Thank yous for Moms

This past weekend my oldest DS moved from a small apartment to a larger apartment with several of his friends. One of the moms were nice enough to offer her van to move large items. Next week DS and one of his roommate are going on a trip together. That mom was nice enough to books the flight & hotel together so they could sit near each other etc. So I made thank you cards for my son to give to the moms who have helped him so much this week.

Anytime is Stampin' Time

Here are some items I stamped for my VC ROCKS! hotel roomie. The card is made with some of her favorite colors: So Saffron, Old Olive & Cameo Coral. The 3x3 peice is the same on both items.

Loving Son

Teens love to stamp just as much as adults and it isn't just the girls. My sons both stamped with me when they were little. They had their own stamps and markers. They would make home-made gifts etc. One year my youngest DS made his entire class personalized bookmarks with stamps and the designs matched the students personality. Both my boys are very artistic. Well I was hostessing a Teen 3D swap and hardly any teens were joining-so I begged my son to join telling him I saw a really cute idea for necklaces on line and he coudl do something like that and give one to his girlfriend etc...So the bribery worked. Eventually I did get enough teen stampers and unfortunately my son and his girlfiend broke up before he gave her the necklace. Oh well he has a gift made for the next one. And he ws the only boy to join the swap so hopfully all the girls that receive one of these will like it. Isn't just as cute as can be!

Sweetest Day Ever

Here is a cute little gift made with a Sizzixpilow box dies, 7mm transparencies and the Crazy for Cupcakes set. Really, anything small could go in here but who doesn't like M&Ms. I don't know how many pictures I took in NY at the M&M store for heaven's sake!


I joined several swaps this year on VC ROCKS! a yahoo group I belong to. The key chain was a budget swap that the items had to be less than a dollar. The butterfly is a 2x2 tile on a magnetic clip (from Walmart) then I coated it with chrystal effects and put glitter over it. This could be stuck on something metal or it can actually stand on a table as a photo/note holder.

My Son's 3D Animation Practicum

My son who went away to CDIA at Boston University finished his practicum with the "team" he was paired up with. Their client was the Asian Task Force Against Domestic Violence and this is the video they made and I believe it will be used as the opening video when Atask has conferences etc. Now he just needs a job to pay for his education. Leave a post if anyone needs something animated :)

Stamping Spree

Is It A Guy Thing?

My son just finished taking his shower. Why do boys/men do this? They get undressed right next to the hamper but cant put the dirty clothes in it! What is up with that. And you are looking at most of my bathroom in this photo! My bathroom is only 7'x10' before the shower, toilet, sink & closet were put in there. I mean you have to leave to change your mind for heaven's sake.
