Stampin’ Up! Buffalo Checked Video Sneak Peek

Hey y’all!  Hope your weekend is going well.  We got the car taken care of and…test drove the new Odyssey!  Looks like Honda has bumped their navigation technology into this century so….they may keep my business when it comes time for a new ride.  I LOVE my van.  EVERYthing about it.  EXCEPT the navigation/technology – it’s like….Pong vs my MacBook!  Know what I mean!?

Tomorrow’s a big day – lots of things ending (Bonus Days coupon redemption; Timeless Tidings Project Kit orderability…).  And – a couple of things coming (Stamparatus accessories…).  Just sayin’ – 1 Oct is huge!

Anywho.

I had so much fun yesterday making plaid with the Buffalo Check background stamp that I thought it might be fun for us to play a little on our live video this evening over on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page.  Whatcha think?  Up for a Buffalo-Checked Plaid-A-Pa-Looza?!?  Take a sneaky peek!

I hope it looks like fun to you and that you’ll be able to join me on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page tonight at 8pm Eastern!

In addition to car tending on Saturday, we smoked a brisket.

Yum.  OH!

In preparation for said smoking, Wayne trimmed the whole brisket we got at Sam’s.

There be brisket-sharks about!

That’s a real thing.  Google it!

Stampin’ Up! Pleasant Pheasants on Buffalo Plaid

Good morning, my peeps!  Happy weekend!  Hope you have something fun planned.  We have Oil Change planned.  Bleh.

Did the title of the post take you a-back?  It’s Buffalo CHECK, Mary – not PLAID!

Well – but it CAN be plaid!  And it can be a plaid background for the lovely Pleasant Pheasants stamp set and a perfect Thanksgiving sentiment.  Take a look-see!

My layout for this one is from the FabFriday challenge this week.

And I decided to make my own background for the card thanks to the inspiration from the TGIF Technique Challenge!

I started my plaid background by stamping the Buffalo Check image onto a Very Vanilla panel in Cajun Craze.  I used my Stamparatus to get a good, solid check image.

Then I pulled out my ruler and my Dark Mango Melody and Dark Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.  I created lines with the Mango bullet tip and the Old Olive brush tip.  Speaking of TIPS:  start and end your drawn line OFF of the card stock – that way your lines will be smooth.  Oh – and don’t stop mid-line.  Start AND stop OFF the card stock. 🙂

I decided it needed some stitches – so I added them with the bullet tip on my Dark Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blend.  Then I matted my new plaid background on Mossy Meadow for the card front.

I cut two banners – one in Very Vanilla and one in Crumb Cake – cutting the end with the Banner Triple Punch.  I embossed them both in the new Corrugated Dynamic TIEF and then stacked them and adhered them with Liquid Glue.

I punched a few leaves with the Leaf Punch – two from Mossy Meadow and two from Mango Melody. I sponged the edges of the leaves with their corresponding ink and adhered them with Liquid Glue.

The art, from the Pleasant Pheasants set, is stamped in Soft Suede on Very Vanilla.  I colored it with my Light and Dark Mango Melody, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends.  With my Stamparatus, I added the sentiment in Cajun Craze.

Then I cut it with an oval Stitched Shapes Framelits die and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I added a True Gentleman Button with a Glue Dot then adhered a Linen Thread double-loop Billie-Bow with some Liquid Glue.  Finally, I added a Pearl Basic Jewel that I colored with my Dark Mango Melody Blend.  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Pleasant Pheasants in Cajun Craze on a Very Vanilla panel.  With Soft Suede, I added the leaves image in the corner – and colored the leaves with the same Blends I’d used on the front of the card.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mossy Meadow mat and then into my Crumb Cake card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another garland of Fall leaves on the front…

…and some more Buffalo Check “plaid” on the envelope flap!  I made some more of the plaid on a piece of Very Vanilla, adhered it to the flap and fussy cut it!

