Happy New Year!

I want to wish you and yours the very Happiest New Year! It's been a rough year for some of us and still I feel blessed to have come through it with so much and love from my family and friends. Thank you all for being there for me this year. I love you all.

Today I just sharing a few of the cards I made during the year that were my favorites. I have so many of those. Come to think of it, I love most of my cards! It's always so hard to part with them, but I always make new ones that become my favorites again!

Have a safe New Year!

Big Hugs,

Bella Rose Is Always Fine!

That SU paper, Bella Rose, never gets tired! I love the stuff and today's card is made using several of the pieces and a nice piece of pink gingham digi paper to match! The Pure Innocence is new from MFT! Check out the new heart punch, and this fun ribbon I got a while ago at M's. Love, love, love how this card turned out!

Today Madelyn arrived bright and early at 7. Her mom is picking her up at 1 since I have to be at work at 2. We've already been out to Joanna's so she could get her new hair clip I promised her before Christmas. I said when we had a 50% coupon we'd buy it, and today was the day! Nice with feathers!

Today Madelyn will be there again but for the whole day. We have to take my car in to get new brakes and then think of something fun to do.

Have a great day!

Looking Ahead!

I'm so ready to move onto next year! It's been one of the worst years of my life and now it's almost at an end! Life is getting back to a better place for us and hopefully that will continue into the new year. With all the ups and downs for us, I've been blessed with wonderful friends and the best family ever! They have loved me no matter what, and for that my heart is full of joy. Thank you all so much!

Like the card? Too bad if you don't, I do! I love that people share online their talent. It's so nice and every month this artist shares a birthday gift. I dug out my Martha butterfly punch cause it just seemed to plain without something at the bottom of the card. Now it's for sale in my Etsy store, ready for the New Year!

I hope you all had a blessed holiday this year and were able to spend time with your loved ones. I had dinner at Larry and Tina's last night. It wasn't what I really wanted to do. I just wanted to be lazy and Barry worked all day, but it was my son and he wanted me to come, so like a good Momma, I was there. Today is wash, clean, cloth, and maybe some M's shopping later.

Have a great day and hurry back,

From our Family to Yours

Merry Christmas!

To My Friends and Family!

Barry and I want to wish all our family and friends that celebrate Hanukkah the very best this year. We love you all and are thankful to have you in our lives.

I will be going on a little break from blogging starting today for a week. I have nothing left in my stores because my wonderful family finally let me share all my cards with them and now I have to start all over anew.

Rest In Peace NOw Dear Poppy

This is a picture of a dear sweet man who passed away in his own bed during the night that he shared with Annette for over 60 years. He is at peace now. Barry's Dad was 93 years young, but when my MIL passed away several years ago, he missed her and wanted to be with her. Now he has his wish! We will be going to Washington tomorrow to be with our family. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers. It will be a hard weekend, but knowing that he is happy now will make it easier on everyone.

Hugs, P

Some Old, Something Blue

This picture is of a card I made last year, but since I haven't been busy as a bee at my desk this week, it was time to share from the stash!
Hope your week is going just perfectly and you're able to get your holiday shopping done. Madelyn's shoes should be there tomorrow and we've chosen the gift cards we want to give the kids, so all I have to do is pick them up. The only thing left is to shop for food an cook. The whole gang is coming to our home next Wednesday for Hanukkah. Can't wait for Mandy to enjoy celebrating with us.
Have a good day,

Sunday, December 11, 2011


Don't forget, hurry and grab up some holiday magic and other fun cards in my Etsy store today! I have a 20% off sale going on right now! This little gingerbread boy card is just one of the new cards in the store!

I have to work today from 11:30 to 5:45, and then I'm off for 2 days! I really enjoy meeting and talking to the people, but I really enjoy the time off too! It gives my body a chance to rest up for more! It's not easy getting old! At least I could sleep late this morning and so could Barry. He won't have a day off for another week!

Let's see, what's new in our lives---not much. We did pay the lawyer off so now we can have the papers filed for the bankrupt. That will help with everything. I'm closer to getting my first SS check, and I'm ready to move on to Valentine's Day cards! I know, it's an exciting life we lead! I do believe I'm happy with boring these days!

Hugs and happy days,

Friday Fan Favorite!

