Well let's see, I'm Mom to Victoria and Mitchell, wife to Dick; I'm special to all three, who are special to me,and that makes me the Luckiest Person on Earth. Victoria is married to Andew Knipp. I love being a mother-in-law. Hope he loves his mother-in-law. I love the comfort of being home. I'm blessed with a huge craft room, and an endless desire to create. One of my favorite things in this life is meeting people. I have the gift of gab, and can talk to most anyone. God has truly blessed me.

Beautiful You! Stampin' Up Set

It hasn't been a bad looking day, but a cool day.  I suppose we are suppose to have a few cold days in January, almost February.  We might be kinda' spoiled here since we have had such good weather over the usual colder months.  I suspect February and March will bring us some much cooler temperatures, and a bit of snow.

Well, my husband got called back to work this week.  He had to take his physical on Thursday.  I hope he passed it.  He is going back to work at AK Steel, however, he will be in a different department.  God has been so good to us.  Our insurance just ran out in December, and I feared what we were doing to do, which I shouldn't have feared, God to the rescue.  He gets Dick called back in January.  Now we will have insurance again.  So glad of that.

I saw Ann's Happy Stamping make a calendar using Beautiful You Stampin' Up Set.  So, I bought it, and the Falling in Love Designer Series Paper as well as the Falling in Love Cardstock, and the Falling Petals embossing folder, which I didn't have to use on this project, but wanted.  I then took my many purchases and made a calendar similar to hers.  Of course, I only had short pads of paper, so mine are shorter, and I could not find a calendar to print off on the computer, the size she used, so I ordered business card size calendars and on the top of them I had Vistaprints put Quaintly Put on Etsy.  Take a look at the pictures if you haven't yet.

Last week, on Blitsy and HSN, I made major purchases of stamps.  Stamps galore, I say.  I had to have more of the Gorjuss Girl stamps.  So, next post, I'm hoping to upload a project using one of those.  I have colored several of them, just got to binge watching Goliath on Amazon, and didn't get anything accomplished besides coloring.  Goliath is pretty good by the way.  I can always watch a good Billy Bob Thorton show.  Okay, bye for now.

I'll show you how to do this one. It is only cardstock, a note pad & a business card I had printed with the calendar on it. See you soon!
