Etsy is updated!

Jun 18, 2009 Author: mytime | Filed under: Uncategorized

WAHOO! I got my Etsy shop updated! I now have over 50 items! WOOT! WOOT!

MANY of you asked about me posting more cards there, so I did! After 4 hours of posting (GOOD GRIEF!) I have lots to sell!

OH and I have TONS of stamping stuff coming soon, here too! Stamps from SO MANY companies at KILLER prices. I want them OUT OF HERE!

I don’t want to post till AFTER Father’s Day! LOL! That way I focus on my hubby and finish gifts for teachers and stuff too!

OK be sure to check today’s post! I worked UBER hard on my creation.


The end of the week is near and I HAVE to finish teacher gifts!

PLUS I am updating my Etsy Shop today! As soon as this is typed! (YES! This item will be posted as well!)

I just got the last of my Strawberry Jam (Thanks to Paulette’s mom!), so I’ll be decorating the jars, and printing off MORE Pack a Picnic templates 😀 I’ve also already started on my next month’s samples 😀 So my “behind the scenes” life is crazy.

I have had a hard/emotional week after the loss of little Ethan Weiman. Alicia’s Caring Bridge update helped me through yesterday.

So I poured ALL my emotions into this little umbrella. It was great therapy.

I love you Rain or Shine


I love this shape, and think it would be so cute hanging on a door, or in a girls room! I hangs at an angle. Adding the tag and little umbrella, I think makes it totally perfect-o!

I also decorated the edges with the patterned paper. You NEED to make sure ALL sides of your projects are clean and finished!


I then added ALL those adhesive pearls! OH MY! I don’t think I’ll ever try that again! LOL! BUT it’s all about the details, and end results! A true labor of love! I think this took me 3 hours! LOL! But, I took my time, and just kept my mind busy.


Love the details and I think it was well worth it.

I adored the MDF shapes I bought a few months ago at Say It With Letters!Now Im NOT affiliated with them, I have just had a blast using them. I was introduced to them byJulie Masse, when we went to Stamp New England!


NOTE: There is a Stamp New England happening in Conneticut on July 10th & 11th—>READ MORE HERE! Sign up by June 23rd! While I have received SO MANY emails, asking if I were teaching there, sadly no I am not. But they do have some amazing people teaching, so check out their site! I had a blast at the one I attended.
