Scrap Party

My mom-in-law, Penny Warner (, threw a scrap party. I taught everyone how to make a paperbag scrapbook mini-album. Penny opened up her home, fed us tons of yummy treats, and wrote a column about our day for the local paper. Here are some pictures of the Christmas-themed paperbag album and the women who made them that day. I'm so lucky to have a mom-in-law who does kind things like that for me!!! She's an awesome person. (And the paperbag albums were pretty cute, too.)

Wine Charms

I love making wine charms. My friend, Rocio, suggested I make them for her event for the Danville Children's Guild. They sold really well! Now I make a variety of themes and styles. Here are a few.

First, here's a picture of the original set I made with a "wine" theme.

Next, here is a picture of the Christmas wine charms.

Finally, here is a promotional wine charm I used as a free sample for an event at Ruby Hill Winery. Now they're selling my charms at Ruby Hill!

Kids' Room Signs

This is a picture of the room sign I made for my nephew Luke. The first room sign I ever made was for my friend Julie. It was her idea to have a sign to hang on the door to her daughter Charlotte's nursery. I added some dragonflies to Charlotte's sign because she had some cute dragonflies hanging in her room. I haven't stopped making them since. They are so fun and they turn out so cute! I can also pretty much make them in any color scheme and any theme to match the child's room or interests.

My new blog!

This is my first attempt at writing a blog and adding a picture!

Here is a picture of my Conversation Cards (I used to call them Table Topics). It's a game you can play with your family at the dinner table or at a dinner party. Each card in the deck has a question such as, "What is your dream vacation?" You can use the questions to generate other questions or try to guess what other people will answer to see how well you know them.
