Ok, not really. But, when I first saw the black and gold Winter Wonderland Designer Series Paper in the Holiday Mini, I thought this is too weird. Black For Christmas? Seriously, who does black for Christmas? Stampin Up has lost their minds! Who is going to buy BLACK Christmas paper? Good luck selling any of that stuff.

This was a quick … [Read more...] about Give Thanks
I recently heard someone say "the days are long, but the years are short" and that is so true. Time has this weird ability that the clock never seems to move when you're staring at it. But, you could swear that it was just Easter so how can we be most of the way through Fall already? A few weeks ago, I had a rare Saturday afternoon off from running around to soccer games so I pulled out my stamp set Lighthearted Leaves and my Vintage Leaves … [Read more...] about Fall is Rushing By
