Posting to Pinterest


I will no longer be posting on this website.  I’ve decided to post to Pinterest going forward. You can follow me on Pinterest at http://www.pinterest.com/michellesurette.  I want to thank everyone over the years who have supported me and I am leaving the blog up so you can search for things I’ve posted in the past.

See you on Pinterest!



I can’t believe I haven’t posted anything in almost a year!!!!  I’ve had many changes over the past year,  and we’ve been doing some major renovations in our 100 year old house.  Things are almost done and I’m hoping to get back into posting projects. My projects are pretty much going to be for me and gifts for family and friends. I’m no longer doing craft shows and haven’t done a class in almost 2 years.  Just don’t have the time to prep any more!   I hope to post more than once a year too!

This pumpkin banner is for my cubicle at my new job.  My cubical is huge so I have lots of decorating to do.  It’s just made with ovals and some leaf dies.  I just noticed I have to fix the middle pumpkin, it’s a little crooked!

Oh, love the Longaberger pumpkins too!


Craft Show Coming Up!

I will be at the Tewksbury Applefest Craft Show this Saturday, October 31 in Tewksbury Mass from 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM

Tewksbury Memorial High School 320 Pleasant Street
Tewksbury, MA 01876

Here are some pictures from last years’ fair!


A customer of mine asked for 5 “chocolate” cakes for a team building reward at her work.  I’ve made so many of these I can now do them in my sleep!

My stamp room is still a little disheveled due to the construction going on in the house so I couldn’t set up my photo studio to take a good picture.  But you can see they were very festive🙂

The tutorial is still for sale for these cakes.  You can check this one out here.

Also, don’t forget about Tax Free Weekend in Massachusetts!  To get free shipping and no sales tax, you must email me your order by Sunday at 6:00 PM.  Hostess benefits will not apply if your order is over $150.00.

Chocolate Cakes

Well, two months have passed and no posts.  I had my knee replaced a month ago and I’m just starting to get back into my stamp room!  The surgery went well and I’m ahead of the game at this point. The one GOOD think about having a knee replacement when your young🙂  I gotta tell ya, not being able to drive was the worse!

Here is a cute ornament I made with the Star Framelits.  I’m planning on doing the Tewksbury Applefest Craft Show again this year on Halloween.  So, I’m starting to make Christmas stuff again!!!  I really missed stamping. Hopefully, I’ll be posting more as I get better and am able to sit in a chair for more than 10 minutes!

Catching Up

I’m really bummed I don’t have time to stamp like I use to!  At some point over the next few months, I may end up having a little more.  I’m scheduled for knee replacement surgery and I’m trying to figure out how to stamp while in bed!!! LOL!!!!

I have the new catalog that starts June 2!  It has some really exciting product in it! Only a few more days of the old catty so get your retiring product before they are gone forever (or high priced on Ebay!)

In any case, here’s a picture of a flower pot I made for my mother for Mother’s Day.  My BFF made one (Karen!) and I just had to copy it! It’s made with the Floral Framelits collection.
