Here is another project we made at my last workshop. Rather simple really- looks harder than it is. It is 1/2 sheet of 12x12 paper cut on the bias and then rolled (similar to a party hat I made for new years). Once rolled and glued I attached a butterfly punchie and ribbon to hang it. You could always add longer ribbon so it could be hung on a door knob or hook. It can be filled with candies and other goodies. I glued 2 cherry candy canes togeher to form a heart and placed it inside.



I'm back. Just returned from a fabulous relaxing scrapbooking weekend retreat. I have not scrapbooked since last February. It was nice to switch gears for a while and get some things accomplished. I don't know why I have not done scrapbooking is such a while. I got near 40 pages done- got very little sleep but still enjoyed every minute.

I have made a goal for myself to try to get a few pages (at least) done per month. I hope that I can stick to it.

My husband made it home while I was gone. I'm glad to have him home. He had the house cleaned, laundry (1/2 ) done, kids tended to (sports and food), and my dog back at home by the time I got home. It was a good weekend.


Here are samples of cards made with SU! sweet treat cups (heart and circle). I used SWEET CENTERS #116521 from the Holiday Mini along with the SCALLOP SQUARE PUNCH #112081, 3/4 POLKA DOT REAL RED RIBBON #115608, Misc. DS PAPERS, SCALLOP TRIM CORNER PUNCH #118870, and filled the cup with heart shaped chocolates.

Used SWEETHEART #120780 (clear mount) from the Valentine Promotion flyer, Misc. DS PAPERS, HEART SHAPED CUPS #120435, 3/4 REAL RED POLKA DOT RIBBON #115608, PINK PASSION and REAL RED cs, and filled with cinnamon hearts.



Hello bloggers, I'm still here... just not been stamping/ crafting lately. We've had some very unfortunate events happen this week and I have not had time, energy, nor a desire to craft. I know the MOJO will return sometime.
My aunt (mother's sister) passed away on Monday after a illness caused by a bacteria (difficult to treat) passed to her while in a hospital. I've heard about these type of cases/ situations on TV or through community events but never thought this type thing would happen to smoeone in my family. She was a very kind, loving, adventurous woman whose life was cut short and it is true when they say "only the good die young". I will truly miss her. The whole family will miss her.

We have received our 2nd "bizzard-like" storm of the winter season last night after the funeral. I would guess that we have more than 12 inches and they are expecting more storms on Monday and Tuesday. I am truly thankful that my neighbor was able to help "dig us out" today. My poor 14 year old lab, the snow is up to her nose, and she is having a hard time walking in it. Thank goodness I have a JEEP and I was able to get to the store for milk, bread, soda, eggs, etc before the next batch comes in. We may be snowed in for a couple days.

My husband (electrician) was called out to Virginia to assist the people with power line difficulties. He was stranded by himself on I76 for 8+ hours last night. There were accidents and the highway was closed for many hours. They refused to let people continue to drive until late this morning. He finally was allowed to move around 11:00am. I hope and pray he gets to his destination in one piece and gets some desperately needed sleep before going on to his final destination (somewhere near Baltimore). Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.

Ok, Im off to check on my girls and see if the laundry is ready to switch. Have a great weekend and try to stay warm.


I made an adorable Vintage "shabby" banner using the Pennant Die from SU! and some vintage (free) images from the internet. LOVE IT! Distressed with cocoa and choc. chip inks. Added glittered letters from a banner I've had for years, the rest of the old banner was trashed. I recycled, didn't I? Although the font does not match up perfectly with the style and look I'm pleased with how it turned out. Great way to go "green". Thanks for stopping by.
