New Stampin' Up Demonstrator

Hi! My name is Stefanie, spelled with an "f". I wanted to let everyone know that I have recently decided to become a Stampin' Up demonstrator. I enjoy the products that Stampin' Up has to offer, it provides me an opportunity to be extra creative and gives me more ideas for projects. I am hoping that it will also inspire me to finally put all those family photos on scrapbook pages. Right now my goal is set for one new scrapbook page per month.

Six Generation Family Tree – Flags of my ancestors

Six Generation Family Tree – Flags of my ancestors

Everytime I continue my reasearch. I discover new things. The research and discovering new ancestors never seems to end.

Ancestry research however can be very daunting, the names start running together. (Especially if you are working on multiple trees) In some cases parents (mothers and fathers) gave their children the same name they had, which can make research somewhat confusing.

For more information on geneology or ancestry research, click "here".

My puppies love carrots!


  My beagle puppies absolutely love carrots! Carrots are great because you can give it to them raw, or cooked. We haven't tried cooked carrots yet, but I am sure that they would eat them.  Carrots are a wonderful source of vitamins A, C and K, fiber and potassium. Don’t worry, before I feed my puppies people food -  I look it up and make sure that it is safe to consume. According the AmericanKennel Club it is on the “Yes” list. (Not all human food is bad for dogs)
