Merry Christmas 2012

My Holiday card was coming along fine with my owl Rubber stamps. However the kids were not exactly excited to pose for the picture to go inside of the card. Even with teens it is hard to get a good family Holiday picture. So this year I just went with what I had. Something to…

Accucut and The Rise of The Guardians

I haven’t seen the movie, The Rise of the Guadians, but I want to. I know it is a kids movie, but the funny, little hat people make me smile every time I see them. And let’s face it, after this past, sad week, we all need a smile right about now! Anyway, I was…
