Happy Thanksgiving

This year for Thanksgiving #2 we are doing buffet style.

I was excited to add my own touch with these silverware packets which were inspired by a project introduced to me by My friend Alison.

Watch this quick video to learn how I made mine.



Mother’s Day Gift

This year Our family is coordinating a special gift for my Mother-in-Law and April’s My Paper Pumpkin was a perfect gift. I love Stampin’ Up!’s My Paper Pumpkin kits and the fact that they are a quick project to be completed in 30 min or less!

Here is my Mother’s Day Gift, notice the packaging was included too?

I used the Mother’s Day stamp inside the card you will see tomorrow.



Here is the Stampin’ Up! Video of the the project.

Tile Coasters


I love these coasters!

  • Tumble Marble Tiles
  • Rubber Stamps
  • StazOn Ink
  • Spray Acrylic to seal the tiles
  • Coaster Board Sheets

Directions using StazOn Ink Pads:

  1. Wipe off the surface of your tiles clean and dry.
  2. Stamp images onto the tile using any StazOn ink pad.
  3. After the image dries,  spray a light coat of an acrylic sealer over the face of the tile. (Don’t saturate or spray too close to ensure that the ink does not bleed.) Wait at least 30 minutes and then spray the surface of the tile again. Let that second coat sit for at least an hour. Continue to repeat this step until you are satisfied with coverage. Let tiles sit overnight outside or in a garage to “dry” and lose their odor.
  4. After the tiles have dried, turn the tiles over and attach the coaster board to protect your table surface from the tile.
