Pink and Brown

I don't think I ever posted these... sorry the pictures aren't very clear. I was going through a pink and brown phase a couple of weeks ago!

Well, I'm officially no longer a Stampin' Up! demo... it feels pretty good!!! Maybe someday I will pick it back up again, but for now, it is the right decision.

Here's my little guy:

He's taken to trying on hats when we are shopping!! He looks like a little Sinatra or something!!!

Simple and Sweet and Some News...

Well, it was bound to happen sooner or later... I'm going back to work in a few weeks. I have a wonderful lady to watch my boy, along with a couple other cutie pie kids. We were just out there again today to visit, and he absolutely loves it there. I can't believe he is 20 months old already, nearly 21 months!!! I'm so grateful that I was able to spend that many months at home with him, when I originaly thought I'd only have about 3. He has just started saying "I love you" which sounds like "oh-vee..." and calling us "honey." :-)

I am also giving up my Stampin' Up! demo-ship... it is just too much of a struggle for me to make my minimums, and when I buy stuff myself, it ends up sitting there, unused. I want to keep stamping, I just don't want the pressure of being a demo anymore. Any of you who might be former customers of mine, if you want, drop me an email, and I'll hook you up with a new demo. Thanks for your support all of these years!! Someday I may pick it back up again, but for now this is the right decision. I'm also going to purge my stamping supplies and get them down to a manageable amount. I will list the items I have for sale here soon, so if you are looking for some goodies, check back!!! I'm hoping to keep stamping when I can, and so will blog occasionally, but probably not as often as you'd like!!

I did stamp a couple of really simple cards today, one for a friend of my dh whose wife had a little boy, and one for a friend of mine who is due soon with a little girl. I used an old Wordsworth clear set that is getting old and brittle, but still worked for these sweet cards!!!
