2019-2020 Annual Catalog is here!!

Oh Wow!  I cannot believe its already June!  This year is just flying by so fast!  However, instead of dwelling over things I could have shared before but didn’t, let’s just dust ourselves off and pick up and try this again.  Today is the launch of the new Stamping’ Up annual catalog. I am really excited over the content of this catalog!  Mourning the retired products never lasts that long because I can’t help but be so inspired by the new stuff and I have to say that this years catalog has so much inspiration!  Honestly, I think I want to set a goal to recreate every bit of artwork.  Oh, that could get me into some serious trouble.  No way could I ever purchase every stamp set; however, maybe if we get creative we can use every idea in some form or fashion as inspiration for what we do have.  Hmmm, something to think about.

Meanwhile, I wanted to share this really fun video Stampin’ Up put together for us to share.  It’s really short but you will want to hop right up and get to crafting after you see this fun inspirational piece!

Isn’t that fun?  Let’s make this year the best stamping year yet.  I’m excited about setting new goals for myself and planning out projects and content.  My number one goal this year is consistency.  Not perfection. I miss out on so much when I get hung up on perfection.  That isn’t fun at all!!  Let’s get crafty and make pretty things 🙂

The Journey Begins

Welcome to my new paper crafting website.  This hobby has been my favorite of mine for many years.  I have made hundreds (if not thousands) of cards to send to loved ones, donate to charities and to give as gifts.  I have learned how to take my products and create home decor, gift packaging and works of the heart for many to enjoy.  As my children are now older, I find myself in a new season of life with a new energy to expand my hobby into a resource which enables others to discover the rewarding benefits this creative outlet has to offer.   Please be patient as I build content.  I have a very large vision for this website, but I know it will take time and I hope you stick with me and visit often.  I welcome requests for tutorials, product tips, techniques, etc.  I hope this website will be a complete and convenient resource for new and seasoned crafters alike.  Thanks for joining me in my journey! We are going to have a FABULOUS time!

What about that name, you ask?  You see I have been a city/suburb girl all my life but when I married my husband we had this dream to one day own a country home, with a big front porch and a few acres of peace and beauty where we can grow old (one someday run “Grandma Camp”).  Two years ago we realized that dream and we began our transition into the country (which is really just on the fringe of the suburb we used to live in).   As our children continue to grow and leave the nest we decided to expand our little family.  We now have a lively Golden, named Rosie, and 10 adorably active chicks that entertain us on a daily basis.  They are now part of our family and will likely creep into my posts, as they do love attention and they are quite photogenic!  We love to have fun on our little growing farm.
