Show Me Some Cow Love

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

Follow Your (He)Art

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

Sing a Song – Free as a Bird

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

Good Morning Magnolia!

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!
