Maker Faire This Weekend

 For those of you in the Bay Area, don't forget that Maker Faire is this weekend in San Mateo. The guys and I LOVE this event. It is like Disneyland for geeks. I remember it being referred to as "Burning Man meets Martha Stewart". It's hard to define, but check out this video for a preview of the makers that will be there.

Mama You Are Simply the Best

Here's the Mother's Day card I designed for my Mother-in-law. She actually received it on time since yesterday was the 10th and that is the traditional Mexican Mother's Day.

The card is clean and simple and I used stamps from Mama=love by Technique Tuesday and Bannerific from Lawn Fawn. I did paper piecing for the birds and the banner. All the papers are from Crate Paper.

Well, I've got to run. I'm working at school the rest of the day. Have a good one!

Love You Mom

Hi everyone, I hope all you moms had a great Mother's Day yesterday. I had a very relaxing day with the guys. They served me a yummy veggie omelet in bed. Very nice.  I finally got to see "Eat Pray Love" on Netflix (I'm very behind on movie watching).

The Little Guy started with a fever yesterday, so I have him home today. I hope he's better tomorrow since he has state testing that continues this week.

This card is still on it's way to my mom in New Mexico. I've never made her a long & skinny card before. Angie Tieman always rocks these skinny (and all other) cards, so I was inspired by her style.

The stamps are from the Mama=love set from Technique Tuesday and the Love You Much set from Stampin' Up. The impression plate is from Papertrey Ink. The papers are all from Papertrey Ink.

Thanks for stopping by.
