Aloha, all! Welcome to my stop on the blog tour sponsored by the 2011 Virtual Convention group, VC Rocks! Virtual? Convention? It's easier to explain the convention part and then lead into the "virtual." Each year Stampin' Up! has a convention open to all Stampin' Up! Demonstrators. Not all of us can attend, … [Read more...] about My Stampin’ Bear Has Her Own Lei!
Aloha, all! I mentioned earlier that I was going to be working to make a magnet board for my grandchildren to use for the Build-A-Bear-Workshop (BABW) bears and their clothes. I've finally go the magnet routine down, and thought I'd share it.

In addition to the little Pillow Box favor boxes I made, I also made up some gift cards with the Diaper Fold Pouch decorated with a variety of Sizzix flowers and other Stampin' Up! Embellishments.

Aloha, all! We had a totally busy day in paradise today--starting with a visit from an electrician who fixed that smoke alarm that has been going off at 4 in the morning more than I'd care to have it go off (um, actually, one time would be more than I'd care; but I've been patient). I'm truly looking forward to a full night's sleep tonight! After a few other social engagements, I … [Read more...] about More Personalizing!
