As the shelter in place order becomes more and more official throughout all of Georgia, I am entering my 3rd week of being home alone. I’m not sick, nor have I been exposed, I just live alone and have nowhere to go, so I thought it best to stay put and not get out atContinue reading “Quarantine Coloring & Cards”
Thanks Coronavirus! We had to cut every other sport short, kids are out of school – even being sent home from college, and wherever possible folks are working from home as new shelter in place orders are issued county by county. Yes, these are unprecedented times and yes we are making history, but now you’veContinue reading “Opening Day”

I kept another blog then if you really want to read through the whole story. You can find it here: http://losingandrew.blogspot.com/2016/05/the-crash.html I still struggle with depression sometimes.Continue reading “Remembering Andrew”
As the Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to dominate the news and prevent social interacting, I spent the weekend crafting.

As it happened, I had just gotten some photos from my sister-in-law of my beautiful niece, born in the fall of 2019. So I thought IContinue reading “Pumpkins in Spring?”
This month we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and countless birthdays of friends and family – and my dog Rosco turns 10! Here is a fun Paw-ty birthday card and some St. Paddy’s Day gnomes to cheer you up. Enjoy!
I was inspired to make a background using alcohol inks. I gathered my supplies and sat down to begin. I carefully squirted the blending solution on the paper, then added my colors, then blew the colors around with a straw. It became crystal clear to me at that point that I am not an artist.Continue reading “One Background – Four Different Looks”
I bought the file so I could cut these pieces from my Cricut. As I decided on the color combinations and patterns, I watched each of these ladies come to life. I am completely obsessed with them, although they take hours to put together. I put the three of them on Facebook and asked friendsContinue reading “The Ladies”
Cards befitting the name Cheeky Crafter. I hope you enjoy them!
