What I Did Over My Weekend

A Short Essay by Connie Stewart

Ikea round 4

The Stewarts had a TOUGH weekend.  Mr. Awesome spent Friday and Saturday designing a new office space for our computer desks (thank you Ikea for cool software).  It’s actually our formal dining room but we’re not really formal dining room people anyway so an office made more sense.  So, we made the trek to Ikea, a 3 hour drive, 9 hours of shopping, and 3 hours home, with a U-Haul in tow.

We are sore. We are tired.  And we haven’t even STARTED on the remodel yet.  We’re actually doing more than just the computer area.  We are somewhat redoing the dining room too.  We have some BEAUTIFUL heirloom china that belonged to Rich’s grandmother and it’s sitting in a box because we’ve never had a place to put it.  We will now!  We have a really nice China hutch to put it in plus new dining room chairs to update the look.

My girls have outgrown their twin beds so we also got them full-sized beds but they are SO cool.  The mattress lifts up and underneath is a HUGE amount of storage.  Their rooms aren’t huge so hidden storage is a must.

Malm bed from Ikea

Thank heavens our best friends Mark & Brenda are coming for a visit next week and they have graciously offered to help us with the project.  When they see how much stuff we have, they may take the first flight out of here though!  We are not in a hurry to get it all done in a week so we just work when we can.  We plan to bribe them with dinner at some of Oklahoma City’s best restaurants. <wink>  Mark & Brenda can always be bribed with CrabTown, one of our favorite places to eat.

Here’s what I designed for this weekend’s challenge…

This is one of the new stamp sets from the Occasions Catalog – Birthday Blooms.  I pulled out my Blender Pens, which I haven’t use in a while, and boy am I glad I did!  These water-colored flowers turned out fabulous!

This card was a lot of fun to create.  I used the Tag Talk stamp set, one that I haven’t put ink on in a while.  It’s a little on the “country” side, I think, but it’s really pretty!

FLASH CARD – Thoughts & Prayers Sympathy Card – Video No. 77

Flash Cards by Connie Stewart - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com

Sympathy cards aren’t my favorite cards to make but they are necessary.  When you need a sympathy card, you need right away so FLASH CARDS are perfect for this.

On Monday, I needed a sympathy card and fast.  The Stage Manager for “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof”, the show I’m in right now, had a death in the family that forced her to leave town for a few days.  We were lost without her and the entire cast wanted to express their sympathy to her so I whipped this card up in minutes before I headed out the door to rehearsal.

FLASH CARD VIDEO - Thoughts & Prayers - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com - February 4, 2016 blog postFLASH CARD VIDEO - Thoughts & Prayers - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com - February 4, 2016 blog post

I took a quick picture of it and thought “Surely I am not the only one who needs a sympathy card super fast” so I thought I would make a video on how to create this one but for my video, I am going to create the masculine version of the card.

2-Minute Tuesday Tip Video – Curvy Corner Trio Punch – Tip #1

2-Minute Tuesday Tips by Connie Stewart - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com

I LOVE my Curvy Corner Trio Punch.  I truly do!  Three punches in one means I get more for my money…. this makes me happy.

A couple of weeks ago, one of my Stampin’ Up team members, Emily, sent me a card using the Curvy Corner Trio Punch in a way I had not seen before.  SO cool!  Of course, I am typing this blog post and dog-gone-it, I can’t find her card!  My stamp space is a bit of a mess (sorry, Emily) so until I can find her card, I created my own card.  I whipped it up super fast.

