Oh Christmas Tree

Another fridgid day in MN. I've been stamping and watching Good Morning America. I will miss Diane Sawyer but am so happy she will be on the evening news. I am also a fan of Charlie Gibson and will miss him dearly. I am a huge Chris Commo fan too and will miss him. All of these people are just the best including Robin Roberts and Sam Champion. Not much new just that I'm busy as an elf preparing for the holidays. SO much to do and so little time. I hope you had a great week. Tonight is my last class for 2009 and I can't wait to be with friends at Caribou Coffee. We got 6.4" of white stuff on Tuesday and into Wednesday. It is just freezing out and my house is so drafty. Brrrrr!! Take care now and if its cold where you are stay toasty. I did enjoy Julie and Julia and I recently watched Four Christmases. Both movies were good in my opinion. Ta Ta and Happy Friday. Tami :D

Baby its cold outside

Good evening!! We are having our first real winter storm right this very moment and its like 17 degrees at 10 pm. I went out in this mess around 4:30 today as I had to run a few errands including renting Julia and Julie. I can't wait to watch it and what's even sweeter is I received a free rental at Cub for Redbox because I purchased a box of Alieve. Sweet!! I may not be able to return it tomorrow if I'm snowed in!! Onto the card. I have been saving this very sweet card I got from my friend Sherry and its a good thing because today I needed a birthday card for my little sister. It didn't scan too well but trust me it is precious. Today I wrote out my first Christmas card that I purchased for my parents. Yes you did read that right. I know, I know but I just couldn't help myself!! They were at Michaels and only one dollar. You just can't beat that!! Today I had to take a day off from stamping and making class kits as the whole process was making me crazy and my eyes were hurting along with a bad headache. I also needed to stay the heck out of Archiver's after going to three different stores to stamp, process orders, and make up kits in just one week. I did pop into Caribou Coffee tonight to just stop for a moment and gather my thougths as I've been so swamped lately which is always a good thing. Hope you are having a good week and staying warm my friends. My Friday Holiday Card Class is on at Caribou Coffee from 6-10 pm. I can't wait to see everyone. I will try and post another card this week as time permits. I haven't been able to respond to all my emails so I'm sorry. 'Tis the season you know. Later!! Its movie time. Tami

Happy Holidays friends

Good Saturday morning to you!! I'm teaching today and wanted to share another card with you. Can you believe it?? I hate to sound conceited but I love how this baby came out!! I swear I do my best work under pressure sometimes. I realized I needed to design one more card after looking over my class kits and this is what I came up with. You likey?? I really dig this collection Mistletoe by Making Memories. The products are from Archiver's and Micheals. How sad I already want more products from the line but NO Tami use up what you have!! I love working with all the goodies that come in the kit. I think its a great value even at full price. Again it was that darn Button Lady Sherry that first told me about the Mistletoe collection. I think I spied the bird paper on one of her fabbo cards and I wanted it. The ribbon is *so so* but it worked on the card (I am a ribbon snob). I hope you have a great day. Its only 15 degrees now brrrrrrrr.....chilley willie for sure!! The high will be 28. Mr. Winter has finally arrived in MN. Its going to be a great day for me. First Micheals, then Caribou Coffee inside Lunds (Its their Holiday Open House), and then my class at noontime. At 4 pm my BFF is picking me up ane we are heading downtown to Macy's for a little shopping and to check out the Macy's Holiday exhibition on the 8th floor. Then we are going to brave the cold and attend the Holidazzle (parade). After all that excitement is over we will have dinner downtown. I can hardly wait for all the festivities so I better go get ready for my big day!! I need to purchase a few inexpensive items for Toys for Tots and drop them off at Kare 11. I love doing this every December and every little bit helps. How about you? Well stay warm and toasty friends and thanks for stopping by. I may be back tomorrow evening with an update and will post another card. Tami

Don't faint...its a double header day!!

Here's another card I'm teaching tomorrow at Lunds. The scan does not do it justice but I like it because I think Basic Grey papers totally rock!! I love love love Eskimo Kisses paper and the Button Lady Sherry has me wanting to buy matching buttons (expensive little buggers) at Archiver's (she's a naughty bad girl). Going to call it a day for now and take it easy tonight. I been working very long hours on several projects and making kits for two classses and its freezing here ---a mere 19 degrees now. I can't wait for Ugly Betty to come on the tube. Have a great weekend. I will blog again on Sunday so stay turned. Thanks for swinging by. Oh last night I sorted through my stamps (just a few trays and containers) and its time again to thin out my Amuse and Savvy collections. Its always a hard task for me but I have way too many stamps!! We won't even talk about all the other craft items. Its just sick really sick. I really want and need the newest cupcake craft stamp set from Taylor's online store. It is just the sweetest thing ever. Please Santa bring me it as I've been good this year. Have a peaceful evening and relaxing weekend. Later gators. Tami :D'

Seasons Greetings

I hope your week has been good and you have a fun weekend planned. I sure do and can hardly wait. I am teaching tomorrow at Lunds (Plymouth). It also happens to be Lunds Holiday Open House. The festivities begin at 11at the store. I will have the Community Room starting at 11:30 am so my class will begin around noonish. Looking for more signups please!! You still have time to sign up up for this wonderful holiday class (five cards with envelopes) or you may order the class to go and I will get the kits to you or mail them. Here's a card I made at Archiver's on Tuesday with *Grunge Woman Donna's* new goodies. I grunged it up and sanded it. I love how it came out and we are making this card tomorrow at Lunds. I absolutely love the beautiful background paper by the one and only Christine Adolph. There are matching rub ons and they are wonderful. Christine is an amazing artist and works for Creative Imaginations. I have always loved her beautiful products and Christine is an amazing and beautiful artist. You should check out her website. I plan to later on today!! Well that's all for now peeps. I promise to post another sneak peak class card this afternoon for tomorrow's class...think Basic Grey and their fabulous Eskimo Kisses paper. We are making Memory Box cards and more goodies.

Still not a speck of snow. The cards in both classes will be five new designs. I sure hope you can join me for a stamping good time. I had a great day on Tuesday with my grungy and slicey girl Donna. She rocks!! I got my grunge on and man it felt good!! :)' Move over Tim cause Tami is here now!! Ha ha.

It was a great day, great company, great store, great employees, great lunch, great shopping, great holiday music, and great treats!! Did you see the full moon on Tuesday evening?? Totally bright and awesome but it was quite chilly outside. I also met some new scappers and stampers on Tuesday and had lots of fun and laughs with Donna. Muchos gracias Donna!! Thanks for stopping by and I plan to post a *sneaky peak* of one of my class cards later on if you are good. Stay tuned. I'd like to wish a very Happy Birthday to my beautiful, fabulous,loving and smarty pants sister Samantha. I can't wait to see her in Beantown later on this month!! Woo hoo par-tay!!
