On This Day…

Holidays / Special Days/ Paper crafting/ People

On this day in 1866, writer and illustrator Beatrix Potter was born. Following the success of her little book, The Tale of Peter Rabbit, Beatrix bought this farmhouse, Hill Top in Cumbria.

How many of us were read this book as a child and have continued the tradition with our kids and grandkids.

I see at least 6 Stampin' Up! colors in this photo…which ones do you see???

P.S. …and wouldn't you love to have this little cottage for a crafting getaway retreat???

Delightful Doodling aka Zentangle

Paper crafting/ People

From time to time I like to blog about my friends. I have a dear friend who moved to Virginia so her husband could attend Medical School there. He is an Engineer and decided to switch careers…quite impressive I think!

Tracy and I used to stamp together and she would design one of a kind handmade cards for friends' businesses and such.

She sent me a text with a couple samples of these beautiful notecards she created for Mother's Day gifts. I think they are absolutely gorgeous; she gave me permission to share and give her contact information. I told her she needs to get her Etsy store going again….don't you agree??


They are 5″ x 7″ and she would be glad to create some for you.

Today Is National Hat Day!

People/ Uncategorized

Okay…I must come clean. I have never been a hat lover, but lately I have spent a lot more time under one of two ball caps…a Stampin' Up!  logo cap that I purchased at Convention years ago or a Dallas Cowboys one.

In days gone by, hats were an indicator of social status (hmmmm, perhaps this is why “anyone who is anyone”  in England, wears a hat to  all social functions and important events. Seriously, have you ever seen the Queen without her head covered when she is out in public????) and hats would also identify branch of services, rank or regiment in different armed forces.

I spent some time perusing the Internet and stumbled across some interesting hat info…you should google “hats” just for a laugh!

Now…onto something fun. If you had to pick one of these hats, which would you pick and why? I would definitely pick the first one…it seems casual and could easily hide a bad hair day! 🙂

Wedding Car Cans

People/ Projects

My daughter and her friend were in a big wedding a couple of weeks ago. Each bridesmaid had to decorate a can for the back of the newlywed “getaway” car. Of course, Ashley asked if they could come over and use my “stuff” and of course, I said yes! I thought…woo hoo…another chance to draw them into my stamping vortex!!


By the way…YES, their cans WERE the best!! 🙂
