch out the eyes using 1/4" and 1/8" Handheld Punches and adhere. Using the fine point of the Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker, draw a mean smile and eyebrows. Punch out another large star using Kiwi Kiss and cut one of the points in half to use for her nose. Adhere. Don't forget to add the wart. I used Basic Black cardstock.

For her hair, I took a piece of Black 1/4" grosgrain ribbon. At one of the ends, start pulling one of the threads, keep pulling till you get almost to the top. You want to leave a little bit.

Stamp Club - A November Project

Can you smell the turkey? Oh my gosh, it's six weeks till Thanksgiving! What is your favorite Thanksgiving menu? Feel free to share your recipes with all of us. I'm alway looking for something new to try.

This year's stampin club is starting up. I thought this would be a great card to do next month. If you would like to join, please let me know.

What is a club? It usually consists of 10 ladies who meet at my place once a month and lasts for 10 months. We stamp at least 3 projects. I provide the supplies. At the meeting, each person purchases a minimum of $15.00 in Stampin' Up! products - this is a great & affordable way to build up your stash. In return, each person gets to be the Hostess one month and receives a FREE stamp set from Stampin' Up's exclusive hostess collection plus at least $15 in FREE merchandise. These amounts can increase depending on how much each person spends or if the hostess that month brings outside orders or guests who purchase. If for some reason, you are not able to attend, notify me beforehand what you wish to order and make sure you get your money to me prior to the meeting. Us stampers don't like to wait on our orders! LOL

Mom & KC Playing

Here's Mom & KC. How could you not fall in love with that?

A New Blogger Is Born

I have joined the blogging family! My goal is to provide you with paper crafting projects and share a little bit about myself. I can't wait to hear from all of you!

For now, I will tell you that it is 8:23 in the morning and because I couldn't sleep last night, I am playing. KC is sitting on the floor beside me, and demanding attention so I will have to stop here & come back later.
