So, I’ve been stamping and papercrafting for about 13 years now.  I’ve never been known for my clean and simple cards.  Oh no.. I’ve always embraced the more is more theory; sometimes to a fault. Recently I heard that some stampers/papercrafters were interested in seeing more patterned paper options.  Others were looking for male cards. […]

Welcome to 2017!  I’m one of those “early to bed” people who rarely sees the ball drop and Saturday night was no exception.  Oddly enough, I woke up about 10 minutes to midnight and heard the brief firework display.  I was fast asleep moments later. A new year means a whole slew of birthdays.  I […]

On December 23rd, my dear Granny transitioned into her heavenly body.  She was just about 2 months past her 100th birthday.  While we are saddened a bit because she’s gone, we are rejoicing in the fact that she is where she has wanted to be.  During her last couple of weeks, she expressed the desire […]

It’s cold.  I mean below zero with wind.  Frigid.  So, you would think I would get a lot done in the studio, but nope.  It’s just a few days before Christmas and I have so many gifts to wrap and cookies to bake and projects to finish up.  Sleep is not going to be an […]

We temporarily interrupt Christmas crafts to bring you the McMillen household December birthdays.  My #2 son is turning 29 on Wednesday.  I can’t even wrap my head around that concept.  His given name is Zachary Kane McMillen, but my oldest brother nicknamed him Zeke when he was just a few months old.  I really didn’t […]

Is anyone else just floored that it’s December 5th, already?!  I am usually way ahead of the game at this point, but frankly, it’s getting harder and harder to buy gifts or make gifts for my (adult) children.  Since they’re all on their own, two of them married, they tend to buy what they need […]

Happy Monday!  Hubby is back to work today after four days off, so I’m all confused as to what day it is.  Not use to having him around so much, but it was awesome! After finishing up the Wreath Frames, I’m now in high gear to finish the kids’ wedding album.  I’m looking forward to […]

Part 1 of this post can be seen here. Well, I trust that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving, here in the US.  My family will be celebrating (unconventionally, as usual) on Saturday… which happens to be my birthday, as well.  No turkey this year.  My kitchen is so small that it’s difficult to cook on […]

Well, the hustle and bustle has definitely started off our holiday season.  Now that the boys all live away from home, it’s quite a drama getting them all together at once.  My #3 son and his wife are driving in from the east coast next week, so I’ll be preoccupied with praying for their travels. […]

  I have a very special project to share with you this week.  This is the first part.  The wrap up will be posted on Thursday, November 23rd. I’ve been very excited to do this project, which was born from a post I saw on Pinterest.  I cannot post the entire picture, as I do […]
