What is your favorite verse/quote??

Hi All,
    Today, I FINALLY had a chance to play with my Teresa Collins Stampmaker and I have to be TOTALLY honest.  My first stamp FAILED....beyond was a rectangular piece of polymer.  I'm not sure what I did, but because I refuse to give up on anything I tried again (with one of the supplied negatives) and I made a pretty neat looking Fleur de Lis.  The success of this stamp confirmed that I royally messed up the first one...just not sure if it was my negative OR if I put the polymer in backward. 
   SO, the next stamp I want to make is going to be a bible verse and/or quotation.  Please leave your favorite in the comments section (along with your email) and I will pick one and send the person whose verse I pick their own personalized version of the stamp I create in honor! 

Take care all!!!!

Look what I got in the mail yesterday.....

This is my Mother's Day present from my hubby (he got a computer for his he had to get me something really good :P)!  I haven't had a chance to play with it yet, but this weekend I will have a chance to play and explore. 

Happy Crafting all!

Blog Candy Alert!

I found an AWESOME giveaway, via Celeste at Touched by a Butterfly.  Be sure to go and comment for your chance at a $100 gift card to Michaels!!!

Hello All,
    Today while surfing the web I found a cute little widget that, for now, has convinced me that I want to start using to store the files that I share.  If you scroll down the page, you will find the widget for this in the far right column.  Right now, there is only one file in there, but I'd love to know if you guys are able to get to it.  If you have a few minutes, will you try to get the file and let me know if it works and if it's user friendly??  Once I know that it works, I'll work on getting all of my current files onto the site. 

Thanks all, and happy creating!

Pay It Forward

I pulled this idea from Celeste over at "Touched by a Butterfly," and thought is was such a cool idea that I wanted to participate as well.
Pay It Forward" is the idea of blessing someone with a random act of kindness without expecting anything in return. It’s passing on a kindness, hoping that your recipients will do the same, and forming a never-ending chain of goodwill. But it isn’t only kindness, it is also a means to connect and share instead of just keeping it to ourselves.
"I promise to send an original creation to the (1st) 5 people who leave a comment here. They must, in turn, post this on there blog, and send something they make to the 1st 5 people who comment on their status."

Here's what you need to do:

1. Leave a comment on this post. I will send a handmade gift to the first 5 commenters.
2. Create a post on your blog offering the same.
3. Send a handmade item to your first 5 commenters.
4. It must be sent to your 5 people sometime in 2011.

Please do not sign up unless you are fully committed to making your 5 items!

New Multi-file!

I am so excited to have all of these new ideas for SVG files!  Beebeebabs left a comment about superheros and it kid of excited me because I secretly LOVE superheros....especially The Fantastic Four, X-Men and, ofcourse BATMAN.  I mean, doesn't every ordinary person want to be able to do something extra-ordinary??  I sure do think it would be cool...and the fact that Batman does it without any genetic mutation makes me like him even more.   So today, I decided to play around with some superhero logos.  I'm not sure if this was what Beebeebabs was thinking of when she said superheros....but it's a start. I'm sure I will venture into some actual figures when I have a bit more time.  I hope you enjoy these.  You can grabe the file HERE.

SN:  Yes, I know Captain America isn't pink...but I couldn't stand it blending into the background and I didn't want outlines :P.
