WOW, it felt like an eternity.......

First and foremost, let me just say that there are some of you out there and you know who you are, that have kept in contact with me, even it was a little hello , thinking of you and what not.
I am soo very much appreciative of your well wishes.
Ok a little update, my under arm surgery is now almost fully recovered, except for a small
small hole that needs to close, the scar I have on my left underarm is horrendous
it looks like spider legs almost, but anywho, I got that out of the way, hopefully it will not
return so that I dont have to go through all the pain I did.
I would like to get back into the swing of things, but its going to be a while because
now I have to get ready for whatever comes my way with my
Cervical Cancer. Its a huge mess, they cannot seem to find what the problem is, but i am
confident that the oncologist will pinpoint whats wrong.....
Well here is a little update on what I am going to be doing.
I know some of you mentioned about the PHAT Stamps, that will be in the works
and I am going to be having some scrubbers and rubber stamp cleaners.
I wanted to take a poll, on whether to do red rubber stamps, acrylic stamps or DIGI Stamps.
What would you like to see?
Also, Im going to be posting up here and on ebay, some stamps, paper, embelishments, etc......etc.......for sale, simply because I am going to be focusing on my line and
I need to make room for the products that I will be bringing in,
mainly ribbons, and some embellishments, papers, etc...etc....
so please be on the look out for that, I have entirely too much
stuff and not enough time to make cards, I will me getting rid
of alot of stuff and at a great deal, maybe some sets will be made, i just have to figure out
how I am going to make the sets.
Just a little heads up so be on the look out

May 19, 2008

Im here and Im alive....and blog candy.....

I will hopefully God willing be back in to full swing next week. I am taking longer to recouperate because of the area that its in.... I may take up to another month or so......

As for my other health issues, I went for my follow up pap and it doesnt look good, I will have to go speak with an oncologist to discuss options and treatments that can be done, before this becomes full blown cancer. Am I scared, yes. Will I get through this? I sure hope so. With the support of my immediate family, I am sure things will go more smoothly, but who am I kidding, we are women, we were meant to have lots of stress and come out on top, right...

So with that said, Heidi
has the most cutest images over there, I think there swedish or
something, could not make out the language but I think thats right......
have a lookey and have some fun.....

I will be doing some cards later on tonight, and I'll post them up here.

So someone asked me where are my latest cards....

Lol, I have been so crazy busy these weeks that I have not been able to create anything new, but I did promise some pics of the images that I was RAK'd, I have been rak'd with some cool cards and images..

I do have a card that I made for my girlfriends son's Birthday. He turned 10 years old on Good Friday and I did this card for him from the Images that Heather Huggins sent me.

Heather thank you once again, I finally packed up your goodies and have them ready to ship out to you. Lastel your package went out too, Please let me know when it arrives.

Ok so here is the card I created for Michael. Only thing is that I do not know the name of the stamped image that I used. But I will name this one Skater Boy......like Avril Lavigne, lol..(edited to change color of text)

Anyway Here it goes......

I used the Rockstar paper from DCWV, colored pencils, some prisma and some just regular color pencils, On the skateboard I used Stickles, (cannot recall the name put its obviously orangey) and its a Tri-Fold Card. Oh yea and I gave it a look as if it was outside somewhere and traced the image itself with the sky blue marker from Martha Stewart, I love that blue color.

Well There you have it, let me go on and get my other posts ready....

Apr 4, 2008

This is what you have been waiting for................

This is what you have been waiting for.......
April's Featured Artist
is none other than our very own
Cutey Patootey
Emily.....Stamping Bella

I am sooooo happy to bring this Exclusive Interview to you....

I know you cannot wait for it either soo with out further a do, Here is

Em The Stamping Bella

1. Why the name Stamping Bellas?

>>hmmm good question. Well the company started out as “Emmyz” because everyone called me “emmy” or Em but it wasn’t so catchy and a little “narcissistic” LOL.. so then when my first bella was created I looked at her and said.. OMG SHE IS SUCH A BEAUTIFUL BELLA (beautiful in Italian and no I am not Italian..LOL)! Then the search for a website name came and was found and the rest is history!

2. What other designer or company would you like to work with?
I work with many artists and suppliers.. I have 5 artists I work quite closely with and have created very tight relationships with them. There is no one in particular I strive to meet or work with.. people enter my life on a daily basis and I believe for a reason. I have met many many wonderful “sistahs” on this journey and I plan to meet many more J. With artists or companies I work with, we just for some reason find eachother. It is soo wonderful.
3. Which Bella was your very first creation?
My Bridalpartybellas.. they were my FIRST FIRST FIRST creation and they will forever mean the world to me.

