Didja Miss Me?

Wow, I have been a very baaaad little blogger lately.  I have been working on a huge project, which I began planning LAST YEAR, and just started last month...  *sigh*    But, since it is still Top Secret, I'll have to make you wait for deets.  Sorry!  Can't risk it, kids, waaaay too much work went into it!       That said, I really need to figure out this plan-ahead posting I keep hearing about...

**********

ANYhoo... I have managed to squeeze in a couple of small projects, and have just now sat down with the pics to post, so let's stroll down Memory Lane for the last few weeks of Beth's StampInsanity...

 

Project #1: Peyton's marble jar.    I got tired of the 'stickers as rewards' thing for my hard-rockin' baby boy.  (OK, he's 6, but I digress.)  So, I made a jar - he earns marbles in lieu of stickers and then he can exchange them for rewards when he saves up enough.  It works smashingly, but what is really important here is the JAR!  jar I picked it up at the craft store and dressed it up (very quickly, I might add) with SU's chipboard star and heart (ON SALE in May, kids!).  I used the Cherise DSP, and the Wide and Gingham grosgrain ribbons.  On the lid, I used the Large and Small Star punches to create the 'cutout' star, and the remnants of the two ribbons I had leftover.  I glued a thumbtack through the ribbon to use as a handle.   jar lidSimple, cute, and so much more attractive in my kitchen than a sticker chart!

Now, I DO have more to share, but I'll have to make you wait for it... I have a "starving" spawn to feed, and DumDum here staring at me like she is also starving: dumdum

 

Happy Stampin', Friends!  It feels great to be bloggin' again!

 

See you soon...
