Hi everyone! Hope you're enjoying a peaceful Memorial Day Weekend. I can't believe it's the end of May and the start of Summer already. What a strange year it's been already. We totally missed out on Spring. We are of course, spending the long weekend here at home. How are you? How are things where you live? Here in Sacramento things are starting to slowly open up and it feels a tiny bit more normal to be out doing errands and things. I'm so grateful for that. I hope you and your families are doing well. It's been a while... Continue reading

Hi creative and crafty pals! It's time to post another card... How are you holding up? I hope you're doing okay and staying healthy and happy. I'm starting to fade and burn out, if I'm keeping it real. My positive attitude is now not quite so steady. I'm worn out and weary - tired of the anxiety and the unknown. It's truly been a test. I can feel the weight of knowing that we will all be so different once this is over. I'm sending each one of you a virtual air hug right now. No matter how you're doing,... Continue reading

Helloooooo my sweet and crafty friends! Happy to see you here on this Monday! I am SOOOO happy to finally be sharing this post with you. It took me forever to edit all the pictures and get this one ready. I love how this project came out. I tried something new to me that I've been interested in forever. No line water coloring! And I used some brand new tools too. I have a lot to tell you about in this post. I am a convert to this technique already and excited to try more images. I used one of... Continue reading

Hey everyone! Happy Saturday! I'm popping in with a quick blog post to share something cute and fun!! The other day Taylor was doing a Facebook Live and she used this older stamp set and I was like "I LOVE that stamp set!" So I thought I would go through my photos and find some of my projects I've made over the years and share them with you! This is hands down my favorite cupcake stamp set from any company!! And as you'll see, I love to pair it with the Sprinkles Embossing Folder. For five weeks I have been... Continue reading

EDITED 4/19 - MY LUCKY WINNER IS LYNDA P! Thanks for all the kind comments!! Hey everybody! How are you doing? How was your Easter? We had a super mellow day at home (of course) and watched tv and crafted most of the day. I made a spaghetti dinner! What a weird Easter - one we will remember. I was so sad not to be able to go to church and sing and see the beautiful flowers and all the cute kids in their nice outfits. Easter's my favorite holiday and this one just passed on by with no fanfare.... Continue reading

Hi friends! Happy Friday! Happy GOOD Friday! It's a blessed and beautiful day indeed! I hope you have a beautiful Easter weekend this weekend, as we all try to make the most of the holiday. We'll be watching church online all weekend and having a backyard party with just the two of us. It's going to be a gorgeous weekend here in Sacramento. Sending love your way. There was a brand new release yesterday from Hello Bluebird. I was lucky enough to have Kaydee mail me some of the stamp sets early so I could make a project to share... Continue reading

Hi everyone! Happy Palm Sunday, and Happy Holy Week! I sure do miss going to church and really am going to miss it this week especially. This morning I got up and watched church on my phone in the craft room. Um, okay, we're doing things a little differently now right? I was happy to hear the music and even had a little tear in my eye. I will be so happy when we can all get back to normal things again... Wishing you a blessed and beautiful week. Easter is my favorite holiday and I will try to make... Continue reading

Hey friends! It's almost the weekend... Wait, what day is it?? The only way I am keeping track of days lately is that my husband is working from our dining room so I know it's the weekend when he's not buried in his laptop! Otherwise.... How are you holding up with being sheltered at home? I have good days and bad days. I'm trying not to think about it and keep busy here at home. Today was a brilliant day to go for a walk. I've been cooking a ton, too. Trying recipes and taking my time in the kitchen.... Continue reading

Hi crafty friends! Guess what? It's Spring outside! Even though we're not out doing all the spring things...we can still craft for Spring! I have been making lots of cheerful, colorful greetings... Maybe trying to cheer myself up! I'm drawn to critters lately too! Lots of coloring. Because coloring totally gets my mind off of things. I love to put on music in the craft room and lose track of time and color. I hope all of you are doing well when you read this note. Thinking of you and wishing you the best during this strange time in life.... Continue reading

Hi there crafty friends! How are you doing? How are you holding up to all the crazy news in the world today? I have to admit I've had my bad days lately. All of this is so stressful and I am a worrier by nature anyway. My husband is working from home and that means 24 hour togetherness....We are doing good together but I am very used to time alone!! Lots of lessons in patience and grace right now. Yesterday I drove to the park and read a book under the trees and it was marvelous to be out in... Continue reading

Hello my sweet friends. How are you?? Like, really, how are you? I'm freaked out, to be honest. I feel weird. This is the strangest time ever. I have super high anxiety and I am so worried for my friends who own their own small businesses. Not to mention being freaked out by this virus and what it might do. I honestly don't know what to think. Yesterday, my husband's work finally sent them all off to work from home. So now here we are, me, Lucky and hubs... Now what? I guess I'll keep crafting and try not to... Continue reading

Hi there everyone! Whew. How are you? Like truly, how are you? Things are weird right now, and I haven't left my house in a week. Not sure how to correctly process everything that's happening in the world so I'm just trying to stay positive and creative. I hope that whatever's going on with you - that you are good, and healthy. One good thing about being crafty is that we have a LOT of things to do when we're stuck at home, right? Silver linings and all that. I was supposed to go to a three day creative class/workshop...

Hi there my creative and crafty friends! Spring has sprung and we sprang forward, and here it is Monday again! We had a giant rain storm on Saturday and I spent all day in the studio. I LOVE the rain!! Makes everything so fresh and pretty. Do you know that we went the entire month of February with ZERO rain here in Sacramento? That is very odd. I was happy to see that water comin' from the sky!! I am participating in the Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge so my creativity is flowing! Are you joining in?? You can... Continue reading

WAHOOOOO! It's Friday! Hope you had an amazing week everyone! I got in some creative time finally, later in the week, and have a fun card to share today! I colored the image for Instagram for the 30 Day Coloring Challenge...and then made this clean and simple card. This card is perfect for a crafty girlfriend. So happy and cheery, with loads of color. It was so relaxing to color these pretty pencils. I used some new favorite stamps from Taylored Expressions and my trusty Copic Markers. The card is pretty simple - for me especially! The card base is... Continue reading

Hey friends! Well, January took forever to go by this year, but February went past in a hot minute! Dang! Happy March! We are knee deep in election primary season here in California and I'm an election officer so I'll be working 10 hours tomorrow and 15 hours on Tuesday! Yeeks! I have to remember to go to be early tonight! (not easy for this night owl). I've been Spring cleaning and organizing and getting back in the swing of things in the craft room. I'm also trying to be super conscientious about using my new supplies instead of hoarding... Continue reading
