Our mail has been sooooo slow lately....it was pretty bad back in December which everyone attributed to all the holiday mailings, people buying gifts online etc, but it’s now March...yes already!) and it is still taking letters 2-3 weeks just to go across town.

Let’s Emboss – Seashells!

I had a little stamping playdate with a good friend yesterday. It was great to just sit and create together.

Challenging Myself with the Berry Blessings Bundle

In my last post I shared several of the cards that my group of stampers made in response to a Card Challenge. You can see that post here:  Sharing a Card Challenge.  I needed a little "card therapy", myself, so I appealed to my "craft courier" (aka my husband) to bring a bunch of my… Continue reading Challenging Myself with the Berry Blessings Bundle

Sharing a Card Challenge
