what's a girl to do when the temperature drops to a -30 windchill? A girl simply hunkers into the stamp studio and has a little fun…except I felt I had better be a good example to my kids. I desperately wanted to play with my stamps but Denver had an appt today with the orthodontist for braces to be put on. (Ella told him he looked so different she didn't even want to look at him…Honey, be kind. Boys egos are fragile!) so once we got back, I didn't think that I could justify playing when I had a very very long overdue tutorial waiting for a customer…Like 9 months overdue…
So today, I finished up several things that have moved from "whispering" to "yelling" at me in my mind. I finished up my Stamps By Mail tutorial from like last March? using the A Little Bit of Spring Set. I need to sit down and figure out if this is something I want to change, continue or scrap but regardless my poor friend Chris has been so patiently waiting for the directions. Here's one of the cute little cards that was included in the kit. And yes, I too, will be leaping for joy come spring! (hint: the Gumball Green ribbon is on the clearance rack!)

And just to help me remember that there is such a thing as summer, I bottled up some honey for sale in my studio. You too can have your own little taste of summer! I know I'm biased but I really think my honey is the absolute best! We have glass 1 lb bottles for $6.75 and 12oz honey bears for $5.00. Yes I can ship!
So now, all those little voices can go back to a whisper until the next fire roars out of control. Although the voice asking for a "more professional looking label" for my jars has been whispering urgently :) Oh to be a man where you can just tune those things out!
