Convention Gifts

This year I made Convention gifts for everyone in our group. These are post-it note holders and are super easy to make!

Score a 6 3/4" x 3 1/4" piece of card stock at 3 1/4" and 3 1/2". Peel off back page of post it notes and adhere to the inside. I used Snail adhesive to really hold it in place. Embellish as desired. Easy-peasy!!!

Four Generations

We were blessed to have all of our children and grandchildren home for Christmas last year. We are also blessed to have three of our four parents still with us! We took the opportunity to have new family portraits taken (by photographer and friend, Rob Matheson, owner of A Splendid Memory, Allen Park, MI). This photo is of my mother, me, three daughters and five grandaughters! The new designer paper, Paisley Petals made making this 8" x 8" page a snap! It's hard to see but I put some of the Bitty Buttons on a couple of the punched hearts at the bottom of the page.
