Big Sky Stampin' Papercrafting

I have been a crafter most of my life, starting in about 8th grade when I tried to embroider some frogs on a quilt, that I never finished! Although the list of what "I never finished" is long, and includes cross stitch, knitting, crocheting, quilting and more, my latest obsession is paper! I joined Stampin'Up! as an independent demonstrator in October 2011 and have been going like crazy ever since! I offer classes in my home, do catered card parties at your home and sell my cards locally in Bozeman, Montana and around the lovely Gallatin Valley. I would love to meet and talk to you if you are interested in the papercrafting hobby or just need some unique handmade cards for a special occasion!

For the love of Moms

I wanted to return to the theme of Mother's Day since it is tomorrow. Part of me wants to write alot about having a mom, being a mom, etc and part of me doesn't know where to start. I think I will just say that being a mom has been the best adventure of all! I love my kids for their unique, wonderful, kind, talented, faithful personalities and passions. They love me well and I am grateful.  And, I am fortunate to still have my mom with me. While that relationship was once more complicated, it has become very simple with the onset of her Alzheimer's. She knows my name when I walk in the room and asks me the same couple questions and then the conversation fades. I am grateful to her as well for her love and care for our family that still remains, despite most everything else being lost in a fog.

I have a simple card today. It incorporates my all-time favorite color scheme... blue and white!  I have more than a couple of shelves of blue and white dishes in my house, have gravitated towards blue and white linens and even for a time had blue and white flannel pajamas!  Here's the card:

This features produce that is about to retire, so be sure to check out the list and see if there is something on there that you need to grab before it's gone!  I will especially miss the Labels "Framelits" as they have been my go to die cut for several years now.

And one more pic, to honor my Mom....

Have a marvelous weekend and Happy Mother's Day to all...
