Mean Moms

Hi!  I don't have anything crafty to share today.  I just wanted to vent about Mean Moms.  Do you know any?  Have you seen that movie Mean Girls with Lindsey Lohan?  Mean Moms are just like those mean high school girls but apparently have not moved beyond high school and are still "mean."  I don't think I have encountered many Mean Moms since becoming a mom myself.  But recently I've met a small group of ladies and I think they are Mean Moms.  Well, at least to me they are.  It's not even by choice that I had to meet these moms but more because the circumstances mandated it.  I won't say where I met these ladies or why I need to interact with them but I know that the way they are behaving is in an effort to exclude me.  Well, fine right?  Don't want to be part of a group that doesn't want me anyway, right?  Except I have to communicate with them.  When it first started I thought it was me making a big deal out of nothing.  But little things here and there started to add up.

Anyway, I hate writing about unhappy stuff on my crafty blog where only cute things should live but I'm irritated and thought a little venting would help me put it behind me.  If only everyone was as nice and welcoming as crafters.

Thanks for reading!

Unfortunately there are always going to be mean people out there and I'm so sorry you have to deal with these nasty people. I know it's hard but try not to let them spoil your day. Just remember that your crafting friends love you :)

I'm sorry!

I ran into a group of mean moms when I tried to join my kiddo's elementary PTO and can relate. Sadly, they will never know that they are the ones who are missing out on your friendship, and the extent of your knowledge and contributions.

Such a bummer...some things never change...even when you grow up!
I do believe all things happen for a reason and that there's always something to learn from every situation (be it good or bad). Hopefully its not a long term relationship. Hugs to you and know that if they cannot accept you then they're the losers!
So sad to hear about your encounter with the Mean Moms. Why can't everyone just be nice to each other yah? It would make this world a much nicer place. Just know that you are a wonderful person. Hugs to you Eva.

Ugh, hopefully you won't have to interact with them for too long and can keep contact to a minimum.

I hate people who are stuck in high school and mean! Hope you won't have to deal with them for long. Keep your head high and know that you're the bigger person. And vent away whenever you need to. (((Hugs))).

Totally know what you're talking about!!! Some people just never grow out of the whole "clique" thing. Sometimes when I am in those situations I like to "kill them with kindness"!! lol! Don't let them get to you.

no BUTTS about it

Hello!  Today I have a series of cards to share which I think are super cute and funny too.  I love Birdie Brown's stamp sets available at MFT and the cards today uses the behind images of the cat, dog & pig found in Cool Cat, Lucky Dog and Hog Heaven. 

I had a couple of ideas for the design of this card but I felt the sentiment called for multiple images of the animal's behind.  I just couldn't let there be one image and the sentiment have plural Butts.  I know that is weird of me but things like that drive me a little crazy.  I won't get into how people misuse plural and possessive s though.  That really drives me crazy.  Anyway, so then I thought this would be a cute way to stamp multiple images over the card.  I created the sentiment on the front using an alphabet set from Lawn Fawn.

This is the sentiment on the inside which comes in the Cool Cat stamp set.

Here is the dog version.  These cards took a lot of time to color!

Papertrey November Blog Hop Challenge

Hi!  It's been a while since I participated in one of PTI's blog hop challenges.  But I had to play along this month.  Not only did I place an order on release night but I also got my goodies in about a week!  So I had some time to play around with my new stamps and dies.  Hehe.  Below is the inspiration photo.

I love the Christmas theme and the colors too so I went with that.

When I saw the newly released penguin stamp and die, I had to get them.  So cute!!  I thought this penguin would make a cute spinner card too.  Similar to the froggy one I made HERE.  I also used PTI's In the Meadow dies.  I used the die itself and my hobby blade to cut along the curved edge to create the little cut out for the penguin to slide.  I did that twice leaving a quarter inch space between them.

I layered the penguin with PTI's coasters.

I added a tiny bell to his hat.

He slides down.  The jingle all the way sentiment is from Tiny Treats Xmas.  Just traced the space with a pencil and curv…

I wheelie like you!

Hello!  I started making some Valentine's Day cards for my shop.  I love Lawn Fawn stamps and their punny sayings!  So I used a bunch of their stamps recently.  And I totally thought I would be good and not get anything from their new release but those dies!  I want the Fancy Box and the Scalloped Box Card Pop up! 

Here is one of the cards I've made recently using Lawn Fawn's Wheelie Like You set.  I had to do some selective stamping to stamp the Wheelie three times and in red.  I use a small post it and cover up the words I do not want to be inked up.  Then I remove the post its and stamp only the word I want.

Here's a close up.  I fussy cut the little guinea pig out and adhered him onto the wheel.  Wait, he is a guinea pig, right?  Could he also be a hamster?

Well, hope everyone enjoyed their weekend.  We had an incredible day of traffic yesterday!  My husband and daughter were stuck on the road for about 5 hours.  If you live on Oahu, you know what I'm talking a…
