Say it with Flowers (stamped flowers, that is)

What's the best part of spring? The colors? The birds singing? The sunshine? Yes, yes and yes. But don't forget the flowers, the holidays and the great family time! There's also birthdays, special occassions and there's always room for a simple thank you. (Its all about gratitude, right?)
Today I'm bringing you the red floral version in the floral handmade card line I've recently created. Didn't they turn out great?! Each special, each a little different, and perfect for your loved one.

And don't forget your grads! These would make a perfect keepsake greeting card for her to cherish in her scrapbook of her special graduation day. They're even so pretty that you could frame them and display them as artwork in your home. Just a few ideas to get you thinking. I hope you start thinking outside the box as to what you can do with handmade cards to turn your house into a home. Thanks for stopping by! Cheers!

Hello and Welcome Again! Hope you are enjoying your long weekend and have taken a moment to honor our fallen soldiers this Memorial Day. Doesn't May just *inspire* you?! I love spring and all the flowers and beautiful colors that nature has to offer.  With that in mind, here is another version of the floral cards that I've created for a very good customer of mine.  As you'll see, these are the same style of greeting cards as in the previous post, but that offering different floral imagery and sentiments will offer a greater range of appreciation for her customers.  And, its just pretty! :P

This line was so much fun to create!! I love the versatility of these images and sentiments. They really can be used at any moment for any last-minute or special occasion. I hope you've enjoyed this post and its inspired you to get stamping! Leave a message below and let me know what you think! Cheers!

Welcome Back. I've been taking a break lately from my rubber stamping because I've been having to deal with life and I just haven't had the time.  Last night I busted out the stamps and created a floral line using a number of different stamps and colors.  Pictured below are a birthday card and and just because card, perfect for any occasion.


My customer specifically asked me for floral pieces, so I hope she likes these.  What do you think? Do you have anything else to add? Leave a comment and let me know! Cheers!

Questions to Spark Your Creativity

Hello! I've been trying to jump-start my creativity. A few weeks back I posted another entry which featured some great questions from a book to help get you thinking in your creative mindset.  I thought I could find some more to help get me moving in that direction again. These questions were found at Carolyn Rubenstein's blog and are some great questions to help get you in the creative mindset.  I have edited the list to fit my needs.  My answers are provided. Try answering these questions yourself and see what you come up with!

Welcome back all!
If you're like me, you have a lot of jewelry. I have a very small tabletop jewelry box and I needed some way to display my long necklaces so that I could actually see what I have. So I went to good will and found this little beauty!  How perfect is that?! I looked it up when I got home. Apparently it's a scarf holder, but I gotta say, this works better for me! I even have enough room to display my rings! Sweet! Gotta love it! I paid all of $3 for this hanger, which retails new for $24.95. What can I say?! I love good will! What do you think? Anything interesting to add? Leave a comment and share your ideas! Cheers!
