I had some left over drop cloth from the curtains I made so I decided to make a Halloween pillow. I used the SU Alphabet Die as a stencil for the lettering. I didn't have fabric paint and actually just used a sharpie paint pen. I just printed a raven image out, cut it out and traced it on the pillow. I also just used hot glue turning it inside out. Happy crafting!

I just received the Autumn Accents Die and have been having so much fun creating home decor items and I haven't even started on cards yet! I ran the die through the Big Shot using SU's Adhesive sheets. As I don't sew, I hot glued the two sides then turned it out so you can't see that I don't sew and left the top open tied with jute so I can switch out the covers. I am already thinking of what I can do for Christmas with red burlap! Have a great day!

I finally had a chance to use my new Autumn Accents Big Shot Die and created this wreath inspired by the wreath in the SU Catalog. All paper is Stampin' Up! I started with a foam wreath from the Dollar Store, covered it in burlap and went to town cranking out the leaves. I love how it turned out. Happy Fall!

I wanted to put together a little something to thank a very kind family who came to my daughters rescue when her car broke down. The nice thing about being an SU demo is I always have plenty of materials and ideas for just this reason! I made a set of birthday cards, a Hershey nugget tin and little jar, a Yankee candle (who doesn't love those!) and the new SU Holiday catalog, as I was told the mom enjoys crafting!

I was so excited to go on the Riverton Tour of SU. It is a beautiful building and I can't imagine working there. I was determined to get my picture taken with the SU rock. It sounds funny to think that we actually waited in line for this, but it is a must have photo op for SU demos.

One of the best things about Convention is meeting people from literally all over the world who happen to love creating as much as you do! Through the years I have taken so much inspiration from these 4 amazingly talented ladies and I was so blessed to not only meet them, but also get my picture with them! They all were just as kind and gracious as they appear on their blogs, check them out! For some reason I am unable to edit next to the final picture, but most stampers know who she is and she is just as amazing in person! Dawn from Dawns Stamping Thoughts and she swapped with me, woohoo!

I'm back! Well I never really went away. I continue to be an SU Demonstrator, but neglected to devote the time to my blog because life got in the way, but I am determined to post at least once a week and will actually play catch up with things I have done, starting with...Convention! It has been a dream of mine to attend and what better year than the 25th Anniversary! I am in 3 organized swaps and also did general swaps.
