Sandy Lighthouse

Yesterday evening I was catching up on emails and things and I found out that a friend was diagnosed with breast cancer yesterday.  She had been getting things checked out at the doctor and her results were in yesterday.  She is having a mastectomy on her left breast on Wednesday.  I can’t imagine how she’s [...]

Birthday & Turkey Tutorial

Yellow Roses for Grammy

I got a new set to play with!  One of the things that arrived in my SU! box (in addition to my Holiday Mini pre-order) was the set “A Rose is a Rose”.  I’ve been debating about this one for a while and finally I caved in.  I was so excited when it arrived that [...]

Scrapbooking Success on a Shoestring Budget

Scrapbooking has captured the hearts, imaginations, and it has to be said, the pocketbooks, of many artistic crafters. How often do we scan the sales flyers of well known craft stores? Our eyes light up when we see just the item which we want listed there. Yes! We are on our way, but alas how [...]

Shhhh……it’s a super small sneak peek!
