Feelin' the Love

I have been busy with the other things in my life but I wanted to catch you all up on some blog love I have been getting lately!

My blog friend Susie was kind enough to declare a blog crush on me and it just made my day. You can read about the kind words she said here. There were less than 30 entries for the contest sponsored by Clear and Simple stamps as part of the Spread the Love Campaign and I felt honored to be chosen as someone worthy of a crush!


My Runway Inspired Challenge design teamie Tasnim turned the tables on me and interviewed me. Usually I am full of words, but I wasn't feeling chatty but did my best. If you want to learn more about me and read the interview, click here

I know many of you make cards purely for fun, and I do too, but I am a goal oriented kind of gal, so I had a bucket list of sorts for myself and one of them was to design for a manufacturing company. Well my dream came true. I will be designing for GCD Studios. The announcement was made in the latest edition of The Paper Cut emagazine-a free online publication by GCD Studios showing projects from their latest release. You can read the issue here, as well as check out the rest of the DT.




I am going to leave you a picture of my life right now because I know it will make you laugh. It makes me laugh too as I plow my way through life and count my many blessings along the way. Orienting to a new job and my 4 kids and and and...


When I am commenting on your cards, you can picture the above photo. My girls who are 19 months apart fight for attention like twins, so usually one takes the right lap and the other the left. My daughter Sophia is having fun crafting at the table (off camera) and my son Ben is goofing around in the background (he's the green blur). My craft room is messy but my heart is happy :)

Thank you for always commenting, encouraging, and supporting me. MWAH!
