autumn begets winter

oh…. how I especially love this time of year.  My mind is very creative, but my productivity is low.  I need to kick it into gear.  If you want to send me an inspirational papercrafted project to put on my blog, I will gift you something from my hobby room which is in much need of purging. (example:  free plates for the cuttlebug, stamps, stickers, paper, etc, etc)  I am coming out of retirement!!!!


has it really been that long?

lordy lordy…..

I need to get back in the groove…it has been so long.  I need some encouragement…any one up for a few kind words and a little inspiration?

be well

do good

Pinky is hosting a week-long crop over at Just Scrappin. She is offering up some beautiful prizes as well as a very nice environment. I have offered up several challenges there myself!

how much Fiskars stuff is “too much”?


and as I dig in deeper, I find more.

this was inspired by a magazine cover…the take-home concept for me, was the elegance and the simplicitiy…and here you go!

Well….only a few more days for the drawing at VanillaJoy and this is a BIGGIE! Is there a papercrafting alive that could not put this to good use?

We are getting ready for a week long scrap on Just Scrappin with fun prizes, challenging ideas, lots of laughter and skill levels from beginning to super extra advanced. No seriously…..drop me a PM here for more info. Craft on!!

desk caddy

Several weeks ago I was on a friends website and she had this really great tutorial on making desk caddies.  It was so easy and so fun I made two.  Now don’t get me wrong….I enjoyed myself but am not a perfectionist.
