Things We Love...

What a fun two years it has been with the rubber from Paper Makeup Stamps! For today's hop, each designer invited one stamping buddy to join us in showcasing "The Things We Love!"

Where to start??  So...

I really enjoy receiving mail...packages, letters...magazines...blog candy...thoughtful treats.



Last month's release produced a delightful Makeup Kit complete with some gorgeous papers. I used these patterned papers and Bazzill papers for today's projects.  Feel free to send me mail so this mini mail box doesn't stay empty!  (Of course 2 of my kids want their own mailboxes now!!)

I also love tucking ATCs into my kids' lunches. It's been a month or so since I've done that so I need to start up again. Paper Makeup has grown so much over these last two years.  There are so many stamp lines to choose!



 





Others lines:  Animals, Dustin's Dinos, Moodys, and every so many Quotes and Sentiments!  There is something for everyone, isn't there.

Since, I have 3 kids...these were all done in triplicate!  What fun ideas do you have for your valentine?





My buddy is Jenn C of Jax Bean Stalks. She's really fun to chat with on the phone and we enjoy paper crafting and blogging.

(Again...why can't we live closer to each other? Do I need to post a personal want ad? 

"Crafting Friend Wanted. Must be within 7 miles of me. Must be easy to chat with and generous."

All my stamping buddies are in the computer these days.)

Be sure to check out Jenn's creation (which she is keeping secret from me), along with the creations from the rest of the Paper Makeup Artists and their buddies.  We hope to see you at tonight's party at 7pm (EST) in the PMS forum.  Oh, if you want to be in the running for thsi month's prize, be sure to comment on all the blogs (list below), as well as the Paper Makeup Blog.
