Crew
Yeah, we started all this!

Can't even begin to tell you how much I love my wild, crazy family!  They truly bring me the most joy in my life.  Who knew when we married nearly 32 years ago, that we would end up this happy?!  It is awesome to be married to your best friend in the world and even more rewarding to see your children find their "one and only" and have their own happy families.  We are certainly not perfect, but I do believe we are perfect for each other!  I will count my blessings - beginning right here with my incredible family!  Love them!  

Thanks for stopping by - hope you have found your own little piece of heaven.  It's worth the searching for....

Latest Card Projects

On rare occasions I "work" like this!  I figure card-making "qualifies" as working since I use my cards for clients and agents alike.  I've been so slammed for the past 3 months I haven't had time to breathe!  Nice to still be busy and be able to breathe at the same time.  Hope to keep "working" like this.


I made 16 of the card above.  Super simple and done relatively quickly.


I made 24 of the card above.  More time consuming - lots of little pieces, but nothing hard about it.  Funny thing about this one is I "copied" it from another card and was not as happy with my owl stamp as I was with hers.  When putting the stamps away-I discovered I had the very same owl stamp as she had used on the original card - STUPID!  Oh well, there is always next time...... 

 Maybe that indicates I have too much stuff - nah!  NEVER!!!!!
