Fluttering Leaves

Autumn's Calling set from The Project Bin is a great fall set!
Love the sold leaf stamps, don't you?

Fall is winding down...
which means it's time to start bringing out christmas and winter sets
from The Project Bin!


It's Snow Time!!

It's the first snow real snow fall in MI today...a bit too early for me!
BUT...it's never too early to pull out new products from Eyelet Outlet!
Our new Mr. & Mrs. Snowman Brads will keep you crafting through the colder months.
Our new large snowflakes, that come in two styles, are a favorite.
Plus, we have a new winter washi tape, Glitter Tall Tree,  that will add sparkle and glitz to your paper crafting projects. Who needs more of the small snow flake bling??

Thanks for sledding by today!

(I'm going to have to dig out some hats and boots now.)



Don't you just love the color of the world in the fall months?
It's all about Color.  The Project Bin's Autumn's Calling set has great sentiments...
and leaves! I also used the pumpkin stamp from Pumpkin Spice set add a visual element to this card.


The other day

The other day, my mom reposted a rough pix of this photo of her father,
Henry Czekala, who passed when she was just a couple of months old.
She has only stories...and we all have searched for links back to an extended family.
When she reposted this photo,
I realized how my own Evan looks very much like my grand father...
his Great Grand Father.
Then my mom reposted Evan's first day of school photo.
Some quickie shot after school..b/c I failed to remember to get one before he left the house that morning.

And there it was...
the same hair style, same wavy hair...
same eyebrows and casual look/demeanor...
same ears, similar nose...see the chin? matchy match.

So...with the help of Photoshop,
I scaled them to match...First in B&W,
then back to color...

Evan prefers the color...I think maybe I do too.
Although, I am rather fond of seeing the contrast in B&W...
with the clothing that says 1940s...and 2019.

I'm so grateful for these pix...and technology..and a few skills to make them match and fix spotted old photographs...
and even more grateful for the knowledge that one day, my mother will be able to really meet her father...
I will be in line to meet him...and so will Evan.
And, we remember him...always.

Naughty or Nice??

What sort of crafter were you this year?


or Nice?

Either way, Eyelet Outlet has some great new washi tape and plenty of sweet decorative brads

to help you create a big of Christmas Magic this season.

Our bling is the bling-iest!!


Hey..and one more show is coming to Birch Run, MI

this weekend...

Swing by and say hello to me and pick up your favorite holiday embellies!!




Beauty is all around us.
The Autumn's Calling set from The Project Bin 
will help you celebrate that!

Here I used self adhesive die cuts from Echo Park to add interest to the branch  from New Leaf set.
