Pumpkin Delight

Pumpkin Delight

This week I’ve been having some fun shopping for fabric and drawing up patterns for some ideas for future projects. I have all these ideas rolling around in my head and I’m trying to stay off the computer and actually DO some crafting 🙂  It’s fall and I am so ready for the colors and textures and crisp  cool air of fall, but it’s been in the 90’s this week. Yes, I know we live in a desert, but it’s…

Strength of a Woman

Strength of a Woman

For all my beautiful and wonderful sisters!  Thanks to Beverly for posting this on her FB profile yesterday!  Quoting Bev .. “Love this song Shaggy, but where’s my big and beautiful white women represented? LOL!” It’s a catchy and uplifting little tune.  I hope you enjoy it! ~Inky Smiles! [youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mILsx_c-vXw&fs=1&hl=en_US&color1=0x006699&color2=0x54abd6]

What Hoot!

What Hoot!

So I’ve had this hankering for the past several weeks to SEW something.. something other than paper…. Poor Bernie (my Bernina Activa 240) has been staring at me from where she’s been sitting on the floor in my studio and I swear if she had puppy eyes, she’d have been using them… LOL!  ANyway.. yesterday I was perusing the internet and came across a fun little project on the Fiskars website.  Oooh La La!  I found me a project.. and…

Yellowstone: Grand Prismatic Pool Area & Candy Winner

Where In The World?

Where In The World?

I have been on a much needed vacation with my sweet husband in one of the most beautiful places on God’s great earth.  We just returned home this evening and I couldn’t resist starting to edit pics. Can you guess where we went? Bonus points if you can tell me where EXACTLY this is in this great place we vacationed. 🙂 Leave me a comment and your guess and I will draw a name on Sunday for a fun little…

On Commenting…

On Commenting…

Hey friends! Just popping in to let you know that I have changed the way I do comments here at Inky Smiles.  For the longest time I had the word verification… but if you’re like me, that’s really annoying and you don’t usually comment when you have to go through the extra steps of word verification.  So I took that feature off Inky Smiles’ comment form.  For a while it was ok, but then I was getting the ickiest comments…

Butterflies, Love Bugs & Jewelry

Hi Friends! It’s been a busy few/several weeks here at the Inky Smiles house.  We’ve been CANNING (tomatoes, peaches, cucumbers). ‘Nuff Said. LOL! However, I did find some time to spend in my studio and play around with some crafty things. My friend, Jeanne, had a birthday last week and I had this little gem ready and waiting to be sent to her for the longest time.  I cut out butterflies from misc papers from my stash and placed them…
