Happy Halloween, Everyone!!!

Wow, how did I forget it was Halloween this morning? Crazy... Ok, here are the treats I made for my grand babies. They are still pretty young (5 and under) so they cannot be too spooky but should still be a little bit creepy. Creepy and spooky are two different things, you didn't know?? Haha... The Halloween Cookie Cutter set came into good use for these tricky treats. I had some scraps of harvest-colored paper laying around so that's what I used for the candy covering. One th… Read more

Just Barely Sunday...

Hey, Everyone! I'm barely making it under the wire for Sunday's blog post. When I started this blog I promised myself that I'd do my darnedest to write daily and post pictures that were meaningful for that day. Try as I might, it seems that life gets in the way, so to speak. Today was a busy one, filled with grandkids, shopping, laundry (does it EVER stop? lol), cooking, cleaning, shopping, Target (haha...whole separate category from 'shopping'), and catching up wi… Read more

Saturday of Service

Better known as Servant Saturday. Good morning, everyone!  It's still pretty early here. Had another late night last night putting together some new Christmas cards so I could take pictures of them. Today is Saturday and my sister is moving, so we are going to help her move! Now I know what you are thinking: You are too old to help!  Well, that part is true but I won't be doing much more than offering moral support. My hubby is driving his truck over there and we are bringing … Read more

Fruitful Friday

Good afternoon, Everyone!! Today I'm celebrating what I call "Fruitful Friday." Why is it fruitful? Well, some people may be ending their work week, others may not work at all at a typical Mon-Fri type place. It doesn't really matter. You can be fruitful any day. What does fruitful mean? In the online Merriam-Webster's dictionary it says it is: " producing a good result  :  very productive."  It goes on to say that it refers to being " conducive to an a… Read more

Thankful Thursday!

Good morning, everyone! I started this on my other blog a couple of weeks ago but thought I'd carry it over here: Thankful Thursday. It's pretty simple: what are you thankful for today? It could be something simple like your morning coffee or it could be so much more. Though for some of us, coffee is a big deal some mornings! I stayed up too late last night again. Just trying to catch up and my craft room looks like a hurricane went through there. I'll call it "Hurric… Read more

It's Still Wednesday!!

Hi again, everyone! I wanted to just pop in for a minute to talk about this great new item I purchased from Stampin' Up! It is the Envelope Punch Board (item # 133774) and it is FANTASTIC!  This makes it so simple to make any size envelope you might need, and when they say ANY size, they mean ANY size. Sure, it isn't so bad getting envelopes for the standard sized cards we make but what about those small 3 x 4 cute little cards you might want to include with a gift? Or oddly s… Read more
Good morning, everyone! I know it's not that early but given that I had such a late night last night I feel pretty energetic this morning...been up since about 7 or so and gathering supplies for a new project. I started something on my Stampin' Up! blog about 10 days ago and since I'll be posting more here I will continue it over here. Today is Wednesday, or as I like to call it, "Whimsical Wednesday." I assigned titles to my days of the week to help me get organ… Read more

Wow, Another Blog!!

Hi Everyone...I actually have another blog elsewhere but thought I'd try blogger.com because of all the great stuff I've been hearing about it. Here's hoping it is a long and wonderful relationship!   Welcome to my world of stamping creative cards and goodies to give to your friends, family, church members, and any other people you want to favor. Here is a picture of a recent card I made by playing around with my newest bundled stamp set, Paisley & Poseys available at S… Read more
