I knew it was coming...

the most perfect birthday present!

My sweet friend Kristina got something for me a while ago... but she was too sick to attend my birthday party. Poor dear, struck down with the Norovirus and then Scarlet fever! Anyway, she was finally feeling better and stopped by yesterday. Birthday gift in tow!

TaDa! The most perfect shoe!

Aren't they pretty? Now I just need an occasion to wear them... Other than walking around the house... or smiling at them adoringly!

Of course, then there is also the lovely gift the most wonderful Ms. Nat made for me. You'll just have to wait till tomorrow to see what it is.

Have a good one.

They lied!

"They" being the weather people! Yesterday they announced that winter is over and spring was coming! Well... not here! We got another 4-5 inches (at least) of snow last night.

I am NOT happy!

Trouble #2 is also home sick today. Ughh!

Have a good one.

I had a birthday/dinnerparty with a few of my friends, family and neighbors and would you believe? I didn't take a single picture.

I suck at documenting MY life!

Have a good one.

Do you think...

that if you wish for something really hard, it might just happen?

I've been wishing for sun! All I got was inspiration for this little Canvas....

Have a good one.

Blog Hop-Just Add Sweets!

Welcome to the Just Add Sweets Blog Hop with myStamp BOX today!

If you have just happened upon my blog today, you may want to head to the start of the blog hop today, the myStamp BOX blog MyStampBox.

Here is our Just Add Sweets Blog Hop schedule just in case you missed anyone:
- Tracey Taylor
- Tina McDonald
- Virginie Delbecq
- Marci Knecht
- Allison Cope
- Cherie Nymeyer
- Gudrun Loennecken
- Liz Jacob
- Ellen Sosnoski
- Kim Sonksen
- Nathalie Kalbach

The design team's challenge was to take the theme of our blog hop and apply the colours of white, pink and orange to their creations.

For participating in the blog hop by leaving a comment on each and every participating myStamp BOX designer's blog, you have a chance to win a set of brand new stamps sets being released this month! So leave a comment on all the blog posts and then return to the mSB blog and tell us what you favourite project was along the way for a chance to win! Have fun!

Here's my little project for the Blog Hop.

I used 6x6in pieces of Cardstock and pattern pieces to make a simple box. I then cut a "ribbon" out of paper and punched the edges with my doily punch. Then I stamped the flower with pink and orange ink on white cardstock, cut the images out and attached them to the paper ribbon. But, I just can't leave things too plain, so I added a few butterflies... stamped and then sprayed with Glimmer Mist.
The box is just big enough for two or three little truffles. Grin.

Stampsets used: Colorful Companion and Kind Flower

Please hop along to the next designer Ellen Sosnoski to check out her sweet work!

Have a good one.

I am sick and tired of snow!

Yes, I am still around. And I actually have something to show. I hadn't scrapped in forever, but yesterday a new friend (and new scrapper) came over and we scrapped. To lighten my mood, which right now is super depressed because of all the snow and darkness and such, I got out some "happy paper"... namely some Basic Grey that I had bought on my last trip to the US. And the LO turned out happy and summery and light and bright.... I love it.

I have to say, that the picture is not the greatest... it is so dark outside, that I couldn't get a decent picture. It is much lighter and brighter IRL.

Anyway, I am hoping to get some scrapping done tomorrow. We've had such bad snow the last few days, that school is called off for tomorrow.

Have a good one.

Sign of Life/ein Lebenszeichen

Yes, I am still alive, though not really online a whole lot due to continuing computer issues.

Ja, ich lebe noch, auch wenn ich nicht wirklich online bin auf Grund von Computerproblemen.

But less online-time also means more creative time....

Aber weniger online-Zeit heisst auch mehr Kreativ-Zeit...

This is my latest post on the my StampBox-Blog.

In diesem Monat war ich beim my StampBox-Blog dran mit einem Show-and-tell...

For my show-and-tell I want to show you a few party invitations I made recently. Much to my distress, I am turning 40 this year. But, I am not all gloom and doom. My neighbor convinced me that the best way to get over feeling old was to throw myself a party. So... that's what we are going to do: a dinner-party for my family, neighbors and close friends.

Für mein Show-and-tell zeige ich Euch Party-Einladungen die ich vor kurzem gemacht habe. So sehr ich es auch nicht wahrhaben will... ich werde in diesem Jahr 40. Aber, so ganz in Trauer versinke ich nun doch nicht. Meine wunderbare Nachbarin Linda überzeugte mich dass der beste Weg sich nicht so alt zu fühlen wäre sich selbst eine Party zu geben. Und so soll es sein... ich gebe eine Dinner-Party für meine Familie, Nachbarn und enge Freunde.

I wanted to make simple cards because I wanted to make different cards for everyone. These are a few of the cards I came up with. I used Stampin'Up Cardstock, different scraps of Basic Grey Pattern Paper, some chipboard numbers, some ribbon, and of course my trusty MyStampBox stamps. The stamp sets I used are "Kicher, Seufz","Kleinigkeiten"
and "Roadtrip"

Ich wollte einfache Einladungskarten machen, denn ich wollte unterschiedliche Karten für jeden machen. Dies sind 3 Beispiele der Karten. Ich habe Stampin'Up Cardstock, Reste von Basic Grey Papier, einige Chipboard Zahlen, etwas Band, und natürlich die MyStampBox Stempel. Die Stempelsätze die ich benutzt habe sind "Kicher, Seufz","Kleinigkeiten"
und "Roadtrip"


Come on over

It's been quite the Road Trip


Have a good one.

The weather calls for this:

But I'd rather have these!

Aren't these the most beautiful shoes?

Have a good one.

Peekin' in... or out?

Still no new computer for me. I am going to take my laptop over to a friend's house to see if he can salvage anything. Keep your fingers crossed, please.

We are in the middle of a snow storm. No major snow accumulation, but very windy.

And just so this post is not entirely without pictures... Trouble #1 had a birthday a couple of days ago. She turned 10, if you can believe it. And she was grumpy and wouldn't cooperate when I wanted a "happy" picture of her and her birthday cake. Oye... is she already practicing the "sullen teenager" mood?

Have a good one.
