Crazy Company Countdown... POST SIXTEEN PAPERTREY INK

PaperTrey Ink. Just amazing.
This place is NOT just stamps. I am talking high quality paper, ink and ribbon that will change the way you craft!!!
They offer SO much.

I am no longer a big fan of acrylic stamps, it could be a phase I am going through. But, I still LOVE my PTI. I could not bring myself to get rid of them!!!!

Don't miss my BLOG CANDY!!!

Crazy Company Countdown... POST FIFTEEN OUR DAILY BREAD

I LOVE Our Daily Bread Designs Stamps!!!

They are just perfect if you are looking for inspiring Religious designs. I have been less than inspired lately... so I put my Copic Airbrush System to use. When you have no creative juices, it just does the creative part for you!

How about some more Blog Candy!!! Leave a comment on this or any post, telling me what company is YOUR favorite!!!
Up for tasting:
A Stamp Set or two
AND a Set of (3) Copic Markers from another blog I participate in... Copic Munkies!!
See the set here!
I will pull a random winner next Friday (the 5th of Feb).

Crazy Company Countdown... POST TWELVE BELLES 'N WHISTLES

Thank you to everyone for all of your kind words. I am still struggling, but re-gaining a bit of myself everyday.

I have not stopped working on my Daughter's Cookbook, it has preoccupied me. I have learned so much about what is in my families favorite dishes, and heard lots of other stories when I called to get recipes from relatives.
It is coming along really nicely. In keeping with the cooking theme. Today's company is Belles 'n Whistles.This is Tania Baking. She is too sweet. 'Sweeter than apple Pie' in fact. She is copic colored, and I used the same paper (graphic 55?) from my recipe books, available at Funkie Munkie Scraps. Where I will be teaching the cook book bind it all class on the 30th.

Best of Intentions.

Funny how life grabs you, just at the moment you wish it would not.
I have been trying to get back into the groove of general life, and get back to enjoying some ME time with my craft room!
However, this week My Family experienced a Loss. I am grief stricken, heart broken and have struggled all week.
'Sometimes life just be that way.'

Getting Back to the Regularly Scheduled Program...

Happy 2010 Y'all.
I will be getting back to the regularly scheduled program this week!

It has been a looong Holiday for us! My husband took a long vacation over the Holiday break and had a tonsillectomy and another ectomy south of the border! So our Holiday was not-so-much vacation as it was recovery room!
I have not been exactly lazy, but crafting has been minimal! I have been feverishly trying to gather recipes for my Daughters Cookbook. I am trying to create a family legacy!
Gathering recipes from some relatives is like pulling teeth!!!
I will get them all though, I am determined!
I have some important ones, My family Mole and Tamale Recipes... and the beloved Carrot Cake. Mostly because I already had those!!!! ;)
I am going to bind them into a recipe book. Speaking of binding... I have been playing with a few new binding things... More on that to come. . . But you may see some leather hand stitched bindings from me soon enough!!!I am planning on teaching these Bind-it-all recipes books at the Funkie Munkie, either end of January or first of February as part of my Dynamic Dollar Economical Classes!!! You get all of the recipes inside too!!! 32 spices and sauces, and 30+ recipes as well as blank formatted pages for filling in your own!!
