I have always enjoyed being crafty. I remember getting really excited about stickers and fun stationary when I was little. Well its good to know that some things in life never change!

I was introduced to scrapbooking in 2005 and have been hooked ever since. My love of crafting has branched out to include DIY, projects, gardening, baking, and canning. I hope to share my projects here.

My Mom Rocks!

Hi Everyone. I hope you all are having a good week. I just wanted to pop in and share some goodies my Mom gave me. My parents used to have a crafting business and my Mom brought me some of her leftover supplies for my dd, Alex and I to use in our crafting.

Here is a pic of the some of the goodies she brought: On the right is a bag of lace scraps she brought. OOH I can't wait to play with these! The bin in the back is full of ribbon scraps. The two drawers in front are full of buttons. The front button bin is especially important as these were buttons from my Grandma's stash.

Look at these GREAT vintage buttons! I am so excited about these!

She also brought me this parts sorter full of all sorts of doo-dads. Jewelery making parts, Charms, beads, googily eyes, and jewels!

Here is the bin full of little charms in all sorts of shapes and themes.

My mom also brought me a bin with sequins, confetti shapes, and beads in it, as well as some other little seasonal charms and items and some cake decorating items.

A GREAT BIG Thank You to MOM for giving me all these new goodies to play with!

Have a Great and Crafty Day!



  1. I have a canning jar with buttons from my grandmother. I have been keeping them for sentimental reasons, but they would be put to better use if I would use them on my scrapbook pages. Your mom is the best!
