Fun Wedding Shopping Today

This afternoon was all about Larry and Krista's upcoming wedding.  For those who don't know Larry is my son and Krista is my daughter-in-law to be.  We went dress shopping with the young woman who is to be maid of honor in the wedding party.  After trying on lots of dresses, in two different shops, dress choices were narrowed down to two.  I really like one of them and have my fingers crossed that it will be the "winner".

Krista's mom and I also chose our dress today, but no way am I going to order until I must.  I want to lose that lousy twenty pounds before I am willing to submit to the measuring tape.

Anyway, it was a nice day and I was unable to make any new cards today.  Hopefully I will get to  photograph and list a couple of new items on Etsy tomorrow.  Have you seen my shop yet? - home of greeting cards, both sweet and sassy.

Looking for bridal tags and cards?  Then you'll want - for all your reception, party and bridal shower tags and paper goods.

The Purpose of a Greeting Card, or Who Needs One?

Maybe not having a reason to send a greeting card is the best reason of all to send one.  Celebrate everyday with friends and family just because you care.

Your mother wants to hear from you, your best friend misses you.  Did you ever think that the best way to "friend" someone may be with a small folded piece of cardstock that will let your friends and family know that you were thinking of them today?

This has nothing at all whatsoever to do with cards, but I'm craving chinese food today and cannot wait to go get some.  Not good for my measurements I know, but sometimes you just have to do it.  I do need to get my not-so-tiny-fanny back to the gym.  Spring clothes waiting for warmer temperatures in my closet will not fit-and yes that does have to do with card making!

Want to see the newest card I listed today at ?  Here it is, perfect to send a get well wish, or for sending a feel better soon message to anyone.

My windows are open

This is one of my favorite days of the year. The temperatures have risen to 50 degrees and the windows are open. I'll admit the air is a little chilly, but it feels so good to have some fresh air circulating through the house.

Sales have been slow at It seems that changes are being made at Etsy and things are very slow. My new shop, which specializes in bridal cards and tags is waiting for sale number two. I really think the tags there are very special and I can hardly wait to sell more. Will you check them out? You can find them at my Artfire shop I love those theme wedding tags.

I hope that springtime brings you happiness and peace. It's time to shut these windows. Our early spring in Buffalo seems to be over, and temperatures are going to fall below freezing again tonight. It was good while it lasted.

Welcome 2011

At our household we brought in the New Year in Style. I wore a beautiful matched set of polka dot pj's, and Larry was sporting an old t-shirt and pajama pants.

We played Wii games, ate cheese and crackers, drank some lovely wine and were asleep by 11:00! That's how we celebrate : )

I opened a new Artfire shop yesterday, conveniently called Sweet and Sassy Cards. This division of my shop will feature bridal and wedding tags, placecards, table numbers and more.

Here's the link, if you care to have a gander

Today's holiday festivites include taking down the Christmas tree, the outside decorations, going to the gym, learning about tagging items and then dinner at our son (Larry too) and Krista's (his fiance) house for dinner and an announcement. They tell me it's something good.

Would you like to see where the Sweet and Sassy Cards magic happens? Check out this picture of part of my studio - it's a bit messy, but hey there's always a work in progress
