Remembering 2013

The Catered Crop recipe swap for the entire month of January is “Remembering 2013”.  We’ll eventually get back to our regularly scheduled program . . . but for the month of January, here’s our how Catered Crop Recipe Swap will roll.

  • Create a blog post, online gallery (Pinterest,,, etc), or online album (Facebook, etc) with your favorite projects from 2013. Just use the Inlinz button on the Catered Crop blog  to link  to that blog post or gallery.
  • If you’re not a blogger, just got started and don’t have a full year of projects yet, or just don’t have the time to review, select and write about your favorite projects, that’s okay. We don’t want to leave you out. Just give us a link to your one favorite project of the year. But, please, for this challenge only, give us only one link. (We don’t want 12 links by everyone who participates.) For this challenge it’s absolutely okay to back link to an older post.
  • Include a link to us at Catered Crop or add our button, which you can grab on our sidebar or at our {button gallery}.
  • Be sure you link up by 8:00 PM EST on Saturday, February 1.
  • Keep the party hopping by visiting the other players and leaving comments.
  • Check back on the Catered Crop blog on February 2 to see if you’ve won an opportunity to be a guest designer for our next challenge as the best of the best.



I created this scrapbook page documenting the tea time my daughter and I enjoyed at Disney World.   I just love looking at this photo and remembering the fun we had.

I love both of these cards because I stepped outside my usual comfort zone of using a colored image as a focal point.  I love how both of them turned out.

Once again, some of my favorites are projects where I stepped outside my comfort zone.  This  first card uses one of my favorite stamps from Great Impressions Stamps.      The second card was for the Twine Love recipe challenge at the Catered Crop.

Thank you for taking the time to review 2013 with me.  It was fun putting together this post and looking at my projects for the year.   I hope you will take a moment to join the Catered Crop “Remembering 2013” recipe swap.


I hope that I will be able to craft more often starting in February.   The last few months have been especially hectic and I have not been able to spend any time in my craft room for weeks.   Hmmmm….  I think I might kick off the month with some blog candy.  I’ll have to see what I can put together.


Have a great week! Thank you for stopping by!

Pumpkin Spice - Birthday Wishes

While scrolling through the Pumpkin Spice shop, I noticed the great prices on the Christmas/Winter themed paper pads.    The fun colors and patterns on so many of the pages could be used for just about anything.   So I pulled out the “12 Days of Christmas” paper pad from My Mind’s Eye and set to work trying to make some cards.Since I never have enough birthday cards on hand, I thought that was what I would try first.  I started by punching out butterflies from several of the many patterns in the pad.    From there, I moved them around my card until I had an arrangement that I liked, added some stitching and stickers, and, “Ta Da!”, a birthday card! Since I also need a congratulations card for a friend , I thought I would see what I could make with the same paper pad.   I really love how this card turned out.(In real life, the glitter on the “U” is more similar to the aqua color in the paper.)So what do you think?   You can make some fabulous, non-holiday cards using holiday themed pap…

Pumpkin Spice–What Time Is It?

Hello! Today is my day to post on the Pumpkin Spice blog. My card fits our current challenge, “Time”. We would love to see your project with either a word or element that implies time. I have to admit I was a bit stumped by the challenge at first. I could only think of clocks and watches, but I didn’t have any stamps that would fit. I finally had my “Ah ha!” moment and thought about looking up a quote about time. I found this quote from John Lennon that I really liked and the idea for my card grew from there and these beautiful Pebbles Inc. papers.I love these new papers from Pebbles, Inc. The colors are so bright and cheery, I had to use them to chase away the spring gloom we have right now. I love each of the 18 patterns (2 pages of each) included in the 6x6 pad.I hope this helps to inspire you to think out of the box and create a project for our “Time” challenge. You can link up your project and find the challenge details HERE. Thank you for stopping by! I hope you have a fabulous …
It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.
