Question: I don’t want to make cards. I don’t have time because I’m still working, and there are lots of Clubs and SIGs I am interested in. Do you ever sell your cards?

Happy Labor Day! What exactly is Labor Day all about, in this age of working every single day regardless of weather?

It’s easy to look out the window, or listen through the walls any given day of the week and hear workers doing their… Read More

A somewhat more elaborate card during our Team Retreat was this Majestic Elk Christmas card idea. The elk itself is stamped onto a piece of watercolor paper and die cut with one of the set of Circle Framelits. Originally, everything else on the card front was also cut from this die, but I wanted to try something a little quicker,… Read More

I may never leave the February 2016 Scripture Journaling plan from Sweet Blessings. That month last year taught me the importance of slowing down not only my activities, but my mind. Staying busy had kept me from hearing His lead and Stampin’ Up!-ness had kept me from following Him. Would you like to join me for the month of August?… Read More
