Easter Party Favors I've been having fun making party favors lately.  I am selling them on my Etsy's more: And here's more: Bernie and I are looking forward to Spring and he's started to work in the garden.  We've had some Morning Doves visit us lately; we have lots of backyard birds and quite an investment in bird seed!  But we don't have any household pets...the birds are much easier to care for! We've been such home bodies this winter; we enjoy our home and my craft room is my happy place.  Retirement is wonderful and I wonder how I ever had time to run a store! ###

Time to make St. Patrick's Day Cards!
This is Kit #9 now selling at
I hope all of you had a wonderful Valentine's Day!  I made Bernie a Vanallia Cream Raspberry cake and he went all out and gave me a beautiful necklace!  The cake was too much  for just the two of us, so Bernie took a dozen slices to Whimsey's Scrapbook store to share with their customers!
We are trying to eat healthy and avoiding a lot of sugar but sometimes you just have to give in on special occasions!
Life is good for Bernie and I; we are enjoying retirement and looking forward to Spring.  I'm contemplating doing some spring bazaars!  Trying to think of something to make that will sell well!
