Papertrey September Blog Hop Challenge


It’s been quite a while since I last participated in a PTI Blog Hop, but this month’s challenge made it the perfect time to start up again.  The theme this month is “Wreaths”, so I chose a fall look for my card.  I used the “Wreath for All Seasons” stamp set, and the Mat Stack 3 and Layerz Mat Stack 3 dies.  I stamped the berries on the twig wreath in orange and red for more depth to the image, and added a button for dimension.  Thanks for stopping by!

Getting Ready for Fall

I’ve been busy filling up the shop and creating items for upcoming craft shows.  One of the new items I’ve been working on is bracelets…charm bracelets in 5 themes- Halloween, Fall, Football, Hunting, and Teaching.  Here’s a peek…


Charm Bracelet - Halloween Themed Charms   Charm Bracelet - Hunting Themed Charms  Charm Bracelet - Teaching Themed Charms

There are a few new necklaces too:

Witch's Hat Charm Necklace with Crystal Accents   Christian Fish Charm Necklace with Crystal Accent

And always lots of cards:

Happy Birthday Card with balloon   Teacher Card with Apple

I have even more new merchandise planned for the upcoming local craft shows, including several new styles of Post-It Pads, Owl Hershey Bars, Halloween Poppers, Bat Treat Boxes and more!

Here’s my show schedule for next month:

  • October 12th at Fall Fest in the Grove City Memorial Park
  • October 19th at the Scott Township Volunteer Fire Department in Harlansburg

I have a few plans in the works for November, and I’ll let you in on the details soon!

A New Item in the Shop

I just added some new Treat Bag Kits to the shop last night.  There are four styles available, and each kit contains 6 stamped mini bags (big enough for a snack size candy bar), 6 stamped sticker seals, and 6 feet of bakers twine.  I have four of each style available.

 Halloween Treat Bag Kit - 4 Styles Available

I have a lot more Halloween and Fall items planned for the shop (and local shows)…I just have to find time to work on everything!  I’ll post updates as I finish items and add them to the shop.

A Feature!

I just noticed there was some increased interest this weekend in two of the cards in my Etsy shop, and tracked those views back to a blog post from Fire Blossom Candle.  You can read the article here.  Thanks for the feature Fire Blossom Candle!

The mission trip to New Mexico was AMAZING!  It is taking a little while to catch up, but I have some new projects in the works for my shop and craft shows this fall.  There is always an abundance of inspiration on these trips- in the scenery, the people, and the experiences.  Watch for new stuff coming soon!




An Adventure

I’ve been terrible about posting to this blog lately!  My crafting time has been at a stand-still the past month…I’ve been preparing to go on a mission trip to Roswell, New Mexico with a group from my church.  This will be my fourth trip to Roswell, and it is always an amazing experience.  If you would like to follow along on our journey, we are blogging at: NLPC Roswell Mission Experience 2013.

The first half of the group (including me) pulls out in the church bus tomorrow morning at 6 AM.  The rest of the group will fly in on Saturday.  We will be holding a Vacation Bible School, doing some repairs on the church building where we live for the week, and holding an adult Bible study.  It will be an exhausting week, but filled with beautiful people, amazing food, and more blessings than we can count.

Gotta go…I still have packing to do!


The newest treasuries…

I have two treasuries to share this week.  I can’t believe how long it has been since I posted on the blog!  I’ll try to be better about remembering to share.  The first treasury is bright and sunny, the second brings one of the first tastes of summer…Enjoy!
