I am officially old.  This past week we received a graduation announcement for our great-niece.  How the heck did that happen?! Her school colors are patriotic blue/red.  Since the graduation is at the end of May, these colors are perfect.  Americana at it’s finest.   I made a tiny tassel with embroidery floss.  Since I […]

Mother’s Day has been an emotional one for the last 27 years.  That’s when I lost my own mom.  My Mother-in-Law passed in 2014.  For the last 5 years, I’ve just not wanted to make Mother’s Day cards. Then last year, it all changed.  Two of my daughter in laws gave us granddaughters, so now […]

~You & Me~

Today, I’m counting on my husband not reading my blog.  I’m sure he doesn’t!  Our 37th anniversary is fast approaching, so I put this little card together for him.  I have to say, my hubby keeps every single card I’ve ever given him.  Awwww! I picked the Farmhouse line of stamps/dies for this fun card.  […]


Coffee and I have a love/hate relationship.  While I enjoy my morning coffee on the patio, watching the sun come up, I secretly pray that the warm golden liquid would bring me energy.  Unfortunately, it just makes me sleepy.  Not fair. But, let’s face it… people love coffee.  I love sending coffee gift cards.  It’s […]

~*~*~ Let’s talk coffee.  I didn’t start drinking coffee until I was in my late teens.  Back then there were no fancy flavored creamers.  We used either half n half or milk.  Coffee then was more of a social drink, like over a conversation with my mom.  Then my hubby came along and he was […]

I sort of feeling I need to apologize or something for this week’s very simple card. You see, yesterday morning, my youngest son and his wife and baby girls put Colorado in their rear view mirrors and headed off to a new adventure in New Mexico.  You bet that this grammy is missing my kids/grands […]

Are you ready for new stamps and dies??!!  We have two sentiment stamp sets (Mercy and Grace), with just gorgeous scripture AND a new die set of crosses. We’re just a month out from Easter and these sets are so perfect for Easter (but also sympathy, thinking of you, etc). I chose to work with […]

Happy Monday! I can say that, as I am retired.  I can spend the entire day making cards or other art projects.  I like to paint, mixed media (I alter boxes in the steampunk fashion).  Every day is a new adventure. So… birthdays.  I have an extremely large family and I always INTEND to send […]

Greetings! Glad to be back after a brief tech problem.  It’s only been a couple weeks, but it feels like it’s been forever.  I know, logically, that computers, phones, TVs, and assorted other electronic devices are not made to last.  Remember when you could buy things like toasters, blenders, etc., that would last a lifetime?  […]

~Beloved Pet~

You know the old saying, “when it rains, it pours”?  Yeah, well that has been the story of our lives these past few weeks. In late January, we lost our brother-in-law.  He was a Vietnam Veteran whose health has suffered for many years, but it was still sudden and shocking to the family and friends.  […]
