Merry Little Christmas close

We have so many cute kits right now that making stamping so quick and easy, it is awesome for the first time stamper or if you don't have a lot of time on your hands.  This one is from the Holiday catalog and it comes with everything to make 8 cards with envelopes with liners and everything!  You can actually order the bundle which also gives you the stamp set too. #132158 is just the card kit and #133286 (w) #133287 (c) is the bundle that includes the stamp set.

Look how cute the envelope is with the liner in it.

So the hen house (as I am calling it now instead of coop) is coming along.

Here it is with the door on. The left side will go up against the run and there will be a doggy chicken door so the girls can go in to sleep or lay eggs and then run around in the run the rest of the time. Need to ask Jeff how he will secure the run to the hen house so nothing pushes the fence away and gets to the girls while they sleep. I would never forgive myself if anything got them.

Here's another angle view.  I think I will paint it red and white on the outside. What do you think?

Isn't this adorable? This is where the girls will lay their eggs. I am not sure if it will sit up off the floor a bit more or not when Jeff is done (I went out and took pictures when Jeff was in watching football). I am thinking I want to paint the inside a pool party color, any opinions on that? I know I am in charge of painting Jeff said.

To make myself accountable, I am starting the Fast Metabolism Diet, I got my steel cut oats soaking in the fridge. Wish me luck and if you are doing it too, let me know what you think.

Have an awesome Monday and thanks for stopping in.

So can you believe that I have never seen Dances with Wolves? I have seen an odd 5 minutes here and there, so when Jax was here I picked it up on Blue Ray for about 7 bucks, and it is the 20 year Anniversary one...and that makes me wonder what rock was I under that the movie is 20 years old and I never watched it.  Sure needed kleenex.

I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Have a blessed Sunday and thanks for stopping in.

Well it is not, although Jax sent me a picture of snow clouds today. Ugh. Don't really miss that.

10/10/25 means 10 cards, 10 envelopes for $25.00.  I have a list of definitions for words I use regularily on my blog on the left colomn, under "Di"ctionary.

On Jacqui's last day we met my bestie Rhonda at Benihana's for lunch. Jax had never eaten there before and when our Mum came to visit we went, so I thought it would be fun that Jax tried it too. Plus Rhonda and Jacqui wanted to see each other one more time.

Our chef was Kyle and he did a great job.

The restaurant was pretty busy for lunch, but it was nice they were not so busy that we had to share our table. The food was yummy as usual, but now that Jax is gone starting Monday I am going on a diet. I am going to try the Fast Metabolism Diet. With Leadership around the corner (I think I only have one pair of pants that fit), and the Caribbean cruise next year (let's not mention a bathing suit), I need to lose some poundage.

Jacqui had to leave early in the morning, so we decided to stay up all night till she left, we watched some TV and then we made our Everyday Occasion Kits.  What fun,  I wish she lived closer, cause her trip went so fast. I miss her and love her so much. It was after 4am before I went to bed so I was a bit of a zombie today.

The Everyday Occasions kit is cool, it comes with a stamp set and inks and everything you need (except adhesive) to make 20 cards. You can get your own kit in my online store and the item code is #134797, if you are local I am having a class in November.

Here are just a couple of the cards it makes.

This might be one of my favorites. Plus I love these buttons.

028 copy
You gotta love polka dots.

Happy Birthday stamp with the cute!!!

 I can't wait to do more with the stamp set, I love that when the cards are all given away I still have the set to use.

Well I better get off here, I have stamp club this weekend. Got some stuff to get done.

Have an awesome Friday and thanks for stopping in.
