Hi friends.... I don't even know where to start to write this post.... Today I'm writing about my awesome stint as a designer for Taylored Expressions. I have been on the TE Design Team for over FOUR years! Wow! It has been four years of fun, creativity, friendship, and general awesomeness. All good things must come to an end, and it is time for me to say farewell to this chapter of my crafting life. When I say I don't know where to start, I really don't know where to start. I have so many good memories. Taylor was the... Continue reading

Hi everybody! What are you up to? We are having a relaxing weekend here in Sactown. The weather is awesome and it is just really nice to spend time with the hubs. Later today we are going over to our local outdoor mall to see the Budweiser Clydesdale Horses - that should be pretty fun! I am blogging today with some news and updates about my monthly Color Pop Feature over at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Blog! Today is the post for new ink color #3, which is the beautiful Fossilized Amber. You know if it's Simon Says Stamp,... Continue reading

Hey everyone! It's almost time for a long weekend! Hope all is well in your part of the world today. We have absolutely no plans for the long weekend, and guess what? I'm totally okay with that. I seriously need to recharge my batteries and sleep in - and hang with the hubs. Who knows what the weekend will bring. For now, I'm happy just knowing we have a holiday! Our American flag is already hanging out front and I already bought groceries too. Bring it! Thank you so much to everyone who has sent me an email, or a... Continue reading

Aloha! Are you guys ready for a little tropical spirit in a card? Well, that's what you're gonna get today! I'm back with another card I made for Reverse Confetti! I'm having SO much fun being a guest designer for them this month. Yay! Their stamps are too much fun - and I was especially smitten with this set - called Pineapples a Plenty. I am going to use these a lot - so many ideas going through my head. Hope you all had a very nice weekend. I used the pretty Pina Colada Quick Card Panels because they match... Continue reading

Hey crafty friends! I'm trying to hurry up and blog tonight before the power goes out again! SOOO weird, that we are having thunder and lightning storms here in Sacramento tonight. The power already went out once, and it's pouring rain right now! That isn't the norm around here... Kinda feels like the Midwest, not Northern California. LOTS of lightning! Poor Buddy went and hid in his kitty house in the studio and is in backwards, so all I can see is his furry rear end sticking out. Poor guy! The title of this post says it all... Blogging makes...

Hi there friends! How was your weekend? Hope it was beautiful and fun! We hit 90 degrees here in Sacramento this weekend. Whew. Yeah, not ready for that - not by a long shot! I sat out in the sun and got some Vitamin D and a bit of color on my face...and spent some quality time in the studio. I took Friday off from work so it was a long three day weekend for me. Just what the doctor ordered! What did you do this weekend? Today I'm sharing a project I made for the Taylored Expressions Blog last... Continue reading

Hellllloooooooo! Happy almost Friday! Hope you're having a great week! I think the week went pretty fast, and I'm super excited because I have a vacation day off from work tomorrow! I just felt like I needed a day to get caught up and rest. This old girl has been running pretty hard lately!! Looking forward to sleeping in and gettin' crafty. One thing I do that's weird is that I have a hard time stamping when I don't have gobs of time. So I get myself behind because I feel like I have to wait until the weekend to... Continue reading
