14 October 2011 – Pussy Cats and Boxes

I thought it was high time I shared a photo with you of my new babies!!  At the start of September, my husband and I adopted two kittens from Little Paws Kitten Rescue.  Shadow and Jaster are about 8 months old and getting bigger every day.  They love helping in my craft room as well as playing in the paper and boxes that my orders come in.  They have also overtaken my craft chair, so now I sit on the uncomfortable office chair and they have the one with a pillow.  If I’m not watching, I lose the office chair as well!!!

At the Stampin’ Up! convention earlier this year, Shelli Gardner, the co-founder, demonstrated a really cute box using the cardboard circle from a box of glue dots.  Well, there are 300 glue dots in a box, and it’s taken me until now to use them up!!

How cute is that!!

Now to find someone with an upcoming special birthday to give it too!!  And put something special in it!!

16 September 2010

I can’t believe how quickly three weeks of holidays can go past!!  Then again, it feels like ages ago that I went to work!!  I guess all good things must come to an end, so back to work for me on Monday.

I’ve been clearing out my craft room to have a garage sale with my mum soon and, gee I have a lot of stuff!!!  I’m trying to only buy Stampin’ Up! products as it makes it so much easier to make decisions about what to make cos it all matches. 

In between cleaning out, I’ve been making a number of different swaps.  My team, Eureka Stampers, is having a new catalogue swap for September, so I thought I would combine a challenge from Mojo Monday  (It’s a blog that has a weekly challenge on, you guessed it, Mondays!!).

Here is my entry for Mojo Monday 156.  I really enjoy the effect of colouring onto the stamp and I especially love having markers in the In-Colors!!
