Cupcakes & Sweet Friends

I’m so stoked to share this find!! A friend of mine posted a fabulous cupcake like this in one of my Yahoo Groups. It’s a PINCUSHION…. perfect for my new (under construction) scrapping space! Linda Cummings makes these and sells them. I immediately emailed Linda and begged her to make me one and ziiiip it was on it’s way to my house… wooo hoo! The cupcake is so darling and comes with a little plate. Linda included a cute little…

Five Minute Cards

Five Minute Cards

I am quickly becoming a fan of “semi homemade” cards! My Grandma loves to send cards and so Mom and I made a zillion cards for my grandma when she was here and we needed some “quickies”. I made these with DCWV’s preprinted notecards… a quick stamp and a few embellishments later and we have fun five minute cards! When you’re in a hurry for a hello or a thank you, this is the way to go. Materials Used:DCWV preprinted…

Bone Scan Update & Thoughts for Thursday

Bone Scan Update & Thoughts for Thursday

“There is no such thing as a ‘self-made’ man. We are made up of thousands of others. Everyone who has ever done a kind deed for us, or spoken one word of encouragement to us, has entered into the make-up of our character and of our thoughts, as well as our success.” —George Burton Adams (1851-1925), educator, historian I have received so many heartwarming emails and it would take ages to answer each and every one, so I am going…

Prayers, Please….

Prayers, Please….

Hi Friends! I’m going to be away a good chunk of this week, but I do have some art to share this week. It’s back to crazy busy season at work, what with getting new contracts for snow and maintenance services at work for this snow season and next summer and end of the month billing prep. I get to work several days this week and then tomorrow I have a kinda scary appt at the UVRMC radiology clinic. I…

Thoughts for Thursday: Experience

Thoughts for Thursday: Experience

“Experience: that most brutal of teachers. But you learn, my God do you learn.” —C.S. Lewis (1898-1963), author, scholar, theologian Awesome quote! It’s so true, some experiences drive us to our wit’s end and sometimes we feel that we just can’t take it anymore. I am sure that we’ve all had these kinds of experiences. For me, that brutal learning experience has been the years of infertility that we’ve gone through. As ugly as the experience has been, in reality,…

RePost: Mr. Mummy

After 20+ hours in the car (thanks be to the snow storm that bumped us off our regular and SHORTER planned route) I’m back from Iowa and slowly unpacking, doing laundry and recovering from a severe case of numb bum. We got in WAY late last night or early this morning… I guess it depends on your perspective. Either way, we left on Saturday at 5:30 am Iowa time and arrived EXHAUSTED on Sunday in Utah. So while Brent is…

Studio Update: Fabric + Thread + Mom = Curtains

Studio Update: Fabric + Thread + Mom = Curtains

Greetings from Sunny Des Moines, Iowa! I’m here with Brent and Sadie visiting my family for the week. Brent was finally able to connect his laptop (with my pics on it) to Mom and Dad’s internet connection so I can finally post! YAY! Last week, Mom and I pulled out my Bernina and fabric and began making curtains for the studio. They turned out a little different than I had planned on, but I still like them a lot! I’ve…
