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!

Knew You Could, Knew You Would

Happy Monday!  I hope you had a memorable Mother's Day, no matter what you did/didn't do, saw /didn't see!  I know it's tricky for some people and sad for others as well. Motherhood is wonderful to celebrate, hard to do and something you will never forget, right? I was blessed to see two of my kids and get a phone call from the other and spend some time with my own Mom.

I am a morning person by nature and one of those weirdos that actually likes Mondays. I always reset for the week and accomplish a ton, especially Monday morning. Seems like there is all kinds of time to do all kinds of things and there is no way the week has gotten away from me yet!  I've been busy painting my craft room and removing all traces of the middle school daughter that used to live in it. I'll show some pics when I'm done. This is an easy paint job but would make professionals cringe. I'm only repainting the wall space I can see/access. I have some big heavy furniture, shelving, etc that is not getting moved. It works for me and is saving me a ton of back breaking work!

I actually have a card for you today, too!  It's graduation time and how fun to celebrate those milestones. I used a stamp from the Bravo! set  and map paper from the Typeset pad. I wanted to use a generic color scheme so chose Black, Cherry Cobbler and Hello Honey. Here's the card:

I raided my retired stamp supply for the graduation hat and used Happy Graduation from Teeny Tiny Wishes to finish it off. I love this card!

The biggest excitement I have going on today is anticipating UPS delivering my first order from the new catalog!  I hope to finish up the room painting, restore some order and start playing with new colors and products later today!  I'll let you know how that goes tomorrow!

have a great day!
