Par for the Course

A new month means a new Buffet!  This month the colour palette just screamed golf to me. Although I'm not a golfer, my husband sure is.  He's either playing it or watching it or talking to his friends about it.  (That is, when it's not hockey season of course!)  At one point we had reached … Continue reading Par for the Course

Toothless Grin

Happy Friday!  Toothless Grin was inspired by youngest daughter, who recently lost her first two teeth within a day of each other.  It was a very exciting couple of days at our house.  That tooth fairy sure had to scramble for some loonies and toonies  (that's one and two dollar coins for you non-Canadians out … Continue reading Toothless Grin

In Vino Veritas

Hello!  I'm here today to show off my latest collection to you.  In Vino Veritas sums up nicely the fun I have with my friends... laughing together, being silly together, and enjoying some great wine together.  We take an annual trip to the Okanagan which is the wine country of southern/central British Columbia.  To be … Continue reading In Vino Veritas

Some News and Newish Goodies

First the news... after a great deal of thought I have made the very difficult decision to close my store at Scraps N Pieces.  It wasn't easy, to say the least.  I've made so many wonderful friends at SNP and met many of them in person at the retreats.  I do plan on still visiting … Continue reading Some News and Newish Goodies

Comfort and Joy

Are you all ready for Christmas?  I've finished all of our prep work and now just have to wrap. Typically I throw on "It's a Wonderful Life" and wrap the night away (after the kids are asleep, of course!)  It's one of those little yearly rituals that bring me comfort. Christmas is a time of … Continue reading Comfort and Joy

I can say that this is one of my favorite sets to date!  The theme is all about letting your self shine, and being proud of who you are.  You are a beautiful and amazing person with the whole … Continue reading Shine Your Light

Crazy Busy

Hi there... been a while!  I've been so busy that I've barely had time to design,  let alone advertise. I do have a new release for you today, ironically called "Crazy Busy."  This was originally meant to be part of the July Bit's N Pieces over at SNP, but I just didn't have time to … Continue reading Crazy Busy

King of the Grill

It's a rite of summertime... the sun starts shining and suddenly the men-folk don funny aprons and turn into gourmet chefs.  A hot grill and often a cold beer combine to make one happy man! Standing over a grill, a man can feel like a "real" man providing meat for his family.  (And let's face … Continue reading King of the Grill
