Holiday Drawing Winner!!!

Congratulations AllThatGlittersbyKML!

You are the winner of my "Thank You Customer Appreciation Holiday Drawing".

Your prize package includes many items found in my shop. Santa Baby, Post-it Notes, "Sexy and Sophisticated" Card and Earrings; Holiday Edition! Candy, a sweet holiday card, and a few other selected surprises! www.Crazy4Cards.etsy.com

Your package will be on it's way Monday and should arrive by Wednesday, just in time for Christmas!

To all my followers, let me introduce AllThatGlittersbyKML! You can visited her shop at: www.AllThatGlittersbyKML.etsy.com

Her name is Kristi and she has been making jewelry for over 16 years. What started as a creative outlet has turned into a full blown obsession that has finally earned a permanent spot in her home.

Kristi loves to mix the expensive with the not so expensive to create a polished look that is eye catching and brings this compliment her customer's way.

Kristi has been dubbed through her family and circle of friends as the "Martha Stewart" of the group and adds jokingly "without the insider trading of course".

She hopes her customers find her designs endearing and adds a little sparkle to their day. Kristi adds, "Sometimes, all a girl needs is something new and pretty to wear and what could be better than jewelry!!!"

I agree Kristi! Thank you again for your support and here's to a wonderful 2010 Year!!!

Happy Holidays!

Hugs,
Kim

Holiday Edition



I am pleased to say I have completed my HOLIDAY EDITION of my Lady Cards and they are ready for purchase in my shop.

These elegant, classy lady card designs are all dressed up in their evening best and ready to give that special someone a very Merry Christmas! To top off this beautiful black and white dress is a matching hat. Attached to her new hat is a beautiful set of earrings.

Give that special lady or friend you know a beautiful card and gift in one for the holidays!

I made this card with black and white card stock, rhinestones added for that "Sexy and Sophisticated" look. The hat matches her dress and for that added touch, a large black and white flower. To complete her outfit and hanging from her hat is a set of dangle earrings made with genuine Swarovski Crystal. Each set is designed to compliment the background color.

I thank you very much for looking at my designs!

Happy Thanksgiving!







Happy Thanksgiving one and all! Today is a glorious day to be with your family and share all the special things in your life you are thankful for. Your family, friends, loved ones, co-workers, just giving a smile to a stranger, that's what you are thankful for.

In today's economy it is trying to pull itself out of the slump it was in, we can be thankful we live in a country that allows us freedom. Freedom to choose!

I am thankful for all my customers and lookers! Without you, I wouldn't be doing a craft that I love so much. I appreciate each and everyone of you!

I wanted to share with you a beautiful handmade crocheted afghan my mother made. It fits a Kingsize bed. So for those those cold cold nights! Add this on top of your bed and you will stay cozy and warm!


Thank you for stopping in! Have a wonderful day!!

Thank you Thank you !



So many people have gotten away from sending thank you notes when receiving a gift. Tradition has it when you receive your wedding gifts, baby shower gifts, birthday, you name it. Sending a small note of gratitude is not only a friendly gesture, but a should be a sincere "Thanks" for thinking about my special day.

I have made several packages of different types of "Thank you" notes card sets. They have been a big success. I wanted to share with you two more sets I made today. You can tell me what you think if you want. I love comments. Constructive feedback is always helpful.

I hope you enjoy them and "Thank You" for stopping by!

Wednesday Hump Day

Oh the middle of the week. What a great day! So, I had my craft show this last Sunday. It wasn't too bad. Lot's of people came out for the festival, lot's of lookers. You can sure tell the economy is slow. People are having such a hard time. That is why I like doing my give aways. I just like to give back and thank the buyers that support my craft! It is such a compliment when I make a sale. Not just because I made money, but because someone liked what I made. What a marvelous feeling!

So you all have a really great evening! I will try not to make it such a long time from my last posting.

Ciao!

Fall is almost here...



I can't believe summer is almost gone. It's Labor day weekend, our California State Fair is in their final days. I've been out there once. I am hoping to go at least one more time.

I can't really say we have much of a summer. It hasn't been that hot. Usually we'll have a month or so of three digit weather, but not so much this year. We have been very fortunate not to have many fires in Northern Calif., however, Southern Calif. has their troubles. I hope they contain it soon. It's very sad to see all that beautiful land burned, or mostly sadness for all the people who have lossed homes, their animals, the wild animals as well. It's just too sad!

I haven't been up to much this past week. I made a few Christmas cards. That always puts me in a cheery mood! Next will be the christmas music, but I'll wait until Tuesday. So, let me post a couple for your view. Feel free to post any comments or suggestions!

Saturday Tea Time




I had this really nice lady that made a purchase from my shop. She had a request and very challenging for me to say the least. But all went well and everything turned out so cute!! My customer ordered 50 Halloween cards and 50 Halloween Stress Kits.

Thank you to oriental trading for having adorable erasers in I managed to get these packets ready in one evening, with the help of my girlfriend. The real challenge was creating 50 different cards. I am proud to say they turned out so cute. I posted a couple of pictures so you can see!!

I do love taking the special orders. You dig really deep down inside and challenge yourself to bring out the creativity you poses inside. Once you get going, you go, but once you can't think, you stop. (kind of like writer's block) I went for a day or two where I just couldn't come up with anything. All ended well, package went out today!

I have spent so much time on my side business, I have neglected my hubby, so we have a date tonight! We are going to Reno to see the "Allen Parsons Project"! I am pretty excited. Dinner first, then the concert! I better get going to get ready!

So, if any followers are reading this, don't forget there is two weeks until the drawing!! Get your items now!!

