Well, the baby shower is a week behind us now.  It took me days to recuperate, but I have hit the ground running again.  Christmas is just  43 days away.  Luckily, my newest daughter-in-law has claimed Thanksgiving.  Finally!  I’ve been waiting for a daughter-in-law to step up. So, my focus today was to create a […]

Anyone who has been in my studio knows that I have a little bit of everything and a whole bunch of somethings.  Egg cartons, pill bottles, recycled packaging… just a lot of desirable finds. You probably know that I’m down to just a few days for the baby shower I’m hosting for my newest daughter […]

I’m on day 5 of a particularly nasty flu.  It was Sunday morning before I could drag myself into the studio to create.  Although I wanted to make another Christmas card, it wasn’t happening.  Then I remembered that I need tags.  Every year I put a tag on the tree for the boys (and now […]

Ten.  That’s the number of weeks until Christmas.  Christmas is going to look a little different in our family this year.  It’s going to be about giving (to others outside the family).  Our family has exploded in numbers over the last two years and none of us are keen on the idea of going into […]

I’m officially in love with the trees in the new Stamp Simply Clear Stamps’ O Christmas Tree set.  And the sentiments that go along with it are perfect. I wanted to come up with another quick and easy Christmas card that could be mass produced.  So I saw a card on Pinterest that was a […]

This was my day for designing a quick, easily mass produced Christmas card.  I will make a couple small changes, but for the most part… this will be the bulk of my Christmas cards. I do send a special cards to immediate family (sons, aunts, etc), but I’ve pretty much got those done already.  Now […]

Today we’re celebrating new Christmas stamps/dies at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.  So much beauties and amazing sentiments to match. There’s been some discussion on Facebook within one of my groups about themed Christmas trees.  I lived the majority of my life with the traditional tree that consisted of ornaments my kids had made with […]

I can’t wait to have some pumpkin (pie, spice coffee, whatever).. It’s a huge favorite as it goes hand and hand with Autumn… my favorite time of year. Yesterday, we made the announcement that our first granddaughter is due in January.  Her name is Kaleo Athena McMillen and I cannot wait to meet her!  She […]

Christmas is barreling down on me like a freight train.  I have many other things to celebrate before, but if I don’t start my Christmas crafts/cards now, then I’ll be hurting in December. Each year I do several snowflake cards.  One will be pink, one brown/tan, and a blue/white combo.  I’ve been doing this for […]

I’m going to step back into fall for a minute.  I was just playing with some watercolor paper and this is what happened.  I will fully admit that I was inspired by a card I came across on Pinterest.  I didn’t save it, but the triptych idea stuck in my head. I’m having a hard […]
