My Clear Dollar Stamp order

I received my order from over at! I was so excited to open the envelope that you would have thought it was Christmas morning. I was a little sad that several of the stamps I had ordered were out of stock but they refunded my money and also sent me the free item even though my order didn't total the required amount after the refund. How awesome is that?

My maternal grandpa

I have only seen one picture of my maternal grandfather and it was old enough and the picture was taken from far away. There has always been this question about what he looks like. My sister has been working on our family tree and has made connection with his last wife and her family. This week my mother received a picture from them of my grandpa. WOW! This was like Christmas. I know that my mom was excited but I have to say that I was also excited to see what he looked like.
He is the one that is leaning on the car, second from the right. I was a little sad that I couldn't see more of his face but also at the same time very excited that this was the most I have ever seen of him. I think he died in 1972 and I was born in 1974. He lived in Washington and I never got to meet him. My mom hadn't seen him since she was 12. There are so many unanswered questions and I can only imagine how many my mom has. But today one of those questions was answered, I now know what my grandfather looks like!!!

New website adventure!

This morning I was surfing the web and some how came across the coolest website! It is called Clear Dollar Stamps and you can find it at To make it even better they are not too far from me. How have I never heard of this website? They have some really good deals on their stamps, my first order I went through their clearance pile and they are selling Stickles for $1.25 plus they have tons of stamps for just $1.00.

So excited for my new find! Can't wait to get my order. Will take pics as soon as my order arrives.

Cricut BLING!

I got a wild hair today and decided to add some bling to my Cricut!


I made a double layout of pictures from January 1976. I was a year and a half and my sister was three and a half. I used the Sisters paper kit from Paper Studio. Sometimes less is more, I really like how this turned out! Love my sister!

My Christmas Handmade item

I found these at Hobby Lobby. This is the before picture, I think I spent a total of maybe $6 for all three.
This is the after picture. I used some paint, cardstock, a metal tag holder and some ink. I think they turned out pretty cute and was less then $10 to make.
Close up picture, couldn't get the picture to rotate.
