SSS January Card Kit
If you have yet to check out Simon Says Stamp Card Kits, I'd say now is a great time to do it! This month's stamp set is one of my favorites and I've already made two cards with so much product left to make more.
I have been MIA for awhile on my blog and feel like I have some 'splaining to do...I got a full time job. I haven't worked a full time job in eighteen years. When I had my daughter (she's 18 now) I went to part time work so I could take care of her, then to full time stay at home mom when I had my second daughter. We never wanted anyone else taking care of our kids, and like so many other parents out there, we decided I would only work part time if needed while we raised our kids.
I was so fortunate to have the opportunity to be there for my children when they needed me most. I have to say that it was and always has been a conscious choice. Life is full of choices and we chose to have two wonderful children with a Mom who could stay home to raise them.
I know what it's like to be left to daycare, preschools, babysitters and family members while growing up and I never wanted that for my own children. I have great respect and honor for my own Mother and all she sacrifi…
It's that time of year again! Time to give thanks to the women we know and love as our Mother. Without going into the idiosyncrasies of it all, I'll say I honor Mother's Day with this card. "To my Mom, because of you I am me."
The items I used in making this card will soon be discontinued. They are available until May 31, 2017, while supplies last. Supplies used listed below and available to purchase in my online store at : https://www.stampinup.com/ecweb/default.aspx

As I was rearranging my craft room today , I was reminded of this video from a few years ago;
It's funny because it's true!
I had to make room for my new craft mat, rulers and have a space for the awesome birthday gift I received from my wonderful mother in law... last year. She gifted me an amazing, computerized, embroidering sewing machine! I never made room for it until I actually needed to use it, which kind of defeats the purpose of having a sewing machine. I mean, you shouldn't need to use it in order to make space for it, especially if you have the space to afford...or do I?
It's not so much that I didn't want to use the sewing machine, I adored it for what it is capable of doing and the fact that it's such a thoughtful gift, but I've forever convinced myself I'm no good at sewing. I believed I had no patience for the craft and after seeing the beautiful things my mother in law could make with her sewing machine, well, I decided I wasn…
