Aloha, all! "Aloha" is filled with just a bit of cheer for me and my husband this month, as we finally are getting our house ready for a move back in 5 or 6 weeks.

BUT the lava is moving slowly, and no one can seem to … [Read more...] about A Bit of Throwback Thursday!

Now Stampin' Up! is about to release Phase … [Read more...] about Decor Elements – What Fun!
