Valentines Day

Dave and I had a really nice Valentine's Day this year. Since it was on a Saturday, that meant that we were able to take it easy all day, without scurrying around. I worked a little in the basement and then came upstairs to make his card.

Then later, we went to have dinner at this little jazz restaurant in town, The Wedge. The food is great and the atmosphere is so nice and romantic. The two pictures below were taken after we finished dinner. The first, I took. And then this fella from another table came over and took a second (and third, fourth, and fifth!). Poor Dave, is so incredibly uncomfortable in front of a camera!

The above is the one I took. I'm wearing the necklace and earrings he gave me!

The above is the best one that the fella took. In most of the other ones, either I had my eyes closed or Dave looked frightened!

Here is the card I gave Dave. I made it 3D encased in some recycled packaging. Dave's favorite color is green, so besides making it look "fresh", I also wanted to include his favorite color. And I really like deep rich pinks. He liked it. And I meant it.

I really love him. Looking into his eyes still makes my heart patter.

ah! that was super sweet:)i love the card. you always do a great job with sponges. are the stamps stampin up? great way to use green without it being overpowering and "super green".

I started feeling sick (sore throat) yesterday. and now it's developed into something nasty. my throat is on fire. ick. i've been sick so much this year.
ben is brewing beer today and i am laying low:)
You guys look so cute together. Looks like you had fun. We did b-day parties all day and then my daughter got sick so I spent the night with her. Not very romantic but we where still together :) I really like your card too. It's super cute! TFS it with us. Looking forward to more post. Take care!

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!
