Goodie Bag

Our Team Christmas Party was a blast this year!  We made homemade SU! gifts and did the elephant exchange. My BFF and upline, Terry Blais, gave all of her downline this awesome goodie bag! It was loaded with rhinestones, white gel pen, snail refill, sponge daubers, mini brads, and more. We are so blessed to have her as our upline. Thank you, thank you, thank you Terry.

Last of Laura's Cards

There were six card kits total that I sent to Laura. It was a challenge using only what she had to use. ( I sent her a "care" package loaded with SU! product.)

My daughter(-in-law --love her like a daughter), Laura, has turned into one of us! She's a brand-new stamper! She picked out 2 stamp sets and I came up with these ideas for her. Laura, her mom, sister, and cousin made christmas cards during their thanksgiving holiday.

Stitched Felt Center-Step Card

My club members got to make this fabulous Center-Step card last month, it was a huge hit. I've got to look up the stamper that I got the idea from so I can give her credit.

Christmas Lodge Tree card

This BEAUTIFUL Christmas Lodge card was also a HUGE hit! and it's so simple.
We used the Northern Flurry embossing folder, dazzling diamonds, and Four the Holidays stamp set.

Pines and Poinsettias Card

I made this card for my dad to give to my daughter-in-law...he's sending her a gun for Christmas.

I used the Pines and Poinsettias set and the Perfect Pennants die, and Christmas Greetings stamp set (my favorite!) with Dazzling Details.

My very first blog post!

Welcome to my Craft Barn! I'm so excited to finally have a blog. My goal is to post everyday. I'm also trying to earn the Fiji Incentive's getting closer and closer! We moved February and are getting adjusted to our cute mini-farm. I currently have my stamping area in my dining room, hopefully this will get my husband on board to get my stamp room set up in the garage - it's huge! By day I drive kids to school, and try to squeeze in my stamping all other times.
