Okay, I've spent a couple hours on my blog, and I am happier with it.  All the red was getting to me.  The real issue is, I should have taken that HTML class a few years ago when I had the Opportunity too!  I am going to have to look into taking another one.  I know Steve will help me, but I need to just go Do It!   Any body like the new colors? Off to Church! Ginny
I am thinking about moving my blog.  Now that  I actually am blogging, I am having difficulties with keeping my blog the way I want it.  Hmmm What to do????
A Few more cards For OWH 15 of these butterfly cards 15 ship cards and a few more Happy Saturday!
stock photo The Genesis has arrived : The Box came yesterday,  in the morning.  The Cutter I purchased is the 12" model.  Genesis also makes a 16 model with a back light.  The retail on the 12"  is $296.00 and the 16" is $396.00 the light is another 50.00  new blades and harnesses are available for 25.00 and 35.00.   Now if you ask me, that is  a LOT of money for a paper cutter, and a manual one at that!  I would have never or at least this week, shelled that kind of money out for a 12" paper cutter.  I did however pay $31.00 including shipping. I purchased mine on eBay.  on Sunday I was just looking at youtube craft rooms, and this gal went on about her Genesis Cutter, queried friends from Operation Write Home on Face book, checked eBay, after all the rave reviews, clicked BIN and in four  days  it was on my work table! eBay is always risky, but I do buy and sell there and have have pretty good trading experiences. This is My Genesis: The unit came packed well/safe
I am fearfully and Wonderfully made, as the Psalmist said! Knowing that I am recommitting to our family's health.  We do this Steve and I , go through cycle of being on top of our game to sliding partially back down the hill, and starting over.  We are back at mid hill looking up.  I love to cook, real foods,  I also love to read about health and nutrition.  This started for my 28 years ago when my dear friend and mentor Jane gave me a book by Adell Davis, 'lets have healthy children' It changed my life.  I did have two very healthy children, that stayed healthy and continue to be to this day.  I think nutrition is so important to health and vitality, I also think the family meal is as vitally important to the wholeness and well being of family.  My kitchen pantry is basically whole foods with little processed products.  I do buy organic when I can but to be honest, I have our #3 three child, an almost 18 yr old male at home and he needs to eat, a lot. So in fairness to qua

Speedball stamp press

Image Speedball Stamp Press    Have you ever heard of one?  Have you seen one?  Chances are likely that you haven't! Way back in one of my High School art classes we used something a little simpler  for our linoleum block presses, it worked great!     Back in November I decided I needed to try and find a small press for my rubber stamping.  I have a ligament injury in my hand and short of standing on top of my stamps I was having a difficult time getting good images consistently.  I love Magenta stamps and have a nice collection of them, but they are usually mounted on very thick wood blocks, that thickness makes it hard for my to hold an put pressure on.   The press and stamping area are 8x10 When the press is not in use it only requires about 4" over vertical storage area To find this gem I just went to Mr. Oz, I mean google and typed in speedball stamp press and there were a few options that came up, including the website "BonniesB
It has been a BUSY month since I have last posted, with so many planned postings that never got posted, sigh.  Well it is a new day so here's the new post !  I had a card party on Friday, Six friends came over for soup salad and card making for Operation Write Home! We were able to make 90 cards!  I have more kits to finish before I mail them to my shipper. Earlier in the, actually for valentines day, my Sweetheart Steve Purchased and electronic die cutting machine for me, and eCraft by Craftwell.  He got tired of watching me crank out stuff from my grandcalibur machine and ducking as the machine sometimes shot stuff out and sent it sailing!  I am using the GC for embossing now and the eCraft for cutting. This machine is very interesting,   I have cut about 500 labels for card making and have managed some interesting die cuts , But alas this is a new product and I am working with one of the best customer support groups ever and hope to have issues resolved soon.  It cuts like a plo
