Happy Friday - and CONGRATS!!!

Whoo Hooo.... it's Friday!!! And I only have a moment to get on here this morning! I am trying to get all my orders completed and out the door, I am trying to get packed and I am trying to get my husband home from work in time so we can leave and make it to our destination on time.... Wheeewwwww.... it is only 8:46 AM and I am ALREADY tired!!!!

Thank you allllll sooooo very much for entering the contest/quiz yesterday!!! I had a ton of responses and I am sooo sorry I didn't get back last night to post them and tell you who won....


The first three people who correctly answered that my "Three favorite glues" are Herma, zig and xryon were"

Karen aka Scrappinmama
Diane aka grandmastoy

Whoo hooooo!!! Now I know all three of these wonderful ladies have cutter machines so they get to pick a Beloved Keepsakes Cutter File as their prize!!!! (Just email me and let me know which one you would like!!) Congrats!!!!

Now - I only got a few comments yesterday on the actual products that I was thinking about carrying in the Beloved Keepsakes Scrapbooking Store.... seems that the komfy cushion is a favorite - but what colors do you guys prefer??? (I know for sure I will be carrying those!) And then for the person who asked me if I was going to sell the 12x12 laser trimmer... I am not sure... I have to see if I can get a retail account with them.. but I am working on it!!!

So - does anyone else have any yes's or no way's for the products I listed yesterday? I mean I know what I like - but does that mean you like it too???

Ok - enough babbling - I got to hit the road! I will be MIA until Monday!!! Hope you all have a GREAT weekend!

Until Next Time!

Happy Thursday!!!

Hope this blog entry finds you well!!! As for me - I am a chicken running around with head cut off!!! At least that is how it feels.... I am trying to get all packed up for the weekend get away - picked up my ball dress yesterday.... (Wheew at least that is done).

I am still trying to get all my test cuts and conversions done and I am trying to get some products ordered for the Beloved Keepsakes Scrapbooking store.

Speaking of getting products ordered - I thought I would get you my readers to help me.... I am thinking about stocking the following.... please please leave me a comment and let me know what you think! Good choices? Bad choices??? The good thing about stocking items at the new store is I can undercut the MSRP since I don't have a "traditional brick and mortar" store...

So first up....

The Paper Gator...

Then the Bo Bunny retractable craft knife and self healing board...

The Crop -a-dile Big Bite...

The Basic Grey Precision Files... (these things are awesome!! When your cut isn't quite clean you can use one of the six different files and clean that bad boy up!!!!)

The Making Memories Desk top storage...

The Bo Bunny Patriotic 6x6 Album kit!!! (I plan to make some of these for Christmas gifts and I though I might offer them in the store as well!!)

The Stone Creek Komfy Cushion... (this is actually a craft bag that you unfold and turn into a seat cushion to help pad your you know what while you are at classes, crops, what have you!!!)

The Basic Grey Magnetic Precision Mat with ruler... (I have this myself already and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!!)

And then of course my FAVORITE adhesives.... hmmm and speaking of adhesives.... I promised a contest/quiz today!!!! So...... for the first THREE people who leaves me a comment in the comment section with the correct answer to the quiz will win their choice of a free cutter file - or if they do not have a cutter - their choice of a precut and assembled title from the Beloved Keepsakes Scrapbooking Store....

So here is the question:

"What are my three favorite adhesives??? The ones I use all the time???"

Hurry up and leave an answer in the comment section and you can be one of the THREE WINNERS!!!!!

Until Next Time!


PS - if you think this question is hard - make sure you cruise on over to the main Beloved Keepsakes site - and click around.... you can find the answer over there!!! (Shhhhh!!!) Good Luck!!!

sorry.... sooo sooo sorry!!!

Ok - what can I say - I am a total - and yes I mean TOTAL slacker!! For those of you that visited yesterday - I am soooo soooo soooooo sorry I didn't blog! It was just one of those days! You know - one of those days where you just get NOTHING done.

It started out with my kidney hurting.... I personally am just praying I don't have yet another kidney stone... then my SIL is going through a really really trying time right now (so for all of you out there that believe in the power of prayer - please pray that she will make the right choice and that God will grant her peace). Anyway - she is having a hard time right now so we are trying to help her emotional as much as we can... and then - well hubby has been snoring up a storm and my sleep as been limited!!! And then the icing on the cake... I had a cold sore pop up!!! Grrrr.... three days before the next Military Ball and I get a cold sore!!!! NASTY!!!

Anyway - today I have totally made up for yesterday..... I went to pet smart to get my doggies some food - oh and speaking of dogs - My puppy is growing by leaps and bounds!!! Here is a new photo of him....

And then to show you HOW much he has grown (he was 12 weeks old yesterday) here is a photo of him and our female who is 3 years old!

So I went to Petsmart, then I went and got my hair cut and colored, and then I went and picked up my dress and then I went and got my toe nails all prettied up and I went to the grocery store! Now I am sitting here blogging away - so see I am trying to make up for my slacker day yesterday!!!

Well that's about it here in at the farm (hehehe - get it??? Old McDonald had a farm!!!! Bahahaha)

I think tomorrow I might just poll you on some of the items I am thinking about carrying in the store!!! Sounds like fun! And maybe I will have a contest to boot! Hmmmmm!!!

Until Next Time!

Happy Monday?!?!?

Can you say Monday???? Well I guess technically it is still Monday - and man it has been a killer day!! I have been busting butt for sure....

I have opened several business accounts with some of my favorite scrapbooking companies and I am knee deep in contracts and orders - yep - that's right - I will be selling some of my favorite products at the Beloved Keepsakes Scrapbooking Store!!! So make sure you keep a watch for that!

I also added two new layouts to the Beloved Keepsakes Gallery today! Boy oh boy are they yummy!! If they don't get you inspired - I just don't know what will!!!

And then I did a little shopping for myself online... just comparing prices - I haven't purchased anything yet... but have you seen this baby??? I think I will need to replace my rotary cutter soon and when I do.... this is going to be the one I get!!! OH YEAH!!!
This is the 12" X-Acto Laser Trimmer! It actually has a laser light that shows you where you are cutting! Some of the reviews I read said you can cut three sheets of heavy cardstock at one time!!!

Other than that - this weekend was spent playing "Clean Sweep". You know the TV show where they come to your house with three tarps - one for sell, one for keep and one for toss. Well we cleaned sweeped out garage! Man oh man did it need it - but it was a ton of work!

Well that's it for today! Hope you all had a great weekend and make sure you hit the gallery to see what was posted today!

Until Next Time!
