The last days of July are upon us!

Who knew that this month would fly by so quickly? I always think of summer as going by so slowly but here it is, July 29 already! In no time at all the kids will be back in school, all semblance of summer vacations will be over, and the Fall season will be imminent! Who loves Fall as much as I do? The colors, the sentiments, the holidays, the family get togethers? So much going on. Harvest festivals, craft fairs, pumpkin patches! It must be my favorite time of year. Except for Christm… Read more

The Weekend Flew By!!! How about Yours?

It's amazing how quickly the days fly by when you are keeping super busy, right?? Actually, if I'm being completely honest, the whole month of July has been a blur of activity. Here it is, super late Sunday night (more like Monday early morning!) and I can hardly believe that it is now July 24!! Only one more week left to this month, and if feels like we just had the Fourth of July! Tomorrow my cute July "leader" swap cards get put in the mail (priority) so that they… Read more

The Weekend is Coming!

What will you do with your weekend? Is it your typical two days off work? Or do you have a different type of work schedule. Enquiring minds want to know! For me, I form my own work schedule now except for when I work, it doesn't feel a bit like work. Anyone who loves creative paper crafting or stamping or making handmade cards knows what I'm talking about. In fact, anyone who ever loved what they do for a living understands all too well. In a way, this is much better for you h… Read more

Happy Thursday, everyone!!!

Well, I've finally somewhat recovered from my very first craft show in about 30 years and it was fantastic!! The church people who put on the fair were awesome people and they worked hard to make the event a success. This was only their third year doing it and their attendance was up. They had so much for the community it was amazing that more people didn't show up. First of all, they had TWO separate food vendors offering free food to everyone. Admission was free, and the two… Read more

Craft Fair Goodies!!

I love crafting anyway and paper crafting seems to be my "go to" crafting adventure. When I discovered all the super cool stuff you can make using Stampin' Up designer series paper and other embellishments from Stampin' Up I was so thrilled. Here are a few things I've been working hard on to get ready for the upcoming show.  I made these using my cute stamp set "Cookie Cutter Christmas" and some designer paper and washi tape I had. I see that it looks a… Read more

Happy Monday, Everyone!

Wow, what a weekend!! Was yours as busy as mine?  Figures! Summertime and there is no end to the things we can get done in a mere weekend. Some cool things coming up: This coming Saturday, July 15, will be my very first craft fair in a zillion years! I know, such a long time!  Truth is, when I was in my 20's I frequently went to craft fairs to get ideas and then sold in a few. Culminating with a weekend craft event/sale at my own home at the time. My bestie and myself put it toget… Read more
