Hi friends! How's your week going? I hope it's been a good one so far! It's been a HOT one here in Sactown so I'm staying inside, in the craft room, with the fan blowing right on me! LOL. Oh, and I'm drinking lots of iced coffees!! That's my theme for today - coffee!! It's my day to post over on the Doodlebug Blog, and you know I always share my project here too. For this assignment we were able to use any collection of our choice, so I chose the super fun Cream & Sugar Collection that was released... Continue reading

Hey everyone!!! Nice to see you!!! I took a little unintended break the past week or so and just relaxed. My creative mojo has not been at peak form and I have just been super tired. So I gave myself a break. I didn't mean to, it just happened, and that's okay. Sometimes the ideas just stop flowing for a while and I've learned over the years not to force it, but to just rest my brain. I did some organizing and we went to the movies (yay!) and I got some other business things taken care of. How are... Continue reading

Hi crafty friends! Happy Monday - how are you?! Did you have a nice weekend? We had the absolutely most perfect weather here this weekend and it was nice to have all the windows open and a fresh breeze. We didn't do too much but that's okay. Haven't we all gotten used to not doing much?? Next week is exciting because I'm getting my hair cut! LOL. Looking forward to that and to going to the movies next Friday for the first time in a year and a half! Things are slowly opening back up and my hope is rising... Continue reading

Hey friends! I'm up on the Doodlebug Blog today sharing a trio of cards made with the Fairy Garden Collection! I used lots of papers, stickers and Doodle Pops to make some happy greetings for all occasions. I like to have cards ready to go if I need one! I made a happy birthday card, a thank you card, and a just because card! All three use the same card layout so they came together quick, fun and easy! The Doodle Pops are the featured element and all the papers are from the 6x6 paper pads to be the right... Continue reading

Hi friends! I have a super fun card to share with you today and I am starting a new partnership with a new company! Yeah! Today's card was made with super cute stamps from Jaded Blossom Stamps!

A little about Jaded Blossom - Michelle and Candace Started Jaded Blossom in 2011. They originally started out focusing on stamps for treat and favor making, and eventually added stamps for card...

Hey kids! Happy Saturday! I hope you have a happy, sunshiney weekend! Not sure what we're doing this weekend yet. Maybe a movie? The movie theaters finally opened up here and I've been dying to go to a show! This was a hard week on the pandemic roller coaster and we made it through. Seems like I've been up and down so many times in the past year+ and I'm just really ready to see my friends and not have to talk about masks and viruses any more. I mention that because I'm sure I'm not the only one feeling... Continue reading

Hello beautiful friends! It's Good Friday and it's a very special day. Sending you good wishes on this blessed and holy day today.

I'm so grateful that things are starting to return to normal and we can worship. I'm wishing you and your family a beautiful Easter weekend.
