Gingy's House

Sorry I have been MIA lately but you all know what it is like when family is in town. busy, Busy, BUSY!!! PLUS, I am sick on top of it all, WHAT IS UP WITH THAT???? Yes folks, I am down with a cold and let me just tell you my head is pounding as I type this... BUT, I just have to share this master piece that my niece, Skylar, and my brother, Kevin & myself just threw together. I know, it's a little late but hey, it is still Christmas around here so anything goes! LOL

Without further ado here is Gingy's house with a little Skylar on the side...


A better picture of Gingy's house...


And this is what happens to Gingy's house after the photo shoot...


How funny is that? Isn't my niece the cutest? Well, actually, all my nieces & nephew are CUTE!! But hey, that's just my opinion. I think it has to do with the fact they are all related to me. LOL

Oh my goodness, so right now, my husband is drinking home-made wine coolers, Mom is drinking some kind of ale and my Bro is drinking Hefe. I think I am going to be the only sober person in the house tonight aside from Skylar, too funny. LOL

Alright, I better go check the damage to Gingy's house.  Hope you all have a GREAT Saturday night!!

Toodles Peeps! :)

No, really, You're da BOMB!!!

LOL I am cracking myself up already and it isn't even noon! Amazing, I know. :)

So while surfing the net last night, I noticed a bunch of bloggers are taking the rest of the year off and I am thinking to myself...geez, what am I going to do for the next two weeks while I am on vacation? I was really looking forward to a bunch of stampin', bloggin', blog surfng, trying out new sketches, shopping, spending time with family (all in between blog posts of course) and running all over the place entertaining everyone. But now? I guess I will just do everything but blog surfing and as far as sketches? Well, I guess I will get caught up on all the ones I missed in the previous weeks. Not that it will be a bad, I'm sure it will actually be a good time, but dang, I am going to miss all you bloggers taking time off...SERIOUSLY I AM!! Just know that you are all loved. Especially Julee who is taking a much needed break. {{{Big HUGS Girlfriend!!}}}

Anywho, I decided to play with my NEW Amuse stamps this morning. Yes Dana, I went shopping and I don't feel guilty about it, not one single bit! LOL

Check it out:

Oh, and thank you all for the nice comments about my Sis. She really is a super gal and I love her like crazy. I am hoping she comes back for a visit SOON!! Do you hear that Pancho? SOON!!!

You ARE one of my favorite Peeps!!

Yes, I am referring to my Sis who has now abandoned me and gone home. How could she?? How could she just up and leave me? Doesn't she know that she needs to STAY for Christmas and open her presents with me? Keep me up late. Make me so tired I need to sleep in my car during my lunch hour. Stamp, stamp and do even more stamping? HELLO!!! Experiencing withdrawals here! Crikey. What is a girl to do?

Well, in my case... STAMP!! I made this card tonight with her in mind...

And I am not just saying that because she is my sister! :)

Get this, today, during my lunch hour, I actually took a nap IN MY CAR!!! Yes Peeps, I was so tired this morning that I took my pillow to work with me and then headed out to my car to take a nap. Crazy I tell you, CRAZY!! But my family is sooooooooo worth it! :)

On that note, I am heading to bed early tonight. I hope you all have a Happy Hump day!!

C-ya later! :)

Another late night....

Yep, I am killing her!  This is Trixie again....good thing she is going to get a little vacation time AFTER I leave! As I enjoyed the afternoon, evening and LATE evening stamping my little heart out she was franticly trying to get all of her Christmas cards out and wrapping up packages to ship.  Good thing all of those Christmas cards that she has been posting are finding new homes...she just needs to make a little room around here!

And I will tell you why because she got THESE totally cute little stamps from Just Johanna today.  I mean come on - look at that owl - is he not the dangest little darlin' you ever seen? and the itty bitty bird?  Who knew that a little wooden block with a little drawing on it can make you say "EEEWWW" "AAAAHHHHH"! 


Hopefully the little lady will be back with y'all tomorrow as I know that she desperately misses you and creating nifty little things for you to see!

Happy Trails and don't forget what you are suppose to do with that prom dress!


I love being a night owl.....

because that means that you can get into things that others don't know about while they are sleeping!  Oh yes, a little guest blogging here by Trixie.  The ole' lady just couldn't handle the late hours with me, so I get to do a little guest spot on her blog!  Woohoo!  I am sure that after she reads this she will change all of her passwords and what not, but it will be fun while it lasts!

Can I just tell you how amazingly talented my sister is??  I know that y'all see the rockin' stuff that she posts but let me tell you about the "behind the scenes" stuff.  I came into her cozy little stamp area after we came down from the Grand Canyon and she had all these totally cute little diddy's around here that she has "whipped" up.  Some she can't show just yet and others are for people at work.  I gotta tell you - if there are people out there that aren't checking out her blog, you need to let them know what they are missing out on!! I'll tell ya, the girl has got it on!

She has really been growing as a "stamper" this year and I can certainly can tell.  Can you?  If you can, I want everyone to stand up, put your hands in the air and give a little hoot, holler and a few claps for the little lady!

Here is the little somethin' somethin' that she whipped up tonight....


How cute is that?  Notice the new little watermark that she designed???

Oh yeah, she does recipes huh???

Well...I know that the stamp set was from Art Impressions "Christmas Penguins".  The paper was all from SU! and the ribbon was from Michael's. 

How was that?  I am sooo bad with recipes! She can fill you in later (if she doesn't delete this post! LOL)

I am sure that she will have more for you until then....throw that prom dress on the floor and do a little happy dance!