I'm so excited to have been chosen for a second time to have a fan favorite of WD! I loved working with the DT, and still continue to enjoy the digital stamps! This card uses a whole lot of scraps that were laying around on my desk. That's the fun of doing your own thing. There is no right and no wrong way to do anything creative! If I could only make a living with my cards, I'd be a very happy camper! Each year I sell less and less holiday cards, and this is by far the worst of the years. I will be putting all the holiday cards on sale in my store this weekend so I can make room for new designs. Can't wait to get my hands on a Valentine image to play with!

Barry finally had a day off today. It was nice to sleep late with no alarms to go off! We were lazy for most of the day. This afternoon we went and saw Coco and her Dad. He was of work and I need so sweet puppy love and kisses. Always makes me feel better.

Tomorrow is back to work again. Another 7 hours on my feet, but the checks are nice every Friday so I continue to work. Oh, to have been born rich instead of beautiful!

Hugs and Kisses,

Can You See...

I've been a busy girl this morning? I created 5 new cards and uploaded them to my Etsy store! Each and everyone is a small work of art, if I say so myself, and I do! Isn't Mr Rabbit funny? Can you see the new button punch I got at M's with my coupon this week? I now want more button dies or punches. On the must have list!
Today I'm off and until Saturday I get to enjoy myself away from work. I'm picking up Madelyn in a few hours but I have stuff to do first. Mail, eat, know the ususal stuff! Well, it's short today, but I'm off to see the Wizard (Barry) for lunch now. Have a wonderful day and hurry back!

It's Beginning To Feel Like Winter!

It's so cold today. I think winter has finally arrived in North Texas! We even had a few snowflakes last night. Where was this weather all summer in our 100 degree heat! Oh well, at least I have a roof over my head!
Today's card is made using one of the new images from Whimsie Doodles. I wanted the snowmen to be in a snow globe. I think it worked out just fine!
Tonight is the Christmas party from my store. They are not very PC! Not only do they call it a "Christmas" party, it's at a church! Someday the message will get to people that not everyone celebrates Christmas! I have not ever nor will I ever have Christmas---I'm Jewish! All the gang is coming to our home on Dec 21 to light the candles and have dinner. It's a first for Mandy. I hope to make a special time for her so she can enjoy the holiday for many years to come. Tina is bringing a book she has that goes over the whole thing, with prayers and all the games played. I think deep in Mandy's heart she's a little afraid of what is going to be "Jewish"! It's so common in the South to see that. Jews do not have two heads and we don't eat non-Jews!
I have to get ready for work. It's from 11-5 today and then off for 3 whole days! Yea!
Have a good day and stay warm,

Monday, December 5, 2011

Do You Believe?

OMG, what a fun digi image from Whimsie Doodles that I got today! All the new one's came out and I have to admit, I bought one of them as well, but had to have this funny one too! It took me longer to decide which papers to print and use then to put the card together, but in the end, I'm so happy with the way it turned out. This card is headed over to my Etsy store. It's time to BUY now!
I worked all weekend and I'm really tired today, and the weather is so grey and cold it's not helping me any, but I do plan on getting something done anyway! Barry is working all week and that is great for the budget. That new bed and TV are moving right up on the WISH list. We need both so bad, it's hard to choose which first. The back or the eyes!
I made a super beef stew last night in the crock pot. It just felt like hot food night. It was either chili or beef stew and the stew won out. I have enough for a nice hot lunch. Tonight is any one's guess for dinner. Barry works until 5, so I'll just have to see. I work tomorrow and then at 7 is the holiday party from our store. After that I'm off until Saturday! I can't believe I have that much time off. Madelyn is coming after school on Wednesday and maybe another day or two. I love having her to craft with. She's such a fun child. Now to see if we can get Coco this week too. That makes one happy Grannie!
Have a wonderful day and stay warm!

Go Red, White, & Blue Mittens!

What is the sense when you buy mitten brads that they all go in the same direction? I can't figure this one out! I've had the colored brads for several years and dug them out of the stash and used them on this card. I love the colors. So bright and fun! The snow folks are Whimsie Doodles, and the paper is of course digital! This card was in my store for a mere day and then it's flying off to a new home! I love my customers! They are so supportive and I am blessed to have them in my life as friends!
Yesterday Barry had his last semi-annual cancer check-up. All is well. Now he goes back in May and then again not until the next year! He'll have reached that all important 5 year level! Talk about being blessed---we are! After the doctor we shopped for food, a few new $ stamps I found at a different Wally World, and then home to a nice warm house! It's beginning to be a lot like Winter in Texas right now. Today it's cold and rainy, but since I'm working from 11-6, it doesn't really matter! I'll be indoors!
I hope to work on some new cards tonight or when I'm off next week, so wish me luck! Have a blessed day and hurry back!

