Happy Memorial Day!
Just a few signs/wall decor I have finished.
The top one was a gift for a very good Friend's Birthday. 
It's hard to see, but the "STAMPING" part, cut using the Big Shot and the serif dies...
are some SU papers...

This was the first sign I made and the guinea pig for all the others. I was going for Old Timey/Vintage....and still working and experimenting with that. The second sign(a reason for being away)
For Alex my oldest, his new house bought, repainted and fixed up by us all and....His just recent Marriage, to Liz, an awesome new addition to the Woodruff "Fudge" Family!
I Love her Dearly and she Scrapbooks (another Bonus!) HEHE!

I'm hoping to acquire a Silhouette Soon..HINT HINT HINT Honey! For more Letter fonts! 
Otherwise I will stick to the methods I have been using....Here I will show you:
 If you don't have an awesome die cutting or the "just right letter die", find a font on the computer you love...expand it to fit your board,and print it up. 
Trace the back with a charcoal pencil, a black colored pencil works also.
Place it where you want it, a little tape, and using your bone folders....rub!
Paint it in.
Old Timey/Vintage...means you can mess up and it will still looks great!
Also hit up your Habitat Thrift Stores and the cut bins in your Hardware Stores, sometimes you can get boards for Free or Pennies!
More signs to show later....

While I've been away....

I have a lot to show you all, and the next few post will explain my absence.
A little redo of me...
began with a little health scare at Christmas, it's little now cause luckily it amounted to nothing but a big headache. An accident recently
involving a visit to a Dr. McDreamy (are you familiar with the doc's on Grey's Anatomy)
some changes in between I made happen, things I have been longing to do again and have.
It's a book, so I will not bore you all at once.
But I will say this "This is a no Cortisol Zone" Seriously!

Now to the biggest decision I made this year, if you have not noticed yet....
Yes, I am no longer an SU DEMO!
It was the hardest change I made, but  I will be back, when the time is right.
For now, I will still do my blog and yes SU (cause that is all I really have) products
will be the main show here, 
I  have other awesome projects to show some involving organization of all my craft and SU stuff!
YEP! another stamp cave redo.
This time I went for pretty-it being functional was a plus.
Mommies  room!
As always going to keep it short...

The projects/birthday presents above-
Branches wired together, floral foams cut in half and a lot of punching (Small oval & Boho)
Styrofoam glue and straight pins.
Need to know know what to do!
