Kasey was married to Jessica in Boise Idaho on Saturday, We spent all our time with kids and grandkids (insert a hooray here!) and we made it home at 2am this morning in time to get 4 hours of sleep and rush off to work!
Our time was precious with our loved ones and we thoroughly enjoyed every minute!
That is Misty the creative artist!
And here is Kasey and Jessica! More photos to come! I am exhausted tonight!
Having my niece Michelle and her family here this holiday means so much. I am missing her mother, my sister, more than I can ever express and today I received the most wonderful and thoughtful gift! Michelle said she was in a store when she saw this and she felt her Mom there with her and knew this was a gift I needed.
"My Sister, my friend
Walk with me, and along the way we'll share............ everything."
As I read the card I could not stop the tears as this has a 2 fold meaning for me. My sister is gone and I have always considered Michelle my little sister because there is only 6 years difference ( I am older lol) between us. This is one of my most precious gifts and I will cherish it always!
May your Christmas day hold many wonderful memories for you as well!
My Daugther is babysitting her nephew Garrett today and they sent me this photo- now keep in mind I have NEVER seen in person or held this little man yet- I will get to in January and I can't wait! TOOO cute that he is waving at me!!
Thanksgiving was a VERY emotionally hard day for me living so very far away from my kids and grandkids, thank goodness for cell phones and text photos!
Introducing the new and improved Stampin' Trimmer! Although paper
trimmers are a common crafting tool, this trimmer was designed
exclusively by paper crafters for paper crafters-and because it was made
by Stampin' Up!, you know it's a cut above the rest! Please note, the cutting and scoring blade refills will be available early in December.
Features of the All-New Stampin' Trimmer
An extra-wide 6-1/4" cutting base and an extended 14-1/2" ruler
The extra-wide cutting base provides a large work area and is marked
in 1/4" (4 mm) increments, allowing for small measurements.
The right-side grid helps you measure and cut very thin strips.
The extended cutting arm has a stabilizing leg to provide a sturdy and steady cutting surface for longer cuts.
When fully extended, the extended cutting arm sits flush with the
trimmer base, providing more accurate and consistent measurements across
the entire surface.
The cutting base and track include a full ruler, incorporating
measurements down to 1/16" and grid lines that mark each quarter inch.
All rulers and measurements on the base are printed under a plastic cover so your measurements won't wear off.
The base has nonskid feet, which keeps the Stampin' Trimmer securely in place on your work area.
A full 12" cutting and scoring track
The extra-long cutting track has space at the top and bottom so you
don't have to take the cutting and scoring blades out when you're not
The track gives you enough space to cut or score a full 12" (30.5 cm) without having to remove or switch out handles.
The cutting track locks in place for secure storage or transport.
The track includes an insertion point for cutting and scoring blade
handles so you can easily insert handles into the cutting track.
Specially designed handles and cutting track to ensure straight cuts
The hook on the scoring and cutting blade handles keeps the handles stable so the cuts are as straight as possible.
Handles come in two colors: dark for cutting, light for scoring.
The precision tip on the cutting blade allows you to pinpoint precisely where you're cutting.
The point on the side of each handle shows you where the blade will
cut, making it easy to see exactly where your cuts and scores will
Storage compartment under base
The storage compartment holds scoring and cutting tools such as a
Bone Folder, Simply Scored Stylus, extra scoring and cutting blades, and
even business cards.
Separate compartments within the storage compartment keep your tools
organized, and the clear cover makes it easy to see what you've stored.

THANK YOU for your service and for protecting my family! I believe in you all and stand behind you.
May God Bless you! I hope you will all listen to this song by Kristy Lee Cook
My dad would have loved this song. He was in WW2 an Army Staff Sgt one night he fell asleep in their foxhole and when he woke he was the only man left with his head still attached. Evidently the Japanese didn't see him in the hole, PTSD wasn't a diagnosis then, and I now know he had it. When I was a youngster, we had to use a 36" ruler to poke him to wake him because he would grab you and try to strangle you without realizing what he was doing.
May God bless all our soldiers, past present and future and hold them in his hands!
I love you and miss you daddy!
And to my daughter Katie who just signed up with the National Guard- I love you and pray for your safety. Hugs,
Last night in our Mia Maid & Laurel Young Women's activity we created these beautiful gold leaved pictures and then framed them! It was so EASY to do and I am going to buy more leafing and create some other projects! The trick is to LIGHTLY crumple the sheets do NOT wad them up and then wonder why they won't come apart ;o). And the other trick is to NOT try to "smooth" it out once you have it on the sticky back of the picture because you want the rumpled look to show through and you can tear it or ruin your project by trying to smooth it out and once the gold sheet hits the sticky you CANNOT move it!
The words were created on the computer and made to fit a 5x7. Lynn our YW Leader, took it to Staples to be printed on Transparencies and cut .
We sprayed the back with spray adhesive and the girls put the gold leaving (after gently crumpling it up first) on the back to cover it and then I turned mine over and pressed- this is where I wished I had taken my Stampin Up Brayer with the foam roller on it! I will be sure to do that from now on!
It was easy to trim off the outer edges and place it in the frame and TA DAH! Done!
you could use any photo, the temple, somethingChristmas etc the key is black lettering on a Transparency!
Have fun ad thanks for stopping by today= my weeks are filled with Church activities lately, leaving little time after work for any stamping but come back this weekend for a few projects!
