Aloha, all! It's time for another Stampin' Up! Only Challenge over at the SUOChallenges.com website, and this time I had a hard time deciding what I should use for the theme, "A Favorite Sentiment." OMG, I have so many favorites! I started thinking about long-retired Stampin' Up! stamp sets and sentiments that were unique to them and that I really, really miss. But, if you've been … [Read more...] about A Favorite Sentiment!
Aloha, all! I've had so much fun the past few weeks getting my Christmas Cards done. Stuck at home in a wheelchair and a cast-type boot on my driving foot has meant a lot more time in my Craft Room! One of the things I've tried to do is to be sure that I use ALL of the Christmas and Winter-themed stamp sets I've bought. There are still two sets left that I haven't touched. But, in the midst … [Read more...] about More Christmas Cards – With Retiring Products!
Aloha, all! As the current challenge at the SUO Challenge Blog is a celebration of its 7th Anniversary, we've chosen the theme, "A Blast From The Past," to celebrate!

Aloha, all! At the end of next week, my husband will celebrate his 75th birthday. That's a big one as far as I'm concerned. Actually, at our age, every birthday is a big one! But from now on, any that ends in a 5 or a 0 will get extra special treatment. Extra special in the case of Harry's birthday card is one that's made with the popular Pop Up … [Read more...] about An Early Birthday Card for My Husband!
Aloha, all! Well, it's actually less than 3 weeks before everything that's on the Stampin' Up! List of Retiring Products will really be retired. Now I know that some things don't actually sell out and end up on the Clearance Rack a couple of months down the road. But when it comes to things that I want, the products really do run out before the … [Read more...] about Retiring Products Have Just 2-1/2 More Weeks!
Aloha, all! As many of you know, I belong to a group called Family and Community Education (FCE). It's part of a USA national group of the same name, which is also part of a worldwide group called Associated Country Women of the World. In our small part of the world, my club focuses on educational projects such as giving books to newborns, providing materials … [Read more...] about My Projects for a Fund-Raising Fair!
Aloha, all! As soon as I got back from my travels, I had to get right into making birthday cards for friends and family members who had birthdays coming right up. Neither of the soonest birthday girls seemed willing to delay their birthdays until I could get a card made, so I definitely hustled. One may have made it a day or two late (takes longer for mail to get … [Read more...] about Birthdays Don’t Take a Vacation!
Aloha, all! Today's blog post is not just about a stamp set. It's also about a fun Sizzix Edgelits Set that goes with it. I definitely haven't heard the word, "edgelit," in a while, and I didn't even realize how this one worked until I got it in my hot little hands last week. The edgelit can be used by itself, but it's really a Blast … [Read more...] about Birthday Blast – A Star of a Stamp Set!
Aloha, all! I know that many of you pay attention when I say I'm pretty close to being right on target when it comes to giving up Stamp Sets and other products that Stampin' Up! has retired. After all, how am I going to help you decide on making a project I show off if you can't buy the products I'm showing off? But … [Read more...] about I Do Keep Some Retired Stampin’ Up! Sets!
Aloha, all! I've been concentrating so much on (1) my Valentine's Cards and (2) challenge projects, that I forgot to pay attention to upcoming birthdays! I was even late with my Sister-in-Law's birthday, and that's one I should NEVER miss as she's a Stampin' Up! downline, and she deserves a nice Stampin' Up! card. Hers was the card I … [Read more...] about Lots of Birthdays This Month!
