A PUNNY Halloween!

Even though I do adore a good scare and will always visit a Haunted House this time of year, I’m not one for creepy scary bloody costumes and decorations.  I’m more of a fun- Charlie Brown- Jack Skelington kind of gal.  And a good pun? Halloween is a perfect time to get candy-corny! LOL!  That […]

Halloween Bash!

Fall has kicked into full gear- and if you’re like me- you are soaking it all up with a Caramel Salted Latte in one hand and your camera in the other. Good stuff. This week you’ll find the FALL LOVE PENNANTS in the Shoppe.  I wanted to make a fun fall accessory for your scrap stash this week- they are terrific […]

Getting into the “Spirit” of Halloween

Without fail, the first crisp October day I need to go up to the attic and pull out the cozy sweaters, it’s officially Halloween Season around here! I LOVE Halloween- I always have.  I grew up in an apartment building in NY, so we didn’t have a font porch to decorate, or even windows anyone […]

Simplifying December with Traveler’s Notebooks

Especially this time of year, when there are so many stories to be captured- I wanted to make it a point to scrap more often- to tell more stories- but in a simpler way. I love Project Life- and I am a big fan of mini books. It’s only natural then that my attention has […]

craft the joy of WEEKEND VIBES

These days my thoughts have been turning more to the comforts of home-and that comfy vibe worked it’s way onto the drawing board in my new design-WEEKEND VIBES!  It’s filled with all the cozy joys of being indoorsy on the weekend- books, warm cups of goodness, bagels to brunch on, a fireplace to cuddle by and […]

craft the joy of HOWL-O-WEEN

Who said Halloween is just for kids? It’s one of my favorite holidays because of the sheer fun of it all! I love the weather, the pumpkins everywhere- spooky movie marathons- and seeing all the kiddos in their costumes! And of course- all that candy!  And you know who else loves Halloween? The four legged […]
