October Sister Night

Each month the alumni of the Pi Kappa Gamma Sorority gather for dinner. This month we started at Olivu. This is a great place to make your own soaps, lotions, scrubs, and chapsticks. We all had a great time. Here we are at Olivu: Laura, Jessica, Jenni, and Sally.

Then we went to the Highland House for a little dinner. Dana joined us there for a yummy bite, well bites of her Chinese Tootsie Rolls.

Sally, Jenni, Laura, Dana, Jessica, Nicole, and Jennifer. Stayed tuned for pictures of the next night.

Baby Can

I was lucky enough to be invited to a baby shower, and everyone knows that I have to make a baby can. So here are two pictures of what I made. I put a bunch of things in this one. Inside I put a blanket, a portfolio- for keeping paper- which I put in some coupons in, spoons, lotion, soap,a stamped bib, toothbrush, some washclothes some travel cereal containers and a note pad.

New Addition to our family

We got two new guinea pigs. Their names are Oscar and Icey. The black one is Icey and the brown one is Oscar. They will be class pets this year at school.

Bubble Gum Bubble Gum

I made this for a challenge of the 7th of July. It has 7 or more stamped images. I wanted to use a gumball machine and I thought the title could be "Bubble Gum Bubble Gum" some of my friends thought of Goody Goody Gumdrops, but that will have to wait until I use the gumdrop stamp!

CJ's Summer

So most people have kiddie pools for thier children - we have one for our dog. The kiddie pool is too small for CJ and she just loves to swim. She can launch herself into the middle of the pool without needing a running start! The second picture is of her pool toys. The instructions on the box say something along the lines of not intended for chewing - like CJ can read that!!

Happy 4th of July!!!!!!

I made this as part of a challenge. To use a circle somewhere on your card, well I used three. This monkey is from the new Stampin' Up! set called Zoofari.

Colorful Fish

I made these six cards in under 15 minutes. It is from the Very Punny set from Stampin' Up!. I never put greetings on my cards, I wait until I need them to put the final touch on them.

Birthday Greetings to Jen

I made this cool card for my girlfriend, Jen. I am glad that she also likes frogs. I wish she lived closer, but she is only 20 minutes away. I am currently I am trying to covince her to have a pink Pampered Chef party, but she isn't cooperating. The only thing she will do with stamping is cleaning the stamps off!

Each day there are challenges on SCS. I always seem to find them the day or more after they are announced. Well today I made one card that fit two of the challenges. I only used the colors that were suggested,

Every year in June we celebrate my family reunion. This year it was in Brookfield. We had a total of 27 people attend the event. This is a picture of my mother, grandmother and my great aunt.

Getting Punchy

On VC Rocks, I am involved with the Punches swap. I have been seeing all these great creatures using punches. I soon discovered that I needed a few more punches, but those will have to wait until the new catalog in July!

Tank- nub wagger

Here is a picture that I took of Tank on our deck.

Reasons I love Tank

Tank is my other dog. He is a Rottweiler. His page is all Stampin' Up! also. I used the Color Coach to choose the color. I wanted to give dimension to the tag, I used More Mustard and a square stamp then I dragged the tag along the Bravo Burgundy ink pad to give a little color around the edges.
Here are his reasons:
1)The way you tolerate CJ.
2)You think you are a lap dog.
3) You play.
4) You protect me.
5) You take up less space than CJ.
6) You are a big scary (looking) dog.
7)You run away from loud noises.
8)You sleep upside down (on his back)
9) The way you show that you are the boss.
10) The way you wait for our Re-Liv cups.

Reasons I Love CJ

Here is a SB page that I made for my dog, CJ all about the reasons that I love her.
They were:
1) I love that you love to snuggle.
2) The way that you beat up Tank.
3) How fearless you are.
4) The way you wait until dad closes the bathroom door before you go on his side of the bed.
5) That when you sleep, you need to be touching us- even dad!
6) It is so cute when you go into "stealth" mode.
7) That you keep going, going, and going. when we are tired of playing.
8) The unconditional love that you have for everything.
9) How you launch yourself to the middle of the pool.
10) That you can climb the pool ladder to get out of the pool.

Here is her webpage:


Cluster Meeting

On the First Tuesday of the each month, I have a Pampered Chef meeting. This month I was so excited to learn so many cool tips and tricks. We have two new members that just joined, I hope they have as much fun as I do. Anyways, we learned two new types of shows, Stone Cold and Investment Cooking. The Stone Cold is all about ice cream. I can't wait to share this one at my next show. The other theme that we learned about was Investment cooking. Where I teach the host how to prepare and then freeze 3 to 5 meals. This is a totally awesome idea and for not a lot of money.

Erin's 21st Birthday

As I am getting everything ready to go out for my friend Erin's birthday, it dawns on me that maybe I should get her a card! DUH!!! Of course I have tons sitting around that I made for fun, now I get to use one. I have a ton of pictures, but I will only be sharing this one.

Laura's Shower

Are you noticing a trend here? I really do enjoy giving these paint cans away. Not so much making them, well cutting out the paper is a bit stressful! But anyways, I went to a shower for my co-worker Laura, who now is over due! This is baby number 3 and it is going to be a girl. Her and her husband already have two boys.
In Laura's gift she got wash cloths, powder, lotion, toothbrush, and ducks. Again I included a candle because it went along with the theme of the can.

Fishy Baby Can

Here is a picture of her gift.Each item inside was labeled with someting. Inside she got two wash cloths, toothbrushm spoons, manicure set, tub toys, a note pad to remind them to write things down and a candle. Not that babies should get candles, but it was the whole ocean theme that I was going for. I know that Sam and the new baby will enjoy it. Sam, the mom, thought it was cute. I am glad that she likes it.

Sam's Shower

Jenni, Mandy, and I went to our Sorority Sister's baby shower. I also made her a fish themed baby paint can. I will post the can next.

Greetings and welcome to Jenstampingpad!

I just want to welcome everyone to my pad!
