Blog Change Again

Hi there! I am moving back to Blogger. In the process I will be attempting to move over 200 posts!! We'll see how that pans out.

But the plan is to be functional here once again by Jan 3/4. Wish me luck. :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Wishing you a blessed Christmas! 


We will be celebrating with my husband's family this weekend which is always a good time.  Hopefully the weather will cooperate for everyone travelling.

Watch for the new mini-catalogs to be arriving soon, new promotion, Sale-a-bration teases, and changes to The Stamping Lady schedule.

Last Minute Family Gift

Are you running out of time? Did you get all your goodies and homemade treats done and presented to your friends and neighbors?

If not, here's an idea that you can make without messing up your kitchen!

Christmas gift idea

The base is a giant-size Hershey bar. The recipient will smile after reading the poem under the flap.

Homemade fudge poem

This idea was shared with me several years ago and I saved the poem* (ate the chocolate, of course). So I hope you can put it to good use as well.

Last-Minute teacher Gift Idea

Need a little something to pack up your homemade treats? Stampin' Up!s CandyCountdown Calendar Kit comes to the rescue.

You know...the one you bought with good intentions of making a darling Christmas countdown...

so grab it and get you're ready to go!

Teacher gift

The image panel is die cut--just punch out and glue on. Sentiment is from Tags Til Christmas stamp set. Love that set because it coordinates with so many punches making tags quick and easy.

The real red grosgrain ribbon is included for the handles. I added satin ribbon, die cut snowflake, and a button from the Candy Cane Big Buttons collections to embellish the top of the boxes.

Teacher Christmas goodies

I apologize for the long absence, but just haven't had enough hours in the day for about a month. And I'm trying to learn to function with Windows 7, a new computer, etc.

As the kids put it "we had an electronic revolution" at our house. :)

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
