What a great day! My counter that I added in May says I've had just over 10,000 hits, thanks to all my blog viewers! I think that deserves some blog candy, right??? Leave a comment to this post with your contact information and a lucky reader will win 2 stamp sets! They will be a Congratulations set (because I'm congratulating MYSELF!) and a Note of Thanks notecard set with 2 stamps and 4 notecards with envelopes because I'm thanking YOU!
Also, my friend Sherrill Graff chose me as one of her featured artists on her blog Wednesday. I sent her 2 projects that I haven't posted here. The explosion box is on it's way to being a tutorial here soon though. I do my explosion boxes a little differently though, so you can see all the pictures when it is opened instead of having to lift all the flaps. Here is the link!
I've been canning pears, I spent hours yesterday cutting, peeling and coring. All the jars sealed too, they look so pretty. I have lots more pears to can though so I'll be busy the next week! Then my son is getting married 2 weeks from tomorrow so I'll be busy getting ready for that, I'll be doing some centerpieces for the rehearsal dinner and the programs for the wedding. It is a fall theme so I will enjoy that, I've always loved the fall colors. Life is good :~)
Here is a picture of one of the project boards at the Stampin' Up convention. The projects all use the All In The Family stamp set. The upper right one is to announce a new baby and has a little pull out with the baby on it. Too cute! Wendy, want to make them for your new little guy? I thought the doghouse one was very funny. I think I wouldn't need to put a magnet on the back of my husband's picture though. I could just permanently glue him in the doghouse since he stays there all the time anyway!
