Little Treats Bundle ~

Greetings Everyone,
I received my Stampin’ Up! order today and couldn’t wait to get in my craft room and start creating. 
When I saw this darling and versatile “Little Treats” Bundle in the Holiday Catalog I knew I had to have it in my collection.
It’s soooo adorable and the photos above would be perfect as a favor at Thanksgiving for your guests or maybe coworkers or bible study friends.
My Christmas Treat is filled with Dove Chocolates and I placed two inside but definitely have room for a third. I also used the Plaid Tidings 6x6” Designrt Series Paper item #153527 also in the Holuday Catalog.
Lastly for my Halloween 🎃 Treat Holder I opened the sides a bit by adjusting the inside portion so it could hold a Fun Size M&M pouch.
I had so much fun creating with this bundle and I plan on making lots more quick and easy projects with it. 
Have a blessed day,

An Apple 🍎 A Day...

Happy Friday Crafty Friends,
I hope you are all well and staying healthy ~ Friday means finishing up the house cleaning day but first I had to create this really sweet Apple 🍎 Card and Treat Holder as a thank you gift for a sweet friend who placed her Stampin’ Up! order on my shopping page!
I am excited for fall and being that she is a retired school teacher this Harvest Hellos #150581 page 89 of the Annual Idea Book and Catalog was the perfect choice. 
There is also a matching punch available on page 167 it’s the Apple Builder Punch # 150663.
Clean and simple projects are just the ticket for this crafty gal and the little Apple holder has two Hershey Chocolates wrapped in the same matching plaid designer series paper.
Have a terrific weekend, stay cool and get your craftiness on ~ 
Happy Hugs,

Scrapbooking Fun!

Hi there friends,
Today I am scrapbooking and reminiscing about our sweet old girl Maggie. She passed over the rainbow bridge a couple years ago but it’s bittersweet to see her happy and enjoying the outdoors.
Sorry it’s sideways, grrrrrrr! 
Do you create pages featuring your pets?
We have many pages in our family album of all our fur babies because they are FAMILY!
Have a happy scrappy good day,

Hi there Crafty Friends,
I just had to share with all of you this S-T-U-N-N-I-N-G card I receved from my dear friend Kelly K. yesterday!
The picture doesn't do it justice but the sparkle and shine are simply amazing - You would never know that Kelly is new to the stamping and paper crafting world by this beauty.
I love the lace, glitter ribbon she used and the foil paper along with the glittered heart are completely up my alley, wowza!
Thank you so much Kelly, my mouth just abut hit the floor yesterday when I opened this, you are SO talented my friend...

Ep.#657 ~ Paper Sunday Journal | Review

Hi Paper Loving Friends,
I've got a different kind of video for you today - I was contacted by Paper Sunday which is a family-owned, christian paper company to check out their products and to share my thoughts with all of you!
They have many different covers available as well as calendars for men and teens.
What makes these really neat is that they are personalized with the recipients name and it is written into each piece of scripture printed on each page.
I chose this really pretty journal and I am excited to use it to make a Reading Log!
Books are my jam and I really needed a way to list out and remember what books I've read. I will share my pages once I get some completed...

Make sure to visit their online store and I will post my affiliate link as soon as I recieve it so you can save a little should you like to place an order. These would make lovely Mother's Day gifts and who doesn't love personalized goodies?!?

It’s snowing here in Chicago and was the perfect day to take down the V-Day decor and put up the darling St. Patrick’s Day decorations.

I am a sucker for candles and accent lighting - nothing says Welcome Home more than the sparkle of candles.

For this Crafty gal it’s all about making our home comfy and cozy ~

I hope you enjoyed a mini tour of my festive home and that you find some inspiration for your home.
