Buttery mashed potatoes

The most important ingredient for Thanksgiving lunch...

Glad the cooking is done!!
The thought of waking up so darn early to prep this turkey to put into the oven is over with!
Guess what I did while the turkey was cookin'? I finally opened up my slice machine and messed around with it. I'll post later on the stuffs I made. It's being charged at the moment....

Cute Stamp

I just love this stamp from Dandelion Designs. The stamps made by Jean is the cutest!! It makes me want to go to the store and buy MORE. I think you cannot see it too well but the brown cardstock is crimped.

Cricut Wild Card Cartridge

I just got the cartridge yesterday and I wanted to try out a few that looked interesting. When looking at all the designs, I felt overwhelmed. The person (Cecelia Harris) that created the designs for this is VERY talented! She has a great passion for reading and writing. Anyway, if you are at all into cardmaking, I highly suggest you purchase this cartridge.

J*s Knicknacks ~make-it take-it~

I had so much fun at J's Knicknacks make-it take-it class! If you've never been to one of these, I suggest you go! The owners are VERY nice and SWEET =) If only some other stores on the island were as generous in their service.

Jean from Dandelion Designs was there helping/instructing us on this "strawberry" candy cane project. Isn't her stamp the cutest?

FOOD for thought

Pot of spaghetti with italian sausages

Fluffy biscuits with cheese

Crispy layered biscuits

This is a pot of chili

So I was thinking, I only have crafty things in my blog.....but I want to turn it into a variety of things. So here's food I made tonight for dinner. I usually try and make 4-5 dishes for the entire week so I can come home and warm up and rest...or have a drink. But tonight I am getting over a bad sinus infection that I had energy to make only 2 dishes.

I've Got Mail!

Oh I always cannot wait when I order stuffs online. But anyway, I bought these clear stamps just because I thought it was cute. Carriage, castle, and the prince charming frog.
I also bought the vinyl for my silhouette just because it was the last one in stock.

And this bag.....I've been eyeing it out!! This bag too was the last one in stock.
Cannot wait to use it for my make-and-take classes!!

This is one of the newest things from Quickutz. It's for the Silhouette. I wanted this to make stuffs for Christmas presents. These are vinyl adhesive packs that you can cut out xmas dies.
I'll make one and post it later.....

And all these were $1 each!
So I ended up getting (1) of each they had.
I think these will be great for making the holiday cards.
Cookie cutter dies, clear stamps, tags, and envelopes!!

Interesting Order

This girl I know through someone else, asked me to make her wedding thank you cards. Her colors were brown and pink. She is totally into skulls and she wasn't able to have any skulls whatsoever at her wedding. So, she insisted that her thank yous should have it. However, I even had a hard time using a skull because I just didn't see it as appropriate. So I came out with the bones crossed with a heart. And she LOVED it! So her ordered included 300 cards for her to thank her guests. I must say that this is one of my most interesting orders ever requested!

I also made my own envelopes to go with her cards as she needed them ASAP. So I had them cut and assembled by hand. I didn't give her the entire 300 at once. As I completed 100, she took them because she wanted to start writing and send them out.
