This week we take a time out from holiday cards and crafting to bring you a few birthdays!  My #2 son celebrated his 31st on Friday.  This coming Thursday is hubby’s birthday (this is his card).  I have a niece celebrating a birthday on Thursday, as well.  My first granddaughter is turning the big ONE […]

I’m going to be completely honest about this week.  Sucked.  I had to do the license renewal thing (at DMV!), another appointment 30 miles away… which doesn’t seem like that far, but country roads… yeah.  Then a little family drama that included a house guest.  That’s really too much “excitement” for me. So, initally, I […]

I’m a rebel, if you hadn’t noticed.  A rebel in my own mind.  I was having coffee with my hubby a couple days ago and we were talking about what I was going to do for my blog post today.  When I told him I was going to do a Christmas card with black and […]

Five weeks.  That’s all the time I have left to complete my burgeoning holiday to-do list.  So as not to break the bank, I decided to make most of the gifts this year.  Who am I kidding?  Yeah, it’s more of a gift, but some of these projects are going to take forever. My husband […]

The season is seriously creeping up on me.  I have not even begun to shop or get my holiday schedule together.  For only the 2nd time in a long long time, we’ll be enjoying Thanksgiving with my daughter in law’s grandparents.  Christmas is looking bleak, too.  We’ll be lucky to have the kids and grandkids […]

The next 60 days will be a marathon for me.  There are so many family birthdays (including my own), three major holidays, Christmas shopping to be done, not to mention all the cooking and baking.  Then there is the gift buying/making.  It’s going to be hairy! So, yeah… you’ll see Christmas cards galore.  Not just […]

And it’s back to Autumn!  Just ten days ago we had 7″ of snow and frigid temperatures.  Now we’re back in the 70s.  I was all ready to make Christmas cards, but now I’m too warm for that!  At least this week! 🙂 I’ve been a little under the weather these last few days.  I […]

Well, a few days ago it really did look like Christmas.  We had 7″ of snow, but it was mostly gone by mid afternoon.  That’s how the snow is around here.  Yes, it does snow a lot, but it also melts in a wink. I’ve only made two Christmas cards so far this season.  I […]

Of course, the crafting world is full speed ahead with the Halloween crafts.  I am not much for Halloween cards, as I have never actually sent one, but I do the token card once a year. I use to make cute little totes for the neighbor kids when we lived in our last house.  Now […]


If there’s anyone in my life that I didn’t show enough appreciate, it was my pastor.  When we lived in New York, we had the greatest church home and the pastor and his wife were amazing people.  He acted as a counselor as much as a pastor.  His wife was an amazingly giving person.  She […]
