Stamps, Drinks and Gabbing

So, can you GUESS who I met while I was visiting with my daughter in Washington?

Let's see....well...she:

- Just sent her son off to college, but isn't yet an empty nester
- Creates stamping masterpiece cards and layouts
- Has a great (sick? morbid? sinister?) sense of humor
- Deals with all sorts of creatures and smells
- Carries a gun
- Has more energy than a chihuahua
- Is on my right in the picture below



Yes, it's KelliJo. She works in the area near my daughter. So, before I went, we tentatively arranged to meet.

We hooked up near a Michael's, did a little shopping, then ventured over to Applebee's for a quick bite...and most importantly...a drink.

She gave me the cutest card (that I don't yet have a picture of darn it!...but will add when I get a second)

I think I talked her ear off(complained? vented? gabbed? yacked on and on), but it was fun. I only wished I had more time and had my stamp room with me so that we could have stamped a little.

Oh, well....next time.

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 …
