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!

Christmas In July!


I love this Christmas Angel Luminary from Dreaming Tree!  I don't believe I have posted a picture of this project that I made on my Cricut.  I love how you can decorate the angel anyway you want.  I used a lot of glitter paper on her.  You can find this svg here-

The picture above is what the Angel looks like with the lights I put inside.  She is really fabulous!  My sisters and I will love making these Angels.  

I have been a reseller on Ebay now for a couple of years.  I started out selling some things that I have had in our home that I never used or don't use anymore and discovered I loved doing that!  But now, I really enjoy hunting for things that I love at Thrift Stores and Yard Sales and hope that others might love too!  You can find my store on Ebay here-

I am planning on having a Christmas In July sale soon.  My intention is to sell some of my stamp sets and dies that I no longer use.  If you have any interest you can visit my store on Ebay!  I should have those items added in about a week!  I will also be adding some Christmas mugs and dishes that you can use at Christmas!  

We have had alot of rain here lately.... I mean alot!  I read where in June we had 23 days of rain!  Our plants and our lawn look fabulous but I think it is getting old.  We need some more sunshine!!  Hope it is shining where you are!!

Back in Maine May 2023

 Where has the time gone?  We arrived back in Maine the end of April.  Now, it's almost Memorial Day.  Wow- It's hard to believe how fast time does fly!!  My niece has had a baby girl!! I had to make her a Congratulations card.  So I haven't been making many cards since I got home - This was a good excuse to get back to making some cards!

I made this from an SVG file from The Dreaming Tree!  There cards are really fun to make!  

You even get the envelope to mail it in!  Fabulous!  They were having a sale so I bought a few files-When I make them I will be sure to post pictures!

This is all for now!  I am off to play some golf this afternoon- even though it is a little chilly.  I do

miss Florida weather for sure!   I will try and post a little more often since I am now home and caught

up to date.  Take care all!