Cleaning a garage is dangerous…. very dangerous.  I told you on Friday I wanted to surprise Mr. Awesome by doing a super clean on the garage. I know he hates doing it and we have a BIG remodel project coming up in a few weeks and that garage had to be clean and organized before he could start.  I spent the entire day Friday working on it and I learned something.  That whole “lift with the legs, not with the back” thing?  Yeah, they mean that.  OUCH!  I tried lifting a heavy box with my legs but the stuff in the box shifted and I kind of tried to move really fast to get it where it needed to go and used my back to stand up.  I paid for it all weekend.  Feeling better today though but a valuable lesson learned.  I share this knowledge with you.  You’re welcome.  :)

Stampin’ Girls Gone Wild Weekend Challenge

Stampin' Gals Gone Wild Weekend Challenge! Join me! www.SimplySimpleStamping.com

It’s been a ROUGH week, I won’t lie.  Rehearsal for “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” has been SUPER hard.  We no longer have scripts in our hands and no longer are given lines when we don’t know them.  I’m too old for this!  lol  The role of Big Mama is VERY emotional.  I cry, I scream, and I cry some more.  I come home so emotionally drained from it.  Don’t get me wrong!  I LOVE it, I really do, but some shows are harder than others.

If anyone is in need of some stampin’ time it’s me.  Do you ever feel the need?  My stamp does wonders for me when I need to de-stress from the week.  That’s why the Stampin’ Gals Gone Wild Weekend Challenge is my favorite!

I gave my background some texture with the Brick Wall embossing folder and the Love Blossoms Paper Stack.  It needed one more thing and I decided to add some white baker’s twine around the card.  It was the perfect touch.

I have fallen in LOVE with the Grateful Bunch bundle.  The sentiments that came with the set were just a tad too big to fit into the space I had so I grabbed a new set that needed to see some ink – You’re So Lovely.  In retrospect I wish I had chosen Daffodil Delight over Crushed Curry but that’s okay, it’s still pretty.  I just think Daffodil would have been a little brighter.

I used a sponge dauber and inked some Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper to make my pretty yellow flower.  It needed that extra bling.

Check out the gold metallic thread on this card?  It really gave it the texture it needed.

I am looking forward to a couple of days off from rehearsal.  I plan to sleep… and stamp…. and clean the garage.  It’s going to be 68° this weekend so I won’t freeze to death if I go out there.  We have REALLY let the garage get out of hand so I want to spend today getting it all cleaned up.  I know…. you all wish your weekend could be as exciting as mine.  lol

I  hope you guys have a great weekend!  Be sure to come back Monday!  I have something BRAND NEW waiting for you!!!

Mediterranean Achievers Blog Hop – All You Need is Love!

Mediterranean Achievers Blog Hop - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com - October 28, 2015

Hey my sweet stampin’ peeps!  Welcome to another Mediterranean Achievers Blog Hop!  Our theme this month is All you Need is Love and yep, love is in the air for sure!

I have a confession to make.  I have a girl crush on Little Debbie.  I just love her SO MUCH!  She’s a good friend in my time of need…. my sweet tooth’s time of need, really.

Can You Feel the Love - Mediterranean Blog Hop - January 27, 2016 - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com

If you are from the USA, you probably know Little Debbie quite well.  If you aren’t familiar with her, well, her snack cakes are the BEST thing on the planet!  I could eat the whole box in one sitting.  I might have even done that before… but I won’t admit to it.

For our Hop this month, I wanted to make a Valentine Treat box with a scrumptious heart shaped treat inside. (Yes, I ate the one that I opened for the photo!)

All you Need is Love - Mediterranean Blog Hop - January 27, 2016 - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com

All you Need is Love - Mediterranean Blog Hop - January 27, 2016 - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com

I used the Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper Stack.  One sheet and I was able to decorate the entire box.  The Bloomin’ Love stamp set let me create a lovely little banner.  The Sweetheart punch and the Blushing Bride Glimmer paper were the perfect addition!

All you Need is Love - Mediterranean Blog Hop - January 27, 2016 - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com All you Need is Love - Mediterranean Blog Hop - January 27, 2016 - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com

The box was so easy to create!

  • Pink Pirouette cardstock – 4 ¼” x 7″ – scored at 1″ on all sides
  • Rose Red cardstock – 3 ¾” x 6 ½” – scored at ¾” on all sides with Box Shim in place

(If you are not familiar with the Box Shim, it’s a tool that clips on the side of your Simply Scored board to help make box and lids that fit perfectly.  See the video by CLICKING HERE)

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you enjoy the rest of the HOP!  Remember, if you are on a mobile device, go to SimplySimpleStamping.com to view the full list of participants of the blog hop.
