Hello! Hope you had a very Merry Christmas!
Ours was nice. Very stressful at times but nice. I just have to learn to not let "stuff" get to me. Working on that! I really need to get down to my craft area and craft. That helps me to de stress.
I thought I took pictures of all the jewelry boxes I made for presents but I didn't :( I do have the pictures of the one I made for my son's girlfriend. It looks gold in the picture but it really is silver. I made the flowers with my Sissix flower die. She loves hot pink & black. I think she liked it.
My kitty will be soo sad when we take down the tree. She loves to be under it whenever she can.
Well I hope to get back to posting & creating more regularly now that Christmas is over. I got a new computer for Christmas and am going to attempt to hook it up this afternoon. Wish me luck! It HAS to be better than this one. This one is sooo slow! Drives me crazy!

Hello! Sorry I haven't been around. I have been so busy but also battling the holiday blues and to top it off the flu the past couple of days. This is my happy place so no complaining... I have many projects just about completed so I will have something to share soon. Promise! I have a song to share with you that sums it all up for me right now!!

I have a feeling that song will resonate with a few of you!
Have a great day.

Hello! I had a very busy weekend so I wasn't able to get crafty. Went to a yummy book club brunch on Saturday and then to Hale farm & village in the evening for their holiday lantern tour. They take you back in time to see what life was like back then. It was fun but pretty cold! Then yesterday I had my Dad over for dinner. Great weekend!
Since I don't have any cards to share I thought I would show you a few of my favorite places in the house that I decorated for Christmas. I love antiques but can't really afford them. I have some and I really enjoy them.I also have photos from the 1800s & early 1900s hanging in my house. My husband thinks I'm nuts but I really think they are neat. I especially like the ones with the little girls with huge bows in their hair from the Victorian age.We live in an old house that has a lot of character and my style fits perfect with that.
Well, I have to get my shower so I can get this house in order. You can write your name in the dust so I think maybe it's time to clean! LOL! Have a great day!

Hello Happy Thursday!
Not much chit chat today...I am not feeling chatty today.
My card is for my Dad's neighbor who just had a baby girl. The stamp is from Lily of the Valley. So many cute stamps!! Very fun to color.
The other pictures are just a few I took on our bus trip this past weekend. We went to Oglebay in West Va. Fun! It's nice to have friends to do fun things with...I am so blessed!
Have a good day.

Hello! It's Thursday already! Sorry I haven't been around. I have been busy and also feeling the blues. Can't figure out exactly why but I'm ready to get rid of them already!!!

Hello! Happy December! It's gonna be Christmas before we know it.
I was able to get my tree up & decorated as well as decorating the whole house. Now I just have to do some cleaning. Got some shopping done, cards made (not addressed yet)so I feel a little bit better now that some of these can be crossed off the list of things to be done!
The Snowman card was made with a sizzix die. I added some plastic polka dot paper behind. I used a Martha Stewart punch for the outside. Added some brads for his eyes & buttons. I think he turned out cute!!
The next card will be one of the cards for my Jan. class. It was made with three different Memory Box dies. Simple and I think it makes a nice winter scene. I used a snowflake embossing folder for the background. To finish it off I used some sparkle swirl tape from Michaels.
Thanks for stopping today. Tomorrow I am going on a bus trip with a friend. Should be lots of fun!! See you soon.
