My Cutie Patooties!!

I tend to be a more private person when it comes to my family. So, when I started my blog last summer, I wasn't sure how much "personal" information I wanted to share. As it turns out, I've found myself using my blog mostly to post information about my papercrafting hobby and business. However, last weekend, my family adopted a new puppy and I can't help but post this picture of he and my beautiful daughter. I know I'm biased, but aren't they just the CUTEST pair you've ever seen!!!

I will be teaching how to make these cards on May 1, 9:30 a.m. at the Kingstowne Center for Active Adults. If you would like to learn how to make these or any other cards, just contact me at ...I would love to show you how!!

Crafting for a "Celebrity"

Boy oh I WAAAAYYYYY overdue for a new posting!! So, I thought I would highlight my newest card that I finally completed this past weekend. I say "finally" because a friend of mine, Trish, commissioned me to make this card, along with a couple dry erase boards, back in late February. So, during my time off last week, I got down to business and here is what came out of it.... Trish and her family are headed to Canton, Ohio this August to attend the NFL Pro Football Hall of Fame induction ceremony that will honor Floyd Little, nickanamed The Franchise, for his years of playing on the Denver Broncos. Trish is very friendly with Floyd's daughter, Christy Jones, who lives in the Washington, DC area. Congrats to Floyd "The Franchise" Little!!!! Hope he likes the card.

Here is one of the dry erase boards I made for Trish to give as a going away gift to another friend and her family...

All I can say is...Poor Kevin!!!!!
