What would we do without a greeting......card?

I just love to make my own greeting cards. There are endless possibilities. You can personalize them to fit the person or the occassion.

Getting ready for Christmas in July

I have been working on my Christmas cards and have a good start on them. My goal was to make two cards each week and then I should have enough when it is time to send them out. So far I have met that goal and exceeded it. I never hurts to have a little cushion. I really am having a ball putting these cards together. I have some more for viewing. I hope you enjoy seeing them as much as I enjoy creating them.

Another cute card

Here is another card that I made for my sister. I thought it turned out real cute. We both love to shop and so this card is very appropriate. Hope you like it.

My attempt to post one of my cards

I am going to try to post one of my cards that I made. I have been working on some cards for the holidays. I know it is still summer, but if I make a couple Christmas cards a week by the time I need to send them I will have enough. Christmas cards help to keep me cool in this summer heat.  I have many ideas for cards for the holidays so I know I will enjoy this project. Well here goes to try and post a picture. It looks like I may have succeeded. I hope you enjoy seeing my work. It sure is fun creating these cards. Until next time - have a wonderful life (from the movie of the same name) how Christmasy is that!

Cards, cards and more cards

Today I had friends over for a card making party. It was great fun for all and oh the cute cards that were made. I love hosting this event and I know my friends enjoy the time we spend together crafting. My hope is that I can get people sending cards and correspondence to friends and family again. I think with the availability of email this sometimes is becoming a lost art. I know I enjoy receiving this kind of mail and I think most people do. I will do my best to get people excited about reaching out and sending tangible cards and notes again. I will plan to get some of my cards uploaded and begin to post them here on my Blog so you can see what I am making theses days. See you soon

Touring the Midwest

I just returned from a two week tour of the midwest. Went to Indiana for a wedding and that was fun to see everyone. Also toured Ohio with sister-in-law and her husband. Saw some interesting places there (Longaberger Baskets and Malabar Farms. Had lots of good food on our trip. Also toured Michigan. Went to Bronners the World's Largest Christmas Store in Frankenmuth. Had a wonderful chicken dinner at Zendhers in Frankenmuth. It was a whirl wind two weeks and of course it is good to be home.
