I was looking for something different to do with my limited stamp sets, so I decided that I needed to try and do some different types of folding my cards. So instead of the traditional side or top fold, I branched out a little and tried something new. Laying down flat it just looks like… Continue reading Folding Fun With Free as a Bird
I’m still in Korea....and I’ve been doing a little shopping. It’s not clothes, trinkets or souvenirs that draw my eye into the tiny little shops....it’s the card’s and the paper! I can pass by all the trendy clothes, the teas, the soaps, the ceramics (well, except for the cute little cow I showed you in… Continue reading Pretty Papers
I’m currently visiting my daughter in South Korea and brought limited supplies with me. I brought this CRAFT AND CARRY STAMPERATUS Bag on the plane....and put more in my suitcase. It’s only about 9” x 9” square, but I did manage to fit several stamp sets, ink pads, paper, ribbon, a few embellishments and....hmmm that might… Continue reading Show Me Some Cow Love
If you’re a crafty person or a wanna-be crafty person, you need to Follow Your (He)Art. Some people love to paint, others like to watercolor...or maybe just color with crayons or pencils. Or maybe you like to fold and glue things together. Maybe you just like to put ink to paper with a rubber stamp.… Continue reading Follow Your (He)Art
I’ve only been sailing a few times in my lifetime, but I did think it was a grand adventure. A few months ago, I was in Key West, Florida for my daughter’s wedding. After all the festivities were over, my family made a little mini vacation out of the rest of the week. One… Continue reading Sailing on Calm Seas
I love to sing. I’ve been singing in some kind of musical group most of my life, from elementary school to high school choruses, church choirs, community choirs and even a Christmas Caroling group where I dressed in Victorian costume. I think I got my musical gifts from my mother. She’s been a Sweet Adeline… Continue reading Sing a Song – Free as a Bird
I love fun cards. They just seem so much more cheerful to put into the mail. And these cows in the OVER THE MOON stamp set, fit the bill. I have to give credit to Corinne Oosterhoff, a fellow Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator in Denmark. She shared a card on a Facebook page for Stampin’ Up Demonstrators and… Continue reading I’m Over the Moon About These Cows!
.....comes bob, bob bobbin’ along. Now that you have that song in your head.....I’m back again today sharing another card with birds....red birds to be exact. I thought it would be fun to find some pictures of red baby birds. So of course, I turned to Google....because you know if you don’t know an answer....ask… Continue reading When the Red, Red, Robin….
My mother-in-law, who passed away in 2015 from Alzheimer’s Disease, loved flowers. She could make anything grow, even flowers and plants that she would give to me and I would seemingly kill, she would bring them back to life. She had a beautiful yard full of flowers...that included a HUGE magnolia tree. June 6th… Continue reading Good Morning Magnolia!
It’s Springtime....beginning of summer. And at my house (at least before I left on my trip), there were birds singing in the trees. Right now I am writing this from Seoul, South Korea and I’m in them middle of the city....so although there are trees lining the streets, I haven’t seen or heard any birds… Continue reading Sweet Little Birdies
