A 10 Minute Piece

This year will be another quick one. Without knowing it, it’s passed the middle of January! I was supposed to post this yesterday but a very special personal event came up and I simply forgot and so if you’re a WPlus9 AND the Craft Dash fan, so sorry! I did have a different card to share but earlier today I had a little woolly get together and I crocheted the flower. A bit of glue gun, ribbon and sentiment, voila, a less than 10 minutes piece! I’ll share my other card next time I post {::SMILE}. I hope you’re January’s

Hello 2013!!

2012 went by way too fast! It was a fabulous year for us and while I am not always right, I feel it in my bones that 2013 will be as wonderful! I hope your 2012 wasn’t so bad and that 2013 will bring you all many many opportunities, great health and happiness!! I am not sure why. Maybe because there will be many big milestones for the girls. Or maybe because I am hoping to actually do some work this year. But I am a bit giddy about this year!! I feel like many great things will come our

A Special Holiday Giveaway

Hi!! Hope you all had a great Christmas with your loved ones. We did and the girls can’t wait for Santa to come again — although I think in Jovie head Santa hasn’t arrived yet because he didn’t actually knock on her door and her greeting him in person. So as of this writing, Jovie was still asking when Santa’s coming. Aahhh… It’s always sad when your most favorite holiday goes by and so to keep the fun going, WPlus9 has a really fun giveaway for you! THE DETAILS Each of us has hand picked a stamp set and die

A Little Christmasy Project

Last Sunday Emma and three of her girlie friends came over to do some arts and crafts. There were lots of talks, giggles, a bit of play and a lot of crafting. I was actually a bit surprised. I thought they’d do a bit of craft work and then spend the whole day playing. The girls had a great time but I think the highlight of their craft moment was when they got to use the Sizzix machine and WPlus9 die-cuts to create all sorts of goodness. They cut out some snow flakes, Christmas trees, tags, hearts, and more. One

WPlus9 Day 3

We got our tree up!! We had a few snags, e.g. only half the twinkling lights were working, but we did it! It was really nice to sit in the living room, relaxing, while smelling the fresh scent of pine. LOVE!! Emma and her friends did have a lovely craft day today. They had a fantastic time and created a lot of goodness. I think though they’re favourite part was using the Sizzix + WPlus9’s die-cuts to cut felt and sewing/gluing them onto their projects. They (and also their mums) thought the Sizzix was the coolest thing {::SMILES}. Today I

WPlus9 Day 2

And we’re another day closer to Christmas!!! {::SMILE} We did all sorts of holiday activities this weekend which included sitting on Santa’s lap and getting a tree that was almost “Elf” ish (photos inserted from Instagram, add me: scwilder for the description of each image): Another card share today and of course it’s from none other than the wonderful WPlus9! I did a simple layered card for today. I said simple because there’s nothing intricate to the putting together of this piece. While I could have added more sizzle with some sewing around the edges, distressing, inking, etc, I decided
