Hey friends! Happy weekend! What are ya doing? I'm having a super busy weekend (spending part of it at work boo) and I'm so excited to be hopping along today in the Papertrey Ink Customer Blog Hop for January! The theme for this month is "hearts" and that is right up my alley at the moment. I really enjoy making Valentine projects - they are so happy and feminine. When I saw the theme for the blog hop I got out one of my most favorite PTI stamp sets of all time - With all my Heart. Man, I love... Continue reading

Hey friends! I'm here today to share a happy card that I made for the MFT Color Challenge! When I popped over to the MFT blog and saw this beautiful color combination, I wanted to play right away!

CLICK HERE to see the MFT Challenge blog post, and all the other entries! Here is my shabby chic version of that gorgeous color combo! I used pretty patterned papers and got... Continue reading

Hello crafty peeps! Happy Saturday! What are you up to this fine January weekend? Are you crafting? Resting? Finally taking down Christmas decorations? I hope you're having a great Saturday so far. I am still trying to get back into my routine and my real life after being away for a week at CHA. I only went to work on Thursday and Friday - but it seemed like five days! LOL. My crafty mojo has not returned. I have tons of ideas swirling around in my head, but nothing is coming to fruition yet... Hmmmm. Yep, this happens from time... Continue reading

Oh my goodness! FIVE YEARS! How can that be? How is it possible that I started this journey five years ago already? And who would have known how much fun this would be!? Here it is time to celebrate my FIVE YEAR blogaversary and do my end-of-the-year wrap up for 2014. I love doing this every year, and it helps me reflect on the past years, and also chronicle stats and numbers. SO fun!

Hey crafty friends! Did you survive Christmas in one piece? Have you recovered yet? Lol. I hope you all had a marvelous holiday and are doing well. With New Years right around the the corner next week I figured I'd better get going on some crafty projects to celebrate 2015! This card was inspired by the AMAZING new paper collection from Teresa Collins that I bought at Joann's last week. It is soooo gorgeous - lots of gold with bright white and aqua. Bam. SO pretty. Then I saw Linda's beautiful card for the AAA Card Challenge and the theme... Continue reading

I hope you are surrounded by those you love and that you are enjoying the magic of the holiday wherever you are! What a wonderful day - to remember the birth of Jesus and to relax in the company of friends and family. It's perfect! We are having a low key holiday at our house and I am very happy about it. So much going on the past few weeks, and now the holiday is here and *poof*... Continue reading

Today we'll get back into the holiday frenzy, but a break from the outside world was needed. Hope you are doing great! Today's card was inspired by everything Ralph... Continue reading

Hey everyone! ONE WEEK UNTIL CHRISTMAS!!! DON'T FREAK OUT!!! Oh yeah, too late! My to do list is way longer than my days, and time is a runnin' out! Do you say it every year too? "Next year I'm starting early!" Okay, so you guys have to remind me in August to start working on things! LOL. Why is there never enough time to just enjoy the magic of the season? Everyone is rushing around with a sad face and driving too fast and looking frazzled. I am making myself be mindful each day of the reason we celebrate Christmas... Continue reading

Hi everyone! Happy Monday! Wow, a lot has happened since I last blogged and I have lots to get you caught up on. I hope your week is going well, and I'm sure everyone is knee deep in holiday preparations. I literally cannot believe Christmas will be over and done 10 days from now. Sheesh. Every year...I'm behind. It's not like the date is a surprise or anything! I am just never ready. I still have not sent out Christmas cards or started wrapping presents! Last night I did attend a really wonderful Christmas concert at church with one of... Continue reading

Hey bloggy friends! I hope you are having a smashing week! Today is my hubs' birthday so a big shout out to my better half today! Woot Woot! Love you honey! Later tonight we'll be grabbing some dinner together and then on Saturday I think we'll make a trip to San Francisco to celebrate some more. It's raining cats and dogs (and hamsters and everything else) this week. I know we need the rain but this is kind of crazy. Our poor state has been very dry for so long...Now it's coming all at once. Oh my goodness. How can... Continue reading

Hi Peeps! Happy Weekend! Yesterday I had the very distinct pleasure of hanging out with some awesome crafty girls here in my local area. We were extended a lovely invitation to come to the beautiful home of the super fabulous Regina Easter for a day of stamping, crafting, fellowship, and tasty treats. I had the best time! Isn't it wonderful when we can all get together around the circle of stamping and just laugh and enjoy each other's company? Yes, indeed! Crafty girls rock! My friend Ashley was there and my friend Lezlye, and I met some fab new friends... Continue reading

I'll start this post by saying I wish we weren't having a big giant blog hop today... Because the reason we are having this (amazing and fabulous) blog hop is to honor, thank, remember, and shout out to our favorite craft magazine that is closing its doors forever. I remember two weeks ago when I started seeing the buzz on Facebook that our beloved PaperCrafts & Scrapbooking was to be no more, I was really sad. I will miss it. I will miss the beautiful projects made by my crafty friends, the awesome go-to gals, I'll miss the fun editor's... Continue reading

You know how you say 'yes' to lots of cool things and you think 'oh, I have lots of time to make that!" But then one day (that day being today for me) you go "oh crap! I have to make a bunch of projects and I'm really behind!" LOL. Soooooo, I have been totally enjoying the creative process today and it's been wonderful.

Hi everybody! I'm back from my peaceful, restful, awesome vacation to Oregon - and today was my first day back at reality, I mean work. Whew, at least Monday's over! It's so hard to regroup and get down to work after being carefree for an entire week. I think I hurt my brain today! LOL. Anyhoo, I couldn't wait to get home and craft and make something to share with you. I've had this idea in my head for a few days. The project was inspired by my very favorite Christmas candy treat - Peppermint Bark squares from Ghirardelli. YUM.... Continue reading
