Did you notice this cute saying in Barnyard Babies?!! This is perfect for where I live in Upcountry Maui! I’m surrounded by cows, goats, pigs, horses, & sheep that I say “Hi” to when I go on my morning walks.
I made a Charlie Brown Tree using Totally Trees and found the ornaments & star in the Tin of Tags set.
So, Happy Christmas to everyone!! It’s coming soon. I’m trying to enjoy each moment & not stress!
I think this month’s page is my favorite! I love the way these watercolors made the pretty background- just a stamp on top…& done! I found the idea for this from Michelle Quinno at shellsq.blogspot.com. Thanks, Michelle!
Watercolored using Aquapainter: Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach, & Tip Top Taupe
Stamped on top using Early Espresso. Stamp sets are Totally Trees & Endless Thanks.
I have so much to be thankful for! The first thing that comes to mind is how thankful I am for the many dear friends I’ve made through stampin’!
These cute images are from Cookie-Cutter Halloween! Love that set! The holiday season is officially here! I’m determined to stay on top of things this year!! We’ll see what happens.
I have lots of fun classes scheduled in the next few months! You can always see what events I’m having by clicking on CLASSES & EVENTS on the top of my blog. Try to join us at some of the classes this month!
Be sure to head over to Anne & Crystal’s blogs to see their October calendars!
Seaside Shore has some nice, detailed fish images, along with seaweed & rope. This is my stamp for the August calendar page.
I’ve used a Masking Technique to stamp the bottom fish in Calypso Coral, then cover him with a post-it note that I’ve cut out in that shape. Then I was able to stamp seaweed right over it without messing up the fish. Other colors: Dapper Denim, Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi, Soft Sky.
Going in a hot air balloon is on my bucket list! Maybe over Napa Valley or Santa Fe. There’s a cute stamp set called Lift Me Up that I’ve found a lot of use for! It comes in a bundle with Up & Away Thinlits Dies!
Have you ever gone up in a balloon? Where did you go? I’m “up” for suggestions! Ha!!
Be sure & check out what Crystal & Anne have created for their May calendar pages!
My daughter, Malia, spent last Christmas with us, and helped me with my calendars. Here’s a page she created:
Those jars are just adorable! Our family loves to fish- everyone except Malia, that is. She says she loves fishing, but just hates to catch them. Feels sorry for the little things. Me. I grew up trout fishing in California with my dad. I could spend all day looking for the perfect fishing hole & be so happy! My husband loves deep sea fishing in Hawaii. He actually was lost at sea about 24 years ago when his boat capsized & was miraculously rescued the next morning!
Now hop on over to see what Crystal & Anne came up with for April.
One of my most popular items will be on sale this weekend at the Maui Big Shots! Craft Fair… my desktop calendar!
These sell for just $12…a gift you’ll enjoy all year long! The case is sort of a long, plastic DVD case and the cover opens up and acts as a stand for your desk.

Here’s a peek at another month…
Leave a comment to order. I’ll have paypal set up in a few days.
Or better yet, come see us at our Craft Fair in Kula Kai on Maui this weekend!!
