Hello there! :)

My name is AnnMarie and I am hosting a {virtual! :)} Paper Pajama Party (also known as a fun new blogging group)!! I will be the one in the pink slippers!! :)

I am looking for a special group of ladies to invite to my party!! Do you love to stamp and or scrapbook and create lots of fun things from paper?! Do you like to do challenges and swaps? Do you like to play games and make new friends and indulge in the occasional midnight snack (oh wait...that one is me!)?! Do you like chitter chatting about projects and your day and just life in general? This may be the place for you then!! Read over my invitation and see if you are who I am looking for:

....>>>....>>>>..........**PAPER PAJAMA PARTY!!!**..........<<<<....<<<.....


What: Pink Slipper Paper Pajama Party (Your slippers can be any color you like!) :)

When: Starts today!

Who: **Looking for 12 seriously paper crafty creating ladies who really enjoy blogging and post to their blog 2-4 times a week (a lot, I know, but I am looking for people willing to make and stick to a commitment!)
**Ladies willing to stop by each blog of their fellow Paper Pajama Party friends and leave some sweet, encouraging words a couple times a week!
**Ladies who will check in here several times a week (or more...some of us have lots to talk about!) to see how the party is going!
** Ladies willing to jump in and make the party memorable by contributing to the group in a positive way.

What to Bring: Super attitude!! Willingness to make some great new friends! Willingness to be a little silly when required! Willingness to be an active part of what is going to be an active group! Sense of humor (just in case you are the first one to fall asleep and wind up with a frozen bra or whipped cream in your hand and a tickle to your nose with a feather!!) Snacks! Bring lots of snacks!! Paper and chocolate will do just fine! :)

.................................................. .................................................. ....

Weeeeeeellllll....what do ya think?!! Does this sound like you?! Would you like to put on your finest pajamas and fuzziest slippers and have some paper fun?! If so, sign on up! I look forward to meeting you and look forward to the friendships and good times ahead!

Hiya! :)

My internal clock is still all loopy from traveling home across times zones and the added change of Daylight savings time last week so I was up suuuuuuuper late last night playing with paper, ink and stamps! Lookie:

nhagen 03-19-2012 07:14 AM

WOW! Those are super cute. How long does it take you to make all of that? I feel like it takes me forever (like several hours or more) to make one card or one scrap page.

amsmiles 03-19-2012 07:21 AM

Thank you! :) I think I am a really slow crafter, so it does take me a long time too! Probably spent about three hours fidgeting with all of these last night, but that includes my two (ok, fine...three!) chocolate breaks and a quick dinner break! :)

nhagen 03-19-2012 07:28 AM

It would probably take me three hours just to make one!

You must have a lot of shape punches. I only have three circle punches. I need to learn how to make all these cute critters and flowers etc with punches. I can make basic shapes with the cricut but I just don't know where to start.

BTW, you make the cutest things!!

amsmiles 03-19-2012 07:42 AM

*hangs head all embarrassed like* Yeah, sadly I have lots and lots (and lots) of punches! I kind of have a little punch addiction thing going on. I considered getting help once, but decided life really was too short! LOL *insert evil laugh here* If you ever need any shapes punched just let me know and I would be happy to send you bunches! :)

I love punch art! Makes me feel slightly more justified in buying a punch when I can console myself with the fact that I will be able to use that shape for multiple uses! LOL (whatever helps me sleep at night, right!) LOL :rolleyes: Yeah, I got it bad!

nhagen 03-19-2012 07:55 AM

LOL

You're too funny!

We all have some kind of addiction. I keep buying paper when I probably don't need it! I go to Tuesday Morning and Big Lots scouting for paper!! I keep most scraps, too. You never know when you might need a two inch piece of paper! LOLOLOLOL

With all the paper I have, I can never find the right color either! It's mostly solid paper too. I have a hard time buying patterned paper. I really scrutinize the designs and the colors and if I will use it. I have bunches I need to use and haven't. So much paper, so little time, LOL!!