Et Voila!  Buffalo Check is the perfect background stamp!  And now you know that, with it, you can make any plaid – any time – any color!!  And the lovely Pleasant Pheasants stamp set is just right as we head into Fall and Thanksgiving.  Hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix

Finn really enjoyed the trip to the tax accountant.  I mean, a ride’s a ride – regardless of the destination!

Also – dogs don’t pay taxes (yet), so there’s really no downside for him!

Once we arrived, there were four of us in the office.

One was collecting our money.

One was having a ton of fun.

Two were…bleh.

Know who was who?

He was pretty intrigued by a tiny person with an equally tiny dog sitting right outside the door…

He was an awfully good boy – only getting up when it started to rain…

He amazes me with his personality.  He bounces for about 5 minutes and then…settles completely.

Boy, did I get lucky with this little man!

Stampin’ Up! Frosted Beautiful Baubles

Good Friday, y’all!  Our taxes are safely in the hands of the accountant.  We had a great trip to Montgomery and back yesterday – should have seen me.  Phone hooked up and hotspot cooking. Work computer and personal computer doing their thing.  Office on wheels working like a boss! 🙂

So – admin note:  Stampin’ Up! let us know that the Timeless Tidings Kit is rapidly reaching the point of going on the not-orderable list.  Please scroll down to get all the details!

Before we went, I made this card to share with you today, using the new Beautiful Baubles stamp set and a few goodies from the Frosted Bouquet and Pretty Pines die sets.  Take a look-see:

I borrowed the idea for the layout from The Paper Players challenge!

I started by adhering a piece of pretty Frosted Floral Specialty DSP to a Merry Merlot mat with Liquid Glue for the card front.  Then I used a couple of Glue Dots to adhere a length of new Tranquil Tide 1/4″ Velvet Ribbon around on an angle – securing it in the back.

I pulled out some Joyous Noel 6″ x 6″ Glimmer Paper and cut some Merry Merlot berries with the adorable die in the Frosted Bouquet Framelits.  I also cut some Tranquil Tide card stock pine boughs with the Pretty Pines Thinlits.

I adhered the boughs and berries to the card front in an oh-so-artistic way with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the Beautiful Baubles ornament in Merry Merlot and fussy cut it.  Then I colored it with my Gray Granite, Tranquil Tide and Merry Merlot Stampin’ Write Markers.  I also “painted” the top and bottom section with my Champagne Shimmer Paint.

I popped the ornament on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a Galvanized Metallic Paper and Tranquil Tide Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper bow (cut with Pretty Pines Thinlits dies) to the top of the ornament with some Liquid Glue.

The sentiment is from the Festive Farmhouse Elements – I painted it with Champagne Mist and then Frost White Shimmer Paint and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I painted a single little star (in the Festive Farmhouse Elements) with Frost White Shimmer Paint and added it to the bow with Liquid Glue.  A few more stars got some Merry Merlot with my Marker, and I added them to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I finished off with some Silver Metallic Pearls on the ornament and the card front and the card was done.

On the inside, I added a Beautiful Baubles sentiment in Granite Gray to a Whisper White panel.  A Tranquil Tide bow and Merry Merlot stars finished it off.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Merry Merlot mat and then into my Gray Granite card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Beautiful Baubles bows and stars on the front…

…and a little of the Frosted Floral Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Beautiful Merry Merlot and Tranquil Tide team up again – this time with the Beautiful Baubles stamp set and Frosted Floral DSP to create an elegant Christmas Card!  Hoep you like!

So the Finn-ster is a boy.

ALL boy.

We’ve seen him in the water – in the mud – in the rain.

So we know it’s true.  He’s all boy.

Well.  Turns out he’s also all MAMA’S boy.

He’s a lap dog snuggle-buddy, for sure!

The tongue.  It’s just killing me!

Stampin’ Up! Joyous Peaceful Noel for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! Today’s a sketch challenge and I know you’ll see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop.

