You are...How Old?

Here, kitty, kitty...Somebody is in her mid-thirties!
Oh, yeah! THAT would be me.
On a beautiful autumn morning, 35 years ago today,
I made my debut on planet earth,
(I love you Mom!)

I feel blessed, lucky and loved!

For this and so much more,
I'm thankful...everyday.


Thirty five is a very attractive age;
London society is full of women who have of their own free choice remained thirty-five for years.

Latest Pages

After sometime of not uploading pages to my gallery, I posted these late last night. These are my latest creations for my family scrapbooks. And, as I mentioned there, I'm trying a new thing, which is not to scrapbook chronologically. Instead, creating by the pictures that inspire me...HOWEVER, I'm still keeping my books by year. Once a page is completed it goes in the book by event rather than by date. Now, my daughter's scrapbook is quickly becoming non-chronological...and you won't believe how many more pages get done this way! Even if this whole new "concept" sends my mind into shock and creates havoc in the world of a scrapbook neat freak...I'm OK...really...it is quite liberating...I'm OK... ;)

If you'd like to see the rest of my pages go here.

Friday 10.10.08 Sneaky Peaky

Howdy! Here's the first sneaky peaky of the weekend... What is it? It is something you can give as a gift to a friend, co-worker, family member or my favorite...to a teacher.
If you'd like to see more of it go here
I have a few more in the works and will list them this weekend. Also, I'll be posting some of my latest pages to my gallery, if you'd like to take a look go here. Hope you all have a wonderful time. I'm babysitting Mr.Colton (5 years old). So, I'd better go...Kelly and Colton together are...trouble.

I'm still here...I'm working on the last custom order for this week. One is going out of town and the other is for a local shop.

On the other hand I'm feeling a little under the weather, so I'll take a day or so to get over this.
Other than that, all is well. I have pictures from this weekend that I'd like to share. My husband 's 40th and some other random shots from around the house and new creations.

Now, I gotta run...

Custom Order * Scottie Christmas*

Here they are once again, Lady Nora & Sir Angus...this time all decked up to wish all of their furry friends a Merry Christmas.
This card front will go on heavy white cardstock, the patterned paper is accented with glitter as well as the poinsettias, the title is hand-stamped matted and mounted on foam for dimension (not shown), the mini ornament has both of their names. The Christmas theme is carried on the inside as well as on the outside with the matching envelope. I'm pleased with the results, they look adorable!

National Cardmaking Day!

Happy Cardmaking Day Everyone!
These past few days, I've been quite busy working on Custom Orders and today, I celebrate this special day in the best way that it could be celebrated...Making Cards! Yeepeee!

Here is a picture of my little Princess Scrapbooking in our studio while Mommy works on cards. She scrapbooks in 6x6 format, later I'll share some of her layouts here and in the gallery. She is very talented!

And, just in case you're wondering...There will be new listings up in the next couple of days...more calendars, cards and two new gift ideas. So, stay tunned.

Happy Weekend!

My Studio

Hi! This post is in reply to the those who've asked about my scrap area...
And here you have it. This is my new studio at our new place. It is my little piece of heaven. I love working and creating from cards to my own scrapbooking pages. It is twice the size of what I had before and it keeps growing.... Everyday I'm thankful for this room, because not only am I able to create pages for my scrapbooks -Which will one day be passed to my daughter and her children- but I am able to work from home, be here for my family and contribute to it from the sales of my paper piecings.
So, it is only fair to thank my family and my wonderful retuning and new clients for all of your support in making Ana's Handmade Cards possible. THANK YOU!
