My new obsession

I love blogs. I mean, I REALLY love blogs. It’s like reading a little non-fiction book right on my screen, any time. I love serious business blogs, financial blogs, cooking blogs (even though I can’t cook!), decorating blogs and of course, crafting blogs. Google Reader is my new obsession! Now I can read all my favorite blogs in one place. I also have Google Alerts set up for some topics and I can read those here too. FAB.U.LOUS!

I wanted to pass along a neat project idea I found today during my blog reading. Hop over there to read the full directions. I hope you have a great day!

Love Sparkles Layout and Card

Here are the Love Sparkles projects I created (more to come):

*Sorry for the wonky photo – I didn’t have time/was too lazy to scan it in. 😉

All products used were directly from the Simply Scrappin’ kit. The three dots at the top were simply hole-punched with a standard office hole punch from one of the Chocolate Chip stickers included.

I also created a card with the Whisper White cardstock from the kit:

I used our Beautiful Wings Embosslits from the Holiday Mini (it’s still available!) and my new Perfect Details Texturz Plate Die for use in the Big Shot. I stamped the saying from Very Thankful (proceeds go to the Ronald McDonald Charities!) in So Saffron. Super quick and easy! I think this would be lovely as a wedding or shower thank you as well.

Have a great weekend! 🙂

An idea to ponder

**Don’t forget! This Saturday I’m hosting a craft supply yard sale from 8-1 and a Spring Fun workshop from 3-5! The sangria’s already on my list of groceries… HINT HINT! Hoping I can bribe you with booze, lol! 😉 **

I was blog-surfing the other day and came across a fabulous quote in passing. I’m afraid I can’t remember which blog it was on, but it was a business blog.

“Spend your money as if you were voting.”

So concise, so clear, and so right-on-point. Too often we buy things “just because”.

It was cheap.

It was fast.

It was there.

But what if we went out of our way a bit more each day. What if we spent our money on things that tasted better, felt better against our skin, took care of our bodies better, and with businesses and people we trusted and cared about?

Now I’m not one of those people who only buys from small businesses, hates the big-box stores and only eats organic. However, I firmly believe in supporting the businesses and employees I care about. I do try to buy handmade whenever possible (I need to work on that), and try not to give into instant gratification when something I want is available at a valued business but I find it at a place I wouldn’t usually give my money right now (I really need to work on that).

As an independent business woman I can firmly say that I want to be that person/business that is valued. I want my customers to become friends as I’ve become friends with so many people at the businesses I frequent. Where we spend our money is usually the place we spend the most of our time. More importantly, I want to put something out there that makes people feel better about themselves, their abilities and their memories.

And I want to spend my money like I’m voting.

At http://mamabearstamps.etsy.com you’ll find hand-stamped and handmade embellishments, cards, and more. My embellishments already have foam tape applied to the back, so you can simply peel-and-stick for fast embellishments!

I hope you’re having a great week! Only one more until Spring Break (aka Mom’s Week Off!) here! 😉 ~T~

Howdy!

I'm Tammy Moore, a scrapbooking fanatic in Austin, TX. Thanks for stopping by my little space on the web. Feel free to contact me any time!

Why “Mama Bear Stamps”?

A few years ago my daughter and husband gave me the nickname "Mama Bear" and I've used it ever since! This year I even conqured my fear of needles and had the Chinese symbols of mother and bear tattooed above my right ankle. When I started this blog, I knew I wanted to go by my nickname: Mama Bear. But you can call me Tammy if you'd like. :)
