Last week, I started playing with all the different stuff in the Painted Poppies Suite and I just couldn't stop myself. I have tons of ideas to share using these products. I'm starting with a quick and easy card for you today. This card makes great use of the fabulous pattern paper in the pack. I used the sheet that has a row of flowers across the bottom and the top of the sheet. This sheet is meant to be cut into sections like this to cover … [Read more...] about Stuck On Poppies

One of my favorite products from the new Occasions/Spring Catalog are these cute heart-shaped tins. These tins are food safe and you can bake in them. I filled mine with candy since I didn't really have time to do any baking this weekend. I decorated … [Read more...] about I Had This Lion Around

It’s Wednesday and I promised you an update on the plumbing saga so here goes. The plumber showed up Monday, but still couldn’t figure out which line was the problem so he called in reinforcements. Within a couple hours, I had five plumbers at my house working. It looked like a plumbers convention in front of my house.

On Friday I mentioned that I had a plumbing leak. I was seriously hoping it was a minor repair, but for the amount of water in my kitchen, hallway, and bathroom, I was sort of prepared that this wasn't going to be a quickie fix.

The only things I added to the kit were the stamp pads in Terracotta Tile and Pretty Peacock … [Read more...] about Seriously The Best
