Then some of my crafty friends came to visit Sacramento on Saturday and we spent all day together talking about stamping, and yarn, and we ate yummy food together.

Hi friends! Happy Monday! Are you ready to be creative this week? I am for sure! And it's Valentine's week so there's love in the air too! I hope you had a good weekend. I rested and did some crocheting. Most of our plans were for outside and everything got cancelled because of the rain. That's okay though. We need the water, and I never mind a rainy day. Actually rainy days are my favorite days. Here's to a great week! Today I'm excited to share a project made with the brand new stamp release from Spellbinders, and Artist Stephanie...

Hi friends! It's one week until Valentine's Day and my craft room has been a flurry of hearts and flowers lately! I really got into Valentine's Day this year for some reason. Made lots of cards and had fun doing it too! I am also inspired by the 30 Day Coloring Challenge which is really making me think, and getting me to create something each day. It's leading to all kinds of fun. I'm rediscovering some of my older stamps and dies and trying new/old techniques. This card I'm sharing today took on a life of it's own last weekend....

Hey everyone! Happy Friday! How are you?? Did you survive the polar vortex this week? I hope everyone is safe and sound and enjoying the start of a new month. I felt sort of guilty this week as the temps hit 70 degrees here, and I was outside taking pictures of apple blossoms and daffodils. We didn't even have Winter this year in Sacramento. I feel like it was hot all through Fall and then one day of cold, and it's warming up again. Definitely a different pattern this year. I am super grateful that I don't have to shovel...

Tonight I have crocheting/knitting meetup! The weather is sunny and the flowers are starting to bloom already around here. We saw some plum blossoms the other night already.

Hello everyone! Happy New Year again! A whole week into 2019! Hope your year is off to an awesome start! Thank you for all the kind comments on my last post. I love doing that blog hop every year. It's so positive and fun. My year has been pretty uneventful so far. In fact, I've been sort of lazy! My hubs had time off work and we really just slept in and did fun stuff together. I haven't been crafting too much. I finished two more crochet projects though! And I'm ready to kick it back into gear in the... Continue reading
