A couple days ago I received an unexpected package. It was a fantastic surprise. My favorite YouTube/Podcasters sent me a shirt, coffee mug, and stickers with their logo on them. (A HUGE shout out to Nerd Soup. Check them out… especially if you're a Westworld and/or Game Of Thrones fan!!) So of course I had… Continue reading YOU Made My Day!
It feels good being back in my craft room. I took nearly a month off. After helping my dad heal from surgery, I now have some free time again. But only a little free time... I now have a teething 8 month old daughter who is at the peak of her pain. Poor thing. So… Continue reading Playing with Glitter and Ink
What a long month!

I decided I would stick to traditional colors for this card. I picked red cardstock for the cardfront, and two… Continue reading A Joyous Wreath
A beautiful card for my beautiful sister-in-law. It’s simple and to the point. I kept it blue, her favorite color. She graciously sent me a beautiful package, and I couldn’t wait to get in my craft room and make her a thank you card. I used several stamp sets from a gift box I received… Continue reading FABULOUS!

Pink. What a great color to make a non-traditional card with. Pink cardstock was included in MFT’s Snowflake Splendor card kit. It was the first color I decided to work with. I die-cutted away and assembled snowflakes for a couple of hours. When it was time to make the card, I knew I wanted to… Continue reading Pretty In Pink!
