Hi, There, Stampers! I spent some time this week getting ready for some Halloween treats - no tricks! These days, I don't limit Halloween fun just to October 31st. When it's October, it's Halloween time! So when I go to a meeting of one of my clubs next week, I'm taking treats. And of course I'm using Stampin' Up! products to gussy them up. The Haunts and Harvest Paper Pumpkin Kit is ON … [Read more...] about A Halloween Paper Pumpkin Kit ON SALE!
Hi, There, Stampers! Did you hear about Hurricane Ian? Yes, we're in Florida, and yes, we did get some of the wind and rain. But other than that, things here turned out fine. If nothing else we have well-watered palms! Did you know that we do, indeed, get a good sense of fall where we live? Most of our trees are Live Oaks, which keep their leaves all year long. But there are still some … [Read more...] about A Fun Fold For Autumn – October’s Here!

But everything else is! Why Unicorns? I have a niece who, while she is a full-grown, college-educated, professional adult, still enjoys Unicorns. It's been that way since she was a child. As she grew into … [Read more...] about Happy Birthday to My Niece!
Hi, There, Stampers! I hadn't planned to share another Christmas card with the Celebrate Everything Designer Series Paper set. But then I had scraps.

Hi, There, Stampers! As you might imagine, I found it hard to put away the Autumn Leaves print from the Celebrate Everything Designer Series Paper set.

So off I went to figure out how to put the paper and the fun fold together. One Step At a … [Read more...] about An Autumn Fun Fold – Snip & Tuck
Hi, There, Stampers! It's just about time to see all the little squirrel critters running around collecting acorns where ever there are oak trees. Where I live there is a large Live Oak Tree. But as far as I can tell it's not yet producing acorns. On the other hand, the squirrels around us here in Florida don't have to worry much about frosts and snow. But up north, they'll be squirreling all … [Read more...] about It’s Time for Autumn Cards!
