hey dad father's day card

I am still obsessed with the Anita Jeram Stamps and Die sets from Colorado Craft Company. I grabbed one stamp set and created 3 different cards. I LOVE making different cards from 1 stamp set! I feel like I get my money’s worth!

In my never ending search for NON-toxic products for your home and body…I discovered Pipette Baby. Pipette Baby has amazing non-toxic products for babies and kids.

house in the middle of a corn field

A house. A home. The American Dream…to own and not rent. To be your own boss in your humble abode. To be able to paint your walls with chalkboard paint, add new cabinets, and throw away that nasty old tub….without having to call maintenance and get permission for, well….anything.

I am a cat lover. In fact, almost everyone in my family loves cats too. So, when My Favorite Things (MFT Stamps) released these cat stamps and dies I just HAD to buy them. You get that, right? They were all in a MFT Stamps kit which includes an inspiration guide with photos.

My husband and I recently watched the Mr Rogers movie.  The one with Tom Hanks. It was not at all what I thought it would be. For some reason I assumed that it was going to be like a documentary of his life. It was not.  It was much more than that.  And I loved […]

Colorado Craft Company and Anita Jeram have HIT. IT. OUT. OF. THE. PARK. AGAIN. In my humble opinion. They came out with a bunch of new stamps last winter…and have continued to release them over the past 3ish months. I LOVE the illustrator style of coloring. Right up my alley – NO blending. Harsh lines […]
