Today we launch the newest collection of exclusive Simon Says Stamp products - and the collection is called Among The Stars! YAY! Stamps, dies, watercolor cards... and flamingos!

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
