Oh To Be in a Tropical Oasis

Our power was out most of the day on Monday due to a big rain & wind storm so I didn’t get much done that I wanted to get done.   So in the spirit of catching up....Two week-ends ago, I attended a “Virtual Retreat” in place of an “in person” event at a beach… Continue reading Oh To Be in a Tropical Oasis

Tropical Oasis….at Home

I was supposed to go to a Stampin’ at the Beach Retreat this past week-end in North Carolina.  But due to the COVID-19 Virus, the retreat wasn’t cancelled, but it was changed and everything  was all online...Facebook live presentations, Zoom Room chats....and we even played virtual Bingo!  Instead of everyone being together, we were all… Continue reading Tropical Oasis….at Home

Simple Stamping with Thoughtful Blooms (Almost)

S.I.P.  No, it does not stand for Still In Pajamas.  It stands for Stamps, Ink, Paper.  Nothing else on your card....no ribbon, no bling, no embossing, just pure and simple stamping.  If you want to make cards in a hurry, S.I.P. is the way to go.  But that doesn’t mean that your cards have to… Continue reading Simple Stamping with Thoughtful Blooms (Almost)

Under My Umbrella….on a Rainy Monday Night

As long as I can remember, my Mom has sung with Sweet Adelines....and at 90 years of age, she is still up on the risers singing away as the oldest member of the Scottsdale Chorus chapter.  Early on, my Dad in his infinite wisdom decided that she needed something to help her practice, so in… Continue reading Under My Umbrella….on a Rainy Monday Night