I pulled out a set I hadn’t really used yet – the Peaceful Noel stamp set and bundled Sprig Punch and set those against some beautiful Joyous Noel Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

I decided – since this is most definitely a Christmas card! – to play along again at TGIF Challenge.

I started by adhering a panel of gorgeous Joyous Noel Specialty DSP on a Tranquil Tide mat for the card front.  Isn’t it wonderful how well Merry Merlot and Tranquil Tide play with each other?!?

Next up is a Whisper White panel for the art piece.  I used Tranquil Tide, Sahara Sand and Merry Merlot to stamp images from the Joyous Noel stamp set in a cluster near the bottom of the panel.  I stamped some of the images twice without re-inking to create a little depth.  I matted it on Tranquil Tide and then to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I punched a couple of Tranquil Tide leaves from the Joyous Noel 6″ x 6″ Glimmer Paper using the Sprig Punch.  Then I adhered them with Liquid Glue.

The sentiment, from Joyous Noel, is heat embossed in Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder on a piece of Whisper White, then cut with an oval Stitched Shapes Framelits die.

I put a few Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the sentiment oval and used them to wind some loops of Linen Thread, then adhered the whole thing to the card front.

I tied a Linen Thread Double Loop Billie bow, stuck it onto the card with a squished up Glue Dot and that was it for the card front.

On the inside, I added a few more Joyous Noel images in Sahara Sand, Tranquil Tide and Merry Merlot in the corner of a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Tranquil Tide mat and into my Merry Merlot card front, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more pine boughs, leaves and berries from Joyous Noel on the front…

…and I graced the envelope flap with more of the beautiful Joyous Noel Specialty DSP.

Et Voila!  Pine Boughs.  Leaves.  Berries.  Wonderful sentiments.  Peaceful Noel has it all!  Did I mention PINE boughs?!?  And when you add the other beautiful goodies in the Joyous Noel Suite…well.  Hope you like!

Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop thru all our projects today  If you click on the Next Blog button, you’ll go right to Kristi’s page. And you can just click on the names below to go direct to all the blogs!

Stampin’ Up! Country Home Shutter Gate Fun Fold Card

Happy Hawmp Day, y’all!  This is sort of a cool day for me – I think I mentioned on a Sunday video that I’d been invited to be a guest Tutorial Author on SplitCoast Stampers.  And this is the day my tutorial goes live! 🙂

The card that I made for the tutorial – Dina Kowal asked me to do a Shutter Gate Card for it – was made with the new Country Home stamp set and Country Lane DSP.  Take a look-see:

I know you guys know all about these – I’ve done a few for you over these past couple of years.

They look like a Gate Card on the outside, but…

…slide that belly band off and…

I used Soft Suede for the card base and shutters, then matted my Country Lane DSP on Cajun Craze card stock.

For the Country Home flowers on the front, I stamped the image in Soft Suede on Whisper White and colored them with my Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Cajun Craze, Blackberry Bliss and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends.

I used the circle from the inside cut-out as part of the belly band decoration – don’t toss that circle, y’all! 🙂

The sentiment, from Country Home, is stamped in Mossy Meadow on a piece of Whisper White, then cut with a circle Stitched Shapes Framelits die.  I used Liquid Glue to adhere the flowers and can behind the sentiment – separating them just a bit so you’d be able to get a good look at both of them.

I decorated my Whisper White Medium Envelope – well, duh! – with another Country Home image on the front…

…and a little more Country Lane DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Gate card goes wild!  The inside shutter mechanism is easy to make and I love it in its Country Home and Country Lane livery!  I hope you like!

So – there’s a video with the Wednesday tutorial – and you can find it right here!

Hope you enjoy it if you get a chance to watch!

Today (Tuesday), was bi-annual doggie check-up day!

We went to see Dr. Amanda to get lovings – and a few vaccines – and some kisses – and our heart listened to – and hugs – and our weight (we need to drop a couple!) – and some treats (well – we’ll start the diet tomorrow!).

