So Kind of you....


We are in for another winter storm here. It's going to be a messy mix of snow, rain and maybe freezing rain! They really don't know how much we will get it will depend on the temperature around here.

One of things that I love is when I see projects that have sewing on them. I think this is a really cool way to step up your card by just sewing on a piece of paper. I was excited when my good friend Heather showed me how to sew on this card, it's so easy and simple to do. Oh wait, I would have to have a sewing machine first, before I can do that!! LOL

We CASE a card in the Spring Catalogue but switched out the hearts for the butterflies.

Happy Monday!

I hope you had a great weekend! It was a productive one around here. We finally had a chance to go to the lumber store to pick up some sheets of drywall. After moving the studio on Sunday morning, my husband went to work! I'm excited to say that the ceiling in my studio is all drywall and now he is working on the stairs. What a difference down there!! Once this part is done, we start on the finishing the sub floor and then drywalling the walls.

Bloomin Marvelous Thank you!


One of the things I love to do each month is send my customers a thank you card in the mail to thank them for attending a class, or placing an order. I love to send a little happiness in the mail and that way they are not just getting bills.

I'm very lucky as my BFF Tracey helps me out each month by making my customers thank you for me. I'm so grateful that she does and just love the fun designs she comes up with each month.

Last month, she had fun making this super sweet thank you card using the Sale a Bration stamp set called Bloomin Marvelous.
