Happy 4th of July Weekend! I get tomorrow (Friday) off work, so it's almost the start of a lovely Summer long weekend for me! How about you? What are your plans? I hope you have a wonderful time - whatever it is that you end up doing. I would love to barbeque and hang out and just enjoy the sunshine. We don't have any real firm plans, and I kind of like it that way. Life has been kinda hectic, so whenever I can grab some quiet time - I do! I have a really fun project today - I... Continue reading

Hi everybody! Happy Summer! It's officially the middle of Summer and there is a lot going on! Hope your week is going well. I'm excited for a three day holiday weekend. No big plans - the hubs and I are thinking of taking a photography class on Friday but we're still undecided. Something about it being 110 degrees outside kinda cooks my brain and slows me down! Do you have fun 4th plans?? Be sure to check in with me later in the week because I have a neat-o patriotic project to share! I am blogging today with some news... Continue reading

Hello! It's time for the Papertrey Ink Customer Blog Hop today! The inspiration image was such a good one this time, I just had to make a card! And, probably my favorite thing = Flowers + Stripes! A match made in heaven. This color scheme was one I would never use, but it ended up being Summer-y and classy and cool all at the same time. See what you think! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today. Have a blessed day! XOXO I used the Diagonal Stripes Cover Plate and the Oopsie Daisy dies. I also used... Continue reading

Seriously! It's Monday already? Did you have a nice Summer weekend with the longest day of the year? What did you do this weekend? We laid low and had a calm weekend. Lots of chores and I even took a nap on Saturday (I never do that!) Mr. Buddy got a nice bath and now he's all pretty and ready for Summer too. (yes my cat loves to have a bath!!) I'm trying to rest and enjoy and sloooooooow down. I made a couple of cards. One for today, and one for the PTI Customer Blog Hop on Thursday. Did... Continue reading

Hello crafty people! How are you this week? Whatcha craftin lately? I've been making a little of this and a little of that. Got a cool project to share with you for 4th of July....and some other stuff too. Lots going on at work and I'm just kinda tired this week. It's been over 100 degrees too, which really slows me down!

Hello stamping friends! Happy Monday to you! What did you do this weekend? I had a very nice, peaceful, crafty weekend. Slept in, spent time in the yard, spent time creating and laughing with sweet friends. All good stuff. Before I get too far into my post I really wanted to say thank you to everyone who has sent me a note, or an email of encouragement recently. I hit a rough patch a few weeks ago and I was really struggling with some things. Many of you reached out to me and I find that so thoughtful and touching.... Continue reading

Hi everyone! It's time for a really fun Reverse Confetti Blog Hop to start of this Summer week. The theme for today's hop is "Masculine - Anything but a card!" As you'll see, I couldn't resist and I made a card too. I am sharing a nice, masculine gift ensemble....just in time for Father's Day and Summer guy birthdays.

Hi friends.... I don't even know where to start to write this post.... Today I'm writing about my awesome stint as a designer for Taylored Expressions. I have been on the TE Design Team for over FOUR years! Wow! It has been four years of fun, creativity, friendship, and general awesomeness. All good things must come to an end, and it is time for me to say farewell to this chapter of my crafting life. When I say I don't know where to start, I really don't know where to start. I have so many good memories. Taylor was the... Continue reading

I am blogging today with some news and updates about my monthly Color Pop Feature over at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Blog!

Hey everyone! It's almost time for a long weekend! Hope all is well in your part of the world today. We have absolutely no plans for the long weekend, and guess what? I'm totally okay with that. I seriously need to recharge my batteries and sleep in - and hang with the hubs. Who knows what the weekend will bring. For now, I'm happy just knowing we have a holiday! Our American flag is already hanging out front and I already bought groceries too. Bring it! Thank you so much to everyone who has sent me an email, or a... Continue reading

Aloha! Are you guys ready for a little tropical spirit in a card? Well, that's what you're gonna get today! I'm back with another card I made for Reverse Confetti!

I am going to use these a lot - so many ideas going through my head. Hope you all had a very nice weekend. I used the pretty Pina Colada Quick Card Panels because they match... Continue reading

Hey crafty friends! I'm trying to hurry up and blog tonight before the power goes out again! SOOO weird, that we are having thunder and lightning storms here in Sacramento tonight. The power already went out once, and it's pouring rain right now! That isn't the norm around here... Kinda feels like the Midwest, not Northern California. LOTS of lightning! Poor Buddy went and hid in his kitty house in the studio and is in backwards, so all I can see is his furry rear end sticking out. Poor guy! The title of this post says it all... Blogging makes...

Hi there friends! How was your weekend? Hope it was beautiful and fun! We hit 90 degrees here in Sacramento this weekend. Whew. Yeah, not ready for that - not by a long shot! I sat out in the sun and got some Vitamin D and a bit of color on my face...and spent some quality time in the studio. I took Friday off from work so it was a long three day weekend for me. Just what the doctor ordered! What did you do this weekend? Today I'm sharing a project I made for the Taylored Expressions Blog last... Continue reading

Hellllloooooooo! Happy almost Friday! Hope you're having a great week! I think the week went pretty fast, and I'm super excited because I have a vacation day off from work tomorrow! I just felt like I needed a day to get caught up and rest. This old girl has been running pretty hard lately!! Looking forward to sleeping in and gettin' crafty. One thing I do that's weird is that I have a hard time stamping when I don't have gobs of time. So I get myself behind because I feel like I have to wait until the weekend to... Continue reading

Hello friends! Oh. My. Goodness. I have been so busy and so tired! Hardly been stamping at all because I'm too pooped out after work every night....and lots of fun on the weekends! This weekend was the big Rubber Stamp Convention in Sacramento and I always work the front desk taking the tickets and money. That way I can see EVERYONE as they come in! Did I see you? I want to take a minute to say something about a sad event from last week. My friend Diane announced that she is closing her amazing stamp/scrap store - Scrapbook Territory... Continue reading
