My Digital Studio

I now have watercolor painting GIFT CERTIFICATES available and...
 I made them using My Digital Studio from Stampin' Up!
This program is so great and easy to use, you can really make some beautiful stuff!
On another note... if you want to get a custom pet portrait, home painting or anything else for that hard to shop for person, but don't have a photo to go from... just get a gift certificate for the size painting that you want to give and they can choose the photo and order it themselves! You can order them for any size painting or value.
You can see more details on my website:

Indoor Fairy Garden

I know this is not stamping... but I just had to share my early Mother's Day gift to myself. I made an indoor Fairy mini garden to put next to my painting/craft table! It is so cute! I put it in a bird cage house sort of thing with plastic in the bottom. In the photos I have the front lifted up, but it does close down so my cat won't dig everything up!
It's not totally finished yet, but I was too excited to share photos to wait. It will also have a little wooden door for the mushroom house, a stone path and a fence. I will post again once I have those added.

Hopefully some fairies will stop by soon!

Meeting Swaps!

 Here are the swaps from our Green Mountain Stampers Meeting for April!
A great meeting again ladies! I was happy to finally make one again!
These are only some of the cards from the meeting.

I think this was my favorite for great creativity! The lines and little squiggles are drawn on by hand with a marker after the flowers are stamped. Adds such a nice simple background!

Ashley's Swaps!

 Here are the cards that my seven year old daughter Ashley made! 
I have to say, she's pretty good! I let her use my punches and paper and then she showed them to me when she was done. I did not help at all! She did not look at any of my cards or punch art to make these, just did them out of her head! I am a proud Mama!
Keep checking back this week to see the rest of the swaps and make-and-takes from our Green Mountain Stampers Meeting! It was great to take a little break from painting and STAMP again!

Silhouettes and Scrapbooking

I have to start out by saying, that I did not make this page. However, I saw it and loved it so much, that I just had to share it! So adorable! A slightly different approach to a family tree page.
I found this image linked back through a bunch of other sites and could not find the original artist to give credit. The site seems to no longer be active. Oh well, I'm sending a big thank you out there to the creator!

Downhill for Diabetes 2013

The Third Annual
Downhill for Diabetes Charity ski and snowboard event
will be on
Sunday February 24th, 2013
at Pico Mountain Resort in Killington, Vermont.

Participants will raise money to ski or snowboard, similar to a donation walk, just Vermont style! You can donate the money yourself, have a business sponsor you, or collect donations from family, friends and co-workers.
If you don't ski or snowboard you can still register and donate on the site to win great prizes and merchandise!

The purpose of this event is to raise money to continue funding research and ultimately come up with a cure for diabetes! For those of you who don't know, my seven year old daughter, Ashley, is a Type 1 Diabetic. We need to find a cure for this disease so Ashley, and others like her, don't have to live with this every day of their lives.
One hundred percent of the proceeds from this event will be donated to diabetes research.
I am hoping that you will be able to help us with this effort!
You must be registered before the event to receive ticket discounts and prizes.

You can see more details or donate on our diabetes website:

You can also help spread the work by joining or liking our Facebook event page!
