Most of you already know that I live in Southern California. The only way I'm going to see a snowman is if I see one on the internet. I'm definitely not a Winter Season girl. Don't get me wrong. I love the way the snow and ice looks in all those pictures I see in books and online. But I won't be living in it - that's for sure. As soon as the temperature drops to 68, I'm digging out the scarves and heavy jacket. Even though I'm not ready … [Read more...] about Happiness is a Warm Smile
Oops, I mean happy First Day of Fall. Now that it’s Fall, it’s the perfect time to start sharing more Christmas cards. I know it seems crazy early, but if you plan to make your Holiday cards, you need to start your planning and prep now. Even though I’m game to start sharing Holiday cards, I was worried that the bright traditional red and green colors might be a little much since people are still enjoying their pumpkin … [Read more...] about Merry Christmas!

One of my favorite things to make around the Holidays is gift holders. I realize I could save myself a lot of time and buy gift bags and boxes at the store, but where is the fun in doing that? My favorite gift holder from the Catalog is our Mini Pizza boxes. These boxes can fit so many different small gifts, like gift cards, jewelry, chocolate, or cash. To decorate these boxes, I make a "belly band". The belly band wraps around the center of … [Read more...] about A Little Merry
I flew home from OnStage yesterday very, very, very early. If you've never flown out of Orlando, then you have not experienced one of the most busiest airports in the world. Any transport service you use to get to the airport recommends a pick-up at least three hours prior to flight time to give sufficient time for check-in and security. My flight left at 7:00 am EST, which is 4:00 am PST (my time zone). So pick-up was at 4:00 am EST. I'll let … [Read more...] about I Survived OnStage

Instead, these are given to lots of different people, to Stampin Up employees that may have helped me with something or people who were just extra nice. The boxes are our Pizza boxes and these are a … [Read more...] about Blending Your Blends
