Aloha, all! When I went searching for today's topic card, at a certain point I found several cards that featured small squares of printed papers or small squares with stamped images - or both! I looked at them all and finally decided that I couldn't decide what to use for today's post. So this week you're going to get a two-fer. On Saturday, I'll share another design that was NOT a Christmas … [Read more...] about Throwback Thursday – Squares x 4!

Aloha, all! Two events have crossed paths in my Craft Room this first week in November, and today I get to talk about them both! FIRST - It's, once again, time for the biweekly Stampin' Up! Only Challenge. The theme for this month of Thanksgiving in the United States is, "Thankful." I truly love making greeting … [Read more...] about Thankful for Stampin’ Blends!
Aloha, all! My husband and I are so fortunate this year to have a friend ask us to come to her home for Thanksgiving. It's going to be a large gathering, we'll have lots of dishes brought by her guests, and we'll be enjoying lots of friendship as we spend the afternoon with friends old and new. So how could I go to her home without taking a card that … [Read more...] about A Card for my Thanksgiving Hostess!
Aloha, all! I knew it had been a long time since I last posted here. But when I opened my blog this afternoon, I found that it had been even longer than I thought! The last cold I had really knocked me for a loop. It's taken me a long time to get back to the point that I could really sit/stand and do some crafting for any length of time. But today I felt like I … [Read more...] about The Last of My Thanksgiving Cards!

Aloha, all! Do you ever think of having cake for dessert on Thanksgiving? Not me, either. Dessert is definitely pie: Pumpkin, Mince Meat, Pecan - any kind of pie at all. But not cake! Except that this year Stampin' Up! has decided to name its fall Designer Series Paper in their Holiday Mini Catalog "Spice … [Read more...] about Thanksgiving Spice Cake
Aloha, all! As I mentioned earlier, I'm going to be one of the Senior Designers in the Create With Connie and Mary Holiday Edition program. So I'm hard at work on the projects that I'll be doing for the program. That means that, at least for the next 4 weeks, all that will be out on the Craft Room work tables will be Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini … [Read more...] about My First Card with Holiday Mini Products!
...are in the mail! Aloha, all! I'm finally finished with my Thanksgiving Cards and they're all safely in the mail. Some of them I've posted here since this year's Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalog was published in September, whle some managed to slip through the blogging cracks. I thought I'd share a few of them here with you today … [Read more...] about All Those Thanksgiving Cards…
Aloha, all! We're getting down to the wire when it comes to getting our Thanksgiving Cards ready to mail here on Hawaii's Big Island. It takes an extra day for just about everything that gets mailed from here to get to anywhere on the U. S. mainland. So I'm scrambling to try to get as many done as possible over the next couple of … [Read more...] about Thanksgiving is Getting Nearer!
Aloha, all! I can't believe it's Wednesday again already - and time for another Divas Coffee Break Design Team challenge! This week's challenge was a sketch, and I decided to use a stamp set from the Stampin' Up! 2010 Holiday Mini Catalog, Day of Gratitude. This stamp set is a great set for Thanksgiving - but it also has a design that allows it … [Read more...] about Day of Gratitude – It’s Not Just for Thanksgiving!
Our Stamp Club meeting last week was so much fun! The club is supposed to meet from 3:30 - 5:00 pm. But two of my stampin' friends didn't end up leaving until after 6:30! The good news was that Barbara (this month's hostess) brought some delectable crustless mini quiches, so my wonderful husband, Harry, didn't starve waiting for his dinner :) Of course, the rest of us … [Read more...] about Another Thanksgiving Card
