TLC380 ~ Either/Or, but Both is More Welcome, friends! It’s my turn to host this week’s Technique Lover’s Challenge.   I completely struggled with what I wanted to do.  Not that I had NO ideas, but I had too many ideas! So, this week’s challenge is to do either a triple easel card (I’ll give […]

Hi friends! Oh my.  It’s been an amazing day here in Colorado.  Highs near 60.  Sun shining like nobody’s business.   I hit a massive sale at Hobby Lobby (everything I bought was 50% off!).   Yet, I spent the better part of the day in the studio.   I’ve made quite a few valentines […]

Hello, Friends I will warn you right up front…. this post is going to be long and picture heavy.   I’ve been a busy girl today.     I hit the studio at about 8am this morning and finally emerged at 4:30 pm.   Um, pizza anyone? LOL   Sorry family, dinner was not on […]

Hi Friends 🙂 I have so many people in my life that need prayer right now.   A friend with a sick child.   A family member in crisis.   Another family member battling the effects of aging.  And yet another who is battling cancer.   These are just a very few of the people […]

Good morning, friends! Back in December, I posted a project (~ pretty packaging ~) that was a drawer box with monogrammed cards.   I had such a wonderful response to that project both here on my blog and on   A couple months back, Beate contacted me to do a tutorial for   […]
