I've been enjoying meeting the people in my neighborhood and have had lots of fun leaving treats in their paper boxes. This morning, these haunting post it notes will be waiting for pick up!

I found the Halloween mini pens and post it notes at Dollar Tree. Treats like this are a great way for me to use my retired products. I've not totally lost track of time in my craft room in quite a while. As I was working on these - on a week night and I do work a full time job - I looked at the clock and it was 1:30 AM!! All I needed was a third cup of coffee the next day. I have more treats than neighbors, so will have fun handing them out when I'm out and about.  

Need supplies for your own treats? I'd love to be your SU! contact. Shop here.

Hope your day is filled with many treats!

After a long hiatus, I am back.

Where have I been? Well, let's see. My mom died and I've been working on my parent's estate for over a year; I sold my home and downsized to a condo; finished the lower level for a man cave for my son and created a 'she cave' for me; I had two hips replaced; travelled to Europe to see my son who was studying abroad and this fall got him settled into his first college apartment in Madison; spent many weekends with my 'littles' - my great niece and nephews; have been creating a crafting space in my new home and started holding classes again. I feel like life is getting back to normal.

I've been stamping and crafting and am looking forward to sharing again.

This fall, I decided I wanted to learn to arrange flowers, looked for local classes and reverted to my good 'ole standby - YouTube. Did you know you can search Dollar Tree DIY and find great tutorials that include a shopping list? I had fun making this fall wreath for my front door and impressed myself with the way it turned out! I have to admit, I'm easily impressed:)

There's still time to order Stampin' Up! products to create your holiday cards. I'd love for you to shop with me. Click here to go to my online store.
