About Me

My photo
I am a stay-at-home mom. I have been married to my handsome and wonderful husband for over 14 years. Right now he's battling stomach/esophagus cancer. So I do my best to craft when I can. I have two wonderful boys. My oldest, Garett, is 24 and served 5 years in the Navy. He's been home since the beginning of the year (2014). We are very proud of him. My youngest, "DJ", is 13 and in the 8th grade. I have two Border Collie mix dogs (Koda and Rugu), one Calico cat (Hydie), one orange Tabby cat (Bosley), one Tea Cup Chihuahua (Gigi...I LOVE her sooo much), a Chiweinnie (Lily....sweetest dog ever), and a Jack Russell/Chihuahua (Connor....AAALL boy).

MPC's Christmas in July Blog Hop

Half way there....can't believe it!!  Eeesh....sometimes thinking about it makes me itch LOL.

I love Christmas...EVERYTHING about it.  But mostly I love the Spirit of Christmas.  So to do something in July makes it a little bit giddy for me.

So thank you so much for joining our blog hop.  The first one that Mountain Plains Crafters has had.  If you are here after visiting Terri...then you are headed in the right direction.  We would like to thank #Clearsnap for making the hop all possible.  We each got the three items in our picture(s) to craft with.  And YOU have the chance to win all of the same 3 products.  All you have to do is leave a comment on each of our blogs.  I'll tell you more after you see my projects.

  I made my tag for the Reindeer Food using the Archival ink to stamp with, the Smooch Spritz for the tag top...which you can't see really well :( ...and the edges were painted with the Smooch Spruce Ink.  The little directions say:

Sprinkle on your lawn at night
the moon will make it sparkle bright
As Santa's reindeer fly and roam
this food will guide them to your home.

How fun to give this little gift to a special little neighbor child, niece/nephew, or just to keep for yourself and your children?

My next project I will be uploading soon so if you have come here and it's not below, check back later.

So thanks for coming by and visiting my blog.  Next up is the AMAZING Marilynn.  Don't forget to leave a comment here and on everyone else's blog for your chance to win some of these products for yourself. They are SO fun.  And if you want to follow me....I would love that.