4. Did you ever think that your idea would sky rocket the way that it has?
ABSOLUTELY NOT. I had no confidence, I felt like I had no place in the stamping world..,
I just wanted to bring my hobby to the next level and share the artwork with the people
around me. My most important idea in this adventure was the SISTAHOOD..
THAT sistahood and me being so deeply involved and “out there” was my intention..
more than sales.. to say that I have “met “ people from all over the world
who share my passion?? How CRAZY is that? To have been able to create a
venue where other people meet and become true friends?
Could you beat that??? So even if the business
fails, I will ALWAYS be thankful for this experience.. FOREVAH!

5. If you could say, what are some other plans that your thinking of coming out with?

Now WHYYYYY would I do that? *winks*… All I can say is that I have a PHENOM line of embellishments coming.. something NOT to be believed.. trust me. (ever hear me say that before?)
6. When is your Birthday?
June 25th 1972. I now expect a birthday card from EACH and EVERY one of you J
7. If you could pick a fruit to eat right now at this minute, what would that be and why?
Chocolate covered STRAWBERRY. That’s a fruit no?

8. What is your favorite food recipe and would you mind sharing that with me and our readers?
Hmmmmm… I honestly love everything.. I don’t really have a favorite recipe…
9. What is your all time favorite Elvis song, if there is one? Lol….
Hmmmm you know the one that starts the show “LAS VEGAS?”.. a little bit something.. (oh am I ignorant)..LOL. Is that even ELVIS?? OMG
10. Ok I ask all my featured artist this question and some of us may know but there are many who don’t like me, What is your favorite drink? Cosmos (lol), Tini’s wines?
I honestly don’t drink… I have other vices..LOL. If I HAD to choose, it would be red wine.
11. You had a little snafu with a little button that sent out lots of $$$$$ as Gift Certificates, you mentioned that you would honor your mistake, could you roughly state how much that set you back?
I didn’t do the final “tally” but it had a potential loss of approximately $ 70,000 but all is ok J
12. I know a lot of the ladies in the group did not want to take you up on the offer for fear that it would hurt you financially, What would you like to tell the ladies who decided not to take the G.C.?
I thank them from the BOTTOM of my heart and appreciate their thoughts and actions ,you have no idea. BUT by the same token, I cannot “blame” anyone who used it as I did honor it

And there you have it, Isn't she like the most coolest person, I had
lots of fun doing this and most of all I got to share it with you. Thank you for reading, Em thank you for the interview and I do hope to work with
you in the near future...... Thank you again and Readers I do hope enjoy...
See ya later.....

Whewwwwww There is alot going on around here today!

Hey there its been crazy around here this week with the start of
the new quarter at college, the kids returning to school from spring break,
Pageants, Rehearsals, you name it, it was done this week. Not to mention all the cooking and cleaning, etc. etc....
Well lets see we have a lot of interesting things to post today.....
I wanted to say thank you to the Stamp Crazy Group
I was Queen of the Group last week.
Incase your wondering what that is, the girls in the group decided
that all the girls in the group would be Queen for the Week, so names are picked
every week for that respective week and the name chosen gets to be
the "Queen". The other ladies from the group get to send out images to the one picked. So I was chosen last week and I had no idea, lol.
I received a TAC catalog and some images from Danni, Bere sent me a stack of Bellas, I think there is one of each bella in there, lol . Gracias Chica,
Im sorry but there were a few others that sent me some images, but
I am not at home right now, so I cant look at the envies to give them there due
credit. I also got lots of buttons,I cannot wait to get some cards done,
But please for any of you that sent me images,
Well ladies I loved my images that I got and I thank you from the
bottom of my heart. I am very grateful . ok so on to the next post.

country, her designs are to DYE for, lol....
Julie take a bow, I so do envy you cause you have great ideas
a great home and a great everything, lol.. I faithfully read your postings everyday
Thank you for all you show us.

Todays the Day!

Well last week's appt for my daughter got cancelled because the doctor had to leave because her lil girl got really sick. So the appt was switched to today,
so we will be asking all sorts of questions regarding her boob and if there is any
relation to this "NEW to me" IBF Cancer. I am hoping and praying that her situation
is just that of having one bigger than the other, because then we can live with that,
for it to be anything else, whewwwww that will definitely put a damper on things.
But I have to be strong and think positive because
we dont want to jump the gun on anything.
Thanks for all your prayers and well wishes, I will post about the visit to the doctors
later on in the day.
Lastel if your reading this, please check your email I responded. Sorry I took so long..

Mar 23, 2008

Happy Easter to all my readers!!!

Lets remember to keep HIM in our Hearts and in our Prayers,
for he is the Reason that we are all here!!!!!!!

and your family be kept safe!

Hoppy Sightingss.........

ok here is my creation of the day
I used Melanie's "Just so Hoppy" set,
I saw the chick and thought back to when my mom
took us to Puerto Rico one Easter, and I was sooo excited

to see that the little chicks were different colors,

they had pinks, purple, blues and of course yellow.
So I colored my little chickee pink and I added some pink stickles
to the Chickee and now she looks like the little peeps with sugar coating and all...........

There you have it , hope you all enjoy it.....
