Games People Play



It's Hip Hop Hangover today and for once, I think I have one. I was not able to participate, but my entire evening was focused on Unity Stamps.

I created the above using one of their brand new slides, called "Game of Chance Bingo".

You can get one here: Game of Chance Bingo

The above link goes along with an exciting announcement...at least for me, anyway! I've teamed up with a couple artisans around here and opened a small studio!

I've had this cooperative studio concept dream for about 4 years, and it's been slowly coming together. We recently found some space and are in the process of negotiating the lease and terms, but it is slowly coming together.

In the meantime, we each have been been what I refer to as "gypsy" artists...making and selling via marketplace, fair, or by word of mouth...for a long time.

So, anyway, a different sort of dream come true...I hope anyway. It all depends on the negotiations.

Oh, and how it links to the above ETSY store is that in the meantime, since we already have lots and lots of stuff, we're using ETSY as our online marketplace. If it ends up working out, we'll keep it there...if not, we may build our own online space.

So, hey. That's why I've been a little absent!

I'm so glad your studio is coming together. I remember talking to you about this and how excited you were. Live your dreams, girl!! If only I had half your guts. . .:-) I thought of you last week when Ava had her "Wizard of Oz" dance camp recital. She would sing, "And Candace she says is the name of her star." Too funny. Hope you guys are having fun together.

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!
