Chipboard Albums

I love doing chipboard albums. Fun, simple, and such a great little gift. I always tend to go overboard, but once I pick the theme and colors, ideas start flowing! Here are 2 I recently did for a lady in Greece. I was happy with how they turned out and hope they provide a place to store special memories! Thanks for the order Elli!

Jungle Toppers/Special Orders

I love a request for a custom order. So, what am I working on now???? How about 70 jungle cupcake toppers. :) Yep, these little babies are a little more time consuming than some of my other toppers. I hand stamp. color, and punch every last one. Good thing I love what I do. This customer ordered these last night and needs them for a birthday party this weekend. (Ahhhh, last minute buying, been there, done that :)I'll have to post a picture of the 70 when I get them done! This kiddo must be pretty popular to need 70!

Busy Busy!

This week has been spent potty training a 2 1/2 year old little boy, creating new projects and items for MY SHOP, getting things ready for a May scrapbook crop, buying my sister's birthday gifts and planning a day with her, a husband having muscle spasms from pain treatment shots (his list of medical problems is extensive, poor guy, only 27 and on heart meds, BP meds, not to mention the pain meds and relaxers. We replaced 5 discs in his neck in '07 at 25).

So, like the title says- BUSY BUSY. Good news, new cupcake toppers are being listed today. Little one has been diaper free for four days and has done beyond well. No night accidents, not one accident with me. (Thank you God, for making this transition easy on me!) Sisters gifts are done- I paid her Crop fee for a 12 hour crop, with me, and stocked her up on scrapbook supplies like paper, glue dots, photo mounts, embellishments, etc. and got her a new album that she will love.

So, what's the best birthday gift you have ever gotten? I am pondering this one myself! Off to take little guy to the zoo today!
