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

Hi friends! I'm super excited to be sharing a card with you today as part of the Hero Arts "My Monthly Hero" Card Kit release for April. This kit is SO pretty!

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

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...

Hi there! Happy March! Yep, first day of a new month already! New beginnings, fresh start.... We spent a lot of time this weekend getting our front yard 'spring ready.' My husband fertilized and mowed and cut everything. I pruned our hydrangeas and camellias. We have a TON of daffodils blooming. We have this nice brick planter box that goes the full length of the front of our house and the hubs planted 200 bulbs in there. It's so fun to see what comes up. Right now it's daffodils, but I can see some tulips poking up too. We are... Continue reading

Hey! I'm just getting this post done right in time before the month is over! Whew! It's been a little while since I made a Tim Holtz Tag and this is my first one for 2016! Yipppeee! I loved all the cool techniques in this one and had a fun time making it over at Richele's house one lovely afternoon. I didn't make it a Valentine theme, since Valentine's Day is over, but I used all the fab ideas Tim shared in his post. My favorite thing? Embossing paste with gold embossing!!! Are you kidding me!? Where has this been... Continue reading

Good morning and happy Saturday! Just a really quick post today - because I'm so excited about this project! How was your week? I hope it was great! The hubs and I got our taxes done yesterday and I breathed a huge sigh of relief....maybe you heard it? LOL. I am always so glad when that is over for the year and that stress is off my shoulders. After our tax appointment, we went and had a very nice celebratory pizza luncheon at this cool, hip place that I've been wanting to try and then we just ran errands. I... Continue reading
