Squirrels Gone Nutz February Hop!

Folks, I have to tell you I have been in a crafty funk for almost a month now. I misplaced my mojo yet again and this time I had a really hard time finding it. But just in the nick of time my mojo returned from wherever it had been to bail me out so […]

December DT Post for Jan’s Digi Stamps

December??? Now how did that happen when we weren’t looking?!? One minute we’re dying Easter eggs and the next we’re lost in a time warp of sleepless nights and bad dreams, and while we’re still foggy from the sleep deprivation they sneak in December! The way the rest of this year has gone, I wouldn’t […]

Collected Crafty Collabs November Hop!

The Collected Crafty Collabs hop group is at it again, using those supplies we’ve squirrel away and forgotten about!!! The prompt this month is Christmas cards, which is easy enough… but using any texture paste, glitter paste, dimensional glaze, or mousse. Once the mojo started flowing, I had all sorts of ideas for some of […]

June DT post for Jan’s Digi Stamps Challenge

First day of the month… wait, how did we get to June already?!? What the… ??? Well, June it is. Can’t fight it, so we might as well run with it, eh? So when I think of June, I think of Father’s Day, summer, no school, and camping! We spent a lot of time in […]

Happy Birthday – a MFT Geometric card
