Wow...what a day!

Today I was planning on making some more birthday cards for my client & friend, Jenny, but I just HAD to sit down and watch Oprah's last show.....which I DVR'd to watch when I had a free moment...LOL!  When does a stay-at-home mom have a free minute?! was one of Oprah's best shows....and I have watched a LOT of her shows over the years.  She was the one who got me SO into Dr. Oz, and watching his new show all the time.  Her show today was Oprah just talking to all of us....but I feel like my mother was channeling her and talking directly to me about validating myself.  It was a TRULY powerful moment in my life that changed how I view myself.  I hope everyone, everywhere validates themselves and realizes how truly special we all are!!

And since I have to pick up my boys soon....and still have laundry to finish and dishes to do, etc, etc....maybe I'll get back to making cards tomorrow!!

Stamped Tiles/Custom-made Coasters!

I just up loaded a bunch of my recent handmade stamped tiles/coasters!  I forgot to add them after I made them all for a friend for her Mother's Day presents!  They make terrific presents, too!  How many people would like some cool stamped tiles/custom coasters?!  I LOVE the ones I made for my house.....and I have a TON of them!!  Every room has several coasters in it.  It's quite a conversation started, too!  And I love the fact that I can personalize them for, women, kids....any occasion, too!  Here's a sample of what I made recently!

Sympathy cards are so hard to make!

I had to make a sympathy card yesterday for a friend of mine and a co-worker of my husbands.  This card was VERY difficult to make!  Not only did I want to make it perfect for her family, but I also wanted to honor her with a beautiful card.  It was difficult because every time I make a card, I always put my heart and soul into making it.  So sympathy cards, for those people I know, are tough to make.  Here's the card I made for her funeral on Saturday, May 21, 2011.
