Organization 101

Ha, ha...organization and Stephanie in the same sentence is pretty funny. :)

I have to be really honest here. I'm a slob. I really am. Looking at my desk, I have a paper towel from yesterday's lunch, a newspaper article that's two weeks old and so much more junk. :)

But, when it comes to my stamps, I want to know where everything is. When I need a stamp, I want it NOW. ;)

Here's a video on how to organize your stamps...Club Members, you know all about this! ;)

Summer is winding down and as much as I protest, it's back to school soon for us. I am SO NOT a morning person! I struggle more than the kids!

I wanted to show you this adorable card by Rosemary D.

I love how she used the summer4fun stamp set! And the sand looks REAL! Flower Soft is a wonderful product! ;) I love how she turned the wave stamp upside down to make more sand. And the sandals look so cute, I want to slip my feet into them and walk in the sand. ;)

Rosemary, if you have a blog, contact me so I can get you a special Blog Badge letting the world know you were showcased here! :)

Also, there will be a stamp sneak peek on the fan page of Facebook later today....{smile} Become a Fan by clicking here so you don't miss it!

Here's a recent picture of Princess Cookie...

Isn't she adorable?!? My Mom gave me the little bed for my birthday. ;) That's a bone hanging from her mouth. ;)

Can you believe how fast summer is going by? My girls go back to school in two weeks. :( I can't believe how busy this summer has been. Church camp, ASB camp, cheer camp, cheer practice, dance practice...and that's just the kids! ;)

The countdown continues until our trip to San Marcos, TX! I hope we get to meet many of you there! The {in}famous Ken will be there, too! {And youngest daughter Katie}. Cookie and big sister Kirstin are staying home....Kirstin is too busy to come with us. ;)

On another note, I just finished designing a few stamp sets. I can't wait to share them with you! I'm also working on another project and it's REALLY exciting, but will be about one more month before I can share... I love these types of secrets! :)

It's a Beautiful Day!!!

Today, August 11th, is my birthday! ;)

Yes, it's true, I'm another year older. I'll be honest, birthdays really don't bother me {yet!}. I'm still willing to celebrate my day. :) And, since calories don't count on holidays, like birthdays, I plan on eating lots of junk today! :)

I think it's really appropriate that I celebrate my birthday with this new Special Release Stamp Set. {Actually, there are three new releases, but one is extra special!}

Check out the video to see the Special Releases...