He was wiggling so hard we could hardly get in the front door!

We had to wait a minute – I mean…it IS a doctor’s office, after all!

Then one of his friends came and took him for his first stick.  Blood work. 🙁

But – he returned, bravely sporting his blue bandaid – and waited impatiently for the “good part”

Finally – Dr. Amanda came in and….the hugging and kissing and petting and loving commenced!

He was panting so hard – cuz of the excitement! – that he had to be shushed just a little bit….so that they could listen to his heart!

Finally – all done!  Bandaid off – just had to wait for his heartworm medicine!

With any luck – we won’t see them again for 6 months.

He IS a boy, though… 😉

Just sayin’!

Stampin’ Up! Festive Hung With Care Christmas!

Morning, y’all!  It’s Tuesday!

Arntcha glad I show up every morning to keep you on track with the days of the week?

It’s National Math Storytelling Day. Apparently Math Storytelling is a thing.

Also…did you know that September is Velociraptor Awareness Month?

Yes – it’s true.  You still have time to send a handmade card to your favorite neighborhood velociraptor.  I know he or she will appreciate it.  Probably more than if you try to tell him or her a math story…

You’re welcome.

Perhaps the card will be a Christmas card – and you might want to make this one.  It uses the Host-Exclusive Hung With Care stamp set.  And some wonderful Festive Farmhouse DSP plaid paper.  Take a look-see:

Being that it’s a Christmas card, I played along with the TGIF Challenge this week!

I started with some of that pretty paper and matted it on Basic Gray card stock for the card front!

Then, on a smaller panel of Very Vanilla card stock, I stamped the fun sentiment and three “hangers” from the Hung With Care stamp set, in Cherry Cobbler ink.

I embossed the panel in the new Tufted Dynamic TIEF and matted it on Basic Gray before adhering it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped three stockings from the set on another piece of Very Vanilla.  I recruited my Stamparatus and, using the marker-to-rubber technique, I colored them with my Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Write Markers.  Then I fussy cut them.

I popped each fussy-cut stocking onto the card front with a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To finish off, I tied three little bows from Linen Thread and adhered them on each stocking with a dab of Liquid Glue!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Hung With Care in Cherry Cobbler to a Very Vanilla card stock.  Another stocking in the corner was all it needed to be done!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Basic Gray mat and into my Mossy Meadow card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another stocking on the front…

…and I added some more of the Festive Farmhouse DSP to the flap.

Et Voila!  Easy peasy, nice and…cozy?  Well – the rhyme sort of fails me, but…the Hung With Care stamp set won’t fail you, I promise!  But to get it. you’ll need to get you some Stampin’ Rewards – cuz that’s the only “currency” that’ll work for a Host-Exclusive set!  Give me a holler and we’ll get you hooked up!

Each morning, after we’ve fed and let the horses eat their breakfast and (since we often slow-roll heading back out) take a little after-breakfast nap (it IS important to let your food digest, right?) – we sweep the aisle.

Cuz we’re neat freaks.

ROFL!!!

Anywho – Finn does try to help.

We sweep everything to one end of the aisle into a little pile so we can pick it up and put it in the spreader.

Hmm.  Standing IN the pile…

Does that make any sort of sense – I mean…if “helping” is the plan?

Wait…what’s that?

Appears he’s not “helping” at all.

Nope.  He’s mining horse hoof parings.

Cuz…yum!

Stampin’ Up! Cotton-Covered Country Home Video Tutorial

Good morning, y’all!  Well – it’s back to the real world and the grind and all that yada yada that is life-outside-an-inkin’-krew-retreat.

Sigh… 🙁

But – we’re already making plans for the Second Annual Inkin’ Krew Retreat – YEAH! – AND we’ll see a lot of these wonderful ladies in November at OnStage (plus some team members who weren’t able to attend this weekend).   So…whoo-hoo!

