Hello there,  Today I thought I’d share a little bit of my card making process. The images I’m using came from Playground, an online image generator. First I will share the completed cards.  First I ran them off on the printer and cut them to size. Next I backed them with black cardstock that was about a 1/4” larger around the perimeter of the image. (See below) Then I picked out some papers that complimented the images.  As you can see, I used studded metal-look paper I had in my stash. (You can see the main images backed with cardstock). I always look for paper ..read more

Quick Cards: Perfume and Roses
Beyond the Fringe

3w ago
Good morning, Just a quickie post. I’ve been on a notecard binge lately and just love making them. So here is my latest installment. I used Stamperia papers for these. When making quick cards, the type of papers you use are key. Each are embellished a little differently. From Nuvo drops, to jute cord, mesh, brads and adding other paper elements. The choices are fun and varied. You can add a sentiment, or like me, leave them off so they can be used for any occasion.  I rarely show the inside of my cards, but I always usually do something with it. For these quick cards I matched up t ..read more

Attic Window Quilt

I can’t believe it’s been a month, but here we are. It seems the art of blogging is a relic of the past with all the new platforms out there. My mindset is, why change what’s working? Perhaps I’m the only one out here watching anymore, but that’s ok too. With the way the world is today, I’m sure the internet will break one day too.  Things come…to pass, it seems. Meanwhile I’m over here with the things that make me happy. The Lord God, my Creator, my husband, my sons, my extended family and my friends. Plus, of course, my crafts. So I’ve been working on an old attic window quilt top tha ..read more

I was scrolling on Instagram and found the cutest little containers for little gifts or candies. The best part was that it was cheap to make and so easy! The original post was made by Maria Bauer, and I’ll post her profile link below. I’m going to show you the ones I made first.  Cute, right? Little booties with little gifts! I love them! I’ll show you how they’re made. Supplies: Paper cups  Napkins Tape Glue Cardstock  Scissors Ribbon You’ll notice I had to cut my cups down an inch or so. I could only find tall paper cups at the dollar store.  I opted to make litt ..read more

Quick Christmas Cards 2023

Hello all, To be honest, I wasn’t going to make Christmas cards this year. Twice, I went to the store and looked at boxed cards and came away without a purchase. Then I looked at my old partially used Christmas paper pads and guilted myself into making some quick cards. I made 4 cards one day, 8 the next and I have 3 on the go today.  Am I impressed with myself? No, not really. My tastes have changed over the years. I raised 4 boys and now that I’m in an empty nest everything looks much too cutesy. I wanted elegant, but that wasn’t happening with these papers. Lol.  The boys have ..read more

Retro Flash 2

Good morning, It’s been a very busy couple of weeks in this household, but I did manage to slip in some cutting, sewing and embroidering. I absolutely love these quilt patterns I’m working on. If you like sewing, applique and embroidery, these will fit the bill. The best part is that I was able to get each block pattern for free from Suzy’s Sitcom. She has many free patterns which come out every month. Do check her page out.  This quilt reflects life in the 50’s, when bowling, jukeboxes and crazy color combos were the thing.  Who wants to go bowling? These big jukeboxes were ..read more

Retro Flash!

Hello, As promised I’m sharing a few blocks from my Retro Flash applique quilt which is a work in progress. This quilt has only 9 blocks and these are the first three I made. I will be securing the edges of the applique with a zig zag as well, but for now I’m getting everything in place.  This block takes place at the Drive-in movies!  I have memories of almost driving away with the speakers still inside the car and having to back up to place them back in their holders. Some people snuck in extra friends in the trunks of their cars; plus who can forget the snack bar where you could ..read more

Good morning, November is here - - already! This year has flown by for me with all of its ups and downs, but ultimately life is good. There is a bit of a nip in the air some days, and I’m spending more time indoors than usual. Lately that means I’m getting much more sewing done. I’m here to show you the last 3 blocks in my ‘Tweet as Honey’ sew along by Suzy’s Sitcom.  It’s early here so the lighting is a bit low, but they showed up ok. I have 3 blocks and some side panels left to do on this one before I can put the back on and quilt it. I do all my quilting by free motion as I thi ..read more

Hello,  I don’t know where you live, but here in the interior of BC, Canada we’re looking at temperatures of about 40C (104F), so guess where I’m staying? That’s right, inside where it’s cool. I have quite a few birthdays coming up (why are there so many between fall and Christmas?) so I’ve been spending some time making cards. I have two done, so I’ll share those today. The first one is for my husband whose birthday is today! He’s 64 and still younger than me. Mmm hmmmm, I robbed the cradle.  I covered the writing on the inside, because you know, it’s highly inappropriate. (Kidd ..read more

Hello, It’s been extremely hot here in the interior of BC, so I wasn’t too surprised when I noticed that my freezie holders for kids were getting a lot of attention lately. These adorable crocheted freezie holders do up quickly and the kids love them. They keep their little fingers from freezing up &  getting wet and sticky. Check the sidebar for two posts with patterns included for four different holders, plus a link to six more of my freezie holder patterns on Ravelry. Links below.
