I just can’t believe it is already August! Time is certainly flying away and leaving me behind in many aspects of my life!

Bill (my hubby) had a very successful left hip replacement at the beginning of July, and most of my time has been helping him out, although he is practically fully recovered already! We are still being somewhat cautious because we don’t want to risk anything harmful. All in all, as busy as July was, it was a good month for our family.


On July 25th, we did get to have my Sunday Craftin’ Gals Gathering. We made it a Christmas in July as many others did. Trouble is, I want to continue doing Christmas because that is my favorite time of the year! But we must not forget Halloween and Thanksgiving. Here are some wonderful pictures from the event.

These are the cards and box we made! Thank you so much to Angie (Stamping With Amore) for her absolutely darling ideas. Also to Caroline from CA Russell Craft for her lovely ornament idea for which we totally cased! The gals were taught how to watercolor the background and just loved the card. The gals also thought the Gingerbread and Peppermint card and box was delightful! The Pop Up Gingerbread card was such a big hit! They were amazed at really how simple it was ~ barring doing the measurements and the scary cuts…:)

Here are other samples I made for that day…thank you again to Angie, and also to Mary Deatherage (Stamps n Lingers) for her gorgeous card using the Painted Christmas Suite. I duplicated it the best I could, but nothing like Mary’s sample. The two Gingerbread cards are the Pop-Up version also inside.


Now, just a reminder! TOMORROW, August 3rd, all of my customers will be able to order from the new July-Dec Mini Catalog AND take advantage of Sale-A-Bration! Yes, the 2nd Sale-A-Bration starts August 3rd also and runs through September 30th! Woo-Hoo! Purchase $50.00 of product and get a free item! Be sure to check out those brochures! There are some cute things in there. If you did not receive a catalog from my mailing list, and would like one, please let me know. I will be happy to get you one asap. I have to order more of the Mini’s and the Sale-A-Bration catalogs! They went fast! Well, I am going to close for today, but until next time…

Be kind to one another and make time for Creating With Paper.