New Set Of Snowmen

I just added this fun new set of 4 cards to my Etsy store. Aren't they too cute! He's a Heather Ellis snowman. She does the My Favorite Things images. I found this fun digi paper online and it seemed to match up perfectly with the cute little guy! I love doing holiday cards in different colors then red and green!

I had to be at work yesterday at 6 AM. Boy was I beat when I got off at noon! I worked as a cashier in the deli department and it was steady business all the time! Today I don't have to be at work until 10, so I could sleep alittle longer! Barry works at 9:30.

Have a good day!

LOve BlooMs!

Can you quess that was tired of making holiday cards yesterday and broke away from them? I found this sweet, sweet froggie digi paper on sale this weekend and had to have it to play with! I love using up scraps of this and that on my desk and on the Pure Innocence card that's just what the blue and green are---scraps! I pulled out my froggie set of SU stamps that are as old as the hills for the second card. I sold off a lot of SU sets, but I couldn't part with this one. It's always a winner! Both cards have been added to my Etsy store if you're interested in them!

I'm off again today from work. I have to run to the post office to mail MaryBeth's new cards to her and hit Wally World and then I'm going to be able to play a little in my happy room today! I keep saying I should have been born rich instead of beautiful---next time around!

Have a wonderful day and hurry back!



Monday, November 28, 2011

Happy Monday!

Happy Monday everyone! I'm off today and I'm going to enjoy the day! These are a few of the cards still in my Etsy store just waiting for a new home!

Have a great day!

Pre Thanksgiving Cooking!

Madelyn was very busy on Tuesday making all the chocolate candies to take to Uncle Evan's house for Thanksgiving! Nice mess she left me to clean up! After all, a girl can get tired doing so much cooking! She did have a helper to make sure everything was good, and to see if anything fell on the floor! They had such a good time together!

Thanksgiving was so wonderful. We had a family dinner at Evan's and Larry, Tina, Madelyn, Justin and his GF all eat together.

It was nice not to work on Thursday or yesterday. Barry I didn't do too much Black Friday shopping. We stopped at M's on the way home from Evan's and the only things I bought were glue and pop dots. They were out of the B plates and any new CB. Yesterday we went to the second hand store and I got some almost new pants for work. Can't beat 2.99 a pair! I was going to work on some cards last night, but my bed called me first. So now I'm off to work for the day. I work again tomorrow for a short time and then it's off for the next two days again! I have so much to do for my store. Another Hanukkah card sold, so I have to do that and then an order for a special birthday and then more snowmen! Busy Bee!

Have a great day! Enjoy the family!



Tuesday, November 22, 2011

Please Add Your Thoughts!

Today I am ever so thankful that I have the day off and Madelyn will be there soon to spend the day with me. I have to have the skin tag looked at with the doctor this morning and hopefully everything will be OK, but then it's some girl time!

I thought maybe because it's beginning that time of the year we think about what we have and what we are thankful for, I'd start a list of what I'm thankful for and you could add your thoughts to it! Please take a moment to share with us.

1. I am so thankful and blessed to have a family that loves me no matter what!

2. I am so thankful that I have good true and loving friends that care about me!

3. I am so thankful that my younger son Evan has found a wonderful and loving partner to make his life with. Mandy is a special person just for him!

Can you add your own?

Enjoy the day and hurry back!

It's Sunday Night and Where Has....

the weekend gone? I worked all day yesterday, but still, you'd think that maybe Sunday could just get a wee bit longer! Today Barry and shopped, hopped around, and finally ate some lunch! He's working as usual today, but the unusual thing is, he's working tomorrow too! He's working part of this week and all of next---nice big checks---well as big as they can be on his pay!

Tuesday I have to go to the doctors office and have them look at my eye. I've had a little skin tag for some time, but now next to that I have a puffy spot that's red. Barry is taking me before he goes to work because I'm babysitting Maddy that day. She and I have plans to make chocolate covered pretzels for Thanksgiving to take to Evan's house. I even got the peppermint sprinkles she wanted today! We will be busy girls!

