Hi Friends,

     As you have noticed for the past year or more, I have very few posts to offer.  I am considering closing my blog.  Life has taken over my time for now, and I have very little time.. if any for crafting.  I have thoroughly enjoyed the time that I was able to craft and share with all of you.  I look forward to a time when that may be able to happen again, and I will leave my blog up if anyone ever wants to come and have a look at my past work.  However, I do not foresee myself posting anything new for some time.  As much as I have loved having my blog and the friendships that I have made as a result, I do not regret that I now must focus my time on being a Mom and doing what life has called for me to do right now.  Life takes unexpected turns sometimes, and we have to do what we need to when things come our way that require our attention.  My family means everything to me, and because of that, my attention will be solely on them and meeting whatever their needs are.

     I feel very blessed to have found so many friends on here and hold those friendships close to my heart always.  I wish you all many blessings in your lives in the days to come and know that our paths will cross again sometime when the time is right.  I will end on that note and a quote :)

"The Most Important Work You Will Ever Do Will Be Within The Walls Of Your Own Home."  (President Harold B. Lee).

Hugs and God's Blessings to all of you,

Merry Christmas to all...and a few cards to share :)

Hi Everyone,
Just popping in to say Merry Christmas to everyone, and Happy New Year!
Here are the very few cards that I got made to send out this Christmas.  I just don't have the time I once did for crafting.  Maybe I will again one day, I hope, but until then, I hope you enjoy my creations and your holidays!
Take care and Christmas Blessings to all now and into the New Year!

Halloween Fall Altered Container Project Scarecrow M5D

Hi everyone.  I hope you are enjoying this crisp, fall day.  I wanted to share with you a project that I am surprised that I finished before halloween ;)  This is an altered container that I dressed up to use as a treat carrier for halloween.  I used one of the M5D scarecrow digis for this project that you can find over in their store.  It was pretty fun to make.  Sometimes I like the change in doing an altered project instead of a flat card all the time.  Not that I have even done many of those in a long time.  I am really trying to get a thing or two done in my craft room these days.  
I hope you might find a bit of inspiration here and come up with some awesome project idea for the holidays coming. 

Thank you for dropping in for a visit today.  Hope to see you again soon.  Have a wonderful day :)

Happy Autumn, Happy Halloween Card...BOO!

Hi Everyone, 
I know it's been ages since I have posted anything on here.  Life has been just too busy this past year.  I have missed you all very much though and hope to get back to blogging regularly at some point.  I hope you have been doing well.  Are you getting ready for the Fall festivities coming about?  The colors are just so beautiful this time of year.  
I needed a halloween card, so I was pushed to do a CAS card especially since I cannot find a brand new paper stack that I bought for halloween last year and have never even used yet.  I am not sure it will ever be recovered from our move.  So, I had to resort to simple white, orange and black.  It seems to have worked for what I needed, and I am happy.  
I hope to have some Christmas cards and maybe if I am lucky, even some little projects to share with you this year if time is on my side.  
Have a great Sunday everyone!  :)

Emma's Easter

She's not looking to happy to be in there, is she, but she is the one who forced herself to fit into that basket.  I would never do such a thing to her.  To be honest, all three of our cats tried to fit into there, but she is the only one that succeeded in getting her whole body in.  She has always loved to snuggle into small containers like that.  Just thought I would share the fun with you and hopefully bring a smile to your day.
I hope everyone enjoyed their Easter and Spring break.  Have a wonderful weekend (:

Poppin' in to say "hello" with an M5D release

Hi Everyone,
How are you all doing?  Is everyone taking a chance on the mega millions lottery? lol ;)  Cannot believe all the hype this is getting.  Anyway, good luck to you if you are playing.
So, onto the real subject of my post...I have made this card for the M5D releases this week.  Such a sweet, cute image.  Perfect for spring, and it totally reminded me of Pooh Bear...my favorite bear ever :)  I couldn't resist using spring colors to keep me in the mood for this beautiful time of year.
Thanks for "poppin'" in for a peek, and drop by M5D to have a look at the other realeases too.  I hope you have a wonderful weekend and Spring Break!

Spring Beauty...

Hi Friends,  I couldn't resist sharing all the beauty that I am getting to devour at our house with the early spring we are having this year.  Can you believe these summer temperatures we have been having already?   It is to get to 84 degrees today.  Wish my kids did not have to be in school and could enjoy the day outside :)
These sights are good for my heart and for my soul.  I am just absorbing all the beauty that God and spring has blessed us with.  I am sure that you are all taking in the lovely sights where you are too.  What a wonderful time of year it is!
If I am not in touch before then, I want to wish you all a very Happy and Blessed Easter.  Enjoy the warm spring/summer temperatures too.  I will be back soon...Take care :)