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate it and hope you enjoyed the time!  If not, but would like to watch the almost-but-totally-not-instant replay….here ’tis!

The card we did is the one I shared with the ladies at the retreat, which made good use of the beautiful new Country Home stamp set and Country Lane DSP. Along with the awesomely awesome new Tin Tile Dynamic TIEF.  Take a look-see:

Now, I (for one), think this would be a perfectly good card to send to a man.  So – I entered it in the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge

I started out by embossing a piece of Galvanized Metallic Paper (LOVE!) in the Tin Tile Dynamic TIEF (also LOVE) and I sponged the edges with Soft Suede ink to distress it a little.  Then I adhered it to a Cajun Craze mat for the card front.

On a piece of wood-grain Country Lane DSP, I stamped the milk can and cotton bouquet image in Soft Suede.  Then I used my Dark and Light Cajun Craze, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends to color it.

When it was all colored up I cut it out with the largest oval Stitched Shapes Framelits die.  Then I matted it on a Cajun Craze scalloped oval (this is the largest scalloped oval die in the Layering Ovals Framelits die).  I popped the matted art onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment, also from Country Home, is stamped in Cajun Craze on a strip of the wood textures Country Lane DSP.  I snipped a little banner end with my Paper Snips.

I slid a Galvanized clip onto the end of the banner and then adhered the whole thing to the oval with Liquid Glue and a Glue Dot (under the clip).

I made the cotton bolls by using small – truly truly little! – pieces of a cotton ball, rolling them up and sticking them onto the art with little dabs of Liquid Glue.  Cute, right?  Just don’t get carried away – a regular ole cotton ball is enough cotton to make about 1,345,923 cards!  Just sayin’!

I finished the card front off with a Linen Thread double loop Billie Bow and a regular bow tied with Mossy Meadow Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine.

On the inside, I inked up the second flower image in the Country Home set with Crumb Cake ink, stamped it off on scrap paper and then stamped it into the middle of a Very Vanilla panel.  I lightly colored it with my Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry and Old Olive Watercolor Pencils.  Over the top I stamped a second sentiment in Cajun Craze.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Cajun Craze mat and into my Mossy Meadow card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another Country Home floral spray on the front – colored with Watercolor Pencils…

…and then I added a little more Country Lane DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Three-D cotton!  Whoda thunk it?  I think it makes the perfect finishing touch on this rustic Country Home card, made even more perfect by the Tin Tile Dynamic TIEF and some Galvanized Metallic Paper.  Hope you like!

Home again home again!

It was hard hard HARD leaving the cottage yesterday!  Our last day was wonderful fun – and, like leaving summer camp, we weren’t ready to leave and get back to “real life”!

I’ve got a couple more pictures to share with you!  We did more make-and-takes (including the card I shared with you today!) on Sunday (well – when we weren’t eating!).

Took a few more pictures of deer – including this shy baby…

ahh…THERE she is!

And we asked James to take a final group shot of all of us – to be sure we commemorated the occasion!

I did take a quick walk on Saturday (to appease my watch!) and took this picture just across the street from the cottage.

Nope.  Got no clue.

So – until the Second Annual Inkin’ Krew Retreat….

Amy and I both did a presentation on our last day highlighting a suite in the 2018 Holiday Catalog.  I chose the Country Lane suite to use – so I made a couple of projects to share with the ladies.  I’ll show you a couple of these later in the week – but for tonight….I’m going to show you the make-and-take we did.  Take a sneaky-peek:

I think we’ll have a good time so I hope you’ll be able to join me!

Finn Fan Fix

Saturday was wonderfully wonderful at Skyview Mountain Cottage!

We staggered into the living room in our pj’s and started drinking coffee and yakking while James made our breakfast!

Blueberry French toast baked casserole with all sorts of yumm-o toppings…and bacon and eggs and Tater Tot Bombs!  Plus healthy options, too!

