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

Hi crafty people! How are you? How's your week going? Happy Humpday! It's the 25th of the month, which means that it's time again for the awesome and inspiring Papertrey Ink Customer Blog Hop! I am always happy when I have time to enter this one. The hop is open to everyone and anyone! There is an inspiration image, and the only rule is that you have to use at least one PTI product (no problem at my house!!) The inspiration image this time spoke to me right away. I'll talk about that more later in my post. I hope... 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

Hi there my sweet creative bloggy friends! How are you? What's new with you?! I've been having a pretty quiet week so far, getting things done in the studio and chugging along! This Friday we are going to the Andy Warhol exhibit at our local art museum. My husband works a 9/80 schedule, so he has every other Friday off from work. We try to find fun things to do together and make it a date day! The weather is nice and it's time to get out and do stuff! I'm sharing a really special card today! One of my... Continue reading

Really looking forward to seeing her face and giving her a big ol hug. I will try to sneak in some behind the scenes... Continue reading

Hey there crafty pals! How is your first week of Spring going? And, can you believe it's Easter weekend already too? Oh man! Happy GOOD Friday! It is good indeed. The birds are chirping, the grass is green and it's time to celebrate the resurrection. I love Easter and all that it means as a Christian. Can't wait to go to church tonight and hear the message. Easter is my favorite holiday. I wish your family blessings, peace and love during this season! This past couple of weeks have been pretty busy around my house - many fun things going...

Hi friends! I've been away too long! Gosh, last week was a real blur. I had a few projects up on the Simon Says Stamp Blog and also on the SSS Instagram, but my blog was kind of neglected! I wasn't feeling that great last week and I was also super busy. A bad combination. I got some rest the later part of the week and was renewed in spirit by time with friends, so I'm good as ever now. Today I'm sharing something really COLORFUL and fabulous and fun! I was invited by the lovely ladies at WPLUS9 to... Continue reading

Hello crafty people! It's Monday already! Wowzers! The weekend flew on by and guess what? It rained all weekend here too! I think it's probably rained 8 out of the last 10 days.

Hope you had a nice weekend! Today is the release date for the newest, latest and greatest Simon Says Stamp April 2016 Card Kit! WOOOOOT! This card kit is in full bloom! Pretty... Continue reading

Hello!! We have had rain, rain, rain, rain here in Sacramento! Everything is fresh and green and soooo beautiful! It was sunny today, but the clouds are rolling back in for the rest of the week. I love rain, actually. And I especially love a Spring rain. It's so refreshing. Our neighborhood has lots of mature trees and people take pride in their yards. It is a pleasure to drive home and see everyone's hard work and God's hand with all the flowers. We have bunches of tulips now. The daffodils are already starting to fade. So this morning I...
