VC_Rocks Swaps

Not sure why I'm keeping a blog still - no one seems to be interested in it - but oh well - here goes ....

I signed up for a bunch of swaps on the VC-Rocks yahoo group - all SU! demo quality swaps -

Here's one I did for the Sultry Scribe-Swap - notebook -

Next is the Glorious Glitter swap -

Then I'm in the Punched to Perfection Swap - which I haven't started yet - I have so many different ideas to do :)

Then Fresh & Fun Card Swap (newer sets that will stay in the next catalog) - I chose the Boho backgrounds and One of a Kind stamp set - I'll be working on that this weekend - I just placed an order with more card stock so I can make 12 of them :)

I'm hosting the charrished Chipboards Swap - I have maybe 5 finished - I ran out of black card stock - put in the order today so will get it done this weekend too -

Finally - The Drink Stops Here - it's a coaster swap - I haven't done this one yet either - it's only 6 - but I have so many different ideas on how to go about this swap - so I keep putting it off - maybe I'll work on this one today :)

SO that's it for my swaps - will post pictures as I finish them -

Thanks for looking :)

Ok they're about 3 weeks old now - but they're here! we have 4 out of 6 sold! One of our little guys is going to live in Missippi when he's 10 weeks old!

We have 1 female - sold - and 5 boys - you can go to to see more pictures - but here are a couple of my favorites!

This one is Snoopy - my baby :)

Then there is BABY - she's the baby of the group and my daughter's favorite

Then there is .... we can't decide on a name - he's tuff guy - or tiger - or something - he just loves to get up and wrestle - he has the CUTEST growl! I wish I could get a video of him :) - he's my son's favorite :)

That's all the pictures I have on my end - my husband has more pictures up on the website -

We have kittens too! They're FREE!!!!
OUr wild cats that live on our front porch just had 4 kittens - and the other one had her kittens but she hasn't brought them out yet - so not sure how many we have all together - the 4 we have seen are now living in my husband's jeep during the stormy weather we're having today - lol
He's pretty ticked off - it's been really warm outside all week so she brought them out to eat and hang out on the front porch - but it got cold - she took all but one kitten this morning to the jeep - when she came back to eat - I brought the kitten out of the garage for her - and she brought it over to the jeep - which is how I found them - Cory told me to take them OUT of the jeep and put them back on the porch - but that didn't last long - she took them off the porch and back to the jeep - I took them out again - and now she has 3 of them again and this poor little kitten just keeps getting left behind! She'll come back when she's hungry - so we're not worried about it - but it's like 65 degrees out and really windy - it's been raining all day - so hopefully she's ok out there - Idon't want to put her back in the garage!

Anyways - that's about it for the puppies and kitties -

Stampin' Up Stuff

Ok I'm WAY behind on my blogging -sorry
the Workshops were GREAT! Brought in a total of $922 for all 3 workshops!
I hate to say I didn't make a single booking - but I got a few emails to keep in touch - so we'll see how it goes -

I've gone out to 3 neighborhoods out here by my house posting a note with technique booklets on almost 250 doors and not ONE SIGNLE Email or phone call to book - I'm getting really discouraged here - I don't know what else to do!! any demo's out there that has any advice I'd greatly appreaciate it!!

I started a demo website - you can check it out here - or - it was fun to make but to pay for it - I sure hope it helps!

I don't have anything booked so if anyone is interested :)
I have some way cute new samples for the make it/take for workshops - maybe even classes?
I have TONS of ideas for scrapbooking classes and 3d items - hundreds of cards and all sorts of different things - so I really don't know why anyone isn't interested! They're cute! I promise!!

I'm going to hold a retired list open house in July at my house - so if you're in the neighborhood - drop by! I'll have a card very simular to this card up for you to try out - using Punches! This card was CASED by Dawn's stampin' thoughts -

BUT That's in July -

Thanks for stopping by!
