I'm looking into the possibility of offering this service to my customers but would first like to know if my customers would use it rather than cash or check.
It would work like this: you place an order with me, I calculate your total, then send you a PayPal invoice via email. You get the email, click a link, and enter your payment info. It goes into my account, and I can then place your order. Theoretically, it shouldn't take any longer to place your order, but I haven't gone that far into my research to find out if there are any waiting periods.
So... customers... please leave me a comment and let me know your thoughts - you can email or call me too!

I love Happy Feet! I love penguins! I love the music in this movie!
Thought I would share a few songs that will get you moving in your chair. If you haven't seen the movie - what are you waiting for? It is good family fun! I think we'll add it to our list of movies to watch this weekend, although we've seen it so many times I may be the only one in the livingroom watching it... good times!

I removed the top from the ornament. Sprayed the adhesive into the ornament and shook it around to coat the inside of the ornament. I then added Turquoise Pearl Ex to the ball and shook it around. Then I added Interference Red Pearl Ex and shook again to fill in the spots where the blue didn't go. I let it set for about half an hour, to let the fumes disipate. Replaced the top of the ornament, and added the ribbon to hang it.
I have a few small ornaments from the Dollar Store that I think I will try later.

I have seen some cute stamped onsies on many blogs, and had to try it myself. I had this onsie left over from a party we had several years ago - yay for saving stuff!
Stazon ink in black and red
I started by placing a piece of cardboard into the neck of the onsie - to avoid the ink from seeping through to the back side. I then inked the truck from Stampin' Up's! Loads of Love set with the black stazon. After letting it set for about 15 minutes, I used a q-tip to draw up red stazon and dotted the red onto the onsie. I then used the black stazon for the tires, and brushed the black stazon across the center caps to make a gray color. I then used my heat gun to set the image and color into the onsie.
I flipped the onsie over and stamped "Loads of Love" onto the butt of the onsie. My hubby thought that was "cute". I again used the heat gun to set the ink.
My next adventure will be to wash the onsie, and see how the ink holds. Stay tuned!

1) Relax and concentrate of the 4 small dots in the middle of the picture for about 30-40 seconds.
2) Then, take a look at a wall near you (any smooth, single colored surface)
3) You will see a circleof light developing
4) Start blinking your eyes a couple of times, and you will see a figure emerging...
5) What do you see? Moreover, who do you see?

I thought the picture looked better in black and white, so I decided not to color it - yet. I'm sure it will start to bother me, especially since there is nothing plain about this Mason family.
I really liked this set when I first saw it in the catalog. I had to have it after I saw the cute cards and gifts people on Splitcoaststampers.com were creating with it! When it came to me in my last order, I was a little scared to try it. I was a bit weary of making someone's head way above their shoulders! Talk about having your head in the clouds! I'm glad to report, that this set is rather simple to use. I mounted their heads at the bottom of the block, and the bodies and feet at the top of the block. This way, I can see exactly where to line them up. After a few tries to get the alignment just right, I was on my way to loving this set!
Know what else I love about this set? All proceeds during the month of November are being donated to help SU! family members. See my earlier blog post about Dave Abbott.
Don't forget about the SU! Paper Party. You can get a free pack of Designer paper when you buy three!

Here are a few more samples of the ornaments you can create with your child (of any age) at my December 2nd, Mom & Me class. Registration is due by November 26th! Contact me today if you are interested!!
I was very happy to learn, by trial and error of course, that we can use inkjet transparencies and Classic SU! ink to create these images! Not having to use Stazon ink will save so much time and frustration for everyone!
