Definition of STAMPIN' MOXIE:
Using your personal energy, ideas, likes and loves to express yourself through the medium of stamping and crafting.
What's YOUR Stampin' Moxie style?
I believe we all have our own moxie. We each have a tune with which we march throughout our lives. Our moxie can change, too, as we change and grow through personal experiences and by witnessing the changes around us.
Part of the beauty of our moxie is being able to share it with one another. I enjoy sharing my moxie through crafting and have found that I can share a little something of me through the various projects I create. My desire is to share something I enjoy with others and allow them the opportunity to bring their own moxie out through crafting. Is your stampin' moxie style defined? Is it "vintage"? Is it "whimsical"? Is it something in-between or all of the above? Find out YOUR Stampin' Moxie style! Then, share with others...

And here's mine:
I thought I could get to this challenge a lot faster than I did - but my hubby ended up requesting my help with a banquet he was putting together for our church. He realized about a week and a half before it was to happen that he really hadn't spent time thinking about the entertainment. So, what's a guy to do? Well, ask your wife - particularly if she was a vocal major in college! :) He wanted a Broadway themed night and asked if I'd be willing to put together a 30-40 minute program - so that ended up taking A LOT of my focus over the past week and a half! Add to that the fact that my almost 2 year old has not been sleeping well (more teeth) and I was just praying to stay healthy enough to pull the whole thing off. Thankfully, I did - and the banquet was for the most part a success and I was very happy for him. I even had a friend there who happened to have a new digital video camera who recorded the whole performance and who was willing to put it on a disk for me - so maybe if I'm daring I'll put some of it here - since one of the "S's" in my title does refer to singing! Well see...
As far as this challenge, I didn't think I'd have as hard a time coming up with something, but then again, I realized that I hadn't taken my dry embossing stuff out for YEARS! I only have 3 of the SU little templates (and they are all retired!) That made it even a little more of a challenge since I just couldn't come up with a great idea. Then I remembered that I had made these little gift-card holders the week before (one was for my nephew's birthday.) I got the idea for the gift-card holder from Dawn Griffith over at "Dawn's Stamping Studio" and I just had to try it out! Today, I realized that my "Love without End" dry embossing template would work well with the circles on the DSP from the SS Kit "Party Pieces" (also retired - but hey, I'm using it up!) Anyhoo - here's another photo of the embossed one along with another one I did (no dry embossing):
Ok, sorry for such a loooooooong post! Thanks for looking!

Ok, so here are a couple of items that I worked on for Valentines: The first two pictures are of an item that I worked on along with my SIL via our VSN. I'm not sure if she learned this from someone she crafts with in CO or came up with it herself. Regardless, it was a fun effort and my son's teacher enjoyed getting it with her Valentines mailbox. (In case the picture isn't very clear, it just spells out Happy Valentines.)
The second item is the card I gave to my hubby on Valentines. I saw a thread on SCS entitled "suggestive sentiments" and had a few good laughs at many of the suggestions given. Lots of great ones! I decided to try my 'Favorite Teddy Bear' set from SU and create a little something special for my "honey".
