We interupt our regularly scheduled program

to bring you this message...

I don't tend to talk about my politics unless directly asked. But, this is MY blog, and I'll talk politics if I want to! As it turns out, I can talk politics AND crafting at the same time. I saw this on the Sew, Mama,Sew blog today, and it blew me away... I'm not a quilt kinda person in general, but this one may change my mind.

I donated to the cause, and if I win this quilt, I'll display it with pride! Many thanks to contemporary American quilt artist Denyse Schmidt for the opportunity!

My favorite crochet designer (and yes, I know how dorky it sounds to have a favorite crochet designer... I never thought it would happen either...) Robyn Chachula, is coming to Philly to teach classes in November. I think this is going to be my Christmas present to myself. Or from my design business to me. Educational expenses are tax deductible, right?

New Craft Critique article

My latest article is up... I hope I don't catch a lot of flak from the pumpkin purists out there ;-)

Back by popular demand...

I did my very first Stamp Camp as a demo on Saturday (I've been a demo for several years, but only ever spent my own money, I had no customers), and by the time I got home (it was only 1 pm) I was completely whooped. Tired, tired, tired & sore. And my feet hurt. But it was fun, and I enjoyed helping people with their projects. I forced my sister to come, and she seemed to like it, and my friend Emilie came, and she REALLY liked it (of course, she REALLY likes a lot of things, she's very enthusiastic, lol!)

Part of doing a stamp camp as a demo is the opportunity to dump sell retired stuff to unsuspecting delighted customers looking for a good deal. Frankly, I was pleased as punch to dump some of the sets that have been sitting around doing NOTHING. In fact, a lot of them weren't even mounted. Tsk, tsk.

ANYWAY, these are the ones I have left... I linked to the SCS gallery of each stamp set, which I'm sure violates some rule or the other, but I'm at work (shhh) and can't take my own photo right now. If the SCS police are reading this, I'm sorry, I didn't know any better, I'll fix it asap. Please don't sue me.

  • I accept paypal, either credit or bank account transfers, I don't care.
  • I ship priority because I'm lazy and don't want to trek to the post office with my kids in tow, but I will ship first class if you ask nicely.
  • I will unmount the sets if you want me to.
  • I will include blocks & cases if you want me to, whatever you want is fine with me.

If you want to purchase any sets, EMAIL me first with the following information:
Name of the set, whether or not you want Priority or First Class shipping, and whether you want the plastic SU box, blocks, no block, just the rubber, whatever.

Here's my email:

PLEASE NOTE: that is not the address I use for paypal; I will send you an invoice once I figure out your shipping cost.

Whew... that's exhausting... here's the list:
Greetings Galore $ 24
Wonderful Woodcuts $12
Polka Dots & Paisley $ 10
Friendship Blooms $10
Very Punny $10
Peace on Earth $18
Lots of Thoughts $12
A Little Bit of Happiness $12
The World Over $12
Def. Decorative Flutterbys $15
Sweet Dreams $18
Heart Art $ 8

Okay, Lisa, are you happy now?!

Nichole Heady is KILLING me. Hello?! Spending freeze?! Oy. It's bad news... for my wallet!

Here's to hoping I win the "I want it all" package, because, um, I definitely want it all.

Contrary to popular belief...

I am not dead. But I am super busy, and haven't had any crafting time in weeks. And the crafting I'm about to do is for a Craft Critique article, so you can't even see that. Speaking of Craft Critique, I scored myself a promotion to Copy Editor, which is super cool, and I'm very excited. And they tripled my pay, lol!

Okay, I've got work to do... I promise I'll post something fun soon... I'm expecting my new Stampin' Up! order today!
