Hello and happy weekend! I hope you are all doing well and enjoying the peak of Summer time!

All of a sudden, friends are showing up in Sacramento for one reason or another...from Pennsylvania, from Oregon, from LA. Yes indeed. I am blessed. I can feel... Continue reading

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 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
