Here is a card that I made yesterday. It is inspired by one that my friend Pam made for me. The stamp and rub-on are from Heidi Grace and the paper is from K & Company and Stampin' Up!. The center of the flower has Stickles on it.

Table Settings

This is the table that Elissa set for our anniversary dinner.

This is the table that Elissa set for New Year's eve.

This is the table that Elissa set for our Christmas dinner.

Elissa has quite the flair for setting the table. We love to watch Semi-Homemade with Sandra Lee, to glean from some of her wonderful ideas.

Autumn Embroidered Tea Towel

Here is a tea towel that I made this last Autumn for my kitchen. I used some free patterns from Pattern Bee.


Here is yet another card that I used my new Cuttlebug on. This time I used background paper to emboss. I think it turned out cute. The stamp on the tag is from Stampin' Up!. The center of the flower has Stickles.

Sweet Treats

Here is another card that I made recently with my new Cuttlebug, which I totally love!! Can you tell that I love pink and brown?! The scoops are made using a technique called paper piecing which is very fun. I used a product by Stamping up called Crystal Effects for the glass dish and the chocolate syrup and cherry. It gives them a raised glassy effect. The paper and stamps are from Stampin UP!.

3 year old fun

This is what happens to your poor snow woman pincushion when your 3 year old son finds himself alone in the craft room! ;o)

Snowman Throw

I blanket stitched this fleece throw back in early November. This throw is 2 1/2 yds and I rounded the corners and used green crochet thread to do my blanket stitching. This was the first time that I did blanket stitching.


Here are a few pouches that I made this fall. Elissa made the zipper pulls. We make a great team!


I knit this scarf for my mom for her birthday. The yarn is Debbie Mumm from JoAnn's.

I crocheted this scarf for Elissa for Christmas. The yarn is Vanna's Choice. I love how soft it is.

Birthday Gifts

These are the gifts that I gave to my friend Jennifer for her birthday the other day. The cupcake card in the previous post went with these.

The tall tin is filled with my Triple Chocolate Mint Cocoa, the mini tin has mini Reese's peanut butter cups and the bag is filled with Hershey's nuggets. I am sure she appreciated all of the sugar that I gave her on New Year's day, the day most people vow to not eat so much junk! ;o)
The stamps and paper are from Stampin' Up!
