Proverbs

   As we approach the New Year, I think this quote is fitting. I have always loved proverbs and the power of words to inspire every high and meaningful aspect of living and creating together. Do you have a favorite one you would like to comment and share?

Tea Time

   A couple of cards to try out my new Vintage Tea Cup set from Altenew! These were part of an invitation/gift to my daughter to sit, chat, sip, and make tea cards--all of our favorite things together.

It's a Western Wonderful Life


Merry Christmas--and wishes for good health, happiness, and prosperity during all the holidays you might celebrate! I thought I'd digress from paper crafting to share a little bit of cheer--Big Sky Country style! In our town they hang the Christmas bells over three intersections in the middle of Main Street. 

Then, Santa's horse-drawn wagon is pulled down the road and the whole town turns out to stroll behind. It's just so downright festive, fun, and neighborly one can hardly believe it still happens.

   Wishing you peace, light, and love.

Almost There...


   I love these nostalgic table linen images from Papertrey Ink, and the Hello die cut from WPlus9. So many ideas and color combinations to use them--I think I need to make some Christmas ones. What do you think? 
   This sentiment is one of my favorites. Any season, any color and it's a go-to addition! Time to mix it with some snowflakes?
   More images from Papertrey and an old Stampin' Up! floral for the background to make a CASE from Aga's lovely work. 
   Now that I'm all caught up with sharing, stay tuned for some holiday fun coming soon. I'm unpacked in the studio and off to spend the day creating. Hope you are well and in good spirits wherever you are!
