I'm still playing with the Tropical Oasis Suite today. Just looking at this paper and stamp set makes me wish I was sitting on a beach somewhere enjoying a nice umbrella drink. I'm looking forward to the day when I can just lay around enjoying the sun and a nice fruity cocktail. Frankly, I could be laying around now since I have no plans to go anywhere, but laying the backyard is just not the same as relaxing on a beach listening to the … [Read more...] about Umbrella Drinks
Today, I'm joining The What's New at Stampin Up Blog Hop. We are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world who are Hoppin’ with exciting ideas to share with you.

Just to give you a little history, I've been blogging regularly since 2013. Seven years! Can you believe it? And in seven years, technology changes quite a bit. I knew about six months ago I was going to need to do a major update on my blog and hosting, but put it off until after the Holidays. Then of course, major plumbing problems, house construction, etc, and here it is April. But it is finally done! I am so excited for the new graphics and … [Read more...] about Welcome To My New Space!
I've spent so little time making things in my studio lately, but I did manage to make a card using the Parisian Blossoms Suite. This Suite was one of my very first purchases from the Occasions Catalog and I've hardly had a chance to use it. I used our Champagne Foil paper to cut out the Eiffel Tower. The script writing in the patter paper is a champagne colored foil and it matches our Champagne Foil paper so well. It look so pretty in real … [Read more...] about We’ll Always Have Paris
Today's card was created by a dear friend who came to my rescue so I could share a project with you today. She must be tired of my vague promises of something awesome coming soon. Haha! This fabulous card was designed and created by Poli Rizco. The stamp set is called Music From The Heart. It's actually one that I hadn't really noticed in the catalog so I'm very glad that she used it. And the "forget your trebles" is just perfect for … [Read more...] about Forget Your Trebles
I seriously over-estimated my capabilities in getting a new project made and ready to post for today. I'm still surrounded by boxes and piles of craft supplies in my studio. In the meantime, I will leave you with one of my favorite projects so far from the Spring Catalog. I just love this adorable little lion from the Birthday Bonaza Suite. He's just the cutest little love. These foil heart treat holders are still available to … [Read more...] about I’ve Got Nothing…
If you’ve been following my plumbing saga... All the home repairs are now done. And now I start the process of unpacking all those boxes. This is just a small fraction of what there is to unpack. Unfortunately, no time to share a project today as I’m still in the process of putting stuff away. I’ll try to have something ready to go by Wednesday for you. This has been quite a process. Current Specials It's that time of year… … [Read more...] about Moving Back In
We survived another week at home and everyone is still alive, we still have food, and more importantly, we still have Toilet paper. Actually, it hasn’t been that bad...lots of time with the kids, lots of time with my assistant Frannie, and lots of time to just be. I know for so many people, being at home constantly is really hard. I can appreciate that. As someone who has felt like she’s on a never ending treadmill raising two teens on her own, … [Read more...] about We Did It!
