A Birthday "Note"

I love to celebrate birthdays, and not just my own. I think it's a great time to reflect on the past and how far you've come each year. It's also a wonderful time to set new goals, establish new interests, and renew old friendships.

Here's a birthday card that is for a music-loving guy.

Autumn Blessings

I hope you are enjoying your Thanksgiving Day in whatever manner you choose to observe it. Time with family, friends, pets, or even a peaceful day to yourself is the perfect opportunity to reflect on all that you are grateful to have in your life. For me, it's my wonderful family. We're close and crazy :) and holidays are a time of food, jokes, naps, and just hanging together.

Even though the weather felt like fall a couple of days ago and winter today, I have a yard FULL of leaves from my neighbor's oak tree. The colors were so inspiring and I was itching to use a stamp set that I bought last year and never opened.

I was thrilled by how the leaves turned out! And no, they're not real...

Merry, Merry, Merry Crafting!

It's that time of year!! The weather is chilly and snowy and brisk. It's the perfect time for apple cider and hot chocolate, some home cooked soups and stews, and time to spread cheer and be thankful for family and friends.

And why not hang out and do some cardmaking and scrapbooking :) I'm here to introduce a new class for the Christmas holiday. The projects will include:

1) A gift tag featuring a little paper piecing