I hope you like the card I've got showing today. I just finished it and I must say I'm so happy how it turned out. I collect the digi verses from one company and found the one I wanted, printed it out and then found bits of scraps on my desk to make the card work for me. I just added it and a few others to my store. Check them out!

Well, I'm off to do something right now besides craft. I ran out of glue and the craft places are closed until tomorrow. Don't worry, I only work from 8-1, so I can stop on my way home!



Friday, November 18, 2011

WOW! It's Friday

It's beginning to feel like the holiday's are coming! The air is cool and the leaves are falling---and in Texas we say Thank God and it's about time! After the record heat this summer, cool is very good! I'm off today and I've been a busy girl. I got the wash done, picked up the bird at my store, made several cards for an order, and even cleaned the kitchen! Don't you think I should have something special today as a treat? You know, maybe a trip to M's or some place like that? I feel that way, but Barry doesn't understand a trip to Michael's is better then chocolate!

Next week I'm off Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday! I'm going to short some hours, but I really don't care! I just want to have time to spend with my family!

I guess I'm off to do something creative again. You know, like make the bed with me in it!



Wednesday, November 16, 2011

Oh Happy Days...

I know it's been a few days since you've seen me, but honest, I've been busy! Ok, so maybe I did get a little nap or two in, but most of the time....

Monday I worked and then I was beat, but I did find time to create this week and these are just two of the cards I worked on. I thought it was about time I got moving on holiday cards. The image is a free clip art image that I used to make these grand looking works of art. The paper is of course, digi.

Yesterday I went and picked up the Coco girl and took her to the dog park. She found another Bully! The other little girl was only 5 months old but the same size as Coco. Our girl is such a peanut! Anyway we had a good time and both of us were sleepy after that! The picture of Coco is her trying to check to see if anyone was watching her enter the office and studio! Guess Grandma was ready for her!

Barry is working the rest of the week! OH boy. are his checks going to be good! I guess I'm off to do my thing now. Have a great day and hurry back!



Sunday, November 13, 2011

It's Such A Shame....

That I have to go to work today! It's going to be pretty and sunny, and I really don't want to be inside! Oh well, so it goes! Today's card is another using my favorite snow guys from Whimsie Doodles.

Yesterday I had to be at work from 6 AM to noon---boy was that an early day. The good thing was that I got off at noon, and was able to have the rest of the day to be home! After lunch I took a nice long nap and then made Barry a couple of Thank You cards he requested for people at work. Dinner wasn't until almost 9 last night because he didn't get home from work until late, but at least I was able to play in my happy room longer!

Evan and Mandy came home from Houston in the evening and we settle Thanksgiving plans. At their home this year! Her mom and sister will be coming up for the weekend. Nice to see them again!

Well, I have to get ready for work now, so have a great day!



Thursday, November 10, 2011

So Sometimes I Just Don't Get It...

I mean, really, why can't I have more days off then I work! Really! I finally finished off the 4th day and now I have a day off! Yea! I talked Barry into doing the wash tonight and then we'll have all day tomorrow to enjoy it together. It is Veteran's Day and we need to celebrate it! I thank goodness every day that Barry is a vet and has his health care with them. I don't know what we would have done without there help. It's truly a blessing to us!

Today I'm sharing an image that a dear sweet friend sent to me. I love it and if you want to share it to, just enjoy as well!

Enjoy the evening and stay warm!



Wednesday, November 9, 2011

Some Pretty In Pink Ribbon!

I know I should be happy---it's Wednesday and the week is almost over, but really, why do people have to work on days like these! It's cold and windy outside. It's a good day to stay home, have a nice bowl of soup for lunch and play in your happy room! It's a shame I wasn't born rich instead of beautiful! Oh well, next life!

The pretty in pink card is made using a Heather Ellis digi image. She's the designer of the MFT Pure Innocence girls as well. I love her work and can't seem to have enough. KWIM?????? The paper is from a digi collection of pink and green holiday paper.

Now I'm off to finish the invite for Barry's Lions Club holiday party. I add lots of clip art to the so now it's pretty!

Have a great day!



Monday, November 7, 2011

Yes, It's Monday!

Just got home from work and now I begin the process of taking off all the clothes, including the bra! That's the most important thing to remove after the shoes! It's jammie time again! Work was sort of fun today. I covered other cashier's breaks, so I got to move around a bit. Short day tomorrow--only 4 hours and then home to Barry!

