A Home Alone Christmas

Sweet December
A virus has stolen some of your JOY
but not all of it

As we head into this Christmas holiday

I hope everyone is keeping safe & positive

I'm sure we will all remember this year

but for those of us who have jumped big hurdles in life,

this year was another hurdle to get through as best as we can

Surround yourself with love, light & what makes you happy

My shop is open if you need a digital download

Physical treasures are on hold until January

As we decorate our HOME ALONE Christmas

we feel fortunate to be warm and cozy


Home cooked meals taste better & phone calls are frequent

Please remember, the little things really do matter

It's Always About the Bundles


Linen paper bundles
(sold out quickly)

Since I am a one woman show,
I am limited to how many items
I have time to create for my shop

Most items are one of a kind
especially the vintage pieces
I get a lot of requests for remakes...
sometimes it works out
that makes me happy!
Oh, it's Christmas in the shop
because I don't sell in December.
It's my regroup, organize & celebrate the holiday time.
But come January, it's on!!
I hope to keep creating during this time.
It's been a very strange and unsettling year.


I have to say, you ladies have kept me going.
Thank you for all of your support.

Shop's last sale dates are November 19-20!

Let's See How This Shakes Out

I was fortunate and grateful
to be able to list items in my shop this week.
Scroll through the pictures and I will explain at the end.

A Windows 10 update deleted my ability to print months ago.
I was able to work around that huge issue with my laptop.

A Windows 10 update deleted my photo viewer this week.
I could not view, edit or upload photos from my camera.

Working online can be very frustrating but with determination
you may be able to find a solution to the issue.

Is it fair that Windows 10 highjacks my computer?

I'm sorry to say if this continues, I may not continue selling online.
Typically, it's a lot of work when everything flows as it should.
I have enjoyed the process.
We all have our limits, though.
I sure hope my IT guy can fix these issues
I can get on with my life in the studio!

Whispers of Fall


It's Fall
It has arrived!
In the west, it doesn't feel like Fall yet
But it's around the corner
that makes me happy

I create year round,
it doesn't matter to me what season it is!
But cooler weather means
windows open, breezy days, birds singing

I've been working on different Shop cards
website headers

Staying cooped up
has it's benefits - let me tell you!
I've never been so organized in the studio.

Be well everyone!

Le Studio


Come on in.....

This is where I create
this is where I collect treasures
but mostly, 
this is where I dream

It has taken years and years
to get this studio how I need it.
A lot of moving furniture around
a lot of purging of what was not useful.

This photo is from
a week when the etagere was organized

a lot of creating goes on
in this room

I pull out the fabric, French papers
collected treasures
hopefully inspire others

Lot's of possibilities and inspiration

I turned off my comments

No one has time for that.
