Doing the Oxide Lift!

No, it’s not a new dance move! My crafty friend Julie at Cape Cod Scrapper shared a pretty spring card featuring the oxide lift technique. She got the idea from this Simon Says Stamp video by Gina K and after watching it I had to try it too. It just so happens that the new monthly… Continue reading Doing the Oxide Lift!

Rolling with my Peeps

I love a good joke, especially the kind that evokes a good belly laugh. You know, the side splitting guffaw, tears running and you can’t breathe laughter?

Just the Right Shoes

I am a shoe buying addict. I’m selective about the style, but I’ll buy all the colors that are available if the style complements my feet. SHHHH! I have bunions and when I find just the right shoes, I snatch them up! I’ve learned to choose comfort over style. The turning point for me was… Continue reading Just the Right Shoes

It’s Candy Cane Season!

It took a long time for peppermint to grow on me. My Memaw and Papaw kept a dish of starlight mints on their coffee table during Christmas. My sister and I would see it and think, CANDY! After it melted a few minutes in our mouths, we would spit it out like it was on… Continue reading It’s Candy Cane Season!
