Editor's Note

I apologize for the way my layout was cutting off the sides of the bigger photos. I didn't realize that was happening until today. Is it happening for all of you when you view my blog? Also, any of you bloggers have any suggestions as to why the templates with borders are creating such a HUGE border cutting things off? In the meantime, I've changed to a template I don't really like, but that at least let's you see the whole picture. Any suggestions from you more experienced bloggers would be welcome!

Stampin Up Take 2!

As you may recall, a few months ago I spent a day stamping. This past weekend while the guys were away at drill us girls (and a few others) had another Stampin Up demonstration party. Here are the results of my hours of hard labor:

Not too shabby, huh? By the way, I cannot tell you how excited I am that there is now a Picasa for Macs so I can make cool collages too. You can bet you'll be seeing a lot more of them from now on. Anyway, back to stamping. This time, I was suckered into spending too much of my hard earned money. Hopefully my purchases will come soon while I'm still excited about this craft I can make all sorts of cool cards, which you will all be lucky recipients of some day.

Home Decor

So here are a few pics of some recent home decor additions (one more temporary and one permanent). During tulip festival in Albany this past May Marcus and purchased this centerpiece thing that you could stick flowers in the middle of. . . I don't know what it's called. We keep it on our table all the time, but it wasn't until a Super Bowl Party two days after Marcus gave me flowers that I was able to really try it out:

Pretty cool huh? Now I just need a reason/opportunity to use it more often.

Also, Marcus and I were discussing how we need to hang more pictures on our walls. We decided to print out 8x10s of pictures we'd taken on our various adventures this past year or so and frame them. We printed out 7 altogether, but since frames can get a but pricey have only hung 3. Here they are:

Isn't that pretty? I like having pictures of places we've actually been and taken ourselves up instead of just generic pics. Oh, and a big hearty congrats to the person who can name all 3 of places pictures. I even gave you a big thumbnail to see better. 2 out of 3 are very easy. . . actually they're all pretty easy. Anyway, happy home decorating!
