Shiver In My Bones

I've got a shiver in my bones

Good morning!  I'm on the Eyelet Outlet blog this morning, ruminating on current weather patterns, a pocket page and a card. I promise, it will all make sense if you hop over to the blog to see more :).  Have a great weekend!

Eyelet Outlet: It's the Weekend - Hang In There!

Happy Weekend!

This week at our house.....We got a new outdoor security camera system, and we spent the week looking at what happens while we sleep. There's apparently a set of alley cats that use our driveway as a playground!!  We've never seen either one of them in the daylight. Who knew what excitement was happening in the dark shadows?!

Inspired by those mischief makers, I'm on the Eyelet Outlet blog this morning with this card. Head over there for more pictures and the supply list.

Don't forget to follow Eyelet Outlet on Instagram (and bonus, comment for an extra chance to win $50 Eyelet Outlet product!). And show off your projects using #eyeletoutlet, too.

Have a great week!

Eyelet Outlet: Bling Strips 5 Ways

Good morning! 

My first blog post for Eyelet Outlet is up today, and I'm so excited!  I went crazy with one of my favorite embellishments, these bling strips, to highlight the final page of my 2016 albums:

But after making this page, I think I might have a new favorite:  I NEED to go back and buy 100 packs of the mini butterfly brads. I want to mix them with everything!

You can find the full post and the product list on the Eyelet Outlet Blog at:

Please don't mind the dust and the cobwebs. If you've landed here today, you likely got here from the Eyelet Outlet blog and this crazy bit of news.....


What the?!?!.....I can't think of any other word except crazy!  I am so excited and ready to report for duty. I'll primarily post for Eyelet Outlet on Saturday mornings, which leaves a lot of time to do some catching up around here. 

As you can see, I haven't used this blog for anything crafty in years.  I still scrap all the time (and shop and organize and scrap some more), but back when blogger became really difficult to use with my iPad, I moved to more posting on a private message board with friends and a bit on my Instagram.  I think I've found my excuse to get back to using the blog.  And it looks like some of the tech issues have improved with age, so let's give it a shot.

But with this new development, I need to give this place a good 'ol spring cleaning! This weekend will be my first chance to really spend some time doing some updates, but I thought I should at least jump in and say hello in case anyone clicks here now.  

I'll start Eyelet Outlet blog posts later this month. Until then, here's a page I submitted for the Design Team call.  As soon as I spotted the gnome brads, I knew they needed to go on a page in my Iceland books. 

Have a great day!
