A Bag Full of Swag

One of the fun perks of being a Stampin’ Up Demonstrator and going to conventions is all the free swag that you come home with.  When I registered, I got this box - It’s a beautiful box...but what was inside was even better! The box contained a reversable canvas bag (and we needed this each… Continue reading A Bag Full of Swag

Birthday Cheers!

Get ready for another birthday card because it’s still birthday week on my blog.  I’m in Orlando, Florida, celebrating Stampin’ Up!’s 30th birthday along with about 7,000 other crafty women.  You can almost feel the creativity oozing out of the convention center.  And let me tell you that the Orange County Convention Center is HUGE!… Continue reading Birthday Cheers!

Perennial Isn’t Just For Flowers

When I’m planting flowers in the spring, I always look for the perennials....those flowers that will come back year after year.  I feel like I am getting more for my money if I don’t have to continually buy all new flowers every year.  But because I have such a black thumb, it’s always a guess… Continue reading Perennial Isn’t Just For Flowers

It’s Fall!

It’s now November and we’ve got lots of leaves in our yard.  We have several River Birch trees and they shed leaves like there is no tomorrow.  The leaves don’t change the beautiful shades of red, yellow and orange.....they just start turning brown and dropping like flies.  No matter how much you rake them up… Continue reading It’s Fall!

Halloween, Paper Pumpkin, Seasonal - Fall

Fall is time for Pumpkins….Paper Pumpkins too!

Paper Pumpkin is a monthly  papercrafting kit… Continue reading Fall is time for Pumpkins….Paper Pumpkins too!

My List is Long

I’ve got a list a mile long of things I need to do, cards I want to make, blog posts I need to write.  Sometimes it seems like the more I cross off my list, the more things get added.  Santa’s list is always long and he always seems to be able to deliver all… Continue reading My List is Long

A Wish for Snow….

I currently live in Virginia..,not in the mountains in the southwestern part of the state, but close to the coast...just a few miles from the beach, so we don't get much snow. I'm one of the few who actually WANT it to snow, but sadly it just doesn't happen much here. So I live out… Continue reading A Wish for Snow….
