It's a Singer Craft Sewing Machine. So now I can do those neat stitches that you see on all the cards now. It allows you to do 8 or 9 different types of stitching. I've tried it out a cuple of times on scrap paper and it looks so cute. Except for the crookedness. I have to get use to it. Of course I will post my first project.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to me! Yes it's my birthday. And yes I'm at work. This is the first time in about 8 years that I have worked on my birthday. I guess I shouldn't complain, it's not busy, my bosses are not here, and I'm surfing the web. LOL
I'll be heading over to my girlfriend's house later on this evening. She has a tradition where she invites her family over for lasagna and pre-Christmas fun. So since my family is not geting together this year on Christmas Eve like we normally do, I'll visit with her family. I'm sure my kids will love it, especially since our kids are the best of buddies. And our husbands are real good friends also so they'll have plenty to talk about.
Well a MERY CHRISTMAS to you all!!!

This is for Mrs. Schreiber, my 5th grader's teacher
Both sets I used retired DSP which I still love. I hate that I am running out. And I decorated a plain white gift bag that I bought from the dollar store. I was also able to do an altered paperclip for both teachers but was unable to get a picture last night because I didn't want to disturb them while they were drying and I didn't have time this morning before school to take a picture.
I guess this is a lesson learned about not waiting until the last minute. We'll see if I have actually learned this lesson for next year. LOL Oh, I won't have to wait that long, there is Valentine's Day and End-Of-The-Year gifts that I need to plan way ahead of time.

By doing some blog stalking this afternoon, I found out that two of my best "card inspirationers" (my own made-up term) are a part of a new design team called "Jazzy Inspirations". Teresa Payne-Neal, check out her blog here and Jackie Bowman, check out her blog here are excellent at what they do. These are two blogs I would definitely suggest you check out on a regular basis. Now since I was directed to Jazzy Inspirations I had to come up with my own take of their first challenge. So I'm off to do my first challenge. I'll post my creation a little later.

First, you can read a little about what exactly is Splitcoastampers on right column of my blog. There I have category for Splitcoaststampers.
Second, I am signed for a couple of different fun swaps on SCS. I am in a 4-month (Sep.-Dec.) swap that consist of 4 groups of 4. Each person takes a turn being the hostess for a month. Since I signed up for 2 groups I am the hostess for October and December. Well, as hostess you send the other 3 ladies a kit of the same stuff to make enough cards for 4 people. Each person uses their creativity and comes up with 4 of the same cards and send it out to the other 3 people in their group. It's really nice to see how different the cards are using the same materials. And I am in a Christmas Swap. I made 6 cards and send them to the hostess and she randomly sends back 5 different cards that other people did. The extra card is always for the hostess.
And here is the card I sent to my Lil Sis. I think I had some bad lighting on that one. I'll try to take another picture and reload.
