February 2011 Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the February 2011 Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!! 
If you came here from Toni's Blog, you're on the right path.

I love this stamp set and I am sure you are going to see a ton of brilliant ideas!  I only wish I had had enough time to make a fraction of the things I thought of to do with this set.

You can use each stamp individually as a focal point on your page or card or try repeating them to create a unique background!  Using our inks you can create a background to go with any color scheme.  What a great stamp set for a wedding!!  Create cards, favors, scrapbook pages....

Have I convinced you that you need this set?  Contact your consultant to order yours today.

Now hop on over to Beth's Blog to see what wonderful creations she has come up with.

I got a Kindle for Christmas.....

If you know me in real life you've probably heard this a few times already.  I'm tired of boring my real life friends, who probably don't care, so I've decided to move on to my cyber friends.  (If your eyes glazed over and you thought... Oh no, she's talking about her Kindle again, you have my permission to stop reading now.)

One of the most common things I've heard when I've mentioned that I got a Kindle for Christmas is
"I thought you already had one."

Truth be told, I've been using the Kindle ap on my phone and my Ipod Touch and I thought that was totally cool, until I unwrapped the lovely Kindle that is now mine... all mine... and all Hello Kitty like too. (Joshua bought be the Kindle.  Breanna bought me the Hello Kitty skin.)

In addition to the new little gadget, hubby bought me an Amazon gift certificate.  Do I really need to tell you how I spent my vacation?  I thought I was being all wife-like by sitting with my husband reading, while he watched the History Channel (ewww...)  Normally I would escape the room as fast as I could or beg to change the channel.  Apparently hubby expects me to sit in the room and watch what he is watching in order for it to be quality time.  So....did I mention that I read a lot on my vacation? hahaha... (I'm sure there are days he wished he hadn't married such an independent woman. LOL)

One of the books I read was:
 The Faith Club: A Muslim, A Christan, A Jew -- Three Women Search For Understanding
by Ranya Idliby, Suzanne Oliver and Priscilla Warner

It was absolutely fascinating.  It was one of those books that just sticks to your soul.  I think I will be forever changed because of reading it.

The three women develop a wonderful friendship, grow in their own faith and gain a greater understanding of the other faiths as they explore what they have in common and where their faiths differ.

As a Christian, you would think that I would immediately identify with the Christian author, but the truth is, I did not.  Because of the fact that many Christians do not accept that the members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints are Christian...I found that there were pieces of each story/journey that I identified with.

I hope that you'll add it to your reading list and let me know what you think.

Know any good books I should add to mine?  They don't have to be as thought provoking as The Faith Club.  I read a couple of juicy vampire books during vacation too.

January Wall Hanging

Hi there everyone!  I finally un-earthed my stamp room and finished up the January Wall Hanging.  Woo Hoo! 

My good friend Jennifer came over to create hers and to help me fine tune the design.  We couldn't decide whether to mount it on Pacific Cardstock or Sky Cardstock.  Here's pictures of both... we ended up deciding on Sky.  It just makes it "Pop" when it's in the frame, but both look beautiful.

(Please note.. our items aren't glued down in the pictures...we were still deciding what color... so pretend that everything is perfectly placed. LOL)

(This is mounted on Sky)

(This is mounted on Pacifica)

Want to make your own?  Please email me or leave me a comment so I can reserve a kit for you.  Kit's are $5 each and will be available at the crop on Saturday.  I can also ship these if you can't make it to the crop.  Contact me for details.
