I Absolutely LOVE a Challenge…

Challenges are my specialty, I won’t sleep until I have a solution

Right now I have insomnia, lol, because I am trying to get my schedule organised

My schedule is crazy:

M-F 6:30 am I get my 2 yr. old niece Danyelle

M-F 6:30 am to 9:30 am we nap (or she is a blubbering mess, me too!)

Monday my studio is closed so we do housework, laundry and a movie and popcorn

Tuesday through Friday my studio is open from 1:00 pm to 7:00 pm

So from 9:30 am to 11:00 am we have breakfast, take out the dogs and maybe get a bath

From 11:00 am to 12:00 pm we get lunch prepared to take with us and for Jerrah to have at work

from 12:15 pm until my studio closes I am there, Danyelle’s mommy gets there around 2:30

After Danyelle leaves I can really focus on projects and my blog

Then on alternating Thursdays and Fridays I work over-nite at the hotel (pays for my studio)

Saturday I get to catch up on missed sleep and then to the studio

Sunday is a rest day (HAHA) I usually spend this on the parents farm working

So I decided since I couldn’t find a planner that fit me I would make one

I have this amazing program called My Digital Studio (MDS)

Well here was the challenge…

I want my designs to print all the way to the edge of an 8 1/2″ X 11″ piece of cardstock

MDS will not do that because it is designed for professional printing and has a built in bleed area

I searched the internet for solutions (always my first step) not much there

I changed my printer setting with no luck MDS overwrites this

Finally I figured it out…

I saved the project as a JPEG to my computer

reopened the project in Microsoft office 2010 and printed it as one 8 1/2″ X 11″ picture PERFECT

Completely borderless no white at all!!!

I am so happy that now I will design my perfect planner (I will share when its done)

It was such a simple solution that frustrated me completely

PLEASE if you have any suggestions for organizing my various life projects and menial tasks please let me know

I am a complete dork and love lists so throw me all your ideas!!!!

I Love New Beginnings!

I have to laugh because in November I posted that I was coming back to blogging

Well, things happen and boy did they happen to me

I outgrew my little house, for those that don’t know my house is 480 sq. feet

I was able to rent a converted hotel room at a reduced rate

I turned this into my studio and was inundated with questions like:

“When will you open?”

“Are you going to have classes?”

and my favorite…

“Can I just come hang out and craft?”

Well I have to say this was just suppose to be my personal studio

However, things change and I now have a studio that is open to the public five days a week

I have had to do some major juggling of my schedule but I am happy to say I am proud of my little Studio

Here are some pictures of Stamping the Moon Studio:

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

As you can see from the slideshow there are a lot of different areas

The kids area was designed for my niece Danyelle whom I watch everyday while her mommy is working

I have an entire table for my die cut center and two tables for crafting

The gondola has some items for display and some items for sale

I also carry some supplies like adhesives

The scarves you see in the slideshow are on consignment from a friend of the family

I would really love to hear what you think of my little studio, please leave a comment below

I Love My Job!

I love my job because I can be as flexible as I need to be

Yesterday a friend called in a panic, she was moving and the rental company messed up her order

Now she didn’t have a truck to move her big stuff and she had to be out that day

Because my job is flexible and I have a truck I was able to help her

Everyone else had to work a non flexible job

She lives an hour and a half away so the move took my entire day

I felt lucky though to have a job where I could drop what I was doing to help a friend

Luckily too, Mojo Monday goes on all week

I will get my take on Mojo Monday posted before the Sunday deadline

I am also gearing up for the Summer Splash Craft Fair, here in Imperial, NE on Saturday June 22nd

I have been super busy making things I can sell

Pictures will be coming as soon as I am done

I will also be posting a recap of the event after the show is over

I hope you stay tuned, there will be lots to see in a few days

I am blessed to have a friend and fellow Demonstrator coming to help me

I think I would be even more behind without her help

I also feel sorry for my poor house, it has been so neglected with all the crafting I have been doing

No matter I am doing what I love Crafting!!!

Hey, if you have any tips for making craft shows better please let me know

you can comment below or contact me directly

Thank you for hanging with me

Have a Stamping Great Day!

12 Ways to Save 15%…

Today I want to talk about bundles

Bundles save you 15% off the individual pieces

They are perfectly paired to get you creating instantly


Well I haven’t seen a bundle I didn’t like

I will be honest, when I placed my last order I messed up

I ordered two items that were in a bundle but because I was not paying attention I missed out on the 15% savings

To get the savings you have to use the bundle code not the individual codes

SO I am posting all of the bundles in the new Annual Catalog here

That way you have the right codes so you don’t miss out on 15% savings!!!

These are listed in the order you will find them in the catalog

All page references are for the new Annual Catalog (Link on the right)
