Making Some Changes

We are making changes around here at Gooseberry Cottage <sigh> I suppose there is no more "cottage", but I do have this great space so I really shouldn't complain!  =)

However, that doesn't mean there aren't changes a'brewin!  After A LOT of deliberation, I think Gooseberry Cottage is going to be saying good-bye.  (But you can still find us!)

I have decided to focus and concentrate my efforts in just a FEW areas instead of MANY!  Hmmm, imagine that!?!

I will be leaving it up for a bit, but for the most part it is going to be inactive.

HOWEVER, I won't REALLY be gone, but I am condensing everything and moving it over to my website.  So there will still be a blog, I will still have all my goodies, it just won't be here at Gooseberry.

I probably just should have changed my hair color, but why not go for the gusto and make a cyber change instead!

Thank you to everyone who stops in to see all of our cards and the moves!  I hope to see you over at Greetings From Suzanne!

Until then,

Happy Stamping!

Zombie Card
Well, I guess I can't necessarily call this guy "cute" but he is definitely not TOO scary!  I had a lady request some zombie invitations for her son's birthday party so I came up with this little guy and then found out he is going to be 17!  Eek!  I should have asked that beforehand, huh?  LOL   So the SCARY zombie card will be coming next week, but in the meantime I have this "cuter" version laying around!  

I did an overlay of tissue paper over his face to make it look like nasty skin and I think it added a nice touch and the googly eyes, well, how can you NOT have googly eyes?

If you would like this googly eyed zombie, please be sure and check him out on Etsy.  I did only make one and once he is gone I don't think I will make another one.

Have a great Labor Day!

New Classes Announced!

Work never seems to end!!!   My daughter is up visiting from Arizona this week before she goes back to college and she totally nailed it when she said, "Mom, you are the busiest person I know who doesn't have a job."  Silly girl, doesn't she know by now that her mother is never without a million things going on?

The latest goings on in my life is planning out the next 4 months of classes and the next 2014 Girls on the Go Retreat in Bloomfield, NM!

I have been busy getting things planned and put up all over cyber space and I am POOPED!   However, I am happy to report that I am all up to date for the most part.  I just realized I still need to update the app, but that can wait until tomorrow!  =)

If you are interested in attending a class or if you would like to enjoy some decent summer weather in Bloomfield, NM, check out our classes and the Girls on the Go Retreat!   More details on the Retreat will be coming soon!!!

Card Classes!

Gooseberry Cottage Moved

Moving never seems to end, you know?   And although there are times when I feel like a traveling gypsy, this time Gooseberry Cottage got to get in on the fun!

Yep, we finally got her over to the new place and talk about an amazing feat!  One that I am glad I was not present for!

You can see all of the fun games by checking out the entire move on our Moore of This and That blog, but I will leave you one little picture just to give you an idea of what she had to go through to get home!

In Colors

I am loving the new In-Colors!  As a special little kick off, I did a last minute class featuring the new In-Colors while I am down in AZ for the week.  I am pretty sure that Strawberry Slush and Coastal Cabana are my favorites!

Wedding Dress

This card was AMAZING to make and a total hit!  My mom wants me to make up a couple of these in different colors as a Big Sister card...which reminds me, I have to make these today!!!!   eeek!

I will definitely post pictures of the new styles as soon as I am finished, but I am definitely missing the flowers from SU.  The ones you find at the store are just not the same and way too big.  (BUMMER)


This card glitters like there is no tomorrow!!!  The picture does not do it justice, unfortunately, but she is a beaut!  I used the metal sheets from Elizabeth Crafts and talk about fun!!!  I do need to use LOTS of tape when taping it down, but so enjoyable.
