In August and October I had cataract surgery, and for the first time in MANY years I am able to wear single lens glasses instead of trifocals. The gal at Nationwide Vision helped me pick out two pair of new glasses and when I put them on, I can see like Superwoman. She was so helpful, so courteous, I wanted to make her a little sampan-sumpin so I came up with a set of cards with a pair of eyeglasses as the feature. She loved 'em.
Happy Thanksgiving. I am enjoying a cherished visit from my son and daughter in law and their sweet dog Daisy. Riley is residing in the front bedroom, all decked out with his Cat quilt, litter box, water and food bowls and many visits from us. He doesn't like dogs so for right now, Daisy is the guest with free roam of the house and yard. Porch cats are on alert, they laze around but when that door opens, he are off to the highest fence.

I have been creating like a mad scientist. So many cards, so many pretty handmade boxes, and while I was on my creative journey, I found a box of the black and white journal notebooks that I love to cover ... here are five. Simple but fun to make, and really pretty to use. I bet some of my friends will love these.
I closed my initial Etsy shop a few years back that featured die cuts, die cuts. When I realized the extend of my creativity wanderings and how quickly "stuff" piled up, I opened a second shop ..and sadly it sat unused from 2012 until now. I have opened the shop up with scads of die cuts and card packs. A great place to shove my stuff that normally would sit around. I had my first sale a week after I opened so I hope this is a sign of sales to come. Wish me well. Should you like to see my "stuff" on Etsy, take a peek here.
