Happy Anniversary

August 16, 2017

31 years ago today, I married my best friend...
The one who makes me laugh, dream with and come home to.
When you hold my hand I am reminded that I am not alone in this world,
 that someone loves all of me... the good and bad.
So thankful that we are on this journey together.

Love you sweetie!

Farmhouse Style Wreath

August 14, 2017

Over the years, I have enjoyed creating decorations for our home.  By creating these handmade pieces, I have filled our home with personalized, one of a kind pieces.
Many of my home decor pieces incorporate family heirlooms.  The broach on my farmhouse style wreath was from my beloved great Aunt Ruby.  She loved wearing jewelry and coordinated her outfits with the jewelry she wore. 
(Wreath created with Canvas Corp Brands and Tattered Angels products.)

Aunt Ruby's jewelry wasn't very expenses, but these pieces are priceless to our family.

Wishing you a wonderful day, dear friends.

Really Reasonable Ribbon August Blog Hop

August 13, 2017

Hello ribbon lovers!  I am joining Really Reasonable Ribbon DT Members for the August Blog Hop.  Today, I am sharing this fun and easy project to add a little extra cuteness to pumpkin decor.
Grab one of the beautiful ribbons in the Really Reasonable Ribbon August Monthly Ribbon Club Assortment - Autumn Harvest and make a bow.   I also added bows made with Natural Burlap String.
Then I tucked under and glue the lace in the Autumn Harvest Assortment under the bow and added a button on top.
I completed it by adding a small piece of frayed burlap and button.  

I hope you enjoyed this fun and easy project.  Would you like more autumn inspiration?  Don't forget to pop over to the Really Reasonable Ribbon blog to see what all the other DT Members have been creating.  

My Favorite Things About You Layout

August 11, 2017

Have you documented what your favorite things are about that special someone in your life?   Recently,  I created this layout to showcase our son who enjoys spending time with his cousins.
He is an amazing young man who is gentle, caring and strong.
He loves spending time with his family and friends.  
When not attending college, he enjoys cruising in his Mustang GT and golfing.
(Layout using Melissa Frances products.)

Why not grab some beautiful scrapbook papers, yummy embellishments and start documenting your favorite things about that someone you love!

Wishing you a wonderful day, dear friends.

Jeanne Oliver Classes & Workshops

August 8, 2017

Years ago, my friend, Leah and I was able to attend Jeanne Oliver's workshop at Nada Farms.  After meeting Jeanne at Silver Bella years before and following her on social media, I was so excited to finally learn from her in person.
Her workshop at Nada Farms was wonderful.  Lots of fun, laughs, learn and heartfelt stories being told.  Jeanne has created an inspiring network of creative classes and workshops, along with teaching in her new Living Art Studio (which I will be attending in Sept!).  
Now Jeanne is offering a $300 art supply gift card giveaway!

Sew Beautiful Mini Album

August 7, 2017

There are some times, when I design something that is so near and dear to my heart...  this is Sew Beautiful Mini Album Kit is one of them.  
Using beautiful papers from 7 Gyspsies, Tattered Angels and Canvas Corp Brands.

And lots of yummy vintage inspired embellishments, ribbons and images.
Sewing and crafting bring back so many wonderful family memories of watching my mom sew.  For many years our mom made our clothes.  
Then sitting at the feet of our Grandma Jones as she taught us how to crochet.
The fast forward to all the crafting and scrapbooking times with my sisters, kiddos and dear friends. 
Then being able to share my passion of crafting with others has been a joy too.  
So many lovely people met and friendships formed from around the world.
Many blessings and friendships have been formed because we speak the language of the desire to create something with our hands.
I will be filling this album with all the sweet images of these memories.  
So I can document all these beautiful memories that have brought such joy to our lives. 
Do you love creating?  How about documenting your crafting memories with Sew Beautiful Mini Album Kit.  Get yours today before the sell out!
