Heellllooooo frannnds! Happy Sunday! I just finished cleaning the kitchen after making a giant batch of blueberry pancakes and a slab of bacon. My tummy is full and I'm resisting a nap! However, lots of work awaits me in the craft room today! How is your weekend going? I hope you're enjoying a nice Fall weekend. We are having the strangest weather - it's been 80 degrees all the past week! We had to go out and do yard work and water the grass! Too weird! I really just want to wear a sweater and boots tho. Today is the... Continue reading

Hi everyone! I have a really fun project to share with you! I made it a while ago, but then the kit went out of stock so I wanted to wait to post it. But, it's finally ready to share! Yipppeeee! Something a bit different than a card. And something cheerful and Christmas-y too! I used supplies from Queen and Company and some other supplies from my stash to create a cute Christmas Recipes Book! It's going to be a gift and I'm so excited about how it came out. The book is a fun flip journal sort of book... Continue reading

Hi friends! Happy November! Haven't seen you in a few days! And now I'm a year older! My birthday was this past weekend and the hubs and I took a little getaway to Oregon for a few days. We got home late last night and now I have to go into catch up mode! I am speaking (about Pinterest) at a Wedding Planner Conference next week and I need to get my handouts ready and my presentation finalized. Can't wait for this fun event. November is my second favorite month (after October) and I am going to try to squeeze... Continue reading

HAPPY HALLOWEEN TO ALL MY GHOULFRIENDS! Hope you have a fun and cheerful day today and get lots of treats! This is kind of a strange thing, but I miss going to work at an office job on Halloween! I always loved driving to work on Halloween and seeing all the clowns and witches and minions driving to work... And I usually worked in an office that would decorate cubicles or have a costume contest... And candy! LOL. So Lucky and I will have a peaceful day in the studio today and then wait for trick or treaters later when... Continue reading

Hey guys! I'm here today with a fun post introducing a new paper/stamp/ink collection from Catherine Pooler! The entire collection is called Retro Winter, and the bundle I'm showcasing is called Feelin' Chilly! And guess what? It's about coffeeee stamps! LOL. It's perfect for me! I made two very different cards using the same stamp set and pretty patterned papers... Chilly fun for sure! In this collection, there are also four new ink pad colors. Gotta love it! It's a very interesting color palette - kind of mod and 60's in my opinion. I think Retro Winter is the perfect... Continue reading

Hi friends! Happy Friday! Woot! Hope you had an awesome week. I had a lot of fun this week taking over the Pretty Pink Posh Instagram Stories! Did you see my videos? I really enjoyed it. That's the second time I've done that for PPP. I'm thinking of maybe incorporating some weekly videos over on Instagram... Maybe talking about that weeks' projects, or showing a card up close. What do you think? Do you follow along with me or other crafters on Instagram? I'm pretty addicted. And I really love watching IG Stories! Seeing where people live, and their craft...

A small team of designers is launching them today with fun ideas and projects to show you all about them!

Hi crafty people!! How are ya? I'm popping in here on a Sunday to share cross stitch project! Woohoooo! Lately, I have become kind of obsessed with cross stitching! I used to embroider and cross stitch when I was a little girl - with my mom and grandma. But it has been YEARS (like a lot of years) since I picked up a needle and some floss. There are so many fun and fabulous patterns now. I have quickly become entranced by another hobby! LOL. One of the many reasons I love cross stitching is that it's easy to bring... Continue reading

Hey guys!! How is Wednesday already?? This week is flying by! It's my favorite month, and it always goes by too quickly! I'm trying to get out and do all the Fall things and enjoy the season! I finished my first Fall Cross Stitch project on Monday, and then yesterday I went to Hobby Lobby to brainstorm ideas to finish/frame it off. Man, was I overwhelmed... I felt like I fell down a black hole of craftiness. I didn't know if it was Halloween, or Christmas or what!! LOL! I found a cute little rustic frame thingee and I think... Continue reading

Howdy! Hope you're having an awesome week! I'm doing well and crafting up a storm. So many things I want to make and share this time of year. I'm spending a lot of time in my studio. Another round of organizing... It's getting hard core now! LOL. I feel like you have to do it a few times to get rid of everything. Right now it feels so good in here! I had to find a place to put my small (but growing) yarn stash, and my stitching... I'm tired of having old things that I never use. It's brutal... Continue reading

Trick or Treat! Give me something good to eat! How's your week going?? I'm having a busy and productive week so far. I am so happy to be doing all these Fall projects. This weekend I made homemade apple juice too. Oh man, it was so fresh and delicious! I've been decorating for Fall around the house. I'm terrible because when I put stuff away the year before I always think "I'll remember where I put that" but then I don't. I don't remember. Ugh! Please say I'm not the only one!! All the pumpkin candles have been burning and... Continue reading
