Making Sympathy cards today. My only uncle passed away on Monday. This card was inspired by a card I seen on Pinterest. But, I can't find the card now! It had been a while since I'd did much shading and forgot how much I enjoyed it.

Thanks for looking and hope you've had a blessed day!

Are you like excited Spring is finally here! After the humdrum of winter, I am ready for Spring and all the beautiful colors it brings to us. Needing a little color in my life, I made these blocks just in time for Spring and Easter. They are made to say Spring on one side, turn them over and you have Easter! Pretty nifty, heh?

How can you make your own? You'll need 6 blocks cut in a way pleasing to use. I used walnut stain to stain the blocks. Then using the Cricut to cut the ovals and rounded corner squares, I inked the edges and Mod Podged them onto the blocks. Added a few Springy and Easter stickers and they are done! Enjoy.

Thanks for stopping by.

This basket has been in my attic close to 6 yrs now. It was placed there not long after my mom's death. It belonged to my mom. We are a family of keepers (that sounds better than hoarders). If we HAD great grandma's false teeth, they'd be displayed proudly on the mantle.

When I asked Don about bringing the basket down I took one look at it and thought, "Worthless." But, I couldn't bring myself to throw it away either. Looking for permission, I ca
lled daughter, Beth and said "...remember Grandma Nora's sewing basket?" Beth said, "The one with her name on it." Yes, someone else remembered it, too. I answered yes and asked what she thought about me painting it. She thought it was a great idea.

Now, a few hours later, I smile as I look at the basket that entered our lives in the late '60's and was always very near where my mother sat. It was always piled full of embroidery projects, quilt pieces and crochet thread and needle. The inside liner of the basket has faint coffee stains, where grandchildren anxious to get into their grandma's arms, knocked a cup with "just a swallow" of coffee into it.

After painting it and adding a few touches of my own, the basket sits proudly in my craft room, just where, Nora (aka Mom) would have wanted it. Thanks for sharing a memory with me. ~Donna

While sitting in the house near the warm fire it is easy to forget it is only 32 degrees outdoors. I look out the window and dream of summer and the warm days that come with it. When everything is in bloom and looks new. So, while I'm dreaming about summer and working on this cute little, "Cool Cat" free stamp from Hambo Stamps,

as always, thanks for stopping by!

A thinking of you card for my friend, Angie. She has been on quite a journey being ill. But, is doing better and spreading her wings a little at a time.

For this card I used: Pink cardstock, brown stitched ribbon, Cricut cartridge, Home Accents, red butterfly is Recollections, the clouds are mulberry paper stamped with light blue chalk and everything else was just in my basket of embellishments.

Like hearing your comments and thanks for stopping by.
