Last week I shared that you can purchase the Ornate Garden Suite, which is a sneak peak from the upcoming new Annual Catalog. I think my favorite item in the Suite is the incredibly detailed frame dies. Just look at the one below... So very pretty. My flowers are colored using my Stampin Blends markers. For the darker yellow flowers, I used both Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody to color them. Using both gives it a nice orangey-yellow … [Read more...] about Ornate Garden
We're now a little more than a month in to self-isolation at home. All my plumbing and home repairs are done, all the furniture is back, and almost every box is now unpacked (except for my curio cabinet). All the boxes in my craft room are unpacked and I still have a few piles of stuff I'm debating what to do with. As I unpacked boxes, I figured it was the best time to sort through things once more and start another donation pile. The longer … [Read more...] about Save The World By Doing Nothing
With the release of the preview of the New Annual Catalog on Wednesday, we also got the Retirement Lists for both the 2019-20 Annual Catalog and the Spring Mini Catalog. All products are while supplies last. Retiring stamp sets will continue to be produced through mid-May. There are some products which are being reconfigured for the upcoming Annual Catalog, so they show as "retiring" under the old item number since the reconfigured item … [Read more...] about Last Chance List…

One of the best things about visiting Hawaii is all the fresh pineapple. It's so plentiful and it is one of my favorites fruits. The Tropical Oasis Suite has the cutest products to celebrate Summer. One of my favorite dies from the In The Tropics dies is the pineapple die. I love the size of it. The pineapple is about 4.5" tall. With the size of the pineapple, I thought this would make a really cute treat holder. Unfortunately, the set … [Read more...] about Aloha!
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

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!
