Stamping on Wood

Yes, it’s true....you can stamp on something besides paper!  I’ve seen projects stamped on little cloth bags, shirts, coaster tiles, and my favorite....maybe because it’s the only one that I have tried....wood!  Small wooden slices, cut from a tree.  I have a friend who saved a branch that they cut from the bottom of their… Continue reading Stamping on Wood

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!
