Here's another one!!!!

I had this sketch sitting around getting dusty!!! I finally thought it was time to make these cuties into stamps!!!! They are 2 1/2 x 4" tall a great size for journaling without taking up too much room and add some whimsy to your layout!!! How about baby announcements!!!! I would love to see a set of baby announcements done with the baby data written in the journal space!

I'm still around!!!

Hahaha I have been nudged by my friends Tricia and Regina!!! Thanks for waking me up girls!!! I have been super busy trying to get several new sets of stamps completed....I have one set completed that I am thrilled with! It's called Rocket Ride and I am just to the moon on this one!!! My DH even commented on how much he likes it!!! That is a feat in itself! I also have an add on set I'm working on for this set. It's words like "far out" and "out a sight". They can be used with this set or alone. I'm still trying to get my owl set just right....sometimes I think I'm just overly particular! But that's just me a regular fussy~butt! The other sets are a series I'm doing of word blocks. I was hoping to get them done and ready to reveil this weekend...since it is CHA weekend! so hopefully I will by Sunday evening...either way whatever is done will be loaded in the computer and put online for all to see! I personally can't wait and I hope you are as excited as I am!
On the scrapbooking side of my life I did get a couple of projects done. Unfortunately one I gave to my nephew and forgot to take a photo first!!! DUH He had an idea for a story, but never wrote it down. I made an altered notebook to encourage him to collect his thoughts....that is where I got the idea for the word blocks. Talk about necessity being the mother of invention!!! The other project was a word book that Stacey at Paper Popsicles had a class on. She has some amazing ideas and tricks you need to check out!!!
Well, it's late and I have a full day ahead (as usual!!) Thanks again to my friends for lighting a fire under my blog!hahaha Atleast I know there is a couple of ladies interested in my life!;) Love Ya!!!

Has it really almost been a month since the last time I posted!!! Well I have some info to share with you!!!! At Paper Popsicles there is a clearance sale going on!!!! I'm talking great sale on pattern paper by 3bugs, Dream Streets, Scribble Scrabble, Pebbles Inc., and more! Also rubons, stickers, clear stamps by Heidi Swapp....Can you say Super Sale!!!!! Eight pages worth of clearance goodies!!! You better hurry because at these prices they won't last long!

Also my friend, Taryn at Paper Popsicles is opening a scrapbooking retreat! How fun is that!!!! It's called the the hamburg hideaway. I have given you links to see how it's turning out!! I love watching the progress of her remodel! I would love to go and hope to one day! It's in Hamburg Pennsylvania. And I do have family in NJ, so that would be a fun side trip!

On my business side, I have been trying to complete a Making Waves set since February!! UGH! But there is light at the end of the tunnel and I'm determined to finish it up this weekend...Husband willing!!hahaha Also I have been working with another friend at Paper Popsicles, Brenda. She couldn't find an owl stamp that she liked. So through PM's back and forth I think I came up with something she likes! I need to clean him and his friends up and send her a copy to see if she likes him and his friends or if there is still changes to be made. I think he is rather cute! A bit chuncky, but aren't we all!!! hahaha Now you know what has been keeping me busy along with my energetic 5 year old!!! I'm tired!

Fun with my new toy!!!

I love my new toy....a camera!!!! A Canon Powershot A580 to be exact. I was able to try it out the next day when we went to see Thomas the Train on the 12th. Alot of fun and alot of opportunity to take photos!!! I still have alot of playing to do, that is how I love to learn. Yes I read the directions and manuals but for the most part I play! Yesterday I tried out the micro..I got a few real closeup photos of Timmy's face, I love those blue eyes and eyelashes!!! Timmy liked to make faces and see how they came out...ME TOO!!! Here's one close up and personal!!! hey sounds like a good title for a layout!!!haahaha which reminds me I have to get all the photos developed to see how much I really do like my new camera!!!

I haven't blogged in almost 3 months!!!! OH My!!! Thanks to Tricia for giving me a kick in the pants...very nicely though!!! She emailed me a note, short and sweet....."update your blog!!!" So here I am updating my blog!!!
So much going on, alot of Birthdays in March. Which means alot of running around. but now it is April and only mine and my nephews birthday is this month....at the end of the month in fact! We do have one more party for DS at Grrrmamas house, since my niece is home from college this weekend. We can't leave out Timmy's favorite Andra as he calls her!
Then I have also been busy with the stamp company....if I'm not working on orders I'm creating new stamps...I think y'all will love the new one in the works!!! I've also been working with Melissa at Paper Popsicles. She made an awesome set of Robots, they are so much fun and come in a wonderful theme pack! Then we put our heads together and came up with a wonderful little set. But don't let the size fool you it is so versatile your inks will dry before you finish thinking of possibilities for this set!!! It is available in the Lemon Pie kit at Paper Popsicles. She may be selling it in her store also...but the kit is really fun and the stamps were made to match that set beautifully!!!
Well back to work...had to update the blog didn't want to let Tricia down!!! You should come and chat with all of us at the forum...she'll keep you in stitches....hum another idea for a stamp set don't you think! ;)

A New Year!!!

WOW!!! 2008 is here! My goal is to add a new set of stamps a week. I added the ticker to keep track of my goal, which I set alittle higher. So if you see the butterfly move and want to see what is new in my online store go to http://www.thatsjazzystampdreams.com/ and see what's new! I am very excited and have a few friends inspiring me. I am finishing up on a swirl stamp (below)that Lynda helped inspire along with a layout list that she thought of! And I also have a set that is in the works to use on the gifts and cards alot of you like to do, that was an idea from Tricia. So I have been extremely busy and loving it!!!! Of course Paper Popsicles is my online home, I'm always there when I'm not working on the stamps....sometimes when I am working on the stamps! ahahaahaa Here are the new Swirl stamps I just finished. The large one is 5" and the triple Swirls are 31/2"!
hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoy making them!!! They should be available at Paper Popsicles hopefully by next weekend. And of course at that's jazzy stamp dreams site! Well time to get started on another set of stamps!!!
