I scrap lifted this from the blog hop for My Creative Time. The face is from Peachy Keen stamps, I used a pack of microwave popcorn, gloves, ribbon. I measured the paper to wrap around the microwave pack, then stamped and colored the image with Copic Markers and chalk. Wraped the paper around the pack used my ATG, I then put the one glove on the top and tucked the other one in the back, tied a bow and I was done. So simple and cute. I attached these to cookie boxes (for a cookie exchange). You can use for so many differant things.
I will have more to post by Sunday, I have my Cristmas Cards done and I have another project to complete.

All of my wishes are coming true.

Happy December 1st everyone. I am hapy to say my dad should be coming home this weekend. He has one more round of meds to take and he should be done. He is doing very well. We will have to make some adjustments in what he can and cannot eat. It will be trial and error until we know what will work. Thank you for all the prayers.
Now for my biggest wish, it was very hard for me when my son left for college he is 4 hours away, as a mom you have to let them make their choices,and this was very hard for me to let him go. Well he has decided to move back home and go to school close to home. He has changed his major from Graphic Design to Nursing and may minor in reglious edcuation. He has always been very involved with our church and would like to continue to help with the youth. So I am thrilled to say he will be home for my big B-day. (50 yikes).
I am working on my Christmas Cards and hope to have them posted soon.I am a little behind, I have been going to the hospital everyday, and by the time I get home I am ready to relax and go to bed.
I am also making some notebooks for a fund raiser at work, we have two assoicates in need for this Holiday season, One girl is making candy to sell and I have donated some items from my craft show that I was not able to do since my dad was in the hospital. Everyone liked the note books and I have a few more people that would like them.
Remember to count your blessing and be thankful for what you have.

Dad is doing Better

My dad is doing better. The doctor finally let him eat liquids only. I am hoping he will be coming home soon. It has been hard running back and forth. Thank you for the prayers.

Please keep the prayers coming

Dad is still in the hospital. I feel like we take 2 steps forward and 4 steps back. One day he does good and the next not so much. He is out of ICU. He is not able to keep food down, and they are not sure why. Please keep him in your prayers, He is sad and wants to come home. I have been going to work early and getting off early and spending 5-6 hours at the hospital. I hate to leave him there alone.

Prayers Please

Hello Everyone
It has been a rough week and half, My dad has been in the ICU since October 13. He has been very sick. He was on life support until this past Friday and is still having a hard time. The doctor spoke to us yesterday and told us that his esophagus is not working. The food is not going to his stomach and he will need to be on a feeding tube. They are not sure if he will every be able to eat again. My husband and I spoke to him about what the doctor wants to do. He seems OK with this but I know it will be very hard. He is not out of the woods yet. Once we get him home there will be a lot of changes we will need to make. Please keep him in your prayers.

Another Paper Bag Card

I originally saw this card on Pretty Pressings blog. It is so simple to make. Fold you paper bag in half, with the opening to the right, decorate as you would like. With the open end I cut a piece of card stock and made a spot for a gift card. Did a rivet for the for the hole and tied ribbon to pull the card out. The picture was colored with Copic Markers. I will have another one to post this week. I am making a 50th wedding anniversary card. If you would like the measurements for these cards let me know. I have them saved on my Gypsy.

I will post when I have one of the 20 complete. I will also have a 50 Th wedding anniversary card, another birthday card. I will have something new to post this weekend.

This is a card that I made using a paper lunch bag. The blog that I got the idea from is "Pretty Pressings", The opening of the bag is to the right of the card and you can add what you would like. I am going to add a recipie card. The stamps are from Lily of the Valley.

This is a birthday card was for someone who enjoyed camping. This picture was of the card before it was complete. I am happy I took this one. I forgot to take a picture after it was complete. the stamps used were from " Stamps By Judith".

Name Change

Hello Everyone, Sorry about the confusion about the name change. I have decide it was time to try something new. I have seen a lot of blogs out there with "Beary" in them. I am also looking to have business cards made and felt I needed to have something a little different. I hope by changing my name it does not cause confusion. I have cards to post and will be posted today. I have been working on a lot of ideas and I am thinking about doing craft shows this fall.

Sorry No Cards to post.

Hello Everyone sorry I have not posted any cards. I have really not made any cards since the last card posted. May was a busy month, and June had started out that way. We went on vacation the same night that my son graduated high school. We arrived home last Saturday. Then this Saturday is my daughter's and her fiancee engagement party. I have some engagement invites I will post after this weekend.
Please keep checking in. Once my son is off to college I will have all the free time in the world. I will be making cards for the upcoming holidays and after Christmas I will be working on wedding and shower invites.

This is the card I made for my friends family, I did not want to do a normal sympthany card. She celebrated life.
Inside the card reads: The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart. BY: Helen Keller.

Life is a gift

May as been a very crazy month. My son is getting ready to graduate from high school. He is my last one to graduate. In the fall he will be attending the University of Cincinnati.
This month I lost a very dear friend of mine. She is a very special person to all who knew her. No matter what good or bad she always found the good in everything. She had said that she was so blessed to have so many wonderful people in her life, but the truth is we are so blessed to have her in our lives. I have many great memories and will cherrish them all. She has taught me to enjoy life and live every moment.

This is one of the cards I have been working on, A co worker needed a card for her SIL's b-day.
It is Saturday and I am home from another one of Dom's Lacrosse games. He has been a busy boy these past few months. He graduates in June and I cannot believe he will be leaving me this fall for college. He is my last one to graduate, I will have all kinds of free time. I am panning on taking some Copic marker coloring classes, and maybe a few others.

Good Morning

Hello Everyone I have been working on cards and my son's scrap book. I have been very slow in geting his book done. A word to all new mom's when you have a thrid chid make sure you get pictures with just that child. I was not a scrapbooker or card maker 18 years ago and I was not very good with the camera. So I have many pictures with Dom and his sisters, and alot of things in the back ground. This was a lesson learned. The next thing I will have to learn is how to get picures off face book.
I am hoping to have more pictures posted.
Have a great day.

Cannot wait until I am done with my son's scrap book. I have enjoyed making his book and looking back at all the pictures, I cannot believe he has gone from a little blond hair boy to a man. It is harder doing his book than it was the girls, I knew the girls were staying home when they went to college, He is going 4 hours away. Once I am done I will be making cards all the time. I have ordered some really cute stamps From Lili of the Valley. I cannot wait to use my new stamps. I will be making my valentine cards, this weekend and will post those.

Sunday, January 30, 2011
