I’m sharing with you another one of my Convention Swap Cards.

 This was the card I made for the PJ swap at the Marriott hotel.  I’ve participated in that swap since it began and every year I get some really cute cards!!

I used the Choose Happiness Stamp Set with the In Color Designer Series Paper Stacks and one of the reasons I choose that paper is because I could use all five colors for my swaps. 

I love how the “choose happiness” image is perfect for the Label Bracket Punch!!

Here’s the video on how to make my Convention Swap Card #2:

Chic n Scratch  office  

Over the weekend I posted the picture below on one of my Facebook groups.   The following comment was attached  ……  “almost 12 years later my card stock is organized beautifully“.  


The re-organization of my office has been in the works …slowly but surely.  And with Ikea opening in Kansas City later this fall I know I will make some additional adjustments. 

So ….. I have some pictures to share with you … but I think I may need to do a video too.  Sometime this week … there will be a video of my stamp room.  I’ll warn you it’s not perfect … I have some areas that need fixin …. but I think you’ll agree it’s looking good and more importantly … it’s functional!

Thanks & have a great day!!

p.s.  Thanks for all the well wishes!!!   I’m happy to report I feel much better.  I’m still playing catch up …. if you sent me an email and did not get a response please feel free to email me again.
