Get Well...Be Well...Live Well

The card below is being sent to someone who is beginning to succumb to cancer (as well as issues resulting from a compromised immune system). It would be so nice to be able to give a little health away to someone who really needs it. Instead, I only hope this card helps her smile.



Both stamps are from Unity Stamp Company. The primary image, the tree, is from a new set, "Little Sprout". Everything else is Stampin Up!

Making this card helped me reflect on my own life and what I did well or could have done better.

There are so many people and things in my life that bring me joy and help me live well. Here are only a few:

(1) Candace. She is such a wonderful young woman. She really LIVES the life she wants to see in the world (most of the time...lol). I look at her sometimes and become thankful of the hard times we lived through when she was wee.

(2) Dave. Very few folks get to see how comedic he can be. His expressions, disposition and (sometimes juvenile) antics. When we aren't stressed out by all the daily grind, we have so much fun, mostly because he brings laughter and smiles into my otherwise serious, pensive nature. I am happy to share my life with him.

(3) Laughter. Heartfelt laughter. I don't think I can laugh enough. It brings the most joy. I have a very good friend that I no longer work with (project cancelled) and he brought fun back to work because of his deep hearty laugh. HIS laugh alone brightens a room.

(4) Friends. My best memories are of the time I've spent with my friends.

(5) Kinky, Coma, Yello, and Clyde (my fury family). They are worth every fur ball rambling along the floor.

My Rising Sign

Your Rising Sign is Taurus


You are the ultimate rock - stable and centered.
People turn to you in crisis and count on you for calm.
Stubborn and strong minded, you can't be pushed around.
You are also tenacious, and you always will stick with something difficult.
A bit fan of nature, you're attracted to the beauty of the outdoors.
And sometimes, you find it easier to relate to animals than people.

What's Your Rising Sign?

Well, okay, I don't know about stable.
And surely, my husband, at least, would argue about coming to me for "calm".

But the rest, yeah.

Inspirational Unity Blog Hop

I have three huge passions related to art: photography, jewelry making, and paper crafts.

Above combines two of those passions: jewelry making and paper crafts. The necklace featured is a gift for a friend.

I used Unity Stamp Company stamps in all the projects shown in the picture above. If you look closely, you'll even see that I used the Hawaiian Border and the swirls in the lambs fleece of Love Ewe to make the bronze charms in the jewelry above!




Besides the stamps used, other materials included Bronz Clay, antiqued bronze findings, and various beads.

Of course, what gift isn't complete without packaging?



You can find the tutorial for the bag Here.
Paper and cardstock, punches, and ribbon used are from Stampin Up! while the stamp used is from Unity's March Kit of the Month.

People who know me know how I strive to use humor everyday...and especially to make light of otherwise stressful situations. So, my quote for the day has absolutely nothing to do with my project. It's …

Unity Blog Hop

My project today is a little mini album I put together to give to my daughter, who is exploring the possibility of traveling across America from Washington State to Delaware in July. I wanted to give her something to log and journal her adventures!

I used stamps from Unity Stamp Company's June and November Kits of the Month for the cover.

Inside the cover, I put a little note. She plans to hitch hike which is extremely bothersome to me. I want her to be safe! Maybe I'll suggest flying out and renting a car and doing a rode trip with her! That would curb my fears and will also be fun!


The journal block comes from their September Kit.

Unity Stamp Company is featuring a sale on their previous Kits! This is the time to get them if you don't have ENOUGH! See their sales here: Sales at Unity



The inside pages were not made with a KOM stamp, but this stamp is cool all the same. I love this flower. It's big and has many uses!
