Thank you, CHF!!

Sadly, I have learned that one of my first and favorite stamp companies OF ALL TIME is shutting it's doors (at least for the Pomeroy family, the business is for sale). Cornish Heritage Farms has continually blessed me as a company and as a family! The Pomeroys have shared their lives with those who followed their farm and family blog. We have been through their adventures raising an ever growing family on a Montana Farm. We have voted for names for the newborn animals, guessed at how many goose/chicken/duck eggs would hatch successfully, and shared the joys and heartaches  of raising teenagers and babies!  Their company has shown EXCELLENCE in their images, their customer service and, goodness sakes, their faithful and FAST shipping!! But alas, they are moving their farm and decided that the stamping chapter of their lives is done.....AND WE ARE SO SAD
But all things change and we must change with them. God has a plan for us all and I am proud of this family for seeking His face and following what they feel God is leading them to do next. So really this is a GOOD thing and I wish them all the best in their new venture. To bless us, they have begun to discount their stamps and stuff, now at 20-40% off. Their images are--bar none--the best of their kind. Keep checking in...I'm hoping their Thomas Kinkade line will show up on the sale shelf soon...til then I will leave you will a few CHF cards and project (above) I'd done with some of my favorite images of theirs...aren't they just SO GREAT??

They ROCK! Congratulations CHF! We will miss you!

Babies everywhere!

There seems to be babies being born at a wonderful rate all around me! I love it! I sit in church waiting to begin our preschool ministry class and look around at all the moms and dads holding their little ones :) I think we shall be busy in the 3 and 4 year old room for years to come, it seems!! :) I love babies!!

My friend has asked me to make a few of my 6x6 albums for some special events in her family. I thought I'd share a few of my favorite images from the baby book. Keep in mind that these are scrapbooks waiting to happen. I don't deal with the pictures (thankfully...the pressure would be too much! lol!) but I create the background. Most pages have some kind of stamped image or sentiment, but not all! Each book takes between 10-15 hours to complete (slow creative process!), so it is a labor of love to be sure ;) I don't really scrapbook, but whenI consider these pages as twenty cardfronts, life is good!

How fun are these? Once I "deliver" the next one--haha, I'll post pictures :)
Thanks for stopping in!
