Hello Crafty Friends! I've missed all of you while focusing on some pressing family matters that pulled me away from sharing my passion for crafting. Never fear - I'm still here! Even better: a package arrived today with a brand new bottle of holographic glitter embossing power. I think we... Continue reading

My perfect birthday party would be held on a beach... somewhere not in Alaska. Lol! Our beaches are cold. ;)
Thank you Jill! I love love LOVE this technique. I was very surprised when I was able to use my Cricut with the foiled cardstock. Should work with any cutting machine.
This is one of my all-time favorite techniques! I love adding shimmer and shine to my projects and the faux metal look is really fun to work with. From shiny Christmas ornaments to steam-punk grunge, this is something every paper crafter should try at least once! You can use it... Continue reading

Thank you all for the encouragement and wonderful feedback! Reading all of your comments is truly the highlight of my day. ❤️ Joanne, we're practically neighbors with you over there in Canada!
Hi JM! I will do a blog post on how to add sides to the bags. Also, the Favor It Die #7 makes a little trey (kind of like a paper hotdog tray) that fits perfectly in the bottom of the 5.5" bag. There will be many many versions of these bags on my blog in the coming months! You can subscribe to my blog or check back here and I will follow up when I've posted instructions on creating the sides:
I really like the meal planning system! The detachable list is perfect and I love that it folds out until you're ready to use it. I love modular systems that are intuitive to use. I have a love-hate relationship with planners (I love to buy them and then feel guilty when I end up not using them.) This system looks like it might work for me though. Willing to give it a try!
I'm so honored to have been chosen as one of the 5 finalists for the Papertrey Ink Star Search video contest! I'm even more excited to finally be able to share all of my fun treat holder and gift bag ideas will all of my Crafty Friends! Continue reading

Shelly, it's not you. My feed is supposed to output to Mail Chimp and automatically send out an email. It's not working so I have to manually create an email today and figure out how to fix it. Ugh! Time I could spend crafting instead... lol!
Sorry for the confusion Sandy! 1/2 cup baking soda for the texture paste because otherwise it will run under the edges of your stencil. When you make the puffy snow, you want it to be more runny so it will not look stiff and crusty, so only use 1/4 baking soda for the snow. Hope that helps!!
It's so easy to make your own embossing paste for adding texture and dimension to your projects. Bonus: it puffs up when heated! Continue reading

Denise, I have a thing for snowflakes as well... no such thing as too many snowflake stamps & dies! :)
This is really stunning and perfectly executed!

Katherine, I was able to add you manually using the email address you included when you posted comments. You should get a confirmation in your email. Welcome to my blog!
I'm so humbled by the praise from all of you - all I can say is thank you for your encouragement and positive feedback! I'm so glad some of you noticed the sheet music, I was afraid it was too subtle. :) Marybeth, I am so flattered you would frame it if you got this card! I think I'd send it to you just because of that. I'm always worried people will throw away my handmade creations. Katherine, I'm honored to be your "favorite" from so many beautiful entries. *blushing and smiling with pride*

Eggs Benedict is my favorite breakfast so one Christmas morning my dad made it for me as a gift. The tradition has continued every year since then, even after he passed. We do not open Christmas presents until Christmas breakfast is over so we get to have that special family time first.
These are so perfect! My family loves to do holiday treats as gifts for our friends and large extended family. I can't wait to decorate with these!
