Do you remember last fall when the pie boxes were in the Occasions catalog?  I remember saying then I hoped SU! would have a framelit for that box in the next catalog.  Ta Da!  Didn’t know I had so much influence…

This kit was a favorite when I first saw it and couldn’t wait to grab an afternoon to make it.  Got everything done and out of the way so I had the whole afternoon to play with this kit.  Then guess what?  I forgot to order the corresponding stamp set!  I couldn’t believe it…turned everything upside down looking for it then went back and checked the order and packing sheets.  Duh…I didn’t order it.

So I improvised…If you have made this cake, you probably would know the stamp images were different.  But, honestly, I’m pretty pumped that I problem solved and came up with substitutes from my vast stash.  My next order will have the set on it because I can see making these boxes for many celebrations.  Since there are excellent directions included in the kit, you won’t need my Stuff ‘N Digits today.

Look how my little Minion family has grown…

Sweetums surprised me and had two on the dashboard of my car!  Here’s something funny…Zoe my little Jack Russell has a barking problem when the UPS truck, mail truck or any other truck goes past the house.  When she starts barking and generally throwing a fit…all of the Minions start talking at the same time!  She immediately stops to look at them.  Heaven!  She would love to get one of them and destroy it…I will be on guard always.

Here’s your “B-ism” today…

Oh lordy…I’m killing myself with humor today…

Let’s get inky and…Be HaPpY!

A Slice of Life…

We are enjoying a beautiful fall now that the rain has finally stopped and today was a great day for a convertible ride with the fur babies…

And…we are ready for Halloween.  These pumpkins I think are three or four years old when SU! offered this Halloween decoration.  An oldie but goodie…not me!  the pumpkins.  And I’m holding Willis (who will not look at a camera) and Miss Zoe.  They have been all bathed up and are ready for a ride.  I should have gotten the doors behind me in the shot because the Halloween beaded spider wreaths are up too!

But here is my project to show you today.  Do you get Paper Pumpkin?  Yes…well I know you were excited this month.  And if you don’t…what are you waiting for?  Click on the Paper Pumpkin picture on the right side of this blog and get going.  You don’t want to miss another month.  They are simply terrific.  Here is October’s Paper Pumpkin…

Is that adorable?  I plan to place little goodies in each slice and use them at my Thanksgiving table.  Here’s what I’m hoping…that SU! will offer a die to cut these pie slice boxes in the SAB catalog the first of the year.  Nobody has said a word to me, but boy! would I love that.  Can’t you just see this at showers, birthdays and Christmas?  I’m keeping my fingers crossed for that wish.

I hope you are enjoying some beautiful fall weather wherever you are too.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…”When I told you I was normal, I may have slightly exaggerated.”

I’m smiling…slightly my foot!  I’m inky…and HaPpY!