Like the card? I saw this layout on the web and fell in love with the simple lines. Also I got to use lots of pretty papers, and that of course is the object of owning so many digital papers! At least I tell Barry that!

I'm off to nap and see what's for dinner. Steak and a veggie I think.

Have a great day!



Sunday, November 6, 2011

Lunch For Barry's Birthday!

Today was the Larry Bloom side of the family's day to celebrate Barry's birthday so we went out to Blue Mesa for buffet. Their friend Forrest joined us as well because Barry and Forrest share the same birthday! We really enjoyed the food and the nap after we came home! This is a new picture Tina took with her IPhone today of Barry, Madelyn, and Grandma! I wore some pants today that fit again, but after the buffet who knows!

Barry has gone off to work and I've been playing in my happy room. I have to work for the next 4 days and so I don't know when I'll get some play time in, but I'm sure I will. More new cards to add to the collection in my Etsy store. What treasures!

Enjoy your evening, and hurry back!



Saturday, November 5, 2011

Off To Work I Go!

Have a great day!



Thursday, November 3, 2011

Coco and The Ducks!

Yesterday turned out to be just the type of day I needed! I was at Creation Station (my studio)during the morning and worked on some new cards for the store, then around noon I packed up and went to Evan's house and got Coco. Ride, is the magic word for that dog! She was ready and waiting for her ride to the park! We took hamburger from Mickey D's. She loves the drive in because she gets to see PEOPLE! Then off to the park! It's on a minute from the house and since I don't want her to get tired, after all she is just a small (45lb) girl, we didn't go to the dog park! She just can't understand why those darn geese don't want to play with her! A real life toy! Oh well, we had a nice work and then I took her home.

In the afternoon I worked some more on cards, but not too much, and then Barry and I joined Evan and Mandy for Mexican food for dinner. It was a much needed lazy day for me. I think I'm just getting too stressed about selling my cards. I need to just let it happen. I know it's because I have more "wants" then needs these days and it tends to stress me out. So today I'm just going to play at my own speed and have a nice lazy day again! Barry is working but will be home tomorrow so maybe we can do something fun. It's been too long for us!

Have a wonderful day!



Wednesday, November 2, 2011

Do You Feel This Way Too?

If you create cards and they don't sell, do you take it personally? Do you ever feel like maybe you've lost something in your creation process? I know the market is soft and everyone and her brother want to make an extra buck, but really, should I second guess my work or what! I've been making cards for a very long time and I know they aren't as fancy as some and I don't always use the "latest" products, but I really like what I make and just don't understand why they aren't flying off the shelves! I really want to stop making so many if they aren't going to sell, but it's a hobby that I really enjoy. Even Barry last night agreed that I do it because it takes me to a place there is no stress, most of the time, but then I wonder why I "need" to make so many! Am I that stressed---oh yes, but today I'm going to unstress myself with a visit to see Coco and go feed the ducks! She really is so much fun to be with, for a dog, that is!

Today is Barry's birthday and I asked off for the day and then he was called to work today and tomorrow, so since he couldn't say no, I have the rest of the week to myself. Tonight we're going to dinner with Evan and Mandy at one of favorite places. I love local restaurants. They help support the locals and this one always makes everything fresh each day!

Well, I'm off to create something before lunch!

Have a good day,

Happy Birthday November and Ms Hubble Bee

Coco is ready for any treats that just happen to "fall" on the floor!

Do you think it's as fun as I do? Does it make you want to jump for joy? Oh silly, of course it does! I combined some neat digi elements together along with long lost punch and completed this card in record time! It's so much fun that way!

Today I'm off work and we got lots done this morning. I was finally able to get my blood work done from last week's check-up. They ran out of the small butterfly needles they need to take my blood. It seems the only sure place for me in on the top of my hands! My other veins seem to run away---from the site of needles! Then we did some other running around and finished off with the wash, so now I can enjoy the rest of my time off this week. Tomorrow is Barry's birthday but he's now working tomorrow and Thursday. Don't want to say NO to extra hours. We're having dinner at our favorite Mexican restaurant with Evan and Mandy but in the afternoon I'm planning of a nice visit with Coco. We're off to see the ducks! She loved doing that last time!

