Two weeks ago I mentioned that we were having a major life change here at our house but I didn't really clue you in on what was happening. In the span of about 12 days, my husband accepted a promotion and moved to another State. We made the difficult decision for me to stay here with the kids for a multitude of reasons I … [Read more...] about Change is…

I have a selection of cards for you today for Five Minute Friday using the brand new In Colors that will be released next week. Actually, it's one card in five different colors. This card is really simple to put together. You'll want to do a watercolor wash on the watercolor paper. The more water you use, the lighter your ink color will be. But, it will go one much smoother and you won't get those harsh edges to the color wash. Once it dries, … [Read more...] about Five Minute Friday – In Colors Blooms

Tomorrow I'll be working at the Just Crop Retreat doing Make & Takes and selling Stampin Up goodies. I always look forward to these retreats and seeing all the ladies there. There is nothing better than getting together with friends who like to craft. Today's post is going to be quick, just like my Five Minute Friday card. I'm using mostly the products from the Eastern Palace Premier Bundle. Oh my goodness, I love these dies! Just … [Read more...] about Five Minute Friday – Eastern Palace
Today I have a sneak peak of a new Suite of Products that will be released in the new Annual Catalog, which starts in just two weeks.

The Eastern Palace Bundle is available in two different size Kits: Starter and Premier. These two … [Read more...] about Eastern Palace Suite
If you're a crafter, you're going to love the brand new Crafting Forever stamp set that will be available June 1st. This is one of the stamp sets that I received at OnStage last month and it speaks to my heart. I completely agree that Crafting is forever and housework should be whenever. I would much rather spend my time making something for someone rather than cleaning toilets. Okay, bad example. That's probably everyone's least favorite … [Read more...] about Crafting Forever!
