About Me

Paonia, CO, United States
I have discovered that life is a roller coaster and I'm learning to enjoy the ride! I am a married mom of 4. I work part-time outside of the home and, of course, more that full time as a wife and mother! I do classes from my craft room in the basement...which is why we call it the "Craft Cave."

Do you ever see a set pictured in a catalog and think to yourself, "Not much there. What would I ever do with that? Don't like it..."

Then, you see a sample of a project or two.... and suddenly the set makes your "gotta-have-it" list.

This was one of those sets for me.

This card is a case from another demonstrator (sorry I don't remeber who you are, but you posted on TAC Art Scans) Anyway, that's when I fell in love with this set. I simplified the sample as it was a card we did in the first Christmas Stamp-a-stack. Of course, this is another one of those discontinued sets. (But I'm only trying to give you some teasers to encourage you to come to THIS years Stamp-a-Stack.) The silver stickles around "JOY" don't show up very well in the photo, but take my word for it, they really make the card POP in person!

A very simple Christmas expression: JOY.

Where do you find your joy? How do you create joy for others? Is JOY the secret of keeping Christmas spirit alive?

....sorry....having one of my philosophical moments...I'm back now!

For all you locals in Delta County, CO...The Scrappy Moose is opening today!! HOORAY!!!! Go in and say "Hello" to Carol & crew and perhaps I'll even see you there!
