Keeping It Simple


Have you ever been to the Emmys?  Baw ha haaa, me neither!!  Can you believe that Spellbinders was there last night?  Sooooo exciting!!  They were able to 'share the love' with the stars with a gorgeous, hand crafted bracelet.  We also got to make one at the retreat.  They are sooo cool!  

Although I haven't ever made it a to a red carpet event, I just have to share my teeny bit of fame with my blog friends!  Canadian Scrapbooker featured my card on their site today!  It was in their latest, fall issue.


And this is the card of mine that they shared.  It's using one of Spellbinder's newest dies; Majestic Labels Twenty-Five.  This is such a cool die because there are so many things you can do with it!  And as Jackie pointed out at Canadian Scrapbooker, Spellbinder's dies just make cardmaking SO simple!


I love this sentiment because it says more than just Thank You.  kwim?  It's from a JustRite Stampers set called For All You Do Vintage Labels Three.  The paper is Heidi Swapp and Webster's Pages and the wooden butterfly is from Prima.

There is NEVER dull moment in our house hold and sometimes I think there is way too much going to give any kind of update.  The long short of it is, despite the fact that I finally got all my teaching credentials transfered here to Canada, I still did not end up with a teaching position this fall.  Very hard to swallow because I had my hopes on a few.  Good news.....more time for crafting!  (well...maybe in a perfect world! LOL)  I think the kids being 9, 12 and 14 has kept us extremely busy!  Wouldn't trade it for the world.  

So, lately it's all been about simply for me.  Before I sign off, I must share a recipe I found on pinterest.  I am obsessed with pumpkin recipes at this time of the year.  This one?  Two ingredients.  Easy peesy!!!  And I got it from this blog.  

Two ingredient pumpkin cookies -- 1 can pumpkin and 1 box spice cake mix. Bake at 350 for 10-13 minutes. Happy Fall!

Keep it simple my friends!  Enjoy your beautiful day!

Man I miss you!!!!! MISS MISS MISS YOU!!!!

Had a dream with Kelsie in it, woke up feeling sad and lonely for my old pal. Glad you have time for scrapping but sorry you didn't get the teaching job. Am on Pinterest too, looked you up but you didn't have much on there, did I have the wrong you? hahahaha!!!

Say hi to everyone, and I do mean everyone. We both miss all five of you more than you can possibly imagine.