Hey Blueberries are healthy! 😉

Then we yakked and yakked after breakfast – and we saw one of the denizens of the forest (the cottage is surrounded by a 5500 acre conservancy) up close and personal…

Finally – we adjourned to the craft room!

Sue gave us a tutorial on coloring with Stampin’ Blends.

She.  Is.  An.  Artist!!  Please notice the speckles on this can!

As you might imagine, we were pretty enthralled.

After lunch – tacos! – Amy did a super blogging talk and then we worked on the rest of the shoebox swaps for the remainder of the day!

Today’s our last day.  🙁  It’s going to be hard to leave and go back to reality (and no James-catering-to-our-every-need!!).  It’s been such a great weekend – we have the BEST group of folks in our teams and it’s been a joy spending this time with them!

Stampin’ Up! Flourish Filigree in Copper and Merry Merlot

Good Saturday morning, y’all, from the Ellijay mountains in North Georgia!

As I write this, we’re doing shoebox swaps after our fine dinner prepared by Chef James!  Check out the Finn-Fan-Fix-not-featuring-Finn for more on our Retreat!

The card I have for you today is an elegant Christmas project using the new Flourish Filigree stamp set and some Joyous Noel Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

I played along with the Global-Design-Project challenge this week which is a CASE the Designer challenge – with guest designer Kerstin Kreis.

I started with a piece of the Joyous Noel Specialty DSP that I matted on Crumb Cake, using Liquid Glue, for the card front.

On a piece of Merry Merlot, I stamped the large-and-lovely filigree image from Flourish Filigree in Versamark – then I sprinkled it with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  Then I heated it up with my Heat Tool.

When it had cooled, I cut the panel down to size and matted it on Crumb Cake.  Then I adhered the panel to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used some Glue Dots to add a couple of new Snowflakes & Stars Wire Elements down in the corner.

I stamped the sentiment from Flourish Filigree in Merry Merlot on a piece of Crumb Cake, then punched it with the Pretty Label Punch.  I added a few Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the punched sentiment and used them to wind several loops of Copper Metallic Thread.  Then I popped the sentiment over the Wire Snowflakes.

On the inside, I matted more of the Joyous Noel Specialty DSP on Crumb Cake.  On a Whisper White panel, I stamped the filigree image in stamped-off-once Crumb Cake in the corner.  Over that I added a second sentiment from Flourish Filigree in Merry Merlot.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Crumb Cake mat and then onto the matted DSP and into my Merry Merlot card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a full-strength Crumb Cake filigree image in the corner…

…and then I added a little more Joyous Noel DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Elegant in Copper and Merry Merlot – the Flourish Filigree stamp set shines atop Joyous Noel Specialty DSP!  Wonderful for Christmas, don’t you think?  I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix

Today (Friday), Finny is keeping his Dad company in Atlanta while I’m up in Ellijay enjoying a wonderful weekend retreat with good friends, good food, and a great place!

I give you…Skyview Mountain Cottage!

This.  Place.  Is.  Gorgeous!

And – we have a most gracious host…meet James!

He’s cooking for us this weekend – and had snacks and drinks and coffee and appetizers all set out and ready for our arrival.

Heaven, y’all.

Just sayin’!

Here’s a little pictorial tour!

Upstairs is a wonderful living and dining room….

Check out that table!

Then the downstairs is the crafting area!

Love the frame on this downstairs mirror…

There’s a resident kitty.  Named Max.  He’s a real fireball!

And there are some other residents of the area checking us out!

We spent the first evening doing some Shoebox swaps and getting settled into our room!  And I did a presentation about doing Facebook Live videos!

Y’all checkout the Skyview Mountain Cottage website – and if you’re in this neck of the woods, you should try to get to one of their open-houses!  This spot was purpose-built FOR crafting!  It’s AMAZE-BALLS!

More on our weekend tomorrow!
