Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, New Jersey
I'm a stay at home Mom and a stamping fool. My husband, the love of my life, and I have four wonderful children aged 7, 5, 2 and 6 months. I spend most of my days taking care of the kids and the house, with very little stamping time. I have only been stamping for about 1 1/2 years, but I have a real passion for it and can't wait to have more time to stamp. For now I get most of my ideas from the great people from Split Coast Stampers and some awesome blogs that I visit on a daily basis. There are so many terrific ideas out there, I just can't get enough. So please join me on my journey to find my creative side, I'm sure we'll have lots of fun along the way. Thanks for stopping by and remember to "Keep On Stampin".

Jenn's Monthly Card Swap

Hello all! Yesterday was Jenn's, friend and fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrator, monthly card swap. But due to my son's temper tantrum I was not able to stay and make any cards. But all of the kind ladies that do attend were gracious enough to make my cards for me. I also heard that I missed out on some great Zuchinni Crescent Pie - what a bummer! These are days I wish my kids were all in school so I can attend things during the day by myself. I guess that will happen soon enough, so I better enjoy this time with the boys while their still young. In about 5 years I can start to enjoy some mommy time, until then I'll just have to deal with all the bumps in the road that come my way.

The following are some of the cards that were made at the swap.

My card - I used Stampin' Up! Flight of the Butterfly and Inspired By Nature stamp sets.

Laureen's card - she used Close to My Heart's Hello Friends stamp set.

Rachel's card - she used Cornish Hertiage Farms U R A Hoot stamp set.

Jenn's card - she used Stampin' Up! Under the Stars stamp set.

Tina's card - she used Stampin' Up! Just Jawing stamp set and Scary Skulls wheel.

Meg's card - she used several different punches (circle punches, scallop circle punch, round tab punch, boho blossoms punch, oval punches) and Stampin' Up! Fresh Cuts stamp set for sentiment.

Hope you enjoyed some of the swap cards, I will post some more as I get permission from the ladies to do so. Thanks for stopping by and Keep on Stampin'.

Back to School Time!

Hi fellow stampers, bloggers and friends! It's that time of year again when all the little kiddies go back to school. Should I dare say HOORAY! This year both my girls started school, Riley, 2nd grade, and Dana, in kindergarten. So that leaves me home with my 2 boys. Both of them are fairly easy, my soon to be 3 year old gives me a little trouble, nut that's minimal compared to what his older sis Dana put me through. The following is a picture of my girls as we were leaving for school.

Update: The girls 1st day at school was great. They both love their teachers and have already made some new friends. Of course, they were so happy to see all their old friends too.
