Sister Stamps Miyako!

Hi!  So I am telling myself not to be too lazy this summer because before you know it, it'll be Christmas!  These days are going by so fast.  I want to try to do something creative everyday.  I hope I can keep up with that goal.  The other day I finished up 9 more little Year of the Sheep calendars using Sister Stamps Sheep stamp.  I think I shared one before so I didn't photograph the set I just made.  Yesterday and today I stamped up Sister Stamps Miyako and just had fun coloring her up.  Now that I have less DT commitments I have more time to just create whatever I feel like!  I kind of missed that. 

So here are the 4 I colored up.  I tried to use colors that I don't use too often for kimonos.  I think mostly I pick pink!  Miyako is such a cute stamp!  And I have a plan for her to go on some calendars along with a cute saying I found on the internet.  Yup, she's not just for Valentine's Day!

I also started coloring up Yoichi because my middle guy is taking Taiko for the summer and I want to make a couple of thank you cards for his teachers. 

I hope you have a great 4th of July!  We're gonna be different and bake a turkey tomorrow instead of grilling.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Wonderful colorings Eva. Each one is vibrant and pretty.Great idea to start thinking about Christmas projects. I'm such a slacker! Lol... Have great 4th weekend! ^.^
Great job Eva~
I'm trying to be more pro-active this year... 2014 was a bit hectic and I don't want to fall in that same stress out mold. So I'm crafting as much as I can and need to refill my stash of cards... I just sold practically all my cards and need to replenish...hehe! Happy 4th~

Cute variations! Hope you had a great holiday and turkey! It has been too hot to grill! I did BBQ meat last week and standing over the hot grill when it's already hot outside is not fun!

Knuffle Bunny

Hi!  The Greeting Farm had their Customer Challenge & Chit Chat Night "A Night at the Bookstore" and introduced a few challenges.  I have to say chatting was too fast for me and I couldn't really keep up.  It was still early here, and I had to pick up the kids from school and activities and make dinner and eat and so I guess the timing didn't really work out with our schedule. You can check out the challenge details on the SCS forum HERE.  I made this card for Favorite Child's Book category.  It is based on the Mo Willems book Knuffle Bunny.  It's one of my kids' favorites and it's such a cute story.  We actually love reading Mo Willems' books especially his Elephant and Piggie series.  Those books are hilarious!  This challenge also made me realize that I haven't read many books recently except kids' books.  I used to love reading but just haven't given it much time lately.  Anyway, here is my card.

If you've read the story, yo…

lots and lots of tags!

Hi!  I've been making a lot of tags lately trying to get ready for Christmas and I am finally done.

These were made with Lawn Fawn stamps and dies.  I love this set.  It is so cute and funny!

Here is the back of the tags.  I think these would be so fun to put on gifts for children.  They would think the tags are so funny!

Here are the polar bear tags.  I love this polar bear.  His expression is so cute!

This is the back of the polar bears.

I also made more of the tags I had made last year.  So these are all listed in my shop now.  I tried to make a lot at one time because I'm not sure if I'll be making more of these designs this year.  I want to make some newer ones with some of my dies that I have not used yet!  Trying so hard to not buy more than I can use.  Although sometimes that is so difficult!  I was really good in September and did not buy any new Mama Elephant or the cute Bitty Bears from Birdie Brown.  I had such restraint but who knows how long that will last t…

August 2012

Hi!  We had a short black out this morning and I didn't know what to do without my computer and internet, and I couldn't go blog surfing.  I was sad but I did cut everything out for my kids' Halloween goody bags.  Good thing my Big Shot isn't electric. 

Anyway, I made another page to my 2012 calendar/scrapbook using MFT's sketch #39 and Pure Innocence Year of Flowers series Poppy.

Here's my page.  Somehow I'm not loving this one too much.  I love the image but somehow the colors remind me of fall too much and not too summery.  And I think the proportions are a bit off.  But I decided to just stick with it.  It's still cute.

Here's a picture of both pages.

I'm gonna have to wait til I order the next couple months to continue.  But I'm happy I've made it this far!

The kiddies are home for fall break.  It's nice but messy and noisy.  It may be a long week.

Thanks for reading!
