  1. Almost got too distracted over at the dream studio and almost forgot to post a comment!

    First - Happy Birthday! You are only as old as you feel!

    Second - I'm loving all the Tim Holtz products! They are a little hard to get here - but my LSS is starting to carry more and more.

    Third - Check out Tim's 12 days of Christmas techniques! I learn something new every time I go there!

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. OK - I had to mention this ... about your b-day photo from 13 years ago..

    (after giggling about Pooh - I think my sister will NEED to have a pooh cake this year! She loved Pooh a a kid!)

    ... I kept looking at the drapery. And looking again! Finally I figured it out! I made a comforter for our bed (and swags/jabot draperies) from that exact same fabric! It was for our first house ~ 15 years ago!

  3. Happy birthday! I just heard today at two peas. Hope you enjoy yourself!

  4. May you have a blessed year full of love, health, and all things creative! :)

  5. Happy Birthday Debby! I enjoy looking at your old photos, aren't they fun?! I hope you have a great birthday finale and a rockin' 50th year to come!! I visited your store BTW!!

    Thanks for the chance to win a great prize. My Michaels carries some of the Tim Holtz products but they don't have the Tim holtz embossing powder.

  11. Debbie - 50 is the new 30s - enjoy life. It's not about a number, it's how you live it day to day. Hope your birthday was fab

  12. So cool to see some of your birthday photos!
    The Glitz line is really fun, I'm not familiar with them. And it looks like you're going to offer some really cool product soon! :)

  13. Happy Birthday!! Your attitude about turning 50 is a very inspiring're right about just now hitting your stride. You go girl!!

    I checked out your store and it looks great! I'm loving all of the 7 Gypsies stuff...especially the Binderie! I want one soooo bad. ;)

  14. What a great place the dream studio is. One of my favorite paper lines is Basic Gray. I love all you have there and boy is it tempting. I am trying to use up some of what I have before buying new goodies. Glad you had a super 50th birthday. Hope the next 50 years are JUSt as GRAND!!!

  15. I love your studio and that you also include craft ideas for mommy and me (even though my me has informed me she is too big for little girl crafts)
    Hope you are having a great day Happy Birthday

  16. Remember Debby, Life begins at 50!!I checked out your store. Best of luck with this venture!
    The coming soon area has some interesting items. I love Jennie Bowlin, but can't find her stuff around here. I can find a little bit of Tim's stuff, mostly stickles & a little grungeboard. I have to drive an hour & half to find any Cosmo Cricket, I have never seen any Wendy Vecchi anywhere, the Fiskars USX plates are impossible to find unless you alphas, or circles...just some ideas.

  17. Thank you, Debbie!

  18. Happy Birthday weekend!! Thanks for the chance for the awesome Tim Holtz goodies!!
