Bonnie gave the "Kids" FREE Tattoos with the Stampin' Kids Tattoo Kits:
A Side Note: Hi, Dan!! Thanks for stopping by my booth! That was sweet of you to let Bonnie give you a tattoo! I hope your Grandma liked her little gift after lunch! :) Enjoy your Senior Year!!

Heritage Days Part 2 of 4 {Desk Spinner}

This is the Desk Spinner I made. I've seen them "around" and I had all the goods, I just needed to put it together!

I couldn't get the label off the side of the spinner. When I peeled if off it left the side all sticky. I even used some Goo-Gone to take off the sticky part, but I had no luck. So I ended up adding the ribbon... Darn, I had to use ribbon! :) I used an ice cream pail lid to trace the circle for the DSP then cut out the circle. Then I used two laminate sheets to cover each side of the DSP circle just to protect it. :)
I love this new DSP Sweet Always!!

Heritage Days Part 1 of 4

I was invited to have a booth at Heritage Days in New Richmond, WI on Sunday September 28th , 2008. They had lots of activities for the family. Greg brought the Boys and his Parents met them there. In this Ubet Store they sold penny candy and 50 cent ice cream cones! :)

Greg & the Boys went on the Stage Coach Ride. Thanks to my little Sister, Amanda, I have pictures! I was busy at my booth so I missed this!

Denise bought Bonnie & I "Friendship Bracelets"!
~thanks :)

Saturday's "Bake Sale"

On Saturday Greg's Family came over to help on the house. I made Banana Bread that morning for break time, then I made lunch. My Mother-In-Law helped clean-up the kitchen. {Thanks for cleaning my stove Karen!! I LOVE when you do that!!} And in the afternoon I made cookies for break time! {No wonder I can't get my work done! LOL}
The Boys have been wanting to have a "Bake Sale" and so I asked them if they wanted to have one! They were SO excited!! They got to work and set up the sale! But really the cookies were "for free" they said! :) So we ate more Cookies at the "Bake Sale" when it was quitting time at 6 o'clock! :)
Mmmmm, M&M & Butterscotch Chip Cookies!
Evan's "The Great Waterton Bake Sale" Sign.
Here is Jabin making his signs.
Evan with the cookies!
Yea!!! The first Customer, Grandma KC!!
Here is Dad wondering what is going on!!
At this point Jabin took the camera and started taking pictures!
I'm having some chips & salsa!Grandpa LorenDad {not all that beer was his! LOL}Grandma KCJabin and his Self Portrait!A picture of Evan. {Who clearly WANTS a TURN with the CAMERA!!}Evan's TURN!! :) Uncle Paul & Dad!

Evan taking a Family Picture!

SWITCH!! It's Jabin's turn to take the Family Picture!

Want to know how I made the cookies??

I just used a yellow box of cake mix and *this* recipie. {I didn't use the sugar on the cookies or the vanilla.} I added the M&M to the top of the cookie dough, just before I put them in the oven, for 1/2 the cookies and added butterscotch chips to the other 1/2 of the cookie dough. I've made them with a lemon cake mix and used lemon frosting, And a spice cake mix with cream cheese frosting. YummmmY!! :)

Have a GREAT DAY!! I have some more house work to to....THEN I get to Stamp!! I am working on My "Late" September NewLetter! And I have a few events planned, I just need to finalize the details!! :)


Jabin & Evan
Last Thursday was white day for the boys at school.
Their Grandma KC bought them these shirts and hats in Texas last winter. I didn't send the hats to school I just made them wear them on the back steps so I could take a picture of my Handsome Boys! They insisted they needed their "Candy Buckets"! They are getting ready for Halloween! {and No they will not be CowBoys either!}
I LOVE Evan's face in the first picture!! :)

NoteBook Cover

I made these notebooks for my downline and my up-line last weekend when we went to our Up-lines Demos Galore! We had a great time! I love getting new ideas! I HAVE to write everything down or I forget! :) I even brought a ruler this time to measure samples!

I just covered a school notebook with Basic Black Card Stock and added Bella Rose DSP.
It wasn't until I got home that I put the Bella Rose DSP in the R.S.V.P Pen to match! :) I used the Crop-A-Dile to punch two holes in the notbook for the Pink Pirouette Ribbon Pen Holder. Sorry, Girls I didn't add this to yours! I'll have to pick up some more pens now, huh!! :)

I WON, I WON!! :)

Last week I went to Bittersweet Farms in Amery, WI and I FORGOT to register for the give~away! LUCKY for Me my Sister Tina went there the same day and registered my name for me. Well Saturday evening my Husband got the call that I won a table runner!!!!!

{He wanted to know what a table runner was!}

I had to call Tina to tell her the news of my winning! :) I won't type what she said to me, I'll just say it wasn't Congratulations! :) {We have this mostly love/hate relationship going on! :) }

Yesterday Tina & I got our hair cut. Then I went to get my Table Runner.


I don't think Bittersweet Farms has a blog or web site, My sister has a picture of the place at the bottom of her Junk Bonanza Post.

The Store Phone Number is 715.268.2038

Next week is their Open House!! :)

Monsters, Inc Invitations

Frankie Candy Bar Slider

I have seen lots of "Frankies" around on blogs and they are ALL CUTE! It amazes me how "Krafty" stampers are!! This is My take on "Frankie". It seems that Chocolate is my theme today. I am waiting for the Gutter Guy to show up and give us an estimate. Why not stamp while I wait?? RIGHT?? :)
I decided to make a Frankie Chocolate Candy Bar Slider.
I noticed I didn't add any neck "thingies". Oh well he is cute anyway!
OK, NOW I will go and do something else while I wait!
Hmmm...Where is the chocolate.... :)

Scallop Squares & Dove Chocolates!!!!

I wondered if the Square Scallop Punches would work with Dove Chocolates...
YES!!! They work!! {I haven't seen them "around" yet!}

How FUN for FALL!!
{and Winter, Spring & Summer...Chocolate is ALWAYS in Season!}
