My most embarrassing moment came b/c of my son! He was only about 6 or so. A friend of mine that was in the midst of a divorce came over and she brought her new boyfriend so that we could meet him. My son quickly went upstairs, grabbed his Bible, and read to her the following:
'Thou shall not commit adultery."

I wanted to die!

Both the cards are just adorable..Love the sentiments...So sweet!
I chose my blog name "Quill and Punch works" because when I first started blogging I used to only do Quilling & Punch -craft! :)

Diana Fernandez said...

Wow!! already up to day 13!! I choose my blog name (creationsforastar) because my cat's name is Star, and she used to be my constant companion when I was crafting... I have since gotten another cat who has now replaced her in the craft room, but the blog name remains, and I love it!!!

Amy#8546(TheTigersHaven) said...

Adorable cards and such cute stamps. Why I chose my blog name......well I am an animal lover. I have always had such a fasination with Tigers. Their beauty is so amazingly stunning. When I'm crafting it makes me happy I'm in my own lil world and when I'm around or see tigers I am so mesmerized by their beauty I kinda fall into my own haven. therefore I came up with The Tigers Haven.

I have had my initials as my logo for many years and it seemed to fit for my blog, so I thought why invent the wheel.

Jenn Zeeb said...

My son actually set up my blog for me and asked if he could pick the name for it as well. This was a bit scary but I love it, he did such a great job. Love the new release!

Kaagaz Quilling said...

Adorable Cards! Love them! I choose my blog name - Kaagaz- artisticquilling because.. Kaagaz (which means 'paper' in Urdu) is the base for any craft project, and quilling - which itself is an artistic art, is out of paper, and i knew only quilling when i started off :))

Cheers

walchowDesign said...

Both cards are beautiful! Thanks, Alison for asking this question as I have always wondered how crafters came up with their blog name! I used my DH's surname plus my maiden name as I wanted to have both our names on it!

Janet Zeppa said...

My blog is "Janet's Joy" and my name is Janet & scrapbooking brings me Joy!

Happy Dance said...

Life is good. We are blessed. So why not celebrate all the little things in life? The name of my blog is "Gotta Do the Happy Dance". And everyone does a little happy dance when that special card turns out just right, or when a package from TAWS arrives in the mailbox! Paper crafting, especially those using stamps, makes me want to do the happy dance. And happy dancing is waaaay better than "sad stomping".

Lillian Child said...

What delightful cards!! Love the sentiments! I chose my blog name as my son has an amazing sense of humor and this is what he titled one of his gradeschool papers that he wrote. He makes me laugh every single day!

Kaylee Snyder said...

Such cute designs. I love the red light bulbs. My blog name came from my goal to make 2 cards a week which is 104 in a year. I'm currently making about 4-5 projects a week and not always cards so the name isn't so fitting anymore. But I like it so it's staying.

Indy said...

Fabulous cards! When my hubby first met me, I was the only person he knew from Indiana, so he nicknamed me Indy. Over 20 years later, he still calls me Indy.

{Chrissie} said...

My blog name is Harvest Moon Papiere. I chose Harvest Moon because my birthday is in the Fall. Papiere just sounded nicer than "Papercrafts" or anything else!

Thanks for the inspiration!

{Chrissie} said...

I shared this post on Facebook! Have a great Saturday!

snappy scrappy said...

Super cute cards. My blog is http://leescraps.blogspot.com/
The reason I went with this is that my name is Lee-Ann...and I started papercrafting with scrapbooking...hence the scraps. My identity is snappy scrappy...because...once I get going...I'm pretty quick at completing a project. Lee-Ann :)

Christy Q @ SchnauzerCrafts Creations said...

Super cute!!! I love the tag in the glassine envelope. As for my blog name - I love my schnauzer and crafting so I wanted I share my creations via my blog with family and friends that are far away.

Mary Pat Siehl said...

love it!!

my last name is siehl and so i used a play on words to name my blog
siehled with a kiss!! i thought it was fun!

Tracy said...

I chose my blog name, Owl Be Craftin', because I love owls and I thought it was cute : )

Esther said...

As always, sweet and adorable card ladies!!!!!

I chose my blog name because it reflects exactly why I create, because it simply brings me joy to do so!
I am happiest in my craft room!!!

cm said...

Wow - beautiful cards and wonderful stories about how fellow-crafters arrived at their blog names. Because I'm so new at this and need waaayyyy more skill/talent - plus courage/confidence before sharing 'out loud' - I'm currently blog-less. Thinking about it, though. If I did, one word I'd have in my blog name would be 'just' - 'just because'...Thank you again for a great topic, great cards, great inspiration.

