I was so happy to hear that Renée Zellweger won the Best Actress honors at the Oscars this year; she is such an amazing actor! I would love to send her this card to honor her, but I have to share it virtually here. I used this past sketch as the layout inspiration for...

This was the quick card that the Essex stamp club created in January. I really wanted to brighten a dark January day with some prettiness from the Peaceful Poppies Suite. I think that the patterned paper is just da-bomb featuring some gorgeous colors and patterns....

Tim the Tusker

Tim the Tusker

Last week I heard a news story about "Tim", a notorious elephant in Kenya who died of natural causes at 50 years old. It was a real testament to the efforts of the Kenya Wildlife Service that Tim lived as long as he did, especially because he was a "tusker" - an...

Ellen is so inspiring and fun, and I really do think that we need more people like her! I would love to send her this card to tell her so. But I will have to settle for sharing it here virtually. This card was one of the make-n-take projects at the OnStage event I...

Stay Well Julia Louis-Dreyfus

I just learned that Julia Louis-Dreyfus is a breast cancer survivor. In 2017 she received her diagnosis, and she successfully completed her treatment. Since I just had a screening mammogram, this is in the forefront of my brain. I hope that Julia stays cancer-free for...
