Chez Geek

Just sharing a view of some bookcase decorations... I posed these little action figures and fall scenery before Halloween for seasonal decor, but I've kept them up through November too... Pretty sure they'll be replaced entirely for Christmas as while I can "pretend" orcs and LOTR heroes can come together for a lovely Thanksgiving meal, putting that ensemble together for Christmas just feels... wrong... hee hee....

Just a view from "Chez Geek" - a/k/a home...
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Happy Thanksgiving

So late last night I realized I forgot to prepare my Thanksgiving cards!  This meant crunch time.  I don't like rushing things, but that often makes for some fun speed crafting, so away I went to comb through my stash to see what to use this year.  Happily, found that the curvy frame stamp from Everything More  and Happy Thanksgiving sentiment from Unity Stamp Company fit beautifully!  Had this retired Stampin' Up! paper "saved" for this time of year, so some quick cutting, a little fussy cutting, and done and done!

I'm updating my post to share with my other Unity Stamp Co. pals with Friends with Flair.  I'm so grateful to get to see all the wonderful cards they create.

Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday next week!  Like the card says, I wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving!

HEY! UPDATED to share I was honored to get a random prize with my entry at Unity! MORE things to be thankful for, LOVE that!

Great Love

A quick fall post today...
Had an opportunity to make a series of encouragement cards for a friend and picked out one of my favorites to share with you.  Don't you love it when the simplest of cards becomes a favorite?  Some days I can spend hours trying to come up with something I like, then there are days when I realize keeping things simple is often the best.  

A Unity Stamp Company sentiment was all I needed to stamp & color, then cut out with a Spellbinders die.  I sponged the edges a bit, and layered on some pretty patterned paper (paper from FarmHouse I believe) and embellished with some Stampin' Up! crochet lace ribbon.  

Hope you are having a fabulous weekend!  Until next time, happy crafting!

Love my craft buddy!
