I saw a card posted the other day that made me stop and think. The creator of the card said she didn’t think it looked like a birthday card, but since it didn’t seem to suit any other occasion, she chose a birthday sentiment. I’m sure there are exceptions, but in my opinion just about … More Trendy Little Birthday Trees
I am happy as a Diva in Glitter. Hoo Baby! Stampin’ Up! has announced that Shimmer Paint will continue to be offered beyond the end of the Holiday Mini Catalog.

I really like stamps that earn their keep. If they’re going to stay in my stamp room f0r very long, they need to be either versatile or extraordinary, and preferably both.

Meanwhile, … More Just a quick note…
How quickly one set of images is forgotten on the shelf! When Eastern Blooms appeared in the Fall 2008 catalog, it sat on top of my craft table and saw regular use. It was a bold companion for Embrace Life – one with bold images, one with line images – and it suited our Asian … More Forgotten favorites

Yesterday I had a big ol’ lightbulb go on. I was playing with Cheep Talk and thinking about some submissions I’d seen in response to this week’s Color Challenge at SplitCoastStampers. One card in particular kept coming to mind – I liked the geometry and the color balance. Suddenly, it got really, really bright inside … More Who’s that in my Pear Tree??
Many years ago, my husband and I went to a James Taylor concert…kind of a blast from the past for us, as we were part of his fan club back in the early days. I remember walking through the amphitheater during a break and overhearing a couple of “kids” talking. One asked the other “Isn’t … More You’ve Got a Friend – MOJO114
