It's Been A Long Time.....

Seems like I just keep complaining about how long it's been since I posted. I can't believe an entire month passed but guess I just need to realize how busy I am.
A friend of mine showed me how to make a super easy pillowcase. The instructions were from a blog that is no longer. Not sure who the originator is and I would hate not to give a person credit where it is due. You can google "easy pillowcase" and find a video that shows you how. Here's a picture of mine. For those who have little ones, or make "holiday" pillowcases, this is a super easy one. You only need to know how to sew 3 straight lines.
Supplies needed are: 3/4 yd for the main pillow case, 1/8 yd for contrasting trim and 1/3 yd for the cuff. Super, super easy and fun!
The other thing I am super excited about is my Copic Cubbies.
 Bought them online at
Copic markers can be stored standing up or laying down. Once capped, they are airtight and how you store them does not matter. These cubbie shelves are a bit slanted so they are not sitting flat. I actually ending up laying  my cubbies on their side because it worked out better for my stamp table.
Also...recently returned from a fabulous long weekend in Henderson with my sister, my mom and some friends. We call it Scrapfest but we really just talk, play on our laptops, share ideas, shop, eat, laugh, get very little sleep and have a ton of fun. As a "Thank You" gift for our hostesses, I made these little Nugget Tins.
 All supplies are available at
