Let me know what you think. I still need to work on it a little more, add some of my own projects and stuff. Tell me what you like/don't like. I'd love to hear some feedback.
I managed to sell about 1/2 of my retired sets so I'll post on here the ones I have remaining. If you're interested let me know. I'd love to get rid of these and get some new ones for my upcoming workshops/classes.

Here are 2 stationary sets, I made 6 in total, all a little different. They are made using one sheet of 8.5 x 11 cs, a few envelopes and some copy paper. Stamp them all to match and it looks cute. Some I used ribbon to close and some have a band.
I also made 4 of these little index card note books. I used my bind it all to bind it, covered some chipboard with pattern paper and decorated the cover a little. There is 1/2 a pack of index cards used for the pages.
Will keep posting as I finish items.
**Also a reminder for my open house tomorrow. Come and go between 10am and 6pm.
Can't wait to see you there.

I'm also planning a scrapbooking day for the fall, anything you'd like to see at that? (it'll be on a Saturday 9am-9pm kinda thing)
Any dates that work better than others? Days of the week you prefer to leave the house? Let me know your thoughts on all this and I'm hoping to have a list, with dates, by the end of July.

Well it looks like I've been tagged. I don't know if I can come up with 7 interesting facts about me. I've always thought I'm rather boring. lol But here goes:
1. By my 20th birthday I had moved 20 times.
2. Seafood makes me gag.
3. If no one bugs me, I love laying in the sun.
4. I actually like cleaning.
5. I'm a stepmother.
6. I'm technically a grandmother, (but I don't see it that way, I'm only 33!)
7. I own a dog but I'm a cat lover at heart.
Now, I don't know 7 people who blog that I can tag. So if you're reading this and have a blog, consider yourself tagged!!

Colby was just dying to make one of the cards we did at my card class. So I let him pick which one and cut the pieces for him and distressed the edges. The rest he did himself. Too cute. He was so excited and wants to give this card to his Uncle Dwayne who is arriving tomorrow from out of town.
Thanks for looking.

All the cards we made yesterday. Well all except one (the one my sister stole from me). And of course it took much longer than I thought. I always seem to underestimate how long it will take us to make the cards. Maybe it's because of all the laughing we did. It was a great night and I thank all the ladies who came and participated.
This first card used Lovely as a Tree (thankfully it's not on the retirement list). We used Chocolate Chip craft ink with clear embossing powder for the trees and sentiment. I love the added detail of the three score lines.

Oh ya, I guess you're all wondering who won the retired set huh? Well, I was going to post a picture of the set but then I remembered the whole copyright thing and I can't do that. So the best I've got for you is that it's called Happy Harmony. It's mostly sayings with a flower (weed) stamp. Very nice anyway.
Before I announce the winner I'm going to share a few stats with you. Keep in mind, this is my business. (my line I use on Dwight when I'm explaining why I have to have a new set) In total I have 85 SU! sets sitting in my shelf. Right now, I have 20 current sets, so that means I have 65 sets that I cannot use to promote my business. And of the 20 I have left, I'm losing 7, which means I'm going to have to do some serious shopping in the new catalog!! It also means Carol won the set. (if she knows my sets that well, I think I may have to keep an eye on her from now on! *wink*) It also means I'm going to have to weed out the old and unloved to make room for the new ones. So look out for an open house later in July.
