“On the Road Again”

The words of Willie Nelson…..those words have become the story of our life. Headed to Kentucky this morning, looking like the Beverly hillbillies. I have to say that Steve and I make good travel buddies. One requirement that is necessary to travel with my hunky is, you have to like singing… liking singing, that usually means listening to him sing. I chime in once in awhile. It certainly helps to pass the time. He always tells me he should try out for American idol. Oh, how I love that Man. (I think it’s to late for that now, with next season being the last.)

We should arrive in Kentucky about noon…..I will get quite a bit of knitting done. That’s one of the upsides of road trips. The Sanibel cowl I’m working on, will appropriately be named, Kentucky.

Have a great day

Be happy….and have a happy life crafting.  


A new beginning 

I’ve  decided to start a blog….. Thank you for subscribing or following. 

My name is Janette Boas and I am a Stampin’up demonstrator. I have recently reached supervisor status. Thank you Jackie Martin for helping me reach that goal. Interestingly enough my sister, Jackie is the one who introduced me to Stampin’up about 20 years ago. She hosted a class, which is where I bought my first stamp set, that I still have today. It turned out that I was a sloppy stamper. It seemed as though I would get ink everywhere except where it needed to be. My career with stamping, needless to say ended, until 2 years ago.
I have always scrapbooked and made cards, (amongst a couple and a few other things) but I did it without stamping. Now that I have mastered the art of stamping, more oppurtunities have been opened in the paper arts department. I’ll get into more of that later. I have never been a big collector of anything, until now. I can say with NO guilt, I am a proud collector of stamps. Thank you Stampin up…. thank You Beth for, sharing in this crazy addiction with me and thank you Kathleen for being a supportive upline. I also want to thank the ladies who come to my classes, who also help support my habit.

Stampin ‘ up is a company that makes paper crafting very easy. The papers, inks and embelishments are color coordinated, which helps simplify the planning process. Once you get past the initial inspiration stage you are ready to create without the extra thinking of what, goes with what. They have a wide array of stamps to choose from which makes card making for any occasion simple and fun. You can check out my Stampin’ up store by clicking the tab at the top of my page that says: Shop Now. Be sure to check out the weekly deals link under the shop now tab. 
We are leaving for Kentucky in the morning for the Kentucky Sheep and Fiber Festival. My husband Steve, who I affectionately call “Hunky” has a hobbie as a Woodturner, which we were able to turn into a small business. I’ll be sharing more about that too. Meanwhile I need to get some sleep.

Sweet dreams

Be happy….. And have a happy life crafting!
