So much to be thankful for…

On November 1st my daughter was sent to the Emergency Room and we spent a a full week at the hospital, including CVICU, hoping for answers-it’s been a long 14 months for her. After her autoimmune diagnosis, there are so many follow up appointments in her future. Please send prayers her way! I created these cute gift boxes for my coworkers who carried my load while I was out-this was her 4th stay in 14 months with very scary situations-my coworkers have offered prayers and encouragement for us throughout these situations.

I truly am grateful and blessed to have a caring work family at my school. 💗💗💗

Stamps of Life products used: gift box foldit, card kit stamp set, tag die, Happy Thanksgiving die, paper and twine.

There’s no place like home! 👠

Loved my getaway weekend with my daughter. We both basked in the love of family for four days. It was Alanna’s Fall break of her final semester of college! After the long travels it was nice to be home and get back to my ‘Camelot’ (my craft room).


A place or time of idealized beauty, peacefulness, and enlightenment.

Who doesn’t love birthdays?!

Another fun birthday card for Alanna’s boyfriend, Will! He has the cutest goldendoodle so I wanted a dog in his card. He is so sweet to like my cards too! 💗

    We were blessed to enjoy two beautiful people tie the knot on 9-1-19! With the sunflower theme it seemed fitting to use this Simply Defined Harvest Your Blessings die to go with the theme and colors of blue and yellow.

    Stamps of Life gatefold card base, wedding sentiment stamp (inside), banana and licorice cardstock, & ribbon.
