Aloha, all! Do you remember that riddle from when you were a kid? If you're as ancient as I am, I'm sure you do. Today's younger generation might not get it because newspapers are no longer the primary source of news and current event articles as they were back in my younger years! It wasn't until I finished … [Read more...] about Black and White and Read All Over!

Aloha, all! On Monday I posted that I was making last minute Christmas Cards and hoping to get them in the mail on Tuesday! Well, a few did get into the mail Tuesday, but my list kept growing as the mail came IN, and the last of those cards aren't going into the mail until today. There are two destined for Hawaii addresses, and they may actually get there … [Read more...] about Just Two Days Before Christmas!
Aloha, all! Yes, today is officially the "last minute" for me to get my Christmas Cards made. I needed a break for a bit, so I thought I'd take the time to show you what I've accomplished so far between my class projects for last Saturday and the cards that I made today. As you can see, I got out the Stampin' Up! … [Read more...] about Last Minute Christmas Cards!
Aloha, all! The Stampin' Up! Only Challenge theme this time around is as the title of this blog post states - I'm supposed to have created a card or other project using my favorite December holiday colors! Every year I go through this same argument with myself: Is it Red/Green or Blue/Silver? If you look around at what I've been making over … [Read more...] about My Favorite Holiday Colors
Aloha, all! This past week one of the leaders of an online group to which I belong had a birthday and she challenged the group to make a Birthday Card using the Brights Colors from Stampin' Up! As it had been awhile since I'd focused on the colors in that group, I decided to accept the challenge. There was also a discussion going … [Read more...] about A Bright Birthday!
Aloha, all! Actually, these circles are not wedding "rings," but they made me think of intertwined wedding rings, which is why I made this into a wedding card. You see, this is one of those cards that started with an idea of a layout and I wasn't really sure where I was going with it. I knew what colors and Designer Series Paper I was going to … [Read more...] about Wedding “Rings”
Aloha, all! I hope you are having a wonderful day today, filled with warmth and the love of your friends and family. We are having a quiet day at home with our fur children and will be talking on the phone with our 2-legged family members as the day goes on. With our health improving every day, and with both of us involved in so many activities that we enjoy … [Read more...] about Happy Thanksgiving!
Aloha, all! And a special "Thank You" to all of you who visited my blog during the 2010 Royal Blog Tour. I have to confess that I didn't make it to all of the blogs. But I'll be checking them out from time to time as the week goes on. While most of us will have new blog posts going up right after the tour, most of those wonderful … [Read more...] about What A Wonderful Blog Tour That Was!
Aloha, all! If this card seems to have a lot of the elements of yesterday's card--well, it does! I thought I had all my Thanksgiving cards in the mail this morning before we went off on a day trip. Then I realized in horror (well, maybe not that bad, but still....) that I'd forgotten one very important family for whom I'd not made a card. We arrived home late this evening, and I … [Read more...] about One Last Thanksgiving Card!
Aloha, all! Long ago I decided that I was NOT going to do swaps for this convention. For one thing, I just didn't have that good an experience at last year's convention with my swaps. For another thing, I was getting ready for my Convention Late Night Stampers demonstration, and we have a new puppy (check out his blog!), and DH has not been feeling well. So swaps were not in the … [Read more...] about Convention Swaps!
Aloha, all! When I made the card for Marian's 90th Birthday, I wanted it to be richly colorful. So I definitely did NOT want to have the inside of the card be plain white or to add another layer of card stock. After all, with the pop up, the card was plenty thick as it was. But writing a note on a color such as Rich Razzleberry would have been a challenge (lots of them in the … [Read more...] about The Final Piece of the 90th Birthday Card
