Happy SEPTEMBER! YEAH! It's officially officially Fall in my opinion! LOL. Football started yesterday, PSL's are at Starbucks, and the oak tree across the street has started dropping leaves. It's my favorite time of year! We are enjoying a peaceful weekend at home so far. We both just really haven't felt like being out in the hustle and bustle. So I've been cooking, and crafting and watching movies. So grateful for this slightly cooler weather and for my husband and kitty to hang out with me. I started TWO cross stitch projects...so now I have lots of things going. I... Continue reading

Hi everybody! How's your week going? Are you ready for the long weekend? We have no plans yet. I have lots of stamping crafting projects that need to be done, so maybe I'll spend a lot of time in the studio! Plus, I started another crochet project AND a new Halloween cross stitch project. Yikes. But sometimes I'm in the mood for one thing over another, so I like having choices. LOL. Last week when I went to pick up the new Lawn Fawn release, I also bought some other cute things at my LSS. Today I'm sharing a cute... Continue reading

Now here we are the last week of August...and this coming weekend is Labor Day! Can you believe it? You know I'm ready because I love Fall! Last week was kind of crazy here on the blog!

Hey everybody! I'm here today with a non-paper crafting project! I'm finally getting around to posting my second baby blanket I crocheted! It was given to the recipient some time ago, but I never got around to posting it. I'm already making another blanket! This one is richer colors, for our family room. I think I'm obsessed with granny squares! I started crocheting about a year ago and it's just a wonderful side hobby for me! I love it because I can crochet in the family room watching tv, or bring a bag with me in the car, and of... Continue reading

Hellooooo creative friends! What's new?? I have a really neat project to share today. I've been anxious to post it, but had to get some other things out of the way first, and had to take and edit lots of pictures too! So today's finally the day to show you something I really love! This was what I call an 'all day' project in the studio. I love those! I put on some music, get out tons of supplies, and just slowly create, figuring it out as I go along! Sometimes I envision the card first in my mind and... Continue reading

Hi everyone! It's the last week of July already! WOW! I can't believe it. It's definitely Summer. It was over 100 degrees here this weekend and that always makes it seem more like July. We had a fun and relaxing weekend. We took a mini road trip to the ocean on Friday and I'll share some pictures below from our trip. We are so lucky to be able to drive to so many places in one day. Saves money on hotels and such. We love to escape to the water when it's hot here. We have our routine all set.... Continue reading

Good Day friends! I'm popping in with some Happy Mail for you today! How are you? I hope you survived the giant heat wave this past week. I can't believe the temperatures we were seeing on the news. Here in Sacramento it is often over 100 degrees, but this month we haven't had any days over 100 yet. I think we will today though. I hope my East coast friends are doing fine. Yuck!! I had a quiet weekend at home. I didn't feel good for a few days and just took a break and slept and relaxed with my... Continue reading

Hey Lady! That's something I say all the time to my friends! It's a term of endearment and excitement, usually when I'm greeting a friend! I am not a quiet person, so it's like HEY LADY!! Followed by a big ole hug! (I'm a hugger, and I'm squishy too)... So when I went to make this card, I had that in mind. I love these adorable ladybugs stamps and dies from Honey Bee Stamps. They are so much fun to color! Happy Saturday my little ladies! I hope you have a fantastic weekend planned. This card has a lot going... Continue reading
