Oooga Booga

I know it's a little early for Halloween, but I'm making samples early so that I have time to adequately promote all my spooky stamps before the start of the holiday season. More Halloween samples to come in the next few weeks. This card uses my Oooga Booga set.

Paper Pot

How cute is this tissue paper holder? It comes in a variety of colors to choose from. It's kind of pricey, but oh so cute. I love that you can load toilet paper into it as well as tissue paper.

I've finally submitted some designs to Cardsink & Spoonflower. Two sites that work similar to the popular site Threadless. It's fun to search through these sites & vote on your favorite designs. The popular designs are then available for purchase. Head on over to make your vote... or perhaps you'd like to upload your own design?

Free Chore chart for kids

I created this chore / activity chart to use with my little girl. I've decided to share it with all my readers for FREE! You can download this 2 page PDF file by clicking HERE. Instructions are included in the file, however, I'm going to post them here as well. This file prints perfectly onto
a standard 8.5 inch by 11 inch paper.


1: Print the “Busy Bee’s Activities” chart onto card-stock.

2: Have the printed card-stock laminated or put a clear contact paper over the
images for extra protection. Feel free to skip this step if you wish.

3: Cut out beehive & bee’s.

4: If you wish to add any glitter or embellishments, do so now.

5: Glue some magnets to the back the beehive & one magnet to each bee.

6: Print or write some activities and/or chores onto a small piece of paper.
Here is a list of some activity ideas. Feel free to add any that would work for your child’s age.

•Read a book with mom. •Help mom make cookies. •Clean all the mirrors in the bathrooms. •go tickle dad. •Count how many times you can find the word “the” in your favorite book. •Practice sight words. •jump 10 times. •Make pudding pops. •Write a letter to Grandma. •Choose a game to play with mom. •Enjoy a yummy snack. •Complete a worksheet •Complete a (be specific) craft project. •Learn to tie your shoe. •Cut out your favorite pictures from some junk mail or old magazines. •Make up a story about your favorite animal.

7: Fold the small paper in half (so that your child can’t see what he/she is picking) and place behind each magnet.

Be sure to change out activities on a daily basis to fit your needs and to keep your child interested.

8: Set aside a time each day or week for child to complete the activities.

Here are some rules:
•The child can pick any bee that he/she wants to. The child has to complete the chore or activity before moving on to the next bee.
•I usually let my kids pick 6 bee’s a day. I usually include something fun, something educational, a chore, & a physical activity.

I hope you and your children enjoy these fun activities together.

Tough choices

I've been busy this week looking through hundreds of applications to choose the perfect design team. It's going to be so difficult. There are so many talented stampers. "Thank You" to everyone who took the time to apply. I'll try to make a decision as soon as possible... but it's going to be tough. Here's a card I made a few months ago using the "Eeek! It's a Monster" stamp set.
