More Open House Artwork Sharing!

These are cards I received from my Stampin Up sisters in the September Flood Swap.

Open House Artwork!

So gee, do you think I've made it clear enough I'm having a Studio Open House this Sunday, October 25? Actually, I placed an ad in my local paper which comes out today and I'm having a yard banner made as well. So I hope to get more traffic here and am posting some new cards and projects I've worked on as I noted in my ad I would do. And, I'm also providing a few pictures of cards from some of my other Stampin Up sisters. I'm in a Flood Swap and September was my month to be flooded. It was awesome coming home each day during the month to find several cards in my mail box. I received some very nice artwork and wanted to share. Oh, and what artwork I created was probably CASED as I'm very limited on my time as of late with regard to my own ideas. These 3 I did make.

I'm having a Studio Open House!

Finally! I've intended to have an open house for a while now and have settled on October 25, 2009, from 11-3. Just hope I can be totally ready. I hope if you're in the area you'll join me. I have lots of nice things for sale at major reduced prices. Plus I'll have door prizes too! And, you'll have the chance to preview new products available and possibly create a card to take with you. I hope to see you there!

One of my most prized posessions!

It looks like a plate you may say! It is a plate! But not like any other I own. This plate has very special meaning to me and will forever be displayed at my house. The house I had built and closed on exactly 5 years ago on 10/6/04. My house was a true labor of love and somewhat bittersweet at that. Although the reason for the need to have a new home at the age of 41 was not where I envisioned I'd be, but as they say, there is a reason for everything and this holds true for me when I had my house built. Shortly after moving in I had a house warming and every person I held dear to my heart was there. Which made it even more special. But one of my dearest friends, Gloria, had this plate with her in it's raw form and had every person there that evening sign it and then she had it fired to permanently preserve all the good wishes and signatures. I look at it often and a smile always crosses my face when I do. I keep this plate very close to the ground on a shelf on the island in my kitchen. That way should it ever come off the shelf it doesn't have far to go and will land on a rug. Thereby hopefully preventing it from ever breaking. It is truly one of a kind and can never be exactly replaced nor can the event which brought it to my house ever be duplicated. Thank you all my dear friends for this truly cherished gift which keeps me grounded.