Meghan said...

Great cards and fabulous stamps! My blog name just is...I think I was heavily influenced by Little Yellow Bicycle products at the time but I love pink.

Heidi Brawley said...

I shared on my Facebook wall. Love the creations shown here today!!!!

Chris D. said...

Both of these cards are just amazing! My blog name is Chrispy's Creations. Chrispy is my childhood nickname and most everyone I know still calls me that! LOL! Thanks for the chance to win!

Chris D. said...

Sharla said...

awesome cards, love the lightbulb!! My blog is "this thing called life" because originally I was going to keep it as an online journal, but it's turned mostly to scrappy/card/crafty stuff.

Suze said...

I chose my blog name "Crafty Suze" as it is my craft blog.

Shannon J said...

The name of my blog is sentimental to me, although my 13 year old nephew calls the name "questionable"!!! The blog is called Chuchee Chu - Chuchee because that is what my Dad used to call me as a little girl...and still does, and Chu is my husband's last name. And there you have it - Chuchee Chu - that's me!

Marie / Legojenta said...

My blog name is "My Creative Creations" and I love how it flows. And it's true - my blog is about my creative creations =)

Michelle said...

My blog name is pretty plain (Michelle's Crafty Corner) because I just couldn't come up with anything witty. But, the name reflects who I am: simple and straight-forward.

Thanks for the opportunity to win this adorable stamp set. I love cupcakes and anything mini!

Kris B said...

Awesome cards!! My blog name (created by Kris b) came from the stamp I use on the back of my cards. The stamp says "created by" and then I sign my name.

jimlynn said...

I actually don't like my blog name....too plain and simple - but I needed a blog immediately to enter a contest so that's what I used. Oh, I ended up winning the contest too! LOL!

Moosisk said...

I have had a long standing love of cows. My maternal grandparents had a dairy farm in Wisconsin and spent a lot of summers there on the farm. I loved playing with the new calves and helping with milking. After I married I started collecting cows of all fashions including "Mary Moo-Moos" which are figurines. When I created my first email address all the various forms of my name were taken so I just decided on "moosisk" and of course that one was open. My blog came several years later and I just kept with the cow theme. My blog is entitles "Stamping with Moo" which can be punny. LOL Any who that is how my name came about.

Sandy said...

The DT has really outdone themselves this week.
Blog name -- stamping is my hobby, writing/editing is my profession, so I called it Adventures of a Stamping Writer.

FrancineB said...

I choose my blog name because of my response when my I call various members of my family. It usually goes like this, "Hey, 'insert name here', it's just me.

Hence the name of my blog--It's just me. :)

Geri said...

Love the bright and cheery cards! I chose my blog name in a 10 second panic. Was new to blogging, decided to set up my own blog, didn't have a clue what I was doing, got to the question for a blog name, typed the first thing that came to mind...the rest is history!

Edwina said...

Edwina's Creations is my blog name. My name is Edwina. I wanted something that would cover everything I create. I make cards, layouts, crafts, painting. Creations cover all of that. Edwina Brown

Pam said...

My blog name came from my online store I had, which is long gone. But I kept the name anyway because we all are stampers!!! Sweet cards today too!

Pat said...

Cute cards!

My blog name came from just wanting a little corner of the "blog" world where I could share my crafts...

Lisa's Creative Niche said...

I just LOVE that vellum bag and the nuts and bolts sentiment hehehe! Thanks! I chose my blog name well quite honestly I don't know how it popped in my head but I did think the word niche was cute and somehow it just formed in my head! Thanks!

Amy Kolling said...

I chose my blog name because someday I hope to live where it is paradise and of course be crafty!
LOVE Kasia's card today!!!

MiamiKel said...

Gorgeous DT inspiration once again! I chose my blog name due to the Miami life we have and live :) We make sandcastles every chance we get!

Christiana said...

Love both cards! I chose my blog name because I wanted to keep it simple and clear as to the subject matter. My name is Christy and I like to get crafty. ;) So Christy Gets Crafty was born!

Message Keeper said...

My blog name is Message Keeper. Why I choose this name is because I like message (cards) to be kept and re-visit them after sometimes like old letters. It brings back memories when you read messages in cards!

Message Keeper said...

I shared this on my blog sidebar. Thanks for asking this question today and I love it!

Mary-Anne V said...

I do not have a blog so no story yet. Love today's card examples.

arlsmom aka Lynda said...
