Here are a few of the things that I have been working on lately. The first is a Thank You card for some of the baby gifts that we are already receiving! YEAH! I love the I'm Here stamp set from Stampin Up, I don't think I will be getting rid of it for a LONG time!

The next scrapbook page is one that we created at club this past month. This was the boy version. I just love this color combination: Bordering Blue, Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip, and Whisper White! So fun!

Here is a close up of the pocket. I will do a tutorial on how to create this pocket soon!

And here is the Baby Girl version! I love the Nursery Necessities stamp set! So cute!

And here is a close up. The color combination for this page is: Pixie Pink, Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip, and Whisper White.

Hope you all are having a great Thanksgiving weekend! Come back later today for a post about Stampin Up's great specials this weekend...or just check them out on my website: www.kimryden.stampinup.net.


It's Clean!

Good news club members! My craft room is clean! And this is also good news for all you blog readers. This means that I will now be able to create more and post more craft projects! YEAH!
Tonight I worked on the classes that I have coming up. I will post pictures of the projects soon!


Wednesday Update

Sorry that it's been so long since I've posted anything craft related! (But you can see something at my family website http://www.therydenfamily.blogspot.com/.) In the picture below you can see the state of my craft room... so I have to work on cleaning this up before I can create anything! HA HA! And for you club members, this why we were creating in my kitchen last month! HA HA!

Here is another project that has been taking up some time in our house. We are in the process of painting our bathroom...don't you love the color?

And we we are ready to lay tile once we have access to a tile cutter!

And here is our baby room. It has (for now) become painting central! The ceiling is painted and we might get some color on the walls this weekend if we can't tile!

And in other news...1 of 3 pieces of the baby furniture arrived this week! The changing table is here and ready to be assembled after painting central is cleared out! YEAH! It's a busy time in our household!


Happy Halloween a Week Late

So Halloween this year didn't really happen on Halloween in the Ryden household. On the real Halloween we were at my brother-in-law's house and the puppies were at home in the kennel. So we played Halloween on Monday! Here are the puppies during their Halloween photoshoot.

This year Chloe was a Bumble Bee! Look at that cute head tilt! (And yes, her hat is hanging around her neck...they need to design those things better!)

Gus was a lobster! Doesn't he look so scary?!!

There's me with my 2 babies. It was kinda hot that day and very windy!

Look at that cute Bumble Bee!

And again with the lobster!


Calendar Class or KIT

Calendar Class
Stampin Up

LOCATION: Kim's House

Come on out and create a cute calendar for 2009 using the calendar kit that can be found in your new Mini Catalog! This class will include the calendar kit as well as an embellished Chipboard Clipboard to hold the calendar all year long! This calendar would also make a GREAT Christmas present! You are welcome to purchase more than one kit!

If you are unable to attend on the 17th you can plan on making your calendar at the crop on November 22nd (between noon and midnight) OR I can mail the kit to your home for an additional $5 OR if you are in town, we can arrange to get together and get you your kit. (Kit will include all of the items needed to embellish your calendar and clipboard, except glue.)

YOU MUST RSVP by midnight on Wednesday, Nov 5th for this class or purchase of the kit. I will then order the supplies so that they will be here in time for our class. If you RSVP for the class and are unable to attend on the 17th or 22nd you will still be responsible for the purchase of the kit.

To RSVP just email me at demokimsu@yahoo.com. Hope to see you all soon!
