my 12 Tags of Christmas

Once again Tim Holtz was sharing fabulous techniques and ideas in his annual 12 tags of Christmas and I had a blast getting creative and inky with all his cool products and stuff from my stash that seems somewhat neglected. so here are my interpretations of Tim's Tags............and who knows, perhaps i'll even win the grande prize - that would be so awesome.

Happy Christmas Preparations............and please share what you think i could do with these little works of art now to display or showcase them.

Well if you've been following my blog lately you'll notice that I've been singing the praises of Unity stamps........I love this company and their Stamps....great product, great value, fabulous variety of images. I was thrilled when they offered a home based business selling their stamps, an exclusive line available only through Ippity Chicks like me so if you are interested in any of these First releases, email me @ I will have one of each set for sale to start with.

I'm excited to get started and will be offering CLASSES in my home throughout the winter.

Little Boys n Bugs!!

I am beyond excited, I head to Norway friday with my mom to see my only brother and his family and 4 yr old Gudmund I'm sure has changed since i saw him over a year ago...but he'll be full of energy for playing with his Tante Corry I hope...trucks and Cars for sure....perhaps we'll even catch bugs!!!! When i saw the adorable new UNITY stamp set Sketchy Little Boy i thought how i created a few cards, one of which will be flying across the ocean friday to my sweet nephew. And the UNITY Sept. KOM is so jammed with goodies...i added a few stamped touches to the layouts I was working on. More Unity goodness with my dt kit upon my return. God Bless!!!!

Time for Change!!!

They say change is good, as good as a rest and I think they are right. Decided not to go back to work at the school as a t.a. and I feel like I made the right decision. So I'm now working temporarily with my hubby building a road operating a big packer machine.......not stressful but good $ and I'm going to find some housecleaning jobs after i return home from Norway. Things will work out and I think I'll be a happier mom!! thats most important right?

Anyhoo, back to school for the kids......routine and lunches and all that.....back to a schedule and hopefully more time for me to create.....and what a great way to start off with my Guest DT Spot at UNITY . Just received my August KOM and it is fab......packed full of fun stamps......and I can hardly wait to get my dt package and get playing with that. Here are a couple of cards I made for the september color challenge over at
Split Coast Stampers - not just for halloween.

There are some great changes going on at Unity including a great monthly Scrapbook kit, changes to the Hip Hop thursdays so stay tuned and if you Are NOT a KOM member yet, what are you waiting for? The value is awesome and there are always great sales and incentives!!! And where do you find shipping for $5!!!
