People with a strong sense of gratitude, love and appreciation don’t necessarily have more than others; they aren’t “luckier”. They simply recognize and see more beauty in their lives. People who count their blessings are generally happier and healthier than people who don’t. If you ever feel as if anything in your life isn’t “enough”, try practicing an attitude of thankfulness. You might realize how good you have it, after all.

When I make a card, I realize the beauty I have when feeling my papers and ink between my fingers, the sound of the blades precisely cutting my papers, all my senses are working in tandem. My mind continues to work. I will continue to inspire, create and share with you.

sneak-peek-novemberHere are the cards for November. They are colorful. Using some un-traditional colors, some new and old stamp sets, embossing powders, new papers and as well as ribbons and threads.

Also in use will be beautiful acetate papers.

Not enough to peek your fancy, come for Part 2 on December 3. You can actually sign up for both classes at the same time.sneak-peek-decemberSpotlight on Stamps Sets!


The wilderness awaits is a stamp set for that masculine card you are always needing to make.
