This week I was told by my doctor to rest.  I almost laughed.  Birthday party on Saturday.  Birthday on Tuesday.  Thanksgiving…. and the list goes on.  Yes, I tend to overextend myself.  I end up cancelling things or not sleeping.  Either way is bad. So I had this card in mind.  The penny slider card […]

Christmas is sneaking up on me… or more appropriately, it’s barreling down on me like a locomotive.  It’s not like it falls on a different day/month each year.  I do a great deal of THINKING about it, then wait until it’s time to go full tilt getting things done. For that reason, I absolutely LOVE […]

~Peace on Earth~

I don’t know about you, but I am so far behind in my Christmas crafts.  Crafters may not understand how you can be behind with 44 days left until Christmas.  I have a total of THREE Christmas cards made, so far.  I need at least thirty, many of which need to be mailed out to […]

I believe I’ve fallen into the ‘Halloween is over, it must be Christmas’ trap.  For the first time in longer than I can remember, I’m nearly done with my Christmas shopping.  We have 5 family birthdays in November.  I haven’t even started to think of those. Today I really needed to do something simple.  When […]

~Prayer Purse~

  This week, the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store designers are on a quest of anything but a standard card.  I always love when i’m challenged.  Now this project is not new to me.  I’ve made several of these little prayer purses over the last few years.  Every time I share them I get a great […]

My favorite color is red.  But the minute Autumn arrives, my favorite colors are brick red, deep orange, summer yellow, and chocolate brown. I miss the wide array of fall colors we use to get back in New York.  Don’t get me wrong, Colorado has the beautiful yellow of the aspen trees, but not the […]

  ~*~*~ The “S” word was tossed out during this morning’s weather forecast. Let me put this straight.  I love to LOOK at the snow, but I don’t like to be out in it.  I’ve spent the last 26 years in high snow areas.  I have done my due diligence.  Now I want to be […]

~Enduring Love~

I get the feeling that Fall/Autumn is going to be a short-lived season this year. To the north of us (Montanta) is already getting a lion’s share of Winter weather, just a week into Autumn.  It showed at the highest peeks here in Colorado, too.  Gladly, it’s still in the 70s, low 80s, here. One […]

    It’s National Coffee Day!! You can bet I’m drinking my coffee right this minute.  Normally, I would have my coffee on the patio watching the sunrise.  My favorite way to start a day. I have a confession to make.  Up until a couple weeks ago, I had never had a Pumpkin Spice Latte.  […]

The Birch in Fall

Welcome to Fall, Ya’ll! Fall is leaps and bounds above all other season, in my opinion.  I love the cool crisp mornings, the warm breezy days and the colors all around.  I also love sleeping with at least a small blanket and a fan on low.  I don’t even mind the fall snow…. as long […]
