Aloha, all! I cannot begin to tell you how busy I've been the past week or so - and it's going to continue into this coming week. After that I do believe that life should slow down a bit. I had a summer-long commitment with one volunteer organization and an early fall commitment with one another, and wouldn't you know they overlapped during the first … [Read more...] about Autumn Colors!

Aloha, all! Whew, I made it with all my Halloween Cards this year! This was not the last of the cards that I made. But I thought I'd share it with you today as it would also made a fun Thanksgiving, or just a fall-themed, card! I had a lot of fun making this card. In fact, this little scarecrow was the ONLY reason I … [Read more...] about And Finally – Happy Halloween!
Aloha, all! There's one more day until Halloween, and this is the very last of this year's last minute Halloween cards! But there's actually no reason at all that you can't use this design for just about any holiday or event - or even just for a note card with your favorite papers! All I did for this card … [Read more...] about Happy Halloween Eve!
Aloha, all! Last week a friend and I got together to design and make some Halloween cards that we could show others almost right up to the time of the holiday. I searched the Internet for ideas, and found a Christmas card design that I thought could be a lot of fun for Halloween as well - and it was quick and easy! This was so easy, in fact, that I made a bunch of … [Read more...] about Quick & Easy Last Minute Halloween Cards!
Aloha, all! I suppose I could have limited myself to just one stamp set for this Halloween and have been just as happy as if I'd brought 3 or 4 if I'd known how much I loved working with the Jar of Haunts Stamp Set! As it is, it turns out that this is really the set that I used through most of my Halloween card making, … [Read more...] about Halloween Fun with Jar of Haunts Stamp Set – Part 3!
Aloha, all! If you looked at the photo of the Jar of Haunts Stamp Set in Wednesday's blog post, you'll have noticed that there is more than one stamp that's made to fit inside that fun little jar. For that post, I included the fun little mummy-looking figure in the jar. Today's project is a bit sweeter. I … [Read more...] about Halloween Fun with Jar of Haunts Stamp Set – Part 2
Aloha, all! I've finally gotten around to making some fun Halloween cards! Can you say, "Last Minute"? Well, it's not exactly the last minute.

To begin, every … [Read more...] about Halloween Fun With Jar of Haunts Stamp Set – Part 1!
Aloha, al! Well, this is it! The "scariest" day of the year, when witches and ghosts and goblins roam the land! Ooooh, and it's a Saturday night, so I'll bet there are lots of parties going on tonight, too. The one I wish I didn't have to miss is my niece's party in Maryland. I just cannot believe what she goes through to make her … [Read more...] about Happy Halloween!
Aloha, all! As I was looking for some Halloween card ideas last week, I came across a card on Pinterest that I really wanted to CASE. Unfortunately, Stampin' Up! no longer offers square or scalloped square punches, nor have I kept any of those that have retired. If I'd seen this card a few years back, I could have had some comparable paper as well as the … [Read more...] about A Halloween CASEd Card!
Aloha, all! For the most part, I don't buy much in the way of Halloween stamps because they tend to have a limited time in which to use them. So I rely on sets that cover multiple holidays and make projects from the few Halloween stamps in them. Imagine my delight when the September 2015 My Paper Pumpkin kit had a Halloween … [Read more...] about Halloween Stamping Fun!
Aloha, all! Yikes! There are so many people I like to send Halloween cards to, and I basically have two more days to get my cards made and sent out. Mail takes longer to get to mainland destinations from Hawaii, so I'd better get on the stick. But at least I got my craft room set up enough to get some … [Read more...] about Halloween’s Almost Here!
