Happy Anniversary to me! Two years ago today, January 23, 2018 I joined as a Stampin’ Up Demonstrator. One of the best decisions I’ve made.

In terms of real flowers bringing joy....I’d have to plant some seeds, but I am not a good gardener, so this pretty paper from Stampin’ Up! called Happiness Blooms is… Continue reading Happiness Blooms
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!
This card might look familiar if you read my previous blog post about presents last Friday. Check out that post HERE. I used the same layout, but just changed the colors and sentiment, ...and I have a different card....and for a different occasion too! The background paper is from the same bright and cheery How Sweet It… Continue reading Darling Baby Card
