Sorry I have been absent! But blogging seems to be the first thing to get cut out of my schedule when life begins to get too busy. Since I last posted.....the kids have recovered from their pneumonia and have finally got caught up on their school work, Steve and I made a QUICK trip to southern Utah to take his mom back to meet his brother so she can make arrangements to move out here with us permanently....bro lives in Colorado (Utah was half way), our cat once again had a batch of the most adorable kittens in the world (more about that later), and we have begun the process of remodeling our home by converting our existing garage into a mother-in-law set up and building a new garage. So, WHEW! it's actually nice to be able to sit down, relax, and blog a bit.
I've also been working on a project for the women in our church to do at their "Creative Corner". Later this month they will be making a Greeting Card Organizer (or a Recipe or Photo Box). Since probably most of the women who will attend are not stampers....I tried to make this as simple and easy as possible. Here is a picture of the front of the box.....it's sitting on it's lid.
Also, since some women may not be into cards (image that!) I wanted to show them sample titles for their box.....they can just replace the word "Cards" with whatever they wish depending on how they think they will use it.
I also made dividers for the inside...6 total
I also made a card to match the box but I will show you that on another day.
I wanted to let you know that I used DSP that I purchased from Stampin' Up!'s Clearance Rack. If you haven't checked out the Clearance Rack....you better!!! SU is updating it frequently and you can find some GREAT DEALS!!! Either go to my right side bar and click on the Clearance Rack Icon or click HERE to go to my SU website and click on "Shop".
Ok, now about the kittens. We live in the country and so we keep a few outdoor cats around to keep the mice and other critters from taking up residence in our home. The Mama kitty VANISHED a few months ago and so we just thought she was gone for good....well 3 weeks ago she showed up VERY PREGNANT. She must have come home to have her brood. Well, long story short.....she had 6 adorable kittens. Here's a picture that I took this morning of 3 of them all cuddled up together...
Aren't they just ADORABLE??!!
It's photos like this that makes me wish I had a REALLY GOOD camera.
Well, that's it for me today....
Until next time, find some
time for stamping!!
