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...

Back in the saddle...well, mostly

I'm feeling a lot better following my flu experience - and thank you to everyone for your kind words!

My voice studio is having its Spring recital this Friday and so I've made some little gifts for my students and also the accompanist. Nothing too fancy, but chocolate wrapped up in cute packaging would always do it for me! I got the idea here on splitcoaststampers and thought it would be a fun yet easy way to package the goodies.

I'll be filling the inside with some turquoise paper to surround the wrapped chocolate. I like the extra "bling" on the front too!

Thanks for looking!

Down, but not out...

Hello, Everyone!

To say I've been missing from the boards as of late I know is an understatement. I've come down with *ta-dah*: the flu - but, as I don't appear to be squeeling or snorting or desiring to roll in the mud, my doctor's have told me they don't think it's the swine one! What a relief...just the desire to have a truffle or two was beginning to make me a little nervous...

Anyhoo - I've been unable to post OR comment as sitting upright for more than 10 minutes or so doesn't always fare too well. On top of the low-energy and aches, I've also developed a stinker of a cough and my lower right ribcage SCREAMS at me whenever I cough or sneeze. Laying down is best, but with my 3 little ones I can't completely vegge out.

I just wanted to let everyone in the fabulous "Surfin' 11" group know that I know I've been remiss, but promise to get something up and more importantly go and visit all of your wonderful and inspiring blogs very soon (I think I'm on blog withdrawal anyway!)

Sending best wishes to all of you out there in cyber-land and here's hoping you stay clear of any bug-a-roos in your homes!