If anyone would like to get rid of or trade for the SU bird punch I would love to hear from you. I would really like it and can't afford to spend the money right now. I have lots of things, but maybe someone would really like the gingerbread punch that's just like SU punches! Let me know if you're interested!

Thanks and enjoy the day!

Thank You Michelle & MaryBeth

Thank you both for taking the time to read my blog and leave some love! You guys are the best, so please send me your snail mail address and I'll mail some love back at you! I know you'll enjoy the ribbon!

Today's card is made using some digi elements and paper I got several weeks ago from a freebie. Don't you love freebies! And since I'm just learning how to unzip my files and print out what I makes me so happy!

I'm off to work for another long day, but then I'm off until Saturday!

Have a great day!



Friday, October 28, 2011

Back To Work!

Thank goodness it's Friday, except I have to go back to work! I have enjoyed the days off and next week it gets even better! I have to work the whole weekend and Monday, but then I'm off from Tuesday until I go back to work on Saturday! When you question the crazy way our work days are...the only answer is that the computer does it and the mangers don't have anything to do with it! It's OK for now, I'll take the days off to work on cards for the holidays for now! Speaking of cards, do you like this one? I used some digi elements along with digi papers and---fun card! I just how you can play with the digi elements! I'm getting better at this!

Anything doing for the weekend? No plans at the Bloom Zoo---work all weekend for both of us.

Take care, feel free to leave some love---it doesn't cost a thing and maybe they'll be a little love in return! Would you like some new wrinkled ribbon? Leave the love and I'll draw a name on Monday!



Wednesday, October 26, 2011

I'VE Been Busy!

I know I've been MIA for several days, but these are just some of the cards I've been working on! Monday I worked all day, and then when Barry was at his meeting in the evening, I got all my papers and images together to work on this week! If only things would ever work out just as you plan them, then I would have been a happy girl! As you so well know, nothing ever goes as planned! Yesterday we spend all morning doing "stuff" that needed to get done, so that left the afternoon. Barry has a friend in the hospital, so he went and visited him in the afternoon and I started creating. This morning we were up early to do the wash, and then back to my creation station! If only I didn't have so much digi papers and images, it would make my choices so much easier and I wouldn't spend half my time trying to decide what I want to use! If you have time, jump over to my Etsy store and see what's new!

Much love to you all for all the kind B'day wishes left on Facebook for me and the emails were great! I had a great day!

Have a wonderful night!

Happy Birthday To Me!

Yup, it's that big day! 62 and able to get my Social Security! How on earth did I get this old! Oh yea, I'm married to a guy who is MUCH older then me and it must have rubbed off on me! Next year I'll be back to my usual 33! We're having dinner at Evan's so we can see Mandy's new ring and of course I can see Coco. She's the real reason for going to his house! I really love that little girl!

Like the card? It was made using a digi image along with digi paper. It's such a fun card IRL and the bit of ribbon and stick pin are perfect touches!

Well, I'm off to do something fun today for my special day. I'm having lunch with hubby since he has to work tonight. We're going to Jersey Mike's for subs!

Birthday gifts are excepted with love! Just kidding, but if you've a mind to....

It's Friday and I'm Tried Already!

It's early, only 8 AM, so how can I be tried already---well---I have to work standing on my feet for 7 hours today! I like work, but not long days! I think every day should be a 4 hour day! Won't that be grand! Oh well, I have 4 days off next week and 3 long ones again! More time to create. I love how this card looks. I used a sweet snow girl from Whimsie Doodles and some fine looking digi papers.

This Sunday is my birthday and I don't know how I'm going to spend it yet, but sleeping late will start the day! I can't believe I'm going to be 62! I told the boys that next year I'll be back to 33 since I want to get my Social Security this year! It starts in December and in January a raise! How lucky is my timing!

Well, I'm off to eat something before work. I'm babysitting Madelyn tomorrow night. I can't wait. It's a girls night since Barry is working. We'll do dinner and crafts, with a stop at Michael's first.

Have a great day and stay warm!

Yea, Another Day Off To Create!

I just got 8 cards uploaded to my store. Now I know that's not enough to go on vacaction with, but it is a start! This Riley stamp is several years old, but still lots of fun to play with!

Enjoy and hurry back!

What a Way To End The Day!

This is a picture of my younger son Evan and his newly engaged girlfriend Mandy! He popped the question today and of course she said yes! We are so happy for them both! Can't wait to give them a big wet puppy kiss!
