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

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….

Santa Claus is Coming to Town

Yes, I still have Christmas carols on my mind....mainly because I have lots of Santa’s and Mrs. Claus and elves and North Pole signs and presents cluttering up my desk.  I’ve been busy stamping and coloring and die cutting.  It’s how I get my inspiration for the cards I’m going to make.  I make a… Continue reading Santa Claus is Coming to Town

It’s Time for Mistletoe and Holly

For many years I sang with a caroling group called The Joyful Tidings Caroling Company. We dressed in period costumes and sang Christmas songs for events and parties.  It was a great time and I loved it because 1.) I love to sing and 2.) Christmas carols make everyone smile.  One of my favorite Christmas… Continue reading It’s Time for Mistletoe and Holly

Wreaths Belong on Doors

One of my new favorite stamps is the wreath that is part of the Wishing You Well stamp set.  Why do I like it?  It makes me look like an artist when I stamp it!  This stamp set is one of the “distinctive” stamps.  What is a distinctive stamp you say?  Well it’s a special… Continue reading Wreaths Belong on Doors

Simplicity At It’s Best

The big trend these days seems to be simplifying your lives.  Getting rid of the excess and clutter in your home, office....wherever you may be.  Card making can be the same way! I’ve never been a big fan of cards that have lots of “stuff” — like layers upon layers of foo-foo and lace and… Continue reading Simplicity At It’s Best

Every Card is Different

HInt: Make sure you read all the way to the bottom for a special event & offer! Last week I posted about Channeling My Christmas Spirit.  I did that with a few friends who came to my first Countdown to Christmas event last Friday.  I was a bit nervous because I’ve never had a group make… Continue reading Every Card is Different

Channeling my Christmas Spirit

I didn’t have my usual Wednesday post yesterday because I’ve been busy preparing for my first Countdown to Christmas stamping event on Friday Night.  Because one of the products that I wanted to use (the Timeless Tidings Card kit) was out of stock, I  needed to plan something different. I was actually in the process… Continue reading Channeling my Christmas Spirit
