These new Doodle Cuts are so fun and fabulous! Cheerful, happy and sweet! Hope you enjoy today's projects! Here's a close up of the paper layers on the gift card holder.

HEEEELLLOOOOOO! Just like the card says! Hello friends! I have a bright and pretty card for you today! The idea came to me in my sleep the other night. I haven't been sleeping much lately but I'm laying there awake with all the ideas floating around my head... Hoping for the days when my anxiety rests and I can rest too. It's been a crazy year. I don't even know what else to say about it. Sleepless nights and crafty ideas I guess for now! Hope you are doing well and enjoying a nice weekend. I'm praying hard for sunshine... Continue reading

Hey guys! Popping in real quick today to share an organizing project!! I always have these grand ideas in my head but then I often put them aside and craft instead! A week or so ago I was watching a movie in the craft room and thought - yes - today's the day I'm going to finally make my Alphabet Die tag project!! I LOOOOVE alphabet dies and they are scattered around my craft room sorted by company, so sometimes I forget what I have. This project now hangs off a hook on my desk so I can grab it...

Hi everyone! I almost typed Happy Sunday....but it's Monday! It really feels like a Sunday - maybe because my husband is off work for President's Day....or maybe because I made us pancakes for breakfast! LOL. Anyhoo it's a nice gloomy rainy day and Lucky and I are getting caught up in the studio this afternoon. I hope you are doing well and are healthy and happy. Spring is arriving fast here in Sacramento. Our garden is blooming and we are sneezing... It's time for a new season, and some hope that we'll all be out and about soon. Just really...

Hi crafty pals! How are you today? I hope your week has started off on a good note! I have a busy week this week getting business-y things taken care of that were waiting until after the holidays. Feels like it takes a couple of weeks of the new year for everything to get back on track. Especially with this weird year, right?! I've been really organizing our home and getting rid of things. We got new fresh curtains for our kitchen and the whole place feels brighter. My husband painted my bathroom a pretty shade of green and that... Continue reading

Greetings and Salutations my dear crafty friends! Happy New Year's Eve 2020! I hadn't planned on posting a card today, or even saying anything at the end of the year.... But, my husband is repainting our bathroom today and he likes to work alone.... So I found myself in the craft room with Lucky, and the mood struck me to create a New Year Card. I have on some classical music and it's kind of gray outside. And it's weirdly quiet in our neighborhood today. In the quiet of my warm studio I created a card and thought about the...

Happy Christmas Eve! I woke up this morning feeling inspired to use some of my new Christmas supplies that haven't been inked up yet this season! My husband bought me several Tim Holtz stamp sets for my birthday and I was so sad that I never had time to use them. As I was having coffee, and contemplating putting all the crafting things away for the season, I decided to sit down and make one last tag. Peace on Earth to all of us this beautiful Christmas Eve. Blessings to you and yours. XOXO I have one last request for... Continue reading

Hi there crafty friends! Today's project is kind of a recipe, kind of a photo shoot, kind of a treat idea... One of my favorite treats at Christmas time is Peppermint Bark! As much as I love everything Pumpkin Spice in the Fall, I love everything Peppermint in the Winter! And, chocolate and peppermint is the best combination!! I usually make at least one batch of homemade Peppermint Bark each season. It's easy to share, and it lasts a while too! I just got this pretty new marble cake stand, and that called for a photo shoot! I've been really... Continue reading
