Hi friends! When you read this, I will be in Phoenix at the Creativation Show! Yipppeee! I typed up this post so there would be a card to share while I was gone. Plus, I couldn't wait to share it! The other day I was taking pictures of lemons in my house (photographers do weird things like that) and the idea to make a lemon card popped in my head! I have had these AWESOME lemon dies on my desk for far too long and a fun idea came to me. I jammed into the studio, put on some tunes... Continue reading

Hi everyone! Happy Monday! Let's kick the week off right! I have two blog posts today - two very fun blog hops! Yippeeee! I have been SO sick the past couple of weeks. I had bronchitis and I actually lost my voice for a week! UGH! I'm on the mend now and happily talking away again. I hate being sick - I'm not very good at sitting still. I did read a ton of books, I guess that's the good part. It feels weird to me to be at home that many days in a row. Glad to be back... Continue reading

Merry Christmas from The Guess Family! With love and blessings to your family! 8 Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. 10 Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. 11 For there is born to you this day in the city of David...

Hi everyone! It's almost Christmas! Hope you've been having a wonderful season this year! Our holiday season has been very low key this year, and that's totally okay with me. I'm winding down from a hard year and trying to really give myself a break and not be too stressed out. I'm anxiously looking forward to a new year and a fresh start. Creatively I've been a bit burned out and I feel like I need a renewal and a rest! It gets like that from time to time, right? I have been making Christmas projects since June (that's how...

Hi friends! I've been a busy bee! How are you? The holiday season is rolling along towards us at a fast pace now. I'm trying to finish making Christmas cards so I can do the hard part (addressing them! LOL). That part takes forever! I need to get with the program and start this week. What have you been up to? Have you been crafting a lot? I've been spending as much time in the studio as I can. I love this cozy time of year. Kitty curled up in his bed in here, some tunes on, coffee in my...

Hey everyone! Fa la la la llamaaaaa! OMG this is so cute - this stamp set I'm sharing today! I have no good explanation, but lately I am obsessed with llamas! They're furry, and silly, and have the cutest expressions on their faces! The other day I even saw some on a ranch not too far from our house. (I couldn't get a llama selfie though - I tried!) For my birthday, my husband bought me some stamp sets I've been wanting, and the Pink Fresh Festive Llama stamp set was one of them! Now, you might ask, how does... Continue reading
