The sentiment “Home Sweet Home” can make you think of many things… special items in your home a spring garden and most importantly those special people and pets. This project highlights all of the special things that help make our home a “Home Sweet Home”.

Happy National Scrapbook Day…

May 2, 2009

Today I finally get to debut my “Vintage Sampler”. This is the first of many free online workshops I plan to share. For those of you who do not know about this workshop you can check it out here.

What a fun weekend…

Oct 13, 2008

This weekend I stayed in Waxahachie with some of the Maya Road girls… Caroline, Jessica, Aubrey and Wendy. I gotta tell you, Wendy taught some of the most inspiring classes all day Saturday and all day Sunday at the Crafty Scrapper. If you ever see that Wendy Vecchi is coming to a store near you I say run and sign up as fast as you can. You do NOT want to miss any of her classes.

Thanks Wendy for all the inspiration. This little album is one I created in Wendy’s Fragments class. Wendy has you bring scraps of paper, rubons and...

Sprucin’ up the place…

The buttons run all the way down the front of her skirt and look so pretty when the light hits them. I think the little bird resting on some mother of pearl buttons looks as though she is telling a few of our family secrets.
