Short and Sweet

With spring in the air, and birds chirping, pollen floating everywhere.... I found a great saying to help everyone look forward to spring and summer.

"Colors are the smiles of nature."

-- Leigh Hunt

Enjoy the colors of your spring time and nice weather.

Better things to come

I enjoy reading and thinking about inspirational sayings. They can make me think about my life and how I can make my life better. Here is a saying that makes me think of brighter days to come. A couple weeks ago I had a car accident and our mini van was totaled. Currently I am driving a rental van, but it is very frustrating when looking for a new (to me) vehicle when the money we were given will cover barely half of the cost! BUMMER!

Some of my Favorite Cards and Creations!!

I have been a long time stamper and card maker. For the past 5 - 6 years I have been creating cards and crafts for my friends to enjoy. Currently I have about 6 shoe boxes full of handcrafted cards just waiting to be shared with friends!! It is such an outlet for me to hide away in my little craft room and come up with new ideas for cards and crafts. I wish I could say that all of my ideas come from my brain, but my other love is craft surfing - seaching for new ideas from other crafters. One of my favorite sites is SplitCoast Stampers. They have so many ideas and AWESOME members with the best ideas!!! My gallery has most of my creations shown there. Check them out to see if anything inspires you!

Snow Today - forgot how hard it is to shovel!

It snowed here today in Northern Virginia (as it did all over the East coast!). As a transplated upstate New Yorker I thought I liked the snow, BUT that was years ago before kids!!! We had a good time playing in the snow and making angels, but then my little angels came in the house with snow all over their pants and boots! YUCK! It was fun watching them and I would do it again in a second just to watch them play and have a good time.
Used my $100 electric snow blower to clear the driveway and sidewalk. It is a small (but powerful) machine that got the job done. Saved my back some trouble, and the driveway is pretty much clear!! That makes me happy!
