Thank goodness I have so many supplies during this self-imposed quarantine. It’s a good excuse to make a bunch of stuff and “pretend” it was because I couldn’t do anything else. I mean really, I think it is totally safe to go outside now, since everyone else is sequestered away. Well, unless they are onContinue reading “Tropical Storm”
Pumpkins can be springy, right? Ok, seriously…as you know magazines work in advance of their publishing date. I came across a magazine asking for submissions for their fall issue. 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?”

So I’ve been busy working on Valentine cards (even though one has the Christmas reindeer) with a kit I received from Lyssa at Song of My HeartContinue reading “Love is in the Air”
