Birthday Party Services! you've done all the other trendy birthday parties....WHAT NOW? I know!!! You can do a scrap attack birthday party!!! The set up for the birthday party I did in my craft room was for 8 young girls and we all made a little scrap book. I took a picture of the party group and printed out 8, one of each! They used that picture on the front cover of their book, and they loved it! I provided the basic book, decorative scissors, punches, all kinds of die cuts, ribbon, buttons, designer paper, sticky stuff and card stock (plus a bit more!!) Now I can no longer offer the parties in my studio as my husband and I are moving, but my daughter will still be in the Lehigh Valley, so we can bring the party to you in NJ or in PA. Call me for a fun and inexpensive way to celebrate!

(we put the cake on this table in the last picture)

Now this idea can actually be done for anyone celebrating any kind of milestone. Recipients LOVE getting a gift that shares remembrances of you all. So consider having this get together either with your loved one or with friends to prepare a wonderful gift. Anniversaries, special number birthdays, weddings, retirements, you name it - it can be documented and shared!! I have a ton of ideas, just call!!!

An April Stamp-a-Stack Card

Here is a sample of one of the April Stamp-a-Stack cards from the April Girls' Night Out in my craft studio. We had so much always! I CASE-d from someone whose name is not attached to the file I saved, so if its you -let me know so I can give you credit. One of the many, many, many benefits of being a demonstrator is the ability to view card samples on our Stampin' Up! Demonstrator website. My sisters in stamping are very talented, and I thank them for sharing such beautiful work! Enjoy!

St. Luke's Craft Show 2010

So this is Stephanie at our booth at the St. Luke's Craft Show last fall. I sold more than anyone, however, it wasn't very busy since the show was in many diffeent classrooms, rather than a large area. So it was difficult to see everyone and get around. I think the parking may have been difficult, but I don't know for sure. We had fun getting girlfriends came out to help finsih up projects and then to set up. Stephanie and I had a fun time regardless! I think I 'll look for some other craft shows...especially now that Bob is retired...hahaha!

Rest in Peace, Little Mother...

On May 31st my mother, Regina Forsythe, nee Cowie, known to everyone as Jeannie, lost her long and arduous battel with Alzheimer's. I was with her when she passed, thank the good Lord. I miss her. She was my greatest fan, no matter what I ever did. She was creative, kind, and always smiling. Everyone loved her....

This picture was when Stephanie, now 25, was about 4 years old, and my mother, Jeannie, was just 60. Stef and I were in the musical Oklahoma.
