Flowers on Mother’s Day


With Mother’s Day right around the corner we will start to see lots of flower ads. I told my husband that this year I wanted the kind of flowers that would last forever! He looked at me quizzically and responded “you want fake flowers?” Kinda I said. I told him I would send him a link to the flowers I wanted.

Don’t get me wrong, I love real flowers, but I would much rather see my husband or my son spend money on something I can enjoy all year long. Real flowers will be gone after a week, but the flowers I can create with this Sizzix die cut will live on through my crafting.

Of course my family knows I am a crafter, but they have no idea what I have or what I want, so why not give them a little help this year! All Mother’s Day items are 15% off over the next two days so you better drop your hints fast!

Here are some of the items on my list:

Sizzix Sale and Big Shot Giveaway


As a huge Tim Holtz fan, I have been anxiously awaiting the availability of some of the new product releases introduced at Creativation this year.

If you were smart enough to pre order, you probably already have yours.  While some of us stay frustrated (ME) many already have theirs. I have seen so many great creations with these inks, I can’t wait until mine finally arrive! If you have been fortunate enough to get your hands on these oxides, Ranger, Inc has a free Oxide label sheet and Color Chart for your new inks.
