Scrapbooking, Cardmaking & WalMart

I spent the evening at a meeting of the Norman Downes Women's Club and I learned so much…who my new neighbor is, the plans to divert a major road near my home and that WalMart has a Black Friday sale before Black Friday…who knew? In between, we did manage to look at some scrapbooking, cardmaking […]

Need A Laugh?

This has been a busy, confusing week for me and I so appreciated seeing two things that made me laugh right out loud. I thought y'all might need a giggle, too, so before we have a look at today's samples… The first humor moment was when I read an email from Cindy Marchant. Her tagline […]

Anything But A Card

I was going through some of my Convention photos today, and was reminded of how many displays there were of non-card projects. Calendars, purses, banners, books, tins, frames and more! You can be sure that some of these projects will make an appearance at my Stamp club meetings.   It's not too early to start […]

Most of us scrapbook, but we also have people who make cards, do beading or create 3D projects like jewelry and gift items. This year was a blast […]

Good Intentions

I'm already looking towards January and New Year resolutions. I know, I know — a recipe for disappointment — setting high goals and ultimately feeling badly when I don't meet them. This year, however, I am determined to keep my goals modest and attainable. One of those goals will be to complete two scrapbooks. I've […]
