Retirement Lists!! my BIG news that I mentioned previously is that I have become a Merchandiser with Chloe and Isabel. They are a new jewelry company that recently celebrated their third birthday...I LOVE everything about it...the product, quality, support, price and even their logo: Ca-ute!!!
These little birdies have taken up residency here at the Barker household. This last Tuesday I held my Grand Opening Pop-Up here at my home and I loved that fact that while I was 'go-to' for decorations was still Stampin' Up!. I have embraced the fact that I am indeed a's in my blood!! It was funny trying NOT to use Stampin' Up!
Here was a banner I made:

Then using the same Etcetera DSP (130129) I made this cute frame:

There was glass, that I removed and screwed it tiny eyebolts. Added some wire and ta-da!! I love that I will be able to swap the paper out to coordinate a themed event or season!! (Thank-you Pinterest!) 

When you get a chance, stop by my online Boutique and see for yourself!! There is something for everyone!!

Here are the 'thank-you' cards I made for my customers who placed an order during the month of April...I am SO excited that I have lots of bird stamps and accessories!!

The shimmer really POPS with the flash!! It's SO purdy in real life!!

Tomorrow night I am hosting Stamp has been QUITE a busy week!! I was supposed to go to Bunco tonight but I have my son's baseball game to attend..the last game I missed he hit a triple!! So I bailed on Bunco this month...I don't want to disappoint Aiden (they grow too quickly as it is!!)

Here is one of the cards we will be making:
It's actually an envelope~ you seal it shut and cut off 1/4" to create a pocket...EASY!!
Here is another pic:
And...last pic is a close-up:
