Shabby Chic is In!

I put together another little Shabby Chic Birdhouse and placed it on my Etsy Site.  I also put together a Treasury of several awesome Shabby Chic items...too much fun!  I hope you'll stop by and see the adorable things that America has to offer.

I couldn't resist adding the Watering Pitcher to the mix of Shabby Chic designs.  So pretty in creams, pinks, and blues.

Thank you for stopping by and may the Lord bless your day, evening, and forever!

Psalm 18:32-34 the God who equipped me with strength and made my way blameless. He made my feet like the feet of a deer and set me secure on the heights. He trains my hands for war, so that my arms can bend a bow of bronze.

Nifty Card Closures

I was looking for some new ideas for card closures and ran across this YouTube video.  This gal had a really simple idea for adding a closure to your cards, albums, and scrapbook projects.
One of the things I love about crafting is that there are so many talented, innovative people out there to give you ideas and add to your fun!

Many thanks to Kellie Murton for this quick video!

I'll definitely be using this on future projects; I'm sure you'll do the same...easy, fun, and adds just a little punch to your designs.

When You Want To Say Thank You

Have you ever had someone do something for you that is just too special to let slip by?  Those times when that special person or persons has been there for you time and time again and you really want them to know how much you appreciate them.

I do! Even when the world seems upside-down; there are still those people who come through for you time and time again!  Those are the ones that deserve something unique, original, and just plain special.

I've created these beautiful cards for just those people in your life.

Within the card is a short verse that says, "My heart is full of thanks and it's all because of you."
I've left room for you to add your own sentiment of thanks and love.

Thank you for stopping by and being here for me!

New Birdhouse for Your Mantel


I finally have a new birdhouse to add to the collection.  I've decided to get started on my crafts again!  I've missed it so much.

Our new birdhouse has a beautiful blend of peaches and creams....yummmm!  It's not for outside....Keep it for your mantel or your windowsill.  Collect them... and show them off!  I'll even customize a collection just for you.  Just send me an email!  Tell me what colors you love and how you would like it decorated.

Thanks so much for visiting!  I'm so glad you stopped by :)

Blessings to you!

A Trip to the Zoo

A little while back I had a chance to take a trip to Alabama.  My daughter, my husband, and our beautiful granddaughters wandered around the Birmingham Zoo and had the time of our lives!  We even rode the camels...and let me tell you something...those humps are as hard as rocks!  I kid you not!  Hard as rocks!!  I wouldn't be able to take much of a journey on those buggers.  I mus admit it was really fun!

By the end of the day our little one "Malia" was tired and just wanted to take a nap.  Our oldest Kiani rang the bell announcing our arrival!! Both the girls fell asleep on the way back to the house.

It was a great day!

I've grabbed a couple of photos and quickly laid them out with my "My Memories" software.  Man, I love this program.  When you make the purchase you have the opportunity to become an affiliate.  For every software program you sell, you receive a very nice stipend.  So please, if you have any interest at all use this code when ordering STMMMS62443.

Thanks for stopping by and visiting.  Blessings and joy everyone!

Now Accepting Credit Cards

Esty has offered sellers the ability to offer a credit card option to their buyers.  I've just signed up.   It just seems, that in this day and age we need to provide every opportunity to our buyers, and this is a super idea from Etsy.

Basically, we fill out an online form agreeing to the "fees" associated with the program and "voila" were up and running. Initially it takes 10 days for the first funds to process and after that things are pretty immediate.  If you're associated with Etsy, I'd definitely recommend this program.

I'm excited to have the opportunity, through Etsy, to provide you with this service.  Thank you for stopping by and I hope to see you at the shop!

Blessings to you always,
