Busy! Busy! Busy!

Hello everybody! Sorry it's been a few days since my last post, but I have been busy with all kinds of holiday projects. Truthfully, this time of year, I will only post every few days. I have lots of holiday orders to fill and a big show coming up that I have to have lots of stock for! However, I know you come here for ideas and inspiration, so without further ado, here are a couple of things to view for some creative delight:
This is the birthday card I made for my dear friend, Emily. She is the friend that you can always count on for anything: to pick up your kids, dinner if you're sick or had a baby, the shoulder you can comfortably cry on, a counselor, a good advice giver, and the friend you can call at 7:00 a.m. I know you're jealous and wish you had a friend just like her! Actually, I hope you do... everybody needs an "EMILY."
The last couple of days, I have been creating Christmas cards. Here are TWO that I made that are instant faves!
I love the bold pink and green color on this card. It's just a bunch of green paper strips to form a tree and a circle and star punch for ornaments. I think the rounded edges makes it interesting.

The Stocking Card! Ooo... love this. Lot's of pretty things to look at! The brown paper is for a "mantle" look. Mom suggested the chocolate ribbon and raspberry trim- they are beautiful together! Thanks, mom!

Both of the cards above will be for sale at the Temptations Holiday Boutique coming up on November 17-18-19 in Louisville, KY. Hope to see some of you locals there!

And, last, but not least, my little chickens on Halloween:


  1. So sorry that your little guy had a spill on Halloween! Liam has an oversized UofL jersey just like that - wish I had known, I could have lent it to you. I meant to tell you how fabulous your entry way is - I could so use your creative eye! Have a great day!

  2. Emily is lucky to have you for a friend, too. Loved ALL of the cards, but especially loved the picture of my little goblins. What a great picture in front of your vintage pumpkin collection!

  3. ok, i'm pretty sure the friendship thing goes BOTH ways and that you are equally attentive to emily... & certainly the evidence of the amazingly lovely birthday card would indicate that i am right! :)

    love♥LOVE♥loooooooove your gorgeous xmas cards too! i've had a couple of paper strip/torn paper tree ideas floating around my head AND i even got as far (mentally) as punched circle ornaments...but STARS!!!! holy mackeral, stars as ornaments are BRILLIANT. i am stealing this outright, i will make that plain from the get-go! (& of course i will link & give credit!) ♥♥♥

  4. I am just reading this for the first time :) Oh boy, what a good friend you are for even writing this! And I loved my bday card! The feelings are all mutual...may we be blessed to have each other always! Love you! Emily
