Summer is coming!

 Well, we have been back in Maine for about a month! It has finally warming up!! I have been busy making cards and gardening and playing golf!

The cards above were made from the SVG file from my Scrap Chick.  It is her freebie for the month! I love it! Easy to make too!!  It is such a cheery card- Don't you think!

I also purchased this SVG from My Scrap Chick because I love how the stars explode from the card. 
It is called a Tuxedo Card and Scrap Chick has a bunch of different designs. 


Just to show you I haven't been too lazy since I got home- I have been working on adding some rustic looks to my backyard.  I planted succulents in the teacups I got from the thrift store.  

I did paint this bike but I love all the rust that is on it and hope to add some more this season.  I also think I will add another basket of flowers to the rear of the bike. 

This birdcage was fun to do!  I love the purple color against the black.  It was a challenge since 
the opening is very small to put the flowers in.  But I can't wait to see how it does.   That is my update since we got home.  I will try and do better in posting items this summer.  I think it is going to be a fun one!  Take care!

Happy St. Patrick's Day (past) & Happy Easter!

 Happy St. Patrick's Day!  Ok, it did get away from me! The time is just flying by here in Florida!  

There is so much to do here!  We did go to an Irish restaurant just before St. Patrick's Day!  We would never go on the actual holiday!  It was busy enough before the holiday- can't imagine what it would be like on the holiday!  Anyway, I made some St Patrick Day goodies for our golf league this year.  I got the SVG file from My Scrap Chick.  I just love their designs!

This Monday I will be bringing some Easter treats!  This SVG file was free from My Scrap Chick too!
I love the fact that they do provide a video that shows you how to put together the project!  I did add
some stuff to the back of the box- I love the cute bunny tail!  I also didn't use the dispenser since I added some wrapped candies to the box.  But the dispenser is a really cute idea!

Diamonds in the Ruff is the name of our golf league.  It is a fun bunch of women who love to have
a good time!  We might not be the best golfers but we do know how to have fun!

Our time here is very quickly coming to an end  I say that but I know that back home (Maine) just had
a big Snow and Ice storm!  We won't be heading back until that is all gone!  I hope!

Ask me how hard it will be to leave this beautiful place!  But I do feel the pull of home.  Our families are there and it is nice to be able to spend some time with them!  Hope everyone is well and having a fun time crafting!

Happy Valentine's Day 2024

I had such fun making these LOVE BUG lollipop holders!  I purchased the SVG file from Spot of Tea Designs over on Etsy.  You can find them here-

They are really easy to make and such fun!

I made them for our Women's Golf League called Diamonds in the Ruff.  This group of women are so much fun!  I am not the greatest golfer in the world but it doesn't matter when you play with good company.  I love them all!!  I think I made about 25 of them. 

I did add the wording and embellishments myself.  We were all bitten by the LOVE BUG!


Just to share a couple of pictures with you- the above picture is a puzzle I did 
recently.  Isn't it beautiful!!  I think puzzles have come a long way.  This was a
little more difficult since it does not have a square border.  I loved it!!  

This picture was taken by a friend.  She takes the best pictures!  I am so grateful that
she shared this with me!  It gives me a sense of peace and calm.  I thought I would end my
post with it to pass that feeling of serenity on to you!  Hope you have a fabulous day!!

Merry Christmas

It is hard to believe that Christmas is here! My hubby and I have been cooking today for tomorrow's Christmas meal.  My BIL and SIL are coming over to celebrate.  It should be fun.

The stars above are an SVG that I purchase on Etsy.  They are only about 6 inche tall and easy to make.

These lighted stars and round ornaments are all over Etsy.  I love making them!

The Gnome Santas are from another SVG that I purchased on Etsy.  I made these for my Women's Golf League.  The Gnome sits on a plastic dome that holds candy.  I made two sizes to see which one I liked best.  They are adorable!

This is going to be a short post because I need to do a little more cooking.  My hubby wants to make Porcupine Ball - which are a dessert with dates and pecans.  I did want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and  a very Happy New Year!  God Bless you all!!

Halloween is over!

 Hard to believe how fast the time has gone.  I haven't posted since before Halloween!  We are already in Florida enjoying some pretty warm weather- in the high 80's.  I know it is cold in Maine right now.!!  I thought I would show some pictures of the items I made for Halloween.

I went crazy with some of the svg's that Loris Whitlock offers at

She has some fabulous designs for Halloween and for fall. The pumpkins are my favorite!

I also purchase some of her Christmas ornaments.  They are really easy to make!  The one below has a tealight in it. 

I tried using different colored card stock too!

I also tried enlarging the file to make a slightly bigger pumpkin. I really like both sizes. 

I put a tea light in this one too!

This lovely shadow box is from Xuyen craft store on Esty.  I purchased this file because I love how beautiful it looks with fairy lights in it.  It isn't too had to make either.  This seller has more files that I 
may be tempted to purchase for Christmas decorations.  

My sisters and I did a Christmas craft show just before we headed south.  We had a great turnout and did very well. But the most fun at these events are the people that you meet.  It was fun!  Can you believe Christmas is just around the corner?  I am thinking my next post will be centered around some Christmas projects!  Talk soon!

Getting excited for Halloween!


I can't help it!  I love this time of year!  Now that the threat of a hurricane has passed- (it took the humidity with it )- it is time to put out the pumpkins!! It is sad to say
goodbye to summer but I do love the cooler weather!
My sisters and I have been busy making Halloween goodies.  I have used mostly the SVG
files from My Scrap Chick.  I just love the stuff they have over there!  The Frankenstein and Dracula
Popcorn Wraps are new!  I love those guys!

I have made so many of them- I find them easy to put together.  I use Popcorn Secret from the Dollar Store.  They are just a little smaller than the grocery store version. 

I believe these Bats are from Dreaming Tree. I made the stand for them so they could stand up. I also
brushed the creases with a little silver ink.

The Dracula candy bar wraps are from My Scrap Chick too!

I am in love with making these Dome Candy bar holders.  My Scrap Chick has an assortment of
SVGs for that too!  I added googly eyes to this skeleton.  The eyeballs in the cups are added fun!

Lastly, I used My Scrap Chick for the Spiders!  I did add a mouth and some googly eyes to the
spiders as well.  Usually, we have a bunch of kids come for Halloween!  It should be a fun night!
Hope your Halloween in spooky and fun too!
