You must check out Taylor's blog and see her three adorable new stamp set releases. Oh my sweetness she really has done it this time! I love them all and I want all her sets. Oh Santa I've been good pretty please!! As most of you probably know, Taylor has her own line of stamps and other goodies available for purchase online at her website. I say holy cool cupcakes!! And I couldn't be prouder of her as she is just so talented. I actually got to meet Taylor during Scrapfest 2007 at Mall of America here in MN. She is what I call a very talented power stamper and Taylor is so sweet just like her cupcakes. I hope you will visit her blog soon. Thanks! Tami

What a day! Kits, kits and more kits. Its the story of my life as a kitmaker. I'm ready to leave tomorrow at 7:15 am for Pine City. I will for sure need a large coffee and a couple of toothpicks. Actually I'm really looking forward to our beautiful fall trip *up north* as the Minnesotans say. Change of plans. I'm going up with Wendy and I have a few more signups so COOL beans on The Pine City Scrapbooking Co. road trip. Here we come with bells on! I hope you all have a lovely fall weekend. It is going to be in the low 70's here in Minnesota. I have to make three sets of Atcs on Sunday. Yikes once again.
Happy fall you all. We are so lucky to have delicious honey crisp apples in MN. Yumo. I love them so much. I am so looking forward to another great day with my buddy Wendy Lou. Then next Sat. is my Halloween party. Peace and Happy stamping. Tami : )
Oh isn't my Missy Ballance card sweet? I used a new gem on her party hat. I hope it survives the trip to CA. My black glaze pen acted up on the buttons so they are a little large. Bad pen!! I finally used my new Fiskar border punch the one that was so hard to find. I got mine at Target long ago. I colored this card with Copics and used my Cuttlebug swirl folder on the large scalloped pink oval. The ribbon is from Archiver's and it was a steal during Scrapfest back in Sept. at Mall of America. I bought several rolls of it what a surprise! That's all for this week my friends. I will try to post another card on Sunday evening.

I ran a lot of errands today and I finally used up a gift card I had been saving for a long time. I got some lovely stamping supplies for my Fifth Annual Halloween party on Oct. 18 in Moundsview. I have seven or eight signups so far. We always have a spooktacular party. I will be selling off some stamps I no longer want and other supplies prior to the party. So come if you dare. I have to go now and make a phone call so I can't proofread this post. So sorry. Tami

I just finished teaching 5 awesome classes in a little over a week! Whew...what a whirlwind but it was lots of fun!! Thanks to all my fabulous students and friends that attended my recent classes. I met some new stampers in my classes which is always exciting. I love people and teaching is really my thing!! There are hardly any of us left in this area anyway. I say goodbye to the meanies!!
My car is fixed (BIG ouch on the bill) and my laptop is finally back however I still need a new battery real soon. I was able to hook it up Sunday evening after I unpacked from my trip. It works great so far thank the good Lord. It was down for about a month and its hard to run your business without a computer. I will be very busy this week getting ready for more classes, processing a couple orders, and making lots of ATCs. Plus there is always bills, bills and more bills. Yuck-a-do! I have lots of new designs to share with you from my recent classes. I had an awesome weekend with my best friend Wendy and all my other great friends up on Grave Lake. The drive was so pretty on the way to Brainerd on Friday but it rained all day Sunday. We finally managed to do a little antiquing in Crosby, MN. And, we scored!! I love the hunt! I get a high from it. Again, thanks so much to everyone who took my classes. I appreciate your business and friendship as always. You ladies ROCK. I did get some new things this weekend at Create-A-Card Studio and I had two great classes at Smudges on Wednesday. I can't stop Cuttle-bugging!! Thanks Smudges. I will be working on booking more classes this week. Take care now. I will pray for peace. Tami
Here is a card I sent off to a friend. I cuttlebugged some K and Company 12 x 12 Halloween paper and made it into a Halloween card. I think most of you know I love stickles, colored staples, glitter pens, and ribbon. I'm having my fifth annual Halloween party in Moundsview on Sat. Oct. 18 at 4 pm and I'm teaching a class at Smudges on Sat. morning Nov. 1 "Fabulous Foursome." I'm working on adding a few more classes now. Have a good rest of the week. Tami
