Good morning friends! Happy Monday! Hope you have a nice day...and a nice week! I finished this card late last night and just got the photos taken, and couldn't wait to share it with ya! We had a fun and mellow weekend. We went to see Doolittle at the movies and it was so cute and fun. I am a huge Robert Downey Jr. fan so it was a treat for me. It was a light-hearted movie that made us laugh so I call it a win. I love how all the movie theaters have recliners now. OH man, how... Continue reading

Greetings! I'm back from a wonderful and fantastic trip to Arizona for Creativation 2020!! It was such a good trip - I am happy and renewed and inspired by all the sights and lovely people. My whole trip went smoothly and was super fun. My flights were on time and smooth. I rented an Air bnb for the first time and loved it! The Creativation Show was pretty quiet this year. It seems to get smaller every year. I saw so many of my crafty friends and got so many hugs and had so many laughs. My feet hurt, but... Continue reading

I like to organize and nest in January and I've already spent a lot of time in the studio in 2020. I have lots of fun things to share in the next two weeks... Continue reading

Hello my dear, sweet, crafty friends! Popping in today with my last two Christmas cards for 2019! Can't believe it's here! Time to wind down things and be in the moment and enjoy these last few days before Christmas. Really get into the meaning of it all and spend time with friends and family. I start to mentally shift this week each year - from hustle and bustle - to quiet and calm. Remembering the reason for the season. Whatever is going to get done is done, and whatever isn't done, well it just isn't going to get done. And... Continue reading

Hello friends! December is rolling along, and I'm frantically trying to make all the ideas that are inside my brain! I'm going to run out of time! Eeeeks! This morning I went through all my Christmas bins (there's a lot!) and sorted through things and re-discovered old favorites! Dang I have a lot of stuff! Twenty Five years worth! I also made my tiered tray for Christmas time and it has gnomes in it! So adorable. Are you on team gnome? I love them! It's foggy and dreary, but we are warm in the craft room today. My favorite kind... Continue reading

Hi everybody! Happy day-after-turkey Day! How are you? How was your holiday? We had a very nice and calm day here at our house. We started decorating the house for Christmas and my husband decorated my car too! YAY! It's full on pedal to the metal Christmas mode now! I hope you had a great Thanksgiving! Are you going shopping today? We are! In the past we were those crazy people who got up at 3am and went shopping on Black Friday. But now, we are more reasonable and go out later. Mostly because there isn't much 'stuff' that we... Continue reading
