I’m thankful to be part of the first issue of Somerset Life to hit the stands in 2016.  All my gratitude goes to the publishers at Stampington~ they present my idea and creations with beautiful photography and exquisite detail.

My Etsy shop that I began in honor of my precious son Knox, who passed away in 2014 from Cockayne Syndrome, is still up and features pieces of original art and many pretty card sets for sale. All proceeds go to fund research for CS.DSCF4565

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a chance to check out this gorgeous new issue.

Happy New Year!

Lunchbox Love Notes

Did you know that Valentine’s Day falls on a Friday this year?

I used these handy little lined index cards and made some special love notes to send along in my Valentine’s lunchbox.  Each day of the week she will find a special handwritten note in her lunch, with Friday’s including a special treat along with it.

With some simple craft supplies, it took me all of 25 minutes to whip these cards out.  You can make your own love notes using whatever craft supplies you have on hand.

Can you tell I love Valentine’s Day?

Here’s my first new stamp of 2014.   Isn’t it cute?

 

I stamped the backs of the notes, too…

Here they are!  Lunchbox Love Notes for Monday thru Friday!

 

Hope you’ve had a great first week of 2014~

Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful weekend!

Love Notes

Lots of Valentine-sy pictures have been popping into my head lately. 

I see a scene in my mind, with certain things placed just so, and I feel compelled to create it for a photo.  Staging photos is one of my favorite things to do these days, besides watching “Rick Steve’s Europe” on PBS. 

But what can I do with all of these photos?  Get them printed on cards? Coffee mugs? Doggy sweaters?  :)

I’m not really sure, but I do like posting them up on the blog to share with you.

Hope you’re having a great week!
