I had grand plans to sneak away today and go see it, then come back to work the night away at my workbench.
But...instead I'm stuck in bed sick. :(
So I did the next best thing, hubby went out with all 6 kids and picked up some won-ton soup for me from our favorite Chinese restaurant. He ordered me to stay in bed and away from my work bench and get well.
Now here I am curled up with my soup and a bottle of cold medicine, and an almost empty box of tissues, watching Twilight on DVD.
Shhh don't tell him I snuck the lap top in with me so I can answer e-mails. ;)
What are you up to today?

I am thankful for my family: my husband and my two boys
E-mail me Amanda...I can't access your blog to let you know!
I have a Fun new set of custom stamps due in next week!!! Come back and check them out soon :O)
PS I promise I'm getting to messages as fast as I can! I even caved in and bought a phone with a web browser so I can access my convos when I'm out picking up kids and running errands.

I had to put all new projects on hold for awhile so I could take care of my sick kiddies, get caught up on orders and find some helpers!
But....just in time for the big premier! This is the first of the New Moon line.. More to come as time allows.
I sent a few messages to my winner and I haven't heard back so if I don't hear back soon we'll do another giveaway for this one!
This one one of my favorite Quotes from New Moon. I love how the pendant gives the impression of a wolf howling at the moon. I choose this font for it because it reminds me of an old typewriter. I can just picture Stephanie sitting with an antique typewriter by her desk.
Also new today is the first of my "frames" You wont find these any where else because I hand drew this and had a tool maker create a stamp from my sketches. More to come very soon! I'm LOVING my exclusive design stamps!!!! So Fun!!! I will have a giveaway for this one starting this afternoon!

For the other 3 gals who sent me an e-mail, hang in there, I have a few other designs i need to work on so if you sent me an e-mail you'll hear from me this evening in regards to those!
So if you've been hanging around for awhile you know the routine, if you are newer here, I take the first e-mail to my inbox who's info matches what I am looking for.
I need someone with a larger family, a couple with three or more kids, or for a grandmother. I will be using the angelina font on this one.

Kristin and Dan Hubby and wife team and owners of Domestic Bliss just out did themselves! Friday Night's JDRF benefit event was a blast.
Eclectic cowgirls partied it up with live music, a fashion show, a silent auction, and lovely vendors with fantastic eye candy!
A couple of pictures of my set up
I'm sure I say this a couple times a month, but this is my new favorite piece! I was kind of sad to see it sell. I'll just have to make another for me :O) This one will be in my shop soon!
Something you don't see in my etsy shop! I love gem stones and natural rustic jewelry. I have many beaded gem stone necklaces that I sell locally and at shows.
I LOVE fabric!!! I don't sew. I don't really like to sew clothing just not my thing, but I love fabric just the same! Heather's fabrics are so full of Life and Joy. I love her combination of colors and texture in her patterns.
My Neighbor on the other side was the blogging lounge where Stephanie and Christian of the Nie Nie Dialogues greeted people all morning.
Kristin, Stephanie, and Christian Friday night.

Eight years ago I walked into the church (on time) in my pretty white dress, to see you looking sooo handsome in your tux. The rest of the day was a big blur, but I remember in that moment when Father announced us as husband and wife, wondering how we could ever be any more in love than we were rigth then. 8 years have passed, Our family has grown (and grown), and our love deepens more each day.
I am so honored to have you as my partner, my lover, and my truest friend.
I love you baby!