Hugs!

Christmas Tags



Saturday morning was slow for me today. Slept in till 8:00 am! I never do that! I am usually up early. The only reason I think I got up at 8:00 is our Siamese cat was so stinking noisy! Then the dog jumps up and panting. Don't they ever sleep in??? Oh wait I forgot, they sleep all day!

My hubby has been working out of town so much! I don't hardly get to see him. I was able to fix him breakfast today! It was very nice to be able to sit down and eat together. Now he is off for a long day at work, he said he'll probably be late tonight. Then he will have to go out of town again next week to Ukiah.
So I am in my craft room, getting things ready for an up coming craft show. I made these tags!
I love tags. I like to make tags for my own packages. My family doesn't want to open the packages because they are gift wrapped in a theme. Do you ever do that? They are posted on my website, so you can take a look there at all the ones I have made.

Anyway, have fun looking, make a comment or two. I love feedback! If you think of something I could do better at, don't be afraid to tell me. I am OK with that!!! Talk to you soon!

Hugs!!

Happy Birthday To Me!!!

Awww! Today is my birthday and I am having a wonderful day. Although, I am having to work, it's ok. My staff was so cute!! I got a wonderful ceramic ice cream code filled with candy, bow and a cute balloon. A bottle of Merlot, mmm, and Sunflowers!!! Oh they are so pretty!!! And my daughter came to take me to lunch!

Tonight I am meeting my girlfriends for a gathering at a pizza parlor, where we hold our monthly card making workshop. We thought we would get together before the meeting and have a little fun. (not too much as I have to drive home!) Got it covered though, just in case I have a designated driver lined up!

I signed up for a showcase and I am hoping to drum up a few more lookers. Sales have been down since mid-June, so I am hoping it will pick up soon.

All in all, it's a good day in the neighborhood and here is to a great night!!

Hugs!!

Saturday Morning Coffee




Ah! Good Morning.. I am having a great cup of coffee, toffee nut creamer! MMM! My fave. I am reading the online newspaper, saying hello to a few Facebook friends.

Today is a girlfriends birthday! Happy Birthday Angela!!! She and I have known each other for about 9 years. Since her and my birthday are 4 days apart, we usually celebrate with a dinner and a movie. I will buy one and she buys the other. Spending time with each other is the best gift of all.

Middle of July and close to the holidays. There are many "Christmas in July" presentations going on. Many artists are debuting their creations. I have began creating some of my line, only posting a few. I will list a couple and you can tell me what you think!

Have a great Saturday!

Monday Morning Blues

Well, it was back to work today after a wonderful restful vacation. I had a great time with ME! I got up when I wanted, drank my cup of coffee in my favorite sitting area, listened to the music I like. Made myself breakfast and ate it when I was ready! (who cares if it was cold!) It was such a nice feeling to get to know me. Most of the days, I had pure quiet! No TV, no radio, well occasionally my siamese cat wouldn't stop meowing! OMG! Anyone else have a siamese cat?! Love you Baby!!

So I go back to work today, ran a bunch of reports, and waited for our 2:15 all company meeting. So the news came in!!! We lost the bid for the new contract! I was not expecting that piece of news! So now what?! My advise to myself.... "one day at a time"!

Don't forget everyone...grab that recipe for the cheesecake! If anyone makes it, post a comment. Let me know what you think!

Hugs!

Saturday, July 11, 2009

Saturday Morning Coffee

Good Morning! Have you had your morning coffee? I poured myself a cup and thought I would write a few words. Did you all get a copy of that cheesecake? OH you must! It is really so very very good!

I have been off work all week on vacation. I must say I have had a wonderful relaxing week. Hubby was working, and still is out of town, so needless to say, I am all by myself! It was nice to spend time with me. I was busy in my craft room and thinking about what is really more important in life other than stressing myself at work!

Well friends, please enjoy your day and if you have some time, visit my shop!

June Is Busting Out All Over


I can hardly believe it but it is already June! June is such a great month. School is out, it's the 6Th month of the year and there is only 6 more months until Christmas. It's the beginning of summer. There are more weddings in the month of June than any other month. If you live in the mid-west, the June bugs come out.

This June is a celebration for me. I was a June bride! June 23, 1979! This year I will celebrate 30 years with my husband. When you look at the number, it looks like many many years, which really it is. Looking back though, the years have gone by fast. There were a lot of happy years and some not so happy. Isn't that how it is though, the good with the bad? Some days you hate him and many other days you love them to death!

When we first met he was in the Air Force. Oh man! Nothing is better than a man in a uniform! We had one child, Kelly. She was born in January, 1981. Later on when Kelly was a teenager, we had two foreign exchange students. Laura from Switzerland and Kristin from Germany. Laura was one year older and Kristin was one year younger than Kelly. We wanted her to have the experience of having an older sister and a younger sister. It was the greatest part of our lives! I love them as if they were my own.
Now we are going into our golden years, passing some of the trials and tribulations a marriage would endure. I guess I can say I will look forward to the next 30 years! So here's a great big "Happy Anniversary" not only to me and my husband, but to you all as well!

So if there is a special occasion coming up?! Come visit my shop for your card needs!

April - Finally Spring

Hi there!

I can't believe it is April. In three days it will be Easter. Children are making eggs for their upcoming hunt. Families will get together for Easter dinner..but let us not forget what this day really is. It's not about the Easter bunny, or finding eggs, or eating the goodies out of the baskets. It's about the resurrection of our lord Jesus Christ. The price he paid for us. So let us be kind to one another, smile to a stranger, because it is 'what' is in your heart.

To all my Etsy friends and customers! Have a wonderful holiday!
