Creative Bite-Heidi Swapp

Jennifer C. motivated me to do a creative bite today. I thought I'd would use Heidi Swapp foam letters because the image online doesn't do it justice. In person they are thick, bold and unique.

Noteworthy Video

You know how you buy something: ribbon, clips... and never want to part with them. Well, I'm going to save the "Create" brad-I love it. I see this sitting in my craft area for a long time.
Noteworthy is a super collection. I wish more unique albums were out there - like theirs.

Did you see all the new 7Gypsies items-fun, fun, fun!

To get a perspective, look how large the rubber bands are compared to the brads. Where could you find unique rubber bands like these, if not 7Gypsies?
What a great way to show off photos. This holds 4 x 6 pictures or mini layouts!

Making Memories Animal Cracker

We just started carrying Making Memories, so we are behind on stocking the Animal Crackers Collection. I couldn't pass on them though, because they are soooo cute. The papers are unique with texture and diecuts. Look at the Jack (stars) and Ella (flowers) paper, having the images punched out of them!
Passport is the next collection coming out, sometime in June.

Peek a Boo Albums

Tinkering Ink -gotta love em. You can be so creative with these and
yet they make it easy because they is already have given you a head start, with shape and design.
Add Tinkering paper for a blast of color and some rub-ons, photos and journaling -bingo. On the rings, tie lots of ribbon!

Shouldn't Tinkering Ink make overlays? I can imagine they would knock our socks off with those big bold designs.

Making Memories Slice video

Don't forget, if you want one email Scott and let him know. This is a cool machine. Voted top 10 "Best of Show" in Creating Keepsakes Magazine, June issue.

My Minds Eye coming.

Drummer Girl

My daughters just joined the band. I don't know how between distracting her from getting toys as she moves around, nursing, changing -what 500 diapers a day, and now band practice. Yikes!

Gila Monster, Again!

Just when I think I'll never post another Gila Monster, something like this happens. Not on a wall, not camoflaged on rocks, but in the pool! Believe it or not he/she was moving around on the bottom. Scott pulled him out and he walked away!

I took this shot the next day. Looks like he's hanging around. Too bad my dogs know this, because they are on the lookout!
