Hi friends! Let's start the week off right with the next, latest, greatest, STAMPtember stamp set! Today I'm introducing the limited edition stamp set collaboration between Simon Says Stamp and our lovely friends at WPlus9! Yay! It's called Holiday Trimmings! I have been a fan of WPlus9 for a very long time and this Christmas set designed for the STAMPtember event is lovely! I used the Christmas trees and the beautiful sentiments to stamp a set of gift tags to tuck away for the holidays. I can grab them and tie them on a package or a gift bag when... Continue reading

Greetings and bushels of love on this pretty Autumn day! We're now officially in the final week of STAMPtember, but there is still a lot of good stuff to share! (as a side note, Weekender with Wanda will start up again this Saturday on the SSS blog - yay!) Here in Sactown there are leaves falling from the trees, and blowing down the street. Some of the trees in our neighborhood are just slightly turning color! I am endlessly renewed by the changing of the seasons, when mother nature puts on a show for us. Julie Ebersole was in town...

Hasn't it been a fun ride? So many new products and so much inspiration at every turn. I have three more Stamptember blog posts and this is the first one of the three. Today we're celebrating a limited... Continue reading

Hey everyone! It's Sunday afternoon already?? How is that even possible?? I am in kind of a weird mood so forgive my story for today. Who knows, maybe I will make you laugh, and in the process, make myself laugh too. I have been in a BAD MOOD all day! I don't even know why... Nothing is wrong, I am happy and blessed.... And crabby! My friends always say "you are never in a bad mood!" But just ask my husband! Hahaha. Maybe chalk it up to being an old gal who has raging hormones... I dunno. I think I... Continue reading

Hello my dear crafty peeps! Hope you're having an awesome week! I went out to dinner with a girl friend last night and we had such a lovely conversation. She is so super busy, and I hardly ever get her all to myself, so it was a real treat. Don't you love that? We got caught up on loads of gossip and it was wonderful! It's hotter than heck here still and I'm hibernating indoors as much as possible. The great studio purge of 2016 was under way all weekend. OY. I got rid of a lot of old paper,... Continue reading

I did some organizing in the studio yesterday and stayed inside! I made one mistake, though. I had planned a casserole for dinner! Ack, so I had to turn on the oven! I have been making tons of recipes off... Continue reading