I did score some really nice DP at Hobby Lobby the other day in their clearance section. That's my new discovery. HL's clearance section. I have bought several Sizzix dies there recently. I need to stop going in there!!!!

cajojus 03-19-2012 08:08 AM

Good morning ladies!!!. I know... AnnMarie is the "Queen of Punches". You are great lady!!! and I thought you may have LOTS and LOTS of them, LOL!!!. I love your punch creations. I die for dies, especially the MFT ones. My birthday is next month and my husband already "let me" buy $200 of MFT dies, I felt so guilty spending so much money on those dies but HEY...it is my thing!!!. I don't need clothes or shoes or purses or anything... I enjoy using my craft things!!!. Lately I also like to buy 6x6 or 8x8 DP packs. I used to buy 12x12 for scrapbooking but I love the designs of those little pads for cards. I need to get back to my scrapbooking though. I need to take my mom and myself to the doctor this morning and I realized I need to update my blog as well. I usually don't leave my blog unattended for so long, so probably I'll work a little bit this afternoon!!!. Hope you have a great day!!!

amsmiles 03-19-2012 08:18 AM

Morning Carolina! :)

I feel much the same way. I don't spend too much money on purses or shoes etc. but show me a Stampin Up! cattie and I am a droolin' fool! Your hubby sounds nice! :) LOL I am glad that you treated yourself for your bday! You deserve it! Auuuuuugh! Paper, and dies and ribbon...oh my! So nice to be able to hang out here with folks that truly understand me! I have the most amazing family ever, but when I start babbling on about colors and paper and the texture of ribbons their eyes glaze over!..LOL

Hope your doctor's visits go well! :)

amsmiles 03-19-2012 08:21 AM

Nancy, isn't it crazy that we can own stacks and stacks of paper and still not have the exact right sheet? I wish I lived closer to a HL! Closest one is a couple of hours away. I know what you are saying about the patterned paper too. I try to visualize what I can do with small pieces of it rather than the whole 12 x 12 sheet. Otherwise I would just feel overwhelmed by it.

amsmiles 03-19-2012 08:21 AM

Celle....hope you are having a nice Monday! :)

nhagen 03-19-2012 08:46 AM

Good morning Carolina! $200 is a lot of dies! LOL I need to use my dies more. I have several nesties and there are some new ones they have now that are really nice! I haven't broken down yet though.

My DD1 doesn't do crafts. It's a bummer. She did make an altered notebook for a friend as a gift. I helped her a little with ideas. I even let her borrow some stamps and alcohol inks. She is addicted to horses instead!

I have been busy today (I know it doesn't look like it) just tidying up, dishes, dishwasher, laundry (just one load). I just sat down for lunch and I am trying to think about what I want to scrap.....decisions, decisions, decisions...

creativec 03-19-2012 08:58 AM

Ok AnnMarie I'm in! :)

My slipper is yellow! (maybe with a little bit of brown :P)
Looking forward to having fun with some very talented crafters!!

Hi, AnnMarie!

I just added the badge. I will start the bloglist as soon as I get home -- I'm at work (and although work is a necessity, it does cut into my stamping, crafting, and blogging time! Lol.).

Thanks again!

Celle

Hi, AnnMarie!

Hi, Carolina! Nice to meet you!

I know what you ladies mean about crafting and crafting supplies. I used to buy shoes, purses, and makeup (before the crafting bug bit me). Now I don't buy anything else (unless I absolutely have to) except crafting stuff. And the SU catalog enables me!!! My catty is tattered and torn (from marking off all the stuff I wanted). Arrgh! :)

Carolina, your husband is so sweet to treat you to dies! :D I love dies, I love punches, I love paper, I love stamps and ink pads! I'm not sure if I can use all of them in my lifetime, but I love them all. I wish we had 48 hours in a day, where we can do our regular stuff in the first 24, and then craft in the next 24! Lol.

Have a great day, ladies!
