Latte Retreat and BOGO Sale!

Crafters -

June 30th is the last day to register for the June 14th Latte Retreat. There are only TWO spots left!


The BOGO Sale is coming along!

Everything is in the garage and I even have a GARAGE SALE PERMIT! Permits are ony good for a maximum of THREE DAYS, so the dates have been changed.

July 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, 2018, from 12p-7p.

Want to read more about it? Here is the email I just sent out:


Sitting Pretty Facebook Live

We have been working SO HARD on the BOGO for next week. It was VERY nice to take a break and actually craft online last night during my weekly Facebook Live.

I used the Sitting Pretty Photopolymer Stamp Set. There is a matching set of framelits, and you can save 10% when you purchase the bundle. I'm doing a Pet Craft Fair later this year, so I purchased the stamp set for the dawg!  :)

Well, surprised myself when I made a card for Saturday's Coffee and Cards class using the fern and potted plant! It was VERY pretty - Blushing Bride Cardstock, the new Rose Glimmer Paper - WAY prettier IRL!

But I struggle with masculine cards (anyone else?). So I thought... why not try to make this exact card, but change up a few of the papers! Remember - improvise, adapt, overcome!

Check out the Facebook Video I did last night! You can view it HERE.

Not on Facebook? No BIGS! You can watch it on my YouTube Videos. The Sitting Pretty Card Video is HERE.

You can see how quick and easy this card is! Hope …

Facebook Live TONIGHT!

K-Cup Hexagon Blossom Box

Crafters -

The Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Papers is the SPECIAL OF THE WEEK! Keep reading for more about the special!

Check out what we made with the Share What You Love Specialty DSP THIS week:

You know the June Special will net you a FREE PDF using the Abstract Impressions Bundle to make 4 additional card designs, along with your 5 free cards. Well, did you know that when you place your $50 online order (before shipping and taxes), using Host Code V6FHKQKB, you will also receive a sample template of the K-Cup Hexagon Blossom Box? That right! But only from June 17-23, 2018.

I saw the videos by Petra (demonstrator in Germany!), and Julie/Paper Pixie, but I wanted a box that would fit my K-cups because - well... I just LOVE my coffee! So, I improvised, adapted, and overcame!

You can see how I modified their designs on my weekly Facebook Live video. It is on Sunday evenings at 7pm Eastern. You can view them LIVE or on the replay on my Facebook page > Videos. (That link …

It's Friday!

Can you believe it is Friday, already?

Before I retired, there were days that I would be counting the HOURS until Friday! (I'm confident there is at LEAST one person who understands what I'm talking about!)

Now that I am retired, I get to set my own days. Some days are more productive than others, but every day, I try to craft. Not for the last few days now...

Well, my mom arrives on Monday. We are VERY blessed that she is able to stay with us for the summer. We don't get to see her very much throughout the year, so seeing her all summer is a real treat! PLUS - she's a MUCH better cook than I am, so the boyz REALLY love having her here!

She stays in our spare bedroom. Which is GREAT! But the other nine months of the year it is pretty much used as storage. So guess what I have been working on for the past few days?!

And, while cleaning and organizing, why not go ahead and price and sort everything for my BOGO?

When the stuff is all here, there, and everywhere, I knew I had a …

Abstract Impressions at King's Kids Daycare!

Crafters -

Gotta share what fun I had earlier this week!

You see... I sent out 127 cards a few weeks ago to my friends and customers. Well, one of my friends asked me if I would be willing do to a class at her work. You better believe it! Especially with Father's Day right around the corner - we NEED Father's Day cards!

So we booked a Private Card Class for 27 people on Monday evening! And we did it in LESS THAN AN HOUR!

Yesterday I posted an ALBUM on my Facebook page with 20 photos of the hard workers! They had just as much fun as I did - and one of my teammates, along with my HUSBAND came along to help - always can use an extra set of hands! (can I get an AMEN here?!)

Check out the cute cards we made!
