Hi Friends! It’s my turn to host the Sketch Challenge on Splitcoaststamper, this week.   I made the sketch super flexible so that you all can let your imaginations run wild! Here it is… Normally I would “suggest” a place for ribbon and sentiment, but this week I’m leaving all that up to you! Here […]

Hi Friends! Let’s get right to the fun stuff, ok?   Last Saturday, the Stamp Simply Design Team did a product focus on velvet.   Each of us also  offered up the cards we made as a gift to one of our commenters.   I am happy to announce that Carla Suto (comment #9) is […]

Hi Friends! Way back in 2003, when I first began this hobby, I struggled to create anything that was unique.   I used the same sketch for nearly every card!  Then I was introduced to and my world turned upside down.  This was back in 2004, when the site was not near as large […]

Good day, friends! Well, we have our guest in the house and thoroughly enjoying catching up on everything that has happened in my husband’s home town over the last few years.  It’s great to have another female around, too!   My boys are chomping at the bit for their Grandma to make her famous chocolate […]

  Hello, friends. As Independence Day nears, I get a little melancholy about those in my family and friends who have fought to protect our Declaration of Independence and our Constitution. A wise person once told me that Patriotism was love of country, whereas Capitalism was the love of our government.  I definitely consider myself […]

Hello, friends! The last couple of days have been a huge blur.  Monday night around 9:30pm, I got a call from my son Noah saying that he was in a lot of pain.   He and a couple of his friends were up in Ft. Collins, about 20 minutes away.   I told him to […]

Yup, I’ve got the blues…. but not in a bad way 🙂 Although it is at least 20 degrees cooler this morning that yesterday morning.  And it’s raining, but that’s really a good thing as we definitely need the rain!   My blues, however, are in paper form! Since it’s such a indoor activity day, […]

Hi friends! This is going to be a quicky today as I have a “to do” list that is calling (read: screaming) my name.   I needed to get some stamping therapy in this morning though.    I combined yesterday’s color combo (Black, Cherry, Crumb) with today’s Sketch Challenge. Here’s what I came up with: […]

Hi friends! I have something really cool to share with you today.   But first, let’s talk about ribbon.   I think that most of the crafters I come across absolutely LOVE ribbon.   We buy it in hoards.   I have a ribbon cabinet that my husband made that is just exploding in ribbon…literally. […]

Hello ya’ll 🙂 After a yucky moody day yesterday, I decided that I had to MAKE today better.   I started out with a walk around our neighborhood, then my oldest son and I cleaned the garage.    I decided to keep it going, so I cleaned my studio and then being pleased with myself, […]
