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

Hello crafty pals! How are you? Happy Sunday! Did you see my post on the SSS Blog yesterday? I hope so, because I LOOOOOOOOVE that project! (CLICK HERE) And if you leave a comment you could win a prize. It was super fun to make that one! Is it hot where you are? It's been 105 every day here. Whew. 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

Hi everybody! Dang, Thursday already! Hope you've had a great week! Our washer died about a month ago and we had to buy a new set.... Well, today our TV died! I hate dealing with stuff like that, don't you? Luckily TV's are pretty inexpensive nowadays. Our old TV should be in the Smithsonian anyway.... I guess it was time. But, it's never a good time! I will look forward to watching movies in HD now though! And, please pray for us that we don't need to involve Comcast in the process! Oy. I'm here today with a post to... Continue reading

Hi crafty friends! How is your weekend going? That Simon Says Stamp blog hop yesterday was really something! WOWZA! So many projects! My head is spinning from all the inspiration. You still have time to leave comments on all the blogs for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate! What a really fun thing to be involved in - I'm so fortunate! Our world is going crazy this past week and I'm hiding out in my studio with Buddy and coffee. My heart is heavy and sad and I'm not sure how much more violence and evil we can... Continue reading

Hi everyone! Happy Sunday! Happy weekend! How are you?! It's been a week since I've blogged, and it feels weird to have been away so long! Thank you to everyone who sent me a nice note or left a comment about my back being hurt. I spent all last week in a lot of pain. It's the kind of pain that never lets up and it's so frustrating. If you've ever had low back issues, you know exactly what I'm talking about. The thing is, I'm super busy right now too, so I had to keep going. I started stamping... Continue reading

Hi everyone! Happy Saturday! How was your week? I had a good week - and it went by fast! Thursday night I met up with some gal pals and we had a nice dinner and took a card class at our local Paper Source! We had a really nice time. Friday our new washer and dryer got delivered. We had been without for about 10 days. Needless to say I spent most of Friday doing laundry. We switched back from a front loader to a top loader and it seems to be working great. UGH. Glad that drama is over... Continue reading

Hi friends and crafty peeps! I'm back already! I got something in the mail finally that I have been waiting for! They are finally in stock again and now in my hot little hands... What am I talking about? Diamonds! EEEK! The prettiest little jars of gems to use in shaker cards! The idea for this card has been in my head for a while and I was waiting for the gems to arrive. Well, last night I couldn't open the package fast enough and make this card. I don't make shaker cards a lot, but I really love them!... Continue reading

Hi friends! Happy June! How are you? Is your Summer off to a fun start? I sure hope it is! We have had a brutal heat wave the past six or seven days with it being at or over 100 degrees every day. Yuck! It's supposed to be a lot nicer next week. Summer just came right in, quick! It's weird, too, because all I have been doing in the studio lately is Christmas stamping! But, let me get to that in a minute. Things are good here in my corner of the world. The hubs and I always celebrate... Continue reading

Hey party people! How was your Memorial Day Weekend? Nice to have a few days with the family and friends at the beginning of summer isn't it? I worked most of the weekend, which is so strange because it's the opposite of my 'old' life! I don't mind one bit though. I had a most awesome work assignment on Sunday helping Brenda photograph her Christmas Classics Collection for Sizzix that will be coming out soon. (Yes, we are talking about Christmas already!) I love to collaborate and we had a fun and productive day. It is super HOT here right... Continue reading

Hi everyone! I have a huge announcement today....ready? I actually cooked something from my Pinterest Board!! LOL. I looooooove Pinterest and I use it all the time for card ideas and techniques and creative inspiration. I also use it to keep track of my own cards. I have a Food & Recipes Board that has all sorts of yummy looking things pinned to it! Well....I finally made something. And, guess what? It was awesome! The hubs loved it and it's already going into the menu rotation at our house. For years I have been a 'non planning' grocery shopper. I... Continue reading

Hey friends! Checking in to say howdy and get caught up. How are you? How was your week? My week was very low key and quiet. Got some things done around the house and got some rest. It is warm here already - Summer is coming for sure. I've kind of been in a bit of a funk - just quiet and thoughtful...nothing wrong or anything. I feel like I have finally adjusted to my new life as a work at home person, but sometimes I get lonely and I miss having crazy co-workers and chit chat in my day!... Continue reading
