Here Comes Peter Cottontail

In addition to the celebrating the spiritual side of Easter Sunday, our family always has so much fun celebrating the joy of Easter with beloved traditions. Even though our girls are grown, they still love getting Easter baskets filled with dyed eggs, candy, chocolate Easter bunnies (with the ears bitten off of course! Haha!) and little gifts. We leave a plate of carrots out for the Easter Bunny and he always leaves the girls a note for them to read the next morning. I found this darling Bunny Box (Design #57771) from Snapdragon Snippets in the Silhouette Online Store and thought it Continue Reading →

Here’s to the Good Life! Wine bottle tag.

I’ve been busy, busy, busy using my Silhouette Cameo and Stampin’ Up! supplies to make  things for my little sister’s 50th birthday party!!! ( I don’t know how I’m old enough to have a little sister that is 50!!! Haha!) My sister Barb is always positive and upbeat, so I chose “Life is Good” for the theme. I made wine bottle tags for the tables. (Supply list and directions at end of post.)   Life is good when enjoying a nice bottle of wine with friends and family!  And just like a fine bottle of wine, Barb’s not getting older, Continue Reading →

Silhouette Cameo Project #9 – Carousel Horses & Memories of the Highlands

Silhouette Project #9, Carousel, Peace Love and Joyce

My sister asked me to come up with a table top decoration for a party she is in charge of at her daughter’s school. Their theme is a turn-of-the-century fair. My first thought was that I wanted to make a carousel. When you went to the county fair as a child, didn’t the carousel seem magical? Even as an adult, I still love carousels! Last year my parents and I met up with my sister to spend the day in St. Louis. We were celebrating Mom’s birthday. We headed to the Sophia M. Sachs Butterfly House at Faust Park, a truly Continue Reading →

Happy 40th Birthday Little Sister!!!

Today is my little sister Melba’s 40th birthday!!!  (I’m not quite sure how that is possible.  I was almost 14 when she was born and I’m sure that I’m not near old enough for my little sister to be 40 years old!!!) Last night my brother-in-law Jay had a surprise party for Melba.  He asked all of us to wear black, now I don’t think 40 is quite old enough to warrant a black theme, but it was his party, so I went along with the theme when I made Melba’s card. And just like the party, the card is Continue Reading →
