Hi everybody! Happy Saturday! I've been in my craft room ALLLLL day today and only emerged to make dinner and then came straight back in here! 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. Getting caught up on stamping, and blogging and planning for... Continue reading

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

Hello everyone!!! I'm still on vacation at the beach in Oregon, but on Tuesday I did some stamping and it was wonderful! I set out all my stuff on the big table in front of the windows and just kind of colored, and relaxed. I didn't bring a ton of stuff with me, but I did bring the SUPER cute new Santa stamps from My Favorite Things, and of course, ALL my markers! I also brought some cute Doodlebug papers and I had just enough supplies to make a couple of happy and cheery Christmas cards. It's time to get... Continue reading

Hi sweet bloggy friends! This post doesn't have a card or a project, but I really felt the need to reach out to everyone today... Today is my 50th birthday! Wow. There, I said it out loud. I have been in the 'freak out' stage of this for a few months now, and with the day's arrival, I guess I will have to move into 'acceptance' mode. I don't feel 50 on the inside... Sometimes my bones feel 50, but I still feel like a crazy kid most of the time. It's only a number... That's what everyone keeps telling... Continue reading

Hi! Happy Friday and Happy Halloween! I hope there are many bite-size candy bars in your future! LOL! This is a very fun and happy Friday indeed for me! After work today, I am on vacation for a week to celebrate my (ack) 50th birthday and I literally cannot stand it! We have a fun trip to the Oregon coast planned and I need to finish packing before we leave at o dark thirty tomorrow morning! Before we start moving on in the crafting calendar towards Christmas, thought I'd share one more Halloween card with you. I was totally inspired... Continue reading

Hi there and happy Saturday! It's time again for the Papertrey Ink Customer Blog Hop! For October, there were several color recipes to choose from - with pretty inspiration images. I had a really hard time choosing which one to use! I decided upon the one that had a pretty, glittery bowl of sparkly ornaments in pastel shades.... Then I scurried off to the PTI corner of my craft room and just kept picking things out! I am sure I used about 10 products for this card. Really - too much fun! Here is my sparkly Christmas village card: Instead... Continue reading

Hi friends! Hope your week is going great! I'm popping in today to share a fun snowman card I made using gorgeous products from Simon Says Stamp!

Hellllooooooo! It's been a long week and I have missed crafting and blogging! I got up early this morning and headed into the craft room and made this card before we started out for a long, fun day! Just now home and posting this! The hubs and I went on a movie-lunch-mall date today! Just what I needed! And, I got a massage (really what I needed)...and I spent a whole wad of cash at Sephora! What's better than that?? Nothing! We went to see "Gone Girl" and it was REALLY good!! it doesn't hurt much to look at Ben... Continue reading

Hey friends! I'm back from Iowa! (see bottom of my post for more deets) and spending some time in the craft room again! So I took yesterday off work to regroup from my trip, and I needed to get crafty! I have lots and lots of Halloween ideas in my head and I have to make some stuff! LOL. For today's project I used the uber cute Simon Says Stamp dies and stamp sets to make a pair of cute Halloween cats! I stamped and colored my spooky kitties with my Copic Markers.

Helloooooo there! How are you? How is your weekend going so far? Mine has been pretty busy and fun actually! I cannot believe it's almost five o'clock Sunday night and another weekend is almost over. Dang. How does time go so fast? And I have to go make dinner after this. Anyhooo... Yesterday among other errands I picked out new eyeglasses. That is so hard, isn't it? Such a big decision. I had about 20 pairs all laid out in front of me...and finally myself, hubs and the sweet lady at the optician's chose these frames. They look like lace!... Continue reading

Howdy! It's time for one of my favorite things! The Papertrey Ink Customer Blog Hop! Yeah! I missed last month's hop because I was so busy and never got the time to make a project. So, this month I am all over it! I instantly loved the inspiration image and the pretty colors (see photo below). And, this truly was a color 'challenge' for me - combining lots of colors that I don't normally put together. This hop gave me the perfect chance to use the gorgeous Make It Market Kit with the watercolor roses stamps. OOH LA LA. I... Continue reading

Happy Saturday! WOOOO HOOOOOOOO! Yes! I'm all about sleeping in, crafting, and college football today! OMG I needed a weekend. How about you? Hope you had a good week and that your weekend is off to a smashing start. You know I have been in the Fall mode lately - lots of leaves and seasonal themes. Today when I sat down to make something I thought 'how can I maybe make something a little bit different for Fall?' So it came to me! A Fall bouquet of flowers! I love it when people make those pretty arrangements with flowers and... Continue reading

Where do I begin today.... I'm tired? No, that's no good. But it's true. I'm a little worn down around the edges lately and trying to get my groove back. It's just a phase I guess, and we all have 'em. I am a really happy-go-lucky sort of gal who always likes to keep it positive and optimistic. This past week has tested me, though. I'm walking on through it, with the help of God. He is forging me into something stronger and I feel it as sure as anything I've ever felt. So, today I'm keeping it low key...stayed...

Hi peeps! We interrupt this regularly scheduled Fall programming to bring you some more watercolor butterflies! LOL. I know it's not really an Autumn thing, but I really wanted to share this card with you! I made it a while ago, but I had to wait to post it until the person got it in the mail! Hee hee. Super stealth right? You know that I'm seriously crazy for WPlus9 stamps. Well, these new butterflies are a MUST HAVE! I had a great time coloring these pretties.... Remember to go check out the WPlus9 channel on YouTube to see how... Continue reading

Hello! I'm back today with more Fall crafting craziness! I stayed up late last night stamping and relaxing. Really what I needed. I worked so many hours this past week and I was brain dead Friday night when I came home from work. The one sure fire way to get me back in my groove is to spend the day (and night) crafting. (And watching college football) I have some cool things in the works to share later. I started Bible Journaling and did my first page yesterday. (You can see a sneak peek on Instagram) I will probably write... Continue reading

Hey friends! What's shakin'? Hope you're having a great week. It's flying by, isn't it, with the holiday this week and all. I'm ready for another weekend - how about you? One of my favorite things to look forward to at the beginning of each month is the new Tim Holtz Tag! I love the 12 Tags of 2014 so far, don't you! I couldn't wait to see the one for September, and Mr. Holtz did not disappoint! I made my tag right away this month, because last month I ran out of time and never got it done.... I...

Howdy friends! Hope you're having an awesome Labor Day weekend! It's September 1st, so I'm gonna go ahead and call it Autumn! YEAH! Happy Fall everyone!! If you've followed me for a while then you KNOW that Fall is my very favorite time of year. I love the cooler weather, cozy sweaters, apples, leaves, hot coffee drinks, football, my birthday, my wedding anniversary, pumpkin flavored anything...you get my drift! So, as soon as the calendar turns over from August to September I say it's time to start Fall crafting!! If it wasn't 98 degrees here yesterday, I might just bust... Continue reading
