DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #213-Cupid Paper Piecing

#213

 

Hi Stampers,

Back with another DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge. This week we have a  home sweet home challenge. I was pretty limited on what to make this week because I waited until last week to place my preorder from the Occasions catalog. Wouldn't you know it will be delivered tomorrow? My Mom used to say a day late and a dollar short. This describes me to a tee. LOL I thought it would be fun to do a cupid paper piecing.

Magnetic Bowl for your Framelits/Thinlits

Hi Stampers,

My husband and I have been doing some cleaning/purging of our polebarn. A great project to begin the new year, right? Well, I was telling him how I keep misplacing some of my framelits/thinlits and how easy it is to lose them. Well, lo and behold, he had this magnetic bowl. I will ALWAYS keep this next to my Big Shot. It works great!!!! You can buy either the bowl or tray at your local Sears store!!! I'm telling ya, you won't be sorry!!

Christmas Hedgehog Tags

Hi Stampers,

Before Christmas, I was rearranging some things in my craft room and came across these old Lasting Impressions brass stencils. Remember these?

Stencil

I have a hedgehog with a bunny brass stencil. Well, my upline, Dawn Olchefske, loves hedgehogs. I made her a set of four tags. Aren't these cute??

You use the embossing mat with these in the Big Shot. I just cut 1/8" of an inch around the shape and paper pieced them together.

I know these aren't Stampin' Up! but all the consumables are. Sometimes you need to breathe new life into some old tools and just create!!! LOL

I hope to use more of these in the future for something different.

If you have any lying around, I hope you give them a try!!!

Word of the Year-Perserverance

Hi Stampers,

Have any of you participated in doing word of the year? I have been doing this for a few years now. I try to pick ONE word that will meet my goals and desires for the year. For instance, one year I wanted to cut back on spending so I picked FRUGAL. I have also used the words simplify,  blessed, grateful... Those are the ones that come to mind.

This year it is the word PERSERVERANCE.

per·se·ver·ance

ˌpərsəˈvirəns/
noun
 
  1. steadfastness in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success.
    "his perseverance with the technique illustrates his single-mindedness"
    synonyms: persistence, tenacity, determination, staying power, indefatigability, steadfastness,purposefulness;
    intransigence, obstinacy;
    informalstick-to-it-iveness;
    formalpertinacity
    "in a competitive environment, perseverance is an invaluable asset"

     

    This word is perfect for me this year. I will use this as my mantra in my faith/bible study, finances, my Stampin' Up! business and especially fitness. Instead of New Year resolutions, I like to do the word of the year.

    I also like to do planners. Well, I wanted a planner for birthdays, appts, and such, one for faith/bible study and one for fitness. Well, needless to say, I am NOT carrying around 3. After researching the internet, the one I went with is by MAMBI or Me and My Big Ideas. They are perfect!!! They have one for home, wedding, fitness, faith, teacher........ I bought mine at Michael's and got 60% off!!! It only cost 13.99!!! instead of 53.99!!! I also bought the faith sticker pack for 7.99. Even though this is the fitness planner, I can use it for all 3. I also like that it is expandable!!!

     I wish Stampin' Up! would sell planners and planner stamps. They are SO popular right now.

    I hope you give this idea a try!!! Shoot me an email and let me know which word you picked!!! I would love to hear from you!!!

    Thank you for visiting my blog!!!
