I've been a litte frustrated to say the least. Some of you have contacted me stating that you havent been getting the automatic updates when I post to my blog. I didnt know what to say as I didnt know how to fix it as that is a 'Feedblitz thing' and out of my control ;o(
Sooo tonight I was reading the blog of "Inking Aloud" and she had posted the following in her post today:
"Feedblitz issues should be solved now (thanks, Feedblitz tech support!). If you have subscribed to Inking Aloud through Feedblitz but haven't been receiving regular updates, you should start to see them. Thanks for your patience."
Sooo....I am just conducting a little test here --- Just to see if you, and I, are back to receiving our notificaitons when I post to my blog ;o) If NOT, then I will need to conatct Feedblitz tech support and see what I need to do.....*humm tapping finger on chin* .....here's hoping it works!!
IF it works ... I really have posted a few new projects! Please, check em' out!!

I made it for a high school girl that we know that graduated this year from high school. I wanted to give this CD binding a try and thought this would be fun!!
I took some regular plain CD's and used a circle cutter along with the SU! printed playhouse papers and went circle crazy. I was not able to cut exactly the size of circle I needed to fit the CD exact, so being a little smaller than the CD is OK -- gives each 'page' a bit of a shine, right? *wink wink* On the back of each CD I just used a circle punch to cover the hole of the middle of the CD. I thought about covering each side but then thought .....*humm*.... it would be fun if I left the back side blank and suggested to Tille that she could use a Sharpie marker and write her comments that would correspond with the pictures on the other half of the 'page'. OR even let her friends write their comments too!
The 't' on the front of the album is from the chipboard SU! Simon lower collection. I then just covered it with the paper and 'sanded' it around the edges -- that is such a fun and easy technique!
I added a tab to each page just to add a bit of flair to the edges of each page and I just love to use my tab punch at every chance I get! I wrapped a little piece of stitched ribbon around the tab and placed a diamond brad in the center to gather it a bit too. I added a fun stamped word to each page and taped it to the CD. In the following pictures you can also see how the tab looks on the back side of the CD.
I tried to stagger out the tabs so when the book was closed they looked spaced out .
This was a blast to make and really didnt take much time at all!! The last thing I did was add some fun SU! ribbon to the spiral binding just to dress it up a bit too!
I plan on making more of these in the future!! These could easily be done with more pages too --- that all just depends on how big of a spiral binding you have --- the ideas are endless!!

My Mom and I *snuck* in to her house last Sunday afternoon while she was away and took pictures of her cat and dog so my Mom, her Aunt, could create a collage picture frame gift for her ~ ~ ~ It turned out supah' cute ;o) I also took the opportunity to snap a few pictures of the rest of the family -- Mom, Dad and brother doing silly things that our family does. It was just a blast taking the pictures but even more fun putting this brown bag album together!!
So each brown bag would have 'four pages' technically. So this book had 16 pages from beginning to end.
in my family
like fudge… mostly sweet
with a few nuts.
so bright it
burns my eyes

Check it out here!!
You can click on how you want it sorted -- by page number or in abc order by stamp set name.
WOW ~ ~ ~ Is it evah' long! My shelves are gonna' be bare for awhile. My Mom's shelves will be plenty full though!! I always take my retired stamp sets over to her stamp room ... you know that makes room for new rubbah' for me ;o))
This year I told her though that she is gonna have to go thru the years and years of me doing this and decide what she does not want/use anymore and I will get 'rid' of them ... making room for 'more of the newly retired' sets for her! lol I have never sold a retired stamp set but I think I just may start that process. Gosh I think I have stamp sets clear back to 1997 --- geesh! We will have to see what Mom wants to part with! ...Maybe when I tell her that I have 99 stamp sets and 16 wheels headed her way she will be a bit more willing to give up some of the really really old stuff, suppose?
So have you had a chance to take a look at the retirement list yet? How many stamp sets/wheels will you be 'loosing' this catalog year? Just out of curiosity, even if you are a SU! demo or not, what do you do with your retired sets? I'd love to hear from you ---- post away ;o) Thanks for sharing!!
