Calling All Guest Bloggers

Thursday, October 22nd, 2009

Hi all !  Do you have a harvest or holiday craft or recipe you’d like to feature ?  Does your family have a special tradition you’d like to share?  Is there some decorating or seasonal project you’d like to showcase ?

The week of November 23rd (Thanksgiving Week) is Guest Blogger Week.  You don’t need to have a blog to participate.  All I will need is an article and a few good pictures.  Send me an email if you’d like to be a part of the week’s lineup.  I only have room for ten, so let me know soon.

Cheers to all of you in this upcoming holiday season,


Cards by Elise at Mama Cow Designs

Thursday, March 12th, 2009
I have a mega talented girlfriend Elise who is amazing at, oh, everything. She has some serious skills in the scrapbooking and card making department. I can’t even wrap my head around some of the creations she comes up with. I begged her to let me feature some of her cards. Then I begged her to put her beauties on Etsy so the world could appreciate them too. To me, these are little works of art.

Hard to see, but the froth is very sparkly.

Stitching, ribbons, stamping… how does she do it?

I love everything about this one: the colors, the embossing, the sparkle, the sentiment.

The handmade card holder is a nice personal touch.

A picnic invitation you can’t refuse. She stitched this napkin !

This is just one corner of Elise’s studio. Most of the products she works with are from Stampin Up, but she gathers goodies from all sources. Isn’t she the best? Contact Elise at [email protected]. She is a rep for the Stampin Up company if you fall in love with anything from their website/catalogue.
