Get Your Faves Before They’re Gone!!

The Stampin’ Up retirement sale is in full swing! So many wonderful items are “sun setting” and quickly selling out at that! Once they’re gone – they’re gone for good! I know that I fell in LOVE with the Oh So Succulent suite – the paper, stamps, framelits, ribbons – oh my I really love it all, so I made sure to secure supplies to keep my creative heart content.

I love my crafting family

I’m lucky to have a group of passionate crafters as part of my Stampin’ Up family.

We are each different women from different walks of life and in different stages of life as well but we all share something in common – the need to be creative and express ourselves through the simple act of creating and connecting. With just some…

He very much looked forward to being a dad one day and when it came time to plan on having our baby he was very excited to enter this chapter of…

Mother’s Day Card Making Class on April 29

Mother’s Day is next month and we all love to honor and cherish the mothers and mother figures in our lives. For me Mother’s Day is a special day that I can show my mom, aunts and sisters how special they are to me. They say it takes a village to raise a child – and I certainly continue to see that in my life. Growing up my aunts helped take care of us, whether my Tia Mary with before school and after school care, or my Tia DJ coming to the rescue to help me get ready for school.…
