Dresser Organizer


A while back I had promised to show you all how I organized myself and my work area after I got kicked out of the “White Couch Room”.  If you’re new to the blog I used to have my own room in the house for crafting, but after child #3 came around and the boys … Continue reading

Coptic Stitch Mini Album


Back in January I agreed to a Pay It Forward project with a number of my Facebook friends.  Now that it’s the middle of July I think I have procrastinated long enough given the list of projects that I need to complete!  I really wanted to make my friend Kelly a fun mini album and … Continue reading

Summer Invite + Place Cards


Any party that you are planning for the summer months demands an invitation that is crisp and clean.  Going with a tea length layout (vertically long and skinny) is also a playful way to set-up your design and they easily fit into a No. 10 envelope.  I choose to keep the printed design pretty simple … Continue reading

My Birthday Card

My Birthday Card


This is my birthday week.  How old am I you ask?  (how rude are you!) Well since you asked… this is the last “milestone” birthday before that big milestone birthday that women tend to fret about.  So it’s not a big deal – at least I think it’s not a big deal.  It’s not a … Continue reading

Summer Stamp Clearance


Now that the new Idea Book & Catalog is here, June is the month that I clean house and move out a lot of the stamps that I haven’t used in a while.  It’s a great time for you to pick up stamp sets at incredibly ridiculous prices – all of the stamp sets in … Continue reading

I have other … Continue reading

My Faux Mercury Glass


My obsession with mercury glass is one of those things I haven’t fully disclosed to my husband.  I have been secretly stashing my collection of everything from candlesticks to glass birds in my closet, all in anticipation of the master bedroom redo that is approaching. I also have been searching high and low for the … Continue reading

Single Photo Layout

Single Photo Layout


Maybe it’s just me – but I seem to only get one good photo when I shoot an event.  I love to see layouts that feature six beautiful photos but for me it just never seems to work out that good.  So when I am searching for new layout ideas I always throw in my … Continue reading

New Catalog + New Template

New Catalog + New Template


Yeah!  I’m back baby!  Made it through the end of school – it wasn’t easy but we did it.  So happy that summer is here because that just means that the 2 hours I spent every day driving to school and back can now be spent doing things that are actually fun like making cards … Continue reading

DIY: The Pinch Top Box


Yesterday with the Elbow Grease recipe I promised to show you the little boxes that I made for these gifts.  Now I don’t know about you – but school is out in 2-1/2 weeks and I have 3 kids… you do the math.  That’s a lot of little gifts to get done and delivered so … Continue reading
