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
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
I love fun cards. They just seem so much more cheerful to put into the mail. And these cows in the OVER THE MOON stamp set, fit the bill. I have to give credit to Corinne Oosterhoff, a fellow Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator in Denmark. She shared a card on a Facebook page for Stampin’ Up Demonstrators and… Continue reading I’m Over the Moon About These Cows!
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!
Most everything I post is cards, cards and more cards with a few treat boxes & bags thrown in. But every once in a while, I get asked to do “make something” for an event. My niece is pregnant and of course there was a baby shower. The theme of the shower was “Children’s Books”.… Continue reading Stamping is not just for cards
I have a little spot in my house....that is mine....all mine....and it’s set up to be my crafting spot. I could call it a “Crafting Cave”....but it’s not in a basement, so it not dark and cave like. In fact it’s actually quite bright (at least it is when it’s sunny outside and not raining!).… Continue reading This Little Piggy…..Says Thank You!
Let’s spread some fun birthday cheer! What’s the best part of having a birthday? Besides eating cake....it would be the presents! Everyone likes to get presents. So it’s only fitting that presents are featured on my card today. I used the How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper (DSP) again....I actually think I have some… Continue reading Spread some Birthday Cheer!
In my last post I promised that I would start sharing the cards that I made while I was at The Stamping in the Mountains Retreat. So if “Cake is the Answer” like the title of my post today says...... I just love this! Well, I love cake too - chocolate cupcakes with white icing… Continue reading Cake is the Answer
Stampin’ Up has been encouraging the concept of “simple stamping”....just using paper and ink to make a card. No fancy cut outs, not along of layering, skip the bows, the fancy embellishments, etc. That is kind of hard for me....because I really like adding all the extra’s. But for first time stampers and for those… Continue reading Simple Stamping
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
