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….

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

It’s a Seasonal Thing….Or Not

Earlier this week I posted about my simple wreath card and the Wishing You Well Stamp set.  You can see that post HERE.  But I still wasn’t done making cards with this stamp set. I was using it for a card class, so I was looking at all the different possibilities....read that “seasons” to use… Continue reading It’s a Seasonal Thing….Or Not

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
