I just rekindled a romance with the Silhouette Cameo. It was there all the time and I didn’t even realize I needed it. It was practically brand new, I only used it a handful of times, so I dusted it off and turned it on. Everything was working fine, I even upgraded to the Design… Continue reading A Little Frappe Makes Everything Better
I love this quote. It reminds me that the free-spirited little girl I was is still in there somewhere. I just have to let her out once in a while, especially this time of year! Today’s post is part of the Cupcake Inspirations challenge and we want you to make a shaped card to share… Continue reading Flower Power
The times, they are a changing. Change in life is a given. It’s all in how we manage the process. I choose to welcome the changes, because they will happen whether I want them to or not. Sigh…I didn’t put out Easter baskets this year. I don’t have little children anymore. My sons are 27… Continue reading Curiouser and Curiouser
Have you ever thanked your feet? Yes, you read that right. It wasn’t like I couldn’t think of anything when I read that quote. My feet were the first thing that popped in my head!

My mom loves chocolate. She always has a stash of M&M’s in her bedside table. Ask the grand kids, they know EXACTLY where it is! Mom always made fudge for the holidays, not the easy microwave kind… the kind you need a candy thermometer for. For some reason, I wasn’t a fan until I got… Continue reading Oh, Fudge…
Last Christmas my husband started the daunting task of transferring our VHS/Beta home movies to an external drive on our computer. Of course when you do things like that you get distracted and the task takes FOREVER…we still haven’t finished it. BUT, we have all thoroughly enjoyed watching them while they are uploading! One of my… Continue reading Note to Self: Don’t Be too Busy!

I just love interactive cards…wobbles, pop ups, pull tabs, etc. I really wanted to make something that I had never made before and dug around in my stash of tutorials. I found a little gem called the Pop Up Gift Card by Andrea Luhman in one of my old Stamp Rap publications from Club Scrap®… Continue reading Wobbles, Pop Ups and Gift Cards…Oh My!
My grandfather always had roses in his garden. Red ones, and they smelled good too! He also planted climbing roses that grew up around the front porch. (My dad is the handsome teenager on the right!) When I was little, I would sit on the porch and pop off the thorns on the stems and he… Continue reading STOP and Smell the Roses!
