Calling all My Prima Gals!

Bet you are all wondering where those little beauties are? Well, I called today and was told that the brand new primas from cha2007 are coming in on monday. so our order will ship either next week or the following week. So, they will be here soon.... they assured me they will be able to fill it all at once. I am sort of sorry that I offered brand new product (group 2 and the have it all gals) that is what is holding up the order... but you are getting brand new products as well... so, as the old adage says, good things come to those who wait.... soon, we will be in Prima Heaven. Thanks for your patience!

Time to Update... Long Overdue!

hi, I know I am long overdue for an update. Sorry, but my angel, Talia has been so sick we have had to run back and forth from the clinic to the hospital so she could have treatments with an inebulizer (I am POSITIVE I am not spelling this right... Oh well...) Anyways, we are celebrating my parents' 40th Anniversary tomorrow and I made them a frame using chipboard coasters and hinges from Rhona. I used all K&Co products... Ain't it cute?

Cricut and Cuttlebug Deals!

Okay, I am just throwing this out there... I have a supplier that I can buy Cricut cartridges from at a great price. I have to order each cartridge in pairs. I am going to compile a list of interested people. The cost will be $69.95 US each plus shipping to you (taxes are included in this price). Once I have an idea if there is enough interest, I will collect the money and then order. I can also get Cuttlebug folders. the price would be $5.00 us each taxes in. Save the hassle of paying duty. Email me if you are interested: or if you have questions.....

Primas- Where are They Now? (Inquiring Minds Want to Know!)

I have been so sick- like barfy sick *YUCK* that I had not updated my blog. I am getting emails from my "Swapping Sistas" inquiring as to the whereabouts of these little beauties. So, Ladies, here is the scoop~ The order was actually placed on February 8. This was ahead of some payments- I have now received all of the payments except one that was mailed last week....

The wholesaler takes 2 wks to fill and ship an order in the best of circumstances. The flowers from swap 2 are brand new as of CHA and so, they will not ship them until the beginning of March. I promise to get these out as soon as they come in and I get them bagged. In lieu of the separate bags per colour, there will be one bag per type and some extra flowers from a totally different line for the time and baggies I saved on. (I did email you all for permission and most of you responded. If you prefer to waive the extra flowers and have every thing bagged separately- email me- that is what I promised and will deliver should you wish )

I am HOPING you will have your flowers by the 2nd week in March. I will update you all and thanks for your patience!

**NOTE: if you are interested in joining us for the next round- once I am finished these.... email me and I will contact you with details when the time comes.....

Quick Valentine's for Kindergarten Class!

I wanted to send Valentine's for my Son's Kindergarten class- and well, with a 5 month old, I don't have a ton of time. I whipped these up this afternoon. Pink ones are for the girls and red ones are for the boys. I found very small boogly eyes and used crystal effects on the hearts. Stamp sets: Wild about you and treat yourself- Images are Stampin' Up!

I have been waiting 4ever for Michaels to get in stock on Cuttlebugs so I could use a 40% off coupon and get a half decent price. Then I stumbled upon All That Scraps
this site has great prices on the little critter *WINK*. So for $105 USD, I ordered a Cuttlebug, 6 embossing folders, one set of embossing plates and some cropper hopper fiber cards. Christine also offers free shipping to Canada with a minimum $100 order! I was thrilled with my great find.... and then I received an email to say I had earned $10 worth of cuttlebug dollars towards my next purchase and even $3 extra towards other products! Now, this is what I call a Cuttlebug Dream. Go and visit the website. Christine will take great care of you! I guarantee it- she looked after me!

This was a birthday gift for my Mom. I used K&Co papers, my cricut to cut out "cards", prima flowers to cover the latch of the tin and alot of ribbon to cover the handle. the dividers are for different types of cards such as: birthdays, love (broader term- for anniversary, valentines and wedding cards!), Christmas, thankyou, just because and new baby cards. I uploaded the instructions and template to cover the box from Splitcoast's tutorial here!

Aren't Fellow Stampers Amazing?

Well, with only one spot left in my Prima Flowers swap, I promise to start writing about other things..... I just wanted to give a huge thank you to 3 amazing ladies who helped to send people to my brand new blog! Please visit their blogs to see amazing art work and collect awsome recipes.

First of all, it was Stephanie who made me want to blog! I ordered 2 ribbon holders from her husband (check her website for more info) I LOVE THEM! Well, we hit it off and have been chatting and she was the one who encouraged me to blog! Then, I actually contacted one of my heroes AmyR to see if she would help me out (I know everyone reads this talented gals blog *WINK*). She was only too happy to oblige, thanks Amy :) Lastly, but certainly not least, Cindy came to my rescue. I ordered a watermark from her and I love it (see picture onset.) She sells them through her blog and I am one happy customer!
