Today is my husband’s birthday. And it’s a big one too! I wanted to have a party for him (COVID-19 kind of ruined that). Not so much to celebrate but to just kind of remind him how old he is....65! Medicare age! Almost retirement age. But he doesn’t look it. He’s just as handsome now… Continue reading Sailing Home Birthday

They are all made using the same directions, but with different patterns from the same set of papers - Let it Snow Designer Series Paper. I’ve probably told you before that I love… Continue reading Fun Snowmen Gift Card Holders
With just a week until Christmas it’s time to pull out some fast and easy gifts — gift card holders! You can’t just hand someone a gift card, you must put it in something and a gift card holder is just the ticket.

I don’t usually post over the week-end....or on Sunday’s, but evidently this is a crazy week because I posted on my blog yesterday....and now today because I want to send this: I visited my sister-in-law two weeks ago to help her after her knee replacement surgery. I was making the bookmarks that I posted HERE while I… Continue reading Happy Easter!
