A great idea for your Grab n Go Craft projects:

It's a Magical Paper Escape Every Month!

Sweep away the mundane-your creativity carriage awaits!
I'm Paper Pumpkin . . .
I come to your door each month (a fully decked-out creativity carriage). I'll help you to escape your life with some paper fun.
I come in a sweet box, but you'll really love what you find on the inside:
All the stamps, ink, paper, and accessories to create pinable projects. Create stuff like cards, journals, décor, and more!
Paper Pumpkin by Stampin' Up! is a new monthly kit program that anyone  can enjoy!
Get Started
It's so easy to get started. Simply sign up for the program  by visiting and click Get it. Every month a new, surprise project kit arrives at your doorstep. Just think of the anticipation of creating a fun project to pin, showoff, and share with your friends and family-every month!
The very first Paper Pumpkin will arrive on your doorstep starting in March-if you sign up before March 10.
Of course, you'll want to know more. So here's the nitty gritty:
  • Each month we send you a unique, surprise kit with a project-cards, journals, décor, and more! (We've even color-coordinated, measured, and cut everything for you!)
  • Each kit includes stamps, ink, paper, and accessories-everything but adhesive.
  • We will ship your Paper Pumpkin on or around the 15th of the month.  
  • You need to sign up for a kit by the 10th of the month to get that month's kit. If you sign up on the 11th of the month, your first kit will come the next month. (Let's say you sign up on May 10th, we'll send your kit around May 15th. If you sign up on May 11th, we'll send your first kit around June 15th.)
  • There's no commitment, you can cancel your monthly Paper Pumpkin at anytime. You can also skip a month if you want.
  • Starting in early March, we'll offer a Try-It kit if you'd like to try Paper Pumpkin for one month.
Here's How You Order
Sign up for your monthly Paper Pumpkin starting Monday,  by visiting and click Get it.

A Free Gift in Your Very First Kit
The Welcome Kit is the very first Paper Pumpkin you will receive in your first month of membership. The Welcome Kit includes a free gift-a clear acrylic block--an $8.50 value! The Try-It Kit also includes a
free clear acrylic block--an $8.50 value!

The Welcome and Try-It Kits are the same no matter when you order. If you cancel and rejoin, you will receive the same Welcome kit.  Try-It Kits can be placed on any order.
Please contact for more details on how to order! You will need to find my name as a demonstrator in the order form.

Craftin' on the Go

Just like having  a grab and go tote of travel essentials,
make a few grab and go totes of craft projects.
Keep the projects simple with few supplies
in case there isn't much room to work, such as in a
waiting room.

One option is to subscribe to a new kit
program through Stampin'UP! (
A simple fun kit comes each month with everything
needed except the adhesive.
The kit comes in a fun red box that is easy
to Grab and Go!

Photo Thank You Cards

We received many lovely remembrances for dad's services.
Since many of the plants or flower arrangements were ordered from out of town,
the person ordering did not know what the end product would look like.
I took pictures of these to add to their thank you note,
so they could see what was ordered and sent.

This is very easy to do.
1. Take simple pictures of the flowers/plant.
2. Print out 4x6 copies.
3. Make or purchase simple blank cards.
4. Trim picture to fit front of card, adhere to card.
5. Stamp or write Thank You on inside of card.
 (Many told me how much they appreciated knowing what their gift looked like!)

                        Above are samples of pictures I used on Photo Thank You cards.
                        Photo thank yous can be made for any gift occasion.

Monday Make-Itz

Let's make a memory.

Soon after we moved to Tennessee, my father's health began to decline.
August 14, 2012, he began his journey to regain some of his health and well being.
From August 14  he had three major surgeries and
was in some sort of medical facility until we brought him home January 14, 2013.
He knew he was home.
It brought great joy and comfort for my sister and I to make it like
Christmas for him. We were rewarded with many smiles.

We have had some warm days this January, and the day I knew dad
was ready to return to his Heavenly Home, I walked around his yard and
found a handful of daffodils almost in bloom in one of his gardens.
I picked and placed the flowers close to his bed.
When I received the call to return to say my goodbyes, I looked at the
vase and the daffodils were in  full bloom!
The flowers lasted through the services, which is incredible for daffodils.
My sister is now drying them for me to save with other memories of our dad.
Now, whenever I see a daffodil, I will smile and know that dad is near.
